    Low GPA, High Pre Requisites

    Even with my GPA I score pretty high in most ADN programs even if they factor in Cumulative. Moorpark College, closest to my home is my best shot and I easily have a good enough score. Depending on my TEAs I'll have about an 88. I was reading past cohorts getting in with a score of 75. I just didn't want to spend 2 years for an ADN when I can spend 15 months for a BSN. If Concordia doesn't work out this may be my only route. Moorpark gives an extra 10 points for Bachelors which is really good. Here is their criteria: https://www.moorparkcollege.edu/sites/default/files/files/departments/academic/nursing/multicriteria_selection_01.21.15_0.pdf Moorpark has a workshop on 10/22 if anyone wants to sign up.

    Low GPA, High Pre Requisites

    I'm in the Ventura area.. I was looking at CSUSM and according to the average amount of points people got in with the last few years I would barely make the cut. Too bad it is too far from my wife's hospital and I couldn't justify driving 3 hours a day, bummer!

    Low GPA, High Pre Requisites

    I agree with you all that it will be tough to get into an ABSN program. I shouldn't have a tough time getting into a CC ADN program. I've looked at their multicriteria and my point total is pretty high when I calculate it out depending on my TEAs score. Moving out of California is a no go since my wife is a nurse and I cannot relocate my family. I've read threads of CC applicants getting in with X score and I'm above that score so ADN may be my only route. I will still apply to ABSN programs just incase.

    Thank you Amanda! That is wonderful to hear. Did you have a meeting with the counselor or did they say this at an infosession? Also, where did you apply? Best of luck!

    Low GPA, High Pre Requisites

    I graduated from UCSD with my bachelor's in Sociology 2011 with a 2.4 GPA. I recently went back to school to take Nursing pre reqs. My cumulative is ~2.8 GPA. I have a 4.0GPA in my sciences (chem, microbiology, physiology, anatomy). I've heard that some colleges look at your last 60 units which would put me at a 3.15GPA. (My last 40 units is a 3.8 but I'm including 20 from 2011 which drags my GPA down). What are my chances at getting into a ABSN program (CSUN, Concordia in Irvine, CSULA)? Perhaps private versus CSU may be the way to go. Would they consider that I am not the same person I was in 2011 and they can clearly see that I am focused and have done nearly perfect since coming back to school and having life experience. I would definitely explain my situation in the essay or interview. How about my chances at an ADN program at the community college level? Thanks for reading!
