    I started at age 29. Most in my class are around 24-27. We have five or so people in their 30's and probably about 3 in their 40's.

    ADN at age 21. work in ICU after grad while working on BSN. Applied to CRNA school after 1 yr in ICU, at age 22. Started CRNA school at 23. This kid is the smartest person I've ever met. I guess that's what happens When you have plans early in life and stick to it.

    I'm guessing he/she had a 4.0 GPA, perfect GRE, no family/dependencies, high-acuity ICU experience, and good letters of recommendation, all on top of knowing what they wanted to do from the get go?

    Yup!! Experience was not high acuity though. But he knows theories more than any nurse with 15 yrs bedside experience.
