    Hi everyone I just joined this website...has anyone gotten any confirmation email or anything about SMU receiving our applications? I haven't heard anything so far and was kind of worried.

    Howdy everyone! I also just joined.

    Yesterday (Monday Aug 9th) I recieved an email giving a time line of when we will hear what from SMU. It is as follows:

    Here is a time-line of the admission process for SRLC:

    Jul-Aug: Admission application review

    Aug-Sep: Faculty application review/ELMSN interviews

    Early Oct: Applicants notified regarding admission status. Admitted and waitlisted students are initially contacted by phone and email, so please make sure your contact information is up to date. Denials letters are sent by mail.

    Hope this helps. Good luck to all!

    Was that email solicited or not? Meaning did you email them for those answers or was it sent to the whole ABSN Spring 2011 group?

    I applied for Spring and didn't get any update emails.

    i did not solicit a response from smu, the email was sent out to me. i would recommend contacting liza osteo or you can go on the smu website and chat live with a counselor today and tomorrow (from 1-3 i think...but not 100% sure) and i'm sure they will put you at ease. i applied to sacramento so if you applied to san mateo, it might be a slightly different timeline and perhaps that is the reason you haven't heard back yet.

    I also got the same email.

    Ok, well I applied to San Mateo and that counselor is out til Aug 17th (I emailed her). Maybe that's what explains it.

    Are you guys also re-applying for Summer 2011 just in case you don't get in for Spring? Application is due Sept 1st.

    I don't even wanna add up how much I've spent for transcripts, testing, app fees, etc. since applying to nursing school. Ugh.

    Yea. I applied for SF for summer 2011. I applied for both Spring and Summer at the same time, specifically trying to save on paying the app fees by applying 2 separate times. Gotta love school fees. Sigh! On the bright side, we can write them off on our taxes so don't forget that. :-)

    I received the same email for the Sacramento class. Those stats are pretty high- *Sigh*, but I've been praying...

    That's really interesting they way the number of slots available differs from each cohort, also I wonder how many people actually completed the application process correctly this time, maybe we'll all get lucky and we'll be the only ones that get in! A girl can dream...

    Lol! I like your optimism! We can only hope!

    I am applying for Spring 2011 at San Mateo- just got the email from Eugenia Berdali- saying there are 48 spots in the class.

    They are anticipating result letters to be mailed November 15. Yikes!!! I thought this NursingCAS was supposed to save them time... they need 3.5 months to decide??? My other app has to be in by September 15 and they make a decision within a month! Shoot- I was hoping I'd get notification around the same time, so I could actually make a decision... now it's just whatever comes first. Lame.

    Hi AndyPants44, that's weird I didn't even get an e-mail. I emailed ---- and was told not to worry and that they have my application. I was just wondering, did that email say anything about how many applicants applied at San Mateo?

    Also to everyone else...I keep reading that there are hundreds of fresh grads with no jobs...does that scare anyone cuz it certainly is starting to scare me...imagine having a $50 000+ loan and no job!!!!
