  1. Hi! I was seeing if anyone has taken classes at either UNE online or Doane's University, specifically Orgo Chem I and II and biochem. I've heard mixed reviews about both. How are the classes set up and how are we graded and are they set lectures? Does anyone know how it's different during COVID? Do PA schools accepts these classes from these schools? Thanks!!
  2. Hello, I am having a lot of trouble trying to narrow down schools to apply to. Where I currently live, most of the schools nearby I cannot apply to because of my stats so I am seeking out of state options. I am ending my sophomore year so I still have another year before I can begin applying (and another year to continue to boost my GPA). Any help would be appreciated! GPA currently: 3.426 ( My last semester has not been added in still and my science GPA would be similar) I am not taking Ochem 2 or biochem but I have planned/taken genetics, cell bio, microbio, ochem 1, 2 semesters o
  3. Hi guys. So currently, I have just finished my junior year of undergrad. My current but yet horrendous stats are cGPA: 2.75 & sGPA: 2.40Unfortunately, all the pre-req's I have take that are required for PA school, I have received Cs in. I really want to become a PA, but I know how hard and competitive it is. I was wondering if anyone could help me out with what to do next. I am an EMT and currently working as one as well to get the minimum hour requirement in for clinical experience; but with an EMT license I do wish to further become an ER Technician. My plan for the summer was to not tak
  4. Hello, my name is Maylily7! I really want to become a PA and apply to PA school upon graduation. What I would appreciate is advice to secure an acceptance and the likelihood I can get into one of these programs. Also, if you have any personal admissions stories I'd be happy to hear them! I just want to know if this is achievable for me. Also, if you have any schools/programs I might be a good fit/candidate for, please don't hesitate to mention them, I'd love to check them out! Info about me: Biology major with a psychology and chemistry minor. 3.7 overall GPA, 3.5 Science GPA Graduat
  5. Hello I just wanted to ask if anyone has any thoughts on schools that are provisional and on probation. I was wondering if I get into a program such as this... does that mean that if they don't attain their accreditation status before i graduate, all the work you do is for nothing? Does anyone have experience or insight into this situation?
  6. I need some advise on what to do with my time for the next 5 months. I applied to PA schools during the 2016-2017 cycle and received multiple rejections and one interview. I am still waiting on hearing from about 9 schools but I don't want to sit idly in case I do not get an acceptance. I want to start preparing for the next application cycle. I applied with the following stats: overall: 3.54 science: 3.28 BCP: 2.98 GRE: Verbal: 159, Quantitative: 152, Verbal: 4.5 HCE: 1400 hours through scribing I have since gained another 300-400 hours of experience by scribing and have recently started a m
  7. Hello! I'm a rising senior in high school, and the ELMPA program at Quinnipiac is definitely my top choice as of right now. I heard that they accept only 25 of the 800 applicants they received last year, so I'm trying to get some help to maximize my chances of getting into their program. My gpa right now is 4.27 weighted, and I am within the top 5% of the class rank. I have volunteered at a hospital and have accumulated around 300 hours and counting. I have also participated in various programs that have to do with health care, and other community/social organizations. I also take additional c
  8. If some experienced PA's could help me out? I am deciding between PA schools of which one is a masters program and one is a certificate program with optional online masters of medical science. I originally thought the masters program was the obvious choice for me, but after speaking with some other health professionals the question was proposed. Do I need it? I am a certified athletic trainer and have a masters of kinesiology in sports medicine. Gaining the PA-C from a certificate program, would my previous masters degree hold any weight when applying for jobs, or if the standard moves to
  9. Hey guys, I matriculated into this program last May. We've completed the first summer semester so far, and I am currently in the Fall semester here at Tech. I applied to about 7 other schools, got 4 interviews and ended up in Midland, Texas. Not going to lie, but housing is kinda expensive, water sucks and I don't know where to recycle my glass cans.. but Iooking back, I wouldn't have it any other way. Although the school is segregated from the main campus, being in Midland really helped me concentrate. There are no distractions.. not much to do. There are about 2 starbucks here, and whenever
  10. Hello all! I am interested in what the feedback would be from you guys as to if I am a good applicant. I have been experiencing a lot of difficulty getting into PA programs because I do not have this GPA or this GRE score. I am just curious if I am ever going to get in. I have a BS in Biological Engineering that i graduated from last May with a 3.168. The major problems I have experienced is that my science GPA is a 2.9. I know this is low but I took the majority of my biology/chem/physics classes my first two years of college. I had originally gone into biological engineering thinking tha
  11. I am a student and graduating in July 14. I have a unique situation where I was forced to take off a year with only 4 rotations left from graduation due to an academic suspension (not grade related). I am interested in venturing into a surgical field in the south. Has anyone encountered or know of a student that had a challenge with the hiring pocess due to a similar scenario. I have excellent letters of rec from preceptors but am concerned that my tainted past will haunt me. Ideas/suggestions/advice?
  12. The American Association of Surgical PAs will again offer a meeting designed only for those interested in or actively apply to PA School.

  13. Hello, How are you all?I just finished my first year of college at Four-Year University and due to financial issue I have to go to a community college for a year and then I will transfer to a Four-Year University again. Will that be okay or will it look bad on my application for PA school? Will the PA schools accept community college credits?
  14. Hi all. I start PA school in the fall. My husband and I want to have a baby and would rather not wait until PA school is over (despite the rigorous program), as I will be 32 at that point (and we want 3 kids!). For those women who are/were pregnant in PA school, is it better to have a newborn during the didactic or clinical portion? We will live 30 minutes from school and hire a nanny or do daycare during the week. Your thoughts/insight are much appreciated
  15. So I'm trying to narrow down where to send off my applications and, based on the admissions requirements and what-not, I think I may be a pretty good fit at LM. But then I'm looking at googlemaps and it's located in the MIDDLE OF NOWHERE. I mean, Knoxville is the closest city at three hours and some change. Can anyone tell me something good about Harrogate?? Does anyone know anything about this school and it's reputation? Do they merit moving to the middle of nowhere? If I get accepted, will I have to learn to hunt and forage for berries?
