Hello! I have been taking an online 16wk self-paced biology course (w/lab). I started the course in October and plan to finish in January. I have been accepted to 2 PA programs (one which does not require this additional biology class and the other which does) and am waiting to hear back from 2 other programs that I interviewed at. Long story short, the class has not been going super well and while I have learned the information, the grades are not reflecting my knowledge and understanding and I don't want to send along a crappy grade if I don't need to...
So, my question is: I know I will have to submit this grade to the school that requires the course (should I choose to attend this program) but since the other schools do not require this course, can I choose to not send this grade/transcript along to them? Or do schools require every single transcript to be sent to them?
I sincerely appreciate the help and feedback!
Good evening all,
I am just starting out my career as a physician assistant. I have been in the military for 10 years as an active duty corpsman and I’m planning on doing 10 more as an officer and physician assistant and retiring. Whilst in, a goal is to attend an emergency medicine fellowship and get my doctorate.
I have had the CIA and State department (US embassies) on my mind for a while now as career paths once I finish my time in the military. I am wondering if anybody has any input, personal experience, or recommendations for me. I have a pretty good understanding of how each system works. I am looking for more specific information, comparison of the two agencies, paths to build myself while still active duty, things to make myself more appealing, a way to get a foot in the door while I’m still in, a personal contact with experience. These kinds of things.
Thanks for taking the time to read this post and I appreciate any responses,
Please help me make a complete list of Pros and Cons of being a PA vs Physician.
