  1. This may seem really dumb, but I'm wondering about the physics prereq requirement. The Red Rocks web site says "Physics (math-based)." Isn't it always math-based...but sometimes algebra and sometimes calculus? I specifically asked whether the Intro to Physics class at Metro would fulfull the requirement, and the answer I received was "yes, as long as it's math based." Can anyone clarify this for me?
  2. I've begun my CASPA application for this year (my first) and don't know if I should report the total amount of hours I have accrued or a less accurate non-wait time only estimate? It comes to about 2,700 total hours as a EMT-B over 1 year and 3 months. Some programs seem to want only non-wait time included hours and others do not mention that specifically. What would you suggest? -Thanks
  3. I am trying to think of jobs/experience you can get for PA school. What did you guys do for the experience? So far, I can only think of CNA, EMT-B, and Patient Care Technician. Any other jobs that are useful? Also, is it okay to be a CNA for one year, then an EMT-B for another year? I was thinking of having different jobs all throughout college. Is this a good or bad idea? I heard PA schools like "varied" experiences so is that considered varied?? What are your thoughts on this? thanks so much!
  4. Hello, I have recently decided to go to school to become a PA, specializing in dermatology. I have worked for a dermatologist for the past 8 years as a medical assistant/esthetician in chicago. I also assist in MOHS Surgery. I have a long road ahead but know this is the dream I have always wanted. I only have medical assistant school behind me, NOTHING more. Can someone please talk with me about what I need to do to get started with school? I dont know what is needed or where to even begin. I did set up a meeting with a academic advisor at the university, but I would like to go in with some knowledge! Thank you so much.
