  1. I know that Medex does not have a required GPA for their BCHS program, but do they still look at your overall GPA during the application process. My reason for asking is that my current overall GPA is on the low side of 2.8 (my last 60 hours I have a 3.5 GPA). But I have extensive HCE, about 22000 hours, as a CNA, EMT, EMT-I, and paramedic mostly in a busy trauma center or a busy 911 EMS service. I am going to take upper level Human Anatomy and Human Physiology (although still undergrad class) since it has been over 7 years since A&P. I am taking the upper level because I feel it will show how I have improved in my maturity and study habits since A&P. I had to retake A&P d/t poor grades and lack of concentration on my part in my first years out of high school. Other than that I have every other requirement for Medex BCHS program. Do I need to retake classes to improve my GPA or as long as my last 60 hours of a GPA of 3.5 ok? Thank you for your help.
  2. I don't know the cost but UTMB has started an online master completion program. http://shp.utmb.edu/pas/Prospective_Students/DE_Masters.pdf
  3. I have searched online and on this forum but, I can't find any information on when the change is to take place. I may not be searching the correct phrases. Hopefully you guys can point me in the right direction. Also I have read that if a school has a bachelor and masters degree that the bachelor degree will still be available. Thanks for any info.
  4. In the downloads Section under pre-PA there is a list of pa schools and there is a column that shows what degrees they offer.
  5. Yes but I do not have a bachelor degree and only Texas tech and uthscsa do not require a bachelor degree and uthscsa will start requiring them in 2013. I can't start school until my wife is done with hers. Plus I really like what I have read about the Medex program.
  6. Thanks for the info. And I agree I wasn't counting myself out just curious

  8. How many MEDEX students are not from WWAMI-Nevada area. I looking to apply within the next couple of years and I'm from Texas. BCHS program.

  10. I am sorry I meant to post this in the PrePA section. If a moderator could move it I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
  11. I have search online and used the list of schools provided in the download section (very helpful Thanks to whoever posted it), but I am curious as to how you guys would rank the BS degree programs for PA studies. Thanks for your input.
  12. The UW/MEDEX program would be an excellent program for me if it was in texas. I live here and have a family here, so I really want to get into a program that's close to me and UTSASC and Utmb are the closest programs. I really wish I had figured out that PA was the direction I wanted to go before I bought a House. It would've made finding a school that fits me a lot easier. But thanks for the info.
  13. Thanks for the reply. I do have over 16000 hours of HCE that range from a CNA to a Paramedic. But I am the major income in the house and am trying to determine if I should apply to these after I get the pre-reqs finished or continue on to get a BS/BA then be able to apply to more schools. I may end up having to wait until my wife is done with school first though. But anyway thanks again for the reply.
  14. The program at both Texas Tech and UTHSCSA appear to not require a BS/BA degree to apply to the program. Do the majority of applicants still have a BS/BA degree when they apply to these schools and if I applied without a degree but met all their pre-reqs would I have less of a chance to get in over someone who had a degree. I do have an AAS in EMS, but no BS/BA. Thanks for all the advice in advance and I love this site so glad I found it.
