    ASU has very objective measures for admittance based on test scores, class rank, or GPA in core classes as defined by the Arizona Board of Regents (ABOR). Note that you must meet ONE of these requirements, not all of them. They also differ by whether you are an Arizona resident or not; non-residents have slightly higher test score requirements if one of the other measures is not met. Recommendations/work experience are not considered unless you are asking for an individual student review. Here is the link to the admissions requirements page:

    https://students.asu.edu/freshman/requirements

    Some degrees programs have higher requirements but it doesn't look like nursing is one of those:

    You should also be aware that the nursing programs are at the Downtown Campus so it will be a different experience than being on the main Tempe Campus. Depending on what you are looking for this may be good, bad or irrelevant, but it will definitely be different than what most people think of when Arizona State is mentioned. Spend some time on the ASU website.

    What are the chances being admitted to W.P. Carey School of Business for Accounting via the "Portfolio Admission"? I am in state, and just finishing my ABUS-GR with a GPA of 3.7 from a local CC that has a pathway agreement with ASU. I have not taken the ACT - and I don't want to if I don't have to. I am a non-traditional student with over 25 years in the accounting field. What do you think?

    Dvl,

    You need to spend more time on schoolwork and less at the convenience store. Your grades and test scores suggest that you need to learn more before you apply to school. Just taking an SAT prep class won't help if the problem is a lack of knowledge.

    Nursing programs are very competitive and require lots of skills and knowledge. You need to start now.

    I recommend going to a community college your first year for general requirements, then transfer to ASU with a solid grade. If you aren't going business, med, or any of the STEM fields (and all which require freshmen major requirements), I would most definitely attend a cc first. Much cheaper, and no admission stress.
