  1. 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.
  2. Hello! I was wondering if anyone accepted into this program could share or message their application stats (gpa, HCE...), I want to know whether, if I were to apply in a later cycle I could be considered a competitive applicant. Thank you for reading this and thank you for your time, I appreciate it a lot! -Maylily7 P.S. I'll put my stats here if ya want to comment on my chances of acceptance: cGPA 3.7, sGPA 3.5, Dean's List 7/8 semesters (currently in my last semester), about 100 hours volunteering for my school's EMS. I don't have a lot of Patient care hours but I am hoping to take a gap year and work on that. I also hope to retake the GRE to improve my score as well. Again, thanks so much!
  3. Hi everyone. I am currently applying this cycle with these stats. According to my calculations: cGPA = 3.12 sGPA = 3.23 These grades are the combined total of all my classes, including undergraduate (cGPA 2.88 and sGPA 2.96). I took post-bac classes (53 credits) and received A's in all them, which include major pre reqs required by most PA schools. For one year, I worked full time while taking courses. GRE = 309 total. 154 Quant (55th percentile) 155 Verbal (69th percentile) and 5.0 writing (93rd percentile) Total PCE ~ 4057 hours for about 2 years of working full time + per diem. I am continuing to work full time so this number will increase. Total HCE/Volunteer ~ 100 hours at a senior center Shadowing ~ 585 hours (480 of which was during work hours where I would directly work with a PA throughout my shift) Leadership role as a board member of a student association group and extra curricular's involving dance choreographer during my time as an undergraduate student. I may also be TA-ing microbology or anatomy this spring. I feel strong in my letters of recommendations and am currently in the process of trimming and editing my personal statement draft. I am continuing to shadow PA's after work now that my school semester is over, but I do not think its a good idea for me to continue taking courses since it would require a bunch of other classes to bump my GPA up even higher. Besides this, what can I do to stand out more and make myself a better applicant to offset my low GPA?

Also, if you could put the schools you were accepted into/chose to go that would be great! Also, if there is a recent thread with accepted students stats you're more than welcome to send me or comment the link. Thanks so much! -Maylily7
  8. what pa program are you in and what's your profile like? I am still an undergrad student and I would want to be (extra) well-prepared for PA school. I have looked at multiple uni's programs, but since I'm in california, I'd like to stay local. I was looking at usc's. anybody in usc's program? gpa? GRE score? HRE? curious. thank you.
  9. Hi everyone, I decided to post on this forum because I have been reading through it a lot and people seem to be very helpful! I am planning on submitting my application this week, but I want honest opinions on my stats and my chances based on all of this information: Undergrad: Harper College first 2 years, then University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) Major: Psychology Age: 22 cGPA: ~3.49 sGPA: -3.12 1st GRE: 152V, 152Q, 3.5 writing 2nd GRE: 155V, 149Q, 4.0 writing Direct patient care: 1,746 hours as clinical assistant (2 years) Volunteering: ~300 hours at a behavioral health hospital (still accumulating hours) ~50 hours from mission trip to Peru Total PCE/HCE: ~2,100 hours Shadowing: 50+ hours (ER, Behavioral Health, Gastrointestinal Surgery, Urgent Care) LOR: - Chiropractor I had previously worked for - Neuroscience professor - ER/Urgent Care PA Other info: - Deans list x3 - member of Harper College Honors Program - member of UIC Honors Program - recipient of the UIC Honors College Transfer Merit Scholarship in 2015 - recipient of Harper College academic scholarship in 2014 Schools applying to: Penn State, Carroll, Desales, Duke, George Washington University, Marquette, Midwestern (IL), Northeastern (MA), Clarkson, Ros. Franklin, Rush University, South University (Tampa), University of New England, University of New Mexico, University of St. Francis, University of Tennessee (Memphis)
  10. Hello All, I took AP statistics in high school and later received credit for it at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. Most schools are accepting this as the stats prereq, but from what I can tell- Duke does not? Any insight on this? Thanks!
  11. Below are my total stats including my GRE scores. I am concerned because my analytical writing percentile rank is just barely below the 50th percentile mark I've heard is need to be "competitive" when applying to PA programs. Taking my application as a whole into consideration do I need to retake the GRE, even if it's primarily just to get a better writing score? Degree: BA in Biology w/ minors in Chemistry & Human Services from University of Northern Iowa Cumulative GPA: 3.69 Science GPA: 3.53 Age at Application Time: 24 GRE Scores: 156 - Verbal (72nd percentile), 157 - Quantitative (67th percentile), 3.5 Writing (42nd percentile) Direct Patient Care: CNA at Nursing Home (PRN position, 2 yrs)- 1000 hours Personal Care Attendant for Quadriplegic Man (4 yrs) - 900 hours Patient Care Technician on Cardiology Unit at Hospital (2 yrs) - 2200 Total - 4100 (approximately for current total hours, still accruing more) *When I apply I'll include another year of full-time work with patients so I'll probably be around 6300 or so* Extracurricular/Research Activities: 1 year of Genetic Research Summer (3 months) of Neuroscience Research in Taiwan 1 semester of being a Teaching Assistant for Anatomy & Physiology Lab Vice President/Co-founder of still existing college ministry student organization (1 yr) Student Leader in campus ministry organization prior to helping start a new one (2 yrs) Director of Professional Development for professionally focused student organization (1 semester) Consisted volunteering at local church (2 yrs) Volunteer in In-Patient Pharmacy of local hospital (1 yr) *Have received awards for academic performance, leadership in student organization, and scientific research* Shadowing: 53 hours in the specialty areas of ER, Hospitalist, Occupational Health, & Family Practice. I applied for the 2016-17 application cycle to 8 schools and got interviews at 3 with one resulting in a spot on an alternate list. This next year I am planning to apply to the same 3 schools I've already interviewed at, as well as, 17 or 18 other programs across the country. A big part of my selection process for other programs is their total class size (I figure larger class sizes might benefit my chances of acceptance) and whether/how much they preference students based on certain state residency or undergrad schools. Any advice on whether I need to retake the GRE to improve that writing score, critiques of my plan for applying for the 2017-18 cycle, or general critiques of my stats would be appreciated!
  12. My stats are as follows: Undergrad: overall: 3.66 sci: 3.57 -graduated w/ honors. Many semesters took 2+ sciences. -awarded TriBeta research grant / wrote honors thesis. (Research 200+ hrs) GRE: V: 151 Q: 140 W: 4.5 5000 HCE in 3.5 years. All EMS. Also EMS special Ops member for 3 years 1600 volunteer 911 BLS EMT. 1500 stipend 911 BLS EMT. Supervisor EMS team used at large festivals/nightlife events. That's mostly where the other 2000 HCE came from. About 125 other volunteer hrs - Hospital volunteer, big brothers big sisters. I believe my personal statement is great. I have 47 shadowing hours - 20 in surgery, 27 in internal medicine. I am really concerned about that quant score on the GRE. It's a fluke. I got an A in college algebra and a B+ in Calculus for the Life Sciences. LORs - 1 PA, EMS boss, 2 profs. All of which really are on my side and care about me. Will I be considered a worthy applicant? Please give me some feedback.
  13. I really want to apply this year and see if I get in. My GPA is very low with a cGPA of 3.19 and pGPA of 3.09. I have 500 hrs as a pharm tech, 200 hrs as a volunteer, 50 hrs as a CNA Seeing this, I know I would have to work on my HCE 2-3 years in order to get into PA school. My question is, even if I put in the commitment of working 2-3 years and accumulating HCE, will it be worth it??? Seems like the average GPAs to get into PA school are getting higher and the average HCE among applicants are getting lower.. I am also considering going into nursing first and working a few years to get experience, raise my GPA, and pay off my undergrad loans before applying to PA school. Please let me know what you all think.
  14. I am a first time applicant to PA Schools and I'm feeling a little nervous about my qualifications. I'm hoping to apply to this next 2016-2017 CASPA cycle and I would love any input on my stats. My Stats: Cumulative GPA: 3.727 Science GPA: (I haven't calculated this yet but it should be around the same as cumulative. I made all A's/B's in sciences courses. Maybe two C's.) Undergrad Major: Nutritional Sciences Verbal GRE: 160 Quantitative GRE: 154 Writing GRE: 4 HCE Hours: 100 Hours CNA Clinical Hours (I was told some PA schools accept this as HCE) 350 Hours as CNA/PCT on Orthopedics 80 Hours as Clinical Lab Assistant 1200+ Hours as Medical Assistant to Family Practice Clinic (I really want at least 2000 hours but I'm still a little bit off.) Letters of Rec: - Family Physician I am currently working with - Nurse Practitioner I am currently working with - Undergraduate Nutrition Professor Adviser - Physician Assistant I shadowed (Potentially?) Ideal PA Schools: - SLU - Baylor - George Washington University - MSU - (And another school. Probably one from CA but I'm still narrowing my options.) I'm currently taking an additional online anatomy course to prepare me for PA school this upcoming 2017. Is there anything in my application that I need to strengthen or add? Any input or encouragement would help at this point! Thank you for the input!
  15. 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: 155 Writing: 3.0 Healthcare Experience Hours: CNA in nursing home over when home from school over summers and on breaks for 2 yrs (~800 hours) Personal Care Attendant for quadriplegic man for 4 yrs (~1000 hours) Patient Care Technician in Cardiovascular Unit of Hospital for 1.5 yrs (~1500 hours) Total = ~3300 hours Extracurricular/Research Activities: Research Assistant - 2 semesters Teaching Assistant for Anatomy & Physiology - 1 semester Neuroscience Research Assistant in Taipei, Taiwan - 1 summer (~3 months) Vice President of Campus Ministry Organization - 2 semesters Student Leader in Campus Ministry Organization - 3 semesters Tech Manager and Sunday School Teacher at Church - 2 yrs Director of Professional Development for Profession-Related Student Organization - 1 semester In-Patient Pharmacy Volunteer at Hospital - 2 semesters Schools Considering Applying To: - University of Iowa - Des Moines University - Oregon Health & Science University - University of Wisconsin-Madison - Marquette University - University of Nebraska - University of Colorado OR Wake Forest University (trying to decide which one to apply to) Any educated opinions or advice would be appreciated! Am I setting my sights too high??
  16. Hello everyone! I've been having trouble making a decision about when to apply and was hoping some of you can offer some advise. Before I ask my question, here are some of my stats: Bachelor of Science in Biology from Montclair State University cGPA: 3.33 sGPA: 3.17 HCE experience: ~ 1200 hours as a pharmacy technician (I've found only one school that accepts this but it is still a plus I believe) will have about 1500 hours as a CNA if I apply this coming April currently shadowing and volunteering at a local hospital Schools I'm looking into: Arcadia, PCOM, Albany, Le Moyne I have yet to take the GREs. Clearly my gpa is not very strong. I earned C+'s in some of my prereqs (nothing below C+) and I'm thinking whether I should retake some and apply in April 2017. The problem is, it is very expensive to retake courses since I will be paying the graduate student cost of tuition. My plan is to retake psych and gross mammalian anatomy. I know my credentials meet the requirements of some schools in my area. I think my HCE is decent, but not necessarily competitive. So, I'm very torn. I would be investing another year and nearly $5,000 just because I have a few doubts. My other option would be to only retake one course and apply in early May 2016 as soon as it is complete, Would that be worth it? Please help and thank you in advance! Also here are my prereqs. I calculated the GPA from these alone and it's a measly 3.01. BIOL 1 B + BIOL 2 B Chem 1 B + CHEM 2 C + Orgo 1 B Orgo 2 B Gross mammalian anatomy C + Human Physiology A - Psychology C + Statistics B - Microbiology A Medical Terminology A -
  17. Any chance I can get some advice? Any suggestions, comments? What are my chances? I am a re-applicant for my 3rd year now. BS: Human Biology Overall cumulative GPA: 3.02 Overall Science: 3.0 Pre-Reqs: 3.35 Last 60: 3.35 As of June 2015: ~1200 HCE. Direct Hands on EMT certified: Patient Care Tech in the ER. (insert foleys, suture removal, staple removal, venupunctures, vitals, EKG technician, fiber-glass splint applications, basic patient hygiene, wound cleaning, suction, CPR, Cardiac monitoring, etc...) I have not given up on this dream. I know my GPA is low but it is extremely hard to pull that up with 158 total credit hours. Any masters programs ANYWHERE in the country that will help? I am willing to relocate if you have any advice on your personal journey. my GPA was lower the past two cycles: 2.97 My HCE was around 300 hours Please comment with respect, thank you.
  18. Hi all, Just wanted to know if I have a realistic shot at getting into PA school. Is there anything else I should be doing to make myself look competitive? Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks! Major: Medical Laboratory Science with minors in Chemistry and Biology Overall GPA: 3.78 Science GPA: 3.68 Last 60 credits GPA: 3.96 I did not take the GRE and don’t plan to HCE: 6,000 + more (currently employed as a medical technologist) Direct patient care: ~830 hours doing phlebotomy at a rehab hospital, ~150 hours volunteering at a local hospital, ~30 bone marrow assist and preps Volunteer: Big Brothers/Big sisters, Relay for Life, Hershey Park, and my hospital volunteering as a Patient Care Aide.

  19. Hello, I am brand new here and wanting to find out as much information as I can on the Miami Dade PA program. I am wondering how competitive it is, stats, etc. Any infomation would be greatly appreciated.
  20. Finally able to post something here. Received this offer: EM - Busy ER with Trauma Center - will be progressively working with higher acuity ~98k for 2k hrs/yr (salary) - shifts are 8-12hrs Health/vision/dental 80/20 (elligible after 3 months) Malpractice paid 2.5 wks PTO/yr 401k match up to 3% (match eligible after 1st yr - can invest day 1) Short Term (after 90 days) Long Term Disability (after 1 year) No OT/CME/License/Professional Orgs/etc (They were not in the benefits summary. I will be clarifying this) Now, while I have to clarify the above, assuming it is not included (which is odd no?), what are your thoughts? Further, would it be feasible/acceptable to counter with higher salary to off-set the lack of CME (thus essentially getting the CME)? It is a solid institution (academic) and willing to train me to do quite a bit. I have an EMS background prior to being a PA, but wanted to get the consensus from those who have been around the block a few times.
  21. Hey Folks, I am new to the forum and planning on applying next fall. I am wondering if any current students, alumni, or other knowing folks might be able to take a look at my bio/stats and let me know if you feel that I am a good fit for MEDEX, and if any might have suggestions as to other programs that you think I might fit in well with. SHORT BIO/STATS: I am from eastern Washington, 25, married and have two kiddos. I have over 930 hours volunteering as a youth pastor and later leading a college ministry and campus outreach program. HCE: 5 years Navy Corpsman (work under a PA for 3 years and saw my own patients / anesthesia technician the other 2 years), 9 months Lab Assistant (Phleb, EKGs, ABGs) College: BA done in December (General Studies in Ministry and Healthcare) and STARTING sciences in January 2013 through August. I will be going full time and taking Bio, A&P I & II, Micro, inorganic chem I, intro to o-chem/biochem, Psych, and Lifespan Psych. undergrad cGPA: will be 3.0 post bach sGPA: I am extremely determined and think I can get over 3.5 in the above listed courses. If I do, my adjusted cGPA would be about 3.2-3.3. Thanks!! PS: I would LOVE to grab coffee or just chat with a current MEDEX student or Alumni if you are in the Seattle area! PM me if you have a few spare moments to coach a future PA :-)!
  22. Hello Folks! I just found this forum a few days ago and am already learning SO much. Thank you all for your discussion and input! Here is a brief synopsis of my situation and question: SHORT BIO/STATS: HCE: 5 years Navy Corpsman (work under a PA and saw my own patients), 9 months Lab Assistant (Phleb, EKGs, ABGs) College: BA done in December and STARTING sciences in January 2013. I will be going full time and taking Bio, A&P I & II, Micro, inorganic chem I, intro to o-chem/biochem, Psych, and Lifespan Psych. undergrad cGPA: will be 3.0 post bach sGPA: I am extremely determined and think I can get over 3.5 in the above listed courses. If I do, my adjusted cGPA would be about 3.2-3.3 MY QUESTION: for the 2013-14 application cycle, when should I finalize my CASPA app? Should i turn it in early (may-june) with outstanding pre-reqs in progress knowing that those grades will not be verified and calculated by CASPA? Or should I wait until mid-august when all my course work in complete? I know that earlier is very beneficial, but I also know that much of the strength of my package will come from the strong science GPA that I will be earning this winter, spring, and summer qtrs. NOTE: due to course pre-reqs my A&P II class will not be until summer qtr, this is obviously a very important pre-req. PS: my top choice is MEDEX, second is Duke, and then whichever programs I think I will have the best shot at getting in to. Hope this is not too much info, thanks for the help!
  23. Hey everyone, I'm considering Barry and didn't find any stats on the accepted students. I may have just not found it, but could some of the recently accepted or current students give me some idea about the typical accepted applicant?
