  1. Hello, I am a high school senior that is interested in becoming a PA. I‘m currently in the process of applying to colleges and would like to know what major would be the best for me to pursue. For a little bit of background, I had originally planned on majoring in Biology because I read that it was the most common route taken for PA school( I’m also quite fascinated with biology itself). However, after researching again, I now plan on getting a BSN so that I'll have a backup job in the medical field just in case everything doesn't go as planned. I've read that majoring in Nursing unfortunately doesn't look good because PA schools will question the student's commitment to the PA profession. Personally, I am certain that I want to become a Physician Assistant but I also want to be able to secure a job in the medical field after receiving at least my bachelors. It also seems as though the medical-related jobs that I could get with a Biology degree wouldn't be very patient care related, which is something that I wish to have in a job. Overall, I feel as though I would prosper in a more health-centered major because it relates more to my passion. So ultimately, my questions are: 1. Between majoring in Biology and Nursing, which is the more advantageous route to take in order to become a PA? 2. Is there any true disadvantage to having a BSN when it comes to applying to PA schools? 3. Are there any other majors that would be a better choice to study than Biology or Nursing? I would greatly appreciate it if anyone can get help me out!
  2. Hi everyone, is there such thing as a pre-pre PA? lol jk I'm just curious how everyone is calculating their overall science GPA (sGPA). The reason I am asking is because the variety of program requirements that I have looked at all require different science pre-reqs, so when I am seeing people write their stats in, I'm just curious how its all amounting up when every program is different. Thank you in advance for any and all input!
  3. 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
  4. I've been accepted to a great PA program which I will start in May. I know there is probably no way to totally prepare for school, and they will teach you everything you need to know, but I have great tuition benefits for undergraduate and graduate level classes at my current job and I can take classes for next to nothing. Any current students, if you could retake or wish you had a better background in any one subject before you started, what would it be?
  5. Hello, I am finishing my undergrad and will be graduating with a Bachelor's in Health Science from Ohio in December. I want to apply for the cycle starting in April 2018. I have not taken the GRE yet My overall gpa is 3.4 and my science is 3.33 I'll have ~ 1500 hours PCE in April as a Medical Assistant/Phlebotomist I have 30 hours of PA shadowing and about 50 MD shadowing I'll have ~500 hours volunteering I plan to have good letters of rec and personal statement I have been researching schools that fit my profile but would love advice as this is all a bit overwhelming! Thank you!!
  6. So while the jury is still out for this application cycle, I was denied an interview at my preferred school and I will need to register for spring classes very soon if I'm going to work on improving my GPA to attempt the next cycle. I have been working as an RN for over 4 years, a majority of my pre-reqs are from prior to nursing school (so next cycle, some may need to be retaken just because they're too old) and I've got a couple C's in my older sciences. Most recent sciences have been almost all A's (including O-chem) so I think I've demonstrated much improved study habits. All in all I feel pretty certain on what I need to do to make myself a better candidate and improve my chances, mainly improve GPA, cast a wider net and stay well ahead of my deadlines. I also plan to take the GRE which will greatly expand my options. My question is, would it be more beneficial for me to, for example, retake my Chem 1 with a grade of C a long time ago or take a more advanced science like O-chem II? I'll only have spring and summer next year to take classes before I reapply so I want to make the most of that time. Also, first time using this forum which would have likely helped me during this cycle but hoping to get it right this time. ;)
  7. Good evening all, I was just wondering but how would CASPA calculate science GPA with a MPH degree. I know that the course title Public Health is calculated as other science, but how would it go about applying to all the courses. Im just wondering if anybody had an experience in apply to CASPA following an MPH.

  8. Hi! I am hoping someone can help us! My daughter is trying to figure out what science class to take in her senior year that would be beneficial to her when applying to a PA program. Her options are AP Biology, Molecular Biology or Organic Bio Chem. What are your thoughts? Thank you!
  9. I have just been accepted to PA school at the University of Colordo - Denver and I was wondering if anyone actually referred back to their textbooks from undergrad? Basically, I am wondering if they are worth keeping (and moving across the US) or if I should donate/sell them?? I figure my anatomy book is worth keeping but what about various chemistry textbooks? Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks
