Hey hey! I'm currently in the 2nd degree program at EKU. I just finished my first semester. I have no idea what the GPA cutoff is (because obviously I haven't asked all my classmates what their GPAs are). I had a 3.7 GPA for my first degree coursework. I also had all As in my prereq courses. There are 24 students in the program with me and I think they said around 80 people applied. One of the girls in the program applied 3 times.
I think they look at a lot of things. I mean yes, I think your GPA should be over a 3.0. You should have some kickass references, and a compelling statement of purpose. I certainly wouldn't let my GPA or the difficulty of acceptance keep me from applying. But also, spread your applications around. Apply at UK, and U of L, and Bellarmine too.
