Crusading Angel Posted October 28, 2015 Share Posted October 28, 2015 So I know that some PA programs has a section where they say you should take these classes, but you don't have to. Obviously not taking it won't hurt you (much, if any at all). However, how much does it help you if you do take the recommended courses? I think it's pretty obvious that getting a good grade (A) will be good and place you on the very far end of the positive spectrum. However how would your application compare to another person's application. Let's say person X had good grades (3.5 gpa etc.) but did not take a recommended course(s) (Nutrition, Ochem 2, Genetics etc.). Let's say another person has the same GPA as well (3.5). However, person Y took the recommended course(s) but still had the same GPA as X. Would admissions find person Y to be a little bit of a better applicant because they took the courses? Or are these recommended courses just there for your own good? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
