Hello Everyone, I am about to send in my application to CSU Sacramento for Fall 13 and was wondering if there are any other people in the same predicament. Would love love to hear your experiences as well.... Read More

    I'm with you Nurseinthemaking20..at one point it just didn't seem attainable at all, so I'm quite happy that we are were we are right now. How are you liking physiology? I loved loved my class...my professor was just amazing, and it was by far one of my best classes in my college career...enjoy..I think I might just send off my application tomorrow..I trust I have everything in place.

    I was looking through threads from previous years and a few people were talking about upper level classes. As a transfer student, what upper level classes would I have to take once accepted? Any ideas?

    Exactly. In my first and second years, I remember constantly thinking wow it's so competitive what if I don't get in. And also thinking, am I good enough or smart enough to do it. Well here I am in the last stretch and I'll find out in April or may if I really did do it. Congrats on getting that app complete! Now all you have to do is wait.

    As far as physiology, I am a bit burnt out. The semester just started, but I spent the last 3 weeks of my break studying for the teas, so I really was not ready for the semester to start. But I will get through it.

    I know that sac state requires all students to take 3 upper division courses in order to graduate. I have heard that some of the courses in the nursing curriculum will qualify, but I can't be positive. And if that is true, I'm not sure how many. Actually since I know how to maneuver the sac state website I'd be happy to do some research on that if you'd like. Are you transferring from a community college?

    Hi everyone... Sac state is my #1 choice as well... Currently I have 72 points from gpa and teas. I can get 75 if I find an evaluator for my language for the extra points. So so nervous about it all. I'm from the bay area !

    I am sorry physiology is not going so well for you Nurseinthemaking20. At least the TEAS is behind you now!

    Hi rafaeia! I think everyone is nervous.
    Good luck with your language points!
    I am from the Bay Area too. East Bay.

    You have no idea how happy I am to be done with the teas. I hated that stupid science section!

    Rafaeia- try your hardest to get those language points! I would hate for you to not get in when you deserve those points!

    Hi Rafaeia...I hear you..it's quite a nerve wrecking experience, but we will all pull through. I have been holding on to my Supplemental Application package for a few days now. Anyway, I hope you get the language points because every little point counts...

    Wanisai- it is no problem at all. It seems a lot of applicants will be transfer students, and since I'm a sac state student I don't mind helping out with questions.

    Well I did some research. I already knew that as a graduation requirement we must all complete 3 upper division GE. If you are coming from a university than you might have already fulfilled this requirement. If you are coming from a community college then you havnt. We also have what is called the writing intensive requirement, we have a foreign language requirement. And a race and ethnicity requirement. The writing intensive requirement is a requirement requiring you to take a class that is, well it's self explanatory, writing intensive. Then there's the foreign language requirement in which you have to have taken at least two semesters of a college foreign language. I believe you can surpass this by taking a test or if you took I think 4 years in high school. If you took at least two years in high school you can skip the 1st semester of the language and go straight into the 2nd semester. Then the race and ethnicity requirement is a class that involves learning about some culture, ethnicity, or race etc. Also, these things can overlap. You don't necessarily need to take one class for all these requirements. So for instance you need three upper division GE right? Well one of those GE can be writing intensive and one can be race and ethnicity. Now, I looked up the nursing program curriculum and there is one class that counts as an upper division GE and it also counts for writing intensive. So that means that you must worry about two extra classes to take aside from your nursing classes. They have to be upper division GE and one has to satisfy the race ethnicity requirement. Also, I should also tell you that writing intensive courses either require a prerequisite to get into it or a passing score on the WPJ. The WPJ is an exam that tests your writing ability to ensure that you can handle the writing intensive course. Also, don't forget about the foreign language requirement. Of course, you can disregard all of this info if you have already fulfilled all of these requirements.

    To answer your question, I am also in pharmacology this semester.
