  1. CASPA automatically converts all quarter units into semester units. 1 quarter unit = 0.667 semester units. CDU will use the units as calculated by CASPA to meet the prerequisite requirements. I think this notice is more for the applicant to be conscientious of the unit requirement when assigning courses to the prerequisite in CASPA.
  2. This is good to know!! I have AP credits that I can use, then! Thank You.
  3. @roadtomed, If you are applying this application cycle to start August 2021, your prerequisites must be completed by May 30, 2021. However, you cannot have more than 2 outstanding prerequisites when you submit your application.
  4. @MedIsLifePA, there is no supplemental application. See their FAQ on their website for this and more info.
  5. @VVTVV, I don't think the 8 units of bio needs to be a full year sequence. I'm under the impression the requirement can equally be fulfilled by a General Bio course plus an upper division course, similar to their General Chemistry 8 unit requirement: Organic or Biochemistry: upper level chemistry courses with lab are preferred and count toward total general chemistry requirement of 8 units
  6. Yale PA online has a January (2021) start for each cohort.
  7. Hi @sutekidane, This pandemic has certainly had a huge impact on applicants and incoming students. I would recommend reading this blog post from myPAresource that gives some insight on how to approach the COVID essay: https://www.myparesource.com/blog-1/caspas-new-covid-19-essay You mentioned that you've had difficulty getting PCE and your CNA course was delayed; I would focus on that. Struggling emotionally certainly takes its toll on motivation, but the inability to find a job to give you more clinical experience or training as a CNA is a tangible example for admissions to see how
  8. Agree with @TylerV, you will need to check each PA School's site for information. Also be sure to check the schools that are participating in the virtual fair, as only a select number will be featured there. If you have specific questions, it may be faster for you to contact the school directly also. Most virtual presentations reiterate the information already stated on their website. Hope this helps
  9. Hi All, Thought I would get a topic started for this app cycle! I had a question about the CDU English requirement. I have emailed them and left a voicemail, but I haven't heard a response. At UCSD I completed a 5 course series in Humanities (2 are 6 unit courses, 3 are 4 unit courses) which fulfilled our writing requirement. There is also no formal English department, though there is a Literature department. Western University in Pomona, CA accepts Humanities in place of their English requirement, so I'm wondering if CDU has a similar policy. Any help or in

  11. Hi @jakayrdh, As of today, tuition for Doane open university courses is $395 per unit.
  12. I’ve taken a few courses at Doane. All have been very well structured and thorough. Most assignments can be cranked out in a weekend if you set aside the time, otherwise be prepared to spend an hour or two per day. Especially if you’re working, it’s a great flexible option.
  13. Check the pinned discussion board for “Low GPA Schools”. Another user made a google doc that includes several schools that recalculate GPA. Usually, recalculate last 60 units not necessarily just prerequisite GPA
  14. CASPA's GPA Calculator can be downloaded from their website: https://help.liaisonedu.com/CASPA_Applicant_Help_Center/Submitting_and_Monitoring_Your_CASPA_Application/Verification_and_GPA_Calculations_for_CASPA/2_How_Your_GPA_is_Calculated You'll need to type in all of your courses individually, so it takes some time. To standardize a wide variety of transcripts, CASPA converts 1 quarter unit = 0.667 semester units. Do not be surprised if the calculated GPA is lower than you expected. This is common. So as others have advised, always shoot for above the minimums.
  15. Samuel Merritt University in Oakland, CA accepts Medical Scribing as PCE. This was a recent change after re-evaluating the amount of exposure scribes get in a variety of settings. Samuel Merritt PA Program
