    Cal State Channel Islands is the school for you. 80% ON TEAS gives you maximum points possible. And they give a lot of points for Spanish and EMT

    Hey everyone,

    I am applying for Fall 2013 to SFSU, SJSU, CSUEB, Seattle University, and Dominican University, but I'm not sure if i'll even stand a chance. Here are my stats:

    Cumulative GPA: 3.72
    Prerequisite GPA: 3.64-ish? might be higher...
    100+ hours of volunteering in an ER (with direct patient care)
    EMT-B certified and nationally registered.
    TEAS: 80% (advanced)...didn't have that much time to study...
    Foreign Language proficient (Spanish)
    Multicultural experience working with at-risk/disadvantaged youth.

    I determined that my impaction score cuttoff for SJSU's program is 10.59, and am hoping that I make the cut!!!

    Any thoughts, please? I'm going crazy over here!

    I am also applying to those 3 schools, with the same choice order. I know CSULB will count a course in progress as a C, but I believe they are the only school that does it. (I know Chico and Sac dont.) I like CSULB point system the best, because like you I dont qualify for most extra points (second language, economic disadvantage). I like how they just go of pure preformance in your pre-reqs and TEAS. I think I have a 9.2 for CSULB a 69 for Sac and 82 for Chico. My Chico one is a little low, but the other two seem borderline. Ill keep my fingers crossed.

    Hi everyone!
    I am applying to CSULB (my 1st choice), CSUS, and CSUChico.

    Prereqs/coreqs GPA (for Sac State): 3.94 (if they count my final grades of hopefully an A in my 1 science course and 1 nonscience course in progress)

    Major science prereqs: 4.0 (I have the one class in progress technicaly, does that get counted as a C?) If so, that puts it as a 3.6. That would be the case for us all then, right?

    Overall GPA: I can't exactly calculate it because I have over 90 units from 2 different schools, Somewhere between 3.7 and 3.85 I think.

    TEAS: 90%
    Volunteer hours: will hopefully have 100 hours by March, have only 20 ATM
    Nothing in terms of foreign language proficiency, financial difficulty, or multicultural experience.

    Hey, folks,

    Do you know whether we need to respond when we are told that we are accepted into the university?

    I got my acceptance to CSU EB -- the college, not (yet!) the nursing program. I don't see information on whether I need to respond. I'm not sure I'll go there until I get my Nursing acceptances, so I'm not sure I should submit an "intent to register." Do I just wait until I get in (hopefully) to Nursing and then let the university know?

    Thanks for any help.

    Hi scwolf,

    According to CSU EB, the intent to register for transfer students should be done no later than June 1st. So you can definitely wait until you get an answer from the Nursing Department. Hope that helps.

    I just found out that they're not making any decisions until late April/early May. Another month of waiting

    Hey guys,

    I just received an email from --------------, Chair of the Health Sciences Dept., informing me that I was accepted to the Fall 2013 Pre-nursing program. I bet your guys' emails/letters of the good news are in their way! Good luck!

    Thanks, kaleinani93. The intent to enroll I found (finally) said May 1, but maybe that is not for transfer students.

    Yes, we have more waiting. Sigh. I keep trying to distract myself.

    Hi Reggie624,

    I think that means that you are accepted into the University but not (yet) the Nursing program. Congratulations on getting into the CSU, though; that's terrific! Now we all have to wait to hear from the Nursing Dept.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong on that, please.

    Thanks scwolf. Actually, I received the acceptance letter from CSUEB a few months back. The latest one is actually from the Department of Nursing. Good luck!

    Wow, that IS exciting!! Congratulations! I thought we were a month away from notification.

    Yeaaah I thought we're still a month away from notifications from CSUEB... They said late April/early May. & correct, intent to register is June 1 for transfer students!

    Hey Reggie624 and Scwolf, I got the same email. I was wondering what the heck it meant, and I think it's just a "get you excited for the nursing program" letter, not an acceptance letter. So stupid, they should just send only the important information. Here's the letter in its entirety:

    Dear Mary:

    As Chair of the Department of Nursing & Health Sciences, I want to congratulate you on your admission to CSU, East Bay for Fall 2013! I want to let you know that at CSU, East Bay, we are a major university, but still offer a personalized educational experience, with professors, staff and advisors that are readily available and really get to know our students.

    I am so pleased you chose pre-nursing and are interested in our Nursing Program! We have a strong pre-nursing program that is excellent preparation for future nursing courses, including a highly personalized learning environment that balances rigorous, exciting academics and hands-on lab experiences in the sciences. Admission to the Nursing program is a separate and distinct application process. As a student admitted to the Nursing program, myriad resources would be available including faculty advisors who are highly approachable and provide compassionate guidance as you transition into a challenging career. Our instructors work hard to provide a diversity of clinical and other enriching learning experiences, which successfully prepare our nursing students for future employment.

    We also invite all admitted students and their families to attend our annual Welcome Day event on Saturday, April 13, 2013, held on the Hayward Campus. We hope that you will join us to discover the beauty of our campus and to explore the vast array of academic programs and student services that are available. Reserve your space at www.csueastbay.edu/welcome.

    Lastly, the Office of Admission asked me to remind you to refer to your New Student Checklist included in your admitted student packet for a list of required items new students must complete. One of those items is to indicate your Intent to Register in MyCSUEB (http://my.csueastbay.edu), no later than May 1st for first-time freshmen, and no later than June 1st for transfers, so we can hold your place in the entering class. So, please do this as soon as possible if you are planning on attending CSUEB! To check your admission status or documents received, please log into your MyCSUEB account.

    Good luck, and we look forward to having you in class soon.

    Congratulations again!


    Professor and Chair
    Department of Nursing & Health Sciences

    Oops, I guess the waiting continues. Sorry to get everyone's anxiety level up. We all received this email?

    I also received the same email above. I'm pretty sure we receive our acceptance to the School of Nursing by mail.
