Have you all heard? They are starting an online version of this degree at Yale next year. Well, it will have the Yale name but your classes are online and your clinicals are outside of the Yale system. Same price, same degree, and no need to move to New Haven!!! I can't think of an easier way to get an Ivy League degree!

If you think that is going to be an "easy" way to get a degree you are mistaken. The discipline required to put in a 60 hour a week program from home is tremendous. The YALE PA program holds students to a very high standard and distance students will tackle the same examinations. Additionally, the PA program at yale received over 1000 applicants for a class of 40. Will likely expand numbers a bit for distance program but the number of applicants will increase dramatically because of this new innovative program.

      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, CASPA hasn't calculated my GPA yet and based on what I've heard a CASPA gpa is way lower than your transcript gpa and I want to be competitive. 
      Not to mention that I am a psychology major which is already not the usual biology/chem. My major (science undergraduate) is a 3.5. 
      My plans were this summer to take these classes at a community college while completing classes towards finishing my degree at my usual university. The reason for this is due to COVID-19 and my school deciding to continue remote learning via ZOOM. My university doesn't have the best science professors from what I heard and what I seen (taking chem which I got an A in). I figured community college whose curriculum is already set up as online would be much easier for me to pick u in and CHEAPER of course. I say all of this to ask if it makes since to put myself through all of this in the summer if I may not get an interview based on the fact that my regular GPA is 3.0 and even if I take all of these classes and receieve a 4.0 I doubt my CASPA gpa will be raised by that much.
      My PCE (Paid) is 2000.

      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?

      I know Yale has an online pa program, what is a competitive applicant for Yale online? Also does anyone else have an online physician assistant program? 
       
      Thank you

      Hi everyone I figured I would start this chat for accepted class for now until an official Facebook group is made. CONGRATS! Can't wait to meet all of you.

      If you have 3 people send letters of rec to CASPA but a school only requires 2; does CASPA randomly choose 2 out of your 3 to send to that school that only requires 2? That would sort of be unfair if you had 2 PAs and 1 professor send in LORs, and lets say the school requires: 1 from a professor and 1 from a PA... what if CASPA randomly chooses the 2 from the PAs. Then it looks like you never got one from a professor? Am I missing something here?
