  1. Hey everyone! Just looking for some advice/ input/ personal experience with applying to PA school. I graduated in May 2019 with a Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology with stats that were subpar at best. I’ve always known I wanted to be in medicine but struggled a lot with my science courses in undergrad. Since graduating I’ve retaken every single pre req (plus additional science classes) averaging about a 3.8 in my last 40 credits (still taking classes in Fall 2020 and Spring 2021.) I’m planning to apply in June 2021 and at that time I will have 60 PostBac credits. Im hopef
  2. Hello, I graduated last year with a 2.6 GPA and my science GPA is 2.4. I have two D's, I am retaking one of those two D at a community college ( organic chemistry) the other D is in ecology in which I may not retake tbh because I didn't enjoyed the class.

  4. Thanks for taking the time to read this ! So I graduated from university with a cumulative GPA of 3.2 and a science gpa of 2.85. I’ve been working full time as a patient care tech at a hospital to get my hours (so far I have around 1500) and volunteering as well. At this point, I understand that my stats are no where near competitive enough to get me into PA school, and retaking courses might be the better option. However, a few courses won’t raise my gpa. Would it make sense to do an accelerated bsn program instead ? It would be a significantly larger amount of credits, and I would at least h
  5. Hello everyone - I'm posting on here for the first time in hopes of getting advice from anyone about my pre-PA situation. I'll try to be brief: I was your traditional pre-med in undergrad, bio major, always jumping back and forth between going for PA or applying to med school. My first 2 years of undergrad were, irresponsible, and I paid for it with my gpa. Senior year I decided on going the MD/DO route and a mentor encouraged me to apply for a special master's program (aka postbac) to boost up my chances of admission. Didn't take the MCAT (wasn't needed) and got into a postbac. During 1s
