Hey everybody! I am planning on applying to TWU and TCU for the year 2020 and I am curious how competitive my stats are. I have 2.5 years experience in the CV/CICU at a Magnet teaching hospital. My overall GPA is 3.5. GRE 309 ( 306 V 303 Q 4.0). I have my BLS, PALS, ACLS, CCRN-CSC-CMC. What are my chances of getting in?

I plan on applying too! I know someone who just got in to last years TCU CRNA class with similar stats. His GPA and GRE was slightly higher, but he only had one year of CV/CICU experience with CCRN-CMC. He told me they put a great deal of weight on scores like GPA, GRE and even CCRN scores. The interview questions were nothing about clinical scenarios, but just about personal life and why he wanted to be a CRNA. Said that the atmosphere was awesome and friendly. I have a 3.4 GPA, BLS, PALS, PALS instructor, ACLS, CCRN -109/125 , TNCC, and plan on taking GRE and CMC before application deadline. My biggest area of concern is work experience because it is mostly rural. I have a PRN job in a larger CV/CICU and will hopefully start taking hearts soon to tack that onto resume. Good luck!
