UNLV SON Summer 2013

  1. 0 Hey guys,

    I'm applying to the Summer 2013 semester at UNLV. My signing session is early February.

    It would be great to connect with other 2013 SON hopefuls.

    I'll be applying for Summer '13, too. My signing is on the 8th. I'm so nervous! How many points do you have on your worksheet? Mine isn't very good, but I'm hoping it gets me through.

    Yay I'm happy I've met someone applying!

    If I did my calculations right on the worksheet, I have 84 points. I think it's a slightly low score but I am missing a class. Summer is supposed to be easier to get into so hopefully an 84 is enough to get in. If I am not accepted this summer, then I will apply for fall with around 87-86 points and hopefully that will do it.

    What's your score?

    Pretty low, too. I think I have an 82.8... Overall composite Hesi score isn't included, right? Yeah, I've heard summer is easier to get into. Hopefully we make it!

    Sorry, it won't let me PM... So the Hesi portion is out of 500, not 400? If that's the case, I have 93 points, which would be awesome! I'm not missing any classes, unfortunately I didn't take my science classes seriously and lost points there. But luckily I got a pretty good score on the Hesi, a 91.5%.

    I applied to UNLV SON for Summer 2013 on Feb 1st. The signing session doesn't really tell you anything about your chances except that they are accepting 48 people. I also heard that there are A LOT of applicants forecasted this summer many of those are ones that did not get in this past Spring.

    This is my first time applying and I am missing 224 and 251 which I am taking this semester. Therefore my points are pretty low at 72.72. figured I would TRY to get in for summer with those two prereqs missing. However, if I don't get in for summer my points on fall should be 93.27 assuming I pass 224 and 251 with As.

    And btw the HESI OVERALL IS NOT INCLUDED IN CALCULATION.

    I also was told for Spring those that were accepted were between 86-98 points.

    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.

    It wasn't a signing session, at least i don't think. I met with an adviser, she made me an appointment to turn in my BSN application and then if I got in they would give me another appointment to actually do a signing for the contract. That's what I was told at least.

    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!

    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.
