    Here's a timeline for when I found out that I was in for Fall 2012. The deadline was June 15th and I received my acceptance email on July 9th. There were people that received emails early the week before I did; however, they were not accepted. So no news may be good news.

    Just thought you guys would want to know how long it took in the past!

    I LOVE USF!!!! The College of Nursing has outstanding professors! We have access to all the major hospitals in the Tampa area for clinicals. The program is intense and be prepared to be exhausted by the end of the week. But it is so much fun! There are times that I wonder how in the world I will remember it all, then (like last week) we have a simulation and it all comes together. I couldn't ask for a better program!

    **** is great! She will be honest with you if there is anything else you need to do. She can also tell you about getting a permit to take Pathophysiology before you are in the program. Patho is the only class that you can take early. I also took it during the summer so it is doable but be prepared for a fast paced class. 40 chapters in 9 weeks! You will meet a couple people that are trying to get into the program, like yourself and the rest of the class will be 1st semester students. But the BEST part is that you will have a 4 credit course out of the way, so you will only have to take 13 credits hours that first semester instead of 17! One class doesn't seem like a big deal but it makes a huge difference that first semester.

    Good Luck getting into USF CON!

    Hi guys
    I am a transfer student in the process of applying for the Fall 2013 program. My overall GPA is a 3.8 with a prereqs GPA of 3.8 (The B in Micro and Psy). I took every course once. I have over 300 community service hours, and I read on the website that they value service hours. What are my chances of getting in?

    @PalmHarborMom What do you do at orientation/match day? Does it really last until 5pm? My cousin's wedding just happens to be that day at 4:30 and I am her maid of honor... The person I spoke to on the phone wasn't much help as to if I could leave early or not.

    Yes, you will be there all day. On that day, you find get matched up with your clinical group AND learn all about the program... its expectations, requirements and everything that you need to do before the program starts. Leaving early might be hard depending on your clinical site but I would have it worked out beforehand. I do clinicals at the VA and we went to the hospital (its across the street) for a tour in addition to everything else.

    There was also a uniform representative on site for my Match Day to take uniform orders, so either bring cash or a credit card. I do suggest trying on the uniforms and I found the mens to fit better (they are smaller and have a smaller waist), also make sure that they are long enough if you are tall, mine shrunk in length. Scrubs cost $100 per set. You'll wear them for Lab and for clinicals so unless you like doing laundry multiple times a week, get more than one set if you can.

    Wow, all of this is intense. I applied for the school in general and still haven't heard from them...I guess they're waiting for me to finish all my credits in my community college.. I wonder what's the best outline for making a great essay for USF would be? Like making three major points...what did you talk about in yours @PalmHarborMom? also have you made any new friends..is everyone friendly..like you guys get to go out for fun once in a while?
