kbarsness Posted February 2, 2012 Share Posted February 2, 2012 I am currently a junior at the University of Minnesota getting my B.S. in nutrition. I will be an extra semester because I went into college not knowing what I wanted to get a degree in. I officially decided to shoot for physician assistant after my freshman year of college. I'm worried because I still have a fairly low gpa (3.1.) I know there are many posts that come up on here about statistics from undergrads looking for feedback. I would just like someone's opinion who has been accepted or has completed pa school. I've worked as a nursing assistant at a nursing home for over a year now, I went on call this fall when I was offered a job to start IV's at a plasma center. I'm just curious as to what I should be doing? I feel that academics will almost always trump experience. I also realized that within the next two years I have many more sciences classes to take, but even with good grades my gpa will not improve significantly because I already have so many credits. Lastly, is research recommended? How much does that boost your application. Any advice is welcomed. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
