I just recently graduated with a BS in Animal Science from Cornell. I am interested in becoming a family nurse practitioner. How competitive are Direct Entry MSN programs? I decided that getting into a direct entry program would be more beneficial versus a ABSN program. Any thoughts? I am particularly interested in UMASS Worcester GEP program if anyone knows how competitive that school is to get into.

Direct entry programs are competitive but certainly not impossible to get into. It is definitely worth applying. Some direct entry programs even have acceptance rates above 50%.

That's great news, congrats! Did you say that you were bilingual? In my case, I'm half caucasian and half hispanic. Not sure if that gives me some sort of an edge being only 50% hispanic.
