Hi guys, I am currently an undegrad senior at UVA, soon to get my BSN. I transfered from a community college, because my grades in high school were not great. (Dont worry if yours aren’t good either, community college was an eye opening experience that I am so thankful for) I am curious what my chances for getting my MSN (or possibly enter Medical school? I have all required classes) at these schools are. Thanks for any info.
My GPA is a 3.79. I am currently taking many rigorous courses, and many of my B’s are in classes such as spanish lit, statistics, and organic chemistry. I’ve gotten consistent A’s in most sciences, lab classes, and math oriented class.
I am part of many clubs, some for my own personal enjoyment (basketball league, pokemon club) but I am also a certified EMT, have observed multiple surgeries, and I have published a semi-succesful research paper where I recieved national recognition
I got a 520 on my MCAT!!! (so shocked about this, I did not think this would happen). I did not plan to become a doctor, but now that it is a posibility i am considering it. I also got a 318 GRE score.
I am a lab assistant for a proffessor at Johns Hopkins. He definetely wrote a great a recomendation, and he graduated from stanford.
I’d say the only weakness on my applications is my GPA? I’d definetly consider UVA to be a tough school to get almost a 3.8, but im not really sure how I fair among my peers
I am also a male. I don’t want to make any assumptions that it helps with nursing admissions, but from what I have heard it does help my chances. (Again, not saying that it is 100% true)
My family does not have much so paying will be a struggle. I want a balance of prestige and financial aid, just because both could save me a lot of money in the long run.
Thank you, I greatly thank you for any response.
