  1. the pandemic and its effects might render a change in the rolling admission/timeline in how they evaluate applicants. if not, ideally you have a strong application to where submission time is irrelevant. best of luck
  2. since your only option is to retake it in the summer i wouldn't even bother. the only way i would retake it is 1) i know that i'm going to learn the material and ace it (if i remember correctly, caspa takes the average of the two grades, so say you got a B in the class like orgo 1, it's pretty much negates the reason for retaking it when compared to the summer cost) 2) it works into your schedule because as you know it's tough class that requires all attention. definitely take biochem and ace it. it'll show that you bounced back. and im assuming it's an upper division course and probably need the orgos to enroll. if anything, just be able to explain in the interview why you got the C in orgo 2 and why that isn't a hindrance in ur ability to succeed in the fast paced pa curriculum. explaining is one thing but then be able to show you can is another.
  3. Question for anyone that may know the answer: I just paid my supplemental application fee today (but was verified on CASPA several months ago); will I be too late for the October 1st deadline, even though I received a paypal receipt? I read that it takes a "few days" for them to be notified. If anyone knows please let me know. Hopefully I didn't miss the deadline...eeep!
  4. Has anyone else received an interview invite for subsequent dates (other than March 5th)?
  5. I'm wondering if all acceptances went out today in some form--whether that be via call or email--and those wait listed or denied will be notified Monday
  6. WigginsD, when did you submit your supplemental application?
  7. You really have to have an interest in why and how the human body works and responds and adapts. If it doesn’t excite, medicine might not be the right path. You don’t have to be 100% interested in the nitty-gritty details in your pre-req courses (like the Robinson-Annulation mechanism in organic chem or something else that narrow) but you need to enjoy the rudimentary part of science or the courses you take in PA school will be boring.
  8. Pick whatever major you want. Of course, you need to meet the pre-reqs for the program you’re applying to, so a type of science major will be more conducive to meeting that requirement. But, whatever you’re interested in learning, you should major in that, and everything else will follow.
  9. Really? I called yesterday and they told me they couldn’t change the process at all this year due to their current review. Mmm...
  10. Absolutely disgusting but not surprising. There’s a reoccurring theme with many of these pa programs—money is the top priority to them.
  11. Would you give it up already? This post doesn’t take away from the BS you posted a month ago. Quit saying things that create more animus.
  12. Received it as well. Tbh, the required background check/drug test is morally wrong and should be considered a crime. Why are applicants required to give money and provide detailed personal information when we aren’t even guaranteed an interview? More importantly, they can’t even say with 100% certainty that they will be an accredited program come next year—because it’s contingent upon their review. So, why should applicants have to spend money for something of that matter prior to their program review and a personal interview? not only seems pretty wrong IMO but also a cheap, sad way to take some money. Pity.
  13. Not that it really matters to the subject matter—although it kinda does since we’re on an educated forum—but I think you meant to say “melanin” not melatonin. Big difference btwn the 2
