  1. Hello! I was wondering if anyone accepted into Boston University's program could share or message their application stats (gpa, HCE...), I want to know whether, if I were to apply in a later cycle I could be considered a competitive applicant. Thank you for reading this and thank you for your time, I appreciate it a lot! -Maylily7 P.S. I'll put my stats here if ya want to comment on my chances of acceptance: cGPA 3.7, sGPA 3.5, Dean's List 7/8 semesters (currently in my last semester), about 100 hours volunteering for my school's EMS. I don't have a lot of Patient care hours but
  2. Hello all! I just started thinking about PA school recently. I graduated in Fall 2015 in Biology and Psychology. I'm 23, and I'm trying to figure out my life course. I'm wondering what people on this board think about teaching abroad for a year in China before I apply to PA school. I feel like I'm young and I want to see the world a bit before I commit. Has anyone done this before? Would PA Programs look down at this for any reason? I have most of the pre-requisite classes, I would just have to take Anatomy, Physiology (the 2 big ones haha), and perhaps Medical Terminology; I would probab
  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. So I recently saw a movie entitled "Logan Lucky". It was great to see the PA profession represented in the movie by a character who ran a traveling community clinic. However, I was disappointed that when the character's name badge was shown, the title "Physician's Assistant" was displayed. I'm just wondering if anyone would have any idea of how to contact someone and who to contact about this error so we can strive to be accurately represented. I just have no idea where to start. Help!
  5. Hey Guys and Girls, I am sure most of you current undergraduates have heard of some of the better PA programs around the nation. Many of you are going to produce competitive PA school applications in the process of hunting for schools. This question is more geared towards people who have been in PA school and experienced life on the other side of PA schooling. That being said, I think the answer is beneficial to most of us undergrads. We know about programs like Duke, Pacific, Emory, etc. Their qualifications are strict and their prestige is evident. However, on the chance that admis
  6. I will be applying to PA school for the second time this upcoming April. I feel I need to prepare better for interviews and ready to answer the question why do you want to be a PA, not NP, or MD/DO? I have been researching the difference between NP and PA and there doesn't seem to be a HUGE difference so I want to make sure I'm understanding it correctly. From what I have gathered here are the differences: Nurse Practitioners can work independently of a Physician while a PA must work in conjunction with a Physician. PAs education is based more off of the medical model, and f
  7. Hi guys! I am currently thinking about applying to GW's PA program. I know on their website they want 1,000 hours of direct patient contact, so does an ER Scribe qualify as direct patient contact? If not, what sort of jobs are they looking for? What kind of volunteering can help me reach those hours without having to get certified in something else? Thanks! :=D:
  8. Hello, I am looking to shadow a PA in or around the Miami, Fl area. My schedule is flexible. If anyone can help me with this, it would be greatly appreciated! :wink:
