Good luck to everyone who applied. Just turned in all my things yesterday.

 

Random question: do they do rolling admissions? I couldn't find anything that stated whether they do or not specifically.

I'm waiting till after my GRE to submit the Northeastern app, considering they require another PS essentially, I don't have time to put one together until after the 22nd. But, plan on applying. Best thing to do is to call or read the previous application thread so see when applicants started hearing for interviews.

Looking back at the thread from last application cycle it does not look like it. Someone had posted that they look at all applications after the September deadline, not positive though.

Did anybody receive a confirmation from them that they received your application? I overnighted mine a few days ago & I haven't heard anything...kinda paranoid that it never made it! yikes.

I did.  I mailed it from Arizona (which usually takes about 4 days to make it to the East Coast) and it took close to two weeks before I got a confirmation email.  It came from donotreply@webadmit.org so search your spam folder for that email, perhaps it was filtered out.  I hope you have since received a confirmation! I applied at the end of July and got the email 8/11.  Hope that helps!

I overnighted it 3 days before the September 1st deadline (nothing like pushing it to the last minute) and received confirmation this afternoon!

Does anyone that is going to be at the October 24/25 interview want to get dinner or something Thursday night? It would be nice to have a familiar face on Friday morning!

      Hello,
      Pre-PA here.  I was wondering if anyone has insight into the current and likely future job market in the DFW area, or into saturated markets for PA's in general.  I would intend to live in the DFW area after graduation.  I gather that due to the presence of two PA schools and 3 NP schools in the area that we are pretty saturated.  I'm trying to understand what this means in terms of current and future benefits and salary.
      I am a non-traditional applicant working a job with a good salary currently.  I'm trying to justify foregoing 30 months of salary at my current job for school.  According to data I saw, the average salary in the area is around $103,000.  Is this likely to decline?  Is it possible to make substantially more than this in the area with experience and ability? Are benefits like 401k match and PTO declining? 
      Thank you for your help!

      Hello,
      I am looking for realistic advice on becoming a surgical PA First Assist. I viewed similar topics within this forum but wanted a more personalized response. This will probably be a long post 😅.
      Here is a little about my background; I’m a 27yr old currently holding only my GED with a certification as a NA. I’ve worked as a CNA for 3years with 2.5 years working on a post surgical unit at my current hospital. I am transferring to sterile processing next month where I plan to work as I attend a CST program. 
      I thought this would be a good field to work in since I will be working directly with the surgical instruments and preparing the kits and trays for each surgery throughout the day. I also plan to obtain my CRST ( certified registered sterile technician) by taking the exam after some more experience on my new job. I originally wanted to go to school to be an OR Nurse or go for my CRNA but after being allowed to observe a few surgeries at work realized I’d rather be more hands on during procedures. My end goal then became wanting to be a first assist.  After speaking with a coworker currently waiting for admission to PA school about it, they suggested becoming a surgical PA. I’m already starting out so late in life... Is it a waste of time to go through the certification of becoming a Surgical Tech? Is it feasible to start a journey to PA so late? I want to be sure that surgery is for me and more than just an interest so figured being a Surgical Tech would help with my decision...I’ve already taken so many detours on the road to furthering my education. I don’t want to delay any further.
       
      I have also looked into the RNFA route but prefer the flexibility when it comes to specialties being a PA. 
       
      All feedback is welcome. Sorry for the long post, and Thanks in advance!

I hope to matriculate into a surgical career, but am keeping my options open at this point. Please give me your 100% candid feedback. I'm an Idaho resident, from a medically underserved area btw.

      Hi everyone!
      Does anyone here know what the preferred housing options are for the students in the PA program? Is it more convenient/affordable for the students to live in the dorms on campus or do most of the students commute from elsewhere in Manhattan/another boro for the entirety of the program? Thanks in advance!
