  6. I'm interested in this program! Does anyone know if community college classes are accepted here? Also as long as the prereqs are part of the major curriculum and premed track , it's ok right? Thanks!
  7. Hey guys! I know that the Temple program is relatively new. If anyone can shed some light on why they applied or chose to attend it that would be great! I know PA students learn alongside medical students but if there are any Temple PA students out there I'd like to hear about your experiences! Thanks!!!

  12. Has anyone heard of this: Excell Pre-Physician Assistant Clerkship Program (mainly for those on the east coast) http://excelleducation.com/pre-physician-assistant-program-clerkship-and-mentorship/ It was founded by a PA who graduated from Rutgers, and claims to help pre-PA students get into schools. Has anyone done this program and can talk a bit about their experiences? I'm thinking about doing this but I want to be sure it's legit. Anyone who has heard of or has participated in this is welcome to contribute their thoughts!!!
  13. I'm planning to apply April 2017. I attended a competitive undergrad institution. I am based on the east coast and would like to stay on that side if possible! My Stats are as follows: GPA: 3.67 Biology and premed GRE: Both verbal and math over 155, writing 3.5-should I take this again for writing? HCE: working on CNA class right now, have a job at assisted living facility-will be working full time Volunteered 150 hours nursing home, Volunteered as Physical Therapy Aide for 60 hrs Volunteer at Hospital-20 hrs Research Assistant-3 months summer Shadowed Doctor in surgery and in clinic-65 hrs Raised money for nonprofit org-over 1300 dollars I will have about 1000 hours of HCE when I apply. Should I try to apply to programs that require less HCE or have a preferred HCE status? Do I have a decent shot of getting admitted? Any school recommendations that don't require genetics or med terminology? Thanks!
