I wanted to know if anyone could add any input on this;
I had requested a PA for a letter of evaluation. He was happy to agree to give one. I also had sent him a copy of my resume just because I thought that was the appropriate thing to do.
last week at work him had mentioned two things... he had brought it up to me that I didn't have my GPA posted on my resume and asked if if I was planning to put it on my resume. he also started asking me things like "do you want me to just not address GPA at all then?". So, for the copy of the resume I had sent to her, I didn't put my GPA in because I didn't think it was going to be helpful (my undergrad is a 3.35 which is not competitive) The whole purpose of sending him a 1 page resume was so that he could know a little more of what I have done in undergrad; like, have a little more amount of information of who I am outside of scribing. (I've been a scribe for about 9 months; about 5 of those months have been heavily involved with this particular PA, so although we haven't had many conversations personally its not like I am a stranger to him
The other thing that he requested is if I had personal statement finished. I will sincerely admit, I am quite behind on the application process as my personal statement still has work to do; I told him it's still being written. He asked if she should have a summary of it or something like that so he has more details to flesh out his evaluation letter.
I told her I would email her about the GPA issue and the personal statement summary because he was asking out loud in front of the other doctors and employees in the nurses station and I was a little shy to answer. I don't know why, but I wasn't expecting him to ask those questions.
So here is what I was asking:
1. Should I have 3.35 on my resume at all? (I was a public health major)
2. Is giving a personal statement/summary super necessary for you LOR evaluators? Because I really have alot more to do on my PS so I'm not sure how I can make a good summary in a short amount of time to give him; as well as the other evaluators.
Question geared towards PAs in the oncology and rheumatology private practice realm - Can a PA be the only provider on site when our nurses are infusing our biologic medications (ie TNF inhibitors, B cell modulators, etc). Some of these medications are technically classified as "chemotherapy." Not sure if there needs to be DIRECT supervision from an MD for this type of infusion/procedure (or can they just be a phone call away). Would this also vary state to state? Any insight would be wonderful!
Hello! I thought I would create a new group discussion since the upcoming cycle will be opening in about 2 months. This will give an opportunity for anyone to ask questions early in the application process and hopefully all the way through the interview process.
Hello! I know this post is stereotypical and repetitive and I apologize, but feedback would be very appreciative 🙂 Stats are below, should I apply this cycle? Or wait till next year? I’m currently on my first gap year.

If it helps, during college I have about 120 hours as a volunteer crew member for my school’s EMS unit
If I’m forgetting something, let me know! Again thanks so much, I know how annoying these posts can be sometimes and I appreciate you taking the time to read this 🙂 have an awesome day!
