    Yes I prefer straight BSN but at the rate of competitiveness and my lack thereof makes me thinks that I wont be able to get into a BSN program

    Hello: How ya doin? Stats well lets see I still have college algebra in progress but........
    Pre-req: 3.8+
    Overall GPA: 3.26
    Teas: 84%
    Letter of Rec x 2
    CNA in hospital ( counts? )
    Bilingual: May or may not count because I only did 2 years of ASL because that is all my high school offered. When I sent in my app today, I typed a letter explaining that 2 years of ASL in high school (they didnt offer a 3rd year until a few years after I graduated) made you proficient in the language. I basically asked them to at least make a consideration...knowing my luck, doubt it would work.
    Attended info session in fall 2011 which counted for winter 2012/2013 and fall 2012 application dates.

    I do not look competitive at all! but if I do not make it in, i will try one more time in winter and that is it for me!
    No one really knows how they calculate who gets in or not but it is competitive and they are big on pre req GPA, overall and TEAS. I think everything else is for those students making up for a bad TEAS or bad overall GPA.

    What are your stats if I may ask

    @DarkBluePhoenix Wow you have taken trig, stats, and now college algebra? I hate that I have to take Stats because some nursing schools require it, but I guess I shouldn't be complaining! Why can't all nursing schools require the same math course!? I'm actually receiving a waiver for my math courses because it isn't equivalent to CSUSB. Crazy right? I took both College Algebra and currently taking Stats and neither of them are equivalent to the math courses CSUSB wants you to take. So I had to go through this process of contacting the Dept. of Chair in Mathematics and have him recommend to waiver my math course as part of my application and to take the class I did at CSULB. He said that the Nursing Dept. accepted it since it is the required math course for the nursing program at CSULB, but I am sure if I did that for the 4 other schools I applied to they would not accept it.

    Depending on how they calculate the GPA my prereq is between a 3.7-3.8
    Teas: 87.3
    Overall gpa: not competitive. haha
    (+letter or recs, bilingual, and info meeting)

    As far as residency, I am from Northern California.

    @ST1004 @DarkBluePhoenix: You guys have some good stats! I'm sure you guys will have no problem getting in! Is CSUSB your first choice? The 6 month long wait is going to be dreadful.......

    Yours stats are good! None of us have residency in San Bernardino County eh? I realized that I meant to use my aunts address on the application to get more points but totally forgot...oh well

    What you mean your overall GPA not competitive!?!? It cant be as bad as my barely 3.26 LOL

    CSUSB is my top choice because it is the only one that hasn't
    a) disqualifed me (read CSULB fall 2012 thread)
    b) too competitive for me (read CSULA fall 2012 thread)


    I wish they released how we are choosen! and yes this is going to be a long haul!
    where else did you apply?

    HAHAHAH I have also taken pre-cal and Calculus 1 &2 (remember previous engineering major!)
    I hate stats too! total BS. like I did anthropology and most schools want sociology! WTH?
    Wait so you took math courses and CSUSB isn't like'n them? What is going on!?!? Man you are having a tough time transferring the simplest units! i thought my situation sucked but you have had to go above and beyond just to freaking apply to program
    Why cant all nursing schools just require the same crap! Geez then maybe it wouldn't take a pre nursing major like 3+ years to satisfy them all!

    I took College Algebra and now am taking Stats and CSUSB's required math courses aren't equivalent to either of them. So I had to get it waived. At least CSU colleges aren't like UCLA and UCI where out of high school you already have to be as competitive as you can in order to get into the program. One thing I like about the CSU nursing program system is you get a fresh start of high school. I was thinking, "why don't colleges just accept as many pre nursing students as they can admit to the program?" but then that would be based purely on high school stats and a lot of people change when they go to college. To me the TEAS was waaaay easier than SATS (which I did not do well on!) Well in terms of information it was easier.

    How does the application process work at SB? I looked at the site and states fall and winter admission. Is it possible to still apply for winter 2013(program app) if I didn't apply for fall 2012 (college app)?

    I think they still have winter admission. Check CSUmentor
