  1. Hey all. Maybe I'm on here because I'm in search of support through this specific community, but I am also genuinely curious. I do have other "mom friends" but they are not on the same path as me. I gave birth to my little guy January 2020 right before sh*t hit the fan. Since then, besides the common postpartum effects that vary with everyone, I have been trying to keep my head afloat with my pre-reqs, personal statement, application, and overall motivation. For this semester, I am BURNT OUT. Though applying is on the horizon, I am lacking motivation and willpower to finish strong. I want
  2. Hey everyone and anyone, So i'm looking to apply the next cycle and have calculated my overall GPA various ways - through calculators found on this forum, through calculators given to me from mentors, and through CASPA.I also calculated it in regards to my last 60 units. Anyways, I just recently paid of a service to get an assessment done to see if I'm a qualified candidate and they calculated my overall GPA and I guess I initially didn't account for grades for classes I retook (due to bad grades) and it dropped my overall GPA from what I thought was a 3.2 to a 2.97!!!!!! I am beyond disc
  3. Hi everyone, Been working on preparing my application for the past 6 months now but I've been feeling average lately with my scores and experience. I would appreciate any input or advice you all might have for me.

  4. thank you guys! so needless to say, HCE is incorporated with PCE most of the time when the school reviews it?
  5. Hi everyone! I just needed help on how to differentiate between PCE and HCE due to my personal experience. I went on CASPA's help page and found this: PCE: Experiences in which you are directly responsible for a patient's care. For example, prescribing medication, performing procedures, directing a course of treatment, designing a treatment regimen, actively working on patients as a nurse, paramedic, EMT, CNA, phlebotomist, physical therapist, dental hygienist, etc. HCE: Both paid and unpaid work in a health or health-related field where you are not directly responsible for a patient
  6. Thank you! Woud you say any and all appropriate science courses would be calculated? (everything you mentioned + neuroscience, pharmacology, pathophysiology, anatomy of speech mechanisms, etc.?)
  7. Hi everyone, is there such thing as a pre-pre PA? lol jk I'm just curious how everyone is calculating their overall science GPA (sGPA). The reason I am asking is because the variety of program requirements that I have looked at all require different science pre-reqs, so when I am seeing people write their stats in, I'm just curious how its all amounting up when every program is different. Thank you in advance for any and all input!
