  1. Just wondering if anyone has heard back from them yet?
  2. Straight up rejected. Sigh... Best of luck to everyone here!
  3. Hi everyone, I was sitting here thinking about whether or not I should write a completely new personal statement or if would be alright if I used parts of previous personal statements before? I ask this because, really, the core of why I want to be a PA has not changed. I have for sure done a lot more to improve my application (retook a many prerequisite courses and improved my GPA, gained tons more healthcare experience in community health and the underserved, volunteer experience at my local children's hospital, and improved my GRE scores). Would this moreso be weaving that additiona
  4. As it stands now, I don't know if I have a reason that I would exclude it, honestly.
  5. In gaining more shadowing experience this year, I had it set up through a friend's husband (an MD) who said he had a friend who was a PA that I could shadow...only on my first night of shadowing I walk in and come to find that he's actually and NP (my friend's husband apparently got confused about which he was). I did continue to shadow him regardless and occasionally even shadowed his co-workers during the shift, who happened to be PAs themselves. Would the fact that the majority of that time that I spent shadowing an NP look bad to schools I apply to? All I know is that the entire team of th
  6. @paadmissions: Hi again. So I posted not too long ago and had a related question about something I had previously asked. Here was my previous statement/dilemna: "In gaining more shadowing experience this year, I had it set up through a friend's husband (an MD) who said he had a friend who was a PA that I could shadow...only on my first night of shadowing I walk in and come to find that he's actually and NP.

  7. @paadmissions: THANK YOU SO MUCH for answering all of my questions! Yes, I think more course of action will be dependent on what schools say when I call them. I've already talked to 2 or 3 that had said that I really need to weigh the factors of time and money.
  8. @paadmissions: thank you so much for your response! I will make sure that I convey those points in my PS. I guess while I'm at it, I have 2 other questions: 1.

  9. First of all, thank you taking the time to answer all our questions. It's great to hear from someone on a committee. I'm a re-applicant and I've been having trouble with writing a personal statement. My situation is that I want to still use some of the same things I said in my personal statement the first time I applied because some of those things haven't changed (ex. first exposure to the profession, explanation/what I've taken away from all my patient care experience I've had in prior years, briefly touching on poor grades early on in school, but getting better). Is it not so good to us
  10. Thanks for this, Craigk. It helps a lot - I'll focus more on what I've improved on in the past year. I did contact many of the schools I'd applied to last year and most said they couldn't disclose any specific information/reopen my file to let me know how my application was reviewed. Those same schools said they would send me a letter stating general reasons why I may not have gotten in. I wish I knew more specifically what they thought was the weakest parts of my application, but I also have a pretty good idea of what might have been lacking... Congrats on graduating soon, btw! :)
  11. Hi all, I'm really stuck on not wanting to completely scrap my last year's PS. The thing is, my original personal statement states all the influences and reasons/drive/motivation to become a PA. I mean, that innate drive shouldn't change in a year, right? So does that mean I should rewrite this part of my PS? Thanks in advance! :)
