question about direct entry msn/accelerated bsn....last thirty credits??

  1. Hi, I was wondering if anyone knew of any accelerated bsn AND/OR direct entry masters programs who only looked at the last thirty credits of coursework and/or the prerequisite classes in determining admission gpa?

    (preferrably direct entry masters, as my gre is pretty good) My last thirty credits have been really good but I really, realy screwed up in the first two years of college and I took a lot of credits during those years....)

    Unfortunately when it comes to looking at 'x' number of units, the magic number I've found is 60 semester/quarter units. I wouldn't count yourself out of the running from schools that look at cumulative GPA, you can always explain your poor performance in your first years via personal statement.

    Good luck!

    are you looking anywhere in the country? and how bad is bad for the other grades? My undergrad gpa was not that great 2.7 and I did good in the pre-reqs (3.5) and I got into a direct entry masters here in IL. My overall was not even 3.0 with all combined, my GRE was good and I had good work experience. And also that essay matters.
    Good luck!
