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 difference than the previous semesters!
Anyone else planning to apply to CSULB Fall 2012 BSN program?

Hey people! I am applying to CSULB too. I applied to the university beginning of Oct. I only received an email stating that they don't need transcripts or anything until Feb.... That is weird because nursing app is due Jan 1st through like mid Feb. Anyone else get same thing? So what is everyone's scores?
I am sure it you have above 9 points your pretty safe. Remember they post an average which takes in account really high and really low scores. So just aim higher than average.
Also keep in mind the budget issue. If you are a CSULB student (I am a transfer) you are pretty safe as well. I think it was fall 2011, they pulled some shady crap by rejecting a lot of high scores from transfer because thy only took 25 transfers max. Even 4.0 transfers didn't get in. I just hope that doesn't happen this semester.
BTW anyone notice that they changed their guidelines? Like they only take the "first GE taken." I think that is a BS rule. I took English critical thinking like years ago and got a C. So I took philosophy of logic and got an A and they change the rules in me! What the f? I know they will probably spot the mistake but I am applying anyway. The actual application only says to put down what you took, nothing about the first GE you took. Good luck to all those who applying.

If they didnt change their rules then I would be a shoe-in, I mean I worked hard, raising my grades and getting better grades. But apparently its just not good enough
A friend who is in their EL-MSN program, recommended me to apply anyway. With all the applications they get, I just may get in.
And you are right, the average is still below 9 points which is pretty low considering I thought that the scores would be on the rise.
Yes I know, 2 years for a BSN is like 2 years for an ADN. And I too, have been taking summer school the past few years plus working one or two jobs. So not having summers while doing nursing school? No big deal.
I hope I get in but I am so not counting on it though...
