Im 25 and just received my Bachelor's degree in Biology. I graduated cum laude with a 3.46 gpa. Majority of my science classes i received A's and B's. However, the first 4 year college I attended, I was going through a lot of family and financial issue which caused my grades to drop. I have alot of C's, D's, and F's on that transcript. But once i transferred, I got A's in all those classes. Would that still hurt my chances of getting into PA school.

Also, I dont have any direct patient care experience. But I do work as a scribe have strong recommendation letters and research experience.

Any advice would help. Thanks

3.46 is just about avg for pa school (last yr, avg all programs was 3.51). no hce is a big problem. many quality programs count scribe as shadowing only, which is basically what it is. research also is generally not considered HCE.
if you are serious about becoming a PA, get some real HCE for at least 1000 hrs, preferably 2000 hrs. good luck.
