caltmen Posted May 23, 2020 Share Posted May 23, 2020 Hey everyone I was just hoping to get some input on my situation here. I am going to apply this round and ideally get in next year. I have a cGPA of 3.22 and sGPA of a 2.93. I realize these are low and I am retaking A&P 1/2 this summer because mine are about 6 years old now. I have calculated that I will have a sGPA of 3.05 considering I get A's this summer. and my cGPA will go up to a 3.25. Is this reasonable? I have written my PS and I think it's pretty BA. I have ~7000+ hours PCE as an ophthalmic technician (prepping patients for surgeries, taking vitals, running diagnostic tests before seeing doctor, assisting in major and minor surgeries). I am also a certified ophthalmic assistant (you have to work in ophthalmology for a year and then take a test) and I can run the lasik laser which is another certification. My LOR will be from a PA I shadowed and went to undergrad with, 2 from MD's I work with (one is also the owner of the clinic/my boss), and my lead at work who helped get my certification (I figured this is more appropriate than a professor since I graduated in 2015). I have tons of volunteer hours with kids in church settings/internships >2000. I am planning on taking the GRE this summer. (this has been hard to figure out because of the state the country is in) Everything I have read says to apply early. My class will end July 24th. Should I wait till then to submit or should I submit as soon as I can. Do I have reasonable chances since my GPA is on the low side? I feel like that is my one low spot. I need a pep talk y'all.
