    destined2bCRNA, I'll totally be your 1st new best friend if I get in!
    Are you finishing up prereqs this semester? Are you currently at UIC or somewhere else?

    mvanz9999, I'm also applying to the GEP program at UIC. I'm hoping to get into it or into the BSN program--I'll be happy with either. Good luck to you!!

    Wildorchid- my second new best friend :roll Yes, I dropped the deposit and confirmation off- hadn't heard from them so visited Andrea Schmoyer on Monday. She told me that they haven't set a date yet for orientation, but she will email all of us as soon as they do. By the way CONGRATULATIONS!!! As you can tell I'm so psyched, lol. A true nerd at heart...

    Like I said before....I applied and am waiting for a letter. April just seems soooo far off! It doesn't help that the weather is bad and I am stuck inside all the time thinking about if I will get in or not. School helps a little to pass the time...

    Congratulations on your acceptance, guys!

    And now for a few questions from someone who is a nervous wreck applying for Fall '08...

    1) Can you guys give me an idea of what your stats were or the overall average GPAs of the incoming class?
    -I'm really scared about my GPA because I really screwed up my freshman year of a cumulative GPA of a 2.8. And my question also involves... what determines the GPA they are looking for? The pre-req classes only? or ALL of the classes.. even if they were just like the CHEM 101 which was just the the prep chem class for CHEM 112 ? I also took Calc (for fun) which ended up screwing me over because I received a C in the class which brought me down tremendously because it was a 5 credit class.
    When I apply...
    -My cum GPA = 3.0
    -My pre-req GPA will be 3.4
    -My science GPA is 3.2

    I attended UIC during that freshman year and now I am currently at Oakton finishing up the rest of the pre-reqs (Orgo, A&P I and II, Nutrition, and Dev Psych), and will have a very high GPA of a 3.8-4.0.

    My second question is...
    2) Do you think they will see it as a step down that I'm now attending a community college(for any reason) but am doing phenomenal in? I'm really debating to myself if I should return to UIC for the upcoming spring semester in hopes of having some sort of advantage ?

    I know GPA is not the only think they consider, but I know it is VERY important. I heard the average GPA accepted now is about a 3.5!! blah
    I think other than my GPA will put me into a competitive running... I volunteer and shadow nurses a few hours every week, and I've gone through a CNA program over the summer.

    Any input would be appreciated. I'm such a nervous wreck because of my GPA that one year! I really want to get into UIC's BSN program.
