    I was accepted into MTSU's program and started in Spring 2012. My GPA was 3.3, HESI score of 86, and my interview score was a 4.0. I also got the optional 0.5 point for work experience (CNA or LPN qualifies). The interview score was a big boost to my overall score. I just want to let you know that it is do able even if your GPA is not the highest. Good luck everyone!! :-)

    Crazygoonlpn, I would LOVE to pick your brain I just sent off my app to MTSU's SON and I'm a nervous wreck! lol! Does everyone that sends in an application get to interview? And when do they start sending out the acceptance letters for spring? I hope that you aren't offended by my frankness and bombardment with questions. I want to be accepted so badly and this is so important to me!

    I heard that not everyone who applies gets an interview. I think it's because all requirements were not met by the applicant. My interview was in October and I received my acceptance letter (sent certified mail) the 2nd week of November. When you go into the interview the 2 instructors only know your name and that you are applying to the program. The only other info they have on you is what you say in the interview. This allows them to give you a fair score without knowing your GPA, HESI score or healthcare background. Good luck!!!! :-)
