I feel extremely blessed to have received WICHE support. I have a wife and three children, so the amount of money I require is considerably more than a single student. My program is so intense that I would not have been able to work outside of class/clinicals and still do well. My home state does not have a PA program, so I knew that I was headed elsewhere from the very beginning. It was very much in my thoughts to apply to schools that were WICHE participants. I was able to go to a great school with great faculty who care about my education. I strongly urge anyone involved in decisions about WICHE to continue supporting this opportunity. It really makes a difference in the lives of those who are fortunate enough to receive it!
