  1. Hello everyone! I thought I would start a thread for this cycle. Waiting for my transcripts to be received by caspa and then I plan on submitting.
  2. Soooooooo I just got my 13th denial email from applying to pa schools this year and I am feeling absolutely hopeless. I know I am not the only one, but I am asking for any help possible. I definitely want to reapply and not give up my dream of being a pa (this is what I have wanted this I was 16). So according to my resume what areas can I work on? My stats: GPA: 3.34 (CASPA GPA 3.24) Prerecs: Anatomy: A Physiology: B Gen chem: A- orgo chem: A- Biochem: B+ into psych: AP credit life span psych: B+ gen biology: B Physics: A pathophysiology: B- PCE: around 1400, 550 as
  3. Hello, this is my first time posting on this website and am hoping to get some help. I just made a profile on the CASPA website recently. When I went to look for these two programs I am interested in I could not find them. Do programs not show up until certain times during the year? Thank you in advance.
  4. When should someone create a CASPA application? It’ll be a couple years before I start applying as I’m still trying to get my pre-requisites under my belt. I thought it’d be a good idea to start one now and add as I go along? Any thoughts?
  5. Thought I would get this started, anyone submit yet? I submitted my CASPA on 5/12, supplemental 5/13, and GRE on 5/13 as well!
  6. Hi all, new here! Thanks in advance for the help! I'm under the impression that you aren't supposed to include experience that you received academic credit for in the experience section. If that is the case, why is there a "received academic credit" option to select for experiences? From my previous healthcare degree, I did a number of internships and a residency program that I received academic credit for but on my transcript, it just says "internship hours" or "practicum hours" and provides no detail about the experience. Can I list the details of the experiences (as they wer
  7. 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?
  8. Hello everyone, I am new to this site and I would really appreciate if I can receive advice. I have an undergraduate GPA of 3.045 right now this is prior to my spring semester grades being placed in and I project my GPA to raise but I guess not much since I will mostly have A's and B's. I am also graduating in December so I have one more semester. What makes me nervous is that Yale requires prereq's that I don't have yet (Micro, A&P I AND II, and Biochem) but I have the statistics portion. Luckily, Yale doesn't require any labs for the prereq's. Yale's minimum GPA req is a 2.8 however
  9. Lets start this thread going. Good luck to all who are applying this cycle. I submitted my app 5/11/17, CASPA complete 6/12/17, CASPA verified 6/16/17. Western U received CAS 6/19/17 Processed by Enrollment Data Services (EDS) 6/19/17. Now playing the waiting game. Again good luck everyone!
  10. Hi! Does anyone know of any programs that once required the GRE and are now no longer requiring it this year due to COVID? I wanted to apply to a few more schools but haven’t taken the GRE. Thanks!
  11. Hey good people! I hope you’re all well and healthy during this COVID-19 outbreak. Just wanted to start this early and see your progress on the 2020-21 PA applications!
  12. So I am applying for this cycle and I previously entered my job in experiences as current. after submitting the application I had to quit this job because it was a terrible work environment. However, it is in CASPA as current so idk what to do. I also got a new job but it doesn't start for another week and I was going to submit my apps this weekend so i am not sure how to go about this. Also is it better to apply sooner with less PCE or later with more PCE???
  13. hello, i'm considering applying this cycle after completing my BSc in biology this past spring. i'm not sure if there is anyone here who has had an interview invite or being accepted with similar stats. your input is greatly appreciated. thanks cGPA:3.3 sGPA: 2.97 Volunteering 1500 PCE 11280 hrs HCE: 4500 shadow hours: 120 LORs: 1 MD and 2 PAs no GRE score, no research hrs
  14. Hello Everyone, I am finishing up my achievements section under CASPA and I have a lot of scholarships to include. I have more than 15 scholarships, some merit based and some need based. I don't know if I should include dollar amounts on the description. Some are as small $500 and some as high as $35K. I'm not sure the amounts are appropriate or relevant. I am honestly very proud of all of them because even a couple bucks helped me a great deal so I'm okay with listing. What is your take on this?
  15. My CASPA application was recently verified 2 weeks ago. However, I am still completing some applications on CASPA and I was wondering how to go about updating my current HCE experience? I have a full-time job, so I already accumulated about 80 hours since my application was verified. Do I need add new HCE experience (with the same description) that is already listed as "till date"? Also, how do you update current experience (if at all)? Do you write the start time from which you started the job or the start date from which you last updated that type of experience from when the application was
  16. Does anyone know how long it usually takes for Professional Transcript Entry to be completed? I paid for the service before finding out that it might be more time saving to do it yourself. I submitted my CASPA on 5/16 and now I'm just an anxious ball of energy waiting for them to enter my courses.
  17. Hello, I'm having a little panic session right now. I submitted one application and realized I did not add the last name for a PA that I shadowed in my experience section. Is this gonna be a major issue for my application? I thought CASPA meant that I couldn't edit the submitted application but that I could still edit the ones I had not yet submitted and now I realize I can't. Are schools going to fault me for this?
  18. Hello all! I’m relatively new to this site and it’s my first time posting. I recently submitted my applications and I received an email yesterday from a school about my grade in Orgo 1. I got a C- (ugh. I know) and they said that they couldn’t substitute Orgo 2 for that requirement. They asked if I would be interested in retaking the course which I am interested in doing if it’ll increase my chances of getting in. My question is: how do I go about adding that to my application if I’m not taking the class until the fall? Should I call each program I applied to and tell them my intent
  19. Hi! I'm curious what other people have done in the past/suggest for adding collegiate athletics to CASPA? It was a huge part of my 4 years in college, and I was also a captain so I wanted to include the leadership aspect to my application but I'm not sure how to enter accurately. If I add being a captain under leadership experience, it requires me to select "Volunteer, Academic, or Paid". I currently have my sport entered under "Memberships" but I'm open to changing it to something different. Any suggestions/insight you could offer would be great! Thank you in advanced!
  20. I am currently on deployment with AMR in New York. I was wondering how I should count those hours on my CASPA application?
  21. Hi all, can someone please tell me my chances of being invited to an interview or give me suggestions as to what I should do to improve my application? I would really appreciate any input. I’m applying next cycle (2021-2022) thank you in advance! Btw I calculated it the way caspa would using ThePAPlatform gpa calculator. cGPA: 3:77 sGPA: 3.3 ~1400 hrs as a CNA ~200 hrs as a behavior therapist (it was cut short due to COVID and I have to move back home hours away) I just got offered a job at the front desk at the chiropractic office I’m getting treated at (I r

    Experiences

    Earlier this year I attended a PA school virtual fair in which multiple people said you want to be as descriptive as possible in your "experiences" tab on CASPA. I have worked several CNA jobs with different companies, but the job and work I did was basically the same. I'm looking for some advice... should I be redundant so I don't leave anything out in the work I did or should I try and pick out things that are more specific to each job? For example I worked in two nursing homes as a CNA and then as a traveling CNA with 2 agencies at the same time. Anyone able to give any feedback? I feel as
  23. I was wondering has anyone submitted the Caspa for Yale online and what are the three essays that they require like and what are they over? Also has anyone taken the Casper and what are the questions like and is it as difficult as people make it seem? Trey
  24. I went into CASPA to continue filling out applications and saw under Evaluations that it said "The last date to enter Evaluation requests for this cycle was 4/1/20 11:59 PM EST." I was completely unaware of this, I have confirmed that I am getting my recommendation letters from people, but did not know I had to add them in as Evaluations in advance. I'm not sure what to do there is no option that says add evaluations anymore? Not sure what to do, I can't call until Monday to see what will happen.
