    Nice! Good luck with finishing the rest of your app!
    If you dont mind me asking, what does your prereq gpa look like? I'm nervous mine isn't strong enough :'(

    I don't mind you asking because that's what I've been worried about too! So I have a 3.5 for my DTA & a 3.3 for pre-reqs. I know that they'll be people with higher GPA's but I'm done with all my classes. So I'm hoping the fact that I don't have any standing classes will help. My friend (who's also applying) has a friend through her church that got into the program with a 3.4! Sucks cause Bio160 is what's making my GPA so low, but I did significantly better in all my other bios so Im hoping they care moreso about the A&P/Micro.

    My friend got into the program with a 3.3 overall and 3.2 so i still have hope since my GPA looks about the same. I really wish they allowed more retakes because i have 1 C+ that's weighing my prereq GPA down....
    Do you have a lot of experience in the healthcare field?

    As of right now I have about a little over 400 hours working as a CNA! I've been to informational meetings about SU transfers & they said that experience doesn't exactly guarantee acceptance. However, it does show them that you have a good idea about what you're getting into. They also said that the best way to utilize your experience in your application is to find a way to incorporate it in the nursing essay!

    I am applying also! Although I don't believe I have much of a chance. Due to my terrible grades from community college many years ago...
