    Being as all this may, and everyone has brought up some great points about "scores" versus being a good nurse; however the fact remains in many areas of the country new grads with a GPA below a certain level aren't considered by the major systems.

    NYP, NYU amoung others want to see at least 3.0 overall GPA (NYU is 3.5) often with no "C" grades in nursing or science courses.
    This follows most NYC area nursing programs wanting minimum of 3.0 overall and or including sciences in pre-nursing in order to apply for admission onto the nursing program. Just having that 3.0 often isn't enough these days as applicant pools have swelled with large numbers of students with GPA's at or >3.5

    Stanford-Binet. Just sayin'.

    Every reply was brilliant. We must all be at least 150 if not higher!!! Never heard from the original poster???? I still wonder if it was a gag?

    I do believe the Stanford-Binet is a good, valid, picture of a person.....but I am still certain I never had one?

    I just wish politicians had to have a Stanford-Binet along with some science classes before running for office!
