KPPA15 Posted October 11, 2015 Share Posted October 11, 2015 Hi, I was a frequent user of this forum about a year ago, long story short......a lot has went on and now PA is back in my thought process. I applied in the 2013-2014 cycle to two schools and surprisingly had 1 interview, but was wait listed. I didn't receive an invite to the other school. My GPA was almost the bare minimum..it was around a 3.01 I believe when CASPA calculated it (it was actually slightly higher because I retook courses but CASPA averages them), my science GPA was even lower. I had around 1,000+ hours of patient care experience as a nurses aide. I also shadowed PA's about 100 hours. I graduated in December 14 and have been in an accelerated BSN program since January 15. I complete this program in May 16 and am doing very well (No C's so far and around a 3.6 GPA). With all of my friends applying for the second time and getting multiple interviews, I can't help but to think I would have a shot if I applied again. I have taken science courses like pharm & patho..and I have gotten A's in all of my clinicals so far. My question is: do you know a list of schools that take your second degree GPA (I know there used to be a few?!) & also do you think it would be worth it to apply again? This program is about 80 credit hours and I should graduate with at least a 3.5, and my last degree was CASPA calculated 3.01 and that was with about 120 credit hours. I also have continued to work as an aide ever since, and have a lot of hours clinical experience. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
