  1. I just had all of my transcripts uploaded by CASPA. And, I’ve approved them, but do I have to match the prerequisites to the programs or will CASPA do that for me if I opt out? Thx
  2. I am currently on track to go to PA school directly after college, but I want to know whether or not I should decide to take a gap year. I am only a college sophomore but I already have my CMA certification and working this summer in medical records. This fall, I also already have a job in line for a MA position and I will also be able to shadow the PA there. My question is am I rushing things? Should I just focus on my GPA or should I continue to work and shadow during the school year? Or would taking a gap year be the most beneficial?
  3. Hey! If anyone has any questions regarding PA school or their application please don't hesitate to let me know! I applied to 9 schools, got accepted to 1, waitlisted at 4 schools and denied to 4 schools. When I was applying there were not many resources to find other students who were accepted with low GPAs to see what they have done, so I just want to help out as much as possible. This is a very stressful part of an individual's life and having someone to relate to can definitely help out. If anyone feels uncomfortable commenting their questions on here or need a super fast res
  4. 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
  5. Hi everyone. I am currently applying this cycle with these stats. According to my calculations: cGPA = 3.12 sGPA = 3.23 These grades are the combined total of all my classes, including undergraduate (cGPA 2.88 and sGPA 2.96). I took post-bac classes (53 credits) and received A's in all them, which include major pre reqs required by most PA schools. For one year, I worked full time while taking courses. GRE = 309 total. 154 Quant (55th percentile) 155 Verbal (69th percentile) and 5.0 writing (93rd percentile) Total PCE ~ 4057 hours for about 2 years of working fu
  6. Hello, I'm a new user on this board and am in a bit of a pickle. I was originally a Pre-Nursing major, but switched my major to biology(pre-pa) before taking the TEAS for Nursing. Marywood University has a 5-year PA program that undergrads can transfer into with the only requirement being a 3.0 GPA. The only catch is that admission into the professional phase (the actual PA program) is competitive, and still requires an interview and possibly even GREs. I'm in my sophomore year and am a bit behind since I had to switch from Pre-Nursing, but have managed to finish both semesters of general
  7. 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
  8. Hey guys! I am currently a Nutrition Science major in undergrad and I am required to take organic chemistry II to graduate. I will probably end up with a C because the class is terrible and I don't understand anything. Is it worth retaking over the summer before applying to PA schools even though the programs that I am interested in do not require organic chemistry II as a prerequisite? I have a 3.7 GPA and my science GPA is a 3.5.
  9. I took Organic chemistry last semester and got a C-, so now my science GPA is ruined. Are there any schools that don't require Ochem as a pre-req?
  10. Hi everyone, I'm looking for someone to help me with my personal statement. I have something of a rough draft written. If anyone could help, I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you!

  15. Older student here. Current Junior in Physiology track, 4.0 GPA. 5+ years working as civilian in clinical psych research for DOD - 2.5 years working with AD 0311s & 3 working with vets in a VA psych Dept. 2 questions: - is it too early in my college track to be contacting recruiters for info? Interested in Navy PA primarily, open to AF/Army. - my spouse is active duty, E-8 (EOD) with 5 years remaining.

  16. Hey guys! Didn't see a post for this cycle yet. Wishing y'all good luck this year!
  17. Hello, hello, I am very excited! I've interviewed with 4 programs and been accepted into 3 so far! This is a huge accomplishment, especially because my confidence was pretty low until October. I have not yet heard back from my top choice in NYC, but my back-up program is just as good as my top choice (actually, it's better, but I like the location of my top choice more for clinicals). All of this being said, I'm really not sure what I need to start purchasing now or soon. Are there materials that any PA students or PA's feel were helpful when they started PA school? Any absolute nece
  18. 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
  19. 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

  21. Hi has anyone applied to Westfield State or have previously interviewed here?
  22. I am concerned about my GPA. As a background, I am a non traditional pre-PA student. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology more than 20 years ago from a foreign university. For the past year, I had been retaking all required pre-requisites to be able to apply to PA school. I am planning to apply next cycle (April 2019). Anyway, my concern is this: I think my cGPA from my foreign university will not even reach a 3 but my cGPA from retaking the pre-requisites (this past year)is a 3.89 and my sGPA is a 4. My patient care hours probably amounts to more than 5000 hrs and count
  23. Hello, I'm a senior with public health major. I want to complete my Public Health bachelors at my current college but I want to take the leftover Pre-reqs for PA at a community college at the same time due to financial reasons. Do you think PA schools care if some of the prereqs are taken at a community school? Thank you for your responses
  24. Hello there! My name is Evelyn Uttikur and I am currently a pre-PA student that resides in Queens. I have volunteered at a local hospital, however, I would greatly appreciate if there are any PAs that are willing to let me shadow them and to impart any advice or wisdom necessary. Please email me at evelynuttikur@gmail.com when you get the chance. Thank you!
  25. Hey guys, I just got certified as a phlebotomy technician. I had also applied for a scribe job and got called for an interview. I'm a little confused about what would look better on my resume? Having a year of scribe experience or phlebotomist. Should I just work full time as a scribe or Phlebotomist? or should I do part-time in both? Any suggestions and insight would be greatly appreciated.
