are you concerned with how new the program is?

 

I'm not concerned about that. New programs almost always end up receiving their accreditation because there is such a demand for PAs. Plus, I think it would be cool to be part of the inaugural class at a new program. Fewer classmates, too!

Plus they're technically not a new program. They had a program in the past so they know what to expect and how to go about establishing their program.

I think this will be an excellent program. They have had a program before and are WELL aware of what it takes to achieve and maintain accreditation. I also suspect they will have terrific rotations because of their affiliations. In the past they had an affiliation with King/Drew Medical Center which was one of the county-run level 1 trauma centers in the inner city. I had a cousin who graduated from their program and worked at King/Drew Medical Center and had great exposure to various types of trauma and illnesses.

For those of you who have received interview invites, do you mind sharing your stats? Gpa, HCE, etc.

@KelseySD  I look forward to meeting you as well!  Guessing by your username, are you from San Diego?!  If so, so am I! :) Will you be staying at a hotel the night before the interview?

@KelseySD I think so! Still trying to figure out what area would be close enough to not deal will too much traffic in the morning, yet safe enough to stay at by myself haha

@Laur_ek @kelseySD have you ladies decided on a hotel? I live about 1.5 hours away so I am debating staying somewhere but the only ones that seem safer are by LAX and there still will be traffic getting to Drew! Ideas anyone else who has booked a room?

I haven't decided on one yet! I've heard that safety wise we should be good if we stay West of the 405 and South of Rosecrans Ave., so I was looking at the Springhill suites Hawthorne/LAX and a few others around it. Would love to hear if anyone else has booked one yet! :)
