Right now, I am earning my prereqs at a community college in Idaho. I am a sophomore in college.I am very interested in applying to a prestigious nursing program, such as an ivy league. I am particularly interested in the University of Pennsylvania. How hard is it to get into their program as an out of state transfer?
Last year, as a freshman, I got okay grades. I ended with a 3.2 gpa. I have learned my lesson, though, and I am shooting for all A's this year. I know that this is a high goal and last year's grades were low, but if I do exceptionally well academically, will I have a chance of acceptance at Penn?
Besides school, I am a CNA, I am the president of a volunteer club, I am involved with student activities, sports, and I volunteer. I am planning on starting a health based club. Will these extracurriculars help me to get in? How can I improve my chances of getting great nursing schools? Do you have any other advice?
