I am new here, but I am also feeling a bit unsure as to whether or not I am a good applicant for PA programs. @aking129, you sound like a great applicant and I wish I had some of your qualifications!
I just finished my junior year and will be going into my senior year during the Fall. I have a 4.0 major GPA (Biology) and 3.96 overall GPA, 50+ hours shadowing a PA, 100+ volunteer hours, and scored above the 60th percentile on all sections of my GRE. In addition, I am the President of my universities Honors College/very involved other places on campus. However, I only have about 800 hours of patient care experience (I am a medical technician at a nursing home). With that being said, some of the schools I want to apply to require a minimum of 1000 hours. I will have these hours easily done by the end of the summer, but I am not sure how to let PA programs know that. Any ideas on what I should do? I have looked others places on this forum, but I am having trouble finding an answer. I plan on submitting my CASPA by 6/20.
Schools: I am planning on applying to DeSales, Arcadia, Chatham, and Yale (as well as a few others).
