  1. Did they ask any questions on healthcare reform at all? affordable care act and all that stuff?
  2. DarkMario616, Were all or some of the interviews conducted scenario type of questions like acting? or how was it?
  3. Is the interview process all 1 on 1 interviews? If so, how many? and was there any writing involved prior to the interviews? How long is the interview process typically?
  4. Sorry to bother you just a little more info and one more question. I took the pre-reqs at a well known and highly looked at university where I did my undergrad. In fall and spring I took between 8-13 hours. So about 3-4 classes a semester including labs. Also, do you think if I did not choose to retake the GRE it would be detrimental to me getting accepted or getting an interview? Thanks again!
  5. Hi, I hope you're doing well and thank you for taking time out of your day and answering all of our questions. I am a recent graduate and graduated with a GPA of 3.0 in a business degree. However, I had a change of heart of what I want to do with my life and did not want to pursue a business anymore, but instead take the healthcare route and pursue PA school. I have taken a year off to work and take pre-requesites. My pre-req GPA is a 3.7 and my science GPA is 3.58. My GRE score is a 144 Verbal,145 Quantitative and 3.5 AW. I am a student athlete and have over 1000 hours as a CNA. I also have volunteer work in helping with the community. Mostly throughout undergrad I was not really focused or put any time towards my academics because I was so interested in my athletics and school came last. Fortunately, I decided sports was not what I wanted to do by the end of graduation and decided to take classes and achieve good grades in them to prove to schools I have what it takes to handle these classes and receive good grades as well. I would love any feedback you can give me. I plan to apply in April/May. What are my chances? I just need an interview and I know I can impress them.
  6. Well thats a relief to hear lol...I appreciate your input. How are you liking your profession?? 28 years in EM. I am thinking I would want to do EM or Urgent Care. How are the hours?
  7. I have my CNA and as of now I have about 1200 hours give or take. I'm worried about the GRE score.
  8. Hey guys. I just took the GRE and received a 144 V and 145 Q and 3.5 AW. My science GPA is a 3.7. My Cumulative GPA is a little low at 3.0 and my pre-requisite GPA is a 3.6. I have over 1000 HCE, student athlete, a lot of volunteering and helping around the community. Only worries are my GRE scores and that low cumulative GPA which was lower before I came back to school. Any advice or encouragement would be helpful. Do you guys think any schools would look at me/I could get in? As we all know, this process is super stressful. Thanks in advance for reading and posting.

  10. For some reason, It's so weird to me that medical schools don't require anatomy as a pre-req.
  11. Haha guys first of all this topic is about how much you knew/remembered going into PA school
  12. RMathews619 thanks for the reply! great to hear you learn a lot and are doing well. How long did it take you to find a job after graduation? and what did you specialize in if you don't mind me asking?
