It's early, but I figured to start a new thread for those applying for the 2017-2018 cycle. 

 

I applied to PA school last cycle but will be a first-time applicant this year for Northeastern.

 

What about you guys?

For those of you working on the program specific portion of your CASPA application...

 

Does anyone have any thoughts on whether the "personal statement" prompt for Northeastern should be written in a personal narrative format or if it is more appropriate to answer the prompt as an essay question? The character allowance is as much as the CASPA personal statement, so I wasn't sure if it was necessary to write an entirely different personal statement focused on their specific topic or not..

I think it's a great prompt. I kept mine more general, talking about all continuums of medicine. Mine is about a page long.

I have over 10K but I have been working fulltime for several years including while in college. I would think other aspects of your application might give you some wiggle room as long as the other 800 are planned?
