  1. Hello all, I'm brand new to this forum. I graduated with a degree in biology and a gpa of 3.52, and was planning to go to medical school the whole way through, while also thinking a lot about PA school. I was ready to apply to med school while I was finishing college, but decided to take some time away from the academic environment to make sure I really wanted to do med school. After almost a year of soul-searching, researching and deliberation (in addition to the last 4 years), I have finally decided that PA is a more appropriate career path for me. I had a great mcat score (93%) and I h
  2. Hello all, I am a new grad and have been applying to lots of jobs. Some places reply quickly with a response to an application, mostly that I am not qualified, but there are a lot of applications that I have submitted about a month ago and haven't heard anything back yet. I know it takes time to review all applicants they receive and contact references and with the holidays it will delay the process some, but I was wondering based on others experience if it usually takes a while to hear back. Thank you!
  3. I'm a soon to be new grad and I have three job interviews coming up. What do you all think would be good questions to ask at the interview? They are all rheumatology practices. I don't think there will be much contract discussion at that time, so I'm looking more for practice related questions. Teaching and patient load are questions I'll definitely be asking. Thanks!
  4. Hi folks! Thanks for taking a few minutes to read this post I wanted to take a second to let you know about a new MCAT prep app for iPhone/iPod Touch that’s been released via iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id765420896 This app by Sprokit, Inc is really useful and a very efficient way to prep for the MCAT without having to lug around a backpack full of flashcards, books, prep guides and other resource materials. It really allows you to optimize every free second you have available to study whenever, wherever you like -- For example, this makes studying on your daily commute
  5. Hello, I'm new to this forum and am desperately seeking advice. I've been debating between MD/DO or PA for practically my entire undergraduate career. (Will be an incoming 4th year next year). This summer, I decided to enroll in a prep course to take the MCAT in September, planning to go to medical school. But now, I realize that I have been questioning this "final" decision since the beginning of my MCAT studies. My question is that I don't know if I should still take my MCAT in September. I know I'm not studying as much as I can, and I feel like its partially due to being unmotivat
  6. Hi everyone, I know it's typically considered a bad idea to take the MCAT if you intend on applying to PA schools, but I'm taking it. I'm not using PA school as a "fall-back" option. I must sound just about crazy for taking it, haha. With that out of the way, will PA schools be able to see my scores if I don't tell AAMC to send my scores to the schools I'm applying to? (Another question I've been pondering: can schools see what other schools I'm applying to?) Thanks a bunch! Edit: I thought I posted this in the Pre-PA section; could a moderator please move this if appropriate? That'
  7. Hey everybody, Probably not the most original post but here it goes - after a few years on the pre-med path I am starting to seriously consider PA school. I graduated undergrad last May with a decent GPA ~ 3.5, took the MCAT last January and got a 27. At that time I felt DO school was the right choice for me but within the last two weeks my doubts have accumulated to the point where I am now posting on this forum. I work as a medical scribe in an ER and seeing the PAs in action has inspired me. I like the position of working with doctors in that setting without necessarily seeing myse
  8. I am really struggling with whether or not to stay in my PA program. I have 6 months left of my didactic year, but I am not sure if I want to continue. I am 100% sure that I want to be a PA, but this new program has so many problems with it: shortage of professors, professors that we have are qualified on paper but ineffective, violations of student confidentiality from the faculty, and a bunch of dumb****s as students who have even taken sexually explicit photographs with some of the cadavers. One of the biggest issues is that this school is situated in a small town; many of the underquali
