    I had my signing session this week. The advisor that was in charge said they are expecting a large number if applicants, only because of the timing, not due to spring applicants reapplying ( only 64 applied). The advisor said that we will find out by March 15 if we've been selected. Good luck everyone!

    I'm missing those two classes also! I'm currently at about 82-85 points, I can't remember right now. I met with an adviser and she was pretty rude saying I had no chance of getting in (she didn't even bother to calculate my points and just assumed I didn't have enough). BUT she did give me an appointment to turn in my BSN app. Even if I don't get in this summer, my points from 224 and 251 will go towards fall semester.
    You might want to recheck your calculations and make sure you did not include the HESI overall score and well as make sure you are dividing your science base GPA by the total number of credit hours. The reason I say this is because its not possible to have the points you say you do with 224 and 251 missing at max if you scored 100% on the HESI and got all As in the other classes you would be around 80 points

    Good luck on micro midterm tomorrow. Studying for that now, have been for the past 4 days. A lot of info but not as bad as I thought it would be.

    How about that micro exam one....talk about critical thinking. I got a "B" which was disappointing because I studied my butt off and I felt like it should have been an "A" but some of those questions we way too detailed.

    I gave up on calculating my points. Different advisors keep telling me different ways to do it. If the way you did it is correct, then I'll have around the same points as you. The 251 exam wasn't so bad. I managed a 90% But I hated those questions where he put the students drawings and asked us to grade it. I thought it was a bit too biased.

    Hey everyone!
    I am also a hopeful candidate for being accepted into this upcoming summer term at UNLV; my signing session is on February 21st.
    I'm a bit nervous because I heard this is the largest pool of applicants UNLV's nursing program has had thus far. Considering the notion that summer term was one of the least competitive terms to get into I was quite shocked to hear they over filled signing sessions.
    I'm curious to know if others have heard the same?
    I have roughly 92 points & scored a 94 on the HESI. Good luck fellow hopefuls!

    I wouldn't worry about it since you have 92 points you should have no problem. A lot of people applying missing prereqs like myself so it sounds like you completed all yours with that high of points.

    I figured many people WOULDN'T apply for Summer because most people rely on financial and and it runs our by summertime but that's just not the case this year if there are so many summer applicants they will be payin for school somehow.

    Right? Having done all my prerequisites for the past three years I've been following the nursing program closely and I've never heard the advisers speak of such a high number of applicants applying especially for summer; ironically. Supposedly, last summer barely 60 people applied because of the tuition raise. Clearly, that is not an issue for many anymore. aha
