  1. I think I figured that out to.
  2. So I ran into a hiccup. I am now adding my quarter hours and grades into the calculator, but I don't see quality points anywhere on my transcripts, how would I find out the amount of quality points for each class based off of grade and credit hours. Thank you
  3. Never mind, I figured it out just by looking at the document. Ding dong!
  4. Hello, I was wondering how I would go about adding quarter credits and grades into my B.A. semester credits using the GPA DOC John provided. Thank you.

    In search of a PA to shadow (Olympia,WA)

    Wow! That is very far, I had never heard of Anacortes until now. I appreciate the helping hand but I was hoping for something not past Seattle. Thank you again JMJ11!
  6. Good afternoon! My Name is Ronnie and I am looking for a generous PA to let me shadow them. A little about myself: - Male 30yrs old, medically retired from the Marine Corps (Infantry), I work as a Dental assistant. I will be starting my pre reqs in the summer. I greatly appreciate your time!

    Need advice, like everyone else.

    Are you serious? LOL! I wish it was that simple. I am a Blue Belt under Robert Owens (BJJ Olympia,WA). Lineage is: Rickson Gracie- Marcelo Alonso- Robert owens. I'm guessing you roll? Any way, I start my pre-reqs in the a month, hoping to get my GPA where it needs to be by next summer. Peace.

    I appreciate the feedback, I spoke to a academic adviser at my former school and my cumulative from both my B.A. and A.A.S. was 2.6 gpa. I plan on taking my pre reqs while obtaining more HCE & PCE hours along with shadowing. I know I have a great story, I am showing upwards trends in grades and GPA. If I do great in my pre reqs and I have all my other bases covered (LOR, HCE, etc) then I will still apply with a 2.8 -2.9, I know about rejection, I will just be persistent.
  9. Greetings, my name is Ron (30 yrs old) and I am an aspiring PA. I'll give you a little background about myself: I got medically retired from the Marine Corps in 2012 (5 years of service) and went straight into college (Brandman University.) I acquired a B.A. in Organizational Leadership with a 2.5 GPA, I had no direction, was in a dark place and didn't know what I wanted to do in life. After trying to land a HR career, I decided that I needed something at that moment to allow me to earn some income, so I went to my local community college and obtained a A.A.S. in Dental Assisting (graduated Aug 2017), I received a 2.8 GPA in that degree. Half way through the year long program I came to the realization that I really disliked the Dental field besides the interpersonal relations I had with patients, which I absolutely loved. I have around 600 hours of PCE & HCE. Around June 2017 I found out about what a PA is, I had a nasty MRSA infection on my hand from Brazilian Jiujitsu for which a PA treated me (wasn't the best but he was practicing medicine.) When I got better I looked into the profession and was mesmerized for some reason, its the only thing that I obsess about besides Jiu Jitsu. I am planning on taking my pre reqs in the summer at my community college. The problem is my GPA's for both degrees, it really brings me down and I wish I could redo everything again, but I reaped what I sowed. I am determined to reap good fruit from my persistence. What should I do to raise my GPA? If I got let's say a 3.5 or 4.0 in my science pre reqs, would that be sufficient for a cumulative on CASPA? Please lead me to water, I'm a horse thirsting for knowledge. Thank you for your time.
