Hello, I graduated last year with a 2.6 GPA and my science GPA is 2.4. I have two D's, I am retaking one of those two D at a community college ( organic chemistry) the other D is in ecology in which I may not retake tbh because I didn't enjoyed the class. I registered for organic chemistry 2 to help my Sgpa but my dilemma is this.... my financial situation is starting to stress me out. I cant afford to take hard core science classes ( like I originally planned) in a degree that doesn't lead to a guaranteed career (biotechnology). so I thought of either medical laboratory technician or lpn. I thought of these because #1 cheaper and faster option, #2 mlt has always sparked my interest and #3 I'm a cna ( almost 4 years) and I work closely with a lpn. the lpn option I'm looking at is a certificate option because is only one year. my whole goal in this is to help my GPA and also have a career. I don't mind continuing to build my PA application after this but I wanna make sure if doing any of these route will help me and not become a waste of time. if you guys have any other suggestions please let me know. the biotechnology degree I can finish it in a year but what if after that I'm still not a strong applicant? then I'm stuck with another degree... no career I don't care how long it takes to become a PA! I'm 24 years old and I already have a lot of financial baggage. I want to make a smart decision
Hello! I am currently having an existential crisis and would be EXTREMELY grateful for any advice I can get as I am currently feeling very lost. I just graduated, May 2018, with my B.S. in psychology from a top 10 public university. I am currently working as a medical research assistant, with the original intent to apply for my PhD in clinical psychology within the next year or two, to become a child/adolescent psychologist. I have recently started thinking about the possibility of becoming a PA though. However, I did not complete the pre-reqs for PA school while in undergrad. My question is, would it be possible to complete these pre-reqs at a community college? This is the only way I could see this career path being possible for me at this point, as I cannot afford to go back to a 4 year university. Do PA schools look down at community college courses? Would I not even be a contender when applying? Thank you so much in advance for the help!
