  1. Hello PA Forum, I have the opportunity to take a pre-req over the summer at a CC while attending a 4 year university. I think this would be a good idea because it would be the only class I would be taking during this time so I could focus on it and get a high grade. Would PA schools put alot of importance on whether I took it over the summer at a CC or at my 4 year during fall or spring? Enrollment is coming very soon and I do not want to make a bad decision, especially for a pre-req.
  2. So based on your information, do you think this would be a start? Fall 2021: Gen psych, art, a chem class, and statistics? I think psych and art against chem and stats would keep the semester balanced with 2 harder classes and 2 easier classes. I understand that the best judge on what classes would suit me is myself, but I would like your opinion on this schedule in terms of getting requirements done.
  3. Hello PA Forum, I am new to the pre-PA path, and I am a bit overwhelmed by the things that need to get done over the next years. I am finishing up my freshman year and have decided that getting into PA school is my goal. After some research I have come to the understanding that I need to have prerequisite courses completed. However, I am very lost on where to start. Some schools require upper level this and lower level that. I dont want to waste any more time then I already have, given that I have been a CS major for my entire first year, so Im very worried about making the wrong choices for next semester. Here is a run down of the classes I've taken as a freshman CS student (I will switch out to another major). Keep in mind I have not taken introductory English courses because of AP college credit. 1st Sem: Bio 101, CPSC 120, POSC 100, Pre-Calculus 2nd Sem: Geology 101, CPSC 121, Calculus I, HCOM 100 What should I take this summer or in the fall? I would greatly appreciate some guidance. Registration is in a few weeks and I do not have too much time to make a decision on my fall classes. I was thinking of taking a more challenging course over the summer so I could focus on it by itself, and maybe take psychology next semester, but I feel like im missing something like chemistry or anatomy.
  4. I acknowledge that ultimately it was my own habits that led to that gpa, and have been working extra this semester to outperform that. The reason I wrote this post was to get re-assurance that my chances for PA were not doomed, or to be given a reality-check that I screwed myself over. I know im capable of doing great every semester from here on out, I just dont want this first semester to be my demise.
  5. Hello PA forum. After doing some soul searching, I decided on maybe going for PA school. I am only a 2nd semester freshman. However, due to many circumstances, such as adjusting to online school, and a 1 star professor, my first semester of college was a 2.5. I also was not planning on anything after undergrad so I wasn't totally motivated on acing everything. I am doing my best this semester to make up for that, and getting a 3.75 or 4 this semester is realistic at the moment since Ive bee working extra hard. I am very worried however that all of the hard work that will come in the next years will be for naught if my 2.5 first semester will weigh me down. I know I am capable of getting mostly As and Bs from here on out, but will my first semester be the bane of my PA school application? Will schools take into account covid college and and very bad professors who hardly knew how to operate education software? Will schools see the upward trend as a good thing? I also understand that my application will be looked at as a package rather than just GPA, so I have some hope, but this worry still lingers.
