    I was stoked to apply for the NHSC Scholarship, but found out that us Pre-Specialty guys are ineligible. This is from their Application Guide:

    Applicants are
    ineligible if they are:
    (1) Enrolled in a physician assistant (P.A.) program and are specializing in areas other than primary health care. For example, P.A. programs with a surgical or emergency room focus;
    (2) In the pre-professional phase of their health professions education. For example, taking undergraduate pre-requisites for admission to a P.A. training program;
    (3) Enrolled in a nursing Bridge Program. For example, RN-MSN, BSN-MSN, Direct Entry, Graduate Pre-specialty or Entry to Practice programs; OR
    (4) Pursuing a doctoral degree in nursing.

    Really sucks...

    I believe the pre-specialty program does count as Direct Entry - that's what it's called at almost every other school, but yeah, seems surprising that you have to actually be enrolled, so I guess it would only cover the 2nd year of our program! It seems a lot of the scholarships are that way - I know the ACNM scholarship is only for people who've completed at least 1 semester

    For starters, would you rather live in New Haven or Nashville? Seems like an obvious choice to me...

    Yah. Definitely different. I'm from the Northeast though, so Yale is a lot closer to my family and I've never really had much exposure to the south. I'm going down to visit in a couple weeks though! It would be cool to try something really different...!
