Hey everyone! Has anyone applied to Gwynedd Mercy's May 2019 cohort for their ABSN program? I was wondering what everyone's GPA was. I have a bachelors in exercise science and graduated with a 3.4 GPA and my prereq GPA so far is a 3.1 not including nutrition and organic biochemistry. I feel Luke that is not enough to get in but I am still hopeful!

I actually applied for the Fall 2019 start term on September 05, 2018 and I received a call of acceptance into the program on September 24, 2018. I thought that the decision was quite fast as I was told it normally takes 30-90 days for an admission's decision, but I guess I was lucky. My cum. GPA as of right now is 3.44 (Will be graduating with a Bachelors in Psychology and my prerequisite GPA as of right now is 3.47 (I still have to take Microbiology, Organic Biochemistry, and A&P 2). To complement my application, I attached a resume, personal statement and a letter of recommendation. Even though these items were not required, I added it anyway just to increase my chances of being accepted.

Hi! Congrats on getting accepted! I will be starting May 2019 at the Bensalem campus. I still have to take Microbio, A&P 2, and Biochem this Spring 2019. I think the orientation on October 30th is for students that have been accepted for the January 2019 start date.

Yeah, my counselor (Sharon Summers) has not informed me of orientation. Also I am taking Biochem (CHEM 118) at Community College of Philadelphia in the Spring.

No, Biochem is in-class at CCP. You might want to talk to your counselor and ask of online Biochem courses as I am sure she knows of some.

Just to let you know! I've created a facebook group, "Gwynedd Mercy ABSN (Bensalem) May 2019", for people attending the Bensalem campus in May 2019. You may want to join so that we all can connect.

Hello, I was accepted to the Philadelphia campus. Students get accepted to different campuses for the same terms?
