  1. The thing is I would have to do all my prereqs here with the course load of my major on top of that. And, I would graduate still with little life experience, because I don't think I would have time to get experience and keep my gpa above a 3.5. I would still be going to receive a UC degree if I went to CC. I would have two year of upper division classes at Davis but two years at a CC where I could take prereqs(my cc offers most if not all needed prereqs. Its pretty good as far as CC's go). Likewise, I can only take around 12 units a semester(it would be 3 semesters cause I'm not getting in for this semester and can't cap my transferable units out) and probably do work at the same time and be fine.
  2. The thing is, if I stay at UCLA my GPA will drop and I will not be able to get any patient experience because I will be too busy trying to keep my gpa in the acceptable range. I think most programs stop you if you are below a 3.0 or 3.3 in some cases. I'm curious how you got interviews? I am currently a south campus major trying to push my luck XD. I just took two finals in fact for summer session.
  3. After a while of revising my priorities and passions, I have lead myself to know that I want to become a PA. However, at this very moment I am in a pickle. I go to UCLA but do not want to continue here. I have my first year done (11 classes) with a good gpa at 3.75. However, this year almost killed me to get that not perfect gpa. Likewise, I have few hours working in the medical field and need to rack up some more hours. My next year if I continue at UCLA will load on more classes with no buffer, I am certain that my gpa will suffer and continue to fall do to the sheer amount of grade deflation. I fear it will drop below a 3.5 easily. Likewise, I will have no time to pick up hours or get any experience due to constantly studying on the quarter system. My other option is to transfer to my local community college and finish up prerequisites there and then transfer after two years to UC Davis on a tag agreement (basically if your gpa is high enough in certain classes you get guaranteed admission). If I did this route I would take the phlebotomy certification class this summer and try to get a job while I complete my two years at a cc. I am trying to exit undergrad in the best position to apply to PA school even if I need to work an extra year to get more experience. I am not quite sure what to do. Any advice? Will PA programs look negatively upon Community college prerequisites even if some were done at a four year with good marks?
