    I am not offended, I feel like I got into a high quality school and am happy with my decision. Just don't want people to be closed minded when it comes to alternative lists. I would rather have gotten into my top choice off the alternative list than to continue my search just to find another school that will let me in.

    That's great Bagola congratulations!!

    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.
