    Hi everyone!

    So I wanted to get an opinion aside from my sugar coating advisor regarding my grades. I was an econ major that worked in banking for 2 years and now I'm about to apply for PA school come spring 2015. Here are my science grades, oh my economics undergraduate degree gpa was 3.5 and I was an honors college student. Keep in mind I work a lot and volunteer!
    I'll start with the bad grades,

    --gen chem, physics and organic chem all Cs

    --gen biology, human anatomy and physiology, medical terminology, cell biology, microbiology and biochemistry all As.

    My Gre I take this sept, and I volunteer with direct patient contact in a hospital, work as a dental assistant, do epilepsy runs, serve at a soup kitchen. I intend to apply first thing with CASPA 2015. So yeah...

    Really depends where you apply. some programs don't accept volunteer hours or dental assisting as experience. apply broadly( 5-7 programs) and you will likely get in somewhere.
