    I'm not sure exactly what criteria is more important in the admissions decision. For reference, I was accepted, but this will be my second Bachelor's degree. I earned my first degree in Biology about a year and a half ago. My overall GPA is around 3.5 and I received mostly A's in the prerequisite courses (with one C), but I scored a 98% on the TEAS, so I think that is probably what really helped me the most.

    SB113,

    I also had a 3.7 something and a 3.8 science gpa. Your gpa should have been good enough but there may be something that held you back...if you re-took classes or did not score in "advanced" on the TEAS that may have hurt your application. They also favor towson students for non-2nd bachelors students. But like you said, I'm declining my acceptance and so will others so dont lose hope! a 3.7 gpa is really an achievement you should be proud of, its just that SO MANY people apply to BSN programs now.

    I hear ya... I live about 10 minutes from campus and didn't get a letter. I hope by tomorrow I do.. although the nursing office said if you don't get a letter by Thursday or Friday to call in. I am pretty nervous, don't have high hopes of getting in but we shall see how this goes! Congrats of those who got in!

    Does anyone know how many students applied/how many were accepted for the spring? I know it's supposedly less competitive than in fall. Just curious!

    When you are wait listed, do you find out what spot you are on the list?

    Take my advice , write to Mrs. Necker...it won't hurt (or maybe it will, like it did me). Still, she's exceptionally nice!!

    There isn't a wait list number. You wait until the end of semester and if your taking any courses you submit your official transcripts. At that time they will look at the number of accepted applicants that turn down there acceptance and they will pull wait list applicants according to GPA solely. The highest will get the first pull until all the slots are filled. Good luck everyone!

    Got my letter today and I was waitlisted as well. At least I was not rejected.

    Ugh, still no letter. This is frustrating! I called to ask if anything happened or it somehow didn't get sent. I live so close to campus so definitely doesn't make sense...

    does anyone know of people who were accepted into the nursing program but not the university itself? also, does anyone know how many male students are in TU's program? Thanks, and good luck to all!
