Budget Apps During PA School


Recommended Posts

So last semester I used a simple excel spreadsheet as a budget mechanism, but it didn't help me keep track of my budget on the go, and it's not exactly the most time-savvy way to budget. I was wondering if anyone had any budget app suggestions to help me categorize my semester budget (ie food, rent, gym, etc.). I'm all about keeping those loans as low as possible. Thanks in advanced!

Mint is okay but I also use the excel spreadsheet. I budget weekly which is extreme but has been effective for keeping on track each week and understanding influx of money and when things are due. I would really like something to input numbers and titles and have it add or subtract accordingly. Mint shows me where my money is going but it doesn't have the spreadsheet tools that I like. Anyone have other apps they use? I considered buying one too..

I have tried mint in the past, and I didn't find it to be the greatest. I can't recall specifics as to why I didn't like it, so I might as well give it another try. I do like the flexible excel spreadsheets offer, but it's still a lot of work on the users part.

      Hello! I am selling the PA Student Guide to the Clinical Year, 7th edition, complete set! These were helpful for pre-clinical studying on a new rotation, when you feel out of practice and need quick refreshers, and for content-specific notes. Selling for $60 + shipping, OBO. If wanted, pickup in Indianapolis. Items are cross-posted and priced to sell! Original set was $160 and this set is in very good condition, only used for <1 year.

      I live in Carrollton but attend PA school in Nashville and am set to graduate in December. I had a rotation set up by my teacher that she had secured through a prior affiliation agreement. However, there was some miscommunication and it seems that my previous rotation site is no longer available. I was wondering if you are aware of any preceptorships from 09/13/21 to 10/15/21? Being that this is my elective, I feel that the terms are pretty broad so I have a lot of flexibility where I can work and no real preference. I know that an affiliation agreement is needed but my teacher informed me that generally she can get that done very quickly. Thank you for any information in advance.

      Hey everyone, there are still tickets available for those who are interested in the Loma Linda PA program. We have changed our event from zoom to being ON CAMPUS. There will be prizes raffled off. Due to some restrictions still being in place, the tickets that are being sold will only allow one person per ticket. More info on the flyer and event bright website. Thank you so much! Hope to see you there. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/llus-3rd-annual-pre-pa-conference-tickets-145958073527

      So my particular PA school uses the PACKRAT to determine if students are ready to take the PANCE or not at the end of clinical year (this is new and never counted like this before). This year's most recent PACKRAT version national average is apparently a 167, 20 points higher than the last 3 averages on PAEA's website and 40 points higher than last years national average of 128 (according to my PA school). They have informed us that if we do not get within the 2 point standard deviation, they will not allow us to take the PANCE until we reach an adequate grade on the PACKRAT. Can they legally do this?
      According to PAEA, the PACRAT can be done open book so these scores are skewed and shouldn't count for my class.
      There is nothing in our program handbook about the PACKRAT being a requirement for graduation.
      PLEASE HELP!!
