    I was in your position as well a few years back, I ended up going to one of the state schools and getting my B.S. in Sociology and not taking any other prereqs or anything and applying again. I got into a BSN program this year.

    So do you think because you enrolled in the university that improved your chances of getting accepted into the BSN program?

    I'm at fresno state and right now, students are only accepted in the fall to the university. I got into my program Fall 2012 and the cutoff was 3.8 gpa. The Spring cutoff was 3.5 or 3.6. It was a lot lower because only fresno state students were able to apply. If your school is like mine, it would definitely benefit you to transfer.

    The university I attend gives preference to its own students. You may have a better chance after taking some classes there.

    Hard to believe that OP didn't get in - those programs must have stellar applicants.

    OP, is relocation an option? I happen to know that University of New Mexico is currently SEEKING BSN students due to low number of qualified applicants - yep, hard to believe. There may be other state universities out there in the same situation.

    I dont just think, I know. It was some advice that one of the faculty on the admissions team gave me,they also suggested a non-science degree. At the traditional BSN level in my cohort most people either already have a bachelors in something other than nursing or are in the process of attaining one. But that may be specific to the school Im attending.
