    I must say, I don't think anyone that is still waiting is rejected, I'm basing this on last years results. I was rejected and I noticed I was made aware of my status before anyone else posted their statuses of being accepted or wait listed. I believe everyone waiting is either accepted or wait listed. But this is just an assumption!

    Good luck everyone

    Exactly blacksapphire basically rejections and first acceptances go out. Based on the acceptances waitlisting or more acceptances go out. This is what I'm getting based on my experience last semester

    Hi everyone,

    I am still waiting! My status is still committee ready. What does this mean?

    Congratulations to everyone accepted.

    My status is still committee ready as well, it just means they havent come to a decision yet, or at least havent gotten to you yet. I called the admissions office yesterday morning to see how much longer they predict the process to take and they said I could find out anytime between now and two weeks!! So there is still plenty of time. Hang in there!

    Also she said we will definitely find out online first, then we get the phone call..if you didn't know that already

    My status went from admit back to committee ready, so it appears that the only sure fire way of knowing is if you get a letter or phone call.

    For anyone who got accepted? I'm a bit confused when orientation is and what the deadline is to turn in all the required forms? The website only tells the dates for Fall. For anyone still waiting, I hope you get in! I got a call Friday, but I missed it so I just checked out my status online. Last semester, I was waitlisted.

    I'm not sure about the date of orientation but for the forms my letter said I had to return my enrollment form within two weeks and that my other forms had to be in by orientation. The calendar on their website said classes start January 23 so I'm guessing orientation is either earlier that week or the week before.

    But I'm sure they'll update the website soon and that that will give you definitive information

    I was accepted into the UMB Spring 2013 program for BSN. I will be riding the light rail into the city to get to class - anyone else in the same boat? The light rail is literally right down the street from my house, within walking distance. I am pretty excited to save the money on gas and not have to drive!

    To everyone who was accepted, may I ask what your gpa was, what you were worried about on your application, what do you think stood out in your statement of goals and objectives, what your teas score was and HOW FREAKING EXCITED ARE YOU THAT YOU GOT IN?! Congrats to everyone. I'll be applying for spring 2014 and I can't wait to go to one of the BEST nursing schools in the country!
    I was worried about some withdrawals I had at the beginning of my college career. I had a GPA of 3.68 and my science GPA was 3.8.... but I didn't do so well at my TEAS. I didn't really have time to study much between all the classes I was taking at the time and I ended up with a 78%. I really wasn't sure if I was going to get in between my grades and my TEAS score. Honestly, I am glad to share this with you because prior to applying I was really curious what other's GPAs/TEAS scores were and I had a difficult time finding that information! As for that personal essay, I wrote about my own experiences with being sick (I had undiagnosed Lyme for several years) and how that gave me an empathy towards others and an appreciation for medicine. I also explained that some of the withdrawals stemmed from always being sick with this "mysterious" illness that I later found out I had. I was nervous to submit my essay because I thought it could maybe back fire on me- maybe it wouldn't look good to admit to having been pretty ill. My health is good now, and I feel great... but I was afraid of the negative stigma attached to it. Also, my Microbiology prof who wrote one of my recommendations said to check off the box that states that you do not want to read your letter of recommendation - she said that looks good on your part. Anyway, just write it from the heart- that's what I did! Good luck to you! ...and yes, I am sooooo excited to start!

    Also, like someone else mentioned, they DO look at the whole package - not just GPA! I included all of the charity work and volunteer work I have done on my resume. I also have worked at Advanced Radiology for several years and was able to have one of our physicians write me a letter of recommendation. I am not positive but I was assume that working in the medical field, no matter your position, probably helps to some degree. Anyway - keep your head up! I never thought I would get in. I have been nervous since August. It is honestly a dream come true for me!

    I plan on taking the light rail too! I'm a little nervous about the walk to the school from the Lexington Market stop though (w/c I think is the closest one).

    Sweet! What stop will you be getting on? I am right at Ferndale. At least if our schedules coincide we can walk together and feel a lot safer.
