Hey everyone just wanted to ask if you all think I have a chance in hell of getting into a crna program. I'd like to go to the one in Columbus at otterbein. My GPA is 3.3 or 3.4, been a nurse for 10 years, by the time I apply will have 4 years of icu xp, my GPA for all my science classes are even higher than 3.3 because I slacked off in two philosophy classes and got Cs, hence the lower GPA. I haven't taken the gre yet but test really well, I was in the 99th percentile nationally for my principles of chemistry final according to my professor as an example. I have recommendations from my icu docs, my charge nurse, and nurse manager. I'll also obviously have my ccrn by the time I apply. Do you guys think I could get in?

Also my bsn I got through western governors university. It's regionally and nationally accredited but it doesn't give out letter grades, what it says on the transcript is if you pass that means you received a minimum of a B. Afraid if that will hurt me too

I have similar stats. 10+ years RN experience, 3.4 GPA, CCRN, 6 years ICU, GRE score was decent. I have a few bad grades bringing down my GPA, but unfortunately they are in science courses. I could have done better, but when I took them I had no idea I would be a future SRNA applicant!! I applied and I am waiting to hear back. I know I may be denied because of my GPA competing against an applicant with a 4.0, but I am applying anyway with plans to retake a few classes if I am not accepted. I think you would be a fine applicant also, but your interview would be important and you would need to be prepared to possibly reapply and retake a couple of classes also to prove your potential as a top student. I hope you applied.
