Hi everyone. I submitted my application to CASPA and got verified for SHU on May 21st. I haven’t gotten any confirmation from them yet . How about you ? 

My science GPA is 4.0 and over all 3.97. I have BAS. Over 8000 hr in direct patient care . I really hope to interview with them .

do you have all the 11 prerequisites ? When I applied , on their web site there was way less prerequisite then when I start matching them in CASPA ? I am missing genetics and biochem. 

I have AP1 and 2, microbiology, organic chem , general chem 1&2, statistics , calculus, bio 1. Phycology ,medical terminology. 

I never got any confirmation that they got my application, I got verified by CASPA on 05/21. 

Any suggestions? 

Thank you and good luck everyone .

I applied and received confirmation a week ago. I havent heard anything since, though. ? 

hoping all is well! 

 

Did you get confirmation from university already ? How long did it take from the moment you got verified by CASPA to receive confermation  email from the school ? 

Do you  match all 11 prerequisites?

I am also waiting for an email confirmation. @YGrabo I think you need to have all 11 classes completed by the 10/1 deadline.

I just looked carefully , some of them are not required, but recommended. 

Upper biology class , will Bio 2 qualify ? 

I probably need to contact school for all the answers ?

thank you for your reply. Best of luck to you this year !

Perfect! 

I emailed them and they said bio 2 does not count unfortunately. They also said it has to be upper level with lab like cell bio, genetics, pharmacology etc. I was very disappointed because I'm a bio major and I went to UConn and a majority of our upper level bio courses don't have labs with them that aren't microbio or anatomy and physiology 1 +2. Our genetics course has a discussion and its 3 credits but they won't count that as an upper level bio course. Also they said they don't accept biochem as an upper level bio course.

Yep. I emailed with them back and forth and I do not have what they need . SHU want more then average PA schools . If I complete all what they are looking for , I might as well apply to MD school :).

Did they email you saying it counts? 

I have direct correspondence with the Associate Director of Grad admissions saying that Bio 2 DOES count as an upper-level science pre-requisite. This was back in early April, so they may have changed their policy. I'm glad you mentioned something because if they don't accept it, I won't be applying here.

I just emailed them my syllabus for Bio 2 and they said unfortunately they can’t accept it as an upper level bio course.

Yea, that's a shame. I spoke with the same contact who said that BIO 2 would be acceptable. I was able to get some other coursework accepted via sending in the syllabi. I guess it's hit or miss, sadly.

 

Also, does anyone know what they want to be uploaded under "clinical/professional" in the documentation in CASPA?

Hi,

I got a phone call today for an interview. I was completely sur[prised as I thought this school would not be one to offer me an invite because I have an outstanding prereq. But, I am so happy they did. I will be attending the October 5th date. 

I hope to get to know everyone else who will be there that day.

-K

Congrats!!! Do you mind sharing your stats? @PAlife91 @kotrautman

      Hey y'all so I am a sophomore in undergrad and in the process of just starting to get PCE, shadow, and volunteer hours and etc, but I am super stressed out because I am itching to start getting PCE hours except its so difficult while in school. I was thinking about becoming an EMT and working for 2 years after I graduate but I wasn't sure if being an EMT is considered PCE among most colleges, does anyone know? (I also tried to work as a caregiver over summer and that job isn't for me) 
       
      Also, I'm trying to compile a list of PA schools to apply to, so if anyone has any recommendations for schools on the east coast please let me know! 🙂

      Hi there, my name is Vanessa and I just graduated with my bachelor's in February. I am looking to pursue into a PA program but not quite sure where to start. I am currently studying for the GRE and have about 250 internship hours done at an ENT clinic with an audiologist. I'm not sure in what I am doing and need any guidance or suggestion in what to do.

      Hi!
      I'm new to this forum and desperately need the help of people who has knowledge of what it takes to become a PA! I'm a current undergrad student, a sophomore majoring in Global Public Health with a possible minor in Biology. I'm on the road to obtaining all my prerequisites, but I'm really struggling with the patient care experience hours needed. Most schools I'm viewing need 1,000 plus hours which seems insane to me. I feel like most of the jobs acceptable for direct patient care contact are things that need even more schooling, such as an MA or EMT. I've applied many places to become a Medical Scribe, or PT Aide but haven't heard back. Am I doomed to take a gap year after I get my bachelor's? I don't know how to get the needed experience without prior experience. I wrote on all my applications I'm open to complete volunteer work but still nothing. 
      Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

      I'm looking into PA school requirements and have seen that most require Human Anatomy & lab, and Human Physiology & lab. My current university (UCSD) only offers a Human Physiology lecture course. Most of the city colleges I'm looking into in order to fulfill this pre-req only offer Human Anatomy or Human Physiology as a single course of lecture and lab, rather than having separate lecture and lab courses. Do PA schools accept lecture & lab combination courses or do they want each lecture and lab to be a separate course?
