CSULB Fall 2012 BSN - page 58

Hi! I think the CSULB School of nursing recently post new pool statistics including those who were chosen for Fall 2011. Knowing that the rating average is 8.91/10, that seems like a huge... Read More

    wow. Based on the pop. in this forum my guess is that most of the students who got interviews were either CC transfers or 2nd bachelor's students (i'm assuming they count as transfers as well), that means that most of the top 90 won't even get accepted! I remember current students at the interview telling us that we should be really proud of ourselves because the cutoff score was really high this semesters. Now i'm guessing it's gonna be in the 8.? range.

    But i guess you csulb students should be celebrating, cus this totally ups your chances.

    lol. I kind of gave up the moment i didn't get an interview along with everyone else. Maybe they should have waited until after the budget meetings to call in interviewees. From the looks of it they probably are going to have to do another interview session with ppl who didn't initially get called in. people below the cutoff. people who don't deserve it as much as we do.

    Of course we want know until a month from now, this is ridiculous. I'm sure they are well aware of how many students they can accept, we have already been ranked, so either we are in or out. I'm just over it!

    I wonder if it will affect all transfers equally, or just the msn ppl. Because, if they're going to eliminate little by little (which has to be the case because otherwise they could just send all transfers an email now telling us that we're not in) then it would make sense to eliminate them first, right? because this isn't their program

    ***! I guess I'm out. Good luck to everyone. If your a csulb student your in. Enjoy the progrm

    I agree with you Lucy.....
    This is unbelieveablily unfair. I am about to call them and tell them off.
    Since I am a transfer and a low scoring one I am definitely out.
    Why do interviews sooooooooooo early if they are going to have to interview extra people!?
    They are pulling the same **** that they did last fall.
    Do they enjoy ******* up our dreams?!
    I HATE THIS ******* STATE

    Well as I said, if you are a csulb student, you finally got your wish, as in you will get in over transfers.....Well enjoy the program....

    So are they not taking RN-BSN students either? Stupid freaking budget cuts.
  9. by   DarkBluePhoenix
    ok anyone know the number to call....i keep calling and no answer...am i using the right number?

    haven't they learned from their mistakes FROM LAST FALL 2011

    guys, compare that thread to this one...same timing same excuse.....if you transfer 4.0s need to be afraid!

    Yeah I'm really disappointed. I've worked so hard at maintaining a 4.0 throughout my entire college career and to think that I might not be able to attend the nursing program of my dreams because of budget cuts is devastating. I'd be willing to pay more if they just allow us to attend the program. What's everyone's scores (transfers only) so we can gauge where we're at!I'm at a 9.5/10 but overall TEAS was 81% and from reading previous semester's forums they have taken higher TEAS scores over overall points and GPA (which makes no sense?)
  11. by   DarkBluePhoenix
    Yes....Ana, someone on the last thread had a 4.0 but low (low 80s) TEAS score and still didn't get in

    It sucks, you could apply to other CSUs

    Idk but you all but I am pretty upset and ANGRY!

    What number did you use to call them Ana?
  12. by   L&D Bee
    Wow, this is devastating. After getting accepted to SFSU, which I thought was my top choice, I spent the past week feeling not very excited about it, and realized it was because I really wanted to attend CSULB.

    I had to reschedule a midterm and fly down to southern california all for an interview that apparently meant nothing? I'm really disappointed in this program.

    Can someone explain to me how and why the budget cuts mean they don't want to take people with the highest scores?

    I have 9.6/10 points.
  13. by   Victor 3397
    I think I am at 9.45/10, but my overall teas were around 80%. My nerves got the best of me on the reading section, I was worried that I was running out of time. I am sure I would do better the second time around, but would rather not have to retake it. My math score was 93.5.
