I am seeking an opportunity to shadow a practicing PA of any specialty that is located anywhere in the Boise/Nampa/Meridian area of Idaho. I am Junior at Boise State University studying Biology.I am open to learning all summer/fall and really want to get some hours in before I apply later next year. If you have any information on potential shadowing opportunities, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello everyone, question for pre-PA, current students, or graduates. For volunteer hours and non-healthcare employment hours for some schools, I was wondering how to go about recording and documenting them? What is the best way to go about this. Especially for the non healthcare hours, I imagine this is just any job we’ve had in the past. And so what do you guys recommend in terms of going back to see the hours we’ve completed and also going forward with future hours, and how to keep track of them all. Really, for any experience hours in general. Also, I believe we will submit this information on the CASPA, so how does that work? Do we just put the organization, hours, and description? Or do we need some sort of sign off on it , with someone higher up proving that we did it? Let me know , thank you guys!!
I'm currently a sophomore in my undergrad and I plan on applying for the 2022-2023 cycle, at the end of my junior year. I'm working on my application slowly throughout the year so I'm ready to submit early in the cycle (mid-May) and get a head start for programs with rolling admissions.
However, my university won't release my second semester junior year official transcript until mid-June. That means if I submit my application mid-May, I'd only be submitting my official grades up until my first semester of junior year of college. Should I wait for my official transcript to be ready and submit mid-June, or should I go ahead and submit mid-May and update CASPA once my second semester grades are ready?
I'm so torn on what to do. I'm afraid if I only have 5 semesters worth of grades on my transcript, I will be seen as a weak applicant. On the other hand, I'm afraid if i don't submit early I'll potentially lose some interviews. I know once I submit my official transcript, the grades I update won't count towards my GPA, but I'm not worried about that because I'll most likely have around a 3.75 gpa regardless.
Any advice is appreciated!
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 everyone! I’m looking to take on some more pre-PA students who need help with CASPA review, personal statement brainstorming/editing and interview prep.
I’m 4.5 years out of PA school with experience in NYC and Baltimore and am a former interview committee member!
