    I know this post is a bit old, but I'm graduating from UCONN next spring with a BA in Allied Health and applying to the West Penn School of Nursing. People who have a BA already, what was your GPA when you applied to this program and what type of interview questions did they ask you? Would be very helpful to know

    I didn't graduate with a BA, but I did just recently graduate with a BSBA from Pitt, and I'm going to West Penn this fall. My GPA was a 3.66, and some of the interview questions were: "How did your professors view you in your classes?" and "what study habits did you learn from college?" and "what are some qualities you learned in college that you think will help you in this program?" Very basic things, shouldn't be a challenge for you. Good luck finishing up your last year at UCONN!

    Is anyone else here going to be attending the program this fall? I haven't met anyone yet, and I'd like to!!

    I'm just worried my gpa might be too low. It is above 2.5 and my high school gpa is great and everything else bout my application. This is for the diploma program right?

    Yes, it's for the diploma program. And you should be fine with anything above a 2.5... I think that's usually the cut-off for most programs, right? I wouldn't worry about it. When it's time, do your application with everything you've got, and I'm sure you'll get in!

    Thank you so much for the encouragement I just saw that your GPA was so high and was like OMG, I will never get in because I'm no where near that. I am going to put in a lot of effort to my app though, especially the TEAS and hope they give me an interview. Congrats on getting in!!!!
