my science GPA is 3.38, but I have one more semester to go, which I hope can boost my GPA. my overall GPA is 3.8. I have 1,300 PCE hours in the ICU - but I am still working and hoping to reach about 2,500 hours by the time interviews would occur. I am very nervous that my science GPA will set me back and that I will not get in

My science GPA is about a 3.38 and I have 2 acceptances and 5 waitlists so far this year. Everyone is different and noone can tell you whether you will get in but I did with a 3.38 science GPA and a 3.5 overall GPA.

GPA is not the be all end all. If you can make up for your deficit in the other parts of your application then there is no overt need to feel worried about your chances. You will most likely be asked about your sGPA at interviews so be sure to have a good explanation for it.

I had a 3.36 sGPA, 3.55 cGPA, and 7 acceptances. Make sure the rest of your application is strong and the sGPA shouldn't hold you back.

Thank you for sharing, that is amazing! 7 acceptances that is so impressive! Do you mind if I ask which schools gave you acceptances? Again, congrats and good luck!
