  1. Just a quick piece of advice...if you do a science major make sure you can keep ur GPAs high. If you have less than a 3.5 (especially for cumulative) or science GPAs PA schools will fear your ability to succeed in their programs. It is often easier to make higher grades in a non-sci major. Not many schools will give preference to a 3.2 Bio major when compared to a 3.5 or so Eng or Span major. Trust me on this. I wish I would have known this myself...speaking from personal experience!

  8. Chg barrier to barriers...sorry not time to help more Watch for exaggerations...indispensable sounds like a lot, maybe a strong addition instead
  9. Reflex change to reflect... Watch ur tenses. If sentence is past tense, keep it that way
  10. There is a very different atmosphere in volunteering v. paid. That is a reality that he was likely emphasizing, just as the schools you apply to will be, even though they may not tell you. Differing pressures, expectations, duties, requirements, etc. from patients, coworkers, staff, providers, managers, other departments, other offices, etc. It's multifaceted and complicated. I enjoy volunteering much more than dealing with the pressures of my paid position. PA Schools will be just as blunt in their opinions, as well.
