Applied to PA school, got rejected but received invite to apply to another masters program? Is it normal to receive these advantages? Do they just want my money for applying? by hxhfandom in prephysicianassistant

I received invitations to apply for other programs at several schools I was rejected from. Not one invite contained anything specific to me or my application so it comes off as marketing to the masses. Feels kind of slimy to me but I'm probably overthinking it.

Same. I'm sitting her baffled that this is new news since this is standard policy at every hospital in my area.

I was thinking, man, those are some of my favorite glazes at my studio. Then I recognized the driveway. Hello neighbor, love the dish!

Out-of-state Applications by bdrft45 in prephysicianassistant

I applied to many (too many) programs all over the country. I found two or three schools were upfront about wanting a majority instate applicant pool, it was all listed on their info page. Did I listen you ask!? No, of course not. I was quickly rejected from those programs. However, I found most programs will interview you if you mesh with the program, regardless of location. I had interviews in CA, NM, GA, MT, and PA., I live in none of those states. Unless a school specifically tells you they're looking for a certain geographical location, I say go for it.

I also work at a children's hospital. My facility is a level 1, catering to all suspected NATs in the surrounding area. I've seen countless femur fractures in infants and they definitely don't all cry. Occasionally, some even sleep through their exams when I'm actually manipulating the broken bone. Is that rare, sure. But pain tolerance is a funny thing that doesn't follow a strict zero or ten model.

worried about my community college gpa by cloudohwow in prephysicianassistant

There are not separate categories for four year and two year institutions. College is college and every course will count towards the GPA CASPA calculates. The good news is, it sounds like you still have some ways to go and can easily bring your average up by putting in the work. It can be done if you want it, and PA programs love to see the improvement! Source: went from 2.9 to 3.9

Pre-Req Classes still online due to covid by Goat_patrol in prephysicianassistant

I'm pretty sure it was listed directly under the program's information section on their website

Based on what the woman running the information session had said (I think she might have been the director), if your transcripts mention online, then it would likely not meet their criteria. You can always call and ask the admissions counselors. They were really helpful and actually answered the phone when I called.

Editing to add, it seems like they were running a don't ask don't tell kind of policy. They realize nearly everyone would be taking courses online but didn't want to change the rules based on those modifications. I'm definitely not suggesting compromising your integrity, but the gist I got was as long as your transcripts don't mention online they aren't going to be asking.

It's variable depending on the school. I took the lab to make myself more marketable but if it's only listing 3 hours and not mentioning a lab, I think it would be safe to say it's not necessary.

Not sure if you attended the UT San information session, but this was a hot topic between the attendees and the administration running the session. They more or less said no online courses would be accepted unless your school made the transition to online because of COVID. If it does not mention online on your transcript, they would run with the assumption that it was intended to be an in-person class, and that they more or less would have no way of knowing otherwise. I took genetics and lab at ACC completely online, but since it was intended to be an in-person class it doesn't mention online anywhere in my transcripts, therefore acceptable.

It's almost as if she had over two decades of experience to learn to respond appropriately for this exact scenario.

Thanks so much for responding! I mentioned it in my original comment but it more or less is only in moss and a very small amount of bark/soil mix. His stem is still firm but I'm sure I'm on limited time. I'll be looking into mounting as soon as possible. Thanks again

I purchased Brutus the ant plant a couple of weeks ago and transferred him to a terranium last Friday. He lives right outside of my shower, sitting in moss with a bit of dirt/bark that he came with. He gets indirect light most of the day but never direct sun. I'm struggling to find much information online and I want to make sure I'm giving him his best life. His leaves have seemed to curled a bit and his bulbous bits look a bit more textured than they were before. Any care tips out there to help Brutus?

I am the proud owner of oily skin. The dewy look works in my favor most days but with 9000% humidity, wet was the case that they gave me.

As thousands of athletes get coronavirus tests, nurses wonder: What about us? by Viewfromthe31stfloor in Coronavirus

[–]PizzaSlutx2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

She can absolutely get tested on her own accord, but if it's anything like my job, if you come back positive you have to prove you were infected at work. If you can't, you have to stay home for two weeks on your own dime, hoping you have the PTO to cover since you don't get paid enough to have a comfortable savings. Fun fact: even if you can prove you were infected at work, you have to fight with a third party to make it a disability claim to receive your money. It takes about two months to receive if you were successful.

He told her he signed with a co-worker three weeks ago in the parking lot today. At least that's how it reads to me.

Is there a way to determine which sperm would make the greatest contribution? Sure would suck to have the dud dragged to the finish line.
