  1. @paadmissions - you were so helpful last time I thought I'd ask you one more question. I love this thread and can't thank you enough for being so generous with your time! My undergrad is in psych and it was a lousy gpa. So in attempt to show adcoms I can do this, I'm going above the necessary pre reqs. Which of the following would you like to see on a transcript? I will already have pathophysiology, bio of cancer, microbiology, biochemistry, genetics, and pharmacogy but I want to add more. Thank you for your input!! -physiology of cardiac and respiratory -virology -parasitology -HIV/AIDS - health policy in the US -hematology -cell biology (this was one I was thinking of skipping) -principles of epidemiology -immunology
  2. Hi Paadmissions, How do schools verify HCE hours? Is it done w/ the background check? I want to put down some work I did a couple years ago however I can't remember the dates (give or take by a month). Also do you think a B- in A&P2 should be repeated or is it acceptable? (other pre-req's are B+/A-) Thanks so much for your time! This is a great thread!
  3. Bump.. Anyone have any suggestions for an online -inexpensive: cell biology? embryology immunology ( I've heard not so great things about UC Berkley's) pharmacology (I'm thinking of doing UND if you have any feedback about that) epidemiology biochemistry (other then UNE - too expensive) ...or any other upper level science you took and loved. Also any feedback Bout any of the uc Berkeley online classes? Thanks!

  5. @paadmissions thank you for helping us hopeful PAs! What do you advise me to do next? GPA: Undergrad GPA--horrible, I know (Psychology major) 2.55 cGPA (w/ post-bac: BIO 1 +2, GEN CHEM 1, A&P 1 +2 and Medical Terminology) 2.70 CERTIFICATIONS: Phlebotomy EKG BLS VOLUNTEER: ER volunteer: 200 hours Pediatric volunteer: 25 hours Simulation actor: 8 hours Habitat for Humanity: Freshman year American Red Cross Disaster and Relief Medical Mission trip to Mexico + some others... SHADOWING: 100+ hours shadowing PAs, MDs, NPs WORK EXPERIENCE: 360 hours: Phlebotomist 1320 hours-to date: Scribe/ medical assistant urgent care (responsibilities include: triage, vitals, taking symptoms, strep testing, collecting and testing urine samples, recording doctors physical findings, blood draw, EKG, INR, glucose testing, would care, splinting, and more) Should I take science classes to raise my gpa to a 3.0? Or apply for a masters program and if so in what? I have been told that even if my masters gpa is strong, I still wouldn't be allowed to apply to those schools with a 3.0 gpa cutoff. I want to take classes like pharmacology, embryology, cell biology, immunology... Etc. Any advice you have would be much appreciated!
  6. I realize this has probably been posted before but if so, I can't find it. Has anyone taken Organic Chemistry 1 w/ University of New England? The 60% of your grade being a cumulative final is a little scary sounding. Thoughts on this class??!
