Attention all Pre-PA students! This is something really cool that you need to know about. PAEA is the organization that is over physician assistant education, and occasionally they do virtual fairs. This wasn’t around when I was in undergrad, or if it was then I was clueless, but it’s a great opportunity for you. And the best part is that it is FREE!
The dates for the upcoming fair are April 19-20, 2017. All you have to do is visit this link to register. On the days of the event you’ll be able to sign on and interact directly with the PA schools you are interested in. There is a chat option, and video as well. Start compiling your questions so you can finalize the list of where you’ll be applying. This is perfect timing with CASPA about to open for the 2017-2018 cycle.
If you can’t make it to this event, it looks like there will be another one in July, but I’ve heard great things about these virtual fairs. It’s something you don’t want to miss. If you’ve attended one before, comment below to let me know how it was and if you have any tips for other Pre-PA students who are interested in attending.
