SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I just failed out of medical school, failed too many classes 4th semester. At my medical school basic sciences is made up of 4 semesters thus I failed at the very end of basic sciences. Because of personal and financial reasons, I've decided to abandon the medical school route and am interested in applying to PA school. I've basically studied Anatomy, Physiology, Biochem, Pharm, Path, Micro and did fair in those classes (with the exception of my 4th semester). My case is probably fairly unique but how will that "background" affect my application to PA school? Also, another question- do most PA schools have lectures on powerpoint to download? Just wondering b/c my study style relies heavily on the use of powerpoint slides.
