  1. Hello everyone, I am new to this site and I would really appreciate if I can receive advice. I have an undergraduate GPA of 3.045 right now this is prior to my spring semester grades being placed in and I project my GPA to raise but I guess not much since I will mostly have A's and B's. I am also graduating in December so I have one more semester. What makes me nervous is that Yale requires prereq's that I don't have yet (Micro, A&P I AND II, and Biochem) but I have the statistics portion. Luckily, Yale doesn't require any labs for the prereq's. Yale's minimum GPA req is a 2.8 however
  2. I was wondering has anyone submitted the Caspa for Yale online and what are the three essays that they require like and what are they over? Also has anyone taken the Casper and what are the questions like and is it as difficult as people make it seem? Trey
  3. Hello all! I am currently trying to decide between two schools and I need some assistance as I am very conflicted. One program is in person and it is 26 months and starts in July, but I would have to move out of state to attend and would graduate in May 2021. The other program is Yale's newer online program and would start in January and I would graduate a year later in May 2022 but I would be able to stay in state and not move at all since the didactic year is online. The actual cost for the programs is almost exactly the same, the only real difference is the graduation dates, location, and t
  4. Hi there! I am a Yale On-Campus PA program applicant and wanted to get some opinions on Yale's curriculum, specifically its research piece. How do current students and alumni feel about the research component? Was it beneficial? Did it increase opportunities and/or improve your clinical abilities? Thanks for your help!
  5. Hi-- I am applying for this coming application round. I recently took the GRE: 162 verbal 5.5 analytical 153 quantitative If it wasn't for the quantitative score, I wouldn't be inclined to retake the test. However, I am wondering if I could still get in to my schools of choice. My overall GPA and science GPA are 3.93, I graduated valedictorian of my department, and I have several years of experience working as a clinical dietitian, as well as public health and policy work. I also have good letters of rec and tend to interview well. I don't want the GRE score to be the one thing that
  6. Hi there, I’m a 2015 Yale graduate in my second-year of the two-year Teach For America program, teaching bilingual chemistry and physics at the high school level. I teach in a historically underserved community where 75% students are low-income, 54% are English Learner, and the majority are Latin@ and/or undocumented. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done, but the most rewarding thing I've ever done. Since starting teaching, I’ve realized that the way I truly want to impact historically underserved people is through affordable healthcare as a mid-level practioner, i.e. PA. I was in the pre-
  7. Hello Everyone! Thank you for taking the time to read my post. I’m new to the PA Forum, but I desperately need some advice! I am fortunate enough to have been accepted to the dual PA/MPH (Master’s of Public Health) program at Yale and the PA program (MPH is pending) at Emory. However, I’m having a very difficult time deciding between the two so if you have any advice, have gone to either school, or have even been in this position before, I’d love to hear what you have to say! Brief summary: My goal is to be a PA, but my interests are currently in infectious disease and the prevention of s
  8. Hello, I am a 20 year old first generation college student currently in a Biology BS program with a minor in Chemistry at a well-known NYS college. Like many of you, I hope to be accepted to a PA program when I graduate but I don't have much guidance throughout the process. The PA that I shadow went through this process many moons ago when it was not so competitive so he doesn't really know how to help me become a more competitive applicant. My stats are: -3.65 cumulative GPA (expected to be a 3.7 by graduation to achieve my goal of Summa Cum Laude) -sGPA: 3.7+ with my best grades bein
  9. Hello! I am currently comparing University of Colorado-Denver and Yale. Anyone from either program or anyone in general have any insight? Both are incredible programs and I am just looking for any thoughts/advice please!! Thanks!
  10. Hello everyone, I just want to encourage all practicing PA's and PA students to email both Robert Alpern, MD (Yale SOM dean): robert.alpern@yale.edu and John McCarty (ARC-PA executive director): johnmccarty@arc-pa.org if you oppose Yale's proposal for an online PA program. I have emailed both and received a prompt response. ARC-PA is meeting before the end of the month and we will know soon if the program was approved. The reasons I oppose the proposal: 1. It will tarnish our reputation as one of the most rigorous programs in the health sciences 2. It will jeopardize clinical site
  11. Interesting article: http://www.nhregister.com/general-news/20150310/yale-to-launch-online-physician-associate-program So basically the same Yale program, but online for the didactic year. Obviously pending accreditation. I'm not sure how I feel about this.... I know personally, as interesting as it is, I need to be in a classroom when I'm learning, not just for attention but for the interaction between professors and students, and this sort of option could never work for me. Thoughts?
  12. I heard it takes a long time to put this application together, so I went on CASPA to get a head start for next cycle. I plan on applying May 2014. My question is, are we only aloud to start on our application when the cycle opens? On CASPA it said the current application is for 2013. Thanks!
  13. My program recommends that we buy a sphygmomanometer with interchangeable cuffs (Peds, adult, large adult). The only one I can find is 150$ + (link below). Does anyone have a cheaper suggestion or is this the going rate? http://uniformdiscount.com/Welch-Allyn-5098-30-Gold-Series-DS66-Gauge-And-Multi-Cuff-Kit.html?gclid=COCG_52AsrcCFRJp7Aod_xAANQ
