If you are a hopeful PA school applicant or hope to be someday, it is incredibly valuable to know exactly how you are going to be evaluated beforehand.
You wouldn't show up to your driver's test without knowing what you will be tested on first, right?
Applying to PA School is no different.
It's important to remember that you have complete control over what you submit for evaluation.
It is also equally important to keep in mind that it is your ability to use your application to prove that you have all these skills that get you in, not necessarily just having them.
The hard skills are easy because it's a simple statistical game.
However, it is imperative that you make sure that you effectively communicate via your LORs, personal statement, and interview, that you possess the desired soft skills required to enter PA school and eventually become a PA someday.
Unfortunately, there isn't one way to accomplish this, but it helps to know where to find great resources to help you.
Here are some resources that you may find highly valuable in helping you to ensure that your strengths are communicated effectively in your application.
