  1. Hello! I’m currently a senior biology major working as a medical scribe for a bit over 1 year now. I have accumulated about 1100 hours so far and have a cGPA of 3.63 and a science GPA of 3.36.

  5. Hello. I am currently a junior undergraduate biology major and am planning to apply to schools for PA within the next year and have a few questions. I have a cumulative gpa of 3.68 and a science gpa of 3.26 as of now which I know is not very competitive but I was wondering what I could do to improve my chances of getting in. Currently I am working as a medical scribe for a rheumatologist and have previously done so for a PCP and have about 500 hours of experience all together doing so.
