:imbar Anyone applying to the christ college of nursing and health sciences admission for the fall of 2010? I know the deadline is january 15, 2010. I had got accepted last march but I could not attend so I am applying again, I had a 3.53 GPA cumulative but last spring I took some classes and my quaterly GPA was a 2.90 so I decided to take biology, spanish and math and earned a 4.0 this quarter so I am hoping that will bring my cumulative GPA back to its competitive state. I have 2 reference letters from a supervisor at Children's Hospital and a professor at the University of Cincinnati and a co worker but I am not confident on my essay. I am wondering if my grades and other credentials will make up for my writing deficiency and if the fact that I got accepted last year will influence their admissions decision in a positive way. To those who attend christ or are applying how competitive were your grades?
