I applied for that semester!
I actually went to an info session recently about the program there. It was sort of funny the way she explained the admission standards:
She began by saying that the average admitted GPA for last year was a 3.5
. That surprised me, and it got my hopes up because I'm currently at a 3.87. She explained that this was one of the major aspects they look at, if not the most important.
Next, she explained that an admission decision depends on how well we write
. That will show in all those essay questions we had to answer that make up our personal statement. I feel pretty good about those.
Finally, she said that they really look at our letters of recommendation
. In fact, she mentioned that they have received BAD letters of rec! I thought that was kind of funny. For my application, I asked my CNA instructor and my boss, with whom I work as a manager.
So all this information got my hopes up really high! I'm thinking to myself throughout the information session that I should be all set to get into the program. Then, the adviser hit us hard.
She explained that over 700 people applied to the program, and of those 700, 200 will not be eligible either due to an incomplete application or they do not meet the minimum criteria. So, of those 500 remaining applicants, 96 will be admitted
Good luck to you
. Maybe we will be classmates if we both get in!
