    My gpa was 3.43... I did not have to take any kind of test... They changed that this semester along with the fact u will not need letter of recommendations...I am a transfer student ( i have more that 30 credit hrs) and will start my clinicals in spring 2014. Therefore I will have my bachelors in 3 and a half years... Anything u want to know just ask!!!

    Thanks for sharing aaanders2020. I assume the requirements have changed: if you are applying as a second degree major with a Bachelors already, you do not have to submit ACT scores, however your last 60 hours of college course work must be a 3.0 GPA, submit two references, and a personal statement on the topics within the application. Plus the website states that they give consideration to those who have completed pre-reqs A & P I and II with labs.

    I am a second degree major with a BS, I have taken and passed both A & P I and II with Labs. My GPA might be higher but I know its a 3.0 but since they ony using the last 60 hours I am not really sure. Do you think I have a chance at getting accepted?

    I got accepted to Baptist for this fall. My gpa is a 3.75. I'm transferring from Southwest. The deadline for Baptist is May 1.

    Acceptance is solely based on your gpa... Finally a college has realized that to tell if a person will make a good student is to look and see if they performed well in the past... No extra gimmicks!!!

    Yeah. I think if you're a transfer student you don't even have to send in your high school transcript or act score. I sent mine in just in case but I don't think it is required. You don't even have to send in recommendation letters to Baptist anymore.
