There seems to be a lot of questions on how important GPA is to get into a program. So I decided to start a thread where people can see , and average them out. We can all speculate on the importance, but to see the numbers,... Read More

    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!!!
