  1. I didn't see this, so I figured I would get it started. I just got an e-mail inviting me for an interview on Friday, June 23rd! Anyone else applying/interviewing with Mary Baldwin? Any current students have any insight on the program?
  2. Hi guys, just wanted to start a thread for Hardin-Simmons' 2016-2017 application cycle. This is a developing program with the first class to matriculate next year! I read that interviews will be in November. Any more info about this school/program would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  3. Saw this was a new program on caspa, was wondering if anyone has heard anything about it. I couldn't find any information from the university's website directly about the program.
  4. I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread for people to post their successful CASPA essays so that new applicants can get a better idea of what schools are looking for as they write their own. I will begin by posting a link to mine below (it is posted in my blog). Please comment with your own examples if you are an accepted student. My CASPA Personal Statement (as an example)
  5. Hi there! I've been keeping an eye out for this thread to be created so I figured I would get the ball rolling! I submitted to FSU on August 9th and received an email from them on August 30th stating my application had been sent to the admissions committee for review. Interviews will begin in January 2017. As a Seminole alum, I look forward to hearing both from the program and any other hopeful applicants! :)
  6. Very interesting article Appears that the NCCPA filled Governor Jim Justice head with a bunch of alternative facts, but when the real facts came out he realized his error..... http://www.wvgazettemail.com/gazette-op-ed-commentaries/20170603/rafael-rodighiero-justice-prevails-with-bill-to-improve-patient-care Governor Jim Justice made the right decision this week to include House Bill 116, and its companion bill Senate Bill 1014, on his special legislative session agenda. This legislation enhances the ability of physician assistants (PAs) to provide health care to people who
  7. The Bryant University PA Program, faculty, staff, and students fully oppose the proposed AAPA policy regarding Full Practice Authority and Responsibility (FPAR) for PAs. We believe that all aspects of the proposed FPAR policy, with the exception of independent practice created by the proposed elimination of all legal ties to physicians, are already addressed by existing AAPA policy, specifically, the AAPA Model State Legislation for PAs and Guidelines for State Regulation of PAs. Any current restrictions and limitations on PA Practice that are supposedly addressed by FPAR can be addressed an
  8. Since 1998 US News has been publishing the only known ranking of PA programs. Their rankings are based on subjective peer assessment surveys of PA program faculty. A useful ranking system should be “measurable, reproducible, and not opinion based! Physician Assistant Programs Ranked by PANCE Pass Rates 2017 http://www.thepalife.com/best-pa-schools/
  9. I thought all of the newly accepted students might appreciate this post from my blog. It is a list of all of the software/websites/apps that my class has used and found useful when studying for tests in PA school. Hope it helps! http://pajourney.com/2016/02/20/technology-that-helps-me-survive-pa-school/
  10. After 2 semesters in my program, I (and many of my peers) fear how much of this information I am forgetting after each test. Teachers and faculty keep telling us to "trust the process". So I wrote a short blog post on what exactly that "process" is and what information is retained as you progress through didactic year. Feel free to comment with your own thoughts below. Hope you find this post helpful! 2 Semesters Down! What Stays and What Goes?

  12. So I will be finishing PA school soon and I really want to help my parents out by giving them money over the next 3 years. I am interested in emergency medicine but for the next 3 years I am willing to work anywhere as long as it maximizes income. I plan on being very frugal over this time period so I can hopefully give 80% of my salary to my family. Are there any suggestions for where I can work to absolutely maximize income? I don't care about location, specialty, or work hours. I am willing to work 60+ hours/wk if needed. I am currently in Chicago and the job offers I have heard for new
  13. Hey! I have read a few forums concerning my topic but have not found anything directly related, therefore I decided to start my own forum. So I went to community college my freshman year and transferred to a state school for my sophomore year (currently in first semester). The pre reqs I took at cc were general bio 1 and 2 with labs and inorganic chem 1 and 2 with labs. I have researched a few PA programs around me and out of the 9 that I plan on applying to only 1 requires Orgo 1. Therefore I am taking that now with lab and working really hard to get an A to show an upward trend since I got
  14. There are a lot of factors that can be taken in to account when selecting the right PA program. I want to know what factors you think will (or have) most influence your decision to attend a program.
  15. I wanted to share my latest blog post on here. It is about the challenges of starting PA school and what to expect in your first two months. Hope that some of you find it useful: http://pajourney.com/2015/07/16/head-above-water/
  16. Hey guys, so a while ago I posted a thread about undergrad grades and getting into PA school which I am obviously aware is very competetive. I recently got a copy of my transcript and my final GPA was a mediocre 2.42 mainly due to one very bad Junior year (Not going to go into detail as to why but the other three years are pretty normal.) My major GPA was closer to a 3 and I never took any science or PA pre req courses which I suppose is the good news. Obviously the past is done and I can't change that and I do plan on taking classes and getting A's but I feel like even that won't make me
  17. Hello, I have a few questions about PA school that I'm hoping someone could answer. What are the clinical tasks that are required? I ask this because I have a slight resting hand tremor and want to know how much you have to rely on your hands for fine motor tasks. I'm debating taking tremor meds only for the course of the program if I'm accepted since I want to specialize in psychiatry where the tremor wouldn't matter. Also, if anyone has experience/ advice on how to specialize in psych that would be great to hear- the nearest PA program to me is geared toward primary care ( like most pr
  18. The American Association of Surgical PAs will offer a meeting designed for those interested in or actively apply to PA School. This seminar will include amazing insights on the profession, training, future as well as interview tips and a chance for one-on-one time with PAs who work on admissions committees. Bring a draft of your essay for review! AASPA is proud to be one of the first professional PA organizations to host a seminar specifically tailored to helping people realize their dreams of becoming a Physician Assistant. You will spend two hours with thought leaders in the PA profession

  20. I have been accepted to a few different programs and am having trouble deciding between them. Of these, I am torn between two: Both have awesome PANCE pass rates and I was impressed with the faculty and students when I visited. One program is 24 months, while the other is 35 months. At this point, the differences in lengths are of greatest concern. Do you attend a longer or shorter program and what are your opinions regarding the differences? Is a longer program more comprehensive, or slightly less rigorous? I'm less concerned with overall cost at this point. Any comments are greatly appre
  21. I checked th MEDEX website and it says that they don't have an anatomy lab .. Anyone know about that .. They say anatomy is done online . ..is it okay for PAschools to not have an antomy lab ? Just wondering !
