I'm also still deciding. I thought I was only going to be accepted to one pa program in my top list, but I got into two. For those also considering BU or students from BU PA, what attracted you to the program? What do you think BU has that other programs don't?

I'm in the same situation. I got into Drexel which was also at the top of my list. While i'm still deciding, I do feel drawn to BU. BU is a very unique program attached to a very well-respected medical school. Essentially we will be receiving that same education as the BU medical students which is an unparalleled feature of the program.Not to mention our rotations are being set up at some of the best hospitals in the WORLD. I also like that there are 4 elective rotations, which is a lot more than most programs. I like their grading system and remediation system as well. The fact that the program starts early in April is both a plus and minus for me. I have to break lease on my current apartment to attend, however I will be getting out a whole year earlier than a lot of programs. Overall though I just had a great experience at BU. I really liked that the candidates chosen for interview were very diverse, especially in age, where a lot of programs I just saw a ton of very young ladies. It was one of the only programs I interviewed at that I truly felt invested in the person instead of the candidate on paper (Drexel did too!)

 

 

Its really tough. Drexel is just an hour away from me now. Great, well established program with an impeccable reputation. Tough decisions ahead.

      Hi everyone,
      I am looking for the opportunity to shadow a PA in Boston. There is only one very competitive shadowing program here so I was wondering if there are any PAs that would personally want a shadow-ee :)
       
      Thank you!

      Hi all,
      I am moving to Boston this summer, and I am on the job hunt. My significant other matched into residency, and we're so excited! However, I don't have a job lined up yet, and I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions for places to look/contacts? There are so many opportunities, but I have not heard back from a single employer. I am more interested in Medicine subspecialties (I have 1.5 years experience as a Hospitalist PA). I am also open to Dermatology, Urgent Care, and some surgical specialties (plastics, maybe). We will be living in South End, but I am willing to commute.
      Hoping for any (and all) advice! 
      Thank you!

      Hello!
      I was wondering if anyone accepted into Boston University's program could share or message their application stats (gpa, HCE...), I want to know whether, if I were to apply in a later cycle I could be considered a competitive applicant. Thank you for reading this and thank you for your time, I appreciate it a lot!

      P.S. I'll put my stats here if ya want to comment on my chances of acceptance: cGPA 3.7, sGPA 3.5, Dean's List 7/8 semesters (currently in my last semester), about 100 hours volunteering for my school's EMS. I don't have a lot of Patient care hours but I am hoping to take a gap year and work on that. I also hope to retake the GRE to improve my score as well. Again, thanks so much!

      Hi everyone,
      I am a pre-PA school who recently had an interview at MCPHS Boston PA Program.  When I visited there for my interview, they said the result will come out in 2 to 3 weeks, but they did not specify how they would let us know.  Does anybody know if they email us or call us whether we got rejected or accepted?  Also, should I contact the school if I do not hear back after 3 weeks?
      Thanks!
