I am so sorry to hear that you have been discouraged about this process. This is my second year applying, but last year I wasn't even eligible and got rejection letters immediately. I realized that the PA programs weren't easy last year and it's highly competitive, so I got a full time job for Direct Patient Care hours and retook 3 classes to boost my C's to A's to improve my GPA. My science GPA is still yucky at 3.14, but my overall is a 3.86. I'm hoping that everything else will look strong so that won't be too much of an issue, but who knows! My advice to you would be to speak to someone over the program because they will usually be very honest with you and be able to give helpful advice that is honest and focused on you. Good luck!
