I have talked to many CRNA's and have found that not all of them have a 3.8 GPA, and some even bombed the GRE. They were persistent and able to sell themselves. A stellar academic record doesn't mean you are or will be a great nurse on the floor. Your capabilities can be reflected in another way.
Not sure where the idea that if you got accepted with a less than stellar academic record then the school must not be any good comes from. The people I spoke to personally got accepted to the number one and two CRNA schools in my state, and we have quite a few. Out of the nine, some had the "3.8 GPA" and others didn't.
