Hey all, I thought I'd get the 2021-2022 Application Cycle thread rolling! I submitted on 5/11 and was verified on 5/12. Good luck everyone, I can't wait to see what this cycle brings!!!!!
Hello all, For this cycle, I have had the privilege of being accepted into two PA programs so far. And more interviews to come! My heart is telling me to go to program B, but my brain is telling me to stick with program A. I guess I am wowed by the flashy offerings of program B over program A that finally helps me feel at home at a educational institution(something I didn't have during my undergrad as a first gen student). Maybe this is me doubting myself, but somehow I feel I may not be as academically successful with a PA program that is only two years long because of the material crunch. The only thing holding me back from program B is graduating with crippling debt by the age of 28 , especially because I had a full ride to college. Any and all honest opinions welcome. What would you do? Program A - 25 months - Tuition 85-90k - PANCE 93-97% - Smaller city in midwest, cost of living fairly low - Less time during clinical rotation phase/means less specialties I can explore? - Has all the essentials technology/skill labs Program B - Top ranked program (probably doesn't matter) - 30ish months with longer breaks - Tuition 170-180k - PANCE 91-96% - Larger faculty - Part of teaching hospital - Big city, cost of living is larger - Large alumni network/more leadership CAPA opportunities
