    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.

    I applied twice and got in the second time with a GPA of 3.7
  3. 0
    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.

    Quote from FutureCRNA?
    My GPA was a little over 3.7. My school (a state university with a BSN program) uses GPA to determine acceptance, contingent on meeting all the other criteria. I believe I heard that the lowest admitted GPA generally is around a 3.4. Usually about 150 people apply and about 75 are accepted.

    I've completed 1 semester of 4 so far with a 4.0. I have my eye on CRNA school in the future!!!
    That's great!!!
