I currently go to Schoolcraft college and was hoping to get some help and honest advice about my chances of being accepted into WSU's school of nursing. I have just finished my prereqs with a GPA of a 3.8. Although, I still have to take Microbio. I had one retake in A+P but the 2nd time I took it, I got a 4.0. My overall is a 3.4 and all of my classes have been taken through schoolcraft. I am taking the TEAS in August so i can be put on the waitlist for Schoolcrafts nursing program as a backup plan. I plan to volunteer this summer as well in a hospital and do other community services. I'm also a white female (I don't know if this means anything). I have been working really hard for this and WSU is my top choice. My advisor told me that it's still going to be challenging because even with almost a 4.0 in all of my classes and volunteer work and that one retake, they still might not even look at me because of how competitive it is and they take retakes very seriously. Does anyone have their own experience, possibly with being a transfer student there?

I went to Wayne State University from 2014-2017 in the traditional program. I did all my pre reqs at Wayne State so I might not be helplful for your situation. When I applied, I had a 4.0 in all the pre-reqs like A and P and micro and whatever else there was. I had no volunteer work on my resume. I applied and I got in. The main thing they looked at when I applied was good grades for the pre reqs for the nursing school. From what I was told, they barely looked at volunteer work. Also, there is no interview (I am not too sure if it changed) so pretty much submit your application and that was it. From talking to my friends who were transfer students, they had OK grades and still got in. I would say apply there because a retake is not that bad. I wish you luck and it is a somewhat difficult program but as long as you keep a studying schedule, it is not bad at all.

Thank you for replying to my post. I have a 3.9 in A&P and and have a 4.0 in all my other prerequisites but i still have to take chem and basic bio. I went to one of the info sessions and they do require at least 10 hours of volunteer work. Luckily, I just signed myself up for 100 hours of it. I believe I have a good chance of getting in but I am also nervous about that retake.
