Accelerated programs - worried about GPA in previous BA degree!

  1. I'm applying for a few accelerated programs but I'm worried that my GPA in my previous degree won't be high enough for acceptance. Most schools require a GPA of 3.00 for the previous BA/BS, and I have a 3.01. However, I have a 4.0 in my prereqs and have taken several supplementary and/or optional courses all with a 4.0 GPA. I also have pretty extensive volunteer experience, but I'm worried that my lack of determination and ambition towards my first degree will overshadow the determination and desire I have towards what I feel is my true calling! Any suggestions?

    Also to those of you in or graduated from an accelerated program, how much weight did your previous BA/BS GPA have? How important was it in getting into your BSN program? Did it have more weight than more recent prerequisite courses taken?
