Quote from Papple
my science gpa is a 3.0
my overall gpa is a 3.25
I took 2 of my sciences at a community college over the summer and got a B. Im taking micro this fall and im going to end up with a B. I"m taking a&p 2 next semester. Im registering for the traditional program.
My gpa is so low compared to you guys. I dont know if i have a chance of getting in the program. :/ Im thinking about applying to the honors program. What do you guys think?
You know the sad thing is that these are good grades, but we all twist ourselves into pretzels if we don't do better. I don't want to be down, Papple, but I would really consider retaking your sciences if finances and timing make it possible. I cannot stress enough how important it is to make A's in your sciences and as many A's as possible in the other prerequ's. Even those who have really high GPA's still have difficulty being accepted. I'm sorry, I am not trying to be discouraging, just honest. I hope you are not offended.
Your chances also increase if you are working for a hospital that partners with the program. This will help a lot. Threads for prior semesters have shown that some with lower GPA's get accepted and they are employed by a partner hospital, so that provided the help when their grades may have it impossible to get in otherwise.
Alternatively, what you might also consider is going to LVN school and then doing an LVN to RN bridge program. From there, you can then later do an RN to BSN bridge.
