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!
Please send an email to email@example.com for more info and pricing!
I had to retake one class my freshman year, and I really do not want to waste a few sentences in my personal statement to speak about it. Although, I also understand it is best to address it somewhere. Is there another place on CASPA to discuss shortcomings on your application? I do not see a place, but I want to make sure I am not missing something.
I worked as a PRN rehab technician for about 3 months (roughly 20 hours a week) before I became Full-Time (40 hours a week). How do I record this change in hours? Do I make two separate entries or average the hours per week? My hours for PRN also varied each week, with weeks working up to 30 hours and sometimes only 15 hours. Do I need to record this somehow? I also do not understand how PA schools validate that the numbers of hours stated are honest. Is there some sort of validation document needed from each employer from past jobs. Any advice is appreciated, thank you!
Hello! I am a senior in Life Science and will be graduating spring 2019.
I have a 3.411 cGPA, 3.263 sGPA. I have been a CNA in the hospital setting for 2 years and currently work as a CNA in home health and a tutor. I have 400 volunteer hours, 50 shadowing hours, myriad leadership positions on campus and though I know research has little to do with the PA field, am conducting biomedical research to learn more about the physiology behind the heart. I apply this cycle and was curious to see other's opinions on my statistics. Thank you.
Hello, my name is Maylily7! I really want to become a PA and apply to PA school upon graduation. What I would appreciate is advice to secure an acceptance and the likelihood I can get into one of these programs. Also, if you have any personal admissions stories I'd be happy to hear them! I just want to know if this is achievable for me. Also, if you have any schools/programs I might be a good fit/candidate for, please don't hesitate to mention them, I'd love to check them out!
Info about me: Biology major with a psychology and chemistry minor.
3.7 overall GPA, 3.5 Science GPA
Graduating in May 2018, have made Dean's List 7/8 semesters (still waiting to see how I do this semester)
Currently volunteering with my school's EMS unit and as of right now have about 100 hours.
I don't have much health care hours but I am a certified EMT and plan to take a year off to gain experience as well as learn more about the field.
Thank you for your time and advice, I appreciate it a lot! :D
