  1. Hello everyone, I am new to this site and I would really appreciate if I can receive advice. I have an undergraduate GPA of 3.045 right now this is prior to my spring semester grades being placed in and I project my GPA to raise but I guess not much since I will mostly have A's and B's. I am also graduating in December so I have one more semester. What makes me nervous is that Yale requires prereq's that I don't have yet (Micro, A&P I AND II, and Biochem) but I have the statistics portion. Luckily, Yale doesn't require any labs for the prereq's. Yale's minimum GPA req is a 2.8 however
  2. Does anyone know why CASPA does not consider Developmental Biology as a science course? I thought it would contribute to science GPA. Am I missing something?
  3. Hi everyone, I know that there are a ton of posts about which route would be the best way to get to PA school but I want to get more advice/opinions for my own specific case. I took all of my pre-reqs at Rutgers University and graduated May 2017. I have shadowed an ER PA, a pediatrician and have worked as a medical scribe for over 1 year. I also recently started volunteering at UPenn as a nursing assistant. My cGPA: 3.31 and sGPA 2.89. I haven't taken my GRE yet but I plan to by the end of the year at the latest. I had my heart set on applying after 1 gap year but became very
  4. I was wondering if these courses would be factored into my science gpa or not? Psychopharmacology of Alcohol and Drug Abuse and Psychotherapeutic Medications Introduction to Public Health
  5. Hello everyone! I am in need of some feedback on where I stand with my chances of acceptance as well as my current path and advice on where to go from here. I am 23 years old and a recent graduate (May 2017) from Texas Tech University and was on the Pre-PA route. I received a B.S. in Biology along with a minor in both health professions and spanish. I finished with an overall cumulative GPA of 3.20 and a science GPA (I think...kinda confused on how they calculate this) of a 2.73. I have my CNA license, shadowing hours in multiple states within the USA at different types of practic
  6. Hi everyone! I have a question for those of you with some experience or knowledge about admissions committees or the selection process in general. Which GPA do adcoms hold in higher esteem: the BCP GPA or the Overall Science GPA? I'm wondering this because I was surprised when I got my CASPA GPAs back and saw that my Overall Science GPA is significantly higher than my BCP. Thanks in advance for any insight you may have and good luck to all of my fellow applicants!
  7. Hi guys! I'm hoping someone can give me some insight or personal advice for my current situation. So basically, I took Ochem in the spring of 2017 but failed it with a D because I was going through a tough time and a lot of stress. My mother passed away a month after spring semester started and during midterm week. Chem is already a tough subject for me because I'm more of a biology person (hence why Im majoring in BIO), but because of my situation I was having a really tough time concentrating in school. And to make it worse, my ochem teacher was a total ass and wasn't lenient of my situ
  8. Hi, I just wanted to see if someone could clarify what counted toward cumulative science GPA calculated in CASPA. I looked on the CASPA website for what counts, and I know the hard science could count. Under their "Other" classes section, it listed "Health Science". I am an undergraduate Health Science Major and I have several classes under the category of "Health science" related to my major but I don't know which ones would be considered. Some of these are Healthcare Research, Communication Skills in Health Care, and American Healthcare System. While listed under "Health Science" th
  9. Hi, College junior here looking for advice on recovering from low science/pre-req grades. Does anyone on this forum have advice for recovering from low chemistry grades? Since they're a part of many program prerequisites, I want to know if admissions will look at advanced courses etc. Since they are "passing" I don't know whether to spend the money retaking these courses, or if doing better (A) in Orgo II and Orgo lab would suffice to show that I am competent in chemistry. My stats in general bio aren't as great either - no C grades, but Bs. Will improving my oversall sGPA make any impact
  10. Obviously, biology, chemistry. and physics classes would fall under this grouping, but what about classes in fields like psychology or ecology?
  11. Hi there! I would really appreciate any help anyone can give me about this matter. I am about to be a senior in college and by my calculations I don't think I can reach the general 3.0 cumulative GPA minimum. I really have my heart set on PA school but my grades just aren't high enough. I go to a competitive 4-year university and am getting a BS in Biological Science w/ a Physiology emphasis. I have one year left and by my estimations I will only be able to reach a 2.85 cumulative GPA and a 2.56 science GPA if I were to be realistic about what I think I could get. My biggest issue with gr
