I am shortly going to be applying to the upper division of the accelerated online bsn program at UTA (University of Texas at Arlington)and feel anxious about my prospects.
-I already have a bachelor's degree in cell biology and neuroscience (also if this helps at all it was from a very large & prominent school on east coast, not Ivy League but in the big 10-very academically challenging)
-My HESI accumulated score was a 94 (94 on math, grammar, reading comprehension, 96 on vocabulary), I also took the science portion and scored well on it but apparently they don't count that so I guess it doesn't matter (88 anatomy, 94 biology, 100 chemistry)
-I have a really subpar gpa, a 3.4 average and 3.0 science. That will be my gpa at the time of my application. If I can get all A's in my remaining prerequisites, which I'm fairly confident I can do, my average and science gpa will be a 3.6 which is better but I don't know if they even take into account your gpa post application unless it drastically decreases.
What do you guys think? Also I'm very confused about the people who work at partnered hospitals get priority thing. Am I supposed to be applying to hospitals before I even have my degree?
Thanks in advance for advice!
