Competition is tough in the Chicagoland area to gain access into many of the nursing programs. After speaking with my top 3 choices of Universities it has become clear that a 4.0 is your way in. I am beginning my final year of prereq's at a CC and have double even triple checked that all my classes will transfer. I am taking the prereqs for all 3 Universities so that I may apply to all 3 for my best chance. Currently I sit with a 4.0 but the stress to keep it is killing me! Not too mention I begin my 3rd year of prereqs just to set it up so I can apply to all 3 of my choices. Ugh, I wish it were over before it's even begun!!Anyone else finding that a 4.0 is your way in?
