  1. Good luck to you! Texas native applying too Managed to submit first week of May. BUT I am confused. I did attend the info session, but I'm still unclear. Do we need to send the program our transcripts or not? I assumed no, because basically no schools do that. But I keep getting emails saying my 'graduate school application' isn't complete because of that. So just paranoid that they won't look at it without those. I looked at the FAQ, but honestly their stuff isn't completely up to date.
  2. I'm a little confused, do we still need to send UT RGV our transcripts directly? Or just through CASPA? I thought we only had to send them our transcripts directly if we were applying for the Bridge program, but on the application status page, it says that I need to send them my transcripts...
  3. All my classes look like they were still in CASPA when I checked again. I'll be submitting a transcript for a school that I took a class for this spring, but otherwise nothing has changed. So I shouldn't need to reorder transcripts from my other university again, right?
  4. Willing to return the favor :-) My big concern right now: It's too long and I'm trying to figure out what to get rid of. Let me know and I'll PM you the link!
  5. That's good to know. Do you happen to know if EMT courses will go towards my science GPA/cGPA at all? It would be through a training academy rather than through a community college, I think.
  6. Thanks for all the advice guys. As much as it sucks, I think based on what y'all have said, I'll probably abstain from reapplying this round and instead I'll be submitting some applications to some cardiovascular tech/respiratory therapy programs near me. I figure they'll still be viable career options while also still giving me what I'll need to apply to PA school again in the future. Thanks again!
  7. Hey Ket, Thanks for taking the time to respond. To answer your questions: 1. I did retake college algebra (which I hadn't done so well in the first time), and an additional med term class. I'm going to start a stats class next week and a microbio class in the fall if I can find one that fits my hours since i'm currently working FT M-F 8-5. 2. Between the first and second cycle I gained more healthcare experience since I continued working as a scribe and got promoted to a manager position (but still scribing.) Had 5 recommendation letters that time as opposed to 2-3 prev
  8. Hi guys! 3rd time applicant here. I graduated in 2015 with my psychology degree and a 3.3 GPA. My science GPA is around a 3.0 the last time I checked. HCE: 2,000+ hours as a medical scribe with leadership experience as a scribe manager Shadowing: 100+ hours (give or take) Volunteer: Several years volunteering in several emergency departments LOR: aiming for 3: one from a PA, one from my boss, and one from another PA or doc. Unfortunately, I haven't gained any more hours since I last applied last year since I was promoted within my company from a scribe
  9. Hi all! So I've been working for the same scribe company for almost 3 years now and scribed for 2. Last July I was promoted into a corporate position where I'm responsible for driving engagement with our employees, university relations, etc. This would be my 3rd round applying. My question is: I know that being promoted is technically considered a good thing, but should I bother putting my new position into my personal statement, or should I continue to just highlight my previous experience? Thanks in advance!
  10. Hey guys, So I contacted Wingate and was told that the program is full now. :/ I guess they haven't yet sent out rejection letters/emails.
  11. Anyone hear anything else yet? I had been emailing Susan Lance back and forth last month and she said she would let me know about interview dates in the Spring, but I haven't heard anything yet.
  12. Hey all, I'm a little late to the party but I didn't discover RFU until pretty late. I was still considering submitting an application there, but I know the deadline is in a few days. Does anyone think it's still worth applying? Are there still any interviews left?
  13. So I realized later that I hadn't entered my volunteer info into my CASPA, so I fixed it and updated it. :( Do you guys think this will affect my chances?
  14. Can someone honestly tell me if there's still any point in submitting right now? Or am I just wasting time and money? GPA 3.3 :/
  15. Thanks for the help guys!! I will definitely try to retake a class or two at a 4 year university if I can help it, but either way I'll likely be retaking something.
