    Hello, I am just going to get to the point. I have over +8000 HCE as a pharmacy tech, Nuc Med tech, CT tech, and PET/CT. I have experience in the OR, Cardiology, Radiology, Pharmacy etc. I have my B.S. in Imaging Sciences as well as certs in Nuc Med, PET, CT, Pharmacy. My school history is the problem. I have some prior C's in a couple science courses (earth science, biology 1, Chem 2) and a couple other non science courses that I screwed up in early in my college career. However, my CUM and Science GPA are both 3.3, and my last 90+ hours have been ~3.8 while working full-time. I have about 20 hour shadowing experience of a perfusionist and heart surgeries. I have 40 hours shadowing an Ortho PA. Also, I am a volunteer at a children's hospital. Does anyone have a similar background that got into PA or Perfusion school? Does this seem competitive enough?

    Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

      Your GPA is high enough to be considered and I think your HCE is pretty good. There is a lot of competition out there, but not a lot with nuc med/CT tech background. So, I think that makes you stand out from the typical STNA/MA/EMT applicants.

        Thanks for the reply! I am hoping with my vast healthcare experience and a good GRE they may over look my low grades from early on in college.
