CSUSB Fall 2012 Hopefuls - Page 11Register Today!
- Mar 29, '12 by DarkBluePhoenixWell well....someone has been keeping themselves busy! hahaha
That is so nice of you to post that info up. When I went to the advising session way back last summer. They specifically said that it was 'too complicated' to tell us how they calculate whether we are in or not.
So they actually released that information recently, I take it? Hmmm interestingly the county of residence is worth more than the info session and the TWO letters of rec combined times a few! Talk about ridiculous.
Anyway, if you would calculate my points, it would be appreciated. I don't want to re-display them. They are on page 9 of this thread. I doubt I have much of any points, I don't even know if they will consider my high school foreign language. I wish they would, seeing is how I could not take 3 years if it wasn't offered for 3 years.
Anyway, I honestly think you have a really, really good chance. You points are excellent, you will get in. Be positive.

From what I calculated, you should have a total of 50.4 points out of 54. Very nice!
- Mar 29, '12 by Mikey BDarkBluePhoenix,
I currently have a VERY dull job that quite literally has me sitting at a computer with little to nothing to do for hours a day so I have ample time to play with Excel!
I calculated that you should have 45.4 if they take your bilingual, 44.4 if not. Honestly, you did VERY well. It's the county of residence that's killing you. They told us that the reason for this is because they want to keep people they train in the local area to serve the community, which is why there are so many points dedicated to that. And yes, they released this information recently when my girlfriend and I attended CSUSB's transfer day early March. It really wasn't all that hard to figure out though. You just needed the points value and from that you can calculate percentages of the available points based on your score. For example, an 88% on the TEAS would give you 88% of the 15 possible points.
And thank you for your kinds words. I will be following this post closely in the coming months, but I have to go for now. I'm taking my mom out to dinner so I have to leave. Have a great night everyone!
- Mar 29, '12 by DarkBluePhoenixThanks for calculating my points! is that a good enough score? ugh I am pretty doubtful.
I can understand what they are saying about serving the community and all that bs. but my thing is, if there wasn't like 100's of 1000s of new grads being pumped out a year, and the non existant jobs, then that excuse doesn't work. There are plenty of warm bodies out there, are they really that picky? Idk...
Anywho, we have a long time until we find out.
Lets keep each other updated!
Have fun taking your mum out for din din! ENjoy!
- Mar 30, '12 by Mikey BI honestly don't know if that would be enough. I would imagine that it would depend entirely on how many people apply and how many points they have.
As far as being so selective, they told us that they only get enough funding for 40-45 positions every application period. Because of this, they only take the best of group, since they will most likely have a higher chance of doing well in the program.
- Mar 30, '12 by Mikey BThis image shows where I got my numbers from. It's a photo I snapped during the transfer day presentation.
- Apr 2, '12 by DarkBluePhoenixInteresting....i guess i am screwed lol
i thought they took into account overall GPA.
oh well good for me then since my gPA sucks
guess i have to contact the nursing program about this deposit business... i am not paying it if i dont get in.
- Apr 3, '12 by DarkBluePhoenixOk so I talked to the nursing program people and they were useless! They basically said that they didn't know what to do for people who need to pay the deposit but may not get accepted to the program
ok so I call admissions. They were even more useless! They said that this doesn't happen because people who don't get into the program normally attend the school anyway. I was like, there HAS TO BE people like me, who apply to get into the program, and if I don't get into the program, then I should get my money back! They said that they don't know of a way around this, other than the applicant wasting $100 for a deposit for a school which they will not attend due to denial from the program.
I am in utter freaking shock here. This is completely ridiculous!
Anyone a transfer and having the same issue?!!?
- Apr 3, '12 by Mikey BI called the admissions office a couple weeks back and essentially got the same answer that you did. I just went ahead and paid the deposit. My outlook on the issue was this. I'd rather pay the fee and lose it because I don't get accepted into the program than not pay it and get accepted but not be able to attend because I didn't.
- Apr 3, '12 by hellowelcomeHi @Dark @Mikey,
I'm a bit confused. I never received any email about paying a deposit. The only email I've received is about my incomplete application. I turned in my initial transcripts to the Nursing department, but I thought transcripts to the school weren't due until July. Have you guys already been accepted into the school? Maybe that's why I haven't received an email about paying a deposit? Idk..
