  1. Has anyone located statistics on salary differences between PA's who did a residency vs. those who haven't? I would like to write a my next blog post on this topic but I am having trouble finding information. Any help is welcomed.. even if you just list the advantages/disadvantages you experienced/observed with a residency. Thanks!!!!
  2. I wanted to start a post for this campus. I submitted my application in late May and got a call yesterday from someone confirming some prerequisites. It made me feel like we may be getting news soon! I'm really interested in this program!! Any interview invites yet?
  3. Hello All, I took AP statistics in high school and later received credit for it at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. Most schools are accepting this as the stats prereq, but from what I can tell- Duke does not? Any insight on this? Thanks!
  4. Hi Everyone! I had a few questions about required courses, what counts and what doesn't count. I got my bachelors degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders and have several courses that speak to that major. I took statistics and psychology, but its Statistics in Speech and Language Pathology and Educational Psychology. I was wondering if those will count when I apply to PA school in the future, or if I need to retake the courses. I want to be a competitive candidate but don't want to retake courses if it is not necessary. Thank you all! Emma
  5. Emory is my first choice school and I'm willing to wait an extra year to get more experience if needed. Age at application: 25 Bachelor's in Environmental studies and Religious Studies from Guilford College: 3.83 GPA undergraduate science pre-reqs completed post-graduation: 3.5 GPA Direct patient care exp: volunteer and paid EMT-intermediate- 2500 hrs; about 200 hours shadowing a PA, and 2000 hours as a home aid with the elderly (personal care, memory loss care, ...should I even include this?) GRE: not yet taken, I don't tend to be great at standardized tests though (not terrible either) Other: mostly fluent in Spanish, vice president of Guilford Peace Society during undergrad & active w/other non-medical clubs at school. What are my chances? What could I spend a year doing to make my application "pop"? Thanks!
  6. Hello...i have a bachelors professional degree as a pa...but now i'm wondering which direction should i pursue a masters in...is there any future for a well paid reasonable job in informatics or should i get a masters in teaching as this allow me to be part of faculty but whose jobs are few and far between...any advise guys....where does the future in informatics lie for pa as a profession...what do u think?
  7. OHSU is my top choice, but I'm concerned that I won't stack up for an interview if the all the accepted students fit in the "average GPA" posted online. Could some of the people invited for an interview/accepted give me an idea if there is a range here, and let me know if they think I have a shot. I'm applying the 2012-2013 cycle, currently working on a BS with a 3.3 GPA, 3.1 science, with 85 science credits so far. I took the new GRE and it translates to an 1170-1190 from the old one, 4.5 writing portion. I was in the army as a medic for four years with a 15 month deployment where I earned a combat medical badge and a bronze star medal for action. I will be finishing my Bachelors degree in a total of 2 and 3/4 years, which is surely why my GPA suffered, but wanted to get done under the GI Bill. I probably should have slowed down and taken the loans. I have years of volunteering in high school with a Search and Rescue team as well as various other activities including being a founder/president of a club, currently volunteer at a free medical clinic (9 months so far) but only get about 6 hours a month since it's a college town and everyone wants hours. I did a weeklong medical mission in Honduras through Global Medical Brigades. I am pretty sure I will have a good essay as I am typically a much better writer than science student, and am having an excellent writer edit for me. My EMT-B from the army days is expired, so I won't be able to include that certificate on my CASPA application, as far as I know. Thanks in advance to anyone who wants to give me some input.
  8. Hey everyone, I'm considering Barry and didn't find any stats on the accepted students. I may have just not found it, but could some of the recently accepted or current students give me some idea about the typical accepted applicant?
