    2018-2019 cycle

    I just received an interview invite for 11/7!!
  4. I'm having a hard time finding PAs to shadow, I was only able to one so far. I'm a Bio B.S grad of UAlbany and currently work as a PCT at Albany Med. I have tried both AMC and SPH but no luck. I have called a lot of clinics not affiliated with AMC or SPH too. (AMC called me back and told me to stop cold calling their clinics ? and no luck with SPH) and they have either given me the run around or told me "no" due to HIIPPA or that their PAs don't want the extra responsibility of a shadow. Does anyone one know a PA in the area. It seems that the only way to convince a PA for shadow is to have some connections. Cold calling is not working. I would really appreciate any advice!! Feel free to DM me.

    Seeking to Shadow a PA in Albany, NY

    Hey i'm in the same area as you trying to find a PA to shadow. I've gotten in contact with a few clinics and PAs but they all either refused or never got back to me. Were you able to find someone to shadow and if so will you be able to connect me with them.

    Accepted into PA school with GPA 3.3

    May I ask what schools you applied to and who gave you interviews and where you were accepted? My stats are somewhat similar to yours. Your acceptance gives me a little hope!
  7. If you don't mind me asking what were the clinics that allowed you to shadow with them? I have called a lot of clinics not affiliated with AMC or SPH (AMC called me back and told me to stop cold calling their clinics :( and no luck with SPH) and they have either given me the run around or told me "no" due to HIIPPA or that their PAs don't want the extra responsibility of a shadow. I would really appreciate advice!!
  8. Hi, I'm looking for any PAs that are near Troy, Schenectady, or Albany, that would allow me to shadow them. I need to have more shadowing hours for my CASPA application. If you are willing please contact me. Thank you!
  9. For those of you that went for the interview, If its okay to share, what was the essay on and what requirements did it have. And what was the interview process like?

    Apply and hope for the best or wait?

    If your GPA shows an upward trend then apply to schools that focus more on the last 60 credits or last 30 science credits. I came across a couple of those in my search. Apply to schools without the 3.0 min sGPA requirement so your application doesn't get screened out immediately. Along with that you'll need to take the GRE and score above the 50th percentile and as stated before you'll need to retake couple classes. I will be doing the same to be a better candidate next cycle. Good Luck!
  11. Hey guys i'm interested in applying this cycle. I was wondering how your experience with them was. Any idea how many transfer students they accept.
  12. My stats:Major: B.S. Biology cGPA: 3.18sGPA: 2.9Non-science GPA: 3.4GRE: (Q - 151, V - 153, Writing - 3.0) PCE Hours: 2000 as EMT, HCE Hours: 500 as ER Scribe and 100 as Transportation aideVolunteer hours: 300+ at Free Clinic, 200+ other Shadowing hours: 10 (having a really tough time finding someone to say yes) What are some schools that I can apply to next cycle that i would have a chance in, I know my stats aren't competitive at all. I would really appreciate any advice
