  1. Thank you to everyone who has answered so far! I guess, from what you guys have said, my best option is to attend a local CC and pay for the classes through private loans and my own paycheck. Any additional advice is totally welcome!
  2. @ChristineQLe Thanks so much for your response! I'll definitely start talking to some community colleges then. It's good to know you (and lots of people on this website) are in the same boat as me; it gives me hope lol!
  3. Hey there, I know there are definitely a couple of schools that have a minimum GPA of 2.75, but I think that's really as low as they'll go, and even with the bare minimum, you'd need to have a lot of great stats with everything else (lots of PCE, good volunteer work, great references, etc.). But it's not the end of the world! Just take the time out to improve the GPA for a couple of semesters, get great experience, and see what happens!
  4. Hi everyone! I'm new to this forum and I want to ask a question that's been bugging me for a while. I recently graduated with a bachelor's in Neuroscience and Music, and my final GPA is pretty low (cumulative 2.85, science is much lower than that, unfortunately). I went through some incredibly rough times in college, but I've come to terms with the fact that I'll need to retake a bunch of classes (probably at a CUNY or something) to really improve my chances of getting into PA school. I'm determined, I'm way more focused, and I'm not giving up on this dream, so I'll do what it takes! My only concern, though, is how I'll pay for the extra classes. Since I'm currently working part-time, I'm technically not a dependent anymore, so my parents definitely won't be contributing anything. For anyone out there who took classes after graduating, can you tell me how you paid for those classes? Did you use any scholarships, save up money from PCE-related jobs, financed entirely with federal loans, etc.? Thanks in advance! P.S. On a related side note, how many classes did you decide to take a semester? How long did it take for you to finish all of your prerequisites? Thanks again!
