  1. Thanks everyone! I'll definitely be checking these out. I appreciate your advice!
  2. Hi everyone! I will be beginning PA school in July and I was wondering if there are any materials that you found helpful to have during didactic year. Any tapes, PANCE reviews books or other study materials that you thought were helpful during this year? I appreciate any information! Thanks in advance.
  3. Hi everyone, I was wondering if there are any current Philadelphia University or Drexel University students or alumni who would be willing to talk to me about these programs? I've done a lot of research on these programs but I'd like to get some additional information from current students or alumni. I would really appreciate the help. Thanks!
  4. You're welcome. My application was verified on 5/12.

    CASPA Layout

    I am starting to get everything organized to apply to PA school next year. I am having some anxiety about CASPA in general because I have never done it before. Can anyone give me tips about the general layout of CASPA? What should I do to be prepared for CASPA? I would just like to have an idea of what I'm doing once CASPA opens next year. Thanks all!
  9. Hi! I was wondering if my stats are competitive enough to apply or if there is anything else you would recommend I do before applying. Also, should I wait to apply next cycle? Thank you so much for your advice!

  10. Thanks for your advice everyone! I'll keep gaining more direct patient contact hours up until I apply next year. I wish I felt more motivated about taking the GRE. The two schools I really like don't require the GRE which might be part of the reason I'm not really interested in taking it. I'll definitely be checking out the stats from previous classes. Thanks!
  11. Hi all, Just wanted to know if I have a realistic shot at getting into PA school. Is there anything else I should be doing to make myself look competitive? Any advice is greatly appreciated!
