    IDK because ADL are good but are you going to be taking glucose levels or vitals. They would probably count them as Healthcare experience

    Admissions for Minorities

    Thats a cop out. The discussion does not die because you choose not to speak on it. Thats cowardly. Guess what obviously their are strong feelings about the topic. So the discussion is needed. Everything is not always sunshine and roses. In the real world people are having these discussions everyday. There are always going to be those individuals who take things to the next level. Thats life. It still does not justify closing a topic.

    Admissions for Minorities

    Why is it when someone brings up race, all of a sudden people get in their feelings. I mean its a real thing, that minorities have to deal with. Its not made up. @EMEDPA made a great point about PA programs starting to go to undeserved communities and not just to treat but to educate about the PA profession and how to become a PA. I can honestly say I first found out about PA's in college. This is a great discussion we are all here for the same reason to be better than we were yesterday. But we can not act like we are oblivious to the fact that medical schools are more diverse than PA schools. @athleticgingerpta I really do not understand why you are so mad. Its ok if you do not like diversity. At least your honest. Its ok if you feel attacked. But one thing I know for sure that would really upset you would be seeing a complete minority cohort. Would you say that school lowered their standards. You would probably say they discriminated against white people. But with the same breathe, have no problems with an all white cohort. Wheres the lie?

    Admissions for Minorities

    The 2015 data did reveal some key trends. The medical school acceptance rate is a pivotal data point for applicants, undergraduate advisors, medical school admissions committees, and medical education policymakers. The 2015 medical school acceptance rate is 41.1%. Acceptance rates differ among select racial and ethnic subgroups. White (44%), Asian (42%), and Hispanic or Latino (42%) applicants all have comparatively similar acceptance rates. African American or Black applicants have a lower acceptance rate of 34%. http://www.aamcdiversityfactsandfigures2016.org/report-section/section-3/
  6. [Inappropriate editorializing deleted] CLOSE TO NINE IN 10 PAS ARE WHITE AND LESS THAN ONE IN 10 IS HISPANIC White: 87.3% Asian: 4.7% Two or More Races: 4.4% Black or African American: 3.0% American Indian or Alaskan: 0.4% Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islander: 0.2%

    I got my interview scheduled for this month
  11. no interview yet..but hopefully that email comes soon..
  12. So I got verified, which is amazing..but my GPA was not calculated correctly. Anyone else experience having their GPA not be accurate to what you calculated yourself. I am missing 4 much needed grades. Im not worried or anything because my transcripts show that CASPA messed up. But its just annoying, because doubt starts to creep in your thoughts..which just adds to the already stressful situation.

    Struggling with personal statement

    Honestly you should try a writing service. I had great experience this cycle with one that really turned my PS into a work of art no lie.. Im actually going to make a video about the benefits of using one sometime next week.
