    Hey! I'm looking to apply to the Drexel ACE program this October, this forum has helped a lot! But, wondering if someone can help me clear something up. What counts as the last 60 credits when determining GPA? I didn't do too well my Junior year at Rutgers. I'm taking 11 credits now for my prereqs. So, counting the 30 credits from my senior year, and the 11 credits from my prereqs, I'd be at 41 credits. How would they determine what to use for the 19 credits from my Junior year? Because I'm borderline on the 3.0 GPA and I failed Organic Chemistry 2 my junior year and not sure how this will effect the GPA calculation.

    Also, I've been working as a CNA for the past year. Does that help my chances at all?

    I think they literally take your last 60 credits and calculate your GPA from there. As long as you show them that your grades have increased, you should have a chance. Organic Chemistry 2 is not a prerequisite. You can calculate your last 60 credits yourself, just google "calculate last 60 credits."

    The only thing they consider is GPA and meeting the prerequisite requirements. I don't think it matters if your credits were from an ivy league school in biology or a state school in art. That's the extent of their selection process. They seem to let in as many people as possible. Just a word of caution: Many of the people they let in do not make it through the program.

    Congrats everyone for getting in. I just finished Q2. It's tough, but stay ahead and you can do it. Maybe I'll see some of you around in a couple weeks.
