Penn State Altoona


Hello all! I am currently transferring from El Paso Community College to PSU altoona in hopes of being accepted into their nursing program. My question is what is the likelihood of this happening. At my current college (EPCC) I have a 4.0 GPA and I've taken about 30 credits. I'm very nervous of being accepted because although I have a great GPA for college my high school GPA was not (2.4 in high school). I've applied to PSU altoona and right now I'm just waiting on my transcripts to be sent and processed. I'm just wondering if anyone else has gone through this and what you think my chances are.

PS the reason for the huge move(Texas to Pennsylvania) and transfer of schools is because my husband is getting out of the army.
