I was looking at the Samuel Merritt college website and I saw this:
[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]"GPA: We are looking for a student with an academic record that clearly indicates their ability to be successful in graduate school. The average GPA for entering students is about 3.5, although we will look carefully at late trends for those who appeared "less than focused" during early years of college. Basic science grades are an important indicator of academic ability"
Hmm...what does "'less than focused' during early years of college" mean? I take that statement to mean that someone who graduated their ADN nursing program with a GPA of 3.0 or so, and then their BSN program with a 3.5 or above, someone who basically improved academically, will be rejected just because they were "less than focused" their freshman year of college.
Yuck. (I failed a math class before I started nursing school).
