SDN Members don't see this ad. About the ads. Over the past 10 months I applied to 5 Physician Assistant Schools and I had my interviews, which led to being waitlisted at two of them. I still have a slim chance of getting into school this year because the window to get off the waitlist is still open. My question is, if I don't get in this year, should I use my previous personal statement from CASPA for my new application? I spent a ton of time writting my last one and was wondering what other re-applicants did or what is recommended. Help is needed, thanks.
