    It's hard to say just knowing your science GPA. A lot depends on your overall GPA, considerations, and whether or not you are partnered.

    Based on what my advisor has told me and what I have read online, if your overall GPA is lower than a 3.5, then you will probably not be competitive unless you are partnered or have at least a couple of considerations. As far as the HESI goes, I believe they are concerned with whether or not you passed, and not your actual score.

    Hope this helps somewhat. Good luck.

    Hi Frankiedarling,
    Your HESI is good enough for UTA, they just want a passing score. If I were you I would a) try to get a job with a partner hospital (this will greatly increase your chances) or b) keep retaking the science courses to get the science gpa as close to a 4.0 as you can. It may take more than one try but you can definitely do this! I would apply now, but know that it may take more than one try. Many in the program got in on their 2nd or 3rd try.
    Good Luck!
