Hi everyone, I really really want to be a physician assistant, but I don't have the most outstanding test scores or grades. I was wondering if you all could give me your opinion on if I have any chance at all of getting into a PA program. My overall GPA was a 3.30 and my science GPA was a 3.27. I took the GRE and got a 155 on verbal, but only a 145 on the quantitative section, and a 4.0 on the writing section. I will have 1,720 hours of healthcare experience working as a CNA by the time I am planning to apply to physician assistant programs. I also have 24 hours of shadowing PAs as experience. Please let me know if you think I have any chance of being accepted into a PA program. Also, if any of you have any recommendations on PA programs that would be best for me to apply to based on my stats I would greatly appreciate that! Thanks in advance for any and all responses!
There was a hiccup with one of my transcripts and unfortunately, I caught it too late and my CASPA wasn't completed until October 13. I had already paid for my schools and had everything completed, so my chances of getting into my schools with deadlines in September and October were shot. I have maybe 3 more schools left with November, December, and January deadlines, and I am freaking out because besides submitting supplementals, I haven't heard back from anyone yet besides one school who's deadline I had passed. Also, if in the unfortunate event that I have to reapply the next cycle, does anyone know if I have to start from scratch on CASPA and get new LORs?
