UF Accelerated BSN, Summer 2018 - page 10

Hi all! It's pretty early on but I'd love to meet and chat with the potential applicants for this program. I also think it'd be great to have this forum in case we stumble upon application... Read More

    I read on another thread that someone checked one campus but was invited to another so I'm not sure it is a make or break factor but for me I personally have no preference. I had the college town experience already, while some might value that a little more so they might prefer Gainesville. I know my husband would prefer Gainesville because he loves "the swamp" and always wanted to go to UF. So, maybe I prefer one over the over just slightly more but I dont think it would matter too much. Just my opinion, I could be wrong.
    Thanks for sharing! I don't think I have a preference either but I'm personally not familiar with either area. I didn't even know there was a Jacksonville campus until I was looking into this program, haha

    Hey guys!

    How are you obtaining/ uploading your unofficial transcripts? I've never worked with my unofficials before so I'm a little confused on how I should go about this? Do you download them from "Florida Virtual Campus" and just upload it for all schools?

    I've only had my official transcripts sent to NursingCAS until now. I know that on the Academic History portion you literally have to go through and add every singe course taken, what semester, grade, etc. Apparently each school is different about unofficial versus official transcript but now I see what your talking about on uploading. I just tried and it seemed to work for me.

    Same here. My confusion is stemming from where I need to obtain them. I can access it via Florida virtual campus but it has all of my attended schools on one document (I can't access them separately it seems). So I'm not sure if I should upload the same file for each school... haha.

    Ah, gotcha! Man, I wish mine were all on one!

    Hopefully even with a preference, they will offer you the other campus if they can't accommodate you on the one you prefer. Though I'm not entirely sure I'd accept if I was offered a spot at Gainesville. I'm right outside Jax, so it'll save me a lot more money if I am able to go to UF in Jax or UNF.

    And I don't see anywhere to upload unofficial transcripts. Am I missing something I need to do here?

    Hey guys, does anyone know a way to submit letters of rec if I have them on interfolio? I know you can use the feature on interfolio to put in an email but it didn't work for another school I applied to because they asked extra questions.

    I contacted Kenneth but he was no help, just said interfolio is the only way to submit the letters. I had better luck with the other school who provided me a specific email to send them to and they submitted it to nursingcas for me.

    It pretty much looks like you have to use the NursingCAS system. I'm going to assume it also asks the additional questions.

    Hey guys, when entering your transcript course info it says at the bottom that we only enter our pre reqs and no other courses? Am I understanding that correctly?
    Also where are we supposed to submit our answers to the questions?

    It looks like it. They will get the rest of your grades with the official transcripts. And the answers are submitted at the end. There is a tab for the "essay" in the section where you also put your references.
