Hey guys! My name is Elizabeth Luttner and I realized there isn't any forum for students who were accepted at AB this term, and are planning on attending in May. I was going to make an FB group but I have to be friends with at least one person first! 

 

So I thought this would be a good start! My main question right now is where everyone is planning on living. Philippi is pretty small and I can't really find apartment options online right now. Does anyone have any suggestions? Also, does anyone know someone who's attending/attended the program? 

 

Thanks and I'm excited to meet everyone! 

 

Liz

Hey Liz, I currently have a friend who I went to undergrad school currently attending there. He rents a house with a classmate in downtown. When I went to interview there I visited the house and it's nice and cozy.

This is totally my biggest question. I reached out to some current students to see what they do. Most rent places in town but I was warned some places can be sketchy. If I hear back from others I will totally let you know.

Thanks! Are you planning on attending AB? If so, I made an FB group for those of us planning on attending in May! Here's the link https://www.facebook.com/groups/718964061603557/

Hi Liz,

 

My name is Michelle and I am also planning on attending AB in May, and housing is definitely my biggest question too. I did see some on campus housing options could be decent but I was wondering about off campus stuff as well. I'm kind of hoping that they give us some more housing info soon. Also, I requested to be added to the Facebook group. Thanks for making it!

Hi, I was also accepted and will be attending in May. Contact the PA department for a list of possible rentals. Housing is definitely limited in Philippi especially because a lot of locals rent to only PA students but they will be moving out in August.

Thanks for creating the fb group, Liz!

 

Michelle, I'm definitely interested in potentially rooming together. I'll email you with my contact info so that we can discuss it further, if you haven't already found a roommate. :)

 

Congrats, everyone; excited to meet your all in May!

      Interviewed July 12th, offered a seat on the 19th!
      Who else has been offered a seat?
      I wanted to initiate a thread we could use to share thoughts about the transition from here until Day 1 of class. I'd like to schedule a Meet and Greet prior, if people are interested.
      Questions on the background check, immunization requirements or FAFSA? What neighborhoods are you looking at? Looking for roommates? Need information on Chicago? When are you looking at moving out if you're coming from elsewhere? Where are you coming from? What would make you feel more comfortable getting ready for matriculation?

      Who's been accepted to PA programs where the majority of pre req courses were taken online?

      Hey! If anyone has any questions regarding PA school or their application please don't hesitate to let me know!
      I applied to 9 schools, got accepted to 1, waitlisted at 4 schools and denied to 4 schools.
      When I was applying there were not many resources to find other students who were accepted with low GPAs to see what they have done, so I just want to help out as much as possible. This is a very stressful part of an individual's life and having someone to relate to can definitely help out.
      If anyone feels uncomfortable commenting their questions on here or need a super fast response, feel free to message me on my instagram as well: Naisphan
      Right now, I'm a volunteer pre-pa mentor for two community colleges in my neighborhood.
       
      I don't want to make this a super long post but a quick overview of my statistics:
      cGPA: 3.1
      sGPA: 3.01
      Last 60 credit hours: 3.8
      PCE: 2600
      HCE: 1500
      Shadowing Hours: 144
      GRE: Did not take
       
      There is so so so much more than just the numbers. I really mean that. I have spoken with a whole bunch of PA admissions committee members directly at multiple schools about my application and also what they're looking for in potential applicants. I've also spoken to many students and pre-pa mentors as well to help me throughout the process.
      With my low GPA, I was worried that I wouldn't be able to make it into school but with the help of my mentors I was able to craft a great application.
      Don't be discouraged at all, there are so many things to do to make your application much better!!! It really is a holistic application and as long as you reach the minimums, anything is possible from there. Again, AMA either here or on my instagram page!!!

      Last cycle I applied to 3 schools, interviewed at all of them, and ended up getting rejected at all three. Then one of the schools ended up adding me to their waitlist, but I still didn't plan on getting in. Fast forward to yesterday, they call me and offer me a seat for their program that begins in 3 weeks in a completely new city. However, I am so confused on what to do. I graduate on April 27th and I was so extremely ready and excited to take a year off and work. Especially after this semester, I have been so burned out and in need of a break. I am also in need of money as I have been barely working... I know people might say I'd be an idiot to not accept, but I do not think I would be happy taking it. I feel that a break would be so beneficial to me at this point in my life and starting PA school in three weeks honestly sounds awful. It was my least preferred choice as well.
      I talked to an advisor at my top school and she said if I just practice my interview more, she thinks I can get in next year for sure. I currently have a 3.98 overall GPA and a 4.0 Science GPA and around 3500 hours. I obviously can't guarantee that I will get in somewhere next year, but I'm hoping that if I practice my interviews (which I didn't prepare for last cycle), I can get a spot somewhere and I will be much more ready to start such a rigorous program. I just need advice on whether it would be completely ridiculous to not accept this seat, or that if taking an honestly needed year off would be a smart idea. Thanks!

      Hi everyone,
      I really really want to be a physician assistant, but I don't have the most outstanding test scores or grades. I was wondering if you all could give me your opinion on if I have any chance at all of getting into a PA program. My overall GPA was a 3.30 and my science GPA was a 3.27. I took the GRE and got a 155 on verbal, but only a 145 on the quantitative section, and a 4.0 on the writing section. I will have 1,720 hours of healthcare experience working as a CNA by the time I am planning to apply to physician assistant programs. I also have 24 hours of shadowing PAs as experience. Please let me know if you think I have any chance of being accepted into a PA program. Also, if any of you have any recommendations on PA programs that would be best for me to apply to based on my stats I would greatly appreciate that!
      Thanks in advance for any and all responses!
