Does anyone know where to pay the supplemental fee? I can't find any mention of it on their website, but on CASPA, they indicate there is a fee that must be paid in order to be considered complete.

Also, they stress on the prerequisite page that only one course can be matched to each prereq. At my school microbiology was separated into two separate courses, the lecture and lab. Can I match both to the prereq?

Could you possibly be thinking about Western Michigan University? This post is for Western U in California.

I am aware. MyPABox indicates there is a supplemental fee for WesternU in Cali. I guess the better question would be whether a supplemental fee exists this year?

I wouldn’t trust MyPABox, it’s pretty unreliable and outdated. WesternU did not have a supplemental fee last year, I don’t think they would bring it back after getting rid of it

Hi!! I don't believe there is a supplemental fee, as there wasn't one last cycle. Also, my microbiology class was separated into two as well: lecture and lab. On CASPA you can select both for the one prereq and they will both show up under the requirement 🙂

hi guys! so I'm working on my application and I thought I had all the prereqs met but now I'm not so sure. Hoping someone can offer some clarity because no one's responding to my emails LOL. 

1. I did take an english comp course but because I came into college with some many IB credits, 5 of my credits counted towards UW English 193, it's just listed under my transfer credits. Can I use this as my other College English course? I also took 2 other writing intensive courses, can I put one of those down to count? Not sure what to do. 

2. I didn't take a sociology class but I did take anthropology which is supposed to count for that credit. However, it was technically named anthropology of food. Would this count towards that credit?

3. For humanities I took music, italian, and a forests and societies course that does examine culture. However, I'm worried that they won't count the forest and societies course for some reason. Do I keep it or do I put an IB transfer credit of visual, literary, and performing arts that counted in my transcript at the beginning of college? 

 

I really want to apply here but if it doesn't work out I'd rather just figure that out sooner than later haha. Thanks guys for any advice you can offer!! 🙂

Western has a really good pre-requisite database that can tell you if the classes you took at your school satisfy their requirements. I’ll link it here!

      Hey y'all so I am a sophomore in undergrad and in the process of just starting to get PCE, shadow, and volunteer hours and etc, but I am super stressed out because I am itching to start getting PCE hours except its so difficult while in school. I was thinking about becoming an EMT and working for 2 years after I graduate but I wasn't sure if being an EMT is considered PCE among most colleges, does anyone know? (I also tried to work as a caregiver over summer and that job isn't for me) 
       
      Also, I'm trying to compile a list of PA schools to apply to, so if anyone has any recommendations for schools on the east coast please let me know! 🙂

      Hey everyone, there are still tickets available for those who are interested in the Loma Linda PA program. We have changed our event from zoom to being ON CAMPUS. There will be prizes raffled off. Due to some restrictions still being in place, the tickets that are being sold will only allow one person per ticket. More info on the flyer and event bright website. Thank you so much! Hope to see you there. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/llus-3rd-annual-pre-pa-conference-tickets-145958073527

      Hi everyone! I’m looking to take on some more pre-PA students who need help with CASPA review, personal statement brainstorming/editing and interview prep.
      I’m 4.5 years out of PA school with experience in NYC and Baltimore and am a former interview committee member!

      Hello! I thought I would get the forum for the SIU application started!
      Has anyone had trouble filling out the supplemental application? There is no option to choose "Summer 2022".

      Hi everyone! This is my first post so be forgiving if I don't have proper forum etiquette lol. So I am extremely nervous to apply this cycle, 2021-2022, because I feel as though my application is not going to be that strong. Here's what I have (keep in mind that I am a junior in college, so I have some more classes to take):
      cGPA: 3.27
      sGPA: right now I have a 3.1, but after this semester I am thinking that it will be around a 3.3
      HCEs: over 2,000 as a CNA
      I haven't asked for LORs yet, but I am sure that those I ask will highly recommend me (crossing my fingers!).
      I don't have as many volunteer hours as I would like, around 50, but I am currently working on them. 
      I am also involved on campus as an Orientation Leader, I am the President of Nature Club, the treasurer of a History club, and I am also apart of many other clubs, I am just not holding any positions in them. I don't know if this is relevant or not but I also take juijistu classes off campus. 
      I did have some mishaps happen throughout college, I earned a C- in human A&P, and I had to retake biochemistry. I'm not sure if I should retake human A&P to raise my grade and GPA or let it go. I am going to apply this cycle to programs that do not have a minimum letter grade, but I am honestly so worried that these schools won't even look at my application because of my GPA and my A&P grade. 
      Any and all recommendations are welcome, thank you!
