  1. Hello, I am a high school senior that is interested in becoming a PA. I‘m currently in the process of applying to colleges and would like to know what major would be the best for me to pursue.

You can also get all your clinical hours acquired through this route, and work as a nurse before applying to PA school to finish courses or to pay off loans.

  5. I was pre-physical therapy but after doing research I realized thats not for me and PA's actually have more autonomy than PTs.
