  2. Hey all! I'm currently a pre physician assistant student studying health sciences at Boise State. I'm looking to apply for PA school in the next couple of years. I've been looking around for PAs to shadow in the Boise area but haven't really had any luck. If anybody on here that is either a PA in the area or knows of one that would be willing to let me follow them around for a while as to get a better understanding of what it is like in the day of life of a PA and would send me a message on here that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  3. Hey all! My name is Monica Laguna and I am currently a first year physician assistant student at Le Moyne College in Syracuse, NY. I am interested in moving to and practicing in Idaho after graduation in August 2016 and if it is at all possible, I would like to set up some clinical rotations for my second year (2015-2016) in the Boise, ID area. If there is an currently practicing MD, PA, or NP that is willing to precept a student in the Boise area, please let me know! I have documents that are readily available if you need further information on my program or myself. Thank you for your help!
  4. I've been dealing with a lot of back and forth with the graduate admissions office and don't know what to do at this point. Once they received the transcript for the undergrad institution I'm getting my bachelors at, they e-mailed me a request for official transcripts from Advanced Placement and AARTS/ACE (military transcript for basic training and specialty training). Neither one of these are colleges so they don't mail out paper transcripts. I had an official electronic transcript from AARTS sent because that's the only kind the federal government offers for this professional coursework. The grad admissions office told me that electronic transcripts aren't official and that the college needs to send a paper one, referring me to the guidelines, but because it's NOT a college the guidelines are actually irrelevant and I can't seem to fix this issue. If they don't process my app for this reason, won't they be denying me because I am a veteran? The AP issue was very surprising to me because schools are usually so familiar with it. The grad admissions office, however, told me that I took AP courses through a college that my high school had an agreement with, which is completely false, and that's why they are telling me to send a transcript. They said that's how I received credit, which is also false. The credit came from my current school after they determined that my scores on AP exams were good enough to be equivalent to coursework there. I've sent them all of the documentation I can, and I'm currently down $175 between all the fees for just this program so I don't want to give up, but I don't know how to get them to process my app if they keep requesting things that don't actually exist. Has anyone had similar issues that they figured out how to fix or does anyone have any suggestions for me? I don't want to upset them, but I need them to send my application to the PA program and at this point they won't. Thanks for any advice you can give!
  5. hi, i wanted to ask all you guys, professional PAs, that are you happy with what you do? Being PA might be lots less stressful than being MD, assuming here, don't know the facts, but are you guys happy with what you do day in and day out? it will be interesting hear different perspectives on this.
