PA Trek Admissions Coaching

Welcome to PA Trek!  My name is Rachael and nine years ago I was in your shoes. I wanted to be a physician assistant and all my energy, time, and passion went into just that. Let me tell you it paid off! I graduated in 2007 with a Masters of Science and have been working in the ER for most of my career. This is a great profession and I commend you for aspiring to do the same.

Things are different today. There is a greater awareness of the PA profession and more and more people want to get into a program. It is getting more competitive every year. Me and my team want to help qualified people achieve their dream. I work with a wicked group of PA’s as well as a professional editor.  Here is what we are offering-

1.One-on-one conversations about your goals and how to achieve them
2.Review your transcripts to help figure out any holes, review your CASPA and CV
3.Coaching on ways to strengthen your application
4.Editing and feedback of the personal statement and any supplemental essays
5.Two teleconference mock interviews

PA Trek provides a personalized service that will include emails, phone calls and online meetings. Your coach get to know you and your goals and will be a guide during your journey. We will get your application to be the one that stands out, so that you can achieve your dream of becoming a physician assistant!

If you decide to move forward, there is a one time payment of $500.00. If you want to make two monthly installments, we can do that as well. If you are feeling that you would not be in need of the full package, we do offer the services individually.

1. Caspa Review- Sometimes you need a second set of trained eyes to go over every last detail of your application.  Get a PA-C to look for things that may be missing, or details that should go missing! $100

2. Personal Statement Critique- This includes two edits and one 30 minute phone call going over initial draft. We work with a published author/editor so you get a really professional product. $250

3. Mock Interview- 60 minute teleconference interview with feedback. $150 per interview

4. Supplemental Essays- Pricing depends on character count and number of essays

Let me know if you are interested in learning more about the process. We are excited to work with you! Visit my website PA Trek to read more or email me with any questions!

    Hi Rachel,
    I’m interested in the boot camp. I was wondering what time it will start and end?
    Also, I just got my rejection letter from one of the schools I interviewed with. I’m not sure why I was rejected this time. Last year I was rejected because I didn’t complete all my prerequisites. This year I’m still waiting for the reply from the department why they rejected me. Here are my stats:
    Overall gpa 3 5
    Science gpa 3.7
    Healthcare experience over 6700 hours as ultrasound tech
    Volunteer over 400 hours
    PA shadowing over 30 hours.
    Recommendations from former employer,PA and two science professors.
    First interview with the director of the program had a really good feeling. Felt very comfortable.
    Second with two faculties. I felt intimated because I saw that they didn’t care what I was telling them about myself. I had a feeling that they weren’t listening. So when I came out I knew I will not make it. Also,the way I answered some questions. For example, they asked what one thing you would change about your application? I answered I would do more volunteering in the place for underserved population. Than I thought about it I should of say nothing and then list all the accomplishments that makes me a qualified candidate. Another question was what one thing might be a problem doing well in PA programs? I should of say nothing because I can multitasking, focus and be organized. And instead I said multitasking, however I think I will do fine because I always worked, went to school, took care of family and had time to volunteer. Also, when they asked me why you want to come to this school? I’m not sure how confident I answered this questions. I knew why but because I was so intimated I felt I was mumbling something and felt my voice shaking.
    So anyway this is my experience. So there is alot to work on.
    Another school I applied to I was put in hold pending interview until I score higher on my GRE.
    I took it twice and did worse the second time then 1st time. I prepared using Princeton review book gpr about 3 months. Also took practice tests on through ets website.
    So what can you recommend to prepare for GRE?
    Thank you for all that you do.
