Currently applying to accelerated BSN programs after graduating with a degree in Audiology from Brooklyn College, GPA 3.5. Had to do all my prereqs while working so my post-bacc GPA isn't amazing (3.2) but my NLNs were decent (150) and I have a ton of volunteer experience and worked as a CNA for 6 years. Currently studying for the TEAS as well, hoping that a good score on that will get me into Downstate.
I didn't get into Hunter or Stoneybrook for Spring 2012, so I'm refocusing and really pulling everything together for Fall 2013--I just don't want to get my heart broken again and I'm so frustrated that every school's requirement seems widely different in terms of prereqs. I know my GPA is going to knock me out of the running for most CUNY/SUNY programs, but where would you recommend that I actually have a fighting chance of getting in? So far on my short list: NYU, Concordia (I'm in pain over the $$$ for both those schools), Downstate, Muhlenberg/JFK (NJ), UMD NJ, Phillips BI and Molloy/College of New Rochelle as maybes. I don't want to waste my time/money applying anywhere that I'm just not going to get into--any thoughts from folks in the same position?
