Thanks for posting! I am going to the interview on Sept 15th- are you as well? I hope to see you there!

 

I submitted my application a little while ago and am still waiting for CASPA to verify :(  I'm hoping it will happen before the deadline!  I'm not sure what my chances are since I know they do rolling admissions and I'm applying at the last minute.  Guess I'll just have to wait and see!  How soon after you submitted your application did you hear from Rutgers?

 

Good luck with your interview!!

      Looking for shadowing opportunities in North Jersey willing to go into NYC. I am an experienced health care professional and am HIPAA training, up to date with flu shots, PDD. Looking for one time or ongoing. Any leads appreciated!

      Monday to Friday 9-5. No weekends.
      But I’ve shadowed on Monday and they usually stay late. When the doctor is there the work seems very secretarial. Calling about results a lot of the time from what I’ve seen. There’s a PA there that’s been there for 3 years and even she seems to spend most of the time at the computer. But I will get to do joint injections and the standard pain management stuff.
      Benefits: 80k + 10k signing bonus (repaid in full if I leave within two years)
      Insurances Full
      Licensing, DEA, and credentialing; Full
      $750 CME
      2 weeks paid for vacation and sick leave
      1 week paid for CME
      Malpractice Covered with No tail (but tail seems to be required) 2 Year, 15 mile non-compete (they have 3 offices)
      Oh and they want me to start as an MA at $16/hr while my licensing is going through.
      Pretty bad huh?

      Hi everyone,
      I know that there are a ton of posts about which route would be the best way to get to PA school but I want to get more advice/opinions for my own specific case. 
      I took all of my pre-reqs at Rutgers University and graduated May 2017.  I have shadowed an ER PA, a pediatrician and have worked as a medical scribe for over 1 year. I also recently started volunteering at UPenn as a nursing assistant. My cGPA: 3.31 and sGPA 2.89. I haven't taken my GRE yet but I plan to by the end of the year at the latest. 
      I had my heart set on applying after 1 gap year but became very discouraged after I calculated my sGPA. I didn't realize that my sGPA did not meet the minimum to apply so I didn't want to spend all that money applying but end up getting rejected. 
       With that being said, I know I need to take other science courses or retake some of the science courses I received a C in. I just don't know whether I should find a post-bacc program or just take some classes at CC to raise my GPA. After reading through many posts, I have a feeling that it does not matter where you take the courses, it just depends on how much money and time you are willing to spend. I know I also know I need to gain more PCE/HCE experience to become a better candidate. And at same time, I don't want to delay applying to PA programs any longer. 
      What do you guys think I should do from here? One of the PAs who was going to write me an LOR said that I should maybe try to apply this year b/c schools like to see persistence. I'm just not sure of how to approach my situation. I was also interested in maybe being a physical therapy aide or a medical assistant but this requires a certification. Basically, I am asking for your advice on the best way to improve my application within the next year when I apply. 
      I would really appreciate your advice and help!!! I have been very stressed out lately and it would mean so much to hear from you guys/your experience. Thank you so much for taking the time to read through my situation!!!
