Hello!:yeah: I know it's pretty early to be starting this forum, but I just wanted to put my voice out there and see if there is anyone else out there hoping to join TWU's nursing program in the spring of 2013? What are you... Read More

    I get it. I was merely asking if their GPA they posted included the bump or not. So like if they posted 3.5 if I needed to add .2 to it or not. That is all.

    A lot of people include their "bump" when they post their GPA if in fact they qualify for said "bump".

    "Students who complete 32 or more semester credit hours of the required non-nursing lower division courses at TWU and meet the minimum criteria for admission into the upper division nursing program will have 0.40 grade points added to their grade point average for consideration for admission into upper division."

    Yes/No is used for bachelor degree. It counts just like an extra "first A attemp" according to what the advisor posted here few days ago.

    Somehow my post got confused by how I worded it. Yes, I have memorized every single bit of what is posted on twu.edu/nursing. I was asking the person [the person who I quoted] - if they included their bump when they posted their GPA. Nothing other than that they merely said I got a "something.(point)something" and I was just asking if they included the BUMP in that GPA. I don't need a bunch of people to explain the procedure to me - I know it already. I'm not trying to sound rude - I'm just saying I know how they calculate already...

    Thanks for the information. I will apply next year. I am glad to know that my degree will count somehow. Congrats to all of you who got in. For the ones who didn't, don't give up. I heard the numbers change every semester, it all depends on the level of all applicants. Good luck!

    My gpa is as is; I did not add 0.4 to it since I didn't believe it to be a true gpa bump as sshuman said. I merely wanted to indicate that I completed the minimum 16 hours at TWU.

    I was told by my advisors that the .4 bump is not actually a gpa bump. She said it is filled out as a "yes" or "no" on their spreadsheet. If you look at the gpa calculator it only says "yes" or "no" as well. I thought I would have .4 added to my gpa at first but was corrected when I saw my advisor in August. She said it used to add .4 but now it just acts as a preference. I dont know how they figure it out on the spread sheet but the advisor laughed when I said "Ohh so I get an addition 0.4 added." It is quite confusing, if you ask me!

    Also, I didnt mean to sound like I was explaining the procedure. The student you asked is actually one of my friends, which is why I responded. A lot of things are misunderstood or are not clear about the procedure which has confused me immensely. I was just trying to help.
