  1. Good luck and get ready for what will seem like the longest wait of your life. But it is so worth it!!!
  2. You sound like you are on the right track. Try and get your cumulative GPA and science GPA to at least a 3.5 before you apply. Also make sure you get involved with the local community. Nova is very proud of their students impact on volunteering and I know it couldn't hurt to do more than the average hours of community service. Also, make sure you don't just take the minimum amount of hours required to be considered a full time student (12) as a undergrad. Challenge yourself and take 18 credits or even 20 granite you aren't working and it will speak volumes to how well you will be able to handle the intense work load in PA school. Hope this helps. Also, I realize there are plenty of other things you could be doing but these are just my suggestions. Feel free to message me:)

  4. Applied to 9 where I thought I was a good fit. Got accepted to 2, wait listed at another, and turned down interviews to 2 other schools. Rejected from 4.
  5. To be honest I could not finish reading your personal statement because it was too boring. Everyone writes about how there family member has been stricken with cancer. Mine was too however I chose not to write about that. Yes that introduced you into the profession but why else do u want to be a PA?
  6. I agree with the previous posts. I would retake gen chem 2. While it won't help you too much with organic it will make you a better applicant. You have to remember that over 180k people applied to caspa schools this year. Of those around 18k were selected for interviews and a little more than 5k were Accepted. You want to show the schools that you are dedicated to becoming a PA by retaking classes

  8. I was on the wait list and decided to go elsewhere. I know they have to at least be offering the fifth person on the waiting list a spot as of 3 weeks ago.
  9. For those wait listed like me does anyone know when the committee will meet to review the applicants for the available seats left?
  10. Have your parents or someone else that is close to you help you write it. Parents love bragging about their children!!
  11. Since you are so young I would recommend that you shadow a PA and make sure this is in fact the route you want to go! Ask your parents family physician if you could shadow the PA there. Why do you want to be a PA?
  12. I made the exact same scores as you and I was accepted to two schools and wait listed at one! I did graduate with a 3.64 cum GPA and a 3.58 science though so that might of help my case. One thing I would tell you is to apply to programs that don't require the gre if that is your main concern.
  13. There are different scholarships you can apply for. One is a two year scholarship and the other is a one year. Many people apply for the year scholarship if they don't in fact get awarded the 2 year .
