I am someone who is pursuing PA school after being out of school for a number of years. I am borderline for the 10 year mark for prerequisites and plan to retake the common courses to open my application eligibility pool. The problem I am running into is that a lot of programs require you to complete prerequisites the December before matriculation. I have at least two courses I would need to take in the Spring to be up-to-date in all coursework. This means I would need to sit out this application cycle due to the December timeline. Does anyone know where I could find a list or have some suggestions of schools who accept students conditional of courses being complete at the time of matriculation rather than by December? I know Penn State, Emory, and a few others do this. Do you know of others? clarifying part: I have most of the prerequisites done already except for OChem and Chem 2. I am just retaking because I am so borderline or the 10 year time limit many programs have.
Hi There, I am in the process of a career switch and I was wondering what everyone thought my chances are of getting into a PA program. I graduated undergrad with a BA in psychology and a BS in neuroscience. In undergrad, I tutored Biology for a year. My cumulative GPA was 3.5 and science GPA is 3.1 (I got C's organic chemistry + lab, and biochemistry + lab) I thought I wanted to become a researcher and so I entered a Neuroscience PhD program. Though after a year I decided I wanted to pursue a clinical route (research is too lonely) and switched into a Pharmacology Masters Program. I graduated with a graduate GPA of 3.2 and have taken classes such as physiology, gross anatomy (cadaver dissection) lotssss of pharmacology classes, neuroscience/psychology courses, and a very intense Neurology course alongside medical students. I also graduated with 5.5 years of research experience and a thesis that is *hopefully* going to be published. I am currently a medical assistant and plan on doing about 3000 patient contact hours before applying to PA school. I was wondering what the chances are of me getting into a PA program even though my graduate GPA is quite low and my undergraduate science GPA is also low. Thanks
