  1. I think it's been about 8 years since I took my microbiology course. All other prerequisite courses were taken within the last 5 years. 3.7 GPA, haven't taken the GED yet and I work as a phlebotomist for PCE. I have one hospitalist PA that I've shadowed for about 3 hours so far. If I get a good score on the GED, get more shadowing hours in, keep on with my PCE hours, and send in an otherwise compelling application; would they possibly overlook that the microbiology course wasn't taken recently? Has anyone had something like this happen?
  2. @aceface Thanks for your reply! What positions are considered higher quality PCE?
  3. Planning to apply to Baylor, UT-San Antonio, and UTMB-Galveston by September. While I do not have direct patient care experience yet, I hope to be hired on for a position soon so I can put on the app that experience will be acquired before enrolled in PA school. I have two positions that I'm interviewing for next week: phlebotomist (3 months paid training included) or tissue recovery technician, which involves removing tissue from donors for transplantation. The hours for the technician position are ideal for my situation right now (nanny). Being a phlebotomist means I will have to drop everything I have going on. Will the technician position be considered novel in any way? Or even be considered direct patient care (this will be mostly with cadavers)? Or should I just go with the safe bet and throw away any semblance of a life I have before PA school?
