    I just got my advising sheet. The only class missing is child psych which I finish in 2 weeks. Hoping I will be getting the acceptance next so I can join you guys in the Fall.

    Hi guys, I have a quick question. I received my advising sheet. However, the spot that list the last 60 units GPA is missing. They only show my core GPA. I called CSUSM and they said that they do not tell you your last 60 units GPA. Is that correct? It seem kinda weird to me because how am I suppose to calculate my points I have without my last 60 units GPA.

    Hi Cookiedough. I received my admissions offer today and my advising sheet last week. I don't think I have a last 60 units gpa either. It does seem strange but may be because classes are still in progress and it will change.

    This is so stressful! I'm gonna be finishing my last pre-reqs in the next two weeks but am worried that my official transcripts won't be ready in time for fall admissions. I've already submitted my teas scores and other transcripts, they are just waiting on my in-progress grades from this semester that's about to end. Anyone else in the same situation?

    Congrats everyone! I was accepted last month too for Fall 2012 Temecula. Maybe we can start a group so we can all stay in touch as the semester approaches. I'm actually from New Jersey so anyone looking for a roommate please feel free to reach out.

    s.colpo- I initially applied for Spring 2012 with pre reqs in progress. I had stayed in touch with admissions up to the month before the semester was to begin and they still had spots open. If you can get your transcripts there in time there's always a chance!

    Congrats to everyone that has been accepted so far... I can't wait to meet you all. To those who are still waiting, I wish you good luck! I also plan to commute, but from South Bay San Diego for at least the first semester, and then maybe get an apartment or rent a room once clinicals start.

    Alright, I'm trying not to be a wreck until I get my advising worksheet. I've been reading posts from past years and I am really nervous about getting in (much like everyone else). I took all of my pre-nursing core very early in my college years and got C's or better but my GPA isn't high enough (cum or pre nursing).

    I want to retake some of the pre-nursing core classes, but the advisors made it seem like that wouldn't help as much as retaking the TEAS. Even if I get the highest score on the TEAS, I will have less than 20 overall points. There's no way I can get in the program with that...right?

    Any thoughts on re-taking those classes (Anatomy/Physiology, etc)?

    Hi K, my classes are really old also and thankfully CSUSM is okay with that. I don't know what there exact cutoff is to get in as they only publish the averages. You could always ask though.

    I can't imagine there being any problem accepting any classes that you retake. They push focusing on the TEAS test first because it is the fastest way to bring up your overall points. If your gpa is still too low I think you'd have to retake classes.
    On the bright side, if you retook most or all of the core classes such that they were less than five years old, you could apply anywhere and have more options. Obviously start with the lowest grades if you do end up retaking classes.

    Thanks markE! I am going to retake some classes anyway...just to brush up. I am so excited about this career change and it never hurts to revisit

    So I went to hand-deliver my last transcript to extended learning today. When I got home I emailed one of the advisors to ask if the fall 2012 cohort was full. I was told that it's very close to being filled and that the applications they are now receiving will most likely be rolled over for spring 2013 admission. BOOOOOOO.
