I have a unique situation.

I came to the United States on an athletic scholarship and completed 3 years of undergrad majoring in Biology but did not graduate due to a leg injury. The school revoked my scholarship. Some courses I completed include: Biology, Chemistry, Microbiology, Physics, Kinesiology, Psychology, Developmental Psychology, and Abnormal Psychology.

I returned to my country and completed one and a half years of medical school. I did not graduate.
Some courses I completed include: Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology, and Parasitology.

I came back to the United States and completed a bachelors degree in Marketing with a 3.1 GPA and a Masters degree in International Relations (Political Science) with a 3.9 GPA.

I have no healthcare experience.

What is the probability of being accepted into a PA program with this academic background?

Depending on your GPA in your science courses and how long ago they were, and how many schools you apply for, you likely have a good shot. Better information can be found at physicianassistantforum.com

Good luck!
