  1. I am preparing for my third cycle in 2021 and am working on retaking/taking new classes. I have been retaking classes this year and plan to retake Genetics in spring 2021 (I have retaken all classes I got a C in). Im debating on retaking micro or taking pathophysiology after. Micro I took previously and got a B-, but I do want to take it again just to refreshen up on it. Or should I take pathophysiology, which I havent taken before? Ive heard its the best class to prepare you for PA school, but I'm nervous about taking it and not updating my knowledge on microbiology.
  2. I think both provide their own valuable experiences! Like someone said, I think it depends on what type of patients you want to care for and what you enjoy more. I got my EMT license because I am more interested in emergent/trauma situations, but CNA positions can allow you to help more in long care facilities. It also depends on what jobs you can get in your hometown also. In my hometown, if you have an EMT license OR a CNA license you can be an ER tech. Look around at hospitals and clinics and see what licensure they require
  3. NOVA is super competitive and most people who get accepted have gpas around 3.5,3.6 and up. I’m not saying it’s impossible though, I know some people with 3.3-3.4s who got in. You just need to make the rest of your application as competitive as possible. Be sure to get As in all those classes, and work on getting good quality PCE ASAP. Also shadowing and volunteering can go a long way, especially now that you still have a couple years before applying you can get good hours in those areas too. Maybe even look for research opportunities at FSU if you can find some.
  4. I dont think it has to do with anything regarding conduct or anything, Im pretty sure its just the chart was brought up because the patient is suing. I was always sure to not leave PHI out in the open or anything like that.
  5. I was a scribe for 4 years and left that position over a year ago. I just received an email that a law firm is seeking my deposition for what I'm assuming is a patient I charted on. Im probably over-reacting, but do these show up on PA school applications, and if so, do they have a huge effect on my application as a whole?
  6. LOL im down for a pity part group chat...Im entering my third cycle next year
  7. If your GPA is around 3.2-3.3 I would retake them to get As. I applied my first two rounds without retaking them and have C's in Gen chem 1 and 2 (GPA around 3.3). This third cycle Im retaking to get all As
  8. Hi! I’m in the same boat, I got Cs in gen chem I and II in undergrad and are retaking them due to my low gpa. I retook chem I this summer and am taking chem II in the fall. I would say it depends on how long ago you took the classes in undergrad. In chem I everything came back to me so it was pretty easy to get an A. If you took it recently I would say you can take gen chem II first because you’ll probably remember most of the material and won’t need the introduction material in gen chem I
  9. Most schools are allowing it, yes. Youll just have to look on the schools website to confirm
  10. Ill read yours if you read mine
  11. Hi Everyone, I am planning on applying to this school in 2021. Does anyone know schools that offer 4 credit psychology classes? Everywhere I look I can only find 3 credit psychology classes.
  12. Im applying next cycle , which will be my third cycle overall, and some schools Im applying to dont require the GRE. I took the GRE, only because my gpa is low and I got a good score on the GRE and want to show my GPA isnt an accurate representation of me. I would say if your stats otherwise look great, you dont have to take the GRE. Especially if you're not good at taking standardized tests. Like you said there are surprisingly a large number of schools out there that dont require it
