    no the character one doesnt have to be from a professor. i remember going to the info session and asking and they said only the academic one is professor. i believe they dont even read them! i bet they just make sure you have two and skim them and then give you the whopping two points they are worth or something!

    ugh what a waste, im getting my character one from an employer.

    i tried to do it in december but my professor was overloaded with classes (was teaching like 5 classes and 3 labs) and so i just waited. he said its supposed to be done today and ready for me to pick up!

    Oh I see, hopefully you will get them today so you can send in your packet! I got my academic one from a professor but he didn't teach one of the pre-reqs for nursing or a science or whatever. Hope that doesn't matter, and for my character one I had my volunteer leader write it. I'm always so lazy to go to the info sessions Only went to the one at CSULB cause that's where I go. I know you get extra points for going to the CSUSB one right? Its like an hour and 15 min drive from where I am so I was like ehhhhhhhh, it's still winter break time to sleep in more!

    Ha ha ya I went to one but I'm down the 210. Like 45 mins away. Ya you get extra points for it but according to them its not worth much. I guess they rate the most points in this order:Pre req GPATeas (overall score)Overall GPACounty you live inLetters of rec Attend info sessionso I mean I heard the letters of rec are two points total so I bet the info session is one point But they didnt reveal how they selected their students.

    When I emailed one of the nursing staff members, he told me that overall GPA doesn't play a factor in the decision making as long as it meets the minimum requirement. I hope it doesn't because my overall GPA isn't very competitive

    They told me that it does. It's like ranked right after teas and pre req GPA. No sweat, my overall Is barely a 3.2

    Ok so i am wondering if they will take high school foreign language. Because at my high school, I took ASL and it was offered only 2 years which made you intermediate in the language. Well after I graduated they added on another year. I hope they take ASL for two years in high school. I mean, what was I going to take for a third year? Beginning Spanish? I hope they accept it. I'm going to ask though just case and BTW they do take previous healthcare experience according to this linkHttp://WWW.CSUSB.edu/majorsdegrees/undergraduate/RN/requirements.aspx

    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.
