WolfPack14 Posted October 19, 2015 Share Posted October 19, 2015 So I applied to 5 in-state programs at the end of August. I haven't heard anything back yet, except links to the supplemental applications. I don't know what my chances are for this year, but I want to know what I can do to improve before I apply again in April. These are my current stats: Academics: Bachelor of Science in Nutrition from North Carolina State University (graduated fall of 2014) CASPA overall gpa: 3.28 CASPA science gpa: 3.54 Dean's List Last Four Semesters: 2013 Spring, 2013 Fall, 2014 Spring, 2014 Fall -Not the best, but I did have a huge upswing. GRE: Verbal: 166 (96th percentile) Quantitative: 161 (80th percentile) Analytical Writing: 5.0 (93rd percentile) Health Care Experience: Clinical Assistant: 700 hours (will go up ~35-40 hours a week) My job is basically that of a medical assistant (bringing patients back, patient hx's, vitals) but I also do a lot of hands-on things like vaccinations/flu shots, EKGs, Spirometry test, etc. Certified Pharmacy Technician: 1,800 hours (this will continue to go up ~15 hours a month) Internship under a Registered Dietician working with cardiac rehabilitation patients at local hospital: 100 hours Shadowing: Cardiology PA - 8 hours Primary Care/Sports Medicine Physician - 8 hours Primary Care Nurse Practioner - 8 hours I don't have any volunteer experience. I'd like to work on this, but don't know how much time I can devote to it. I'd want to do something long term, so I can actually make a difference.
