Extra Curricular Question

Recommended Posts

I understand that CASPA does not have a specific section for extra curricular activities, and that most should be put in the Honors/Awards/Leadership positions. While I included most of mine in this section, I also wanted to mention a trip to Washington D.C. I took with student government to lobby for higher education. Where in the CASPA application should I mention this?

I was a member of my school's Pre-PA Club. I didn't have a leadership position so it can't go on the Honors/Awards/Leadership. Where on the application should I put this? Health Care or Shadowing?

I was told that any non-leadership ECs do not have a place on CASPA, and that those are typically addressed in secondary apps. Hope this helps.

I listened to this from a current PA student that comes from a University that seemingly pumps students into PA schools: find a spot on CASPA to include everything you've done. Its better to put something in, well documented, than second guessing yourself and leaving it out.

      Hi!  I'm curious what other people have done in the past/suggest for adding collegiate athletics to CASPA?  It was a huge part of my 4 years in college, and I was also a captain so I wanted to include the leadership aspect to my application but I'm not sure how to enter accurately.   
      If I add being a captain under leadership experience, it requires me to select "Volunteer, Academic, or Paid".  I currently have my sport entered under "Memberships" but I'm open to changing it to something different.
      Any suggestions/insight you could offer would be great!  Thank you in advanced!

      Thought I would get this started, anyone submit yet? I submitted my CASPA on 5/12, supplemental 5/13, and GRE on 5/13 as well!

      Does anyone know how long it usually takes for Professional Transcript Entry to be completed? I paid for the service before finding out that it might be more time saving to do it yourself. I submitted my CASPA on 5/16 and now I'm just an anxious ball of energy waiting for them to enter my courses.

      Hello everyone! I thought I would start a thread for this cycle. Waiting for my transcripts to be received by caspa and then I plan on submitting.

      Hey good people! I hope you’re all well and healthy during this COVID-19 outbreak. Just wanted to start this early and see your progress on the 2020-21 PA applications!
