Hi quick question, I am planning on applying but I am somewhat uncertain on what the prereq form is needed for. Do I need to fill this out for every prereq required course? I did not attend a university listed on their comparison page.

You just have to fill it out if you are unsure if your courses will meet the prerequisite requirements. For example, I wasn’t sure if an exercise science course would count towards their preferred sciences section of the prerequisites since it’s pretty broad, so I filled out a form for that specific class.   Hope that made sense!

Has anyone received an email about their CASPA being received or processed? After filling out the grad school application I was sent a generic email that my app had been submitted but nothing specifically  from the PA program.

I submitted 5/27 and received the same email saying that they received my submission for the PA program. From what I can tell from last cycles forum they seem to be a bit slower than other programs in their application process. It appeared that no one received interview invites until October last cycle.

Hi! Was wondering if you guys put upper division courses for the preferred sciences section. It says to on CASPA, but does not necessitate it on their website. Thanks!

Hey there. Not necessarily. When it comes to preferred sciences, it’s the science classes outside of the required classes for admission. Hope that answered your question!

I am considering applying to NAU but I am a little confused, do all of the prerequisites need to be completed before Sept 1st or can you have some in progress?

Did anyone get the email that they do not meet the minimum requirements but they actually do? It scared me a bit but I know I have all the requirements so I emailed them back saying it was a mistake.

I was told that I did not meet the requirements for A/P. I then got a email back with a link to upload my syllabus for the courses. Everything worked out. It did take some time for them to get back to me (few days). Of the schools that I applied to, this program seems to be the only one having this problem regularly.

Anyone go to the NAU PA day? Just curious if it's more of a presentation or an event to speak with staff/admissions

      I thought I would start this thread since CWRU is one of my top choices! I have not submitted my application yet, but I plan to do so middle July. Good luck everyone!

      I realize that this is not the typical question, but a college professor recently commented to another student during class that a 4.0 GPA is more detrimental than 3.8 on a PA application because "they'll assume you're a perfectionist, and no one wants to teach a perfectionist". Is this legit?
      My goal in my classes has been to learn the material well so I have a solid foundation to draw from in the future when I am treating patients. I am maintaining a 4.0 GPA with a full-time course load and without sacrificing sleep or a life. I was taught to work hard for my passions and I enjoy delving deeper into subjects that interest me personally, so I'm a bit taken aback by my professor's comment.

      Hello All, 

      I hope you are doing well. I was just curious if anyone has run into the same issue with shadowing that i am in currently. So, unfortunately I dont have the connections to other PAs like some people do, so this leads to having to go above and beyond to try to find PAs to shadow. I finally found one that is willing to take me on that doesn't currently have PA students with them (I go to Gannon University and I live close to Mercyhurst University, which both have PA programs), however, they want me to pay $50 per shadowing visit. I have never heard of anything like this before. Is this normal to pay $50/per shadow experience? Or is this just a UPMC thing. Is it worth it? Or should i keep trying to find other facilities that dont require such. 

      - Zach
