    I had a 2.9 with prereqs. I just graduated, and my GPA went up to a 3.06. I goofed up when I shouldn't have before nursing school.

    Yes! There's hope for me after all. I currently have a 3.0 and if I get an A in my winter class, it'll go up.
    My school bases half their admission on your pre-req gpa, 25% on the teas, and the other 25% on your A&P 1 grade. I got an A- in A&P 1 and I'm retaking the teas for a higher score. So I hope those will make up for my lagging gpa.

    Does the Teas score play a part in your acceptance? My GPA is 3.5 but my Teas score suxxxx.

    The minimum GPA requirement for my school was 2.75, and yeah, it depends on the school. 2.9 was the pre-req gpa for my school, but at other schools where I applied, it went up or down. At one school, it was a 3.0, at another, it was a 3.3.

    My undergrad and grad GPAs were 2.98 and 3.7, respectively, in an unrelated major. My prerequisite GPA is 4.0 I had finished A&P 1&2, micro, psych, lifespan, and chem. my school ranked by test scores first, then consider GPA, so GPA didn't really matter when I applied. But they are changing that now and they'll start using a point system.

    My overall GPA was a 2.13

    Prereq GPA was a 3.6

    My school considers prereq GPA, TEAS V (I made a 90.7), and the essay.

    At the time of application, I had a 3.5 w/ physiology in progress. After acceptance, I had a 3.6. My school also looked at the TEAS. You got extra points for being bilingual, having volunteer/healthcare experience, and living/going to school in the area. I was waitlisted, but somehow managed to get in.

    I technically had a 1.9 GPA, but with academic forgiveness and being able to start over I had a 3.5 going into Nursing School. I got a 2.75 this semester in my first semester of nursing school.
