Hi, I'm planning to apply to nursing school for fall 2008 this year. My overall GPA is a 3.7 and my prerequisite GPA is a 3.6. Do any of you think I have a chance of getting in? ( I"m going to apply to Wayne state University in Detroit if that helps any) What GPA did you have when you were admitted?

Wayne State is a very hard nursing program to get admitted to. You must submit an essay and they are prejudice against pre-req coursework that was not completed at their school. I was planning to apply to WSU but I transferred to Eastern Michigan U becuase they admit students rank-order by GPA, that is the only criteria. I think that is fair. You should consider EMU next year as a second choice. WSU admits about 120 students out of over 1000 students, EMU admits 80 out of less than 300.

I was admitted to SFSU for Fall. I had a pre-req GPA of 3.85, overall at 3.55. However, I am doing a second bachelor's. I've worked at three major medical universities in CA with 7 years experience in the medical field. I also have several hundred hours of volunteer work starting from 2000 until now.

I don't know how WSU works (my friend just graduated from there but for Socio) for nursing, so they might rank GPA, volunteer work, medical experience differently than SFSU.
