Hello there! I am a prospective NIU Nursing student! I currently have a 3.9 GPA and I got a 110 on the Accuplacer... I have gotten into all my other schools like AU, Bradley, Western IL, Saint Xavier, but I sit here waiting on... Read More

Since I've been back in school (I'm 26 now) I have a 4.0, but my DePaul transcripts brough it down to a 3.2. It really doesn't seem fair to be judging someone on something that happened so long ago. Good luck, and I hope you can appeal!

Good luck to everyone! Just knowing one way or the other is a big relief, to start making plans.

I got my letter today from NIU and have been accepted too. It's a very hard decision to make and wondering why you would chose one over the other.

Heard the nursing program was great but that was over 5 years ago that I went there.Teeanne, I remember you on the Aurora University discussion board.

- 0Apr 20, '13 by ReneRThanks jessieleb, I went back and re-looked at everything. Aurora has a much higher pass rate for the nursing state boards, which to me means that they have a better program. So, I am going to stick with my decision and go to Aurora and deny entrance into NIU. That will open up at least one spot on their waiting list.

Hello. It seems that we may have the same issue. Right now I am applying at NIU. Admissions was asking for my transcript from 20 yrs ago from another country. I am wondering what happened to your application and they ever gave you a special consideration.
I hope you reply on this I need to hear from you
