Hi! I was wondering if I could get some advice as well. This is my second time applying, last year I did not get any interviews and I applied to 6 schools. I just graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign-- my major was Kinesiology. Last year I applied with a 3.3 overall and a 3.0 science, but I got a D in biochem last fall and I didn't have many credit hours left to take, so my current is a 3.1/2.8. I am in the process of retaking biochem now, and taking some more sciences classes to improve my GPA. Here are the rest of my stats.
500 Hours as a home-health aide to students with physical disabilities at the University of Illinois
950 Hours as a rehab/physical therapy technician
350 Hours as a student athletic trainer
A week abroad in Port-au-Prince, Haiti on a medical relief trip
50 hours of health care surveying in underserved communities/University of Illinois
50 hours working as an OR Delivery Clerk at a hospital in Champaign, IL
125 hours of PA shadowing
10 hours of Surgical shadowing
GRE: 306 (157 Quant, 149 Verbal, 3.5 Writing)
Vice President of the University of Illinois Pre-Physician Assistant Club 2012-2013
Alpha Sigma Nu Kinesiology Honors Society Member
I am worried that my grades will completely ruin any chance I have of getting an interview at one of the ten schools I applied to this cycle. If there is any insight you could provide me with or if you could PM me I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks so much!
