    Hi Ames,I noticed someone had asked your question on another thread so I though I'd answer it for you. You can apply with Cs in prerequisites but have to get Bs or higher in all classes you're currently in regardless of whether or not they're prerequisites. I think the only thing that could disqualify someone related to the prereqs aside from grades is if they took one of the sciences online because their website says those ones must be done in a classroom.

    Grey Lady, Do you know how many applicants there were this year for the BSN?
    Once you remove the cancelled applications and the RN to BSN, we had around 300 for the traditional BSN program total.

    Sorry Grey Lady, another quick question. If you receive a C in any of the pre-reqs is that automatic denial for admission? Thanks for answering all these questions!
    A C in any class is not an automatic denial unless you are made an provisional offer of admission while you still have outstanding prequisites. Offers are made with the stipulation that any outstanding courses will be completed with a grade of B or better. Your offer would be rescinded if you do not meet this requirement.

    Cs in any of the sciences are pretty bad unless you have one heck of an explanation in your essay. Due to the competition, there have been semesters where no one was admitted with a C in the sciences. There is a direct correlation between students' science GPA and success in our program so we take it extremely seriously. A C in a non-science elective would not be so disturbing.

    Wow! Only about 47% of the applicants have a shot. Patience and faith is extremely vital right now for me.

    What the numbers do not tell you is the level of competitiveness of the candidates. That won't be clear until the entire admissions process is completed. That is one reason I hesitate to quote numbers - they don't give a true picture of any one candidate's chances.

    All new students will be initially called by the office of admissions. I call the Shady Grove students right after that. I would only be able to give you a date if I could predict how much longer the process will take.

    I just signed a tentative lease at Fayette Square Apartments (pending acceptance). The place is a bit pricey, but everything is included for the most part, the location is great, and the people I worked with in the leasing office were incredibly nice! If anyone else is looking for housing and has any questions about Fayette Square, I can give you the name of the woman who helped me. She was great.
    Getting excited!!!

    I am getting tired of this suspense. It will be terrible if at the end of all this, they deny giving me admission. It is even depressing to think about it.

    We are not the only nursing school. We also have no control over the quality of the applicants who apply for any given semester. I can assure you that candidates who were not successful the first time they applied were admitted the next time they tried. Take heart but do look at other opportunities. Best of luck!
