Applying for UMSL's 2010 accelerated BSN program - Page 11Register Today!
- May 12, '10 by ree1986yeah I finish my finals yesterday, and finally bought my books today. Whew!! You're right those books are heavy and pricey. I am also looking forward to meeting everyone on Friday. Good luck to everyone still taking finals!
- May 20, '11 by yorienHey everyone, Im trying to get into umsls accelerated program for 2012. I know there is a ranking system they use to determine who gets in and who doesnt. To be frank I dont know just how competitive it is. Right now I've got a 3.83 oa gpa and a 3.0 science gpa. The transfer guide told me I should wait until the later application date so my science gpa will be higher. Any ideas?
- May 20, '11 by barnettdcmThey give twice as many points for your science GPA than for your other GPA so if you have more science classes to take, finish them before applying. The advisor I talked to (Jill) said she recommends taking atleast 3 of the 4 science classes before applying but ideally having them all done will give you the best shot.
- May 20, '11 by davisg01The answer to the gpa question varies...do you already have a bachelor's or are you entering as an undergraduate. If you already have a degree, the gpa requirement is less stringent. The advisors are pretty good at knowing what you need.
- May 21, '11 by barnettdcmOkay, I have to correct my previous post. The point system is for the traditional and the part time program. The accelerated has a higher GPA requirement(3.2 minimum I think) and they won't consider you unless you have atleast that. You should talk with an advisor though, they are really helpful. I was just there last week and talked to Jill.
- Sep 14, '11 by travkittyThis is a little late to the game regarding this post. But, if you don't already have a Bachelor's degree, you can apply for the HRSA scholarship. Just google HRSA. It's a full-ride, plus monthly stipend, & you just have to work a certain # of years in an "underserved" position. In the STL area, that would be about anywhere except an MD office or dialysis. I had 15 months financed (UMSL accelerated, summer class of 2010) & have a 2 year "obligation."
