    • Hi all! I’m reapplying next round and I’m trying to get my whole application better. I took emt school and am now working as an emt, since having no hands on patient care was something I think that held me back last year. I was talking to someone who said the classes you took in emt school can count towards your gpa for CASPA, is this true? And does it apply to a vocational type of school? My emt school was its own school, sort of like a vocational school and not at a community college
    • Has anyone applied? Been verified?
    • I submitted my application on 7/2 and had to wait the full 10 business day for the "professional" (and I use that term lightly) transcript entry which came back with 5 mistakes.  Then I got those changed and reviewed again and submitted on Monday 7/16 and have still not been verified.    
    • So to answer some question. Yes it will look lazy if you don’t change your personal statement. You can use the same sources for LORs. In terms of other things, the GRE is one thing, even if all your current schools don’t require it, taking it will open up more schools. Volunteering can be an important aspect as it shows commitment to service of your community. Shadowing also looks good. As you said if your GPA is good then HCE is your major point to work on.
