Good Morning Everyone, Yesterday I attended the re-applicant information session at UW in Seattle (March 23rd) and I would like to compare notes and find out if any questions get answered. I fell victim to the CASPA mess last fall, but I do have several areas that I can improve in. Anyways, I am going to jot down some of my notes and takeaways from the session. Feel free to critique and add some points. PLEASE call me out if I'm wrong. Academic Prereqs - STAYING THE SAME!!! :) -Consider taking recommended classes biochem genetic social science -Talk to / Shadow a PA Know roles of PA in different specialtiesThis one received many underlines for me because I work with a bunch of PAs so I did not feel the need to shadow anybody.. certainly room for improvement their. Apparently, this was a sizable area that people fell short during the interview; not clearly knowing the role of a PA in different specialties. -CASPA's Mess CASPA failed a lot of us this last fall 100 applicants were left unverified until November because they did not click the button "verify".... This is promised to be hemmed up by the hiring of 60 plus people Positive note - Allegedly, are caspa info will be retained for next year except references. Even verified transcripts will not need to be resubmitted -Spokane will be Master's only -Pay attention to current issues affection PAs and healthcare I have more minor thing. Please post what you have!
