Hey everybody! I've been an allnurses quiet reader for quite some time now, but never an op. Exciting!
I'm a bit nervous, to put it lightly, as I've just applied to the 2019 spring cohort traditional BSN pathway at CU Denver. As I continue to read through others experiences in applying to nursing schools, and especially CU, I feel the competitive weight getting heavier and heavier.
I'm not a terrible student, as I'm sitting on about 100 credits at a 3.5GPA. To be honest, I'm pretty impressed it's even a 3.5, as my first 15 credits I had a 1.9GPA fresh out of high-school seven years ago before I took a university leave. My pre-req GPA sits at a 3.9, I've got 50hrs of volunteer work, and have shadowed two full-day major organ transplant surgeries (at UCHealth) - overall, not as much as I was hoping to accumulate.
I guess, should I be as worried as I am? I feel like my beginning credits will weigh me down heavily, as they drop my cumulative to a 3.5 from my pre-req 3.9; this includes straight A's in every science course, and a single B in dev. psych.
I've got 2 months until I know anything at all, and it's driving me nuts! What do any of you all think? Should I be so worried?
