    to be honest, people telling you their scores and gps would probably cause you more stress than anything. trust me...I was there last year. playing that game is not a good one. besides that there are a variety or scores they let in. there were people with really high gpas and mediocre scores that got in and then there were people with the bare minimum. it really just depends. the whole admission process is kind of a mystery to all nursing students because sometimes you just don't understand why certain people get in. if anything....do REALLY good in A&P 1 and 2 as well as the labs. your science gpa is really important. I do know that everyone who got in did have awesome science grades. and after getting through term 1 I can tell you that pathophysiology is wayyyyy harder than A&P. you really have to know your A&P to do well. I hope this all helped! tell your friends nott o freak out and not to try and compare grades. its really not good for anyone. :-)

    OMG I still haven't heard and the closer it gets the more worried I get. I heard that a lot of the people who got in last year new around the begining to mid of march!

    no one heard by mid-march last year....trust me. April 1st was the first day that anyone saw letters and those were ppl that had tallahassee adresses.. PPl outside of the city got them within a few days after that .

    I spoke with the nursing advisor a while back about when the letters would be sent out and she told me they hoped for the end of march but will most likely be in the first week of april. Apparently, the scheduling of the HESI screwed things up because we were allowed to take the exams in february which they normally don't do so decisions may be delayed because of it.

    Hopefully we find out soon, I'm so nervous!

    I haven't heard and I don't think there is a way to find out how many people have applied
