Footnotes:

* CSU San Marcos utilized impaction criteria to more greatly restrict admission to the program.

**Not everyone at that point cut-off was necessarily admitted. In the case of a tie, we give priority to those with prior U.S. military service, and then we use a lottery to determine who gets admitted.

*** The low GPA's are not reflective of a typical admitted student.  These are examples of what can be accomplished by earning points in optional Criteria areas.

**** We require Version 5, or later for the TEAS exam.
