Hi all,

Im considering going to Anesthesiologist Assistant school, but Ive been a little discouraged at some of the posts on this site, among others.

Many posters state that the job market for AA grads is bleak. I dont really understand this, as the government has projected a 25% increase in AA positions from 2008 to 2018 (much faster than average). Many people say that more states will open up to AAs, and further, UKMC, the school that I want to attend, has had a 100% job placement rate for grads since its founding back in 2005.

Why are people bad mouthing the profession so much when AAs have close to a 100% job placement rate?
