Hi! I’m sorry to hear that you weren’t able to get an interview this cycle, I read your comments in this posting and you seem like someone who I would’ve loved to be a classmate with!
This was my first time applying to PA school, so I can’t tell you much about re-applying but I just wanted to put in my two cents about the last parts of your post because I am ROOTING for you and I want you to get into PA school.
try as much as you can to improve your application, even if it looks perfect to you now, it should not a year from now. For example, your experiences should be new, and the list should grow. I wouldn’t recommend “copying and pasting”. Work on your grades (take a class you’ve never taken before, or re-take a class you didn’t do so well in), shadow more PAs, get more PCE and HCE experiences, and volunteer (I tutored little kids in the Polish Language Arts). Make yourself a brand new applicant that they HAVENT seen before, so I personally wouldn’t copy and paste everything, maybe some parts. Definitely not the personal statement and not the LORs.
also, don’t give up, I know someone who tried 8 years to get into PA school, talk about dedication and dream catching! It doesn’t mean 1) you did anything wrong, 2) anything was wrong with your application, 3) you aren’t good enough. It just means some get luckier and chosen to chase their dreams before others.
also are you applying to schools that fit YOU and that you fit THEM? Don’t just apply to apply - I wouldn’t apply to just 3 schools and I also wouldn’t apply to 25! I would apply to maybe ehhhh 13ish to be safe that’s what I did.
Good luck, although I know you’ll be an amazing PA in the future!
