I’ll go ahead and share mine. Here’s my own thoughts on my application. As far as GPA goes, I’m probably average to slightly below average. I feel like experience, LORs, and my PS are what got me to the interview, and then I felt like I had a strong interview. My weak points were definitely shadowing and volunteering.
GPA Overall: 3.58
GPA Science: 3.55
GRE: V-159, Q-157, AW-4
Degrees: BSc - Biology & BS Nursing, both from larger state schools
PCE - Military OR Nurse, 4600hrs at time of application.
Healthcare Experience - RN team lead for neurosurgery and trauma surgery (basically my administrative duties that aren’t direct pt care). ~600hr
Non-healthcare, I just put my old college jobs as a personal trainer and working at the wellness center.
Volunteer - Stop the Bleed Instructor. 24hr educating public on trauma response and hemorrhage control.
Shadowing - None (I work with PAs, NPs, MDs, etc. so I already knew the roles and such)
LORs - 2 from a couple of my neurosurgeons, and one from my nursing supervisor. I chose individuals who I have worked with a lot and knew me well, but would also write about my different strengths. That way I wouldn’t have 3 identical letters.
Feel free to ask any questions if you have them.
