  1. 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.
  2. Hello all! I took the GRE in May and received a 153 on quant (49%tile), 152 verbal (54%tile), and I did pretty bad on the writing- 3.0 (15%tile). I was wondering how bad it would hurt my application to have a 3.0 on writing. I have ~2700 relevant PCE hours, over 1,000 HCE hours, 3.68 cGPA, 3.53 sGPA both GPAs are an upward trend. Should I be too worried? I definitely plan on taking the GRE again if I don’t get accepted this year. Anyone have experience applying with low GRE and still getting accepted? thanks!!
  3. Hey everyone, I'm currently preparing for the upcoming application cycle, and have been anxious about my chances due to a couple of lower grades on my transcript. While I have all As in my biology courses, I got a C and C- in Organic Chem 1 and 2 respectively. I didn't retake them because I got an A in Biochem, and I know many programs will take Biochem OR Orgo. But now I'm starting to worry that these grades will stand out and that I may be "weeded out" of the application pool. I plan on applying broadly, but would like any input anyone may have. Thanks in advance!
  4. Hi everyone, I have officially applied to one school with my first attempt GRE score (got a flat tire on the way AND got rear ended - talk about stressed and then sitting for the exam) v: 145 , q:140 w: 4 I am able to retake the GRE but the school that i have just applied to (Grand Valley State in MI) will be past their deadline so unfortunately they will be getting my first attempt score. I have read that GVSU's focuses only very minimally on the GRE scores ( which in my case i really hope so) My overall GPA is 3.0 - Few semesters really hurt my overall - some due to family de
  5. I need some advice to make sure I don't sell myself and our abilities too cheaply. I'm about to graduate in a couple months and have interviewed at 2 family practices, both of which offered me a position. One is just not in an area I want to live, but offered 85k. I thought it was reasonable, along with the benefits, but felt I would overall be happier closer to the city (Portland, Or). The other is in the metro in an area with a cost of living at 125% the national average. 4 days/week including 2 Saturdays/month. Today they offered 65k base salary with 10% productivity bonus
  6. This is my first post here and I am hoping from some help from this awesome community. I graduated in 2013 with my B.S. in biology. Overal GPA about a 3.4 and Science GPA is a 2.9. I have taken plenty of upper level biology courses such as genetics, anatomy, cell biology, and micro biology. A's and B's. However, my chemistries are almost all C's. I believe thats what brought down my science GPA. I recently got my EMT-B certification and am looking for work. Recently got turned down from 10 PA schools I applied to and, needless to say, I'm feeling a bit lost. Realistically, can PA school st
  7. Hi everyone, This is going to be a bit long, so please bear with me. I am currently an undergraduate student going for a B.S. in Psychobiology. After completing two years of undergrad, I have earned an incredibly low 2.7 cumulative gpa. My science gpa is shamefully a lot lower; admittedly, I barely passed most of my science pre-req classes with Cs. These first two years have been a complete mess and there are no excuses. I had no goals, there was no motivation in school and, in effect, I didn't take my courses seriously. I knew that my attitude would bite me in the end, but for some reason
  8. So im a senior at Ohio state university with a semester to go and a 2.4 gpa. my gre scores were 140 verbal and 143 quantitative. however, i have been a lead pharmacy technician at a highly recognized hospital for the past four years and was wondering my chances of getting into any pa programs. I no people are tired of answering these types of questions, but im getting panic attacks wondering. Please help! and any information on bettering my chances besides retaking classes would be helpful. im currently at the max credits for college.
