I feel nervous as time coming closer, so I need to do a reality check.
Any advice and suggestions will be greatly appreciated!!!
My overall GPA 3.3 (I know it is pretty Iow--I recalculated after I post this**)
- Undergraduate GPA 3.0 (Electronics engineering major)
- My post-undergraduate GPA 3.7 ( AA degree in nursing)
- Pre-reqs all As (A&P 1&2 x twice (I had to take again b/c I took it more than 7 yrs ago), Micro, statistics, biochem, medical terminology, psy, sociology)
HCE: RN for 6 years, about 9,000 + hrs (last 3 yrs in ICU at 300+ beds hospital, certified critical care nurse, have ACLS &BLS, Good amount of experience with code blue, hypothermia, STEMI/ NSTEMI, CRRT and others)
I am getting LORs from 1 NP, 2 PA, 1 MD from my work.
I am currently working on my Personal Statement, but honestly I am not a good writer. English is my second language.
I am taking GRE next month. I am okay with a standardized test. (I passed NCLEX and CCRN on first attempt.) But I am not good at verbal section. ETS practice test only showed 145~149 in verbal. which is less than 40%.
I know my GPA is low side. I am only applying locally in MD (CCBC/towson & AACC/UMB) due to my family.
Any comments appreciated!!! Thank you so much!! :)
P.S. Please don't advice me to go to NP school. Thanks!!!
