GCU competitive gpa

  1. 0
    Hi everyone.

    I plan on applying to GCU's fall '12 program. I'll be competing with a 3.35 science gpa and a 3.5 cumulative. Anyone know if this could get me in? I haven't taken my teas yet but am planning on doing so soon. Can anyone please provide feedback on their gpa's. Does anyone recommend I retake something to raise my science gpa? I have a C in bio 201 & a B in 202. I'm a nervous wreck because of this & keep thinking I won't get accepted. Please help...

    Thanks very much!!!

    P.s.im coming from GCC as a transfer.

    I'm currently at GCC on the waitlist there. I have a friend that goes to GCU and according to her it's not very competitive(like ASU) in terms of getting accepted partly because its a private school. I have a friend that had average grades and got accepted with no problem.

    I just applied for Summer 2013 at GCU with a 3.5 cumulative and a 3.45 science. I am also a nervous wreck. I got a C in Chemistry and Stats but A's in everything else. I hate waiting.

    That sounds like pretty good numbers to me. When will you find out? I'm sure you'll get in!

    The regitstation cut off isnt until Jan 15th. So I am not sure if they accept/deny people as they apply or if they wait until they have all of the applicants and choose from there. I am thinking I should know by Mid February. I had a friend who got in, she starts Spring Semester and she got a C in Micro and in A&P 2. So, I am hopring my C in Chem is not as big of a deal as I am making it in my head.

    Hello - I apologize for hijacking this thread, but I am interested in contacting GCU regarding their nursing program and am wondering whether someone who had a good Admissions counselor could PM me with the name/contact info of who they worked with? Thanks in advance :-)
