    Is there anyone on here that received anything other than A's in their science courses?

    I made a B in one of my anatomy courses but I scored high on the Kaplan. Either way, you need to work hard to excel in both areas. Good luck!

    I don't know about on here, but I know there have been, because not everybody who gets into the program does so with a 4.0 GPA. Like RN_Diva_2B says, you don't have to be perfect, but strive to excel. All anybody can ask of you is you do your best.

    Getting a B or a C does not spoil your chances of getting accepted, and not every straight A student will get accepted. I know students in both of those groups that did (or didn't) get accepted at GTC this year.

    I am guessing that a combined score of roughly 175 was necessary for acceptance this year, so even a 3.0 gpa PLUS 85 Kaplan would = 175. Those with a 3.5 gpa needed 80 on Kaplan, and those with 4.0 needed 75.

    As told to me by a prominent instructor: "It is a terrible myth that you need 4.0 to get accepted."

    This is completely true, I actually had all B's on my sci pre-reqs for this program so I'm guessing they don't weigh Sci pre-req higher than english, math, and psych. Before taking the test, I didn't think I had a shot since I was very rusty in AnP. Luckily, I did well enough on the Kaplan.

    This is absolutely true, and I didn't mean to imply with my earlier response that a 4.0 is a necessity. With that said, it still holds true that you want to get the highest GPA you can and the highest Kaplan score you can to make yourself as competitive as possible.

    I believe it is mostly Tue, Wed, Thu but the days change with a few of the rotations.

    Agreed, and I didn't think you meant anything else. My post was just to assure the original poster that not having 4.0 is fine. In the halls of GTC many students feel that only 4.0 gets accepted, and I've known students that have dropped courses because they were afraid of getting a "B" - and that's a real shame.
