  1. Here is a link to a google sheets that I have created to more easily access information on each of the schools in Florida and the requirement standards for acceptance or preference. All programs were retrieved from Stetson University website: https://www.stetson.edu/artsci/pre-health/physician-assistant.php , and all program details listed on the google sheet were obtained through each programs website URL in the Stetson link provided. I hope this can help anyone who finds it hard to look up this information and compare and contrast each of the programs, as it has for me. Note: The Prerequisite list does not always include if the lab is required. I have listed Hours next to some courses where permitted, and If the course required a lab I did not always list it, but instead just listed the hours included. Example: Microbiology is a 3hr course for me, So when I see that it is listed as 4hrs, I know that this means a Lab must be taken for that class. If anyone has any extra questions, Please do let me know, and I will try to answer. If I have left out anything or made any mistakes, Please let me know and I will fix them ASAP, but I feel that it is accurate at this point, with regards to all sections except the "Average acceptance GPA", as this information was harder for me to find.

  2. Without a doubt, only I can be the captain of my journey, but im glad to have the people who make my journey better and more positive along the way, as well as the ones that try to bring it down, as it only makes me stronger! I think that your advice sounds about in line with what my initial thoughts were. I am going to apply to a few other job positions as a CNA, as well as adding ER Tech to the pool. I have been hearing good things about this position, and really hope to transfer to it once I obtain a job. I believe that I am more than capable of getting to the 1000 hour mark, as long as I can get a job sooner than later, as well as work overtime over the summer, and push my boundaries to new levels. As for increasing my average closer to 3.4 in SGPA, I am currently in Biochemistry and Cell bio, and its been a pretty rocky road, currently I have a high B+ in biochem, and a low B in cell bio. I feel like most would expect the exact opposite, but the teachers and the test structure definitely are playing a role in my ability to do well in one over the other at this point. I really want the A for both, so hopefully with two more test and a final to replace one exam grade, I can boost my Cell bio grade, as well as Biochem. For my Spring 2021 semester, currently my schedule is as follows. Chemical Literature - CHM4060 Introduction to Medicinal Chemistry - CHM4292 Dev Health Professions Portfolio - IDS4930 Introductory Statistics 1 - STA 2023 Sports Nutrition - HUN 3272 I am going to bust my a** to my best ability to obtain all A's for next semester and for the remainder of this semester, so hopefully I can boost my GPA. Overall, I am hoping that when I do apply, that they will see the outstanding progress that I have made from my first two years, to my last two, in regards to my SGPA. Also, I have recently joined the PA Club at my school, and I have attended the first of many meetings that are held, where they bring on guest that are either in grad school, or currently practicing in the field. I will be more than happy to add this to my application!
  3. First and foremost, I hope that everyone is doing good and having a good year, despite the common drawback that we are all facing in this pandemic. Currently, I will be graduating in the spring with a degree in Biomedical Sciences. For a little background, I went to SCF community college for my first two and a half years of undergrad to obtain my AA, and Transferred to USF (Tampa) in the Fall of 2019, to finish my bachelor's degree. This is my first full year of finally realizing that PA school is my personal best option out of all the medical graduate programs. I have really been trying my best to account for all the things that I have missed out on, such as direct patient care hours, shadowing, due to not knowing I wanted to be a PA, and also due to foolish mistakes as an undergrad and young adult. Initially, I was considering applying in the Spring for PA school, but after thinking about a few things, I have a feeling that it will be unwise. So overall, I just want to see what you all think about my stats, as well as what you think about my reasoning for waiting until Fall of 2021 to apply, or even spring of 2022. Age - 23 GPA SCF GPA: 3.32 USF GPA: 3.7 Overall: 3.44 Science all applied: 3.26 USF science applied: 3.5 Clinical Experience: Certified Nurse Assistant Past History: 2019 Summer Job June-August (roughly 200 hours) Current: Jobless I have been trying to get a Job in Tampa for the past two months now with no luck, so I am hoping to have better luck in the coming weeks or months. Community volunteering: I am currently trying to gain hours through my church, and currently have minimal hours, so this should change very soon. GRE Test: In regards to the GRE, my current plan is to wait until the summer of 2021 to take the exam, so that I can better focus on my classes and getting the grades to boost my Science gpa up, and to also allow my full attention to getting the best score for the test on the first go. Thank you in advance for any criticism that is given whether positive or negative, it is all good and will better me and my position in life.
