University of San Francisco BSN 2013 - page 2

Hey everyone! I turned in my nursing application for the university of SF in January. I wanted to see if there was anyone on here that's on the same boat as I am. Does anyone know when we... Read More

    I just spoke with ------------- at the USF Nursing department this morning regarding the same thing. She just told me they're notifying people within the next few weeks. I'm guessing first week of April or soon after. The anticipation is seriously killing me. I sent in three letters of recommendations and apparently they received all three from my professors. I'm not sure if that'll do anything but I can only cross my fingers.

    I haven't received anything from SF State or CSU East Bay. Probably didn't get in. I'm really excited for USF though. Hope the nursing gods notice me. Good luck to everyone. I'll be posting if anything worth posting happens.

    Thank you Emmers2013! And good luck mperal10 on your CSU schools

    I spoke with one of the advisors and they said no emails would be sent out to nursing applicants, and they're only mailing letters. I really hope I don't have to wait until April...I wish there was some way to find out! This waiting game is killing me

    Hey guys!

    Just wanted to give you a heads up that letters are out and probably on their way to your mailboxes!

    I got in!!!! I don't know if I will be attending USF for sure, since I'm still waiting for Samuel Merritt, but I will be doing the intent to enroll!

    Anyway, I wish you all good luck and if you will be attending USF, I guess we'll be seeing each other soon!

    Cheers!

    Congratulations guys!!! I haven't gotten anything yet. Are you all in the Bay area? Hopefully I'll get something soon!

    Congratulations to those who were admitted!! do you guys live near SF by any chance? I live way down in SoCal so I guess my letter won't be coming as quickly...I'm really hoping it will be tomorrow or next week sometime! When did you submit your apps?

    Ps. If you don't mind me asking, what was your GPA like? So I know whether I even have a chance of being admitted haha

    Did you all receive a big packet in the mail or a small one?

    Thanks everyone!



    I received a big envelope that said "here's what you've been waiting for" in the front.

    I live in the Silicon Valley area, received it on the 14th but the letter was dated march 11.

    For those that asked what my GPA was, in the pre-reqs it is a 3.4, and a cumulative GPA of about a 3.0--- so no, i think my GPA was definitely not my strongest part of the app.
    I believe I worked really hard on my essay, which included my volunteer work at Stanford and LPCH and also included other volunteer work as well.

    Hope this helps and good luck to all those who are still waiting!

    Thank you, yes it's definitely helpful. How many letter of rec did you send in? And again congratulations!

    Congrats to everyone who got admitted! I'm in SoCal so I'm assuming (hoping with fingers crossed, really) that it's on the way. Didn't have anything today...we'll see tomorrow or Monday. I hate snail mail!

    Mperal10--I wasn't aware that we could/should send in more than one letter. I remember reading something somewhere about just sending in one...hope I didn't read that wrong. I had three total professors who were willing to write letters but I just asked one.

    Hey KristinaT, during application time I went on campus to talk (I can't mention names on forum since allnurses says im breaking terms of service), and he said they'll read up to two. I wasn't sure which professors actually had time to send them so I asked three just in case. Apparently they all sent it in - but I think they'll only read two of mine. I'm sure one is all they need though.
    Hope you get your acceptance packet soon.
