  1. Hello Everyone, This is my first time posting here on the forum and was hoping I could get some direction seeing as I have already benefited so much from reading past posts. I just submitted my application for the first time. I have an overall science GPA of 3.31 and my overall non-science is a 3.47. I am 31 years old and have been working as a sonographer for the past five years at a government hospital. I could go into more stats, but my main question has to do with last year’s grades. The last two semesters I withdrew (received a W) from genetics due to my aunt having cancer. I went in with good intentions, but realized I knew I needed to take time off. I mentioned it briefly in my personal statement, but didn’t want to spend much time on it or seem as though I was trying to negate the blame. I know schools look for an upward trend, so my question is will these recent W’s inhibit my admission? Thank you in advance
  2. Graduated in 2013 with a degree in Microbiology. I have a few questions. I didn't get into dental school and worked in a lab for some years. Started being interested in medicine. Took the rest of the required courses in(A&P and Stats) 2017. My GPA isn't great (3.0). I got into chiropractor school but I pulled my application because I was only doing it to do something. I finally decided that I would pursue medicine in PA school. I am 34 years old and I want to know if there are success stories of people with my background. Also I saw that the application asks for test taken. Should I add my old DAT scores? Am I supposed to? I did great on my sciences but my lower scores were in quantitative reasoning. Thanks for your advice!
