  1. I currently have a sGPA of 2.99; however, I am confident that I will get an A in the Chemistry class I am taking in the spring (which ends on June 9). This would raise my sGPA to about 3.09. Should I wait until I get my grade back from this class in order to have my application verified? I'd like to have it verified ASAP, but I know that CASPA will show my sGPA as a 2.99 to the schools if I have it verified before I get my Chemistry grade back.
  2. Hello! cGPA: 3.15 and sGPA: 3.08. (My sophomore/junior year, I was dealing with depression and other mental issues, which is unfortunately reflected on my grades). I retook a General Chemistry class that I got a C- in in my undergrad, and received an A. My graduate sGPA/cGPA is 3.78. my GRE scores: Verbal: 159, Quantitative: 167, Writing: 4.0 I have about 3000+ hours of direct patient care experience as an ophthalmic technician, and will be continuing to accrue. I have about 200+ volunteering hours from volunteering at a general hospital, from my undergrad., etc, and will also be continuing to accrue. I will also have a few PA shadowing hours by the time I apply (20+). I know my GPA is very low, but I am wondering if I should take a shot and apply this cycle, or if I should wait another year to accrue more HCE/volunteering/shadowing hours. Any advice and recommendations would be greatly appreciated! Thank you very much!
  3. Hi, I'm graduating a 4year university in June, and I'm thinking about getting a MA job or doing an MA program for a year and then working as an MA for a couple years before applying to PA school. I was wondering if being a back office MA at an eye surgery center be considered as HCE hours? Also, there's a couple of chemistry classes that I'd like to retake at a CC or a different school once I graduate to increase my GPA a boost; I was wondering if PA schools care where I retake those classes. Thank you to those who reply; I appreciate any feedback/suggestions!
  4. @jasonD thank you for the suggestion :) do you know if my MA grades would show up and If I do we'll in the classes, could that raise my gpa? @just Steve I'm lost trying to find a path on becoming a PA. I'm willing to put the time in effort. I don't just want a job to make good money or anything of the sort. I'm asking more of advice/feedback on my current plan/route to becoming a PA. Is the MA school and working as a MA a good Option? What can I be doing now to improve my application? What should I do about the classes I got Cs/C+s in? Feedback like that would be great. thanks to both of you for replying. I really do appreciate it.
  5. Hi everyone! I am currently a third year undergrad student with a 2.93 GPA. I am pretty sure I can raise it over a 3.0 by graduation, but I know it still is an extremely low GPA. My science GPA is even lower. I am planning to go to MA school after I graduate and work as a MA, while shadowing PAs. I was wondering if my MA school grades count towards the GPA that the admissions committee sees; could my MA grades raise my GPA/science GPA? Also, because my GPA is so low, should I retake classes or should I just apply after working as a MA when I feel that I am ready to apply? Or does anyone else suggest I do things differently. I am extremely lost and I would greatly appreciate any advice/suggestions. Thank you so much for your time :)
  6. Hi paadmissions, I am currently a 3rd year student with a 2.9 GPA with a major in Psychobiology. My science GPA is lower than that. I know that almost all PA schools require a 3.0 GPA, but I was wondering what the best way for me to improve my grades are after graduation. I am planning to attend Medical Assistant school and shadow PA's/volunteer and work as a MA for a year or two. Could my grades from MA school raise my GPA/science GPA that the PA schools check? Or should I be retaking classes. I am willing to put in the time and effort, but as of now, I am confused on what the way for me is to make myself as most competitive of an applicant I can be. Thank you so much for your time!
  7. I go to a 4 year university right now, and I'll 100% be able to complete my requisites for my major and graduate in 4 years. BUT I know there's a ton of classes I have to take for different PA schools, and I was wondering if I could take these classes (the classes that aren't required for my major but are required to apply to different PA schools) online or at a different school.
