    Hopefully someone can help me out. I have a bachelors in political science and have been an enlisted corpsman in the military for several years now working in preventive medicine. My undergrad GPA is 3.1 and my pre-req GPA is 3.6. I haven't taken the GRE yet but I'm nervous I may need to retake the micro class to get my B up to an A. What do you all think? Any help is much appreciated.

    Hi Corpsmanup,

    JHU no longer requires the GRE and I had a B+ in Micro and was accepted. My undergrad GPA was higher but your medical experience is without a question more extensive than mine. There is so much they consider. I would say go for it.

    A JHUSON advisor told me never to bother with retaking a course to bump it from a B to an A. They will really value your experience, so let that ring true in your essays and resume. There is no page limit on your resume and they told me to utilize this opportunity to "tell your story" by describing your professional roles and adding any special projects you may have done. The advisors are often willing to review your materials in advance and give you advice on how to strengthen them. I took advantage of this, had my transcripts, resume and essays reviewed by an admissions officer before submitting my app! I am currently waitlisted for Fall.

    I hope this helps!

    Hi All-

    Any tips on the 2 essays required for the application? I can't find the details of what each should be about? Any suggestions?

    Hi, what they want you to write about should be on the nursecas site, but I can check once I have my laptop.

    As I remember, they gave us three essay prompts, and you had to do two. One (the mandatory one) was about why you want to enter nursing/become a nurse. The other two (you could choose between them): 1) give an example of how you used critical thinking to solve a problem or 2) talk about how you responded in a situation that challenged your own values and cultural framework. Something like that. They should be listed on the NursingCAS site.

    Anyone know the policy for waitlisted candidates who are accepted and want to defer/postpone enrollment by a year? Is that possible?

    I would assume that it would be that same as any accepted student, that you would be able to defer till next year but im not completely sure. you should try calling the admissions and ask. did you already hear back about acceptances from the waitlist?

    Hello,folks. I will try to catch up on all posts after exams (so end of next week at soonest), but I am a current JHU Cohort 6 student perusing the forums. My name is Olutope O.and I am happy to take personal messages on LinkedIn unless someone is able to explain how to do it on this forum. I am most recently from Indianapolis, IN, and have professional interests in lactation, health policy, global health and nutrition.

    I'm curious too... has anyone else from the waitlist heard back?

    Hey all! I have been watching this thread for a bit and finally decided to post, because I saw that people were talking about waitlist. I accepted my spot on the waitlist about a month and a half ago. I called admissions today and was told that they haven't sent out anything about open spots on the waitlist yet. The woman I spoke to said thay they're hoping to send out waitlist notifications mid-May.
