0Apr 12, '10 by msrenee0320The letters aren't suppose to be mail for another couple weeks. I believe I was told late April early May. But the nursing department should have that info. I am just as anxious and excited but I prayed about it and let it go. Meet you when class starts (positive note)
0Apr 18, '10 by persephone162K this wait is taking sooo long I have my hopes up, as I would love to get into the program!
Have you recieved any letters yet? As well look forward to meeting everyone when class starts
Take Care, Persephone
0Apr 19, '10 by AnoetosNot yet.
I have a suspicion that we won't get them until winter term is over, so, last week of April or first week of May I am thinking at this point, but yeah, I am with you, I'd really like to know what I am going to be doing for the rest of my life.
1Apr 19, '10 by AnoetosEvery day I check the mail box and every day its not there and then I get really grumpy for a little while...
It's going on two months now, I am having a really hard time understanding what the hold up is...
Edited to Add: Advisor says the letters are going out next week (which is more or less what I figured, they want everyone to finish their Winter terms without distraction I am sure).
I guess it's just as well, we'll be between terms so I'll have the chance to absorb the rejection if that's what it is, or, on the other hand, contain and somewhat expend my joy if accepted.
0Apr 19, '10 by msrenee0320I'm with all of you. Today was the day to confirm the enrollment. I had to confirm my Statics today but at the same time If I'm not excepted I would not need to take this class.
1Apr 20, '10 by msrenee0320Hello everyone, I pray that all is well and you guys are still breathing from the anticipation lol.....I have some news, I spoke with my advisor (counselor) today 4/20 and she told me that the letters will leave out of Davenport next week. So we should know something by the end of next week. Good Luck to all or should I just say "I will see you all in class"
0Apr 24, '10 by promiseme1Anyone know just how much the professional recommendations factor into their decision?
0Apr 24, '10 by promiseme1Good grief, received an envelope in the mail from Davenport today and it scared me something awful. It turned out to be nothing of importance. I was looking at the previous threads from 2008 and 2009. I read that an acceptance letter comes in a large envelope and the denial letters comes in a standard envelope, anybody know if there is any truth to that? All this waiting can't be good for the !!!!!
0Apr 25, '10 by persephone162Hey Everyone!
OMG this wait is taking forever! I guess that it gives me time to try and hope
for the best.. My GPA was high though, and I have confirmed my classes,
however if I am not accepted then I wont of course be taking the classes..
I hope that I am, as I have worked soo hard, and feel that my recommedation
letters were of top notch people I work with. A MD, and Charge Nurse..
Well needless to say, I am going to need a ciggarrette this week, or a huge coffee
as the anticipation is getting a bit much! Hopefully everyone makes it ..
To answer everyones questions I know the recommendation letters weighed in heavily
with decisions along with your personal essay!
Well everyone let me know how it goes!
Take Care, Persephone
0Apr 26, '10 by promiseme1Any of you ladies know what the minimum score for the TEAS is? I'm really concerned, I have a good GPA, great recommendation letters and a pretty good essay but my TEAS score isn't all that! I'm hoping that it's the last thing they look at. I hope everyone on this thread makes it in, good luck everyone!!!!!!
I sure hope I have some hair left when this is all over with.
1Apr 26, '10 by AnoetosAccording to the webpage, the minimum test score will be set based on what the aggregate scores of the applicants actually are. So, there's really no way of knowing at this point. We'll either be accepted or we won't.
I did ok on the TEAS, got good refs and my essay is strong. My problem is that even though I am carrying a 4.0, my transcript is VERY short. It would be nice if they were looking at winter grades too, but I don't think they are.
All the best of luck and grace to you all and, hopefully, we'll all be there in the fall.
