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
I am starting PA school in June, and am currently taking general biology 1 (ending in May) and working part time. (This course isn't a prereq I'm required to complete). However, if I dropped it, I would get a "W". I have heard different opinions on what to do before school starts (i.e. relax, family, friends, vacation, leisure reading, brush up on your A&P, etc.) It has been 5+ years since I've taken anatomy, physiology, and micro. I'm concerned whether or not I should spend the rest of my time before school reviewing that material since I'm kind of rusty...and DROP my biology course?
The school I've been accepted to has a difficult pharmacology course(faculty and current students have confirmed the difficulty) . In my interviews, one faculty member pointed out that students who have been out of school for a while before starting the program (like me), tend to struggle. She recommended I take some classes especially Pharm to stay sharp, but finances and my situation have made that impossible. I still have 3 months before school starts and was wondering of anyone knew of a good text book or study materials to help prepare me for pharmacology in PA school. thanks
