    My GPA is a 3.3 and Kaplan was an 80. [moderator edit of name] said that my GPA was a little to low but my Kaplan score was very good! I guess I will be retaking some classes in the Fall.

    aalewine that is exactly what happened to me last year. I had a 3.1 GPA so i retook a few classes and this year I applied with a 3.7 GPA. You did very well on the Kaplan's test so next year you'll make it for sure. Good luck!

    I didn't get in . Apparently my Kaplan score of 73 was too low, but I have a 3.9 GPA. That's so disheartening to work so hard on the prereqs and have an entrance test determine your faith. Oh well, keeping my fingers crossed for the last school I applied to!! Congrats to those who were accepted!

    It truly is disheartening mooney3012! I am in the same place & truly feel that a entrance exam should not dictate getting into nursing school. Especially since the pre-reqs should determine the quality and capability of being a nurse and not some generalized entrance exam. You have a great GPA & should be encouraged by that. I hope that you get in at the other school that you applied to. I sure hope that all schools do not give such weight to entrance exams & appreciate high gpa's to accept into their nursing program.

    I applied to Athens Tech but that is a long shot because their stats are even higher than Gwinnett! But it's ok! I think God knew that I needed to be in a little bit better place in my life. So Next year is my year! I just wish this could have all happened like 3 years ago! LOL!

    Can anyone tell me a good A&P 2 teacher at Gwinnett? That is the class I will be retaking.

    I applied to Athens Tech also. That's the last school I'm waiting on and my saving grace at this point. I wish they had a way of knowing early (like GTC does online). Good luck to you! Keeping my fingers crossed for both of us!

    Hi all, if our status changed from the last program over to Associate Degree in Nursing as our current program, does that mean a person is in? (shaking in my boots here)

    That's what we're all assuming but we don't know for sure. I think that was the case for last year's class.

    Practically stalking the mailman at this point. Must channel my inner-patience.
