Hi dhammy, good luck! I'm sorry to hear about vet school, but nursing is such a good choice I just started my ABSN program three weeks ago. It's a lot of work, but I know it'll be worth it in the end. LC looks mainly at your grades. Not so much experience, but experience is a plus. I think you have to write a personal statement for them, but I can't remember. My cumulative GPA was a 3.34 when I applied and I had no problem getting in. From what I've been told, they prefer a prereq GPA over a 3.0. The biggest tip that I have is to apply as early as you can! Good luck!
