How It Works
By using our site you’ve decided to save days, weeks, or even months of time and find out which schools you qualify for in a matter of minutes. We know how important your time is, so we’ve designed a platform with a user interface that is easy to understand and navigate. Once you’ve chosen your preferred package and logged in, you will have the option to view everything you need in one organized and convenient place.
Members Home Page
Once you log in, you’ll be taken to your personal member’s home page dashboard. Your member’s homepage dashboard is your home base when working within the PA School Match platform. Your homepage dashboard is a big-picture snapshot that allows you to easily navigate to each page within the platform, including your Tests/GPA Page, Courses Page, Experience Page, and Results Page.
Tests and GPA Page
On this page, you will enter all of your testing scores and GPA information. If you’ve taken the GRE, you will enter your scores for all sections of the test and the date you took the test. You’ll enter the same information for any other tests you’ve completed like the MCAT and Casper. Your level of education and GPA will also be entered on this page as well.
The courses page is where you enter all of your course information. For example, you’ll select Chemistry from a drop-down menu, then choose the type of chemistry, like Organic Chemistry. You’ll enter the letter grade you received in the course, number of credits, type of credit, and date taken. All fields in every category are already populated, so all you need to do is select the relevant one from the drop-down menu – No typing is necessary.
The experience page is where you enter any healthcare experience you have. Categories include healthcare experience hours, direct patient contact hours, shadowing hours, community service hours, and letters of recommendation. On this page you’re only entering numbers – either number of hours, or number of recommendations. No typing is necessary; we’re just entering values to find out which programs you qualify for based on experience.
Once you’ve entered all the information into the Tests/, GPA, Courses, and Experience pages you’re ready to view the results page and see which schools you qualify for. Based on the information you entered on the first three pages, a list of schools you’re qualified for will be presented on the results page. Each school will be displayed with a link to their homepage so you can research the school and see if looks like a good fit for you.
