  1. Thought I would get this page started! Good luck everyone!
  2. Okay so I plan on going to pa shcool when I turn 27. After college I worked for a health department and now I’m going to work as a clinical dietitian for a year or so and take classes. So ideally I would apply in 2019 and then start in 2020. At that point I’ll be 27. Is that too old to start to start ??
  3. Has anyone gone from working in the ED to an urgent care position? I would love to hear about anyone's experience with that or other perspectives. Why'd you make the switch? Slower pace? Better hours? Do you get bored? Just curious. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Hello Everyone, I have recently been accepted to WesternU and Midwestern University in Glendale, and I am torn. If anyone has advice on which school would provide a better education, please let me know! I've heard one of Western's teachers is pretty bad but I haven't heard anything about Midwestern. I know that US World News and Report has ranked Midwestern substantially higher, but I would appreciate more insight if anyone can help. Thanks!
  5. If you can basically get a Bachelors degree in what ever you want to, then why do PA schools even require it. Why can't you just take the pre-requisites and gain HCE and apply?
  6. Hi everyone! I am curious how everyone funds their schooling. I am currently applying for PA school next year and am not sure how I'm going to pay for it. I plan on taking out a lot of loans, but you are only allowed around $40,000 in loans per year, which is what the programs I'm looking at cost. Since I am unable to have a job during the program and I'm not receiving any outside funding from family, spouse, etc. I am concerned about how I will pay for housing and food. Can anyone who is/was in a similar situation tell me how they pay/paid for housing and food during PA school? Can you ta
  7. I am a PA-C, ATC planning on switching from FP to ortho soon. I have been working as a PA in a non-profit family practice clinic treating patients without insurance for 2.5 years. After learning a LOT at my current position, I am ready to move on to my first love, orthopedic surgery. I currently have a couple of interviews lined up, and I haven't thought about money in a couple of years. I want to make sure I'm starting out in the appropriate salary range and not selling myself short. Thoughts?
  8. I haven't seen a sticky anywhere on this topic, so please feel free to simply re-direct me if there is a thread with this information already. I am really wanting the best financial advice (or advice otherwise) you guys can offer for someone just entering the work force. It is daunting to go from exceptionally poor to making substantial money in the blink of an eye. Some topics I am hoping you can give advice about or direct me to more knowledge include: Retirement Investment (stocks, bonds, mortgages, property, etc...) Life Insurance / Disability Insurance Money Management (money
  9. Hi i'm in a horrible situation right now and would like some advice before I go forward. I have 3 C's in general biology 1, general biology 2, and chemistry 1. I took these 3 courses during my first few semesters when I was taking general science courses and had no planned major to motivate me. I obviously was not prepared for these classes and did poorly in them. Eventually I figured out what my major was (physician assistant) and started doing MUCH better in school. The past 2 years i've had straight A's in hard classes such as anatomy and physiology, microbiology, genetics, medical term

  11. Im worried about paying for tuition as i will be attending. tuition is roughly 45k i barely make any money now (10k a year maybe before taxes!) and i wont be working when i start school. My parent wont be helping with anything so its just me. Anyone know how much fafsa can give and how much in loans i can expect to be getting? curious what others have received and techniques for paying for PA school. If i did get loans i would obviously like loans where i dont have to pay interest while in school. Thanks in advance!!
  12. Is anyone else interviewing Jan 9? Or if anybody has already interviewed, what is the process like? I attempted to call and ask, but I am awaiting their response. Any tips or tricks you've learned about such a new program? Thanks!
  13. Hi Everyone - I am trying to create some specialty-related "top ten" lists for clinical rotations. I know there are a ton of emergency medicine PAs on here. A student is coming to rotate with you for a month. What would you say are the top 5-10 skills/competencies/misc that they must have learned by the end of their time with you?
  14. Hi everyone.. Im having a difficult time passing the PANCE exam. I was considering taking the three day course CME resources. 3 day 100% guarantee?? how accurate is this? I unfortunately have failed this exam several times and would really be interested in one on one tutoring. Im in St. Petersburg Florida. Is there anyone willing to help a fellow PA out?? will compensate. :smile: I would really appreciate any insight on taking action for prepping for this exam. I own the chicago review...didn't help.
  15. How much do you save for PA school? How long did this take you? What was your original savings goal, and did you achieve it? I know folks talk about saving money, but with the numbers of pre-PA out there who are CNAs, etc, I'm wondering how much people are starting PA school with. I've managed to save 10k, but I am in the pre-reqs phase so I'm not sure how much of that will survive till graduation. Are people talking about going in with 20 or $30,000 in the bank, or a couple thousand? Thanks!
  16. Hello I am a first year PA student and I am struggling with my gross Anatomy class and cadaver labs. It seems like the harder I study for these classes, the worse my grades get. Obviously, I am doing something wrong. One of my problems is that I study by myself all the time because I always feel like study groups study at a fast pace for me. Therefore, I end up studying by myself and not understanding the material:( I just found one study partner and it seems to help a little. I need to bring up my grade for anatomy ASAP. Any suggestions? Thanks
