    I am graduating next month from CRNA school. I was accepted to 2 schools with a 3.02.

    What I lacked in GPA was made up for in practical experience. I had been out 8 yrs before starting. Just talk to the school, feel them out. Most schools are willing to level with you before you go too far.

    Advice to original poster:
    "One who never tries will never know, and will always wonder."

    Ok, enough for me being profound.

    Question about GPA calculation. If you recieved a poor grade in a course and retook the course and recieved a better grade, will the school you're applying to factor in the improved grade, the poor grade, or both grades. My school is currently factoring both grades into my cumulative gpa.

    I got in with a 3.2 GPA. Some schools only reqiure 2.75. I got in to a school that required a min gpa 3.0. I researched every school. By the grace of God I got in!!!!! Schools look at more than your gpa. I was told the same thing by the director of one CRNA program. Dont let what someone else thinks/says about your goals be a determing factor. You will get in the name of Jesus.

    I have heard of 2.8s getting in. Ive also heard of GRE scores of 890 getting in. Seems that if you are weak in one area but strong in another you can see your dream come true.

    Exactly. It's a balancing act. Plus some schools value academics more than others. For those with one year of ICU experience or less, a 3.5+ is really essential.

    Is your last 60 hours GPA 3.2? Some schools, like the one I am most interested in ONLY consider last 60 hours and seperately consider math/science grades, then GRE. In other words really put no consideration of 1st 2 years of school EXCEPT math/science.
