I hope that I could get the answer from current students or alumni of Columbia University's CRNA program.
I'm currently in the BRN program right now from the West Coast: CSU Chico, California. I did really well on my pre-regs before ( As I recall I got all A's for all the science courses and other misc. required classes). The thing is every since I got in the BN program, I didn't do that well anymore. I haven't gotten any C's yet, but it's still not that impressive anymore: mostly Bs and some A minuses. I'm getting a little worried that this will reduce my chance to get accepted into some Master programs.
I heard someone told me before that as long as my GPA is above 3.5, it is still competitive? Is it really good enough? My current cumulative GPA is 3.8 right now. However, if they only consider on the grade while I'm in nursing school, the best shot I could get is 3.4 GPA so far. I'm wondering how much this would effect my chance with CRNA from Columbia?
Would the other factors like GRE, recommendations, experiences, & how good I will do on the entrance interview compensate for my low GPA?
Please, if anyone know something, give my some 2cents. Of course I will try to get better grade for the rest of my program, but I hope I could have some reassurance first and even motivate myself more.
