  1. Thanks for the input!! The reviews on Amazon also say that its helpful, so I'm debating just buying it. Don't want to stress about if I should have got it or not!
  2. Hi everyone! Since it's time to start thinking about interviews, has anyone purchased any of the interview prep books that you can buy from Amazon or Barnes & Noble? I was wondering if these books were worth the $$/helpful, or if they're mostly just tips you can read online for free. Specifically, "How to 'Ace' the Physician Assistant School Interview" by Rodican- anyone tried it? Thanks guys
  3. Its just if a program requests it! They should tell you in their pre-reqs or program materials on CASPA.
  4. Hi everyone, I'm working through program materials on CASPA and wasn't sure how to format my documents with course catalog descriptions. Does something like this look okay to submit? Thanks Course Catalog Descriptions.pdf
  5. Thank you!! I'll do that:)
  6. Hi everyone! Sorry if this question is a bit confusing but ETS support hasn't been any help... I sent my GRE scores to all of the programs I'm applying to (total of 15) last week on the day that CASPA opened. Under the application status tab, it says "Received 12" next to standardized tests, so 3 of the schools I'm applying to haven't received my GRE scores. Those 3 are the only schools I'm applying to that don't have a CASPA-specific GRE code, so will they not show up as received under the status tab? I just don't know how to make sure that those 3 schools have actually received my scores. Thanks for any insight
  7. Check with the volunteer services departments at local hospitals/clinics. This is how I got the bulk of my shadowing hours! Many larger hospitals actually have programs designed for pre-PA students that help you get the required # of hours for your application. Good luck
  8. It's only ~3000 characters right now; I'm working on increasing the length significantly. Thank you for the input!! Thank you so much for taking the time to do that! Re-reading this rough draft already has me making a lot of changes. Definitely going to work on the hows/whys of this PS. Thank you!
  9. Hi everyone, Here is my most recent draft of my PS. I'm a first time applicant applying this cycle and looking for as much help as possible with editing my PS! Any suggestions are welcome Personal statement rough draft 4_20.docx
  10. I hope its okay if I send you a very rough draft of my PS! Congrats on your acceptance
  11. I'm currently completing my gap year and I'm an STNA (nursing assistant; depending on the state might be called CNA, PCNA, PCA, etc). I took an accelerated class and was certified within a month, testing and all. I found a job fairly easily too (a lot of hospitals are always hiring CNAs; nursing homes and rehab facilities are other places you should check). I work full time in a skilled nursing facility and even though I've only been there for ~ 6 months, I've gained a TON of valuable HCE
  12. Thanks for the advice! Definitely going to be applying earlier rather than later based on what everyone here has told me
