  1. Hello, So I need some advice. My top school is Cuny Sophie Davis but I cant decide if I should be a teaching assistant for chemistry this fall or should i try to volunteer/network at Harlem hospital for the 2 months before I submit my application end of October or should I try to do both??? Is volunteering for 2 months even worth it? For some context this fall I will be taking 3 classes, working one day a week from 9a-7p as a medical assistant in the same primary care office I have been working in for the past 1.5 years and now possibly either being a TA or volunteering in a hospital. Would either of these choices beef up my chances/ make me stand out? Will being a chemistry TA not help that much and just be a waste of my time? Should I just continue with my current volunteer position (read below)? I only have the pre reqs to apply to 2 schools this fall so anything to help would be VERY APPRECIATED. I need help on focusing my time in the crunch hours. Currently I have about 18 hours of volunteering at a speech pathology center leading a reading group for people with speech aphasia, helping them build their confidence and as a mode of therapy. My Stats GPA 3.42 undergrad BA in psychology at a well known woman’s college-ivy leage Post bacc GPA (11 classes and all the science prerequisites) - 4.00 2500 hours as medical assistant in a multispecialty primary care 30 hours shadowing an ortho PA, Derm PA, and urgent care PA Had a full time job for 3 years in business before deciding to become a PA presidential scholar at CUNY
  2. 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...
  3. Hi all How do we go about logging volunteerhours? do we estimate them or do we need to keep a record of all our volunteer positions? Most of my volunteer work is small-time stuff scattered here and there but often enough. A fundraiser here a feeding the homeless here. I don't want the experiences to come off as forced just to get hours though. So how do we log volunteer hours on applications? Thanks!
  4. For applicants with many hours of volunteer experience(500+, even in the thousands...) what types of experience do you have and how many years did it take to gain that many hours?
  5. Hi, My name is Tori and I will soon be graduating from college with a major in Biology. I took all of the necessary classes to be a PA, my g.p.a is above 3.0(although not by a lot), and I have a little volunteer experience in the health field. Since I felt like I was likely not to qualify to get into PA school (although I'm still going to try), I decided to sign up for a one-year Masters of Biomedical Science program. Now, here's my dilemma, I can't decide whether it is worth it going to a MSBS program or if I should get more work experience. Do you think that going to this kind of program will be beneficial? I plan on working and going to school so either way I am going to get healthcare experience. This program also offers an externship in the spring where I would have to complete around 120 hours. I want the best chance at getting into PA school. Also, right now I am working as an Administrative Medical Assistant at a dermatology office. I was wondering if that work counts as direct patient care? A lot of people have told me that it does, but I want to hear that from a few people who have applied and gotten into PA schooling. Thank you, and please respond soon!
  6. What would be better volunteer hours for a PA application? Volunteer at the local village Ambulance Corp? Or working with patients families in the ER or in oncology at the local hospital? Thank you for your wise opinions.
