TPA16 Posted October 29, 2015 Share Posted October 29, 2015 Disclaimer: I WANT TO BE A PA, this is not a jealousy post, I am just curious on the logistics my friend and i come from the same university Me: applied to PA 3.35 GPA, (From 2.0 --> 3.6, 3.8 ,3.7) experience as emt, dental assistant, medical assistant, pt assistant (over 1,200 hours) shadowed 3 PAs, 1 DO, 2 NP Friend: applied to DO 3.5GPA volunteer hospital for 70 hours, EMT cert but never used 27 MCAT PA school, ~ 28-40 seats DO school, 100-300 seats me: 1 interview invite and 1 rejection, applied to 15 schools (so far) friend: 2 invites, 1 waitlist, applied to 40 schools (so far) me: pretty detailed interview experience involving my healthcare credentials and motivation to become pa him: simple questions, "whats the best quality in a doc?" "what color would u be and why " I am so happy for the both of us that we both got at least one interview so far. I know he took the mcat which honestly was a crazy experience, i give him so much credit for that. and I guess thats a huge factor med schools look at. for some reason, I just feel that theres less of a chance to get accepted on my end than his. i guess the difference in GPA also goes a long way?
