I graduated in December of 2012 with a 3.1 and am currently working in the ICU in central Illinois. I have an overall GPA of 3.09, a nursing GPA of 3.03, and a science GPA of 3.00. I am mostley interested in SIUE and am currently working on their pre-reqs of OChem and Physics, which I plan on (hopefully) getting A's in, or I know I can at least pull a B. My question is does anyone know if my low GPA will be good enough to make me a serious candidate or is it too low to the point where there will look at my app and pitch it in the trash. I really am passionate about the neurological system and how anesthesia works, but if my GPA wont get me in the door for an interview I wonder if it's honestly worth getting my hopes up. I'm going to try anyways, but if anyone has an input please feel free to let me hear it. Also, while SIUE is my first choice it is mainly because it's the closest. I am open to moving anywhere in the country if anyone has any advice on other schools
that may be more open to lower GPA's.
