  1. I have a quick question as CASPA approaches, I volunteered sporadically at big organizations throughout my undergrad so I was never given an actual supervisor for this volunteer experiences. What should I put down for CASPA then? Like for instance, I volunteered with my friends every December with Operation Christmas Child where we would just sign up online for a time slot and show up and volunteer. I do not have a supervisor name though so I am unsure how to report this...
  2. Hello everyone, I was wondering if the ranking of the PA school you go to matters. US News has a ranking of PA schools - does anyone know whether this ranking system is a true reflection of the quality of education of the schools? Or of the quality of job offers you'd get after graduation? Thank you!
  3. I'm 38. Wet to college on and off for many years due to personal and family issues (two surgeries of my own, taking care of a very sick family member for ten years and having to work two jobs to support my parents, among other things). I also have lots of withdrawals in my history and one "F" in Physics, which I retook. I've always dreamt of becoming a physician, but due to my blemished academic history, it is obvious I'll never be accepted. I'm OK with this, and am now trying to decide among the following programs: 1) Bachelor of Nursing 2) Physician Assistant 3) Nurse Anesthetist I
  4. Hi Everyone, I have recently become interested in the Physician Assistant career. Here is some information about me. I have a BS in Biochemistry, minor in Psychology 3.78 GPA, higher science GPA (maybe 3.9). I graduated in 2007 and since that time I have been involved in research at a University and at the National Institutes of Health as a Research Assistant and Clinical Research Recruiter. I was also just offered a position as a Research Coordinator at the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. Thus, my experience has mostly been research and my interactions with subjec
  5. Hello everyone, I am new here. I am 28 years old and moving to Chicago area in the fall. I am in the middle of changing my career. I have a bachelors degree in aeronautical engineering with a GPA of 3.84 and a masters degree in math education with a GPA of 3.88. I taught middle school/high school math (pre-algebra to pre-calculus) for three years, but I want to give PA schools a shot now and I think I would really enjoy it because working in the medical field is what I have always wanted. I haven't taken the GRE yet, but I have read some review books (Princeton Review, Kaplan...) and found
  6. Hey guys, I was just wondering where (if anywhere) in CASPA I would put my experience as a Biology Lab Teaching Assistant. The only place I could think that would be appropriate would be volunteer experience. While I did not receive compensation for my semester of work, I was enrolled in a 1-credit course in which I received a grade (A) for my effort. Just wanted to see what thoughts you all had on this! Thanks!
