    I am applying too for the fall! Ah! Im nervous! I am finishing the last classes in march. I want to go ahead and apply then too rather then waiting until may! Do you know if they calculate your entire gpa (I am graduating from ASU this may with a bachelors in sociology) so would they take those grades too and pre req gpa? Im pretty nervous! But I heard they have opened up alot of spots and locations making it easier to get in. What's your gpa? I haven't done the teas yet..

    My advisor said it's only the pre-reqs. that are calculated for the scholarship. Although I'm not sure about that COM class? I think that is considered as well. I too am curious about the non-degree students GPA/teas scores. I have a degree already which my advisor said weighs in my favor BUT I have a C in Psych and math which really concerns me since I'm competing against non-degree and degree students. Not quite sure what I should do?

    I got a C in bio 202, and the counselor said that it shouldn't be a problem considering I already have a degree, which apparently that helps tremendously. From the previous posts I read, the average gpa was like a 3.4 or so…Are you applying for the fall as well?

    Yes I'm applying for the evenin and weekend program. I'm hoping the school can accept a higher level Psych. course to replace my C and that would bump up my overall GPA. I am Taking the required COM class and will finish HCR 210 this semester too. I'm still nervous about it because I am no longer considering ASU. Oh and still have to take the TEAS.

    Yes I agree. I am sure they would accept a higher Psych class! I thought that would take replacements for math if it is a higher level. So maybe that works for all classes? And yes, I am not considering ASU anymore either. So GCU is the last option! Do you know what campus hosts the evening and weekend? I know their traditional is at GCU. So I couldn't remember if nights were at the Mesa campus or if weekends were?

    It's both at that campus. Clinicals are on the weekend and lecture is during the week. Not sure what the schedule is at the Scottsdale campus.

    Oh ok. I understand. Well im excited! I am going in to take the teas the beginning of march and then apply sometime in march. I agree though I wish I just knew the statistics of other previous applicants so we knew what the standard was...that part makes me nervous!

    I know! They said they typically don't accept a higher level Psych course in place of psych 101 which doesn't make sense to me. They accept higher level math courses! I can't really afford to retake Psych 101 especially since I have taken 200, 300, and 400 level Psych courses. If I had a better idea of the other applicants stats I could feel better about my chances of getting in. Hmmmmm

    Oh and I thought they would waive the "university foundations" course which basically tells you how to be successful at the school. But we have to take that 8 wk. course in our first semester and in our 4th semester take a Christian World View course. Did you know that?

    Whoa! I did not know that! I thought they would waive a lot of those types of courses if you already had a bachelors degree. Hmm? I just hope I can get some type of scholarship for the funding of all the classes (especially the ones I am forced to take like those!) But I am tempted to email my counselor and ask for some statistics about the program. Like the average gpa, and tea scores. I feel like I am getting more anxious since it is getting closer and closer!
