Competitive GPA? Cumulative vs. last 60 hrs

  1. 0 I am hoping some of you who are farther into applying to MSN/NP programs can give me some advice. I applied to USA and was denied based on my GPA. However, they look at cumulative GPA. My cumulative GPA is low at 3.09. However, I know some schools look at the last 60 hours. I'm in better shape there, with somewhere between a 3.5 and 3.62. I am not sure how to calculate this. I am now looking into applying at Texas Tech. My BSN is from UAB. USA told me I had no chance with anything less than a 3.5. They had a HUGE applicant pool.
    I am amazed at how many people are applying and how competitive these programs are!!
    Have any of you had any success being admitted with stats similar to these?
