Hey guys, I'm a recent student here and just wanted to say good luck to everyone who has interviews scheduled! Feel free to ask me any questions you have or PM me. Here are a few tips about interviews

I couldn’t say the exact number of spots left, but I was waitlisted a week or so after the interview and got an acceptance call last week. Maybe they accept some number of student per interview sessio

Do all of the applicants who went to the interview and didn't get accepted initially get placed on the wait list?  Or do some students not even make it to the waiting list?  I interviewed on 7/26 and

I couldn’t say the exact number of spots left, but I was waitlisted a week or so after the interview and got an acceptance call last week. Maybe they accept some number of student per interview session and a spot opened for me? I imagine they wouldn’t fill all spots before interviews are done.

Hey guys! I was wondering if anyone (maybe first year students?) had some insight on total cost for the program. I know on their site they indicate tuition and fees come to around 88K, but it doesn't look like that includes cost of living. Just wondering if anyone has a good idea how much to expect to take it for both years/total program cost + living expenses. Thank you! ?

I am a current PA student at South and I wanted to pass on the info that I have apartment furniture for sale. Another student is moving in with me starting January, so I need to sell most of my stuff to make room for hers. I have a queen bed with frame, a big Tv (54in) with wall mount, a TV stand, a cute white coach with ottoman, and possibly a desk! Pass on the info if you can! Good luck getting ready to begin this wild journey! i

      Hi everyone!
      I am currently in my third semester of didactic year and will be starting clinical rotations in the fall. My family is moving to Tampa and I was hoping to get a rotation set up in the area. I am looking for a preceptor in family or internal medicine, pediatrics, behavioral, women's health, or emergency medicine.
      If you know any contacts or other forums I could reach out to please let me know, thank you!

      Hello PA forum.
      After doing some soul searching, I decided on maybe going for PA school. I am only a 2nd semester freshman. However, due to many circumstances, such as adjusting to online school, and a 1 star professor, my first semester of college was a 2.5. I also was not planning on anything after undergrad so I wasn't totally motivated on acing everything. I am doing my best this semester to make up for that, and getting a 3.75 or 4 this semester is realistic at the moment since Ive bee working extra hard. I am very worried however that all of the hard work that will come in the next years will be for naught if my 2.5 first semester will weigh me down. I know I am capable of getting mostly As and Bs from here on out, but will my first semester be the bane of my PA school application? Will schools take into account covid college and and very bad professors who hardly knew how to operate education software? Will schools see the upward trend as a good thing? I also understand that my application will be looked at as a package rather than just GPA, so I have some hope, but this worry still lingers.

      Hi everyone! I’m Tati.
      I just graduated in December with my BS in Kinesiology. I had a low GPA, exactly 3.0.  I don’t know what my science gpa is but I can only assume that is low as well. I plan to retake O-Chem 1 ( I got an S grading for it Bc my school did the S/U grading in Spring 2019) & I plan to take Biochem this summer. 
      I just started getting patient hours as an Emt in December. Once the PA application opens, I think I’ll have about 500 hrs. By august, assuming I only pick up my shift hours & not OT; I’ll have ~1000 hrs.  I don’t have any shadowing experience & it’s pretty hard to get some now because of the pandemic. 
       
      im debating if I should apply this cycle with only the minimum hrs & a low gpa or should I wait, retake some classes & apply next yr? I’m very conflicted and don’t know what I should do. I know I want to go to Pa school but cannot decide on the timeline. 
       
      any advice is appreciated!
