What you enjoyed the most about the program, and the least?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I just wanted to hear from current/past USC graduates to comment on USC's PA program. Specifically, what made you chose USC over other schools? What's the advantage/benefit of attending this school? And, what were some things you weren't too pleased about? Thank you! :=D:

Hello there,


I'll try to answer your question as succinctly as possible...if you look throughout other threads with almost the exact same question, you'll find that there is a common theme: despite the advantages/disadvantages of attending a particular PA program, it is essential that you choose the program that's right for you. If you have the time, I would recommend attending an information session. Go to the program's website for dates and times, then reach out to them and let them know you'd like to attend. They usually answer all the questions you have, and 99% of the time a current student will be there to provide you the student perspective.

      Hi everyone,
      I know this is a sensitive topic but I need sincere input to see whether anyone has actually declined USC admission for other local schools such as Western University or Loma Linda. I have read many posts about choosing the cheapest schools but living in such a competitive job market like Orange County, I feel like USC name can help us finding a better job, is it true? I know USC has the best PA program in Southern CA but its tuition is almost double that of other schools and is 6-9 months longer. Since I am married with one kid and paying mortgage, my future disposable income maybe too limited to cover the additional tuition of USC compared to other schools, although my husband is emotionally supportive of either choice.
      Your experience and advice are highly appreciated. Thanks!

      what pa program are you in and what's your profile like? I am still an undergrad student and I would want to be (extra) well-prepared for PA school. I have looked at multiple uni's programs, but since I'm in california, I'd like to stay local. I was looking at usc's. anybody in usc's program? gpa? GRE score? HRE? curious. thank you.

      Hi there! 
      For those who are applying to USC, did you self report your test scores on CASPA? I called their office and the lady told me I just needed to send my official GRE results to CASPA. I was asking her if I needed to self report but I have a feeling she didn't understand my question completely. 
      Will all the schools that I am applying to, including those that do not require the GRE, see my self reported scores? It is a bit on the low end, so I rather not have them see it. Thanks!

      I am an undergraduate senior at UCLA and plan on applying to PA school in the near future. I would love to shadow a PA in  Westwood, Beverly Hills, San Fernando Valley or surrounding areas! Please let me know if you know of any opportunities! 
       Thank you!
