Sounds good. I'll introduce myself, I'm Nancy, I'm an Air Force vet. I was an RT in the Air Force, still am. I got out of the military and finished my Bachelors in Biology at St Mary's university in Texas, currently living In western New York, about 3 hours from school, working as an RT, and way too excited to start school in the fall.

 

What about you guys?

Nice to meet you Nancy!! My name is Klaudia Konopka. I'm 24, graduated from UMass Amherst in 2015 with a Dual Bachelors in Biology and Psychology on the neuroscience track. I'm currently working as a PCC in MRI and as a Psych tech in an Eating Disorder Clinic. I live in CT, about 4.5 hours from LeMoyne. I'm so excited too- for the program and to meet all of you!

 

Does anyone have recommendations on loans/scholarships/places to live? 

 

Also, who wants to start a FB group?

I'm also looking online at apartments. I'm going to live alone though, too many years sharing space in the military, I've learned it is hit or miss with roommates, and I don't want the potential stress if it is a bad match.

 

I've seen several reasonably priced apartments near the school, but I'm worried about whether they are safe! I don't want to live somewhere far from campus...but security is more important to me than convenience!!

Hi Larry! Nice to meet you and Klaudia online!

 

What are you guys doing to prep for school? I'm brushing up on medical terminology, also researching note taking type things.

 

All through undergrad I LOVED paper notebooks and my livescribe pen...but I'm not sure that will be efficient for pa school....I'm thinking iPad Pro and notability any of you guys have any experience with tech for note taking?

Rock your major sounds really interesting. I wish my school had that as a choice when I was in undergrad. In regards to prepping for PA school, I think all of us are in the same boat in terms of being nervous. From people I spoke to in the field, Thry just told me to relax, take a vacation, spend time with family and close friends since you're going to be disappearing for two years, and take care of any health related things before school starts. Le Moyne will be assigning a medical terminology class/assignment/review over the summer so you will be fine with your medical terminology before school starts. As far as notetaking, I don't use a laptop. I can type much faster than I can write

Hey everyone!

 

How did you all get your acceptance? Email or snail mail? Still waiting to hear back from LeMoyne... and the fact that all of you already know that you're in makes me think that I wasn't accepted. Hopefully my acceptance is on it's way!! But just would like to know from you guys what form it's coming in :)

I'm pretty sure everyone that has been accepted thus far has heard by phone call. I'm assuming today would be the last day to hear- just from looking at past years. Good luck syracuse509!!!

Hi guys.  I'm Carin and I'm assuming that I did not get in, as I have not received a call.  I'm popping into your thread, however, to offer to help advise anyone looking at apartments in the area.  I've worked EMS in Syracuse for 8 years and I am very familiar with the area and the various complexes.  Please feel free to ask me any specific questions about any place you're looking at, but I'll make a few suggestions.  Stay away from anything with a Syracuse address unless the listing says it is in the following neighborhoods:  Eastwood (can be a little trashy in spots but overall not bad), Sedgwick, Meadowbrook, or Strathmore.  Most of the suburbs are OK, though there are still a few specific complexes here and there that aren't very nice or safe even in the nicest of suburbs.  Downtown Syracuse is actually generally pretty safe overall as the buildings are usually access-controlled but you'd have to contend with traffic, bars (loud for when you're trying to study!), and lack of parking (or very expensive parking).

 

A very honest congratulations to all of you who did get in.  I had the pleasure of meeting a few of you on interview day.  I wish you the best of luck and please do let me know if you have any housing questions.

Carin, thanks for the advice. Good luck to you! EMS is definitely a hard gig; I'm sure you have tons of invaluable experience. Best of luck to you! ::fingers crossed they are still making calls::

Hi Everyone! My name is Olivia. I am 22 and currently working as a Home Health Aide in Buffalo.  Congratulations on everyone who got accepted and good luck to those who are still waiting. The current students at the interview said the acceptance package has a list of recommended neighborhoods which should help with the apartment hunt. Look forward to hearing more from everyone.

I was talking with a student during my interview and he said that he would not suggest using just a tablet or an iPad... But to get a laptop or something like that... I am thinking I will get like a surface pro 4...

I think he said they had a couple students in his class with iPads and it was just hard to keep up with the notes I guess... I guess complatability as well... But I don't know. That is why I am thinking surface pro cause it is a really good hybrid of a touch screen and a laptop

I have a MacBook Air and I love how portable it it but I'm debating between getting a new one or a MacBook Pro for school....any clue if we need to use cd roms in class very often? MacBook Air doesn't have a cd drive, and I get annoyed with taking my portable one everywhere....it defeats the purpose of having a lightweight laptop in my opinion....

      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!!!

      Hello!
      I was wondering if anyone accepted into this 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!
      -Maylily7
      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!

      Hello future classmates!! I'm starting this thread for our new class, and would like to start a Facebook group to start getting to know each other. 
      Feel free to message me here to add me on Facebook, or add any info about yourself on this thread. 
       
      Congrats, can't wait to meet everyone!

      Hi Everyone, 
       
      Now that the admissions process is picking up and some invitations have been sent out I thought it would be a good time to start the accepted page. Congrats to everyone who is offered a seat! Feel free to post anything about yourself here, ask your fellow future students any questions, or anything else. Looking forward to seeing everyone in August!
