caltmen Posted March 28, 2019 Share Posted March 28, 2019 Hey so I have a B.S. in Biology. I graduated in 2015 with a GPA of 3.22 and science GPA around a 3.0. I thought I wanted to go a different route with my life and decided to take a couple easier classes to finish my degree. Since then, I got a job working in an eye clinic and have come to really love medicine and have been really wanting to go back to school, particularly something that will challenge me and interest me, tbh undergrad bored me. I have been working as an Opthalmic technician for two and a half years ( I do a range of duties, basic eye tests, getting patients ready for surgery, cross trained and will help in the OR). I want to be a PA and I know I can do the course work, I know I am smart enough and can work hared enough. I need to take one more class to meet the basic requirements of most PA programs (A&P II) I am not particularly worried about this, I much enjoyed A&P I and I know I can get an A. Do you think I have chance of getting into a PA program? I really would love to hear stories of people in a similar situation that has gone through this like me. Should I give this dream a shot? I don't know why but I feel like I need to hear that there are other people like me that have gotten into the program somewhere. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
