    Hi! I also applied to OLOL to get in for the Fall 2012 semester!! I havent' gotten my letter yet being that my address is in Texas... From your GPA that you said in an earlier comment, what classes did that include? I'm so anxious to know where I stand and I am hoping that I was accepted also!!

    Dai12 Hi I don't live too far from Baton Rouge that's why I'm a little worried that is hasn't came yet. I have all the classes except Micro, Micro Lab, and Nutrition which I'm enrolled in this semester! How many classes do you have left? Or are you finished already?!!

    That is weird! You should call to see what address you have on file! But right now what I have left is micro lab, religion, and the introduction to nursing program class, and for this current semester I'm in, I'm taking micro lab... I was going to take the other two in the summer of course if or when hopefully I'm excepted! What school did you take most of your classes at? I'm at Nicholls State right now! Have you heard if they are kind of easy to get in? The anticipation is killing me!

    I called and admissions said it should be here by todayI took most of my classes at Southeastern...did you apply to Nicholls as well? I just applied there as a backup but my heart is really set on the Lake! What is your GPA at the Lake?!! I know they go off of the essay as well so hopefully we both did great and will be recieving acceptance letters soon

    Ahh I hope so!!... Yes, I am applying to Nicholl's, but of course here we wouldn't know if were accepted til May 18! I really want to go to OLOL also, I need a change of school and I heard it was an excellent school! I think my GPA, if I did it right, is a 3.29 (My only C was in A&P1, which I took over and got a B, so I averaged them two together)! What classes were we suppose to average to find out the GPA anyway? & to me my essay was pretty good! I'm just as nervous and excited and overwhelmed as you! Trust me! For Nicholl's Nursing, my GPA is a 3.61 IF I get an A in Micro which I'm retaking now and I'm taking Philosophy now as my humanity, which I should get an A in also!

    I got my letter today...I was placed on the alternate list  which is okay because i wasn't totally denied. I hope you get in though that will still be a blessing! They said they were pleases to inform me that I was put on that list so maybe they pick a few people from there every year I was numbed at first but I gotta keep the faith and know anything can happen with God on my side!

    We need 61 hours total at OLOL! I which are all those sciences, 2 English, 2 humanities, communications, and 3 arts/science electives! My GPA at Nicholls is a 3.4 right now just missing the Micro as well so hopefully I can pull off an A in there and spike my GPA up a little. What have you heard were the going GPAs in the past semesters?!! I still want to get into OLOL...but on the other hand whatever God has for me I will take it

    @ Nelle0802, Hey sorry I took so long to write back... Im sure you still have a great chance... keep praying & so will I...trust me it will work out for you in the end. Keep me posted...God Bless

    Omg!!! well anything is possible!!! like you say its still a great chance! Just dont give up. I am a senior, 21 here at NSU and Im not giving up! But what exactly is an alternate list, meaning more available seats??? I haven't gotten mines yet tho! Anyway, ookk I have to redo my GPA then! But for GPAs for NSU last semester ppl got in with 3.2's and up, however they were predominantly NSU students! I dont know anybody outside of NSU who applied. Me, I didn't get accepted last semester, just was qualified, and my GPA was a 3.3, but I had a couple retakes and was transferring 3 courses from other schools, so its pretty competitive! It's weird how they calculate everything!

    Hey girl!! I got on the alternate list either!! Received my letter today! So do you know what that means!??? Like whats the next step. I will call Monday morning!
  11. by   Nelle0802
    You got on the alternate list too?!!! I called three times Friday and left two voicemails and no one returned my call yet! You have to speak with the admission specialist. I've been looking up the rate at which people on alternate list get accepted and it's pretty high so hopefully we both get in! At least we didn't get total denied!!! But we both need to pray extra hard...the only thing about that is they can call you at anytime so does that mean we have certain extra days to complete it say if they call two days before school starts?!! That's what I want to know.

    @ dia02....The alternate list is a waiting list, if a spot becomes available then they chose potential candidates from that list (I should know, I was put on the alternate list twice @ William Carey). I think they are looking for the completion of the prereq. Because @ Nelle0802 your GPA was much higher than mine & I also had 2 repeated courses (A&P II Lab & Micro Lab)... hopefully once you finish your required courses you both will be accepted... Keep calling they should let you know where you are on the list.... My friend is currently in the program & she says they never answer the phone.. If you have time take a ride to the campus and speak with someone in person....
