Try focusing on learning correct spelling and grammar before you move on to higher level stuff.

Was going to say, you're not getting into your local community college with spelling and grammar that bad.

Ok, spelling aside...

PA is a good career and has the promise to get better as medical expenses go up, and most things a doctor does a PA is, theoretically, capable of doing. The problem is the bar is set much lower for PAs than an MD/DO, so negligence will always be a factor. This means only people who can't afford a doctor would go to a PA, which means the salary will always be relatively crippled.

The other thing is that physicians hate you because you didn't go to medical school, and the nurses hate you because you have more pull than them.

My buddy just got out of PA school. He loves what he is doing and he is making bank. But the comment on how the bar is lower I think is a misconception. My buddy said that his classes average undergrad GPA was a 3.5 and they had an average of 2-3 years of full-time medical experience to go with it (which is what PA is all about). I think PA is a good career choice for anyone not wanting to do the time of med school.

Do PAs have to go throught the licensing requirements that a doctor does ? Anybody know ?

Different schools, different classes, different qualifying exams, different career. Much of the regulations are done by specific states.

PA's are allowed to do anything a doctor can do, as long as their supervising physician allows it. And again, this depends on state laws. It also means they do whatever a physician doesn't want to do (rectal exams).

So as long as your proffecient you can practice and have a specialization? Is it cheaper? Could a PA take a management role? Interesting stuff.

In addition, PA programs are usually shorter. I know for a fact that at Iowa, the PA program is roughly 6 years, as opposed to 8 for the MD program.

Do you mean Undergraduate + PA/MD school?

Because PA is normally 2 and I've only ever heard of 4 years of MD.

I'm an aero. It is a pain in the ***. you work significantly harder and longer than other forms of engineering, with the exception of possibly chemical. you work preposterous amounts of time more than an average business/management major. you have to be quite good at math, as well as applying mathematical concepts to physical concepts.
you also can't like sleep much. and it does not get any easier the further along your college career.
the job market is also **** right now. and most companies won't look at you if you have below a 3.0. GE and Boeing tend to be the biggest sticklers about this.

on the plus side, you can say you are a rocket scientist.

but seriously, type properly.

Yes. I included undergraduate years in both of those numbers.

sounds like you just want to make money...

and by the way you type, i would say you are not capable of doing either.
