Applicants do NOT need to apply for UW-L graduate admission until AFTER they have been offered admission to the PA Program (that is, unless they intend to take courses at UW-L prior to starting the PA Program).  Graduate student slots are reserved for PA Program students at UW-L.  If you meet the criteria for admission to the PA Program, you will almost certainly meet the criteria for UW-L graduate admission and admission to UW-L will be a simple formality.
