Here's a little encouragement for you guys: I applied last year with a 3.517 GPA and an 86 HESI. I was alternate #14 & received a call today to accept a spot to start this coming March! Due to certain circumstances, I had to turn down my spot, so I'll be reapply with the same GPA & HESI. I'm not discouraged because I know I did my best & that it is possible! I say all this to say, don't stress about it. I know it's easier said than done, but it's the best advice I can give. I honestly didn't expect them to call, so I'd already submitted another app for next admission cycle, but I didn't give up or stress about it. This process is long (getting an acceptance/alternate letter, going to orientation, awaiting a start date & for those who will be alternates, simply waiting on that phone call) so worrying the entire time doesn't help. If you need to retake a course to get a better GPA, retake it. If you need a higher HESI score, retake it (I did & end up getting the same score) & reapply, but DON'T stress it. Just do the best you can & when the time is right & if it's meant to be, you will obtain a spot in this program!
