    Yep been checking that email in addition to my personal one. I plan to call Monday to see what I can find out if no contact before then. I want to get started on the first!

    Okay, I couldn't wait until Monday lol. The student service rep said that I may not hear from my mentor by the first day, just sometime during the first week, because mentors have a large number of students in their groups with different start dates and so it takes time to contact everyone. However, he said to continue checking email frequently for instructions because I will be able to access/complete EWB on the first even if I haven't talked with my mentor. My main concern was getting started on time so I can relax a little now!

    The NP program I want to attend accepts WGU's degree on paper but the admin office finds the lack of GPA "strange" I refuse to apply in this academic climate with anything viewed as "strange" so I have to stay with Excelsior for my BSN. Enjoy guys.

    Sorry you will not be joining the race.
    May I ask which NP program you are referring to?
    I am planning on completing the BSN and jumping right onto the Masters and then doing a post master's somewhere else.

    Central Florida.The website states that as long as the BSN is CCNE accredited that it is fine but I like to try and speak with a human being and the words "I just find the lack of GPA strange" was enough for me to change direction. Besides, I am a good test taker and know that I can get at least a 3.5 at EC so there it is. Will take me longer and cost me 8k instead of 4k but my ultimate goal is NP and I'll be really ticked if my choice in BSN program blocks me from it.

    I was told that when a transcript is issued, that a GPA is also issued as a 3.0 on the transcript that is given.
    This is what my mentor told me when I asked about it, and she is also a graduate of WGU.

    True. The GPA is listed as a 3.0 at the bottom of the transcript but next to each class is a P not a grade so if anyone is looking to see where you may be stronger/weaker to determine your fitness they are in the dark. Thats how it was explained to me anyway. I'm just not willing to take a chance for a maximum 3.0.
