Competitive/Uncompetitive/Depends?

  1. I've been reading this forum for about 6 months and I have seen post that have stated you must have a 3.8+ to even be considered for CRNA school as well as post that stated individuals have gotten in with 2.8's and 2.9's with good experience and GRE's. I know programs required different backgrounds and academics, but in general they are pretty much the same. How do you think the interview board determines which applicant to invite to an interview? For those of you who are SRNA's (student registered nurse anesthesist) what type of individuals do you have in your classes?

    we have all types in my class - ranging from age 25 to 40's.... many, many differing backgrounds....
    but i can tell you that everyone in that class is a headstrong person - other than that the differences are too numerous to count

    Which threads were these? Links please? Did I miss something?

    If you have been reading this forum for a while you would realize that in earlier threads people were stating that they got into CRNA school with low gpa's. I don't know exactly when the thread was posted, but I was just wondering about people getting in with the minimal requirements.

    Hmmm...I've been here two years and have read every post in the forum There is one thread that I found where a poster stated that they had a 2.8 GPA prior to the BSN and had like a 3.6 for the BSN program. Maybe this is what you were refering to?
