Well, I cut and pasted the text right from the email I received from the admissions department, so that is just what I was told by the person that I happened to get a hold of. I wrote them back and told them that info conflicted with the info they list on their website. I remember going to an info session and they did say that although the MINIMUM GPAs are 2.75 and 3.0, competitive scores are 3.5 and above...but that was for only the pre-reqs and the sciences. The person I spoke to said that the admissions committee looks at 3 GPAs, pre-req, science, and overall...the website says they look at 2 GPAs and "consider overall academic achievement. I am sorry, but even with a 3.1, I consider a BS from A&M an academic achievement! My major was hard and I had to work at the same time! Like Kimbers said, we aren't applying to Harvard! It makes zero sense to weigh non-related classes to the pre-req classes, but last semester I had above a 3.5 in both pre-req and science, and 96.7% on the HESI and I got denied, so my 3.1 GPA in my previous degree must have been enough to outweigh those other factors. I asked to speak to someone else and my email has not been replied to yet (maybe it never will be), so maybe I will hear something more about it. I told them that if what she said was true that there is bias against previous students because they then have to meet an additional criteria (a high one at that) to get into the program that students without previous college don't have to meet.
