    Our local community college does not have a competative process. It is a first-come-first-served process. If you're really concerned about being accepted and your community has a program like this, you may want to apply to something like this in addition to applying to the competative program. That way you're covered.

    Thanks so much for all the replies I really appreciate it. I have a 3.8 in my prereqs and a 3.6 overall. I am taking o-chem and A&P 1 right now so I am sure my gpa will be slightly lower after this quarter. Next quarter I am taking micro and A&P 2. At my school (community college) the majority of your points come from your gpa. There are a total of 12 points available, yes I said 12. They are pretty hard to get into so we will see... Thanks again for the replies!

    probably 3.85. 1000 applicants, they took 70. If you didn't have a 3.5 you didn't get in, except for 1 or 2 individuals who came in and personally convinced the decision makers to take a chance on them.
    No entrance exams

    I had a 3.6 overall GPA
    3.89 GPA in nursing pre-reqs
    no medical experience

    I think there were around 350 applicants and I was one of the 56 that got in. In addition to GPA we had to have 3 letters of recommendation and had to write an essay. There was no interview, thank God (I suck at interviews). I interviewd at my 2nd and 3rd choice schools and didn't get accepted.

    pre-reqs gpa - 4.0
    overall/transfer gpa - 3.39

    It is really important to have A's in your science pre-reqs. This is what is going to set you apart from other applicants with similar gpa's.

    Good Luck!

    At my school we have to take an entrance test which counts for 3 points and then our gpa for a total of 7. I applied with a 3.67
