    Also, under the GPA calculation section, does it say "Information cannot be displayed"?? I feel like that's not a very promising sign...

    Mine says "There is no information to display." That said, I don't think we need to worry much about their GPA calculation system, or lack thereof. As long as your recommendations, transcripts, video, and personal statements are submitted in time, you will be in good shape. The rest is out of our hands!

    What kind of healthcare experience do people have here? Any LPNs, EMTs, or CNAs? I'm volunteering at a hospital right now, but I'm looking at a couple different "hands-on" patient care opportunities.

    I sent in an email regarding the gpa calculation on our nursing cas site. THey told me that as long as we have other materials in we are okay. The application still sends to the school and it is still viable.

    I haven't had any direct healthcare experience in say, a hospital, so I didn't really feel like I could add anything under that section of the application considering the way they defined it. I did a full time internship doing recreational therapy in an assisted living facility for a semester. I also worked for about a year as an in-home caregiver and got A LOT of hands on interaction at that job so I'm hoping those two experiences help!

    Ahoy everyone! Thought I would throw in my two cents since my application materials are finally all in place. I've worked as a home health aide and CNA forever. I totally recommend finding casual employment as an aide in a hospital--it's grueling, but it doesn't require much training and you can learn a ton about the nitty gritty of nursing (when my coworkers found out I was finally applying, they asked why on earth I'd go into nursing after all I've seen). Good luck to everyone!

    Has anyone heard any additional information from Georgetown since the initial e-mail saying they received your application? On the application guide, it said that they would be sending out information on the WHC Scholar application in mid February but I haven't heard anything else from them...

    I haven't heard anything since that preliminary email. Hoping for something soon just so I know the gears are moving!

    My GPA is finally calculated on the NursingCAS site! Hopefully this means we'll be getting more information soon

    Still no GPA calculation for me!

    Mine had to have just been posted because I've been checking it pretty frequently so I'm sure they'll have yours done soon too. Also, I e-mailed admissions asking about when we'd be getting the information on the WHC scholars program so I'll let everyone know if I hear back!

    GPA has posted for me on NursingCAS. The gears are turning once again!
