I am an ED RN, have been for a few years now. I have always worked rural ED and been fortunate to be in this specialty even as a new grad. I have my ADN and recently finished my BSN and am looking at the ND PA school. I have strong references and work experience, but my GPA is not as good as I would hope. I had to work all through nursing school and faced some challenges in my personal life. I have a science GPA of 2.86, over all of 3.02 and 3.30 in my BSN program. Is that enough to make me a candidate for this program? Or should I retake sciences? Maybe get a masters in nursing first? I really want to continue on and become a rural ED provider and stay in rural Wyoming. I feel that the PA curriculum is better set up for this vs the NP. Thanks in advance.

      Does anyone know if thomas jefferson university do a Holistic Review or do they automatically reject those that do not have a 3.2 science GPA? I have already emailed the program admissions about this but I have not received a reply and I do not want pay the application fee if they will automatically reject me? Please I need answers asap.

      Hello everyone - I searched for this topic in the forums but couldn't find a match. 
      Can anyone list some programs that are known to give significant consideration to recent GPA performance and progression (such as last 30 units, last 60 units, most recent years, etc) vs only overall GPA?
      For instance, I meet the minimum GPA requirements and have a very solid post-bacc and science GPA, but because of very poor performance early in undergrad my overall average is not competitive. I know that some programs are pretty unforgiving when it comes to overall GPA due to high competition, while others give extra weight to seeing a clear progression of improvement over time. I have heard some mention in webinars that they give consideration to recent performance and like to see this, while others have been honest that due to the highly competitive applicant pool they don't look at that factor. 
      I'm sure that I'm not alone in this, so hopefully those with a similar upward progression can benefit from this discussion. 
      And/or if anyone knows of a prior thread regarding this topic, feel free to link it below. Thank you!

      Hoping someone can provide some insight. In your experience, do most schools look at pre req GPA's or sGPAs? With my cGPA and pre req GPA, I meet the minimum for most schools however, my overall sGPA falls below so I am trying to re-navigate and research more into schools that I meet the requirements for. Thank you in advance.

      I know that you can literally major in ANYTHING, but do some programs have an inherent preference for science majors. Would majoring in for instance Communications, be seen as taking the "easy way out". Obviously, getting an A in a upper division communications class is easier than getting an A in a upper division biology class (not a pre-req). This would lead to a high cGPA but will pa programs hold this against you in some way???
