  1. Hey everyone! I was recently accepted into a program for fall of 2020. BIOCHEM was not a prerequisite, but I have been currently retaking the class in case I had to re apply. My acceptance is conditional based on having an up to date physical and that is It (I already submitted the physical). My question is, is It worth finishing up this class strong? Or should I stop putting effort into the class and relax until my program starts? I’m not sure what to do & don’t want to waste time studying if I do not have to! Thanks !!
  2. Hi, I applied to SCUHS. I received an email from them after CASPA verified my application saying that interview notification will be sent out in January and interviews in February. Today is January 26th 2018 and I have heard nothing. Anyone heard from them?
  3. Hey there everybody! So I have been debating and trying to arrange the schools I applied to in order of which I would most like to attend. My question is what to do if you get an interview and acceptance offer at one of the lower schools on your list before you hear back from one of the more preferential schools. From what I understand, it is typical to have 10 calendar days to accept the offer and put the 1000ish dollars down to reserve your spot. I don't want to take the offer when I could get into one of the better schools. But I also don't want to pass on the offer only to find out I h
  4. Hey guys, I'm currently considering applying next year and was wondering if anyone could share their stats for getting into nova or any other school in florida, especially how many pce hours, since they don't seem to require it but I'm not sure how many most applicants have.
  5. Hi everyone, I really really want to be a physician assistant, but I don't have the most outstanding test scores or grades. I was wondering if you all could give me your opinion on if I have any chance at all of getting into a PA program. My overall GPA was a 3.30 and my science GPA was a 3.27. I took the GRE and got a 155 on verbal, but only a 145 on the quantitative section, and a 4.0 on the writing section. I will have 1,720 hours of healthcare experience working as a CNA by the time I am planning to apply to physician assistant programs. I also have 24 hours of shadowing PAs as experi
  6. 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
  7. Hello! I feel blessed to be coming to you guys with such a problem, but it's been weighing on me and need advice from current PA-S's and PA-C's. I have been accepted to two schools: School A which is 20 minutes away from my current living space and School B which is closer to my parents, but still about an hour away. Schools A and B seem pretty comparable in terms of curriculum, program length (A: 27 mo versus B: 25 mo), PANCE pass rates (A: 97 versus B: 99), tuition (a difference of 3K), and employment rates after graduation. The main differences that I see are that school B is associate
  8. I'm applying to UF in a few weeks, and it's also time to register for summer/fall classes at UCF if I'm going to take them. I can either take Orgo 2 and lab this summer, followed by Biochem this fall, (which will only be listed on my CASPA as future classes) or I can work many more shifts at the hospital and also shadow more. My stats: - 33 year-old, male, second career applicant. Have a non-science master's degree. - Went back to school to take all pre-reqs at UCF. Got straight A's on required pre-req's, plus As in Genetics and Orgo 1 - BCP GPA 3.9 // Overall GPA 3.8 // GR
  9. What is the lowest GPA acceptance have you gotten or heard of? Has anyone (or yourself) you know gotten in with a GPA lower than 3.0? If so, what stood them (or you) out than others?
  10. 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.
  11. Is there a general chart displaying the acceptance rate of all accredited PA schools? It's well known that getting into PA school is competitive, so I would be surprised if there wasn't such a chart, as it would be very useful in considering programs.
  12. To keep a long story short - I am 24 years old and attending South University in Savannah, GA for Psychology. I originally wanted to do something along the lines of neurology, psychiatry, or pathology. Ultimately, I have gained an extreme interest in becoming a PA. My main concerns are my chances of acceptance into a PA program - specifically the program provided at South University in Savannah, GA. I do not have any experience in the medical field. I've worked at Gulfstream Aerospace (a very good job/position) in Savannah for almost 3 years. I make about $60,000 per ye
  13. Hey everyone! I wanted to start a thread to see where everyone is with the application and interview process for the 2017-2018 cycle. It appears as though this program is still on probation, has anyone heard any news? Thanks all <3
  14. Hey all, I'm having some trouble deciding between becoming an RN or becoming a PA. I know there are many differences between the two professions, but that only seems to make my decision harder. Recently I just got accepted into my schools nursing program, but I'm not sure if I want to go through with it. For a very long time now I have wanted to be a PA but pretty much ruled it out because I thought the path it took to get there would be too hard. I have never been a straight A student (A's and B's with a rare C), and I know GPA is a heavily weighted factor in even getting considered for
  15. Here is the continuation of the story..... Few days back, I had posted a topic about getting an interview from a school on probation. Well, I got accepted. This was the first time I was applying. I am feeling happy but lost. As I had previously mentioned, I did not apply to many colleges this cycle. Only 5, as I had 2 more pre-requisites to finish and have not taken my GRE. I got one rejection so far and one acceptance( from a school on probation) and yet to hear from the others(3 left). Before the probation issue, I really did like this school. It was close to home-2
  16. Hi everyone, I am a pre-PA school who recently had an interview at MCPHS Boston PA Program. When I visited there for my interview, they said the result will come out in 2 to 3 weeks, but they did not specify how they would let us know. Does anybody know if they email us or call us whether we got rejected or accepted? Also, should I contact the school if I do not hear back after 3 weeks? Thanks!
  17. Hello everyone! I am in need of some feedback on where I stand with my chances of acceptance as well as my current path and advice on where to go from here. I am 23 years old and a recent graduate (May 2017) from Texas Tech University and was on the Pre-PA route. I received a B.S. in Biology along with a minor in both health professions and spanish. I finished with an overall cumulative GPA of 3.20 and a science GPA (I think...kinda confused on how they calculate this) of a 2.73. I have my CNA license, shadowing hours in multiple states within the USA at different types of practic
  18. Hi all, I just wanted to know if anyone has gotten into PA school, or are going to apply, that have not been the traditional Biology, Chemistry, Bio-Chem, etc. science majors? I am a Psychology major, but was previously a Biology major. I have finished all of the pre-reqs for most PA schools and some of the "recommended but not required" courses. I am just afraid that the committee will doubt my academic readiness to take on PA school. Does anyone have any experience in this? Thank you!
  19. Hello everyone! My name is Ben and I am looking to start a thread for everyone who was accepted to ODU for the class entering Aug 21, 2017. I received my acceptance email and letter towards the end of October and am hoping to connect with some of the students who have been accepted so far! Anybody accepted that is from Columbus? Any tips on looking for housing near campus?
  20. Hey Everyone! Long time lurker, first time poster. For the longest time, I was dead set on going to Rutgers/UMDNJ (since I did undergrad here), but applied to 9 other programs, just in case. As it turns out, I was accepted to Rutgers very early before hearing from any other schools. Since PCOM was my #2 school, I decided to go to the interview and loved it! Now that I have been accepted, I cannot decide which program to do. Both programs are relatively the same price with PCOM being a year shorter. I’ve seen posts like this before and I understand that it is an individual decision that I have
  21. Hello everyone, I have recently decided to portray a degree in ESS that is designed to get (help) me into PA school. However, before I made this choice, I was pursuing a BS in Computer Science. To make a long story short, I failed my second CS course and my Calc 2 course because of personal and educational issues. These two courses are not required for PA school, but I'm worried if my grade in them will reflect on my acceptance into a PA school. I'm wondering if anyone has experience this? What do I need to do? How can proceed to becoming a PA?
  22. I've seen quite a few times that interviewers will question why you're choosing to become a PA rather than a Nurse Practitioner after working as a nurse full-time for several years. To me, I'll still be getting the hands on experience I need to be functional as a PA and will be more involved and in the know than I would if I worked as a CNA first, which seems to be a more accepted form of getting patient care experience for PA school. Do you think becoming a Nurse could affect my chances of being accepted to PA school? My argument would be that I prefer the more in depth diagnosis and tr
  23. Hello all, I have recently been accepted into a few different programs and I am trying to choose between two schools specifically. They are extremely different. One is the Unviersity of New England, a mid ranked school focused on primary care and rural medicine, emphasizing​ Interprofessional relationships. The other is the more "prestigious" George Washington University that offers a MPH in either epi, policy, or community health in addition. I have spoken to alumni of UNE and they have only positive things to say about the program. I feel that the GW program is very experienced and could po
  24. Hello all, I am 39 years old. I have been thinking about proceeding through two years of fulfilling requirements, and health care experience- to apply to all and any PA schools - preferably New York or Southern California, Northern California. Although i have worked in health and wellness fields for six years in New York, it was primarily management. I have an undergraduate degree in Painting, and a 3.8 gpa. once to teach at the college level, but did not pursue masters as turn in economy and job market. After many turns in the economy and changes to job market with the mass flood of techn
  25. DREXEL UNIVERSITY vs. A.T. STILL UNIVERSITY I received my offers only a few days apart, ATSU before Drexel. Before any of my interviews, Drexel was my number one choice. Looking back, I had little basis for this, other than its reputation and I’ve got a friend who is a first student there who rants and raves about it. My first interview was at Drexel, so I was naturally very nervous. I had no clue what to expect, it was an all day experience and I felt brain fried and overwhelmed by the end. I thought I performed horribly during the individual interview (guess not, since I’ve been accepted
