PA School

I'm not sure if anyone here can help me out at all or not. A good friend of mine went missing last year up in AK and was never heard from since. http://socnet.com/showthread.php?t=135013

I've kept in touch with his family and his daughter was looking for help to try and get her daughter into PA School. I don't know very much about PA School and was wondering if anyone could be of any help to her.

Put a small child in a playpen with an apple and a bunny. If s/he eats the apple and plays with the bunny, s/he's normal;but if s/he eats the bunny and plays with the apple, I'll buy you a new car. Somewhere along the line we must have been TAUGHT to do the wrong thing.

She has 6 months to a year left in college. I guess she has organic chemistry left and wants to take it in a classroom over online course so she's waiting to see what the college is going to do.

Good choice / plan

O Chem is a gatekeeper class in a lot of PA programs. so good choice, again...

Is he looking to stay in AK, or will she travel for school?

My nephew is on terminal leave. He was the 1/506th, 101st Airborne Battalion PA. He is taking a few months off then heading Oconus as a contractor. He broke the dark side family tradition of FDNY lol

Thumbs up Better than I could have hoped...

Hi Terry,

ALL is MUCH better. I am walking and working again. My Neurosurgeon is impressed at my progress. I am not quite at maximum healing yet (1 year) but the feeling in my R leg is not expected to return and the partial lack of the same in my left is also looking permanent. None the less, I am WALKING, not peeing or pooping in a bag, and Shannon remains satisfied bedroom wise so I have no complaints. I'll never run again, but I hated running anyway
Thank you for your well wishes - I was fortunate enough to be promoted to lead advanced provider for our Trauma Center...I was humbled to say the least, honored to be sure. Plus I am back to teaching and mentoring PA students from the local universities. Very rewarding.
Stay well my friend.

It says you aren't accepting PM's. That sounds like you've been through some rough shit. Hope you keep getting better.

She isn't in AK but is willing to go to a school she gets accepted to.

That is great to hear.

USSFPA has offered his assistance. I'd take him up on it.

I'd love to get his assistance, I just have no way to contact him because his account won't allow me to send him private messages.
