    Is there a website that ranks PA schools according to their national certifying test scores?

    us news and world report ranks pa programs , but take it with a grain of salt. they only rank ms level prograns and even those ratings are based on reputation of instructors, so it is a popularity contest. it leaves out many of the best programs like medex in washington which give a bs.

    I know... just having fun with you.

    I'm really impressed with our school here, though. A very student-oriented, responsive, high-quality masters program with a franciscan heart for the underserved.
