The fire extinguisher is not just for show
You sure about that? so you have checked with every PA program, and asked the applicants if they applied to med school? especially the ones who are under the age of 25?PA programs are not filled with medical school applicants who didn’t get in. It’s not a point of great importance, but it’s wrong and it may negatively color some people’s perceptions so I thought I’d chime in. Generally people are admitted based on their merits as an applicant to the profession.
Think about this: in many cases, the prerequisite classes are similar. they often have high academic requirements, with minimal prior work requirements. they are providers in the medical field. No, not every PA students got rejected from medical school, but to say there aren't any is sheer ignorance.
And yes, a college student with high grades in the sciences and some work experience in healthcare (and a bachelors degree) often makes for a strong admission to PA school too.
