kmand24 Posted February 2, 2012 Share Posted February 2, 2012 Hello, First of all thank you for even taking the time to read this. Right now I am a Senior at Penn State University. I will be graduating this May 2012 with a B.S. in Sciene, Life Science Option and a minor in Kinesiology. My GPA isn't very good, 3.02. I'm finishing up the rest of my science classes this semester, but I have gotten either A's or B's in them with a couple C's. Some adjustments to grades are pending, which will make my GPA a little higher, around a 3.1. I volunteer at the local food bank and was a volunteer EMT about 6 years ago (realized it wasn't for me). I have not yet taken the GRE. I have been browsing this forum for quite some time now, while there is a lot of useful information here I still found that I just need information regarding my own personal stats. Looking through everyone else's stats has made me quite discouraged because I am far from any of them, I fear that my dream is slipping away because of my lack of credentials. I have no direct patient contact health care experience and am having trouble finding some because everywhere I've looked you need at least a year or more of experience and/or certifications of some kind. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can get some? How did you get your foot in the door, because I can't seem to? What concerns me most is my low GPA and lack of experience. I already know I need to take a year off or so from applying to PA school because I don't have the experience, I am willing to put in the effort I just need the opportunity. PLEASE if you have any advice, information, or encouraging words I would really appreciate it. This is something I've wanted to do my whole life. :;-D: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
