PA Program Prospective Students

Statistically, the ideal applicant has presented with a 3.26 overall GPA, 307 / 3.9 GRE scores, completed 3567 hours of healthcare experience, 194 shadowing hours, and 89 science hours before applying to the program. These applicants have gone on to be very successful PA students. Therefore, we encourage all applicants to have scores similar to the ones mentioned above. Applicants who have scores that deviate significantly from the average will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

We will begin the interview process as soon as eligible applications are received from CASPA. Interviews will be offered to qualified applicants and student positions will be offered on a rolling admissions basis. We accept 50 students each year so early application is strongly encouraged. Selection for a place in our PA program is very competitive as we average over 500 applications each year.
