    What is net score? (NET test?)
    Nurse Entrance Test. It's a test some schools use to determine entrance into the nursing program. It measures basic math and reading comprehension.

    Mine was a 3.8

    I don't know what number I was on the acceptance list, but they said the average GPA for our entering class was a 3.6

    My school bases entrance on GPA and ACT scores only. No NET, no interview, etc.

    At my school the published GPA is 2.7 however, the actual GPA varies from semester to semester. I believe it really depends on how many folks apply and what their GPA's are. So if you have 50 slots open and 150 people apply for those slots and most of those folks who are "qualified" out of the 150 have a GPA of 3.7 or higher, then the cutoff GPA for that semester would be 3.7. The next semester that could fall to 3.4 or rise to 3.9. It all depends on how many "qualified" applicants apply and what their GPA's are.

    Same with my school, only accepting students by Compass test/ACT scores and G.P.A . They also "publish 2.5 gpa to be considered," but I haven't met anyone who was accepted with anything lower than a 3.0

    I had a 3.86

    I had a 3.9.. just a B in speech and a B in english II (that's what a 3 week course will do to you!)

    Good thing my school only uses the NET test for determining if students need to be in a 'success' program and take 5 semesters instead of 4.. cause I did pretty awful on it.. but not bad enough to take the 5 semesters, heh.

    I think the cutoff GPA this semester was 3.67.

    1500 SAT, 740v/670m/5w GRE, no technical GPA (gooooooo UCSC banana slugs!), but probably around a 3.2 ish? God bless standardized testing and Columbia's reliance thereon!!! :roll

    Well, I attended college right out of high school about 15 years ago, and I now have a GPA of 2.7. I am now getting A's in my nursing courses, but it's very hard to bring up a GPA. My new theory is as long as I pass my nursing classes with the required 75%, who cares what my GPA is! It's too late to fix it now...

    I had 53 credits including my prereqs when I was accepted into my ADN program. They accept 64 students each semester, and the minimum GPA for last semester was a 3.7. I had a 4.0. BTW, it's now midterm of the 1st semester, and 12 of our class are already gone. However, the remainder seem to have grown together nicely into a cohesive and quite varied group. In my clinical rotation group of 8 alone, there is one with a military medical background (me), 2 lawyers, one of whom also has a journalism degree, a fellow with a masters in chemistry, a social worker, a foreign-trained physician, and 2 women who are "normal" college students!
