So I had a quick question that I didn't see covered in any of their explanations, this is more on the worry side of things...I did their point measuring system and I come out at 8.5/11, I unfortunately will have to do an algebra course so I didn't get that last 1pt which would have me at 9.5/11 but alas that's an issue for another day.  My question...  is if there is an extra benefit to applying with a masters. Will there be some better chance when they see my degree or will they just add both the GPAs of the masters and bachelors together and come up with the points similarly to what I did.  Has anyone ever applied to the ABSN with a masters that could enlighten me, or anyone have some insight regardless.  Anything is appreciated.  Thanks!

it is to my understanding that Kent State does not factor in a master's degree, previous healthcare experience, volunteering, etc. They only go by the cumulative GPA and the science GPA, and extra points for whether you have completed the prereqs + extra "blue" courses at the time of application. I was told that even in progress "blue" courses give the extra point at the time of application, whereas the main science prereqs have to be completed in order to get the extra point. So if you're looking to up your points, register for some of the "blue" courses for fall (assuming you're applying for spring?) before you apply so they'll be considered in progress.
