  1. After a while of revising my priorities and passions, I have lead myself to know that I want to become a PA. However, at this very moment I am in a pickle. I go to UCLA but do not want to continue here. I have my first year done (11 classes) with a good gpa at 3.75. However, this year almost killed me to get that not perfect gpa. Likewise, I have few hours working in the medical field and need to rack up some more hours. My next year if I continue at UCLA will load on more classes with no buffer, I am certain that my gpa will suffer and continue to fall do to the sheer amount of grade deflati
  2. Dear, whom may it concerns! Hi, I am 24 years old female who is truly considering to become a PA. I am senior in 4 year University and having low GPA right now. I have a questions to make sure before i put my records into Caspa system. Q1: I transferred from Community college to 4-years university. Since I was transferring from my Cc to 4year university, they counted my A grade from cc as B grade in university. When I imput My GPA to CASPA system, i am not sure which grade I should input. Does CASPA has some kind of policies like this? Q2: I am currently senior but it is my 5th year
  3. I finished my undergraduate degree last year with a B.S. in Accounting and Information Systems (May 2014). I am currently 23 years old and turning 24 end of this calendar year. I am working with a Big 4 accounting firm for nearly a year now doing management consulting and am quite unhappy with this line of work. My undergraduate GPA in Accounting and MIS was about a 3.4 from a top public university in the northeastern US. I would ideally like to go into PA school and work towards becoming a Physician Assistant. I have had years of clinical experience as an EMT on an ambulance and as a hosp

    Retake Advice

    I don't know if this has been asked before, but I will ask anyway since I really need some advice. Long story short, I took Anatomy and physiology I at a community college the first time and received a C and I also received a Withdraw in Anatomy and Physiology II. I will be transferring to a 4-year university this Fall 2015 as a junior and I am not sure if I should just retake Anatomy and Physiology at the University where it is offered as separate courses or if I should just retake them at the same community college again while I am enrolled at the university. I asked the PA prog
  5. Hey everyone! So this is my situation :) I graduated from a 4 year university (UMD) where I took some pre-reqs. I now go to a community college where I am taking the rest of the pre-reqs PLUS higher level science courses. Should I complete the higher level science courses at the community college or a university? Would it make a difference? Thank you for your help! :)
  6. Hello, I am new to this forum website but I am desperately seeking for some advice from any PAs or PA students. I am 19 turning 20 soon, and I live in the state of New Jersey. I am currently going to a county college called Middlesex and I have aspired to become a PA. I am currently about to terminate my 2nd year and originally I planned to only stay for this long and transfer. At first I wanted to be a nurse, but switched. I have taken some courses like Anatomy and Physiology, Microbiology and Chemistry. I want to know how I can branch off from here and become a PA. My counselor told me I
  7. I graduate with my BS in Psychology this May, but have only completed the minimum of prerequisite classes (in good - but not amazing - academic standing). I've decided to take an extra year (Fall/Spring) to bolster my academic profile and increase HCE before applying. I'm currently debating between Physics 1 + 2 and Genetics + unknown Spring course. Important factors to consider: - Physics 1 + 2 would be NON-CALCULUS - Genetics (and the other Spring course) - would be a 200-level class (since it's being taken at a CC) Any suggestions on what I should do here? I know some schools
  8. Can anyone give some advice if Pre-pa program is necessary for PA school? The University i got accepted to offers that program but money is short and i'm not sure whether i should do 2 years at a community college then finish at a 4 year, or put off PA for now and take an ems course and work as an EMT to acquire more money and be able to pay for university?
  9. Hello, I'm soon going to graduate from high school and i got accepted into a university that offers pre-physician assistant program and i'm not sure whether i should go ahead and go or save some money and go to a local community college and later transfer?? So i guess in shorter terms is a pre-physician program necessary to be accepted into a PA school? I should mention i plan to major in bio-health sciences.
