  1. Hello everyone, After a stressful interview cycle, I am fortunate enough to be accepted to both MEDEX Seattle and Rush Chicago. I'm trying to decide which program to attend. I live in Seattle, my parents/friends can be my support system. In my clinical year, I can move back home to save on rent money when I move to my rotation sites. I love traveling and meeting new people. Attending PA program in Chicago will be such an adventure. Also, Rush's class size is significantly smaller MEDEX's (30 vs 50). My background is in EM and I'm planning to practice in EM after graduation. Due to th
  2. Greetings future PAs, My name is Elizabeth and this is my second year applying to MEDEX with my first interview. I am very excited and nervous at the same time. I'm unsure on how the Zoom interview will go and I want to reach out to anyone else that feels the same way. Id love to get to know a few of you prior to the Zoom interview to feel a bit more comfortable. I look forward to meeting you all on 11/14, and hopefully one day in the classroom. Sincerely, Elizabeth Boudreau

  4. This is going to sound pretty dumb but I'm serious! I'm so confused when it comes to applying to PA schools regarding the prerequisite coursework. I know MEDEX say that the courses can't be a part of prior training, but then I read online articles about how to incorporate prereqs for PA schools into your undergrad experience, killing 2 birds with 1 stone sorta thing...I understand the necessary courses. But I'm having a hard time discerning if the coursework can have been done as a part of one's undergrad. For example the cellular bio I took in my undergrad. Will that be applicable to MEDEX? O
  5. Hey everyone, It was great to meet so many amazing, skilled people at the interview yesterday! I was wondering if anyone wanted to keep in touch after the interviews? It’s always good to network, right? Anyway, hit me up if anyone wants to talk about anything PA related or not. I wish everyone the best of luck in all your interviews and future PA endeavors! My email is: klmauldin@gmail.com Katie Mauldin
  6. I believe invites for Anchorage interviews were around this time last year (based on last years ANC forum feed). Starting this topic for news, collaboration and support. Good luck to all.
  7. Hi everyone! I did not see a forum started for this year's cycle specifically to the Tacoma site so I thought I would start one.
  8. Hey everyone! I am creating this form so everyone that who has received an acceptance phone call/letter can communicate together more efficiently. Has anyone received a phone call yet? If and when you receive an acceptance phone call/letter be sure to let us know so everyone can keep track of who is going to be the future classmates of Tacoma Class 6. Best wishes to everyone!
  9. I'd like to meetup on Friday in the evening if anyone is interested. I'm thinking seven seas brewing, it's close to campus.
  10. Good Morning Everyone, Yesterday I attended the re-applicant information session at UW in Seattle (March 23rd) and I would like to compare notes and find out if any questions get answered. I fell victim to the CASPA mess last fall, but I do have several areas that I can improve in. Anyways, I am going to jot down some of my notes and takeaways from the session. Feel free to critique and add some points. PLEASE call me out if I'm wrong.

  11. Felt it would be prudent to make a separate thread for those wanting to meet up before the interview, share anxious thoughts, offer help to those coming from out-of-town on place to stay (if you haven't found one already), transport, etc. @fluidworks I'd definitely like to meet up before the big day. For pubs, the College Inn, in the U-District, has big tables and is in walking distance of the hotels suggested in the mailing info. There are also many fairly cheap restaurants around the area. One week!
  12. Just submitted my CASPA application! Now to work on the supplemental. Best of luck to everyone, can't wait to hear your updates.
  13. These two essays are for the MEDEX supplemental statements. I have thick skin, so feel free to be very critical! Please compose a personal narrative statement that answers the above questions. Personal statements allow MEDEX to get a greater understanding of your experience and personal character. Keep in mind that we will have your CASPA personal statement and we do not want a duplication of the CASPA statement. Please limit this personal statement to 1000 words. Remember to format the statements with a space between paragraphs. 1. Based on the MEDEX mission statement, tell us how you
  14. Well, we survived the day! Time to pat yourself on the back. This has definitely been the most interesting style of interview I've ever encountered. I don't feel like I was able to gauge my candidacy, but I'm crossing my fingers that I will open my mailbox and find an acceptance letter in it, at some point. Any thoughts or comments regarding the day? Good luck to you all and I hope we meet again as the class of 2018!! Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  15. Hi everyone, this is my first time posting a question, although I've lurked for quite sometime ;) I'm currently finishing up my AS degree as a medical assistant but I will still need a few pre-reqs before applying to a PA program--I hope to complete them while working/earning my HCE and could use some advice. My program of choice doesn't require the science course to have a lab component but they would like 5 quarter credits. The classes that I've seen online (some offering labs, some not) have only been 4 quarter credits. How much do you think this would impact my chances of being accepted?
  16. Hello, My name is Phil, and I am scheduled for an interview for the MEDEX Seattle Masters program on 11/19. If anyone is in the Seattle area and would like to meet up to grab coffee and a small bite to eat a week/couple days in advance, I am putting the invitation out for 2:00 pm on Saturday November 14th, at Cafe Solstice (4116 University Way NE, Seattle, WA 98105.) Cafe Solstice is two blocks west of the UW Seattle campus. Meeting other candidates will make the morning, heading into the interview, much easier knowing a few people than it will on your own. I'm looking forward to meeting all
  17. Hello fellow Spokane hopefuls! Wanted to start things off with a post that we can all share our excitement and nervousness for the upcoming interview session. I received that wonderful email a few days ago inviting me to the Spokane campus for interviews. Who else is coming? I will be driving over from the Tacoma area the night before and coming back to the Tacoma area on Sunday. Jeff
  18. I have my interview dec 13th at uw tacoma. I am super excited. Wondering if there are any current students from tacoma campus that could shed some light on interview questions and such.
  19. I'm a recent graduate and am about to start working in IM in a few weeks. I'm definitely really nervous, probably more so because it is my first job but also because I'm doing IM! I decided to go with IM when I graduated because it's general medicine and would give you a feel for everything and also because I wasn't sure what I wanted to specialize in. I'm just curious as to how it was like for other people with their first IM job. Appreciate it. Thank you. :)
  20. Hello MEDEX Tacoma applicants, I am a new member who applied to the Tacoma site and waiting to hear back (hopefully with an interview)! Has anyone else heard back yet? I know Tacoma is generally behind the rest in terms of interview dates. We can also share a little about ourselves here as we may be classmates in the near future. Good luck to everyone!
  21. Has anyone heard about any additional interviews for Tacoma #2.
  22. Hello, My name is Matthew Peterson and I am looking for some shadowing hours in the Kenosha, Racine, Milwaukee WI area. Thank you! mtthwpeterson30@yahoo.com
  23. I am in the process of starting a Pre-PA group in Fairbanks. Here are a few of my ideas for the group: Currently, I am trying to get list of PAs that have no problem letting us shadow them. Also, I'm trying to find a few different PAs that would do a question and answer session for us. I know of 3 PAs that recently graduated from MEDEX and hoping they will be willing to talk. Maybe we could even go to anchorage when MEDEX has information sessions? Once we get a good group together I think it will be valuable for us to do mock surveys and look over each others persona
  24. Hi pa students and pa's, I am an international student in a community college, I wanted to go to med school initially and was a premed for a year in a 4 yr college, but I learned that only one private school in the u.s accepts international students, so I decided to perdue nursing in a community college but I recently learnt about pa school and I would love so much to work as a P.A. I have worked in healthcare for 3 years now. I have 2 relatives working as P.A's and my boyfriend is finishing his medical residency and I have learned so much from them. My question is, am I an eligible candidate
  25. There is really only one PA program I want apply to, Medex. Over the last few months I have been trying to beef up my application so I can apply next year. Can you please give me some advice on what I can approve. Also, what are my chances of getting into the MEDEX program. My husband is military, but I'm born and raised in Alaska. Currently we are stationed in Fairbanks. Own a cabin in Soldotna and plan to retire here. I am 25, no kids, love live and have a very friendly personality. I do not have a degree, my GPA however is a 3.8. I do have a few more classes to take and I'm hoping it s
