  1. Hi, just to give some background, I am a 22 y/o make and a senior at the university of Tennessee @ Knoxville majoring in history and minoring in chemistry. I was originally set on going the MD route until I was recently introduced to the inner workings of the PA career and am now very interested. I am looking for any advice on how to improve my resume as well as schools which I fit the criteria for. I am interested in the northeastern portion of the US as well as Chicago but am open to recommendation. Thank you in advance to any advice I have yet to take the GRE, but I have no doubts that
  2. Hello All, This is my first post in this forum and im really pumped! I'm currently a junior right now and will hopefully be applying to PA schools here in the coming future. I was wondering if I could get some insights from the people who are ahead of me in the process with how applying goes, and if i have a shot at some higher tier schools. So far my cumulative GPA is a 3.77, with a science GPA of about 3.65ish. Courses I've taken (Sport and Exercise Science Major/Pre-PA track) are as follows: Molecular and Cellular Bio: B+ Gen Chem I and II w/ Labs: B, B+, A-, A-
  3. Is there a correlation between the prestige of a PA school's program and getting a job, or do your boards/GPA in PA school/whatever matter more?
  4. So I was reviewing the Florida International University PA program website and they said that they admit over 90% of their class who are from Florida. I am not from Florida so I was wondering if the odds are stacked pretty highly against me for this school? Is it worth spending the money to apply here?
  5. 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
  6. With this thread, I am attempting to create a one-stop-shop for everyone's prerequisite questions, by compiling a complete list of every PA program's prereqs and experience requirements, as well as the location of each program. It would be nice if someone stickied this, and everyone can feel free to contribute. I apologize for the sporadic capitalization, I hand-typed all of this, as copying and pasting was far too messy and inconsistent. My first post is the nine schools in New England, since it's kind of the area I know the most about. I'm going to try and group schools by geographic area, e
  7. Hello! I am currently trying to narrow down my list of PA schools. I know it's expensive so I decided no more than 12 schools but unfortunately my list is at 90 that I qualify for. How would you recommend choosing schools besides HCE requirements, pre-reqs, and cost? Also, I would really like to know if the location is a concern. I know I will be studying most of the time so I don't need to live in an exciting city per say, but I would like a place where I feel comfortable with the community and without a high crime rate.(Are those reasonable deal breakers?) I am a female of small stature so
  8. Hello forum! Unfortunately, I recently decided that dental school was something I am not willing to do. It is a great career but the main reason I was doing it was because that would make my dad happy. Anyways we had a talk and he was content with my decision. Anyways a little background about me; I am senior undergraduate studying abroad until August 2017. I am intern at a hospital in Madrid working in a schizophrenia research project and part time surgical labatory with rodents. I decided I want to become a physician assistant for many reasons but mainly because it does not requi
  9. There are a couple routes I could take to best prepare myself to become a PA and I'd like to know your opinions. A little bit about myself: 1. Currently a senior and will be receiving a Bachelors in Biology/Pre PA Focus in Spring 2017. 2. Will be shadowing a Physician soon for the remainder of Fall and also for Spring 2017 semester. 3. I believe I have at least 3 strong letter of Recommendation when I apply. 4. Currently 3.1 GPA, 3.08 Science GPA (Still have 2 semesters left to affect GPA). 5. Took leadership positions in my Greek Fraternity as well as Community Service. 6. Person
  10. I'm currently a Pre-PA student that will be applying in the 2016-2017 application process. Below are my current stats (only missing this upcoming spring semester) and the schools I'm looking at applying to. Hoping to get some insight from others who have applied to or been accepted into PA programs as to whether or not my stats qualify me for the programs I'm considering applying to. STATS Undergrad Ed School: University of Northern Iowa, BA in Biology Cumulative Undergrad GPA: 3.67 Science Undergrad GPA: 3.43 Age at Application Time: 24 GRE scores Verbal: 155 Quantitative: 15
  11. Hello everyone, I'm new to the PA forum. Haven't seen a thread yet for the upcoming application cycle, so I thought I'd go ahead and start one. I'm sure I can't be the only one in the process of narrowing down my list of schools for next year! Just curious to see where everyone else is applying and what your backgrounds are. I'm going to do my best to stay active in these forums, because I think I can learn a lot from everybody here. This is my first time applying, and I'm sure there are people here who are re-applicants and can offer advice to those of us who are new to the process.
  12. Hey guys, I matriculated into this program last May. We've completed the first summer semester so far, and I am currently in the Fall semester here at Tech. I applied to about 7 other schools, got 4 interviews and ended up in Midland, Texas. Not going to lie, but housing is kinda expensive, water sucks and I don't know where to recycle my glass cans.. but Iooking back, I wouldn't have it any other way. Although the school is segregated from the main campus, being in Midland really helped me concentrate. There are no distractions.. not much to do. There are about 2 starbucks here, and whenever
  13. I would like to share a link to my new PA School Directory and Cost Comparison Page: 1. http://www.paschoolfinder.com/ 2. http://www.thepalife.com/physician-assistant-program-tuition-and-costs-estimated/
  14. Hello all, I used the search function and couldn't find anything relevant, so I'm sorry if this topic has popped up a few times without my notice. I'm a new graduate student - my school offers a "fifth year free" program where students can earn an accelerated masters' degree and attend courses free of charge. I double majored in Biology and Psychology and am currently doing some neat genetics stuff for the Bio program - my eventual goal is to become a Psych or Neuro PA. Between the double major and annoying liberal arts requirements, I was unable to fulfill all of the courses that mos
  15. I took the PANRE today. This is the second time I have taken the PANRE, and this time was much worse than six years ago. For preparation, I used the Comprehensive Review book, the Lange question and answer book, and the Emory CD. I have been studying almost every day since February; MUCH more than I prepared the last time I took the exam. When I left the testing center, I felt.... well, "deflated" might be a good word. I am sure I failed. I kept count of how many questions I flagged, that I wasn't "sure" about, and I am embarrassed to even share that number. Any suggestions
  16. Just finished my associate's degree. looking into a Bs program but dont know in which one should i go in. and would help me to get into a PA school after..?????
  17. In a nutshell, high-ranking school #1 is far away (across the country) from my family and my boyfriend of three years, but when I visited it I loved it there and felt like the students were truly happy and getting a quality education. This school trains PAs for work in any field. Lower-ranking school #2 is close to my beautiful apartment I share with my boyfriend, as well as to my supportive and awesome family. Unfortunately, I kind of got a negative vibe when I visited--students there didn't love the program, and it seemed disorganized and unprioritized compared to the DO program (example
