    I'm sorry sohopeful27, my daughter's "plan B" at my suggestion was to go into occupational therapy, it is still only a masters as opposed to a doctorate like physical therapy and they get paid more and don't have to work nights or weekends, or holidays. Hope everything works out for you.

    sohopeful27, that sucks! I haven't heard yet, but my overall gpa and prereq gpa are almost exactly the same as yours, so my hopes are pretty low at the moment.

    As for Geminancy, that's actually a pretty good idea! I'll look into it! Out of curiosity, what was your daughters gpa? If you don't mind telling of course! And congrats to your daughter!

    Thanks for the well wishes, I am a proud mama. My daughter's GPA was 3.88, I think she definitely had an advantage in that she was there the last two years even though they say that that doesn't make a difference. She lived in the nursing living learning community dorm (you apply for that as a freshman) and joined prenursing leaders, two things you can't do if you aren't already attending. Don't forget, there are 500 applicants that I'm sure were very qualified, but didn't get in

    I just called CON, and they said that FSU students get priority over transfer students. They wouldn't tell what ave GPA for acceptance!

    Suejax, your GPA is so high, it had to be because of the transfer status. so sorry

    FSU has been my first choice, and I couldn't admit the fact I didn't get in. But I need to go to Plan B. Good luck to your daugher!

    That's absolutely awful! I finally got my letter and like I thought, no good news. Man, I envy those FSU students! I'm seriously starting to consider a private school just for a better chance! Thanks for the encouragement and good luck, everyone!

    I have a 3.52 total and 3.8 on pre-reqs. That's two schools down for me! Well, at least now I'll have plenty of time to better myself and my gpa!
