I'm in the program right now, and so far it is an amazing experience. I had a 3.4 overall GPA and about the same pre-req GPA. I've been told a lot of emphasis is placed on your admission essay as well. It does say on the website however, that a 3.0 is required. You may want to talk to the recruiting coordinator if you haven't already to see if exceptions can be made. Good luck on your applications! If you end up here, it will be a great experience for you!

Im having a hard time finding out any info on this satellite campus in Hastings but am interested in it because of the earlier start. Any info would be great!

From what I understand, Hastings is a much smaller campus/experience. I think they watch all lectures recorded from the main campus, and then have clinicals at the local hospital. I'd say it's a good experience if you are interested in rural health care, but I don't think you'd get the same expereince as being on the main CU campus. I'm at the main campus now, so I'm not entirely sure how accurate I am. One thing I do know that's nice is because the class size is so small (5-7 students versus 45) is you have a better clinical ratio. I'd email the recruiter for more info, she's very helpful and not pushy at all =)
