  2. Hey guys, I'm currently considering applying next year and was wondering if anyone could share their stats for getting into nova or any other school in florida, especially how many pce hours, since they don't seem to require it but I'm not sure how many most applicants have.
  3. Hello! I was wondering if anyone accepted into this program could share or message their application stats (gpa, HCE...), I want to know whether, if I were to apply in a later cycle I could be considered a competitive applicant. Thank you for reading this and thank you for your time, I appreciate it a lot! -Maylily7 P.S. I'll put my stats here if ya want to comment on my chances of acceptance: cGPA 3.7, sGPA 3.5, Dean's List 7/8 semesters (currently in my last semester), about 100 hours volunteering for my school's EMS. I don't have a lot of Patient care hours but I am hoping to take a gap year and work on that. I also hope to retake the GRE to improve my score as well. Again, thanks so much!
  4. Hi everyone. I am currently applying this cycle with these stats. According to my calculations: cGPA = 3.12 sGPA = 3.23 These grades are the combined total of all my classes, including undergraduate (cGPA 2.88 and sGPA 2.96). I took post-bac classes (53 credits) and received A's in all them, which include major pre reqs required by most PA schools. For one year, I worked full time while taking courses. GRE = 309 total. 154 Quant (55th percentile) 155 Verbal (69th percentile) and 5.0 writing (93rd percentile) Total PCE ~ 4057 hours for about 2 years of working full time + per diem. I am continuing to work full time so this number will increase. Total HCE/Volunteer ~ 100 hours at a senior center Shadowing ~ 585 hours (480 of which was during work hours where I would directly work with a PA throughout my shift) Leadership role as a board member of a student association group and extra curricular's involving dance choreographer during my time as an undergraduate student. I may also be TA-ing microbology or anatomy this spring. I feel strong in my letters of recommendations and am currently in the process of trimming and editing my personal statement draft. I am continuing to shadow PA's after work now that my school semester is over, but I do not think its a good idea for me to continue taking courses since it would require a bunch of other classes to bump my GPA up even higher. Besides this, what can I do to stand out more and make myself a better applicant to offset my low GPA?

Also, if you could put the schools you were accepted into/chose to go that would be great! Also, if there is a recent thread with accepted students stats you're more than welcome to send me or comment the link. Thanks so much! -Maylily7
  9. what pa program are you in and what's your profile like? I am still an undergrad student and I would want to be (extra) well-prepared for PA school. I have looked at multiple uni's programs, but since I'm in california, I'd like to stay local. I was looking at usc's. anybody in usc's program? gpa? GRE score? HRE? curious. thank you.
  10. Hi everyone, I decided to post on this forum because I have been reading through it a lot and people seem to be very helpful!

  11. Hello All, I took AP statistics in high school and later received credit for it at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. Most schools are accepting this as the stats prereq, but from what I can tell- Duke does not? Any insight on this? Thanks!
  12. Below are my total stats including my GRE scores. I am concerned because my analytical writing percentile rank is just barely below the 50th percentile mark I've heard is need to be "competitive" when applying to PA programs. Taking my application as a whole into consideration do I need to retake the GRE, even if it's primarily just to get a better writing score? Degree: BA in Biology w/ minors in Chemistry & Human Services from University of Northern Iowa Cumulative GPA: 3.69 Science GPA: 3.53 Age at Application Time: 24 GRE Scores: 156 - Verbal (72nd percentile), 157 - Quantitative (67th percentile), 3.5 Writing (42nd percentile) Direct Patient Care: CNA at Nursing Home (PRN position, 2 yrs)- 1000 hours Personal Care Attendant for Quadriplegic Man (4 yrs) - 900 hours Patient Care Technician on Cardiology Unit at Hospital (2 yrs) - 2200 Total - 4100 (approximately for current total hours, still accruing more) *When I apply I'll include another year of full-time work with patients so I'll probably be around 6300 or so* Extracurricular/Research Activities: 1 year of Genetic Research Summer (3 months) of Neuroscience Research in Taiwan 1 semester of being a Teaching Assistant for Anatomy & Physiology Lab Vice President/Co-founder of still existing college ministry student organization (1 yr) Student Leader in campus ministry organization prior to helping start a new one (2 yrs) Director of Professional Development for professionally focused student organization (1 semester) Consisted volunteering at local church (2 yrs) Volunteer in In-Patient Pharmacy of local hospital (1 yr) *Have received awards for academic performance, leadership in student organization, and scientific research* Shadowing: 53 hours in the specialty areas of ER, Hospitalist, Occupational Health, & Family Practice. I applied for the 2016-17 application cycle to 8 schools and got interviews at 3 with one resulting in a spot on an alternate list. This next year I am planning to apply to the same 3 schools I've already interviewed at, as well as, 17 or 18 other programs across the country. A big part of my selection process for other programs is their total class size (I figure larger class sizes might benefit my chances of acceptance) and whether/how much they preference students based on certain state residency or undergrad schools. Any advice on whether I need to retake the GRE to improve that writing score, critiques of my plan for applying for the 2017-18 cycle, or general critiques of my stats would be appreciated!
