Here's the deal, my GPA is in a rut. It's at a mere 2.7 and I know the minimum required is 3.0. The good thing is that I just started taking prereqs for nursing school and I can get it back up to 3.0 by the time I apply (nursing school, that is), which will be by the Spring. I know this does not make me competitive at all, but I'm not going to give up on my dreams.
Should I apply as soon as my GPA meets the requirement and I'm in nursing school? Or should I wait until about my second year of nursing school and with a higher GPA?
Also, is there anything I can start doing now that could possibly make me a a stand-out candidate, assuming I add this information in my application/resume?
