sergiogo Posted November 17, 2015 Share Posted November 17, 2015 Hi everyone,I was trying to search for this discussion but I didn't find anything.I didn't make it into any of the programs I applied to (applied to 3 total; interviewed at 1) and I'm trying to figure out how to improve for next year.These are my main stats:Science GPA: 3.49Overall GPA: 3.32HCE: Medical Technologist for 3 yearsVolunteer: Interpreter and Administrative assistant at Free Clinic, where a PA practicesShadowing: ER PA for 7.5 hoursGRE: 149 verbal, 159 quant (I know)The way I look at it is that my application was good enough to get me an interview. So I know that I'm moving on the right track. I had some pending courses when I applied so that might be why some of the programs didn't even get me an interview.At my interview, I honestly was a little nervous and I don't think I expanded on my answers as much as I wanted to. I prepared for traditional and situational questions but I still felt like I was put on the spot. So I know I have to improve on that somehow.I'm thinking that I should shadow more PAs to really get a good perspective on the profession. I was also thinking of getting a CNA license so that I can do actual patient care at the free clinic like triaging and assessing patients.Also, regarding my essay, should I keep it as is? Or should I update it and mention that I'm reapplying?I would really appreciate the feedback. Thank you! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
