  2. Congratulations Ashley! If you would like, message me and I can add you to the PA class of 2022 Facebook group!
  3. Congratulations!! I just created a Facebook group for our incoming class so we all have a common place to get to know each other and communicate! Feel free to message me your email and I can add you and any other students to the group!
  4. I also received my acceptance yesterday! I cannot wait to meet my future classmates! Class of 2022!!
  5. Congratulations! I am hoping to get an interview invite in the near future too : )
  6. Hey! Does anyone know if they send out invites via phone or email?
  7. Does CASPA show you your CASPA GPA and BCP GPA once you submit it?
  8. Thank you so much! This was very helpful. I will definitely add it in there!
  9. Thank you for your input and reassurance. I believe I may wait on retaking the GRE, because I too believe it says little about how I will do in PA school.
  10. I was a head coach for a club volleyball team during my freshman year of college. Does this count as something that would fall under the leadership experience tab in CASPA? I was in charge of creating our practices, communicating with parents and players, organizing tournament travel, etc.
  11. I am having difficulty deciding whether or not I should retake the GRE or not. I am not a fan of these tests, nor do I like having to pay $200+ to take it so I need an honest opinion if you think I should retake it or not. 4 out of the 6 schools I am applying to require the GRE with no minimums, but their averages are around 300-306. The other 2 schools do not require it at all. 1 of those schools is the school I received my B.S. from, and they give preference to previous alumni (giving me a higher likeliness to get in there). I also just received my B.S. and will have 1 gap year at least between undergrad and PA school. GRE SCORE= 293 Quant: 148 Verbal: 145 Writing: 4.0 GPA Cumulative: 3.73 Science: 3.73 Experience Research: 90+ Biochemistry research with antioxidants. PCE: 600hrs (I was a CNA at a long-term care facility for 560 of those hours and now I am working full time as a Medical Assistant at a Primary Care office allowing me to gain 40+ hours a week of PCE, which I will add to my application). HCE= 2,300 hrs as a patient transporter in a hospital. Shadow= 90 hrs in 7 different fields of medicine. Volunteer= 42 hrs (soup kitchen, special olympics, american red cross blood drives, MAPA) LOR (4 total) 2 PA's I shadowed (both alumni of my alma mater's PA school and they are both still involved with their PA school), my previous patient transport supervisor, and my research professor. Memberships Pre-PA club MAPA (Michigan Academy of Physician Assistants) I am not sure if I am missing anything. Let me know if you want more information to help me make this decision. I would have to retake the test within the next couple of weeks so that I could submit my application mid-June. This would not give me much time to prepare for my retake. I also have only done a crash course of youtube videos and free Kaplan bootcamps to prepare for the GRE, and this was all before my previous attempt at the end of April 2018. I do not want to waste the time and money if you guys think I would still be competitive at the schools that require the GRE. Thanks for your input!
  12. Do we need to put every job we have ever had that isn't health care experience in the experience tab of caspa? If not, do we only put certain jobs under that tab? I figured they wouldn't provide it if they didn't want us to use it.. Thanks for your help!
