  1. Hey everyone, I am putting together my application for the upcoming cycle. I am at the part where I am inputting my transcript and can't figure out how to classify some courses taken as part of my Health Sciences major which kind of 'umbrellas' subjects under health care. The course in question is: Marketing in Healthcare. My dilemma is classifying this under either: Health Science Marketing Health Science Administration Please help
  2. CASPA failed to process my application before the deadline of October 1. They apparently had an issue processing the COVID—19 Transcript Delay Form. I checked in both through phone and email, and still, they failed to verify prior to the deadline. I submitted all material July. has anyone else had this issue?
  3. So I am filling out the transcript section of the caspa application and I am confused on what subject to put one of my classes the class is gross anatomy but I took biomedical major and the course code is BMED 2101 should I be putting the subject as biomedical science or anatomy ? Thank you in advance
  4. 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
  5. I received my BS from a Pass/Fail university. On the official transcript it states pass or fail by the course. Student records states that this equates to a 3.0 GPA. I contacted a PA school about applying to the program and I was told that this type of transcript will not be accepted by CASPA. However, I read on a forum that someone had a pass/fail transcript and was selected in to the program. How do a I overcome that?
  6. Just wondering if anyone knows how long (in general) it takes for a mailed transcript to be sent to and processed by CASPA? I submitted an order through parchment last Friday. The status reads "Delivered", but I've yet to see anything in CASPA.
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. Some of the schools that i am applying to requires 1 credit of medical terminology. I have my transcripts verified and have met all the other prerequisite courses. I don't know if i am missing something, but how do i input an in progress class into CASPA? I am planning on taking the 1 credit medical terminology course online. Can somebody please help? Each time i call CASPA, i just get the automated message and i don't want the programs to think i'm not planning on taking this course. Thank you so much!! edit: fixing typo
  10. I have two questions if anyone might be able to help me. 1) I used the Professional Transcript Entry and I was just wondering what the turn around time is usually for it? I applied to a school whose deadline is November (I know, I know, I'm almost late for this but this is my first application cycle, I have a lot of money saved, and I just wanted to try and see. It's my alma mater for undergrad and I would hate myself for not even trying to get in.) and I'm only about halfway through the 10 business days for the transcripts to be verified. I'm wondering if it's likely to be done before Oc
  11. Hey guys, I ordered PTE and sent all of my transcripts to Caspa this summer. They were all received by July and that is also when I ordered PTE. But I'm confused on how the process works. They don't start entering your coursework until you submit your application, right? But you can't submit your application until every section is complete... I tried to review and verify my coursework, but none of my courses are listed yet so it's impossible for me to complete the "transcript" part of the application. Please help!
  12. Basically I have 4 W's on my transcript right now and am facing an incomplete. I will be applying next year to a PA program and am concerned about my transcript. For the first W I will admit I dropped the class because I was taking AnP and didn't realize what I was getting myself into (but this is before I decided on applying to PA). The other 3 have to do with legitimate reasons, first my mother became ill and had to be bed ridden for more than a year and I was her only primary caregiver. I also had to deal with being a witness in a court case where I was being threatened by the opposing par
  13. Hi all, I've had to submit several transcripts to CASPA. All but one of them arrived last month. One transcript from one particular school cannot seem to get there, and I am incredibly frustrated. Has anyone encountered this problem, and if so, how have you worked around it? I requested that my transcript be sent from the school MULTIPLE times. I have requested it both regular and rushed. In the school's system, it shows that these were all mailed to CASPA, beginning last month. When I got desperate, I called CASPA and finally got through to a human there. She said that if my tran
  14. On the CASPA FAQ, it says about changes after e-submitting, "you may change .... references which have a status of “new” or “in-progress” and you may add additional schools to apply to. You may also add NEW experiences, achievements, certifications, and test scores, but you can NOT edit those already entered." So, from what understand, I can apply and submit to the two schools that have September 1st deadlines through CASPA, e-submit, then add and apply to the other school that has a January 15th deadline later. Can I add the school with a later deadline any time after after the CASPA applic
  15. I have my application ready to submit to a program that has a deadline of 8/1 aside from one outstanding transcript. I mailed my school the transcript request two weeks ago and indicated to hold for final grades. The transcript in question is for one prerequisite course and grades will be finalized Monday 7/20. Then it will be a matter of the school processing my transcript request, mailing it, and CASPA receiving it. Does my CASPA application have to have a status of complete before the deadline of 8/1 or just submitted?
  16. I know supplemental apps tend to offer sections for you to write about things that may not be addressed in your CASPA application. As in, I have nine withdrawals! YIPES! And I need to come up with reasons for those W's. For 6 of them, I have a legit excuse (death in family). But for 3 others that occurred back in 2005 and 2006, I can't even remember why I withdrew!!! Other than saying I was young and lazy, any suggestions for what to put????? (BTW, none of these W's were withdraw/fail)
  17. I made a search and found topics related to CASPA, but it seemed most were medics or corpsman and including that particular schools. I was not a medic or corpsman. I would like to know if anyone has included their "SMART" or "Joint Service Transcript" on CASPA (whether medics/corpsman or not). Mine has no coursework that was used toward my degree, but I have taken a lot MCI's and such, but it shows diversity with the courses that I have taken and includes my military schooling of course, which is completely irrelevant toward anything medicine. Any advice is welcome!
  18. Hello Everyone, To fulfill the prerequisites for PA schools and to be more competitive, I've taken courses from multiple schools. Some at the community college level and others at the university level. Has anyone run into an issue or know if PA schools frown upon taking courses from multiple institutions? I know some schools dislike community college courses and online courses, but as a self Post-Bach student it is financially or timewise more feasible for me to take some courses at the cc level. It just feels ridiculous at times sending multiple transcripts, but I want to do these upp
  19. So long story short, I've experienced a rough transition from high school to undergraduate. My first year marks were not the best and my second year marks were average (biochem, genetics). Needless to say, the bottom of my transcript is nothing to boast about. Come third year, I get my life together and start popping out consistent 4.0s left, right, and center all the way through 4th year as well (human anatomy, human physiology, etc). So my issue is undoing my first two years. I am now graduated and have a lousy 3.0 overall GPA, with a 3.9-4.0 in my last two years. With this in mind, I r
  20. I've been dealing with a lot of back and forth with the graduate admissions office and don't know what to do at this point. Once they received the transcript for the undergrad institution I'm getting my bachelors at, they e-mailed me a request for official transcripts from Advanced Placement and AARTS/ACE (military transcript for basic training and specialty training). Neither one of these are colleges so they don't mail out paper transcripts. I had an official electronic transcript from AARTS sent because that's the only kind the federal government offers for this professional coursework. The
  21. Hi all, I am applying to PA school when the new cycle opens up in a April 2012. Right now, I am working as a mental health counselor and have been doing that for about 5 years now. I interviewed and just got a job offer for a Neurophys Tech in NY. I want to know if anyone here is working in this field and what your thoughts are on it. My ultimate goal is to get into PA school and am hoping that this new position will only enhance my application. Your thoughts on whether or not I should take this position and discontinue mental health would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your thought
