Awesome, I'll be seeing both of you next summer! I just got my acceptance call this morning and may or may not have called Cathleen an angel and started hyperventilating! I'm one of the Sarahs from West Palm Beach/NJ. Kevin, we did the group discussion section together. Now the actual hard work starts, it'll take a bit to wrap my mind around that thought!

Yeah, I was on the elliptical and nearly broke my neck trying to get to the phone!!! Still sinking in for me too, even though I have been planning for it beforehand.... I wonder how we will meet others who make it into our class before school actually starts. I doubt all the applicants are on these forums. Be nice to sorta get to know people before we get going full throttle.

Kevin - At the dinner with the PA students on Monday evening, Ashleigh passed out slips with her e-mail address. I e-mailed her today and she sent me a link for the UF PA c/o 2014 Facebook group, so I guess that's one way we can all get in touch with one another. Here's the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/UFPA2014/

 

I work nights in an emergency department so I was actually asleep when I received the call and didn't get to the phone in time. I called back and still wasn't entirely sure if I was awake or dreaming!

I haven't even been called for an interview. Maybe I didn't make the cut. I thought the application deadline was October.

 

Congrats, guys!

Sarah- Thanks. Ill give that a try later. Couldnt make the dinner. It was gonna run pretty late and we had to go get the boys in bed.

Ernie - definitely don't give up hope yet, we were in the first round of interviews, there are still quite a few left. I believe they continue interviews all the way through Autumn. There's still plenty of time. One of the students in the current first year didn't submit her application until August and interviewed in October, so no worries!

 

Woodsters - I remember talking with you at the dinner, I really appreciated what you had to say. It was really great to hear that FL is such a PA friendly state, and I thought your story of how you applied was really cool! I also think it's awesome that you had employment set up so quickly, it just speaks to how high caliber a program UF is.

Hey I am a current student and Strongly suggest you attend the SWAMP Dinner on Monday night and talk to current students they will be able to give you plenty of advice. Just be yourself and enjoy the orientation, its very informative. If you are unable to attend the dinner no worries, I will give you my contact info on orientation day if you have any questions or concerns.

Hey Kate! How many interviews did you have?

All of us that interviewed this morning only had 3. I really don't think that it is a sign either way.

And update: I've now heard of 3 of us that have been accepted this round.

      Hey everyone, there are still tickets available for those who are interested in the Loma Linda PA program. We have changed our event from zoom to being ON CAMPUS. There will be prizes raffled off. Due to some restrictions still being in place, the tickets that are being sold will only allow one person per ticket. More info on the flyer and event bright website. Thank you so much! Hope to see you there. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/llus-3rd-annual-pre-pa-conference-tickets-145958073527

      Hey y'all so I am a sophomore in undergrad and in the process of just starting to get PCE, shadow, and volunteer hours and etc, but I am super stressed out because I am itching to start getting PCE hours except its so difficult while in school. I was thinking about becoming an EMT and working for 2 years after I graduate but I wasn't sure if being an EMT is considered PCE among most colleges, does anyone know? (I also tried to work as a caregiver over summer and that job isn't for me) 
       
      Also, I'm trying to compile a list of PA schools to apply to, so if anyone has any recommendations for schools on the east coast please let me know! 🙂

      Hi all, 
      I'm a new grad starting out in ambulatory surgery-- I'm super excited because I love being hands on in the operating room. I was just wondering if any of the Surgical PAs could give some insights about ambulatory surgery? The site I'm going to be working at has 12 surgical subspecialities (list below). From what I gathered through the interview process, I'll be able to get experience in all of them. That being said I'm worried about being prepared and knowledgeable for cases. Anyone have any tips of how to study up, or even get more comfortable once starting? I have a little over a month before start date so any resources are welcome. Thanks in advance!
      List of subspecialities/ topics to brush up on🤯🥴: 
       
      Bariatric surgery
      Breast surgery
      Colorectal surgery
      General surgery
      Head and neck surgery
      Minimally invasive gynecologic surgery
      Neurosurgery
      Ophthalmologic surgery
      Orthopedic surgery
      Pediatric surgery
      Podiatric surgery
      Sports medicine surgery
      Urologic surgery
      Vascular surgery

      Hi everyone!
      I am currently a PA-S1 in my second semester, starting clinical rotations in the fall. My program offers 8 core rotations: EM, Family med, Internal med, surgery, Peds, OB/GYN, Geriatric meds, and behavioral health with only one elective. Popular electives include: any surgery subspecialty (cardiothoracic surgery, neurosurgery, etc.), cardiology, psychiatry, orthopedics... and more.
      I was wondering if anyone had advice on picking an elective since there are many of these sub specialties I would love to gain experience in! if you faced a similar scenario, what helped you with making this decision, or does any one have insight on what may be best for post-grad life? 
      Thanks!
