    My cumulative GPA is a 4.0, prereq GPA is a 4.0, and science GPA is a 4.0. I have an AAS in Laboratory Sciences with a concentration in physiological and bio chemistry. For those of you who are freaking out about the GPA; I got rejected the first time around because of a lack of volunteer experience. I spoke to an admissions specialist who informed me that they review applicants based on a point system: 10 points for the essay, 10 for the references, 10 or 20 for the GPAs and 10 for volunteer experience. She also went over my app on the phone to steer me toward my weaker areas (volunteer experience). So dont assume the worst if your GPA isnt perfect; mine was and I still didnt make it. It seems that volunteer experience is a fairly important component. Good luck!!

    Shakes- thanks for the info!

    Sounds like ill probably get the thin envelope since I have no volunteer experience.
    Where did you volunteer at?
    I have a 3.79 cumulative and 4.0 science/3.9 pre rec with a BS in biology and minor in psychology. Hopefully we receive those letters today .. I'm local so I'm assuming today will be doomsday haha.
    Good luck to everyone else!
