CSULB Fall 2013 BSN

  1. I just submitted my application yesterday and thought I'd start a thread for this process! I was involved in one last year when I applied, and it was really helpful to know what was going on, and where my stats where with others! I was told that they are expecting over 500 applicants, and we would hear back by the end of February! Good luck everyone!

    @redwards6- good stuff. did u calculate ur total score IE: fundamentals (math, english, comm, critical thinking), science, and teas?

    I have a 9.4. I applied last year with physio in progress and was told after not being accepted that I had earned a 9.00. I think I was .1 away from getting in. Anyhow, I got all of the coreq's done, so my first semester should be a bit lighter than it would have been. You??

    Well if it counts the trimester program was rough, but most of the instructors were awesome. In hindsight-totally worth it. Dont have much experience with basics though. I might add that one of the perks to being a trimester was that most of our clinicals were based in LBMMC, whereas the basic students had more commuting. LMK if i can answer any questions. I know i had a lot.

    Thanks! It's great to have a contact if I have a question. I'm most likely going for trimester-I have two kids so I'd like to get the program over as quickly as possible, however, I need to figure what to do with them in the summer...

    Wow you're sitting pretty with a 9.7! Congrats on that score, and keep me posted of you hear anything. I was told end of February, which is surprisingly early to me. We'll see...

    My approach is still applying to various programs...given the history of budget's impact on all the programs these last few years, it is possible other factors might eliminate me. Cap on transfer students, university cutbacks, changes in admission requirements...basically any other factor not in my control.
