  1. Hey everyone! Just looking for some advice/ input/ personal experience with applying to PA school. I graduated in May 2019 with a Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology with stats that were subpar at best. I’ve always known I wanted to be in medicine but struggled a lot with my science courses in undergrad. Since graduating I’ve retaken every single pre req (plus additional science classes) averaging about a 3.8 in my last 40 credits (still taking classes in Fall 2020 and Spring 2021.) I’m planning to apply in June 2021 and at that time I will have 60 PostBac credits. Im hopeful to continue with an upwards trend for the remainder of my classes which should give me the following stats by June 2021: cgpa: 3.2 sgpa:3.2 In terms of PCE/HCE/Shadowing hours: I’m an ER scribe with about 1000 hours, planning to take my NREMT this month (delayed due to COVID) and I will begin working as an EMT as soon as I get my certification. I have about 200 HCE as a PT Aide and about 250 PCE through a trip to Nicaragua with Global Medical Brigades. I’m hoping to have over 2000 hours by the time I apply. I work with many ED PA’s whom I have and plan to continue to shadow and I’ve shadowed and Oncology PA for about 20 hours. I have not taken my GRE yet but plan to take it in October. I’m mostly applying to schools who do more of a holistic admissions and consider a last 60 credit gpa along with some pre req grade replacement policy with hopes to emphasize my upwards trend in grades. What do you guys think about my stats?? Do any of you have experience applying as a low gpa non traditional student?? Do you guys have any tips for what I can improve? Tips for CASPA? Any advice/ input in general would be extremely helpful!! Thank you in advance!!
  2. haha, I will definitely give it my all; I do plan on committing to a lot more pce and hce, Thanks for your input!!
  3. Looking for some advice- I plan on applying the 2021 cycle but I’m a bit neurotic and really just need to plan out everything ahead of time. My cgpa and sgpa will both be around a 3.25 (currently taking post bacc classes) if I continue with an upwards trend. I should have around 2000-3000 PCE by the time I apply, I’m currently an ER scribe, volunteer EMT. I have about 30 PA shadowing hours but I work with a lot more pa’s in the ER now so I’ll be shadowing them; I've done some other pce work like PT aid, I also went on a medical mission trip to Nicaragua through Global Medical Brigades and worked in a community health clinic. Will also be taking the GRE soon. I guess I’m just very afraid of getting denied, idk if I should continue to take classes at cc and boost my gpa even more (super hard bc I messed up my first two years of college) or should I do a masters? My gpa is holding me back a lot, I am trying to shine in other aspects of my app but I’m a bit lost and I just know that I want to be a PA more than anything. Are there any specific schools any of you would recommend looking more into? Anything else I can do to better my chances/ app? If you have any insight please lmk!!
