    I applied for accelerated and was given traditional. I'm so glad though! I think it ended up being the right choice for me.

    Good luck with your application!! What start date are you applying for? And when should you know if you're accepted??

    Hi! For those who said they got into CU with a low gpa- can I ask what those gpas were? Cumulative and pre-reqs.

    I am applying for summer 2013 and I have the classic "i just didnt try hard my freshman year". I have a 3.4 cumulative and only a 3.11 for my pre reqs :/ any adivce or anyone else that has gotten in with those kinds of grades?

    Thank you so much and congrats to all who have gotten into the program!

    Hi Allison,
    My cumulative gpa was 3.25 and I think my prereq was a 3.7.
    I applied once in the summer and didn't get in, I reapplied in the fall and got in for the summer start program. I think that the essay is really important so I would spend alot of time on it! Good luck!

    I don't know many people in the program but i think most people with low gpas have a pretty high prereq but low cumulative

    My prereq GPA was 4.0. My previous bachelor's was 2.87. I know that they look heavily at your pre-req GPA. I'm finishing up my first semester at CU. I'm taking pathophysiology, pharmacology, and nursing fundamentals. Patho and pham reference A&P, Micro, and Chem a lot. They throw a lot of material at you to learn each class and keeping up with it is a challenge.

    I know this is an old thread but I thought I'd post anyway to see if anyone replies!

    I am applying for the accelerated January 2014 start. I have a 3.8 gpa in my science pre reqs but got a C+ in statistics, ugh!

    Does anyone know if schools in Colorado focus on stats? Debating taking it again but nearly ceremoniously burned my book after I took my 27 (yes 27) page final exam!

    Thanks!
