  1. Hi all, two questions: 1. If your transcript does not have your Biology or Chemistry Lab grades, how do you fill out the prerequisites when assigning courses?

I dont think you came off as rude, it is helping me craft my letter better. Perhaps I wont mention I am already close to getting 1000 hours
  6. Thanks, that was very helpful! I agree there is a lot of extra shenanigans in there. I'll work on that.
  7. Hi all, I am crafting a letter to some schools to see if they would accept my role as a clinical systems educator as clinical hours. It is a fairly unique role with new EMRs coming out like our big Cerner implementation in Concord, New Hampshire. Do you think Clinical Education counts towards clinical hours? I highlighted where I discuss my job so no need to read through the whole thing. Dear (SCHOOL), My professional goal is to pursue a career as a surgical physician assistant and I am most interested in your program at Tufts. My request of you is to consider my current work as f
