  1. im looking to take general chem 1 at UNE as well, anyone have any thoughts on it? @AmbitiousPA2B have you started gen chem 2 at UNE? any thoughts
  2. If you dont mind me asking, where did you get accepted? Also, what were your stats for PCE/HCE? Im in the same GPA range as you but im debating whether or not I should apply Thank you
  3. thank you! i really do appreciate the advice, I will definitely look into getting a certification over the summer!
  4. im currently still in college as undergrad so its hard to keep both jobs. also regarding my job as a scribe- I did not even start it. I had only done training and by the time i finished, I got called for an interview for MA. as an MA, the office allows me to scribe as well- working with the EMR! im just wondering if this is sufficient because my friend told me it does not look good being uncertified yet I am still getting a lot of exposure
  5. Hello friends! I made a post previously about recently getting a job as an ED scribe- which I did not even officially start. I went for one training and was immediately called for an interview for MA. However many people had mentioned that being a scribe is not always the best type of patient contact- especially when I don't have any other hours. So, I got myself another job at an allergist office where I administer allergy tests, vitals, billing, and everything else in an office. I am working as an uncertified MA. Do you guys think that this is a good place to start and continue fulfilling my hours? I quit my job as a scribe because I felt that this way I would be getting more exposure in being with contact with patients. Thank you & Happy Holidays!
  6. Hello, this is my first post on this forum. I have yet to read through all the interesting and helpful posts that are here. So I am a junior in college studying Exercise Science. I am stuck in a situation of when to apply to PA school. I have a 3.3 GPA with a 2.9 science GPA - I know that this is not good and I am hoping to improve this from this semester's courses- which have been going well. I also have an upward trend in my grades- I made many mistakes freshman year and all of it is coming back now to bite me. I have minimal HCE hours- roughly 50-100?. I am just starting to work as a medical scribe this week and hopefully, I will be able to gather hours from that and learn a lot about working in an emergency department. Aside from that, I am unsure of to apply this upcoming spring semester or to wait until my senior year. I know that my GPA will be a little better than what it is now and that I will have a sufficient amount of hours if i apply senior year. Doing this will cause me to have a gap year after I graduate, which is something that my parents don't agree with. Its hard for me to understand but I can see where it is coming from. I am unsure of what to do and would really appreciate advice. If I were to apply this spring 2018, I would have to take my GRE in January and study with the 3 weeks I have during winter break. It is a lot to take in but I would like to figure it out before I spend a lot of money on applications knowing that I don't have a chance of being accepted. Thank you a lot. I really appreciate all the help that I can get.
