I applied in August but haven't heard back yet. But I thought they would not send out invitations yet since their deadline is not until 01/15/2019. It looks like they are sending out invitations from what I am reading above. For those who received invitations, did they call or email you?

Hey all, I'm currently working on my application to this PA program! I came across the Documents section on CASPA and realized that they require you to submit a personal statement. Did you all submit the same personal statement that was  required to submit for all schools, or did you make this personal statement more specific as to why you want to attend Gannon's PA program?

Also, if anyone has a phone number or contact info to the PA program and wouldn't mind sharing it I would greatly appreciate it! I've been having trouble getting in contact with the program. Thanks! ?

I submitted the same exact personal statement and for patient care hours I just uploaded my timesheets. For PA shadowing I uploaded my letter of rec from the PA I shadowed that specifically said how many hours I did. Their phone number is 8136584902 and if you want info I would email Desiree her email is herter001@gannon.edu. Good luck!!

Thank you so much!!! Did you upload only the 30 required hours, or all of your total hours?

Hey! I know Hbryan1 already answered most of your questions, but regarding this question, I personally submitted all of my hours. I just did the PCE, shadowing, and volunteering all in the same template. Hope that helps!

I took my tax return from last year and blurred out the SSN so it was an official document.. I did not submit all of my hours in total just a years worth and they still accepted it!

Did they give you a 30 minute window?? How early are you arriving? I have never interviewed at a program that does not require you to stay the entire length of the interview day.

Did anyone else notice that they require college level spanish?

This is directly from their website http://www.gannon.edu/Academic-Offerings/Health-Professions-and-Sciences/Graduate/Master-of-Physician-Assistant-Science/Admission-Requirements/: Following are prerequisites for the program and must be completed prior to matriculation:

  • Major Level Chemistry: 8 credits
  • Major level Anatomy: 3 credits
  • Major level Anatomy Lab: 1 credit
  • Major level Physiology : 3 credits
  • Major level Physiology Lab: 1 credit
  • Major level Genetics: 3 credits
  • Medical Terminology: 3 credits/or demonstrated competency
  • Statistics: 3 credits
  • Intro to Research: 3 credits
  • Psychology: 3 credits

Nothing about Spanish here... I would not have applied if they required Spanish because I definitely did not take Spanish in college lol....

Oh... no you can apply without it they will just send you an email saying they require you to take it once your application is submitted.

Sure.

Overall GPA: 3.89

Science GPA: 3.42

Patient Care Hours: over 4000 in dental hygiene

CASPer: Taken and submitted

I asked them to provide feedback so I can improve my application for next cycle and they just sent me this general attachment (which is not helpful by any sense) in the email stating that they have received over 500 applications and they can only accept 30 students.

      Hello everyone! I did not see a thread for the applications for Gannon University in Erie, PA? Has anyone applied as a post-baccalaureate student? They do have a 5 year combined bachelor's and master's program but I believe they accept a few students besides their undergraduate class.

      Hello everyone, I am currently in my second semester of my didactic year. I struggled so much my first semester and ended up having to remediate one class. I feel like I retained nothing from my first semester and can barely recall things. I get so anxious everyday over my future . I have no idea how to face my family if I do fail. Also it would really crush me because this is what I've been working towards for the past 3 years since I graduated high school.  Compared to my other classmates I feel like I know the least. Living in fear everyday is really getting to me emotionally and I don't know what to do.

      So I finally got a job at my dream hospital!! I am currently working there as a Patient Care Technician/ PCT. However, I will be leaving for PA school next year. I really want to return to this hospital and work as a PA! The problem is that getting a job at my hospital is super competitive. Is there a way for me to ensure/ increase my chances of getting a PA job in this facility in the future?
       
      (Also, what do you guys think of requesting a absense of leave instead of quitting? Can I be able to come back to the hospital to pursue a higher position?)

      Thanks in advance!

      Hi There,
      I am in the process of a career switch and I was wondering what everyone thought my chances are of getting into a PA program.
      I graduated undergrad with a BA in psychology and a BS in neuroscience. In undergrad, I tutored Biology for a year. 
      My cumulative GPA was 3.5 and science GPA is 3.1 (I got C's organic chemistry + lab, and biochemistry + lab)
      I thought I wanted to become a researcher and so I entered a Neuroscience PhD program. Though after a year I decided I wanted to pursue a clinical route (research is too lonely) and switched into a Pharmacology Masters Program. I graduated with a graduate GPA of 3.2 and have taken classes such as physiology, gross anatomy (cadaver dissection) lotssss of pharmacology classes, neuroscience/psychology courses, and a very intense Neurology course alongside medical students.
      I also graduated with 5.5 years of research experience and a thesis that is *hopefully* going to be published.
      I am currently a medical assistant and plan on doing about 3000 patient contact hours before applying to PA school. I was wondering what the chances are of me getting into a PA program even though my graduate GPA is quite low and my undergraduate science GPA is also low.
      Thanks

      There is an awesome organization called ThePAC (Physician Assistants of Color) that holds diversity events in multiple cities across the U.S. The next one will be in Detroit, Michigan on September 28, 2019. The event is a great opportunity for all three levels of the profession! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/thepac-takes-detroit-tickets-70091765357
      Pre-PAs get to talk directly to program directors from the local/surrounding region (this event will have 7), and get specific advice about their application profile from programs directly as well as experienced PA students and PA-Cs. 
      PA-S  and PA-C get to fraternize and network with each other as well as tap into resources such as job recruiters, financial advisors, and transition to practice information. 
      There are always lots of giveaways such as medical equipment, PANCE/PANRE prep, discounts on scrub companies, and more. 
      This event is open to any and everyone no matter the race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, etc. 
      If you cannot attend this event, give them a follow on IG @thepa.c or FB 'Physician Assistants of Color' so you can get notified of when the next event/location will be.
