I want a rough estimate. Do you think the longer the wait, the more likely you got rejected? Deadline for nursing majors was Feb 1st.

Quote from UVA Grad Nursing
It will depend on many factors.
At my institution, we have many nursing programs (high school entry, transfer, Direct Entry MSN, MSN, Post-MSN, PHD, DNP). Each has different deadlines. With some programs all decisions are posted online at the same time; other programs have "rolling admissions" which gives you a response approximately 1 month after we have received all the transcripts, recommendations, etc.
It will also depend on how many applications are received and who reads the files. Faculty are very busy with their own teaching and clinical assignments, so involving faculty review in applications is resource-intensive and time-consuming. The number of applications received also affects the time taken to review everything. For example, we have a BSN program that admits students directly from high school (with nursing classes starting in the freshman year). This year we received over 540 applications for 60 spaces. With 9 applications for every space in this class, the admissions committee will spend a lot of time reviewing and discussing the candidates.
?! I didn't think it would be that many! One of my universities I applied to is going to get a decision made by March 15th.. As for the other schools I applied to, I have no clue when I'll get the letter.
I thought out of all those applications, they pick out certain ones and if you qualify, they will review your all your stuff after Feb. 1st..
They sent out a letter to those who qualified and I got a letter but I'm starting to think everyone who sent in an application got one. -,-
