What type of schools should I apply to with these stats


Recommended Posts

Undergrad University: 


- Merrimack College (4 semesters), GPA= 3.95c and 3.90s, Health Science major


-University of Massachusetts Amherst *Commonwealth Honors College* (5 semesters when done) , GPA = 3.7c (hopefully will go up and 3.66s GPA, Biology Major


-Key classes: 


(A) - Biology 1 


(A) - Biology 2


(A) - Gen Chem 1 


(A) - Gen Chem 2 


(A) - Anatomy 1 


(A) - Anatomy 2 


(A) - Organic 1 


(B-) - Organic 2 (A- in orgo lab)


(A) - Physics 1


(A-) - Microbiology 


(B+) - Statistics 


(B) - Calculus 


 


I'm worried about the downward trend after I transferred schools, however UMass was much more difficult than Merrimack and I still feel like I'm doing well at UMass, just not as well as I was doing


 


Extracurriculars: 


- Anatomy 1 tutor 


- EMT-B (just started but should have over 1,000 hours before applying 


- Biology 2 study group leader (kind of like a tutor job)


- 100 hours volunteering at Rehab clinic


- 40 hours volunteering with middle schoolers working on science workshops after school 


- 20 hours volunteering at a medical supply packing company 


- Work experience as sales associate and delivery driver 


 


I know I need shadowing ( plan on doing in the summer) .... Is there anything else I should add? I want to take biochem over the summer because I have no time for it during undergrad, but I'm sure I would have time to do more vounteering if needed (maybe ER?)


 


Also, which types of schools should I be looking at with these stats? (More selective or less selective programs?)

Every single PA program to my knowledge are selective lol. It is nothing like applying to undergrad.

 

With those stats you should have no problem getting multiple interviews. Your PCE however will be on the more average side. So my only suggestion would be to continue earning PCE hours. Yes, more volunteering should suffice. 

 

 

PS...this belongs in the pre-pa section :)
