Hello, I am new to this forum website but I am desperately seeking for some advice from any PAs or PA students. I am 19 turning 20 soon, and I live in the state of New Jersey. I am currently going to a county college called Middlesex and I have aspired to become a PA. I am currently about to terminate my 2nd year and originally I planned to only stay for this long and transfer. At first I wanted to be a nurse, but switched. I have taken some courses like Anatomy and Physiology, Microbiology and Chemistry. I want to know how I can branch off from here and become a PA. My counselor told me I should stay and do a bio major to knock some classes out of the way but I definitely know I won't finish anytime soon. However, I was reading about how those with healthcare experience is preferred prior to applying to a PA program and I was thinking of leaving the college I'm in now to become a surgical tech at a tech school to then earn that healthcare experience. Should I do this? Or does anyone think I'm better off staying and finishing my bio major. I feel like it'll take too long but what can I do? Any advice?
Hi Everyone, I'm new as a registrant but have been reading this forum for a long time. I have read a bunch of success stories about low gpa, etc. I have read about some people with low gpa's and almost no hce that were applying but many do not come back to share. Here's my situation: I have all my pre-reqs done at Richard Stockton College of NJ. I had to retake Chem 1, but got an A (previous grade D). I have two C's---Organic Chem II and Inorganic Chem II (along with Physics II--but It's not a prereq). I have shadowed a NP back in 2008 but only for 1 month for very little time (52 hours). I work fulltime as a water treatment operator for the drinking water utility company as a local government employee. Unfortunately that was the best I could find in my area that needed a Bachelor in Biology. I graduated back in 2010 with a 3.2 gpa overall. I also volunteer for a non-profit called AHEART since 2011 and work as the executive assistant, it's more like social work than patient care although I interact with people. I have about 6000 hours with AHEART. I want to apply soon through CASPA to Howard, University of Sciences, and Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. I feel like my application is weak. Do anyone have any suggestions as to what I could do fairly quickly to have a shot at making it? Thanks for helping.
