I'm starting to apply to all the LPN Programs in the metropolitan area that I can AFFORD lol. I'm currently attending Queensborough C.C. in bayside, and I wanted to transfer to Laguardia for their LPN program; however, my GPA is pretty low because i have 2 unofficial withdrawals. I tried appealing it, but it didn't go so well.
So my question is... Is it competitive to get into their LPN program, because I know their RN program definitely is. I was hoping since its a certificate program it might be easier to get into...?
Any students or ppl who know, please reply, and help a girl out

All I really know is that it's less competitive than the RN program. LAG really pushes the people who don't get into the RN program into LPN, from what I've heard, so it might be Kind of competitive.
Oh! I remembered, talking to an advisor the other day, that the GPA cutoff for those who get accepted into the LPN program is about.. 3.4? A little lower or higher, I'm not sure, but around there somewhere. The minimum for the RN hovers around 3.7, if that helps. But if the LPN program works like the RN program, only the GPA from classes required by the nursing program matters.
