    CASPA Transcripts

    CASPA requires that you send all your transcripts - its not just an option - you will get your app sent back to you if you don't.

    Fired from my tech job

    I agree with UGoLong, something doesn't sound right here, and looping in the work comp issue really makes this sound worse, and not in the way that reflects well on you. Doing a quick look at your other posts, you also have a thread on DUI charges with some excuses there about how that was handled, placing the blame on the authorities, and some poor academic history you had to overcome. This is not for me to judge, but putting myself in the shoes of an ADCOM, there seems to be a pattern of problems that you are likely going to have to explain. As he mentioned, your life is not ruined, but how you acknowledge these events and move forward will make a difference in how these reflect on you.

    GRE official

    ^ Correct On the school's end, what they see is that you have "GRE Scores" meaning the ones you self-report on your app, and "GRE Official Scores" which are the ones that CASPA receives from the GRE/ETS, which is probably why you're confused - your schools are looking at different language/labeling than you are. On your end, you just see that they have been received from GRE/ETS or not.

    General Chemistry requirement!! HELP!!

    Not all programs will accept the sampler course - gen/orgo/biochem combo. Check with the programs you're applying to, but that may not be sufficient.

    High School Dual Enrollment Courses + Retook a Course

    1) The pre-college stuff would be considered "freshman" even though you had not started school yet, as its considered freshman credits once you do start college. 2) You'd list all attempts at the class and the grade you got.

    Military credit: corps school for medical terminology

    CASPA probably won't take it if its just ACE (American Council on Education) credit as those aren't really credits but credit reccomendations, similar to getting a 4 on a AP exam. ACE is saying, "if a college is willing to give you credits for this, we advise they give you 3 credits." If one of your schools actually gave you the credit for that recommendation and its on that school's transcript, CASPA should take it as college credit from that school.

    Updating CASPA after verification

    There are some schools that flat-out won't look at updates. I can't think of which ones off the top of my head but they're pretty up front about it that they don't. You'll just have to check with the schools. As for notifying them, I'd ask them how they want to be notified as part of your "do you take updates" inquiry. CASPA technically tells them, but they do so in a stream of hundreds of other notifications the schools get and how many admins actually look at those notifications is very likely nobody. Some schools who allow updates up until X date go actively looking for them, but others you'd probably want to let them know.

    Developmental Biology not a science?

    There is a lot of overlap with all courses, but at the end of the day, realize CASPA doesn't pick - they're just the application. They're sorting it the way the schools are telling them to, so its probably because the PA programs don't view it to be as valuable as other science courses.

    Some will also do a pre-req GPA based on their school's pre-req requirements.

    CASPA for next cycle

    ^not true about transcripts. Your essay will not carry over though. Def read their FAQ.
  11. ^ This. You'll also need to provide CASPA the transcript from the affiliated college, not the HS transcript.

    How to calculate science gpa?

    Find your quality points for each class, which is semester credits x numeric value of your grade. So say you get a B (3.0) x 3 semester hours = 9 quality points for the class. Add up your total quality points, and divide by total credits. EX: 100 QP/30 credits = 3.33 GPA

    CASPA Transcripts

    Do it yourself, it takes a little time but its faster than asking CASPA to do it. You won't have any GPAs until after CASPA verifies your app. You may want to review their help center for how that timeline works.

    Not Going According To Plan

    Note that you don't even go into line for transcript entry until you submit to at least one school. If you are sitting on that, that's the problem. Verification rarely takes 4 weeks - its more like 1-2 as long as you don't get it sent back to you - so I wouldn't worry about that, but if you haven't submitted get on that ASAP!

    Will this effect my application?

    Eh, hard to say. I wouldn't call it a HUGE mistake, but schools that specifically instructed you NOT to do that might see it as an inability to follow directions. Honestly, you wouldn't be the first one to do that; I don't think it is going to tank an otherwise strong app. However, in general, unless schools specifically ask you to list everything, you're not supposed to.
