Chances for Rutgers PA Program

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! 

I am applying this 2020 cycle to Rutgers PA Program in order to start PA school in the fall 2021. I am applying one year early (as a sophomore) for PA school because I am in the 3+3 with NJIT and Rutgers and I was wondering what my chances are for getting in. My GPA was great freshman year (4.0) but this semester it took a hit. Currently my GPA is a 3.83 and my science GPA is a 3.78. With everything else, do I have a chance of being interviewed/accepted? What can I do to improve my application. 

GPA: 3.83

Science GPA: 3.78

I have a lot of non-clinical/non-healthcare work as well but I don't think it's helpful to mention here.
