  1. This semester made my Gpa into the lower 3 so I'm going to do everything I can to raise it Thank you ! All the best, M
  2. This helped me a lot thank you so much! All the best, M
  3. Thank you so much! I am planning on taking bio in the summer at a different school.
  4. So I just finished my second semester of my second year and it has been the hardest thing I have ever had to face. All throughout highschool and my first two years I have always gotten A's and B's in all my classes. However this semester, I got an F in BIO 100(which at my school is a course equivalent to a 300 level class at other schools so it was hard on its own) and a NC in chem(I'm retaking it this summer because my professor offered it to me and I know for a fact I can get an A in that class) and a C in calculus. Let's just say that this semester, life decided to bury me with everything that would ensure I could not focus on my studies. My parents were fighting DAILY and used me as their buffer/middle man and decided divorce was the answer (and a nasty one at that). Because my parents were too busy fighting, they forgot that they had 3 kids to look after but we're so caught up in what they were doing I ended up doing all the cooking/cleaning/shopping for the house. I had to take up a second job as well because I had to pay for things for my siblings and the house that I couldn't afford on just the one job. I had class three days a week from 7am-10pm which meant I wasn't home from 5am-midnight because I have a horrible commute. And I worked the other 4 days. (2 jobs) so I would get all my studying in during my little breaks at school and let's just say I didn't really sleep this semester. I obviously want to go into PA but I don't think I can now with how horrible my grades were this semester. My GPA is still above a 3 but it is no longer competitive. I'm really scared for my future because I cannot retake BIO 100 because I also pay for my own tuition and I can't afford to retake the class. I can only afford to move forward. I start orgo and lab in the fall and I'm excited bc I love orgo and I'm actually good at it. And a few other classes that go towards my human bio major that I'm not worried about. Despite what my grades show, sciences and maths have always been my strong suit and honestly, I'm not changing my career path. I know I'm a smart cookie, and that I can get an A in the rest of my classes as long as I think of myself for a bit. And Ik that's selfish but it's true.I had no choice but to be there for my family this semester and my grades suffered greatly for it. I know that is no excuse and it won't be for PA School but I don't know what to do now. I'm at a loss and I'm genuinely slipping into depression from all thats happened. I feel like I just ruined my future... Is there a shot at me still getting into PA School? I GENUINELY cannot see myself doing anything else. Maybe in the future I can retake BIO but for now I have to think of my possibilities for without retaking it. Any insight would be IMMENSELY appreciated. Thank you in advance All the best, Mariam
  5. Thanks for the reply! I'll definitely look into that! And as for my Arabic, my parents are Egyptian. And so is my Fiancé. My Arabic was incredibly choppy until a few years ago though because When my parents would talk with us in Arabic, we would just reply in English. But I started answering them more in Arabic and talking with my cousins almost everyday (who live in Egypt) and then when I met my boyfriend I perfected his English while he perfected my Arabic :) so I just took every opportunity that I could get to speak Arabic :)
  6. I really found myself in a frustrating position! Not sure what to do :/ Nonetheless, thank you for the reply! Best, M
  7. I'm actually fluent in Arabic and proficient in a few other languages as well. I know that my fiance might know A few doctors in Dubai but I don't know anyone here that relocated from UAE. Closest connection I'd have is a few people who are doctors in Egypt, however the system is completely different! Hopefully going there is temporary until we move back to the US when he can find a job here. Looking at the embassy's is something I will definitely look into! Thank you for the reply :)
  8. Hi all :) I'm currently about to attend PA School and the excitement I have is beyond words. However I have a bit of a problem I was hoping someone could help me with as it seems I can't find a concrete answer anywhere online. I live in the US and am a US citizen (have been all my life) however once I finish PA School, I will be moving to Dubai because that is where my Fiancé lives and works. It would be extremely difficult for him to come here and find a job, but over there he is doing very well. I was just wondering if anyone knew about the certified physician assistant job market in Dubai. Will I be able to find a job? Will I be getting a decent salary? (I'm aware it won't be as much as if I had experience.) Any information that anyone might have that relates to this would be DEEPLY appreciated Thank you so much in advance, Best, Mariam
