UF's Generic BSN Program Fall 2012

  1. 0
    Hi Guys! I haven't seen any threads for this coming fall semester for UF, so i decided to start one.

    I'll start by saying my name is Naomi & I have applied for entry into the GENERIC Fall 2012 BSN program. I'm a Jacksonville, FL native and I am praying for this acceptance so I can get started with nursing school, finish, and start my career. I am super excited because I love Gainesville and UF. I think it is a terrific school, as I have a few friends who attend there. When I applied I had a 3.31 overall GPA, and I'm not quite sure how to calculate my science GPA, (if anyone can help me with that, I'll definitely appreciate it!) but I feel I wrote a great essay, so hopefully along with that and my prayers, I will get accepted. I am already claiming it!

    Well, I wish you guys who applied the best of luck and I hope to see you all this coming fall semester. =)

    I guess this can be a means of communication for those out there with any questions or comments regarding the application/review process, or anything else you're curious to know.

    Good luck!

    Hello, I applied to the fall '12 program as well. Not really sure how I'm feeling at this point though. I kinda feel like it'll be a long shot for me. As exciting as UF would be to get into, I rather stay down in Miami. I just wanted to feel like I had some options lol

    Hello! I also applied and am from Jacksonville as well. Any word on when we're supposed to hear back for decisions? From my research, it seems to be mid to late June.

    Hey there! I believe we are supposed to hear back around that time as well. I wish it weren't so late. Idk what they expect us to do about housing being that it is so late everything will pretty much be taken by then. All of the good places anyway.

    Yesi, options are always good. I thought my reply to your post was posted here last week.. I guess not. Anyway, optimism and prayer (if you believe in it) is key.. Anything is possible! I believe that God will put me where he wants me.. Regardless as to where it is, I'm fine with that. I have already put down a deposit and signed a lease at University House on 13th street so right about now I'm just going off of faith.. But good luck to you as well. Keep us updated!

    Okay, thanks! Yes, housing might be an issue for me as well. Although, I have heard from a good friend at UF that it is not that hard to find a decent place . As you probably already know, UF receives an amazingly large amount of applications and I suppose it takes them that long to review them carefully. On the bright side, at least they do not rush through them! To say that I am anxious would be an understatement!

    Have you applied anywhere else?

    To calculate your "science gpa", you calculate the gpa of your major science prerequisites (usually AP1, AP2, Micro, Chem, Psychology or Sociology, Nutrition).
