  1. Usually "strongly recommended" is academic-speak for "soft requirement," meaning that it is possible to get accepted without it but that is for very extreme applicants.
  2. Thanks for the reply, Dizzy. To be honest, I didn't even think about working PRN while in PA school (of course I would have to go to PA school in an AA state in order to do that).

I ended up subsequently filing for a chapter 13 bankruptcy and have been paying on it for about a year now. I was offered a seat at a program and applied for Grad PLUS. To my shock, I was approved on the spot without even having to appeal. I checked my Equifax prior to the application and both the repo and the chapter 13 was on the credit report (the repo account was listed in the chapter 13). My question is, assumin
