    I was wondering if anyone has input regarding what competitve "stats" would be for a Nursing option scholarship application? (asked this on another thread & thought a separate discussion might get more visibility)

    Here's some key stats on my son:

    SCHOLARSHIP
    ACT: 23 (SAT equivalent: 1120)
    GPA: 3.1 unweighted, 3.3 weighted (Jr year - 3.5, 1st sem Sr year - 3.9)
    (has taken college-prep coursework, including 6 Science credits, 4 English, 4 Math including AP Calculus)

    LEADERSHIP
    President, FCA
    Special Olympics coach & volunteer, 3 years
    Church youth group leader

    ATHLETICS
    Varsity wrestling, 2 years - 2x All-District, 1x State qualifier (top 16)
    Varsity football, 2 years - starter, sr year
    Black belt in kung fu
    PFT: 59 pushups, 64 situps, 7:40 mile

    We know the grades / test scores aren't outstanding, but that he's overcome a learning disorder to get this far is a miracle in itself, and he's performed outstandingly on his healthcare-related courses (95+ average). Hoping the leadership and athletic accomplishments can make up for that?


    Thanks in advance for any feedback, and best wishes to all!
