  4. Hello everyone, Back in 2015 I had asked about low GPA hopefuls and everyone gave me great advice. I am here again asking you all what you think about my current application for the upcoming cycle. Currently, I am in a Masters of Surgical Assistant program at Eastern Virginia Medical school holding a graduate GPA of 3.84. Our program is 22 months long, we take our Anatomy, physiology, microbiology, pharmacology with the medical and PA students, and we have 12 months of clinicals of first surgical assisting at local hospitals around the Hampton Roads, VA, including Orthopedics, Plasti
  5. I just spoke to Mike Delgato, he stated that the program received 5900+ applications for the 26 spots. That they have narrowed it down to 2000 applicants and interviewing 150. He also stated that the program will start in the fall, and we should all know by early June. The last of interviews will be going out in early May. I asked about my application specifically and he said he is at no disclosure to tell me anything. He told me he receives over 40 emails per day regarding applications, so it seems like a chaotic mess. He said the application portal re-opens June 1st on CASPA.
  6. Thank you, I will get on that right now. I appreciate your response.

(all requiring experience, a bachelors of science wouldn't help) I ended up meeting someone at a restaurant who happened to be the president of a hospital (I told him my story), it is how I got my foot in the door. That is when I realized without knowing someone and having the connections you need, you cannot get any
