I'm so glad I found this forum so there could be a support system of nurses. I am currently in Memphis, TN and just graduated college. i have decided that nursing school is the path for me. I have a low gpa from undergrad(2.64) but I know that I can do so much better. I haven't taken any of the prereqs and I know if I take them I can do much better. What do you think my chances are of getting into Lowenberg? I am thinking of going on the accelerated route since I already have a BA. How do I strengthen my application and do you think that I should apply at all? What does the admissions committee look for in a candidate?
@Stanford88 Thanks so much for the reply. I have a couple of questions for you. Are you automatically guaranteed admission with a 2.7 or do they take the highest GPA's? Are there a limited number of seats? Also, since I haven't taken any of the prereqs, do you think it is alright to take them from Southwest? Since I have an undergrad degree, I have some of the english classes. Should i just do the prereqs such as nutrition, a&p, and Microbiology? I would love to get started ASAP as soon as I finish my prereqs. If I do apply for Spring 2013 then do you think it is alright if I am finishing up my prereqs in Fall of 2012 so I can get started immediately and don't have to wait an extra sem? Good luck on your application! Also do you know anything about financial aid?
