Just wanted to get the opinion of either SRNAs, CRNAs, or anyone with experience I the CRNA admissions field. Below is a brief overview of my CV in regards to my applications for CRNA school. Let me know what you all may think my odds are and where I may want to improve. Thanks!

 

Undergrad GPA 3.2, will be taking stats soon with goal of getting A

Graduate level Patho taken: A recieved

GRE: 302 without writing

clinical experience: 9 months step down, 1.5 and counting of CTICU at two different level one trauma centers

ELSO Certified ECMO Specialist working in CTICU, SICU, and PICU

BLS, ACLS, PALS, CCRN and eventually going to obtain CSC subcert. 

Currently accumulating shadow hours in CVOR with anesthesia providers

6 years in Army National Guard, 4 of which were during undergrad. 

 

Thanks for the input!

I just recently interviewed and did not get accepted initially. I’m waiting to hear about waitlist. I say this to tell you that you should apply to several schools.

Your experience and credentials are certainly competitive. GPA is low but I see that you have taken some grad classes to make up for that. It’s a PITA but apply to several schools. My stats are competitive, I had my heart set on one school, I applied, interviewed and thought I was getting in. But I didn’t. 

I certainly think you are competitive. If you apply to 5 schools, I bet you get in. As long as you can interview well. Best of luck.

Thanks for the feedback Defibin’! I actually intend to apply to 7 schools. So may the odds be in my favor I guess!
