  1. Does anyone know what the pre-requisites are for this school?I haven't seen them listed anywhere.
  2. Hey everyone, The first half of the interview cycle for 2017-2018 is winding down, and I'm wondering how I can make myself a more competitive applicant during the next CASPA cycle on the off chance that I don't get accepted anywhere this year. I've already met the pre-reqs for my schools of interest, but I'm not sure whether or not I should continue to take additional upper division science courses or simply focus on acquiring more HCE and volunteer experience. Currently, I have 3.98 GPA, a 4.0 science GPA, an MA in Cultural Anthropology, 600+ volunteer hours (many of which were overseas), and approximately 2300 HCE hours as an EMT. I've been waitlisted at 1 school and have yet to receive any additional interviews (most likely due to the fact that I didn't submit my apps until the end of August/mid-September). During the next semester, I could enroll in O Chem II and Developmental Psych while working 36-48 hours per week and volunteering occasionally, however, this course of action would require that I take out additional student loans. On the other hand, I could simply acquire more HCE hours and volunteer at free clinics in my area. Any thoughts on which course of action would look better to PA school adcoms? Thanks in advance for any and all advice!
  3. I have already taken a Physiology course at my 4-year university, but have not taken the Physiology LAB yet. I was planning to take Physio Lab at a community college. Are PA programs particular if I took the lecture course and lab at different schools? Thank you very much!
  4. Hi! Could someone answer a question about PA school prerequisites? I'm an undergrad at the University of Florida, and I'm not sure whether to: 1) take organic chemistry 1 & 2 and then biochemistry 2) take "fundamentals of organic chemistry" and then "fundamentals of biochemistry" 3) just take organic chemistry 1 The "fundamentals" classes are not pre-med science classes, but I know most PA schools don't even require organic chemistry and biochemistry, and many only ask for "1 semester of organic chemistry or biochemistry". Does anyone know which of these options would be the best idea? I have registration tomorrow and I'm a bit desperate. Thank you!

  8. I am currently getting my things together for the 2013 application year. I was a biology major in undergrad (grad 2010) and took everything except Microbiology and Anatomy. I took physiology and did well in it, but gross anatomy was only for nursing school students at my university. They only let other undergrads in if there were extra spots (which there never were, of course). I'm not one of those over zealous "I was an accountant now I basically have to take 30 credit hours online and get a whole new degree while I work" people. I'm wary of taking online courses for my pre-reqs but I'm between a rock and a hard place. The microbiology I've got planned to take in the fall, but I need to take anatomy. The PA school I'm applying to wants either 3+ hours of phys and then 3+ hours of anatomy for a minimum of 6 hours+, or A&P I and II. I have the phys done like I stated earlier, but am having a hard time finding a decent place to take JUST anatomy for credit for a reasonable price. I do not need a lab. The only thing I've found is UC Berkeley extension program that costs over $800 http://extension.berkeley.edu/catalog/course497.html Any suggestions for anything better? [btw, the other school I'm applying for in the area does not have anatomy and micro as pre reqs because you take them the summer you start with them- 27 month program vs. 24 month program]
  9. Hi all. Thanks in advance. I am moving to Philadelphia in a month and am looking toward applying to PA schools in the future. I have a bachelors degree in psychology but will need to make up a number of the science pre-requisites. Does anyone have experience or information on acquiring such credits in the Philadelphia area, or how to go about acquiring such info? Thanks so much
  10. Hi everyone, This is my first time applying to PA school, straight out of undergrad (I'm 22). I have been rejected by 3/5 schools so far, and although I want to remain optimistic about the other 2, I also want to be realistic. I'm thinking that one of the major reasons I have been rejected is due to my GPA (3.13 cumulative, about 2.75 science). If that is the case, I know I could benefit by retaking some classes (slash taking some more classes such as genetics and biochemistry that would increase my range of possible schools to apply to), but I'm wondering what the reaction would be by adcoms to an online course. I'm working 2 jobs and unless I quit one and rearrange the hours of the other, it's just not possible to add in a class or two. I live in MN and the University of MN offers both an online genetics and an online biochemistry course. Would this be a feasible means to obtain those pre-reqs and possibly boost my GPA? Any advice would be appreciated! Thank you so much! -Laura
