3.96. Got a 93.4 on my gerontology final and that was considered a B. 94 was an A. I really beat myself up over that one B and was very upset with myself, but guess what, the girl I went to school with that had a 2.5 GPA works at the same place that I do, makes just as much money as I do, and is just as good at her job as I am. Grades don't make the nurse. Some people aren't as good at taking tests, but that doesn't mean that they aren't just as smart.

3.8 science when applying to nursing school, and currently (in nursing school) I have a 3.49. My other final grade has not been posted yet so that could change it.

I have one more semester of pre-requisites before entering an accelerated program. All my application have been sent, and just waiting to get accepted. To date my pre-requsite GPA is a 4.0, my undergraduate GPA was a 3.1. I never realized it before, but I am glad I did not fool around in undergrad too much because most of the programs I have applied to require a minimum undergrad GPA of a 3.0 or they won't even consider you.

Best of luck and do well on those pre-reqs. If your grades aren't where you want them make sure you take step to bolster your resume like shadow, become a CNA, or gain your BLS certification. :D

4.0 here.

The first time I went to college, I was a horrible student; I had no idea what I was getting into, and I was right on the edge the whole time.

Went to grad school quite a few years later, and found my confidence made all the difference. Scored ~3.8 GPA. :D

Now that I'm preparing for a second career, my new, matching attitude has me steady at 4.0. :yeah:

Another quarter into the books pulled me up to a 3.9. 3.77 for just nursing related classes for the application. 213 points towards my application. First alternate last year had 201.

Things are looking pretty good. C'mon JANUARY! Then I can get that application turned in and should know by May!

I have a descent GPA which I worked hard to maintain. Although I thought it was fun to state it at one time, I am way over it, I do not need to see an other's GPA to make myself feel better, nor do I need to post mine for others with less to feel bad. Rarely do I see one of these threads started that includes..."my GPA is 2.0 what's yours?" seems like the majority of these are started as bragging rights; like, "My GPA is better than your GPA, neener neener"...and if I see one more person say "Is a 3.8 GPA good enough?"...its like a skinny person say, "Does this make me look fat?":no:

I don't think it is a bad thread at all. I did very poorly in high school because I didn't apply myself. Now that I am a bit older and decided to go to college, my GPA is a big source of pride for me. Not because I want to hold it over someone else's head, but because it is a symbol of my hard work and dedication. I think this question is far more appropriate here on a semi-anonymous forum where people can just as soon move to a different topic, than in a classroom where people may feel obligated to answer despite possibly being embarrassed.
