My roomate and I are going to be applying to U of H manoa school of nursing. We know we have a bit of a head start until we have to actually apply but we have a couple of questions for anyone that have been through the application process for University of Hawaii. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Background info: My roomate and I are from Seattle so we will be out of state students. We will have all of our classes (hopefully..) done by the application deadline so they will see our complete gpa.
1. Was the NLN difficult and how far in advance should we be studying? Also how far in advance of the application deadline should we take the test?
2. What is the average GPA of students that get in?
3. We deffinitely want to live off campus. How would we go about trying to find an apartment close to campus? We want a 2 bed 1 bath which from my research so far is difficult since most places that offer student housing are studio apartments or requires us to share a room. We were both Residence Advisors in freshmen dorms and needless to say we really love having our own space now. If anyone has a list of names of good apartments nearby feel free to let us know!
4. Going back to the apartments. If accepted should we be planning a trip in advance to find an apartment? How difficult is it to find an apartment for Spring semester instead of before Fall?
Some issues we ran into:
1. The NLN test is not offered at a facility in WA so we will have to get a proctor to administer the test.
2. Our school doesn't offer ANYTHING that will transfer over as an FG course. Which really sucks because it's the ONLY pre req class we still need. The UH admissions office told us to see if we can petition a similar class we have taken to see if it will qualify as an FG course. If that doesn't work we'll have to take an online course from UH to meet this requirement in the fall.
-I decided to put this up incase anyone else is running into the same problems.
Thank you for anyone taking the time to respond, I know it's a lot!
