"I'm not gonna lie... when I went the quality of instruction was "ok"... most of the profs simply reading from power points, we could have done that at home.... nothing groundbreaking/ inspiring/ novel here.... also, and this may be nit-picking, but all the profs are essentially suburban "Long-Island types" which is kind of a shame to be schooling in the city yet not getting a "live and work in NYC" feel from instructors.... HOWEVER... the boon here which cannot be quantified is that you will rotate through NYU gross anatomy lab, and NYC Hospitals, and NOTHING can hold a candle to that.... the experiences had in 5 borough hospitals cannot be matched and it will sustain much of your future career... for that reason, no regrets...."

"All physician assistant programs prepare you. Pace University is incredibly expensive. Four times expensive as some other New York programs. The quality of education does not meet the cost. The head of the program is defensive and a typical bureaucrat. Nothing about the program justifies the cost. You'd think for $120k+ you might get a PA only study room or free coffee but no dice. Facilities are underwhelming. Cost of living is incredibly high. Rotations can be anywhere in the tristate area. Go elsewhere."

"The Pace University- Lenox Hill Hospital Physician Assistant program is ranked top 50 in the country. Although ranking does not hold much importance when applying for jobs, I truly believe this is one of the best programs in the country. The professors are amazing and want you to succeed. They do everything in their power to make sure everyone in class understands the material and will grow to be the best medical practitioners. The balance between lectures and working in a clinical setting is perfect. Many programs do not require their students to interact with patients as one of their main courses, but at Pace they make sure you know all the physical exams and are comfortable properly performing them on patients before being thrown into rotations. Not only is the coursework excellent but the community service opportunities give everyone a chance to make an impact on the community. This year my class raised so much money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Light the Night walk to end cancer that we were in the top 5 groups to raise the most out of every group in Manhattan that participated! Pace university does not only teach you how to be a Physician Assistant but also how to be a better person. I am so proud to be a part of this institution!"

"Pace University has an amazing graduate program for physician assistant studies as compared to other schools. They are very punctual and have everything set up into a schedule for the students. They have many opportunities for their students including simulation labs, cadaver labs at NYU, real lab exam rooms, staff and professors that are available everyday and their location is in the center of it all. I honestly haven't found any cons yet."
