    Better Overview of Curriculum Needed

    I liked the book very much, however I would be lying if I said it helped me decide on the PA profession. I felt that a more in depth look at what PA school would be like as opposed to RN, MD, or NP would have been an excellent addition to the book. Overall very clearly written book, and an easy read for someone thinking about PA school or currently is applying for PA school.
