  1. Wondering about more applicants at Brenau University PA program. Applied early in May and have an interview on August 31st. Anyone else hear from or schedule an interview with them?
  2. Hello! I thought I would get the forum for the SIU application started! Has anyone had trouble filling out the supplemental application? There is no option to choose "Summer 2022".
  3. Hi everyone! This is my first post so be forgiving if I don't have proper forum etiquette lol. So I am extremely nervous to apply this cycle, 2021-2022, because I feel as though my application is not going to be that strong. Here's what I have (keep in mind that I am a junior in college, so I have some more classes to take): cGPA: 3.27 sGPA: right now I have a 3.1, but after this semester I am thinking that it will be around a 3.3 HCEs: over 2,000 as a CNA I haven't asked for LORs yet, but I am sure that those I ask will highly recommend me (crossing my fingers!). I don't have as many volunteer hours as I would like, around 50, but I am currently working on them. I am also involved on campus as an Orientation Leader, I am the President of Nature Club, the treasurer of a History club, and I am also apart of many other clubs, I am just not holding any positions in them. I don't know if this is relevant or not but I also take juijistu classes off campus. I did have some mishaps happen throughout college, I earned a C- in human A&P, and I had to retake biochemistry. I'm not sure if I should retake human A&P to raise my grade and GPA or let it go. I am going to apply this cycle to programs that do not have a minimum letter grade, but I am honestly so worried that these schools won't even look at my application because of my GPA and my A&P grade. Any and all recommendations are welcome, thank you!
  4. This is my first time on the forum, so hopefully I'm using this correctly! I am looking for shadowing opportunities in the Raleigh/Durham/CH area of NC. Thanks!

  6. 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, CASPA hasn't calculated my GPA yet and based on what I've heard a CASPA gpa is way lower than your transcript gpa and I want to be competitive. Not to mention that I am a psychology major which is already not the usual biology/chem. My major (science undergraduate) is a 3.5. My plans were this summer to take these classes at a community college while completing classes towards finishing my degree at my usual university. The reason for this is due to COVID-19 and my school deciding to continue remote learning via ZOOM. My university doesn't have the best science professors from what I heard and what I seen (taking chem which I got an A in). I figured community college whose curriculum is already set up as online would be much easier for me to pick u in and CHEAPER of course. I say all of this to ask if it makes since to put myself through all of this in the summer if I may not get an interview based on the fact that my regular GPA is 3.0 and even if I take all of these classes and receieve a 4.0 I doubt my CASPA gpa will be raised by that much. My PCE (Paid) is 2000.
  7. I worked as a PRN rehab technician for about 3 months (roughly 20 hours a week) before I became Full-Time (40 hours a week). How do I record this change in hours? Do I make two separate entries or average the hours per week? My hours for PRN also varied each week, with weeks working up to 30 hours and sometimes only 15 hours. Do I need to record this somehow? I also do not understand how PA schools validate that the numbers of hours stated are honest. Is there some sort of validation document needed from each employer from past jobs. Any advice is appreciated, thank you!
  8. Well....Here it goes 2019 application cycle! Good luck to everyone...
  9. 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.
  10. Hey guys, I will be applying to PA school this cycle and I was talking to an admissions counselor at the PA school I am interested in going (in my home town) about my academic record/healthcare experience and how I can be a more competitive applicant. In conclusion, she recommended I re-take Gen Chem II cause I got a D the first time I took it. Some background on me is that I have a cGPA of 3.1 and I knew that wasn't competitive enough for PA school and decided to get a Master's in Science which I got a cGPA of 3.5 with a sGPA of 3.6. I figured that since I took a lot of upper level chemistry and biochem courses in grad school it would counteract my D in gen chem II. However, they don't factor in grad grades with the undergrad pre-req grades which I should've known and feel stupid that I don't so I am looking at retaking gen chem over the summer before Aug 1. Other areas of my app are very strong with a good enough GRE, over 2,500 healthcare hours and other volunteer experience. This is literally my last battle and any advice would be amazing! SO she recommended I take Gen Chem II online at UNE (University of New England) and she said I;d be able to finish that in 8 weeks. I absolutely hated GC II and I really need to pull off an A. I've never experienced taking an online class through UNE...if any of you guys have had any experience and how hard you think it would be to pull off an A that would be greatly appreciated!!
  11. Hey all! Figured since there wasn't a thread for UE started yet, I would start one! I am a current undergraduate at UE graduating in December and applying this cycle. Good luck to all! ?
  12. Hello Everyone, This is my first time posting here on the forum and was hoping I could get some direction seeing as I have already benefited so much from reading past posts. I just submitted my application for the first time. I have an overall science GPA of 3.31 and my overall non-science is a 3.47. I am 31 years old and have been working as a sonographer for the past five years at a government hospital. I could go into more stats, but my main question has to do with last year’s grades. The last two semesters I withdrew (received a W) from genetics due to my aunt having cancer. I went in with good intentions, but realized I knew I needed to take time off. I mentioned it briefly in my personal statement, but didn’t want to spend much time on it or seem as though I was trying to negate the blame. I know schools look for an upward trend, so my question is will these recent W’s inhibit my admission? Thank you in advance
  13. Hi everyone, just applied to 11 schools on the east coast. Wondering if I can get some opinions on my stats. Any thoughts are welcome! I'm an applied biology major with a focus in pre-physician assistant studies, and a minor in psychology. cGPA is 3.85 sGPA is 3.77 PCE will be about 1800 to 1900 hours by the matriculation. I've worked in a pretty intense environment at cardiothoracic surgery. shadowed 120 hours with a PA in otolaryngology. I've also been an anatomy and physiology lab teacher assistant for about a year and a half. I feel my personal statement was strong. I had plenty of help with it and I feel it reflects my skills and accolades very well. I also was a volunteer soccer coach and referee for a while. My letters of rec are coming from my nurse manager from patient care employment, the PA I shadowed, the anatomy and physiology professor that I assist in the lab, and my organic chem professor (Got A's both semesters with him in lab and lecture). Any constructive thoughts are welcome! Thanks guys!
  14. Hello! I was wondering what chemistry grades people have received and whether they were able to get into PA school with them. I have currently an A in gen chem 1, a B- in genchem 2 and orgo 1, and a B in orgo 2. Should I retake any classes? Or will I be able to get into a PA school with these grades? (Just a note my overall science gpa is 3.5). Sorry for the annoying question, but any advice is greatly appreciated, thank you! -Maylily7
  15. Hello, my name is Maylily7! I really want to become a PA and apply to PA school upon graduation. What I would appreciate is advice to secure an acceptance and the likelihood I can get into one of these programs. Also, if you have any personal admissions stories I'd be happy to hear them! I just want to know if this is achievable for me. Also, if you have any schools/programs I might be a good fit/candidate for, please don't hesitate to mention them, I'd love to check them out! Info about me: Biology major with a psychology and chemistry minor. 3.7 overall GPA, 3.5 Science GPA Graduating in May 2018, have made Dean's List 7/8 semesters (still waiting to see how I do this semester) Currently volunteering with my school's EMS unit and as of right now have about 100 hours. I don't have much health care hours but I am a certified EMT and plan to take a year off to gain experience as well as learn more about the field. Thank you for your time and advice, I appreciate it a lot! :D Maylily7
  16. 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.
