Hi Everyone,

I am applying to PA schools this year. Here are some statistics about me

3.0-3.1 Science GPA

3.5 Cumulative GPA

About 700 Volunteer Hours

60 Shadowing hours of PA (3 different specialities)

12 Hours of Shadowing a NP

2,500 Direct Patient Care Experience as a CNA

1st generation student (first to go to college)

Honors student, along with being a peer mentor.

How many schools do you think I should apply to?

Sadly, my science GPA is low because I received a C+ in genetics, and a D in ochem, now retaking Ochem and more than likely will receive anything in the C Range.

All my other pre-req's are all A's and Maybe 1 B or 2.

Attended Pre-PA conference.

Have not taken the GRE yet, but severely worried.

Input? If you have been participating in cycles, please include some of your stats and the outcomes.

There is an entire thread (2 actually!) one for accepted students and one for applied but not yet accepted.  Both of those will more than thoroughly answer your last request and would be a good place for you to start browsing to determine how many programs you may need to apply to.

It's not always about how many programs you apply to, but applying to the RIGHT programs.

      Hi everyone!
      My name is Nicole Rodriguez and I am a recent graduate from Florida International University double major in Biology and Natural & Applied Sciences. I am currently working as a medical assistant working on my patient care hours and will be applying to PA schools the next cycle. I would like to have some guidance on my personal statement and would appreciate any advice! I may be reached out via email Nicole.rodriguez3860@icloud.com
      Thank you for your time!

      I am a member of AAPA and maybe I am unfamiliar with the website, but I want to make the most learning from the site and using it.
      How do PA-S or PA-C use it? As a Pre-PA how can I use the site and its resources to help?
      I appreciate it!

      Hey guys my name is Geena and I'm a PA at a primary care in Philadelphia. We are currently hiring scribes and medical assistants (no experience required- we will train). This is a great opportunity for pre-PA's who need experience hours! Message me for details 🙂

      I saw a thread started somewhere but it wasn’t connected to this board. 
      I feel like we are slacking this year! Where is everyone?? 😂
