Here's what my calendar for my Pre-PA schedule.
April: Start my CASPA application. (CASPA is the general application for ALL PA schools. Some, like Nova, have supplemental applications, but everyone must use CASPA). Also during April, I finish classes for this semester and order my transcripts. And.. >>>CRUISE!!!<<< [I know that it's not PA related.. but it's too exciting NOT to put!]
May: Ask 3 people to write recommendations for me. Take the GRE. Shadow a PA as much as possible. Start my Anatomy and Physiology 2 class. Start writing my essay.
June: Preliminary list for Hodges is announced. (I am in a program that matriculates straight into Nova Ft. Myers campus, if I make the list. I WANT to be on this list [especially if I'm not accepted into the Orlando campus]). Retake the GRE, if needed. Continue shadowing. Start finalizing my CASPA application, including my essay.
Mid-July: APPLY!!!!!!!! I will be applying to 4 schools.
August: Finish A&P 2.
September: Official list for Hodges recommendations are announced. Start new semester.
Then, I just wait, and wait, and wait, and wait. I will wait 6 months! to find out if I even GET an interview. Most of the people invited for an interview are accepted into the program. An interview is a very good thing.
If all goes as planned, I will start Physician Assistant School in
and graduate as a Physician Assistant in
