QUESTIONS for University of South Alabama!

  1. 0
    Ok... so I am applying for the Spring Semester of 09. I have a pre-req. GPA of 3.72 and an overall GPA of 3.5.
    I have ALL of my pre-reqs done, all shots, EVERYTHING is done.

    I am applying to the Baldwin County Campus and have LOTS of questions.

    How competetive is the program?
    How many people do they pick?
    How do they choose them?
    If I am not chosen for Baldwin County would I be elegible for the Mobile campus, or vise versa?

    I just recently found this website and after reading other peoples posts I have gotten EXTREMLY paranoid. Before I found this site, I was pretty proud of my GPA and really had no doubts about getting accepted. But OMG, after reading some other peoples posts I have gotten extemely nervious and paranoid.

    I guess I'm just trying to see what my chances of acceptance are.

    Any info on USA would be GREATLY appreciated!!!!!

    Hey there,

    I just graduated from USA CON. You have a good GPA, but I hope your best grades are in the sciences. If you don't make the Mobile campus, you will be considered for Baldwin if they are still doing things the same way. It is very competitive and a very difficult program. You must decide right away that they are going to have to drag you out if they want you to leave and then dig in and get through it! I don't know how many people they accept for both campuses now, but our starting class was 44. Most of us came in with 4.0 or nearly that and only 11 made it out on time. I know they were trying to keep the new classes around 40. Hope the info helps. Keep working hard and you'll make it. This was the hardest thing I have ever done, but the most rewarding so far. I got a job within a few days of graduating. USA nurses are well sought after. Take care.

    It's true that nursing schools do "weed out" the weak. Some will say that it because they want their NCLEX pass rates to be high, whatever. That may or may not be true but if I were a patient I would want the best of the best. Some people are excellent students but just can't "do" nursing and at the end of the day-there is a reason only 11 out of 44 passed-because they had what it took. JMO
