Ok so I am applying to BSN-DNP programs this fall as well as MSN programs (with preference for the BSN-DNP programs) and I am a bit nervous about getting accepted. The reason is my cumulative GPA is currently 3.3 (this is with a previous BA as well as numerous courses after college...the 3.3 is also combined with my nursing school
GPA). If I take off the first 3 semesters of college, my GPA is around a 3.6. Do you think graduate schools
will look at my first 3 semesters? I transferred after 3 semesters to another school where I graduated with a 3.79, but when I left the first school my GPA was a 2.53.
My GREs also aren't that hot: I have a 550V, 700Q, 6A. I know the 6A is good, but my verbal feels very, very low and I think BSN-DNP programs are going to be very competitive. I also am writing a thesis this semester hoping that this will impress admissions committees. What do you think my chances are?
Edit to add: The schools I am applying to are ASU, UIC, Pitt, Columbia, BC, Yale, Georgetown, UNC-Chapel Hill, Rush, Penn, UWash
