Hi everyone,

I have some questions that i would like to ask because I want to make an informed decision of what school to transfer to as undergrad. The thing is that Have been admitted to both Mercy college health science to Physician assistant program, and to Seton hall biology to MSPA. Due to my academic excellence, I was also admitted to mercy honor school.

But, I live in NJ: 7 miles to Seton Hall, approx 16 miles to Mercy but if i choose Mercy it is not gonna matter cause I'm gonna take the train which is about 40 min travel time.

If I go to Seton hall it means to having to take more loans compare to Mercy. To make it clear, I don't not care about school rank.

If I choose Seton Hall, I will know after a semester in the school if they gonna take me in the PA program based upon my academic excellence during that semester, which is not a problem for me.

If I choose Mercy, it seems that I have to keep a 3.2 GPA and having 500 hours of health care experience. Probably, I won't know If I'm going to get admitted into the PA until I graduate, and being reviewed by a comity...correct me if I'm wrong here.


My question: has anyone of you went from undergrad from Mercy to the PA in Mercy or know someone who been there that can shed some light on how it is done for students who did their undergrad from Mercy in Health science to PA?


Thank you for reading all of this and for your answers.:;-):

If you have been accepted to other schools you should go there! Ha,... I'm kidding (sort of....) Still waiting to hear back from Mercy. I'm assuming they are waiting to see who is going to pay the deposit or not. Crossing my fingers that no one does? Haha.



Seriously, congrats guys! I'm jealous!

      I am seeking help from my fellow PA students/previous PA students on what do to about not doing well in Anatomy. I just failed my second exam (and also failed the first one) after thinking it was going to go better the second time around. I definitely have changed my study habits since the beginning and I have felt that they have been working better, but clearly not. I have been meeting with my professor and advisor and I am still just having trouble pinpointing what I am doing that just isn’t working. I have done a lot of my own research and tried implementing other study techniques but nothing seems to be working. If you guys could please just tell me what you did to be successful, I would appreciate it so much.

      I am currently a PA student but I love to travel (current COVID19 situation aside). Are there any countries where American trained PAs can practice that are not US government owned? Is it difficult in general to get a PA job outside the US if you work for the US government? Of course, I want to work in the US for at least a few years to pay off student loans but I am interested in this as a future prospect. If anyone has done anything like this I'd really like to hear about your experience!

      Hello everyone, I am currently in my second semester of my didactic year. I struggled so much my first semester and ended up having to remediate one class. I feel like I retained nothing from my first semester and can barely recall things. I get so anxious everyday over my future . I have no idea how to face my family if I do fail. Also it would really crush me because this is what I've been working towards for the past 3 years since I graduated high school.  Compared to my other classmates I feel like I know the least. Living in fear everyday is really getting to me emotionally and I don't know what to do.
