Please tell me what you all think.....my local crna school, rather an admissions person, encouraged me to apply this Fall for the class starting July 2005. I wonder if I should. I just completed an RN program and am getting ready to plow through the BSN program. I think I will be able to complete the BSN by late April, with a conferral date in June.
My overall gpa is 3.75, however my science gpa is 2.5. ARG! I took those science courses MANY years ago...back when a "D" didn't shock my pants off. I plan to work at a level I trauma center here that hires new grads into critical care areas.
When I asked what I could do to make myself a more attractive candidate, she said that two of their professors also teach advanced patho and pharm at a university here.....it would be great to take these two classes from them. Well, the transfer admission date for this univ. has passed already for this Fall, so I wouldn't be able to take them before next Spring anyway. That wouldn't help my chances of getting in Jul '05.
Would you scramble to raise the science gpa and get a great gre score and shoot for application this Fall, 2004? Would it be too much to shoot for?
BTW, the person I spoke with said they had several students with only a year cc experience by the time their srna classes began. And overall, they only turned away 20-30 applicants this past Fall. Is that a good sign?
Your collective opinions are much appreciated
