    I got my letter today and I'm in! I wouldn't stress too much on GPA as ppl scared me off saying they looked for 3.8 and up. I have a 3.5 and even lower science GPA so that's not everything
    i guess I would have to agree with you in reference to the GPA. I have a 3.76, and a pretty high Science GPA, and I was waitlisted :-(I really wish I could figure out what I am doing wrong.

    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!!
