    I just read somewhere that the point cutoff for Spring 2010 was only 35 points! That was the last time they only admitted Sac State students. Does anybody know if this is true?

    I went to the information session today and ****** is SUCH A SWEETHEART! The nicest lady in the world and she took the time to answer everybody's questions which was super duper helpful. There were only 132 (she may have said 134) applicants for Spring!!! That's AWESOME! I told her my points, which I found out after the infosession worked out to only 70 not 73 like I thought. Here are some things I didn't know that I now know from the session: 1) you don't qualify for the extra points for being economically disadvantaged unless you included your parent's information on your FAFSA 2) if you've repeated a prerequisite course more than 2 times, you lose 5 points for that particular prereq. AND, this doesn't just mean taking the same exact course number more than twice, it means anything in that same GE category. 3) You have to make sure you've submitted your Sac State transcript OR YOU WILL BE COUNTED AS INELIGIBLE. The cutoff will be much lower than normal obviously, but not as low as the last semester where they only admitted Sac State students. She confirmed that the cutoff for Spring 2011 was only 35, but the cutoff this time will not be that low she said. From the way it sounded, if you have 50 points or above I wouldn't worry. So, anywho, good luck everybody!

    Thanks for the info crebs. I appreciate you sharing your knowledge. Always nice to hear reassuring info. I have 70 points too! So hopefully we will be seeing each other in the Spring.

    Am I the only one that checks this board all the time? lol. All the other semesters people were posting on the boards non stop and talking about how they felt about the admissions process and all that. Nobody ever posts. Who here has 50 points or more and is excited to get an acceptance letter? We should all get to know each other prior to letters going out so we can make sure we're all prepared. A few students who posted for previous semesters took CPR together. Would anybody be interested in that?

    Hi everyone! I just stumbled across this website and started reading everyone's posts! I also applied to the Sac State's nursing program for Spring 2013, and the wait is KILLING ME! My points totaled at 67 so I am hoping I get in with the rest of you! =]

    I agree! I think we should all get to know each other I am really nervous right now, I have about 50 admission points so I am basically on the borderline. Once accepted I would definitely be interested in taking a CPR class. Keep us posted & good luck! Hope to see all of you soon

    I wouldn't worry dreambig! There were so few applicants! Remember there are always people that apply who are ineligible. And, I'm sure any and everybody applied, even people who have super duper low points in the 30s. So I think your chances are good! At the info session I got the impression that around 50 will be the cut off and that's a high estimate.

    So share a bit about yourselves everybody. I'm 32, and just decided to go back to school back in 2011. I had been thinking about nursing for years and never made a move. I have a degree in computer science but worked in real estate for a long time. I'm super interested in nursing and patient care in general after having worked in an infertility practice. I was doing so much stuff. I loved doing sperm preparation, blood draws, seeing stuff under the microscope, and just interacting with the AWESOME patients. (I'm not sure how much of that stuff I was actually allowed to do by law, but the doc had me doing it so I always assumed it was OK. ) It was really a blast. I plan to eventually open a private practice as a nurse practitioner, or doing some travel nursing as I'm not married and have no kids. I speak Spanish, French, German, and Mandarin Chinese. I love languages, and Arabic is probably next, but I really want to feel extremely confident in each of those languages before I add another. I'm so very excited to start nursing school and actually be licensed to do something! lol.

    Russian huh? Interesting, I never would have thought Russian would be a big language in the area. I'll definitely have to try learning.

    One of the largest Russian immigrant populations in the country... might actually be the largest. We get a lot of Russian-only speakers.
