Quote from TWiersch
I realize they are competency based. However, I wonder if there is some way that they can make a change in the outgoing GPA seen by other universities. It is the greatest disadvantage I can see at WGU. I still plan to go there even though I had possibly hoped to become and NP.
I was told by the representative that because they are competency based there is no way of judging what is an A or B. For example, there are multiple times you are able to take a test (I think about 3) and that is why they cannot give A's or B's. She was very honest and warned me that depending on the school, this could pose a problem for people who seek past a Bachelors. I don't think it'll be a problem for people who live in the Midwest but for myself who lives in California and am planning on applying to California schools
, this would definitely be a problem.
To add to that, I spoke with Cal State Fullerton, Cal State Long Beach and Azusa Pacific Master programs and they said a 3.0 is not competitive at all. It is actually their bare minimum when applying. HOWEVER, if you have years of experience, this could outweigh their decision. Hope this helps anyone in Cali!
