    Just read on the lsu bsn thread that according to the dean of nursing letters are possibly coming out next week and their are no denials only alternates, idk what she means by alternates but I guess it's better then a flat out denial... She also said that 125 were accepted which seems like alot more then the previous semesters!

    For anyone else wondering about what the alternate list is since there are no Denial letters this time, according to the Dean of nursing school..... Basically, if a person gets an acceptance letter but denies the acceptance letter, the first person on the alternate list gets that spot into the nursing school.(its kinda like a wait list.)

    Hi guys! New here but I've been lurking for the past year so on the other LSU boards. I had my interview in Feb but now I'm just starting to become a nervous wreck. Only now am I doubting myself. I feel like my goal statement and interview sucked. I'm hoping that my prereq gpa of 3.5 and my hesi score of 88 will get me there! I saw that there may be no denial letters but I'm not holding my breath just yet. I already applied for financial aid just incase, I hope I didn't jinx myself!

    My aunt works for LSU nursing and she also told me that there are people who got in with the minimum GPA requirements (2.8)...AND there were even people on the alternate list with a 3.1...ahh!!! That can be good or bad news for some...

    I believe that people who doesn't attain a 3.5-4.0 gpa is capable of doing/being anything they strive to be. Just gotta work hard and have goals and dedication! =D

    A lot of the forms in the new student section on the website has been changed to reflect the 2012/2013 school year while others have not. The course schedule is also posted. I hope this means they will be sending the letters out any day now!

    Does anyone want to be brave and call the office of student affairs and see what the status of the letters are?
