Hello! I'm not sure how the waitlist is composed and I think the class is pretty full but idk the exact amount. I believe there is one more interview date.

But I'm not sure how many students paid and actually accepted their seats. Our President said it was halfway full before Christmas.

Hi Ahayes12, do you know if they ever pull people from the waiting list?

Last year was the first year and yes they did. I believe Philadelphia does as well. They just wait to see how many confirmed seats they have. Some people also accept their seat and end up giving it up, it happened to our class last year in march!

Has anyone heard anything recently? I feel like it's pretty late in the cycle, and I'm wondering why I haven't just received a rejection already. I submitted my application July 7th, and I have not heard a peep.

They sent me a link within a month to pay a processing fee and link to check the application updates.

      Hi everyone, I wanted to start this thread early so we can share our experience! Goodluck!

      I'm attending Arizona State University online. I live in Georgia and I'm 24 years old. ASU is a quarter-based system, which means I get college credits on a quarterly basis instead of a semester basis. All PA and AA schools (I'm interested in both) require a certain amount of prerequisite hours, but at ASU, I would be about an hour or two short in a lot of them, like biology, chemistry, organic chemistry, etc. So, me getting a degree in biology from ASU is kind of pointless, because I'd have to take some additional prerequisite classes at my local college anyways. I should also mention I have a job (in aviation) that pays pretty well - about $60,000 a year. I am also in the process of getting my Surgical Technician certifications, but this will take a year or so. With this being said, I have two options:
       
      A: Get my Surgical Tech school done and take a really low course load at ASU for Biology to ensure I maintain as close to a 4.0 as possible. Get about 60 of 120 credits from ASU (amount needed to transfer), then transfer to the University of Georgia. Finish my degree in biology, but live off loans. Try to find a part-time CST job while in Athens to keep them as low as possible. Continue with a low class load to keep a good GPA. This way, I'm keeping my grades high, but still getting some crucial clinical experience. Eventually graduate from UGA, a highly respected school in Georgia, with a degree in Biology. Then apply to programs. Most will be far away, so if I get accepted into one of those, I'll also probably have to live off loans for the two years of AA or PA school. Lots of debt, but better undergrad, experience (in life and classwork), and higher caliber school.
       
      B: Buy a mobile home for a great price ($13k practically brand new) - a home right next to my parent's. In 3 years, it'll be paid off and cost me half as much as renting. Continue my degree at Arizona State University (online) in something like psychology, since my prerequisites won't count the same anyways. Minor in personal health. Get my Surgical Tech school done and work part-time while attending ASU. Finish my psychology degree, then take the right prerequisites at my local college. Don't live off any student loans until I get accepted into AA or PA school.
       
      Option A seems nice. I can go to UGA, graduate with a degree in Biology, have that prestigious college (at least for my state) attached to my degree, finish everything on a physical campus, have easier access to volunteering in research studies at the campus, have 100% of my focus on my school and GPA (this is important as grades don't come naturally to me), and pretty much devote my life to making sure my prerequisites and overall GPA are top notch. The bad - I'd live off loans and accumulate a lot more debt and UGA is harder (could be a good thing for preparation) in their expectations. A lot of good, but the two bad are related to more debt and harder to get a good GPA.
       
      Option B seems good too, but not as appealing. I'll undergrad in psychology and minor in personal health (biology/chem/etc not available). Take all the right prerequisites at a local college that should be easier to pass versus UGA's standards. Save money by working as a Surgical Tech and paying $500/mo in a mortgage payment versus $1,000/mo for an apartment.
       
      SORRY TO RAMBLE. What's your opinion?

      I am a student at the University of Georgia. I would like to shadow a PA to make sure this is the career I would like to pursue. If you would be willing to let me shadow or know someone who would, my email is eej83717@uga.edu
      Thank you!

      New Grad here looking for something in Metro Atlanta.

      Hi Everyone,
      I am looking for shadowing opportunities in the Gwinnett Co. area of GA.  Specifically,  in Duluth, Lawrenceville, Lilburn, Snellville, Norcross, or even Suwanee.  I work in a clinic full time right now, usually from 7am-3:30pm.  I can volunteer with anything you need as well.  Most of my experience is in physical therapy (outpatient) as a front office manager/pt tech. 
      Thank you!
      Janessa
