  1. Hello, my sgpa is 2.4 and I registered for organic chemistry 2 and phlebotomy part 1 next semester but I missed the FAFSA deadline so I would be paying for the class with a credit card. my new dilemma is this.. there's this technical school that offers phlebotomy for only a month and half at $2k but it doesn't count as credit which was the reason why I signed up for PHLEB at a CC(it can help my GPA). the current bill at CC with PHLEB and ORGO is around $2k but ill be missing part two of PHLEB which I can take during the summer but that's another cost since I was once told FAFSA is not offered for summer semester. so my question is should I either: #1 drop organic 2 and pay for phlebotomy in the spring and part 2 in the summer and take organic 2 next fall #2 pay for the technical school and take organic 2 next fall #3 pay for the technical school and organic 2 ( this route will cost me around $3 -$4k maybe) I will be trying to get into the LPN program spring 2021 and phlebotomy offers such amazing skills that I would love to have that under my belt for PA school. as for LPN, I work closely with LPNS so I would love to have that kind of health care experience as well ( I am CNA) but also great pay. my plan C is medical laboratory technician if I don't get accepted in the LPN program. unfortunately the BS degree in medical scientist requires a GPA of 3.0 that's why im aiming at the associate degree instead. why mlt? the job looks fun, great science classes = boost my science gpa and higher pay than what im doing right now CNA. I already have 3 years worth of HCE and I would have PHLEB as my other set of HCE. my goal in general is obtain awesome skills, be financially stable and boost my PA application. unfortunately because my GPA is so low my options are pretty limited at least in my area. what im lacking in my application is my GPA. im not financially stable to take random hard core sciences without leading to a career, because what if im not competitive enough? then I could end up with no backup.
  2. I am currently trying to register for my courses for the Fall and am running into a problem. For my major, the school only requires one semester of general organic chemistry. I have looked at several PA programs to see their requirements and it only stated that you need organic chemistry, but do not specify if it is one semester or a whole year of organic chemistry. Please help!
  3. Wondering if anyone else had the unique experience and am in bit of a pickle? So I'm trying to input my grades from my undergrad for CASPA but my issue is that for my senior year of undergrad my school switched from a quarter system to semester system. Now trying to put this in CASPA it only lets me put in one or the other. I've ordered and received my official transcripts for clarity but it doesn't specify or put them under one umbrella. I want to just copy word for word what it says on my transcripts and leave it be but what if I'm wrong and need to convert to semester? I've contacted CASPA directly and told me to convert the units??? What does that mean?? They also told me to call my school. I called my school and they had no idea what I was talking about, I got transferred to an answering machine. I think this is a pretty unique situation. I was considering professional transcript entry to just get it over with but I don't want any mistakes on it. Especially in this kind of situation. Thoughts? Should I just copy everything exactly it says on my transcripts?
  4. I’m currently attending a quarterly-based credit college and get 3 credits in some of my crucial prerequisite classes. All the pre-pa programs I’ve looked at say something along the lines of “Organic Chemistry - 3 semester hours or 4 quarter hours” but my college only gives 3 quarter hours for a class like this. I have no idea what I’m supposed to do. If my college gives 3 hours when I need 4, how do I get that additional hour? So confused!
  5. Hello, this is for any BCM students out there. I wanted to know what a typical semester looks like at BCM. For example, what is your schedule? How many breaks do you get per semester? I am part of an organization that invited Mr. Carl Fasser to speak to us about BCM. He mentioned something about having a cycle 8 weeks of class, 1 week of testing, 1 week off over and over. I wanted to know how this worked. I want to get married before I start PA school so I wanted to know how I could manage my time. I know there are many people out there studying for PA that are married, so I think it is possible. Are there any married women who could share their experience or give advice?
  6. Hello, this is for any UTMB students out there. I wanted to know what a typical semester looks like at BCM. How many hours per day at you at class, or just what your schedule looks like? How many breaks are there? I want to get married before I attend PA school. I know there are people out there who are married, so i think it is possible. I just want to know the type of schedule to see how I could manage my time. Also, is there any married women out there who could share their experience or advice?
  7. Hi, I am planning to apply to PA program at MDC and wanted to know what the typical schedule for a day student is. I am a mom and I was a little bit worried to see in the application documents that a day student shift is from 8a-8p... Is this correct? What is a typical semester like? Thanks!
  8. Some PA programs conduct their curricula in quarters as opposed to semesters. Can someone please explain the difference between the two systems; are there any advantages or disadvantages. Has anyone had any experience with the quarter system?
