    I wish the prereq GPA was 3.3. I have a friend that got B's and C's in her prereq classes here and she moved to Florida to get into nursing school. She was excepted on her first try, good for her I guess, but it's upsetting to me because I started school before her, got perfect grades (unlike her), and had to take more classes than she did and she's currently in a program while I'm stressing out about just making it past the first round of applicants. My old roommate didn't even have to take any prereqs to get into a program in North Carolina. Her program only requires a 3.0 high school GPA, pass high school chem with a C- or better, and pass Algebra 2 with a C- or better...... in other words - just graduate from high school with an OK/average GPA. I guess I'm being a little rude, it's just disheartening when you work hard and struggle when others don't even need to try.

    My school combined three different scores to figure the points. The lowest acceptable GPA was 2.75 in prereqs, I just found out that I got into the program and I had a 3.08 in the prereq classes. The HESI exam and the number of curses in the major were also taken into consideration. I think I had the lowest score of anybody accepted this semester, so I'm definitely not the norm. Divine intervention had to have been in play for my admissions process!

    I applied to 6 community colleges with a 4.0 pre-req GPA and 3.43 overall GPA. My TEAS was 70%. 1 school is lottery and the rest are points based. I have known people to have 4.0 GPA not get in and I've known people with 3.0 get in. Its such a toss in the air these days. Good luck everyone. The best thing to be is PERSISTENT!
