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.
