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!

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

      Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well, like many of you I am waiting to hear back from PA schools to see if I will be invited for an interview. I wanted to seek out constructive criticism and advice on how I can improve my chances of getting an interview not only for this cycle but next cycle if I don't get in. (a little side note I just recently switched from the D.O pathway to the PA route my Junior year and I am extremely happy with the decision but I am behind on the hours as I just switched pathways this winter.)
      Heres some stats from my application
      -Accumulative GPA: 3.62
      -Science GPA: 3.76
      -GRE: 313 Overall / 157 Verbal / 152 Quantattive / 4.0 Writing
      -Shadowing: 4 MDs and PAs for about 20 hours. (this was a struggle as I just started PA shadowing right before the pandemic but hopefully I can add to this in August!)
      -Healthcare Hours with direct patient contact: About 500 hours with about half being a nursing assistant and the other half being an assistant athletic trainer. (Another weak point but I should be close to 700 hours by the time interviews roll around and I could definitely pass 1000 before I matriculate if accepted)
      -Volunteer Hours: A little bit over 100 hours
      -I have a good amount of extracurriculars and leadership roles along with published research (which I am hoping will make up for some of the weak areas of my application)
      Again I appreciate any advice on how I can improve my chances for this cycle and/or next cycle if I (knock on wood) don't get in this year. I wish everyone on here the best in their applications and their journey to becoming a practicing PA!
      Best Regards,
      Shane

      I‚Äôve already been gathering my PCE/HCE by volunteering as an EMT, working as a Scribe,¬†and working as a DSP at a home for people with head injuries. So, volunteering at an animal shelter would simply just be my ‚Äúgiving back to the community‚ÄĚ addition to my application. I love animals so this would¬†be really satisfying for me to do in my spare time, when I‚Äôm not working with humans lol. Would schools look at this at all, or is it just a waste of my time that I should be spending working at a soup kitchen or something? I¬†understand that a soup kitchen would probably be better and I plan on doing something like that once covid is over but for now my friend is starting up her own animal shelter and I would love for this to count for my application and make me look better to schools.

      Hi I was wondering if I should include grants such as the Pell Grant or Texas Excellence Grant as a part of achievements in the CASPA application? It is not necessarily a scholarship, I believe it can be included as an award. Has anyone ever done so?

      Hi! Does anyone know of any programs that once required the GRE and are now no longer requiring it this year due to COVID? I wanted to apply to a few more schools but haven’t taken the GRE. Thanks!

      So I am currently trying to figure out my credits and classes for the applications but I am having a lot of trouble matching courses. My college was a private college that went by trimesters. My classes were 3 credits each and they did not offer general biology. Instead the sequence went Zoology, Cellular Biology, and Botany and they were 3 credits each. So, if a program requires 4 credits of General Biology, does this mean that those three classes will not satisfy the requirement? Will I have to retake the classes somewhere else then?
