NIU is a minimum of a 2.0 but the admission selection is based on academic performance so a 2.0 probably won't cut it.

SIUE is a minimum of a 2.5 cumulative GPA and a 2.7 GPA on all nursing pre-reqs. (Also Cardondale is offering a nursing program starting this fall semester).

UIC is a minimum of a 2.75 GPA in all college level course work and a 2.5 in the five science pre-reqs (A&P I and II, microbiology, general chemistry, and organic chemistry)

Oh, and SIU (both campuses) recommends at least a 3.2 GPA to be competitive...

I don't know if it's true, but I was told that ISU's acceptance GPA averages above 3.5 with 400+ applicants. It's very competitive to get into, but I've heard it's a great school. And Bloomington/Normal is a great town to live in. :)
