Memberships on CASPA

Recommended Posts


Would it be bad to put that I was a member of a "pre-medical" professional fraternity on my memberships in the application? I'm obviously concerned they'll question my motives, since I'm also using an MCAT score. I've just decided that I prefer the PA profession over MD/DO after my experiences shadowing and working in the hospital.

What will make your intentions clear is your personal statement and the answers you give in your interviews. First, be sure your PS shows you want to be a PA and not just any type of medical provider. Next, you will likely be asked why you want to a PA over an MD or NP in an interview. Telling an adcom you have shadowed both and like PA for whatever reasons will assure them of your motives.
