Should I apply to PA school?

Recommended Posts


I am super nervous about applying for PA schools in the next upcoming cycle, I keep hearing how hard it is to get and am wondering if I am an ideal candidate and was just looking to get some feedback? I should also note that I am trying to stay in the NY metro area to help save money and to help out my family. 


My overall GPA is 3.445

My science GPA is around 3.5

I have about 350 hours of HCE as an MA

About 70 hours of volunteering

About 50 hours of shadowing in various settings


I also feel confident in two of my letters of recommendation but am wondering if absolutely need one from a PA for admission or if one from a Dr. will suffice?



All responses appreciated!
