What is Your School's Selection Rate?

  1. 0 Just curious. It was told to us yesterday during orientation that 112 RN student candidates were selected out of 1235 applications to nursing school. That is over a 90 percent rejection rate! Is it that comparable to get into other nursing schools?

    Yes. My school accepts 64 out of over 400. It's kind of cutthroat right now.

    Our ADN program accepted 20 twice a year.. the semester I was accepted 217 applied. Now they cut down and are only taking 35 once a year.

    I'm not certain if it's accurate, but I heard there were about 500 applicants for 35 spots in my program. I feel very lucky!

    They told us that 48 people applied this semester and that half got accepted. It used to be more than 100 each semester.

    I'm not sure about the freshman rate, but I transferred from a CC to a BSN program and they said they had 160ish transfer applications and accepted six people.

    Geez! I'm grateful that I'm in a small community. We had 127 apply for 50 spots at 2 campuses.

    My program accepts 60 in the fall (40 ASN and 20 LPN) from about 500 applicants.

    My program accepted 120 for my class. At our first orientation in May they told us that it had become so competetive that everyone who got accepted had at least a 3.5 GPA.

    My program gets 400+ applicants and only accept the top 40 students! I know people who have been trying to get in for years. Lucky for me I got in on my 2nd try!

    I am in a direct entry NP program (No prior nursing experience or degree). There were about 180 applicants with only 18 accepted.

    My school accepts the top 40 and the semester I applied, they received 254 applications. I applied at the last minute and got accepted. When I told my friends and family I had gotten accepted, EVERYONE'S first response was 'are you taking prerequisites or are you in the program'? I was slightly offended. Why would I say that I was IN the program if I wasnt IN the program? *rolls eyes*
