Does anyone have any experiences or insight on the University of Calgary? I'm specifically looking at their BNAT program since I already have a bachelors degree. It would also be useful to get a feel for nursing in Alberta in general or what it's like to live in Calgary. I've been living in Montreal for the past 5 years and although I love this city I'm really keen to go west, I just want to make sure it's a good choice school. It makes me a little nervous that they just switched over to guaranteed acceptance at 3.0, but as long as it's sufficiently rigorous and a good educational experience I won't worry about it.
Any thoughts would be appreciated!

As far as I know, they only look at GPA for admissions, but it's only the last 10 courses you took. And I don't think you need to worry yet about having a 3.2... I'm not 100% clear on what competitive average means, but I am guessing it means that if you have a 3.4, your chances of getting in are really good? I'm not sure. I just can't imagine everybody entering the Transfer route this September had a 3.85 or above...
Anyway, I'm going to be starting this September, so if you get in I think we will have classes together at some point! Good luck!
