I am planning on applying to Direct Entry MSN (Family NP track) programs this upcoming Fall 2013 to begin in the Summer of 2014. Seattle University's APNI program is my top choice and I was wondering if anyone is IN the program who applied with a low cumulative GPA. My GPA from my last two years was 3.8, but combined with my first 2 years my cumulative is a 3.23 :/
I have all As in my science pre-reqs so far and still need to take the GRE. I have also been working as a research study coordinator for the last 2.5 hrs at a large medical center. Can anyone from SU's APNI program know if the program actually looks at the "whole applicant" or is there known to be a GPA cutoff for the app to even be reviewed.
Does anyone know how many people apply and how many get in?
If anyone has suggestions of other schools that look mainly at the last 2 years' gpa (ie. UIC) or the whole applicant, please let me know!
Thanks in advance for your help!
