  1. Hello all, I'm brand new to this forum. I graduated with a degree in biology and a gpa of 3.52, and was planning to go to medical school the whole way through, while also thinking a lot about PA school. I was ready to apply to med school while I was finishing college, but decided to take some time away from the academic environment to make sure I really wanted to do med school. After almost a year of soul-searching, researching and deliberation (in addition to the last 4 years), I have finally decided that PA is a more appropriate career path for me. I had a great mcat score (93%) and I h
  2. Hello! I graduated from MSU with a Human Biology Major in Winter 2015. It has been about 3 years since i have graduated. I studied the MCAT and took the test once and did not apply to any med school because of my MCAT score and GPA. i have a GPA 3.0 and not sure about my science gpa about 2.7-2.9 I just got married this summer and have been rethinking about med school and wanted to go to PA school instead It seems as competitive as med school but it is only 2 years of school. I don't have ANY direct paid health care experience only volunteering and haven't tak
  3. I'm currently a reserve army medic going to school and working at a civilian hospital. I have the opportunity to become a flight medic but the training isn’t very practical for me right now since I am still trying to finish my bachelor's degree. Would being a flight medic over a standard army medic help me in the admissions process to PA school? Or would army medic be attractive enough? A little background, my other experience includes 6 months patient transporter, 2 years Cath Lab CNA, 2 years Blood Draw Medical Assistant/Phlebotomist, 6 years Army Reserve Medic Thank you for any

  5. Hello, I am currently in the 3rd semester of my paramedic course, and a senior in college. I will be graduating in May 2018 with a BS is kinesiology, with an expected GPA of about 3.6, with a science GPA of about 3.35. I will also have completed my paramedic course, along with the national registration as well. By the time I apply in September, 2018, I will have just over 2000 as an EMT-B and EMT-P. I am a little concerned with the GPA's, as they are average, and it seems that all the schools average for acceptance are about 3.8 or higher. Do I have a chance of getting in?
  6. Hello everyone, I was hoping someone could shed some light on my situation. I am currently a paramedic, and have over 10,000 HCE. I was working as a firefighter recruit in the academy and unfortunately got injured twice. I was forced to resign and started working as a paramedic again. I love medicine and I have been working on my undergrad for the past 1.5 years. Currently a senior and all of my prereqs are finished (sgpa 3.7). I have an upward trend in my GPA, which was initially terrible (had bad GPA about 8 years ago when I was going through family issues and wasn't focused in school).
  7. I am applying this cycle to multilple PA programs. I've looked at old threads and know this has been an issue for others in the past. I hold my NREMT-P cert which I cannot let go due to my DOD obligations. If I am accepted, my recert window will fall sometime during the clinical year. Has anyone's found success with their program or medical director to have the didactic year satisfy requirements?
  8. I am considering becoming a paramedic to get some clinical experience before becoming a physician assistant. Anyone else doing this? I am 26 years old and my main reason for thinking about going this route before PA School is because I just recently got out of the Navy where I was a Corpsman so I do have more than enough patient contact hours in many settings but am also married with kids. My wife is finishing up PT school so I do have to work a well paying job while she finishes up school. I am a RMA as well but they do not make that much and the job is really boring as far as what I am used
  9. Love to hear some opinions on my personal essay. Im sure there are some grammatical errors as this is first draft. More interested in flow, content, readability, does opening hook you to read more? All advice and input is welcome. Thanks It’s 3 am I wake up to bright lights and a strangers loud voice. “Medical Emergency Engine 2” being a rookie it took me a bit to shake off the sluggish feeling before I realized the address was the a low income housing area common place for medical emergencies in our district. In my first 2 months we had 11 medical calls to this location alone, including 3
  10. Here's my hail mary, folks. Hey, guys, I'm Lauren. I'm 26, hailing from Rhode Island. I went to the University of RI for undergrad, BS in Kinesiology, Exercise science and through a series of unfortunate events including a few family deaths, a sexual assault, and the uncontrolled depression that went along with it, I did not do that great undergrad. Cum overall was 2.8/2.9. Being fair, I didn't know I want to try for PA school until senior year essentially and by then my life had exploded. So I took some time off. I went to India for a month, shadowing doctors and being in hospitals th
  11. First of all, I want to say that I am very thrilled to have gotten into PA school. I can't wait till July when I start school. Now, I figured I come back to reality and really see how much I will owe. Yesterday I sat down and after punching in some numbers, I got a lot more than I expected. I got into a school in NYC (27 months). The tuition with fees, books, and supplies, the total was around 88k. As for the living expenses, with rent, utilities, transportation, and food, I figured $2000 per month (is this too little?). After 27 months, the total will be 142k!! Is this reasonable? I
