  1. Hello everyone, I am new to this site and I would really appreciate if I can receive advice. I have an undergraduate GPA of 3.045 right now this is prior to my spring semester grades being placed in and I project my GPA to raise but I guess not much since I will mostly have A's and B's. I am also graduating in December so I have one more semester. What makes me nervous is that Yale requires prereq's that I don't have yet (Micro, A&P I AND II, and Biochem) but I have the statistics portion. Luckily, Yale doesn't require any labs for the prereq's. Yale's minimum GPA req is a 2.8 however, CASPA hasn't calculated my GPA yet and based on what I've heard a CASPA gpa is way lower than your transcript gpa and I want to be competitive. Not to mention that I am a psychology major which is already not the usual biology/chem. My major (science undergraduate) is a 3.5. My plans were this summer to take these classes at a community college while completing classes towards finishing my degree at my usual university. The reason for this is due to COVID-19 and my school deciding to continue remote learning via ZOOM. My university doesn't have the best science professors from what I heard and what I seen (taking chem which I got an A in). I figured community college whose curriculum is already set up as online would be much easier for me to pick u in and CHEAPER of course. I say all of this to ask if it makes since to put myself through all of this in the summer if I may not get an interview based on the fact that my regular GPA is 3.0 and even if I take all of these classes and receieve a 4.0 I doubt my CASPA gpa will be raised by that much. My PCE (Paid) is 2000.

  4. I have never heard of this or anyone doing it but is it possible to have your own practice or maybe a joint partnership with another PA or Doctor and work every other 4 months out of the year? I'm not lazy... just thought I would dare ask a crazy question. Thanks!
  5. Received this email from AAPA today: Dear AAPA Member, Let's strengthen the voice of the PA profession in the U.S. Congress. AAPA’s Political Action Committee, PA PAC, would be one of the nation's strongest healthcare PACs if each AAPA member contributed $25. It is essential that we grow PA PAC in order to build even greater bipartisan support for the PA profession on Capitol Hill. Congress’ mid-term elections are fast approaching. The outcome will shape the healthcare agenda for years to come, including critically important issues for the PA profession, such as: Removal of federal practice barriers for PAs Medicare modernization Complex chronic care coordination Telehealth Behavioral healthcare, including treatment for opioid addiction. With your help, AAPA can achieve its legislative goals. In less than two years, the Nurse Practitioner PAC grew from $80,000 to over $437,000. During the first two quarters of 2014, the NP PAC raised $189,568, compared to $43,433 raised by PA PAC. With just a $25 contribution from every AAPA member, PA PAC’s growth would exceed the majority of federal healthcare PACs, including the NP PAC. That’s why it’s so important that you donate to PA PAC today. Your support matters! Thank you in advance for your generosity and active involvement in AAPA’s political advocacy. Sincerely, Justin Anzalone, PA-C Chair, PA PAC Board of Trustees American Academy of Physician Assistants - 2318 Mill Road, Suite 1300 - Alexandria, VA 22314 | 703.836.2272 | Unsubscribe | Opt-Out
  6. How often are the meetings? Are they monthly? What types of things you discuss? What are the consequences of skipping them? Are they useful? Do you hate them?
