carriagada Posted October 31, 2015 Share Posted October 31, 2015 Hi, I am 25 years old and work as a microbiologist/analytical scientist for a pharmaceutical company. My B.S. was in biochemistry with a final GPA of 3.0. I am interested in applying to PA school, but understand that with my GPA and situation, I would require impressive HCE to have a fighting chance. With that said, I am seeking to submit an application at least one full year from now for the following fall. So my question is this- as someone that is not a nurse, EMT, what-have-you, and balancing a full time job during the application process, how can I gain experience? It seems that most jobs require some previous certification or hours that directly conflict with holding a job. I would be willing to quit and accept a new position if the salary could cover my bills for the time being. If (in a beautiful world) I got into PA school, i would of course no longer work. But I cannot take that risk until then. Can someone please advise me on this? I would love to take the first concrete step! Thanks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
