What Not to Wear on Your First Day of PA School

Because I love a good list, here goes:

The hit parade of what not to wear:


#1 The Bikini
 

Even if you look like this wearing one--don't. 

Actually, especially if you look like this wearing one--don't!

 

 

 

Reasons:  obvious

 

1.-class mates (girls) will hate you instantly

 

2.-class mates (guys) will never look you in the eyes again

 

3.-professors- 

either #1 or #2, possibly both. 

 

And guys, this means 

SPEEDO = NO for you.

 

Just say NO to the Bikini concept, your life in PA school will go smoother.

 

 

 

 


#2 The Tux

 or any Formal Wear 

 

Anything that suggests you just rolled in from last night's adventure is a definite NO!


 

Again, Reasons:  obvious

 

You are here to learn to be a physician assistant, a medical professional, not a reality show celeb -- that comes later.


If you have to think too hard about this one (or #1), revisit your choice of profession. 

 

#3 Stiletto Heels 

Or any type of "fun shoe"

 

Reasons:

 

-Preserve the longevity of your feet, and your ability to stand on them and be a PA when you finish school.

 

-Don't look like you violated choice #2

 

And guys, I guess this means no cowboy boots for you, unless you live in Texas.  

Then anything goes!

 

#4 Absolutely anything you wore last summer!

For me, this will include the above outfit worn in Cairo this past summer (see my Egypt post, "View from a Camel") with my uncle.  

We were trying to blend in, hence the head scarf and long black robes. You will NOT see me in this in PA school.


Reasons:

 

Wear something new and different.  Last summer is so five minutes ago! 

 

You are starting a new and important phase of your life!  Wear something fresh, comfortable and appropriate.

 

 

Buy some new mechanical pencils, highlighters.

Stock up your book bag and open up a new page in your life! 

 

YOUR TURN:

If you are a fellow PA student or a school veteran, let me know in a comment what you would add to this list!
