  1. Anyone know if UC San Diego extension courses ( https://extension.ucsd.edu/courses-and-programs/biochemistry) count towards most PA school pre-requisites. I need to take Biochemistry and Genetics over the summer. First time applicant and these would be my two in-progress courses. UC San Diego's prices are pretty good from what I see. Unfortunately most schools that I e-mailed regarding pre-requisites say they can't provide info on if the course would satisfy their requirements at this time. Otherwise does anyone have suggestions for where I could take online classes that count
  2. Has anyone had any interview experience with schools asking applicants questions from subjects they took most recently to that date? Almost like a quiz or comprehension of the recent course? Wondering because I feel like I wouldn't be able to recall any academic material under that much pressure. TIA!

  4. So I am currently trying to figure out my credits and classes for the applications but I am having a lot of trouble matching courses. My college was a private college that went by trimesters. My classes were 3 credits each and they did not offer general biology. Instead the sequence went Zoology, Cellular Biology, and Botany and they were 3 credits each. So, if a program requires 4 credits of General Biology, does this mean that those three classes will not satisfy the requirement? Will I have to retake the classes somewhere else then?
  5. I’m currently attending a quarterly-based credit college and get 3 credits in some of my crucial prerequisite classes. All the pre-pa programs I’ve looked at say something along the lines of “Organic Chemistry - 3 semester hours or 4 quarter hours” but my college only gives 3 quarter hours for a class like this. I have no idea what I’m supposed to do. If my college gives 3 hours when I need 4, how do I get that additional hour? So confused!
  6. So I started applying to schools and I honestly applied being hopeful, wishful, and a little naive. I've heard mixed reviews about retaking some courses (General chemistry and biology) and people say it's a good idea but then others say take other sciences courses to increase my science GPA. I got C's in them (rough freshman year start) My other backup plan was to get a masters in public health to maybe increase my chances of getting in seriously need some advice! Thanks in advance!
  7. I am wondering if it's smart to apply again to a school you interviewed with but were rejected? Would they just remember my bad interview and not try again?
  8. I have one concern about one class that I withdrew from. During sophomore year, I withdrew from Physics 101 due to other intense courses and I was trying to get my GPA from Freshman year mistakes. Withdrawing was the best decision since I recovered and I now have a strong GPA. In my last semester, I am currently taking Physics 101, but I am concerned about the grade I will get. One of the mentors I have, posted something regarding withdrawn classes and stated that you'll need to prepare to discuss the reason for the resign (not a problem) and receive an A in the course. My concern here is with
  9. So i'm trying to manually enter my classes on CASPAs transcript entry and I was wondering if anyone else was a bit confused what to list as the "subject" for their classes they took. For instance, I took a freshman seminar class and a senior seminar class. What would I list those two classes as? There are no subjects titled "seminar" on the drop down menu.
  10. Hello everyone, I have recently decided to portray a degree in ESS that is designed to get (help) me into PA school. However, before I made this choice, I was pursuing a BS in Computer Science. To make a long story short, I failed my second CS course and my Calc 2 course because of personal and educational issues. These two courses are not required for PA school, but I'm worried if my grade in them will reflect on my acceptance into a PA school. I'm wondering if anyone has experience this? What do I need to do? How can proceed to becoming a PA?
  11. Hello, I hope this finds everyone well. I am now 38 and decided on a career change and thus have been taking prerequisites at a pretty decent community college in NYC, which I am almost done with. I have several issue at the moment: 1. Every time I look at the program of my choice website, a new prerequisite appears; last year they were different than this year so there are always classes I am missing and can not apply 2. I want to work with patients already and a phlebotomy program is opening up and thinking of registering but it is not cheap and do I really need it? 3. I have about 65 h
  12. I have to take either survey of orgo or orgo 1 and 2 for my major. Would just taking survey of orgo be okay for my PA school app? or should I take orgo 1 and 2?
  13. Hey everyone! So I was wondering if it looks bad to take a pre-req for the 3rd time? In my situation, I took orgo 1, a&p2, and psych100 during my 1st or 2nd year. I got C's in all 3 so I took them over again my junior or senior year and got all B's (very close to A's, but I'm coping.. haha). Now that I have graduated from my university I am taking the pre-reqs that I didn't take at my university at a community college. Now I know that A's look better than B's so I would like to take that class again for the 3rd time... and for sure I will push myself to the A I want. However..
  14. Hello all, I have a question regarding the EMT-B course. So a community college near me offers a summer EMT course, starts in late may-early august meeting twice a week (14 hours). My dilemma is that I am traveling out of the country for a week during the course so I would miss 2 days. I have emailed the instructor and he said that I would still be able to complete it as long as I kept up on my reading/quizzes. My question is this: how much is covered in 2 days worth of class? (8am-3pm) has anyone completed the course while missing a few days or should I just wait to take the course in th
  15. Hey guys, I have a question for any current or former PA students. The program that I got accepted to does not require me to take any additional classes, but I would like to spend some of my time waiting taking one class that would benefit or help me the most. My options are a generals biology course (ironic because I have already taken biology 2 and microbiology as well as ap1 and 2) intro to organic and biochemistry (I have taken basic and general chem as well as an applied chem which touched on organic) human heredity and development (a genetic scours online) any advice
  16. There are two year long anatomy courses that are taught at my college. I was wondering which one was sufficient for the application for most PA schools. The first one is Anatomy and Physiology 141 and 142. Although it's only a 100 level course it's probably three times as hard as my general biology course and it covered all of the organ systems. I was wondering if that's acceptable for PA schools because I can't imagine that PA schools would require the upper level course because of the difficulty. At least at my school, the only people who take the advanced anatomy and physiology class are Ki
  17. Some PA programs conduct their curricula in quarters as opposed to semesters. Can someone please explain the difference between the two systems; are there any advantages or disadvantages. Has anyone had any experience with the quarter system?
