RoseQueen Posted June 26, 2018 Share Posted June 26, 2018 Hey guys! So I'm going into my Junior year and I'm a little worried about where I am right now. I have a 3.21 cGPA and a 3.33 sGPA. I have three retakes as well so I'm sure my "actual" c/sGPA on the caspa won't be as high, but I'm aiming for about a 3.4 cGPA and 3.45/3.5 sGPA come app time. Stats wise I've just started volunteering at the ER at my local hospital where I anticipate getting just about 200 hours this summer. I'm also looking into other ways of building up my patient care/hospital hours over this summer and throughout the school year and breaks. Anyway my question is this: how do PA schools look at volunteer hours? And is there any judgment on the time span of hours (like say gaining a lot of hours over a short period of time)? How many hours should I be shooting for? Also do programs look at the overall trend on the GPA? I have a slight upward trend (Freshman: 2.94 Sophomore: 3.21). Thank you much in advance!
