The only way to do this is to do a bit of research and compare your path to others on a similar journey.
Which is why we have compiled this big list of CASPA application statistics from 117 PA School applicants from the 2020-2021 CASPA application cycle.
To compare is to despair?
But “To compare is to despair,” they say. And it's true. I've experienced the pain of looking at other people's list of 10,000 volunteer hours, 3.86 cGPA, or sickeningly perfect #prepa Instagram pages.
But the act of comparison, in itself, is nothing to despair about. It's what happens next that’s problematic: the feeling "less than" that often ensues.
"She's got a higher GPA than I do," "she's got better LOR's than I do," "she has so many more HCE and PCE hours, she is thinner, happier, more successful, and I'm falling short."
Trust me, it's normal to do this, but it's not going to help you reach your goals. So instead of using comparison to belittle yourself, use the comparison to your advantage.
To compare is to research.
If you are falling short in any metric, instead of feeling envious of others or bad about yourself because you don’t possess whatever it is your noticing that someone else has, consider it research.
Comparison can give us clues to what we like, what we want, and how to get it. And when we see what others have done to succeed, we know what’s possible for ourselves. If I see you accomplish something, that means it can be done!
Maybe it's improbable that you will be able to achieve a 3.90 sGPA, but you can take additional courses to bring your sGPA up to 3.34. Perhaps you will not go to Harvard undergrad, but you can use your two years of community college to make straight A's while saving a boatload of money. Maybe you recognize that you are short on HCE/PCE hours? You can get started today to earn a certification and begin accruing hours like your future depended on it (and maybe it does).
Here’s my advice as you read this list:
If there are metrics that you fall short on instead of “I’m not good enough,” try to insert these thoughts:
- “I’m working on it.”
- “I’ll get there too.”
- “I’m on my way.”
- “I’m grateful for what I have/who I am/where I am.”
If there are metrics you are rocking it on, give yourself a pat on the back.
And remember, there is no such thing as "the perfect PA school candidate." The application process involves many metrics, and PA schools use a holistic approach to screening applicants. If you fall a bit short in one area, you can make up for it by knocking it out of the park in another.
Harness the power of comparison to propel you toward your dream of being a PA.

Before joining the Peace Corps, I volunteered three or so hours a week for six months as a patient-visitations volunteer (68 hours). I have 250 hours as a volunteer medical interpreter on eight medical brigades in Ecuador over a six-year period, some of which were while I was a Peace Corps Volunteer, and others were after I completed my service. I started volunteering as a medical interpreter at the student-run clinic at CU this month, and last month I got a job as a dialysis patient care technician, which will be all direct patient care. I'm still in training and haven't started cannulating patients yet, but I collect patient data like symptoms and vitals and calculate and program their treatment into the dialysis machine. I think I'll have started cannulating and removing needles before my interview date, but I will not have fully completed training yet. I have only shadowed two PAs, but I have interacted with a lot of PAs through our state organization, the Colorado Academy of Physician Assistants (CAPA). I'm a member and have a small role on a committee.
