    BS in Business GPA 3.5
    Diploma RN GPA 3.0
    Science GPA 4.0
    GRE 960 writing 4/6
    ACLS, PALS, no CCRN yet
    1.5 years exp in Cardiac ICU at time of interview
    4 years Firefighter / EMT
    2 years ED tech
    Great interviewing skills

    I was accepted to 2 schools probably because I tend to interview well. Don't give up if your qualifications don't look so good on paper.

    The best of luck to you and wish me luck in CRNA school!
