I am currently an undergrad studying Biology at Providence College. I have a GPA of 3.75, but I think it’s going to be boosted since I just got an A in Calculus 2. I have written books when I was a teenager and published it online, gaining an audience of about 5 million reads and 100k followers on Twitter. I continued to write but not post years later and now, in my early 20s, I have completed a book I am trying to get published. I didn’t write it for admission purposes or a college ploy, it is something I have worked on since 2016. However, a friend said that it will definitely boost my chances into being accepted into a PA program.
It is a fiction novel. If I am lucky, because I would consider myself lucky if it becomes published, and manage to get it published, would it actually make a difference in my application? What about if it becomes pretty successful?
I have met all other prerequesites, have over 4,000+ hours in a healthcare profession, and I am trilingual. I haven’t taken the GRE yet, though some programs don’t require it. I might not even publish it by then because I tend to re-write a lot but I was just wondering how much it would help if I did get it done beforehand and put it on my application. Either way, I’ll still try to publish it.
