Hello, I am currently a freshmen at a four year university. My university does not offer anatomy and physiology with lab, just anatomy and physiology. I know that most pa schools require A&P with lab. Do you guys have any suggestions? Any help will be very much appreciated!

Is it still a 4 hour class? My A&P courses did not have specific lab days like other science courses did. We just kind of did “lab” type activities as the need arose. But the courses were 4 hours so I ran in to no problems. 

If it is only 3 hours, a lot of schools separate lecture and lab, lecture being a 3 hour course and lab being 1 hour. If a school around you does this, you could just sign up for the lab.

Thank you for your reply! I am currently attending a SUNY Buffalo and I will be transferring to NYU next semester to finish my bachelors due to personal reasons. If my prereqs cannot be met at NYU, I will most likely take them at a community college. Do you think having 3 schools on my capsa application will be frowned upon?

I had 13 schools on my application and nobody ever asked me about it.

I had 5 different transcripts and only had one school make a statement about it during a panel interview. The interviewer specifically said that since you have so many transcripts it looks bad. If you're in the military, you move from station to station and can't stick with one school. Luckily, someone else on the panel who was also in the military told her why I would have so many transcripts and I wasn't docked on it. None of my many other interviews cared, so it could just be that one interviewer.

      I just had all of my transcripts uploaded by CASPA. And, I’ve approved them, but do I have to match the prerequisites to the programs or will CASPA do that for me if I opt out? Thx

      Hey Everyone,
      I'm sure this topic has been beaten to death, but I'm looking for some advice.  My current stats are:
      cGPA - 2.96
      sGPA - 3.16 
      Last 50 Credits - 3.84 
      PCE - 4000+ Hrs 
      My AnP 1 and 2 grades are both B- from undergrad, when I didn't know what I was doing with my life. I'm wondering if I should point my energy towards retaking these two courses for A's or should I pursue a Master's program? 
       
      Thanks for all your help, really appreciate it.

      I have completed my bachelor's degree in Biology, but since I was pre-med back then, I didn't complete the anatomy and physiology course and now have to complete it at a community college. I also have a full time job and was hoping to take anatomy and physiology in a hybrid setting (online lecture with in person lab). Is this a good idea? I've been looking at schools websites and some don't care, some said "considered on an individual basis," and some won't accept it. Am I limiting my chances too much? I want to apply mostly west coast and surrounding states.  I also have to take statistics and I hope to apply for Fall 2020.
      Thanks!
