  1. I am applying to a school that has an August 1st deadline, so I want to submit my application by July 1st to make sure it has time to clear. I have yet to take the GRE. I called CASPA and they said I am able to submit my application to the school but just insert the date and number of the verification code of the GRE I am signed up for. Has anyone submitted an application and had their GRE score uploaded during the clearing process?
  2. I am feeling unsure as to whether or not I will get into PA school. I have a bachelor's degree in Public Health Science. My cumulative gpa is a 3.92 and my science gpa is a 3.8 with 61 science course credits. I have 1,000 hours of patient contact currently from working as a physical therapy aide during undergrad. I am taking a gap year and working 36 hours per week as a medical assistant and also taking weekend shifts as a physical therapy aid to reach approximately 3,000 hours when I apply next year. I also have about 200 hours of other related experience through working as a medical receptio
  3. Hi everyone! This is my first post in this forum. So glad I found it! Anyways, I am currently applying to PA programs, and I have a question regarding my patient care experience. I work as a medical technician at a nursing home. Up until this point, I have about 800 hours. However, some of the schools I am applying to require 1000+ hours. I will easily get these hours done by the end of the summer. Should I put my "end date" on the CASPA as (ex) August 31st, 2019? That way, I can approximate the amount of hours I work a week to put myself over 1000 (and so the schools won't immedia
  4. Looking for advice/opinions from people with more knowledge and experience with CASPA. I took the GRE 5/25/19, 2 out of 3 recommendation letters are in. Basically, everything on CASPA is ready except GRE and the 1 letter. Do I go ahead and submit CASPA before I send them my GRE scores? Or wait until after?
  5. On the licenses and certifications section, CASPA acts for the issuing organization. I am not sure what would be the issuing organization for my CNA certification - would it be the school I attended for my certification or my state's department of health professions which lists online my license number...?
  6. Hello everyone, For those that have already submitted their application in the past few weeks, how long did it take for your application to be verified? I'm probably going to submit my application tomorrow. Thanks!
  7. Do we need to put every job we have ever had that isn't health care experience in the experience tab of caspa? If not, do we only put certain jobs under that tab? I figured they wouldn't provide it if they didn't want us to use it.. Thanks for your help!
  8. I was wondering which GPA schools use during the admissions process. Undergrad, my CASPA calculated cumulative is 2.21 (i know, i know...) im currently in a masters in biology for health professions program and after two semesters my GPA is 3.42. using the CASPA GPA calculator spreadsheet, my cumulative with undergrad and grad is 2.4. which means i have to pick the correct schools in terms of GPA requirements etc. My question is will schools use only the CASPA cGPA to see if you meet the GPA requirement listed for their program? Do they look at sGPA moreso than cGPA? Do they take into acc
  9. On CASPA, when you want to create an evaluation request by entering the first and last name, email address, due date, and personal message to your evaluator. If my college professor is going to be one of my evaluators, where should I add his Ph.D credentials? And also what is the personal message to evaluator used for?
  10. I am in the process of filling out my CASPA application and, under Program Materials for each program I am applying to, it asks me to assign the course from my transcript entry to each respective prerequisite. I am having trouble deciding which courses to assign in some cases. For example, for "Anatomy", I have the option to assign A&P I (in lieu of Anatomy, since I did not take that class) and for "Physiology", I have the option to assign A&P II. I have taken A&P I and A&P II, but I have ALSO taken actual Physiology (which was a more advanced class). For the programs requestin
  11. Hi Everyone, I am applying to PA schools this year. Here are some statistics about me 3.0-3.1 Science GPA 3.5 Cumulative GPA About 700 Volunteer Hours 60 Shadowing hours of PA (3 different specialities) 12 Hours of Shadowing a NP 2,500 Direct Patient Care Experience as a CNA 1st generation student (first to go to college) Honors student, along with being a peer mentor. How many schools do you think I should apply to? Sadly, my science GPA is low because I received a C+ in genetics, and a D in ochem, now retaking Ochem and more than likely
  12. Hi guys, I am currently an undergrad about to graduate in May with a bachelor of science in Neuroscience. I'm hoping to get some advice/insight on my application and stats. cGPA: 3.4 sGPA: 3.2 Last 60 hrs: 3.7 PCE: ER scribe: 2000+ (I understand not all school accepts this as PCE but the schools I will be applying to does) MA?: 700 hrs.

  13. Has anyone received/had an interview at MSJ?
  14. This is my first draft and I would love some feedback as soon as possible. Thank you! Personal Statement CASPA.docx
  15. This week, I am continuing my series on the most common personal statement mistakes. If you didn’t catch part one, check it out here. Below, you can find five more mistakes that applicants make when writing their personal statements. Writing About Something That Makes You a “Good Applicant” - Referencing being a “strong applicant” in a personal statement is not something I am a huge fan of. Your goal throughout your academic and clinical experiences should be to build a foundation that will make a better PA student and a stronger PA. It should not be about checking off boxes just because
  16. Hey y’all! I just posted a new article geared towards pre-PA students. It’s part one in a two part series about the biggest mistakes I see when critiquing and editing personal statements!
  17. Hi Everyone! I have a question that I HOPE someone on here has experienced and can help me out with an answer! As you know, many schools allow for one or two prereqs to be in progress when applying, but some require all to be completed prior to CASPA submission. My question is, if I put all my info into CASPA and say my course is in progress then submit to the programs that allow in progress submissions, can I then change that course to say completed or indicate that its not in progress any more and submit to the program that requires all to be completed once I'm done with the course? Or
  18. I am looking to submit by tonight and would appreciate the help. I would prefer if you are a PA, work at the pa school, admissions, or something of this sort but all help is definitely welcome. Please PM me if you can provide some assistance cMore
  19. Hello Everyone, Since is almost time to apply for this cycle, though I should start a discussion for this year. Anyone knows interview dates?
  20. I could not find a feed for Indiana State so I decided to start one to talk with those that may apply there this cycle.
  21. I played division 1 football for 4 years. Can this be added under the experiences section in CASPA? It really helped to shape me as a person and also the teamwork aspect of the PA profession is something that really appeals to me because of my background in the sport, so I think it should be included but just wanted to get input from others.

    CV vs. Resume?

    Hello All! For those who are applying to programs that require a CV/resume (i.e. Drexel), have you already completed your CV/resume? Are we allowed to choose if we submit a CV or a resume, or do they require a CV? Thank you! :)
  23. Hi everyone, 1) I am new to this forum and I have a question pertaining to transcript entry. I just graduated from college (BS in Psychology), but prior to entering university, I was dual-enrolled with a local community college while I was still in high school. I have 21 credits that were taken prior to entering my freshman year as well as 6 additional credits taken from the same community college the summer after my freshman year. I added that community college to allow myself to manually add my classes to that transcript, but I am not sure what to put for "academic status" since most of
  24. Hey y’all! First time applicant here. Just got my first rejection letter (first school I’ve heard from) so I’m feeling a little down right now. I’m applying to PA school with a lower gpa and wanted to make a support/advice forum for other people in my situation. I’m just starting my senior year of undergrad and I have a cumulative CASPA gpa of 3.22. My sGPA is a 3.18, nsGPA of 3.36. My BCP total was a 3.07 because Orgo and biochemistry killed my GPA (I got a C+ and C respectively). However my other science gpa is a 3.46. As far as other stats go, I got a 300 cumulative on the GRE (14
  25. Hello, I am trying to calculate my caspa cGPA and sGPA and I know AP credits aren't included in the calculation but I was wondering if anyone knew if post-secondary classes are which are classes I took in highschool at a community college near me? Thank You!!!
