  1. I do not plan on doing the snapshot. The med school application process has a platform called VITA that CASPer is trying to compete with, as far as anyone knows they havent even sent info to the programs about this product.
  2. I am sorry to hear you arent having luck with some of the schools you applied to, it may be time to expand your search. I did a quick search for pa school prereqs on Google and found several schools that either have no credit requirements and simply ask that you have completed the course and others that require only 4 quarter units. Good luck!
  3. I received an interview for Sept. 16th today as well! Good luck to all of the other applicants during the rest of the process.
  4. A majority of them do but you pay a premium with tuition. There is really no way around just looking through each programs website to find specifics. Good luck!
  5. I received a virtual interview for October 3rd as well. My application was under review on June 8th. I am very excited and wish you all the best of luck as we progress through this process.
  6. According to the schools website the following prereqs must be completed before the application is submitted. If not, your application will most likely be rejected. 12 Credit Hours of Chemistry w/Lab (Recommended sequence—Chemistry I, Chemistry II, Biochemistry) 9 Credit Hours of Biology to include Microbiology w/Lab (Recommended sequence Biology I, Biology II, Microbiology) 5 Credit Hours of Human Anatomy & Physiology w/Lab
  7. Both are correct and I dont think there is a wrong way. I mostly used IUPUI in reference to were I studied for undergrad but also in reference to physical locality (I was hoping that owning property and being established in the community would help get me into the program ;^). I referred to the name of the program as the IU PA program everywhere else.

  9. I was really hoping to get in on the first round of interviews. I cant wait to hear how it goes for everyone who was invited, good luck!
  10. Thanks! I have been working on this for the past 12 years slowly finishing my undergrad, prereqs, and raising a family. Good luck to you as well, its always nice seeing other high speed RT's advancing in their careers.
  11. I received an invitation to a virtual interview for Sept. 28th. This is my third cycle applying, the previous two I only applied to IU and did not get an interview. I really wish the interviews were in person but I hope to make the best of it, good luck!
  12. Does your employer have a human resource dept? You may be able to reach out to the person who currently holds the position as they should be able to verify your hours.

  14. You can make more through the VA for basic practice. I want to say that the only purpose for a PA doctorate if for administration or teaching. Some of the hospital administration for my network make 7 figure salaries but most make as much as a regular PA salary, the trade off being that you dont have to see patients. Its a good option for those who get into medicine but get burnt out after witnessing decades of disease and dying.
  15. Its a gutsy move only applying to one school. I was forced to do this for the past few years and the results were predictable. As to your questions the best we can do is look at the boards from the previous years. Last year interview invites went out in early October for interviews in early November, its going to be a long wait.
