HM2PA Posted November 5, 2012 Share Posted November 5, 2012 Hello Folks! I just found this forum a few days ago and am already learning SO much. Thank you all for your discussion and input! Here is a brief synopsis of my situation and question: SHORT BIO/STATS: HCE: 5 years Navy Corpsman (work under a PA and saw my own patients), 9 months Lab Assistant (Phleb, EKGs, ABGs) College: BA done in December and STARTING sciences in January 2013. I will be going full time and taking Bio, A&P I & II, Micro, inorganic chem I, intro to o-chem/biochem, Psych, and Lifespan Psych. undergrad cGPA: will be 3.0 post bach sGPA: I am extremely determined and think I can get over 3.5 in the above listed courses. If I do, my adjusted cGPA would be about 3.2-3.3 MY QUESTION: for the 2013-14 application cycle, when should I finalize my CASPA app? Should i turn it in early (may-june) with outstanding pre-reqs in progress knowing that those grades will not be verified and calculated by CASPA? Or should I wait until mid-august when all my course work in complete? I know that earlier is very beneficial, but I also know that much of the strength of my package will come from the strong science GPA that I will be earning this winter, spring, and summer qtrs. NOTE: due to course pre-reqs my A&P II class will not be until summer qtr, this is obviously a very important pre-req. PS: my top choice is MEDEX, second is Duke, and then whichever programs I think I will have the best shot at getting in to. Hope this is not too much info, thanks for the help!
