Anyone else out there applying this October for Spring 2013 entry? Seems like a good idea to start a thread to give some support for each other for the crazy few months ahead. I know I am going to be a nervous wreck for a while, might as well not do it alone! I just wish they would post the application, and essay already so I can get things started already.

I'm only in my second week of the nursing program so I don't have much advice for those of you apply to start Spring 2013. I just wanted to say good luck and if you have any entrance questions feel free to ask [I might even have an answer

I'm applying too, I'm so nervous!! Have you finished your essay? I'm finishing it up, then I have to print out the class descriptions for all of the pre-reqs I've taken out of state and I'm done. Good luck to you!
Robyn_A since you offered about the questions
What was your GPA and your healthcare related experience when you got accepted. I just received my CNA but I haven't worked in the field yet so I'm wondering if that's going to hinder me.
Thanks in advance!!

My prereq GPA was 3.73. I basically have zero healthcare experience, except volunteering at a hospital. You should be fine! I think that the admissions people like to see a well rounded candidate (open to new cultures, etc...) so not having a 4.0 or tons of healthcare experience won't disqualify you.

I also need to print out class descriptions, thanks for reminding me!
I am still working on my essay, I have a lot on my plate right now so I am juggling things quite a bit. I am done with the essay except my first question, which has been unusually difficult for me. I know nursing is what I want to do it is the embodiment of my passion, and reason for life. For some reason though I have a really hard time putting it into elegant words, that flow well and dont just sound like statements.
Good luck to you, keep me updated on your progress!

Yes, I've been trying to keep busy and not think about it, but I can't help myself!!
So do you think the acceptance letters will be sent out by December 1st? I know the website said sometime in December but I wish it was more specific.

Olga the last time I talked to her said 6-8 weeks after application, so that puts us at 6 weeks this week. She said they were expecting to wrap up in 7 weeks and mailed out that weekend, so next weekend is the hopeful time to start seeing things. It will either be a very joyous Thanksgiving or one of mourning.

Okay I just went from curious about the results to "the results are coming, what if I don't get in?" lol It's okay I just need to breath, and also now I'm going to be stalking the mail man.

Have you got your letter most everyone else has? Mine came on Wednesday
Turned in my letter of intent on Thursday
Now I get to shop for things over Thanksgiving break so I can have them embroidered in time.
So ridiculously excited and nervous!
