    Give it some more time. I emailed her too and she eventually responded telling me that she got my mine.

    Do I have a chance of getting into the elm program with 9.17 points out of 10? You'd think it's a good score but i feel like its low considering the competition. What do you guy know about past applicants and what do you guys think?

    Where are all of the elm applicants? This forum is so quiet. Anywho, only a few more weeks until we find out!!

    @pinkstarz I've been checking this forum daily to see if anyone has heard anything, I'm guessing most people won't post until we do start to hear! I have to admit I'm a little nervous because ------------ never did get back to me about having received my application but I'm hoping since I sent in my official transcripts and TEAS scores and everything it'll be fine.

    As for your questions about 9.17 points I'm really not sure, I was looking on the website at the statistics they posted for ranges they accepted in the past and it really did seem to range from lowish scores to people with 4.0s...right now I would say it's anybody's guess! I just wish I knew how many people applied this year so I could know my chances!

    This may sound like a really stupid question... but does anyone know how long the entire program is? Is it 4 years or 3 years? A while ago they posted that they are splitting the prelicensure component and MSN component into 24 months and 24 months, and now the new brochure for the 2016 cohort says its 16 month and 18 month. I'm really confused. And does anyone know how we will be hearing back? Letter? Email? Phone? The lack of communication on the SON's part is a little frustrating...

    I was under the impression that the program is 4 years, maybe they're changing the format for the 2016 cohort but I don't think they are for the 2013, but I could be wrong I'm just guessing! And if I recall correctly the original brochure said we would be notified by mail by May 15 if we get in, but as for if they're inviting us for an interview who knows, my guess would be e-mail. That is much easier when it comes to scheduling. Honestly, my guess is everything will end up being via e-mail because that is just easier for the school. All the other schools I have heard back from let me know via e-mail so I wouldn't be suprised if LB does, as well. I definitely agree the lack of communication is definitely frustrating...everything just seems so up in the air

    hmm it's so strange that they would change the program to be 4 years for the 2013 cohort but back to 3 years for the 2016... I don't remember what the 2013 brochure said exactly, but the newly posted 2016 brochure did say that applicants will be hearing back by the 3rd week of April. And I was looking back to the 2011 thread, and it seemed like people began to hear back around that time. Hopefully we will hear back next week...

    What are your top choices for nursing school? Csulb is my last hope! Hope it's good news for me. I've been anxious since Monday. I hope we find out as early as possible!

    CSULB is my top choice, I was accepted to CSU Fullerton (although I am really hoping that doesn't end up being the only school I get into). I was rejected from UCLA and waitlisted at Western. Still waiting to here back from USF and Azusa, as well.

    After all this waiting (this whole process started in what like October or September even!) we'll finally know our fate hopefully in the next month. I'm at a point now where I just want to know, this constant anxiety for the past 2 months every time I check my e-mail has been a killer!

    By any chance, have any of you called to find out where they are in terms of going through applications? I'm wondering when we'll be notified. I cannot wait.. The anticipation is killing me lol. I check me email every 30 mins. Am I the only one going crazy?

    I think you still need to wait another week before checking your e-mail so much! From what I remember reading (correct me if I'm wrong) I'm pretty sure the old brochure said we'd be notified by the end of April whether or not we have interviews and their final decisions by May 15. From what I've seen from all the other schools I wouldn't hold my breath, I doubt we'll be hearing anything in the immediate future. My guess is end of next week or maybe the week after that.

    It's good to hear I am not alone with the anticipation and uncertainty! The old brochure said we would be contacted "about two weeks after the deadline" if they wanted to call us in for an interview. Since @siberiantiger says they didn't have interviews, I feel a little better about not being contacted yet.

    @jcsong, I've been wondering about the program length too. When I first looked into CSULB, it looked like they were going to do the 16 month RN and 18 month NP. The brochure changed to say it was going to be longer, but somewhere else still had it as 16/18. When I went in to take my TEAS, -------------- said they were thinking of making it longer, cause it was hard on some of the students. This makes me ANGRY, since I was applying here in a big part for the short length of the program! I feel hopeful that the 2016 info says that they are going to be on a 16/18 schedule though. I was really counting on learning about the program at the information session...I can't believe they never had one!

    Well, back to waiting I suppose...

    I actually called in and spoke with xxxx today. She said that the ELM program beginning in the fall is a 3 year program: 16 months for your RN and 18 months there after for your masters. I turned in all of my application, transcripts, etc in person and she told me that if anything was missing, she will contact me directly. So I am guessing if you have not heard anything yet regarding the status of your application, then that should be a good thing. I believe decisions will be made early-mid May! Good luck all!
