Yeah. There is a lot of work ahead but I'm ready!!
Well after all of this ROLLER coaster stuff, I got the call today that i was ACCEPTED to the Dallas Campus!
They messed up my GPA, but all the spots were taken. They waited until someone declined and they gave me a spot. I'm very happy to say the least. I'm excited but I know the hard part has not even begun yet!!!!!!
Wow I talked to Teresa today and guess what she said. I was PROBABLY wait listed because of my NET score. SO i asked her "so the GPA doesn't really matter much and someone with a lower GPA would get in before me" and she goes yes that is correct. She tried looking for my folder, guess what? She could not find it. She told me to call back Monday and speak to Erin. What a B/S procedure and how unorganized they are. One person tells me it was because of my 3.8 GPA and another because of my NET score. Who do I believe? lol. :chuckle:chuckle:chuckle
I am a first degree student. No previous degrees at all. I made a B in Developmental Psychology first time and a B in Anatomy and Physiology I the first time. Those two classes I retook and got A's.
Anyhow I gotta go to work. But this is just almost funny to me.
Wow.Check this out. I just received an email from Erin Maurer, saying that my GPA was calculated as a 3.8!! Unless I'm getting lower Grade Points for a class I retook(which should NOT be happening) my GPA is EXACTLY a 3.927 which comes out to a 3.93. Can anyone tell me if they can calculate my GPA for me, since I might be making a mistake. I have taken EVERY pre-req except Woman's Studies and I received an A in each except for Chemistry ( i got a B). Only two classes were RETAKEN (a 3 Hour Class and a 4 Hour Class) and I received an A in them second time around.
Since I am not a shy person at all, below I will post all of my grades: (anyone who can take the time to calculate my GPA would be greatly appreciated) ^)^

Again, thank you very much in advance. If someone can find that I am wrong in my calculations I would be very happy if you can explain where my math went wrong.
Wow. I got an email today saying I was wait listed. How in the world does someone get wait listed with a 3.93 GPA? My accumulative NET was a 76. I got an 84 on my MATH section, I just heard that they don't even look at that portion.Erin sent me the email and I replied with a question to see why I was wait listed above all things. I'm still grateful to have the opportunity, but I just want a little bit more insight into their thinking. To everyone who helped me out, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. Y'all have been wonderful.
My NET was not high at all. It was like a 67 or 68. But if someone had a 3.87, doesn't the person with the HIGHEST GPA get the spot as long as they passed the NET? I don't know how this works really. I just figure it would be somewhat understandable.
Yeah I will have to get a little more aggressive here. Maybe I'm receiving a rejection letter or as the lady on the phone today called it a "regret" letter. lol. I can't do much but laugh here. I'll call tomorrow and ask for Erin. I hope she can help a little bit more. Thanks everyone.
I've re-calculated my GPA 100 times. I used the SPREADSHEET they provide on their website. I only have ONE B and that is in Chemistry. Everything else is an A. It does sound weird and fishy to me as well. I just wanna know whats going on and what their decision was.
Her AggieNurse: If you don't mind me asking, what were your stats when you applied because I know you got accepted? I still haven't gotten any word from them yet. I called today, they really don't know anything. I should have gotten an acceptance letter by now, so all that is left is a REJECTION letter. With a 3.93 I didn't think I'd be getting one but hey everything is possible these days. Anyone get an ACCEPTANCE letter today?
I will definitely do that. I'll wait until tomorrow and call them if it does not arrive. I don't see why it shouldn't arrive tomorrow. Anyhow, thanks for the advice. Hope is all we have left lol.
This is the only school I have applied to and i ONLY want to go to the Dallas Campus. It's close to home and I won't have to worry about bills and the such while I'm in school. I've actually been able to save enough to pay off both years of nursing school without having to get any debt. YAY for me. Now I just gotta GET IN!!!
LOL.:chuckle Yeah i totally agree. It has been a wretched time for many on this post. The waiting...and the waiting...and MORE waiting... It can take a toll on a persons emotions. I just wanna know so that I can plan on QUITTING my darn job. I work for UPS as a P/T Supervisor for over 2 long years now. I CAN'T WAIT TO MOVE ON WITH MY LIFE!!!
I'm actually very nervous since I live in Mesquite, TX and I still haven't received a letter. I'm guessing it might be a rejection. I have a 3.93 GPA and a 67 0r 68 NET. Either way when I read that a 4.0 was not accepted, that kind of made me a little bit nervous. But to answer your questions, NO LETTER RECEIVED AS OF NOW. I'm hoping it arrives tomorrow.
I went to North Mesquite. When IT was a good school! I'm hoping they come as soon as possible so that I know where I stand. I received an Email on Monday saying I had coursework missing. Teresa was her name. She said I must complete my Computer Literacy Class before entering Nursing School. But I informed her that it was just RECOMMENDED to complete these classes before starting and NOT a requirement. She then changed her wording and said that I should do my Computer Literacy class this summer and finish Woman's Studies before I'm done with my Nursing Courses. It was interesting to hear her change it all around when she found out I was fairly well informed about what I needed to do.
I AM SO BORED MYSELF!!! I never thought I'd be saying I can't wait for school to start haha.
