Dude, you have competitive numbers. Do your research and apply to schools that match best with what you have to offer. You will get interviews. Do some homework on the interviews and show up to them prepared and with your "game-face" on and you will get in. Not to start a debate: Not all schools require one yr. of ICU @ application. Some don't even require ICU at all. However, you open the most doors with at least one year ICU at application and two years at the start of the program--that is the reality of the matter, BUT you can get in to several with a year done before you start CRNA school--from a clinical standpoint, I personally think two at the start of CRNA program is a good minimum to absorb what you are going to need to learn--that is coming from a former OR nurse who spent alot of time with CRNA's in surgery--I am not an ICU purist--I went to the ICU to get into anesthesia school; not to appease my inner Florence Nightengale, but the ICU experience is critical to your success. The real questions you need to ask yourself are if you are limited by geographical location, expense (there is quite a sliding scale--beware), do you want to get into a reputable program that is going to give you enough of the right expreiences to be GOOD AT ANESTHESIA when you are done (vs. just having the letters after your name), what are the costs of living where the programs are, etc. My advice: Start applying to schools that have FALL '08 app. deadlines to start in '09 sometime. Most schools start in Fall, a smaller subset starts in May/June, and an even smaller subset starts in Jan.--group your app.'s accordingly.
I have been one shot; one kill thusfar. One app, one interview, one acceptance. I start U. of Cinncinnati Fall '08. I had 16 months or so ICU, 3.87 GPA, meager 1034 GRE, and a crapload of military experience. School is Ranked #11 and director is current President of AANA, 4th oldest program in country blah blah...decent program--there are alot of good ones out there (some better thn others to b sure).
Based on your geographical needs etc. I would be happy to share my research with you--trust me I had back-up plans--just got lucky and got into my first choice from "Go".
