  1. I'm a third year pre-med PA student and my grades including fall semester of 2017 are an overall gpa of 3.43 and overall science gpa of 3.45. My overall gpa is the same as my overall science gpa because I took 22 dual credit courses during high school and ended up getting a mediocre gpa. I also received a B- and C+ in general chem but I retook both semesters and received an A. My freshman gpa was a 3.16 and my sophomore gpa was a 3.5 so my grades have been going up. My grades this year so far are an overall gpa of 3.66 and overall science of 3.65. I have around 500 hours in HCE which I got by

  3. I figure I would start the thread for the program this year! I just applied today and awaiting CASPA verification.
  4. Hello! I figured I'd start a new topic for this cycle, has anyone started applying yet?
  5. I am a Biology/Pre-PA major Junior in college. I am in ROTC and participate in many extracurricular within ROTC, so I am ranked well. I am looking for advice on my chances for getting into PA school. I don't have many preferences for a PA school, my life dream has just always been to save lives within the medical field. At the time of applying for PA school I will have a 3.1-3.3 GPA, around 1000 hours as an ED medical scribe, and I worked as a pharmacy technician for a year. Most of my credibility outside of my GPA is ROTC which takes up a decent chunk of time which I am hoping will say
  6. Hi everyone! My name is Rachel and I am an upcoming PA student starting in May 2019 at USF's PA program in Tampa, Fl. I got my clinical experience first working as an EMT for an ambulance company, but later switching to being a medical assistant for a private practice dermatology experience in Plant City, FL (about 30 min from Tampa). I gained such valuable knowledge from both jobs! I currently still work for the derm practice, but will be leaving when I attend PA school. I just wanted to reach out to the pre-PA community because I'm sure there are a number of you who are look
  7. Hey everyone, I wanted to get some advice and input from people that have applied/been accepted/are already in PA school. So over the course of the past two months I was invited to interview at three different schools and recently have found out that I was rejected at all of them. I have about 1,500 hours as a CNA at an assisted living facility, 1,500 hours doing direct care with mentally/physically disabled adults, and just started working at a hospital as a nurses aide about two months ago. My GPAs are: -Last 60 credits: 4.0 -cGPA: 3.91 -science GPA: 3.97 -I also have a
  8. Hi I was wondering if anyone ever took the Masters in Medical Science program from UNTHSC before applying for PA school? It's a 1 rigorous program. I am interested in applying for it to possibly strengthen my application, but I would love some insight from anyone who had taken it too.
  9. Undergrad Ed School: University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Major (GPA) // Minor (GPA) : Biology (3.58) with 2 minors in Chemistry (2.9) & Psychology (4.0) Cumulative Undergrad. GPA: 3.68 Science Undergrad. GPA: 3.58 Post Bachelor GPA: N/A Age at application time : 22 1st GRE - V: 141 Q: 150 W: 3.0 // I unfortunately scheduled the GRE after taking 2 summer finals (Physics and Psychology of Individual Differences) so this score is pretty much a baseline for how I would do with minimal / no studying. 2nd GRE - V: 149 Q 161 W: 3.0 // The GRE prep I used was
  10. I haven't seen this thread covered yet on the site, but I wanted some insight on something if any of you guys could provide that for me. In correlation to the title of the thread, I have a question regarding minorities in the admission process. Quite simply, do they have a better chance of being accepted into PA school based on race, income level, etc. I know the obvious answer is yes, but once I did a little outside research, I have found that PA schools are less likely to accept these students in comparison to their white counterparts with less than steller GPA scores and other credentials ,
  11. Saw this was a new program on caspa, was wondering if anyone has heard anything about it. I couldn't find any information from the university's website directly about the program.
  12. HI GUYS! I DIDNT SEE A THREAD FOR PACE 2017-2018 FOR THE PLEASANTVILLE, WESTCHESTER, NY CAMPUS.SO HERE IT IS....GOODLUCK TO EVERYONE!!! :)
  13. Hey guys, My name is Logan and I am a new first year at the University of Florida. It wasn't long ago at all that I was sitting where you are sitting, knee deep in the application journey for PA school. I have compiled a list of things which opened my eyes to the application process after having been through it twice, as well as things I wish I had known going into the process which I think would've helped me be better prepared. A little background on me-- I got my degree in Athletic Training at Nova Southeastern University in Florida, where I was SUPER involved in extracurricular
  14. Hello all, I am applying to PA school this cycle and I'm trying to decide how to best optimize my application. I have around 1800 hrs of clinical experience currently (medical scribe) and around 100 hrs of medical related volunteering (hospice). I was originally planning on sending in my application this month after finishing my last pre-req courses. I've already written all my short answer questions for the school specific supplemental apps and they are all written based on the experience I currently have. However, now I'm faced with a dilemma. I'm going to be starting a new position s
  15. Hello all, I am anxiously awaiting PA school to begin in August. I was wondering if anyone has advice about the best way to prepare for school or anything they wish they would have known/done before starting. Thanks!
  16. I am in the final few weeks of my freshman year of college. I came in pre-nursing but realized I wasn't cut out for it. I got a 3.16 GPA first semester, and second semester has been a complete disaster, Biology, and anatomy I am barely passing, but nutrition and psychology I should be able to 4.0. I plan on retaking bio and anatomy, but with a 3.0 GPA freshman year is it possible to build up my GPA enough to get into PA school? Also, I am deciding what major to choose for my undergrad since Pre-nursing isn't a major, I was thinking kinesiology but I'm not sure. I am trying to work as a CNA in
  17. Is there a correlation between the prestige of a PA school's program and getting a job, or do your boards/GPA in PA school/whatever matter more?
  18. I have written a blog post that may be of use to you. It describes, in detail, the steps I took to get credentialed/ready to work after graduating from PA school. Steps to Take After Graduating from PA School
  19. I am currently a junior in undergrad and will be applying to PA school (probably) in 2 maybe 3 years. I have a bad past as I entered college not knowing what I wanted to do, and only took 3 science classes and have two FW’s and a C. So since then I’ve transferred and done better at university. However if you’re looking at my overall cumulative which caspa will do it is still low because i got my associates with mostly C’s. Now I’ve shadowed, know exactly what I want to do, and actually study and put in effort. I admit I really screwed up at the beginning. My question is looking for PA sc
  20. Hello all! I just started thinking about PA school recently. I graduated in Fall 2015 in Biology and Psychology. I'm 23, and I'm trying to figure out my life course. I'm wondering what people on this board think about teaching abroad for a year in China before I apply to PA school. I feel like I'm young and I want to see the world a bit before I commit. Has anyone done this before? Would PA Programs look down at this for any reason? I have most of the pre-requisite classes, I would just have to take Anatomy, Physiology (the 2 big ones haha), and perhaps Medical Terminology; I would probab
  21. Hello,I am an honors student at Arizona State University majoring in biological sciences. I currently have a 3.52 GPA. I know this isn't great and some of my friends have said that I probably don't have a chance of getting into PA school. I am considering adding a second major in Neuroscience. I would graduate a semester later but I was hoping the second degree/extra education would make me a stronger candidate. Would it? Or should I just graduate in Spring 2018 as planned? I am already planning on taking a gap year after graduation to get medical experience but its just a matter of whether I
  22. Hi guys. So currently, I have just finished my junior year of undergrad. My current but yet horrendous stats are cGPA: 2.75 & sGPA: 2.40Unfortunately, all the pre-req's I have take that are required for PA school, I have received Cs in. I really want to become a PA, but I know how hard and competitive it is. I was wondering if anyone could help me out with what to do next. I am an EMT and currently working as one as well to get the minimum hour requirement in for clinical experience; but with an EMT license I do wish to further become an ER Technician. My plan for the summer was to not tak
  23. Hello! I was wondering if anyone accepted into University of New England's program could share or message their application stats (gpa, HCE...). This is my top choice for a PA school and I am hoping to apply in a later cycle! Thank you for reading this and thank you for your time, I appreciate it a lot! -Maylily7 P.S. I'll put my stats here if ya want to comment on my chances of acceptance: cGPA 3.7, sGPA 3.5, Dean's List 7/8 semesters (currently in my last semester), about 100 hours volunteering for my school's EMS. I don't have a lot of Patient care hours but I am hoping to ta
  24. Hello! I am on the edge of whether or not I should apply for PA school this cycle. I am a Junior in college, so this would be applying tpostart PA school a few months after I graduate. Cumulative GPA:3.88 Science GPA:3.91 I only have about 550 hours being a pharmacy tech, which these 2 programs count as PCE, but will be applying in May so will have about 750-800 by then. I have about 110 volunteer hours-some in hospitals and a hospice agency where I visit patients, as well as about 20 shadowing hours, which I will really try to increase by May. I started the Pre-PA club at my u
  25. Hello Everyone! I currently live in Southern California but have been lucky enough to be accepted to a couple schools in NY. I am also currently waiting to hear back from a few California schools. I was wondering how important it is in terms of obtaining a job after PA School to attend a school that is located in the state that you wish to practice.
