I would not say that the majority of my pre-reqs are online, but I did take a couple courses online and was accepted.

Usually the best practice is to contact the school directly and ask them if a course will meet their requirements. The only case where I found an online class may not be applicable is when an in-person lab was required for something such as chemistry.

I took all of my prerequisites online with the exception of o. chem, applied to one school and got in.

Also took almost everything online while working a full tome and part time EMT job. Got multiple interviews and multiple acceptances.

I've also been wondering the same thing- I'd like to keep my schedule as open as possible and take classes like psych and stats online so that I'm able to work as much as possible. I know to take all lab courses in person but does anyone feel like taking some pre-recs online was something that was looked down upon during the application process?

I took all my psych classes on line while I attended NSU full time for undergrad. They don't seem to care for psych  or med term. They never once brought it up during my interviews back in 2016. You're right to steer clear of online lab classes (o chem, biochem, genetics, anatomy). I feel like those courses online is just a waste of time.

      Interviewed July 12th, offered a seat on the 19th!
      Who else has been offered a seat?
      I wanted to initiate a thread we could use to share thoughts about the transition from here until Day 1 of class. I'd like to schedule a Meet and Greet prior, if people are interested.
      Questions on the background check, immunization requirements or FAFSA? What neighborhoods are you looking at? Looking for roommates? Need information on Chicago? When are you looking at moving out if you're coming from elsewhere? Where are you coming from? What would make you feel more comfortable getting ready for matriculation?

      I know this is mainly a "contact the school" issue, but I'm wondering is anyone has ever had a problem with programs accepting a combined organic chem and biochem course? I just found out one of them won't allow it after I applied 😞

      Hey! If anyone has any questions regarding PA school or their application please don't hesitate to let me know!
      I applied to 9 schools, got accepted to 1, waitlisted at 4 schools and denied to 4 schools.
      When I was applying there were not many resources to find other students who were accepted with low GPAs to see what they have done, so I just want to help out as much as possible. This is a very stressful part of an individual's life and having someone to relate to can definitely help out.
      If anyone feels uncomfortable commenting their questions on here or need a super fast response, feel free to message me on my instagram as well: Naisphan
      Right now, I'm a volunteer pre-pa mentor for two community colleges in my neighborhood.
       
      I don't want to make this a super long post but a quick overview of my statistics:
      cGPA: 3.1
      sGPA: 3.01
      Last 60 credit hours: 3.8
      PCE: 2600
      HCE: 1500
      Shadowing Hours: 144
      GRE: Did not take
       
      There is so so so much more than just the numbers. I really mean that. I have spoken with a whole bunch of PA admissions committee members directly at multiple schools about my application and also what they're looking for in potential applicants. I've also spoken to many students and pre-pa mentors as well to help me throughout the process.
      With my low GPA, I was worried that I wouldn't be able to make it into school but with the help of my mentors I was able to craft a great application.
      Don't be discouraged at all, there are so many things to do to make your application much better!!! It really is a holistic application and as long as you reach the minimums, anything is possible from there. Again, AMA either here or on my instagram page!!!
