    Hi everyone!!

    I applies for spring 2011 bsn program and have been pretty much stalking the sims website!! Does anyone have an idea of when we'll know a decision? I've been reading other posts on here, and it seems like the time period between the deadline and when people have found out is from a few weeks to over two months!! Ah! I am so anxious to know!

    A friend of mine, who has also applied for Spring 2011 admission, was told that a decision could be expected around the middle of October. That seems a bit premature to me given the volume of applications that need to be screened and evaluated.

    I've been looking at previous posts, (a little obsessively lol) from past semesters. And the deadline for Fall 2010 was Feb 1. Those applicants starting to hear back around the middle/end of I guess its possible that we could hear by middle of October!! I sure hope so...thats only 2 more weeks!

    Hi everyone!

    I applied for the Spring 2011 BSN program too. I am taking my last prereq (Microbiology) at AACC. I went through some of the older forums and the students for Spring 2010 didn't find out until early November. I really hope we dont have to wait that long!

    Realized I didnt answer the first question. I got an 87 on the TEAS. I only applied to UMD, so I really hope I get in!

    The UMB School of Nursing admissions process is a very, very thorough, fair one and, as a result of the processing time and the large number of applicants, the decision-making and the making of offers is quite extended. The goal for all decisions, and that includes the huge numbers of graduate and post graduate applications, is November 16. I am not saying that you will have to wait that long to hear, but it is possible. You might want to do yourself a favor and take a couple of weeks off before you check your application status again. Best of luck to you.

    Most of us who applied in the past and used these threads must have checked our status a thousand times. It is nerve wracking and seemingly takes forever, and admittedly, the day I found out I was accepted remains one of the high points of my experierence at UMB. (I am graduating this December.)
    Two things. The biggest one is that for ALL the classes you are taking now (prereqs or not) you must get a B or better; it will be one of the conditions of your offer letter. If you end up with a C they will offer your slot to someone else. Second, there will be some people that won't be accepted until literally the last minute because of Cs and late cancellations. It might be a good idea to think about a possible backup plan of action in case UMB doesn't work out. I know in the past some people that ended up not getting into UMB were able to get into Towson or Coppin without having to wait a semester but not sure about how they managed that. And lastly don't wrack your brain comparing GPAs, TEAS scores, etc. The committees seem to look at the whole picture, a high GPA for example doesn't guarantee being admitted. All that is out of your hands now anyway!! Focus on getting As and Bs in your current classes. I saw some of you talk about Chem and that is one class (Stats being the other) where some people start off well and end up with Cs.
    If you are done with school or have free time the best thing to do is enjoy it while you have it. Once we are into January 2011, you won't have time for much of anything besides school. Best of luck to you all!

    the suspense is killing me!! i only applied to UMB and AACC. i will be devastated if i did not make it into either one!!

    Best of luck to you....I am sure you should just try to forget about it for the next couple of weeks. I have no idea about AACC but UMB will likely not accept anyone before the first week of November. Be kind to yourself and, if you are finishing your prereqs, concentrate on doing as well as you can in them. You will be so glad you did as you will really need to know that stuff on the very first day of class. And it will also help if you stay in good physical shape. Really.

    Thanks I will try not to worry too much. Its just that so many things are going on at once and I need some sort of confirmation in a timely manner.

    I applied. Got a 92% on TEAS, but my GPA sucks. It's said committee ready for about a month now. Hopefully we all get in.
