I'm applying for the Master's Entry program for Fall 2016!! I'm so excited but so scared! Currently studying for the GRE & plan to take last 2 prereqs in the Spring. Any advice on a good GRE score? I have a 3.67 GPA right now & am graduating in December.

Okay, that makes sense! It seemed as though the ABSN no longer existed. I'm applying for the same at UM for Spring 2016, because I really didn't want to take the GREs. Kind of a dumb reason, but also, the JHU program is so expensive! Although I just had a dream last night that I didn't get into UM, so that wasn't fun.

Actually there are! It's a pretty big misconception but direct entry CRNA programs DO exist! Boston University and Columbia University offer them and I'm applying to both!

Columbia has a direct CRNA program for those that do not have a BSN?!? I applied to Columbia too but didn't see this...

those are really high stats.... everyone has really high stats! how's it possible?!!! going to a school cut throat like UCLA, an A is like nearly impossible in the science classes. Chemistry is taken with pre-meds.

It's pretty scary, most nursing schools are so competitive that you need a stellar GPA (as well as the rest of your app) in order to get accepted. I don't know if where you go really matters for most places, but when I spoke with admissions at John Hopkins they said that a 3.5 from UCLA (currently attending too) was sufficient, assuming the rest of your application was decent too. Some places to seem to take a more holistic view than others; from my encounters of speaking with staff both on the phone and personally, it seems that UCLA is much harder to get into than JHU or Columbia. I could be wrong, but that is just the impression I got. I literally feel that I have no shot of getting into UCLA, which sucks because it's my #1 choice.

And yeah, pretty much all your science classes will be taken with pre-meds, but it's not like competition to get into nursing school isn't high as well. I don't expect the rigor of UCLA to be greater than that of the nursing programs..
