if you meet the course load, you should get an interview at Western!

Hello,

I've been reading a lot of this forum, trying to outline the list of the med schools I have chances with.

I'm not sure how to self-assess my GPA. I've got BSc in Nursing, going to school full time for 4 years (Sept to August). However, before starting the nursing program, and before I even knew I would be accepted, I took 6 courses (3 credits each) which were not technically pre-reqs, they would have been a part of the program otherwise (2 ENG, 2 BIO, 2 electives).

So, that was winter and summer semesters before starting the bachelor of nursing. Each semester 9 credits, so I guess it's full-time, right?

And then I had 4 full years, each year still full time, despite the 'lightened' course-load provided by the above-mentioned.

A lot of courses were 'mastery' courses, pass/fail kinda thing. I never had a fail and I never had to re-take anything.

Basically, after graduation my transcript only has 65.5 GPA credits, out of 138.

I would appreciate your advise on now to approach the calculation. My cumulative GPA is not that great, 3.47, but, for example, if I take the last 2 years, it is 3.85, which, with my strong ECs (4 years working as a nurse, 2 years in hospital leadership + a lot more), would allow me to hope to be accepted to one of the schools.
