Question by lilyankee1029: Which college is best for me with an average 3.5 high school GPA?
I want to be an ultrasound technician. Which college in Virginia would be the best for me?
Answer by sunflower
There are 2 accredited programs for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ultrasound) in VA:
Southside Regional Medical Center – Petersburg, VA
Tidewater Community College – Virginia Beach, VA
It’s very important that you attend an accredited program so you can take your board exams immediately upon graduating, to be a Registered Sonographer. http://www.caahep.org/Find-An-Accredited-Program/

As a side note, these programs are typically very competitive, and I’ll bet even more so for you since there are only 2 programs in your state. So once you start college, try your best to keep your GPA up so you can get into the program (most are competitive-based, so your grades determine your placement.)
Good luck 🙂
