For what is worth, my wife has been a PA for 10 years.  It is very tough to get into most programs, and most programs like to see some sort of health care related background to begin with (at least her program did).  In addition, if you are after the bucks then you will most likely need to be looking at rural areas or specialties that require gaining a couple years experience in an area before making the great wages.  You also need to look at the call issues.  Most jobs that she or classmates have had are not 9 to 5 type work and can have a big impact on quality of life etc.  Finally, the biggest issue about being a PA is the doc that you end up under.  You can have a great job or situation, have lots of time invested in a place and they hire a new supervising physician that can ruin it in a minute.  Others have way too much control over what you do, how you do it, and where and what you get paid for doing it. 

She always said that she wished she had never done it, and had instead gone to Med school instead.  Just my (her) 2 cents.

Washburn offers a Jan start if you are willing to come to Kansas....

I have visited the school, pretty nice, small, and very cheap compared to others.  However, Topeka really sucks. Lawrence is close by and would be alright to spend three years in...

I'm taking Testmasters in NJ and my class has only 8 people.  My instructor said her NYC class is HUGE and her NJ class always does better.  But then again, it's also about the amount of effort and discipline.  As for me, I began with a humbling 156. 

Our instructor has also told us that we could expect a significant jump from our diagnostic.  He told us around 10 to 15 points is the norm in his classes.  Most student seem to start around the low to mid 140's and end up around 160's.  He did state that last year he had one that went from 135 something to a 174 or 175.  Very cool. 

Regarding being rushed on the help line, I can't speak to this, as I haven't called it yet.  Personally, I am enjoying the course a lot.  I like the amount of material that they have available. 

Hopefully it will all pay off soon. 

What advice/tips would you give to Testmasters students in larger cities, in terms of reaping the most out of the experience?  Especially to someone who already has a working knowledge of the LSAT?

If you had a specific question or concept that you were having trouble with, you could always try their help line...(from their website The TestMasters Helpline is a toll-free number that we encourage our students to call for academic help. The Helpline is open weekdays from 1PM to 4PM Eastern Time and from 10AM to 1PM Pacific Time. The Helpline provides our students with the opportunity to interact one-on-one with the instructors who teach the TestMasters LSAT Course. )

My TM class has about 15 in it.  We have already developed some ties and everyone seems willing to help each other and has a great attitude.  Our instructor is pretty "different", but seems knowledgeable and keeps the class interesting. 

Good luck in Oct.

Bump...any KU people out there?

Sorry to hear that Werbz...keep your chin up....(slides a tall glass of Bob's your way)

*time for a commercial break...Bob's, it goes good with getting dings from LS that are unable to look pass numbers to see the true abilities of applicants*


is this school in little rock?  it could be worse, a lot worse, it could be in Alabama.

Yeah, right in the middle of town. I applied to a school in Alabama! It looked nice...

lol...I can can only wait for some many letters!

good luck though.  I will have to wait until this fall to start my apps...

I was kind of looking at Miss College of law (not ole' Miss)...thought it looked like a pretty good school for the rankings it received.

I thought about them, as well, but I had already applied to 75 schools...I figured that was enough.
