As a recently graduated student going into her gap year, I have a question for those who have been in my same situation. My undergrad GPA is below the normal average for an admitted student into a PA program. I am planning on enrolling in post-bacc classes in order to meet some pre-reqs for certain schools, and just to raise my GPA overall and hopefully show admissions committees that I have grown since my first couple years of college (the years that hurt my cGPA). But, how do you all do it? I am planning on being a CNA, but I can't work day shift due to classes that normally occur during daytime hours. I've thought about trying to get 12 hour shifts so I have a few days off during the week to sneak some classes in. I can work PMs or nights, but I'm worried about being too exhausted going straight from a night shift into classes the next day. Community colleges cater to working students by offering online and night classes which would be super helpful, but do many PA schools look down on community college coursework? I'm stressing out thinking about how this is all going to play out so any words of advice or personal stories would be super appreciated. Thanks in advance and good luck with applications!!
I graduate with my BS in Psychology this May, but have only completed the minimum of prerequisite classes (in good - but not amazing - academic standing). I've decided to take an extra year (Fall/Spring) to bolster my academic profile and increase HCE before applying. I'm currently debating between Physics 1 + 2 and Genetics + unknown Spring course. Important factors to consider: - Physics 1 + 2 would be NON-CALCULUS - Genetics (and the other Spring course) - would be a 200-level class (since it's being taken at a CC) Any suggestions on what I should do here? I know some schools will make an issue of taking Genetics at a CC (as it is traditionally taken at a university), but I also imagine taking a non-calculus based physics would evoke similar responses (again, at a CC). Thanks in advance gang
