Will I be completely overlooked if I answer yes to academic dishonesty question on CASPA?
My senior year of undergrad I took an management online course. There was an ungraded assignment that I didn't think I had to complete. To my dismay, the professor stated in his syllabus that the failure to complete this specific module to the best of our ability would result in being reported as academic dishonesty. Needless to say, he reported over 100 students. I had zero intentions of cheating. It was an act of laziness-- if anything. The assignment itself was ungraded and didn't even go towards my grade to begin with. I was just given a written warning for "the failure to comply with instructions." I tried to appeal but the professor was trying to make a point to the class. I still received an A in the course. However, I understand that I must answer yes to the academic dishonesty question.
I am discouraged and worried that this mistake will cost me my future as a PA. I am not sure how to explain what happened in only 500 characters and have them believe that it really was just that and not me trying to put a positive twist on my actions. The rest of my application is fairly strong. It will be two years since this occurred when I apply. Should I be worried? Will PAs even consider me? Any advice would be appreciated.
I was just accepted to West Virginia University’s PA program (class of 2022) and I am planning on attending. We have a short amount of time to figure out living arrangements, as classes begin in early January 2020. Has anyone else been accepted and would like to chat about finding roommates or would just like to get to know other students in the program?
It's my first post here. I was desperate enough to Google and somehow ended up here.
I am a US IMG, last year, good rank (and once was first of my year on IM rotation), Step 1 done...
I am looking for a US clinical experience (a hands on elective rotation). I like IM, with all passion, and almost all subspecialties (and especially ID). I don't mind any subspecialty really, they all excite me haha.
I literally tried everything... I always end up with either an observership (which is not really nicely considered for the match), or just getting ignored.
I emailed a lot of doctors and hospitals, it seems like there's no use.
I know companies like AMO and those exist, but many say they're shady, many say you don't really do anything, and most importantly they're expensive for very lowly ranked hospitals. I don't mind a place with no particular rank, but doesn't make sense to pay that much money for something that should be free.
I am ready to pay my own insurance.
I'm out of time as my elective is due in like 3 months (and I need paperwork and such...).
I'll pay with coffee, kindness, smart questions, daily compliments and especially hard work.
Even if it's just hope with no real confirmation, I can try sending an email of my info + CV + motivation letter... And we'll see what happens. My dream is to catch a residency in the US so I could help, with my passion, as much people as I can knowing I did my job in getting fit as a good physician.
I think I am at my final draft and would love for someone to review it/read it over. Have looked at is soo many times that its hard to see any mistakes or weak points at this time. Anyone willing to help would be greatly appreciated. Let me know and I will send it over.
Please and thank you!
