I am planning to apply for Texas Wesleyan this year but don't know if I should wait to improve my stats. I lacked focus during first few years of college.
Overall GPA: 3.4
BSN GPA: 3.38
Science GPA: a little bit above 3.0 (chem 1, physics 1, pathophysiology, biology, a&p and precalc: B. Business calculus and statistics: A)
First pharm class, I got a c+. Retook that for b.
I've withdrawn from a lot of classes prior to nursing school: precalculus (retook and got B), chem II, micro econ honors, a lot of psychology classes, a ballet class. I also changed majors several time and took random classes that seemed interesting at the time but, in hind sight, makes me appear unfocused as a student (ex: epidemics in world history, yoga, fitness and health, jiu jitsu, greek mythology, a lot of psychology classes, extra sociology classes...).
I also have several C's: pediatric nursing (my C was an 82), macro econ honors, men and masculinities (upper sociology course) and first pharmacology class.
GRE: 303 (math 148, verbal 155) with 4.5 writing
Experience: Cardiothoracic ICU (will have 1 year before Feb.1, 2015, which is what they require)
Others: I have no school debt or obligation (scholarship covered 85-91% of tuition and fees each semester and I also had two nurse tech jobs to pay off the rest. No kids and not married). Can move anywhere.
I have my bls, acls and pals. I am studying for ccrn right now. Should have it in January. My question. Should I wait to apply and focus on improving my messy transcript for apply now? I meet all of the minimum requirement but, looking at my transcript, I do not appear to be very competitive due to all the w/d classes and all the random classes I took. I am a lot more focused and less random now, partly due to nursing school and being a nurse. Should I wait?
