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.
It has been a little more than 2 years since Ive made the decision to become a PA. Ive been to numerous information nights where almost every program here in SoCal tells everyone that they are looking for someone who is well rounded and doesnt necessarily need to have a perfect GPA. Now that Im ready for the next step to apply, my GPA isnt the best. I have a 3.1 (still need to take one more science class), but I have more the enough working experience as an ER tech (over 3000 hrs), a second job working for a real estate agent, volunteered over 500 hrs, over 25 hrs shadowing, and tutored anatomy. I never had anything lower than a B in all of my science courses. What are my chances of getting in? I feel that the admins would focus more on my GPA and not give me a chance to explain.
