Hello, I am currently a senior in High School. I am interested in pursuing the field of nursing. I will be planning to apply to Seton Hall, Ramapo, Kean, William Patterson, and Richard Stockton for nursing. (I've already applied to Rutgers for Art and Sciences)
My GPA is a 3.00 (Yes, I'm aware it's in the low end)
My first SAT score was 1450.
Second was 1550.
My third score is a 1740.
I will be retaking SAT again in this December and I'm confident it will be 1900-range. (Possibly 2000 if I can) For extracurricular activities, I joined clubs (Psychology-4 years, Tutor-3 years, Art-3 years, Chemistry-2 years) I volunteered at an SAT school and accumulated approx. 160 hours. Leadership wise, I was treasurer for Psychology club. President for art club.
I know that my academic performance reflects many ways about myself. Albeit, throughout my years of high school, I never had a direction of what to pursue. Nursing, for the most part, was least in my mind at that time. There were some situations where I had some personal struggles and family issues which profoundly impacted me. Yet, it greatly influenced me to the path of nursing today. And one of my reasons why I want to do nursing.
That said, first, I wish to try for B.S.N nursing program. Then R.N nursing. If anyone have any experiences or attend the colleges of the list mention above and take part of their nursing program. Please let me know. I want to be aware of my safety and target schools. It would be highly helpful and informative if someone state their GPA and SAT so that I can compare and estimate my chances for the school. Thank you.
