BSN programs in Houston are highly, highly competitive. Unless you have a 4.0 or very, very close then I would strongly advise someone to apply to all and pray for the best. Unfortunately, due to how competitive programs in the area are students don't have much choice. It's more about the school picking you. Take a look in the Student forum and the Texas forum and there is info. on how competitive local programs are. Some won't even look at you if you have less than a 3.7, some semesters 3.8 etc.
