I applied too. Be honest as I won’t take offense, but what are my chances?

Overall GPA: 3.62

Unofficial GRE- 156V, 156Q, 4.0W (didn’t send but included on app since applied to other programs)

Nutrition-A

Stats-A

Chem 1/2-B/A-

Anatomy 1 and 2-B/B

Psychology-A

Microbiology-In Progress

Strong LOR’s (1 professional and the rest academic)

Healthcare related jobs:

2 yrs working as an Aide at an assisted living community

Held Part time jobs through undergrad

Economically disadvantaged, male (if diversity helps?), Latino 

Unfortunately I am unable to say what your chances are.

I know JHUSON looks at applicants holistically: your gpa, LOR, volunteer work, any type of work, basically everything you put in your application.

Your work experience should definitely help. I would think diversity helps as well.

I applied for early decision. My nursingCas application says complete, but I haven't received anything from the school saying they got it.

Same here. I think once NursingCAS verifies our grades and degrees, then it’ll be sent to JHU. As long as we submitted it by the deadline though, we are fine. NursingCAS states it may take up to 2 weeks for the verification process.

We will hear the decisions during the last week of December (I was told when I emailed). I hate doing the “waiting game”. 

Hopefully I hear back from other programs a bit sooner just in case. So paranoid and worried

JHUSON alum here.  You have a good chance.  JHUSON isn't just interested in GPA.  They highly value diversity and individuals with relevant life experience and volunteer experience.  Being a male and Latino will increase your chances.  Good luck!

Nursing CAS dropped my gpa from 3.48 to 3.37 and I’m not sure why/how. I think my letters of recommendation are pretty strong. I didn’t take the GRE but I had ~3.7 gpa in my medical assisting program and a little bit of an upward trend.  I had 1.5 years experience working in the radiology department of an ER and for a little over 2 years I’ve been an MA and clinical coordinator in a multi specialty practice.

Your profile looks  strong. People on previous threads have constantly complained about their GPA being dropped by nursingCAS, i guess  they have a  special way of calculating it.

 

Seems like everyone  has some healthcare experience, I don't and it makes me so nervous.

How did you apply for Early decision? I didn't see the option. I did however turn in my app and got verified before November 1st. Is that Early decision?

Thanks so much for your response. I hope I get in! John Hopkins is my first choice.
