I applied to UF's accelerated BSN program for Summer 2009. The application deadline passed 2 weeks ago, and I am anxiously awaiting a reply. I hate waiting! If anyone has been through the program, I was wondering if you remembered when you found out if you got in or not. Is anyone out there also waiting to find out if you got into the program?

Yes! Im waiting too. I emailed Kenneth Foote, maybe I'll get a response. Has anyone attended this program? Anyone know anything about scholarships thru school or hospitals, or work in Shands or Vet during the program?
Also, don't they consider the last 60 credits of your BA for the GPA? I hope so, it's a big difference for me. I think it might be close to a 3.8 as opposed to a 3.6. My GRE was 620 verbal, 590 math, 5.5 analytical writing. My prerequisites are so far a 4.0, but I am currently taking chemistry which isnt a prerequ at UF, but I might get a B at this rate. I have a little volunteer shadowing experience (which I didn't do when I applied, I told them I planned to do it), but I did do medical research as a volunteer RA in a psych dept. I feel I have a good chance, but I've seen other posts with much better GREs. When I spoke to Kenneth Foote, he said that the average GPA is 3.5, GRE just has to be over 1000, I forget the prerequisite average. I wish all of us LUCK... Im sweating it out too. I got a letter from FAU already, but I don't want to go there. My second choice is UNF, got invited to the interview on March 13. I hope we get these letters first, so I don't have to be nervous for that interview. My first choice is UF but Im still going to go to the interview at UNF just to check it out since I went to all that trouble to apply!! : )
