  1. Of the five schools I applied to, JUST tuition and fees were: $64k, $88k, $90k, $120k, $142k.
  2. If y'all are still looking, message me if you want! The clinic I work at (locations in Phoenix and Tempe) takes students and I can give you a contact name/email.
  3. I can only speak to my experience and I chose to lean on the side of adding every relevant course. I think 2 is totally acceptable, maybe 3. In the case that you have more than that, I'd say the most advanced or most relevant. But it is hard to know how/if/what affect that had on my application in the end (yes, was accepted to 4/5 schools applied). I don't think coursework ever came up in interviews, let alone these kinds of logistics. I think it's more of a, "do you meet the requirement or not."
  4. I don't have much to add in regards to EMT or not but... I'm a west coast gal through and through and only applied to schools in the west besides one, "reach," school. So if you have any specific questions there, feel free to shoot a message my way or if you find yourself in AZ visiting schools or for an interview I'd be happy to help guide!
  5. Not to stir the pot but I agree with OP that it could be PART of a rejection. I know a number of schools here in the west that explicitly state they give preference to in-state applicants. Also, I applied to a school in New Mexico who didn't explicitly state such, but after I was rejected they told me that they only accepted five out of state students that cycle.
  6. I'd recommend starting this in the PA schools section. You'll get more traffic there.
  7. Hi - congrats on all the work you've put in so far and for exploring a new chapter in your life. Excited for you! Overall GPA and science GPA are very important in CASPA, and generally to adcoms, though some schools weigh it more heavily than others. You can read on the CASPA website about how exactly they calculate each GPA; I'd recommend this, since yours isn't super straightforward (with the three different schools, two degrees, etc). I'd also recommend starting a running list of schools you are interested in applying to and researching exactly what their pre-reqs are and how important GPA is to them. Generally, schools don't really care where/how advanced the pre-req course is as long as you get it done. University courses are not considered superior to community college classes nor is a post-bacc unless that's something you want to do for other reasons. I think it kind of depends on how many pre-reqs you still need to do or redo. If it's just a handful I'd say take em at a CC. If it's a lot, I personally would like to have some sort of additional degree/certificate to show for it, but that's me
  8. They just sent out an email this morning asking everyone if they are still intending to matriculate, as they are starting to prepare for orientation. I withdrew my application, as I will be attending elsewhere. Hope someone else gets a happy call today
  9. If you dig a little in this Pre-PA thread, you'll find a few people who have offered. I'd also be willing to look at it. Wouldn't say I'm super qualified but was accepted to 4/5 this cycle. I'll PM you my email
  10. There's a webinar today for anyone interested. Starts at 1p ET! https://nhsc.hrsa.gov/scholarships/how-to-apply.html
  11. Agreed - I think you already know in your heart what you want to do, but as someone who desperately wanted to get in right after school but ended up taking two, "gap years," this pains me a little bit. Then again, you've earned your GPA and PCE, and deserve to take care of your mental/emotional/physical/spiritual self. Theoretically, your application will only get better so maybe it could even be an opportunity to expand your horizons, apply to more schools, and give yourself more options down the road.
  12. I don't mean to sound dramatic but have you thought about therapy? If you have the means/resources, I highly recommend it for anyone. My therapist has taught me some techniques to combat that critical "inner voice," that have really helped. Might be best to have these tools before school starts.
  13. This is very kind of you! And congratulations on your acceptance and impressive scores
