I also talked with a counselor this week and she seems to think that they will still go by GPA for 2012 but wasn't too sure. She said that they are definitely going to change the criteria after next fall. There was a possibility of them implementing the TEAS test and doing interviews but again she couldn't tell me for sure. Because I am retaking 2 classes this summer, she told me to go ahead and repeat them because no one knows for sure what is going to happen(Ugh!). If they change the process before 2012, I am going to be very upset.
I know EXACTLY how you feel! I am going to be very upset if they change the process before 2012 as well. That being said, I don't think it's likely.
I spoke to a counselor the other day, and I brought up the exact same concerns. I have to retake three classes (two A-'s and a B, how terrible right lol). I brought up my concerns about them changing the requirements. While the counselor couldn't say for sure, he explained something to me.
Theoretically, people who didn't get in for Fall of 2011 could retake all their classes in summer I and submit an application to the nursing program right away. If they were going to make any changes for Fall of 2012, they would have to announce them before people resubmitted their apps right? This is what was told to me by a counselor.
He basically said that while he couldn't say for sure, it was highly unlikely that the program requirements would change for fall of 2012. For fall of 2013? Probably changes will be made by that time.
I know, it sucks to not know. But we can't go on 'hear-say', we can't just randomly take classes or exams like the TEAS when we have no idea what the changes may or may not be.
I was told to just retake the classes, cross your fingers and pray! lol.
