How did you hear about CWRU's PA program?  I grew up in the Cleveland area and always was interested in CWRU as a university. When researching PA programs early in my college education, I was actually provided information on this program from my college advisor!

Why did you choose the PA program?  The welcoming feeling that was provided at the interview, the amenities, the faculty accolades, and the community outreach of the program.

What are you looking forward to the most going into your second year in the PA program?  Clinical rotations in some of the best hospitals. I hope to gain a lot of real-world experience in this next year to carry with me through graduation.  

What advice would you give future PA students as they begin to search for programs?  Really look at places where you would like to serve the community and take the time to make sure that the program's goals align with your own. Its hard to make sure that you fit the mold they are asking from students but you also want to be in a place that you will enjoy spending your time in.
