    there we go! healthcare experience does count!

    i knew they didnt go "straight by points" so that i know they take "other considerations" in case someone with a 4.0 is competing with someone thats a 3.4 or something and that 3.4 has healthcare experience, they will be choosen over.

    from what i heard from my friend at work, when she applied to CSUSB, they conducted interviews for those alternates. she said it was her against 2 other people for 1 spot. weird eh? not like CSULBs nursing program

    anywho just found the link and would like to share it. i dont know if it specific to a job or volunteer but hopefully it will make up for my non-existent second language status.
    who knows? i am turning in my application friday! all of it will be done!

    I submitted my packet without a volunteer letter. Should I send it in separately or not? Cause they never stated it in the instructions.

    Honestly that is the only place I saw it and at the info session they said it doesn't count. Idk. I am sending in my work experience just in case. I dont have a 4.0 overall or even close and if its a deal breaker then ill send it in. I just copy my CNA cert, copy my badge and driver license. That should be plenty of proof. You think they need a letter from HR?For you, since CSUSB isn't your top choice and your teas and GPA are more than enough for immediate entry, I wouldn't worry. But for someone like me, I'm sending my in. It may just tip the balance in my favor if I became an alternate or something.

    That's true. How long is this nursing program at CSUSB in comparison to CSULA? Are both quarter systems?
  6. by   DarkBluePhoenix
    both quarter, both 3 years but since i am disqualified for CSULB and I am not competitive enough for CSULA I guess CSUSB is my last shot!

    cross my fingers!
  7. by   Spiffyness
    CSULB already contacted you and said you're disqualified?
  8. by   DarkBluePhoenix
    Not yet but I'm really pessimistic (can you tell) and I just know they will so I'm not holding my breath. Plus with addition of applicants, I'm not competitive enough

    Just turned in my supplemental stuff! Now all I need to do is update everyone with transcripts and its done!

    Hey DarkBluePhoenix,

    Do you know if we need to send initial transcripts to the Admissions office as well?

    What I see from the website it seems that the documents due to the Nursing department by March 1st are: teas results, initial transcripts, language proficiency, and letter of recommendations. Then final transcripts are due in July to the Nursing department AND Admissions? Is that correct? Thanks!

    For all the colleges I applied to, transcripts are due in June/July. But I don't get why they request them so late, after they had already made an admissions decision. I guess it's to double check what you entered on CSU Mentor is accurate. When I log into the mycoyote CSUSB student log in, under "Application status" it says that my application is imcomplete because I need to submit official transcripts by July 15th. Don't they make the decisions before that though?
  12. by   DarkBluePhoenix
    yes i actually got an "incomplete application" email from CSUSB. dont worry. i emailed the admissions and they said that final transcripts are due in July so we are ok. IDK how CSUSB is able to get away with not sending acceptances/denials so late. i mean luckily they are on quarter system so fall starts late sept but still! i know the deposite is due in like early May for the CSU's. Why would I put in a deposit if I dont know if I am in the program yet? ya Know? And where are all the CSUSB applicants? I swear this school is the one CSU that doesn't show up very often. I cant even find good enough statistics to see how competitive i am.

    Guess what? I just realized that i sent everything to CSUSB SoN BUTTTTT i forgot to print out my TEAS score transcript! UGH how could I forget that? I put in transcripts, 2 letters of rec, copy of my current job with CNA cert and forgot TEAS SCORE! so after winter is over I will just send it with those transcripts because the class that I am in is one of my "in progress" course (college algebra bleeech) so I know they will need it ASAP so no big hurry!

    ahh we have a loooong wait for CSUSB. Hopefully we (mostly likely you and not me) get accepted somewhere else and CSUSB is a back up. I know we find out for CSULA around mid April (ugh) and interviews for CSULB is mid march (eh oh well) so I mean, for all the CSU's I am applying to, this is the last one to let everyone know if they are in or not. I wish they wouldn't let it go on so long!

    I also applied to RCC as a back up (very respected ADN program, a lot of grads get choosen over LLU grads!) and they wont file decisions until late July TOO! ***** Because they are semester and fall starts late August so talk about a small window of time to get all the info in! Hopefully with the lack of responses, there arent a lot of people applying? that is hopefuly thinking, as hopeful i can get at this point
