    Well, your stats are definately good. Interview well and I don't see why you wouldn't be accepted.

    I'm sure that many (including me) read your post and wish they were worried about such things. You have an excellent blend of experience and scores. As long as you talk a good game in the interview (practice in front of the mirror!) you'll be fantastic!
    Best of luck!

    I think will have a very complete application. I am not sure on the schools that you are applying to though. I think some schools put more weight than others on what your numbers say opposed to what you have actually accomplished.

    This was my concern. I am applying to 4 schools in the midwest and they are all very competitive. I appreciate the encouragement from everyone! It seems like a roller coaster ride waiting to find out!!

    I am not even a nurse yet. I will be in the nursing program next fall. My goal is to be a CRNA but i know it is very competitive. I've been focused on one school for the CRNA program in the midwest. Should i expand that and look at several schools? Does anyone know about or go to SIUE?? Thanks guys
