  1. Hi everyone! I’m looking to take on some more pre-PA students who need help with CASPA review, personal statement brainstorming/editing and interview prep. I’m 4.5 years out of PA school with experience in NYC and Baltimore and am a former interview committee member! Please send an email to applyingtopaschools@gmail.com for more info and pricing!
  2. I had to retake one class my freshman year, and I really do not want to waste a few sentences in my personal statement to speak about it. Although, I also understand it is best to address it somewhere. Is there another place on CASPA to discuss shortcomings on your application? I do not see a place, but I want to make sure I am not missing something.
  3. 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!
  4. Hello! I am a senior in Life Science and will be graduating spring 2019. I have a 3.411 cGPA, 3.263 sGPA. I have been a CNA in the hospital setting for 2 years and currently work as a CNA in home health and a tutor. I have 400 volunteer hours, 50 shadowing hours, myriad leadership positions on campus and though I know research has little to do with the PA field, am conducting biomedical research to learn more about the physiology behind the heart. I apply this cycle and was curious to see other's opinions on my statistics. Thank you.
  5. 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
  6. Hi, I am really interested in applying to a couple programs I became aware of a little late in the game. The deadlines are Jan15th. I am wondering if it is too late for me to apply or should I go ahead and submit an application. Penn State & Southern California University are the programs I am looking into
  7. Sooooo I took Gen Chem I and II, plus both labs (8 credits worth) at a local community college. When entering them into CASPA, do the A's add into my Science GPA? Or is it a separate category? It'd be reallyyyy nice to have 8 more A's to boost my sciences. THANKS FOR ANY HELP <3 and yes, I will check with CASPA to be sure :)
  8. Hello, I am finishing my undergrad and will be graduating with a Bachelor's in Health Science from Ohio in December. I want to apply for the cycle starting in April 2018. I have not taken the GRE yet My overall gpa is 3.4 and my science is 3.33 I'll have ~ 1500 hours PCE in April as a Medical Assistant/Phlebotomist I have 30 hours of PA shadowing and about 50 MD shadowing I'll have ~500 hours volunteering I plan to have good letters of rec and personal statement I have been researching schools that fit my profile but would love advice as this is all a bit overwhelming! Thank you!!
  9. To help you write your own personal statements, I have decided to post my own essay as an example. It is not my best writing, but it got the job done. I was offered interviews at four competitive schools and was accepted at three (I turned down the other interview). My CASPA personal statement is reproduced in its entirety on my blog, linked below. Enjoy! http://pajourney.com/2015/03/13/my-caspa-personal-statement-as-an-example/
