NJCU FastTrack BSN Program Admission Requirements - page 6

I'm getting ready to apply to the 2011 FastTrack BSN Program at New Jersey City University. I was wondering what standards people had that were accepted to the program in the past. I know it says 3.0... Read More

    I am currently waiting to hear back for the Fall cohort. Do you know who you spoke to when you called the other day? I have a friend that is currently in the program and she said that 4-6 weeks was somewhat accurate for them getting back to everyone.

    It was Samantha. They may have gotten back to people more quickly in the past, but they received a record number of applications for this fall cohort, so that is why I know it will take longer than the 4-6 weeks originally quoted.

    wow @record number of applicants. I wonder how they are making selections.
  4. by   east-westRN
    You can assume at least half of the 300 or so are not viable candidates-

    Who said there were 300 applicants?
  6. by   east-westRN
    Other friends who have applied to the same cohort said that people in the nursing department told them about the very high number

    Oh, yeah I mean I thought it was more like 500...but you think 300?
  8. by   east-westRN
    Yeah i think 300 based upon what my friends told me. Other boards on this site also say that there were about 300 as well. Who knows!!

    Good thing I am busy this summer or else i would sit around and obsess until July!

    I think we will be finding out by the middle of July. It sucks waiting but there's not much to do at this point. I don't really know what selection criteria is most important to the school... We are all in the same boat waiting.

    Has anyone called this week for another update? We're past the 4 week mark now! As far as selection criteria, I know they strongly consider your pre-requisite grades, HESI score and recommendations.

    I took the test on May 17th 2011 for the Fall Jersey City campus. I scored an 84.86% on a class average that is 80. I'm playing this waiting game which is nerve wrecking. My gpa is 2.7 when I was at another university. I know its bad...but my science prerequisites at a community college are A's and B's with a 3.5 gpa. So I'm not sure what they are going to look at. I recently called the Secretary up and she says they are in the decision making process. Has anyone been accepted with less than a 3.0? Recommendation letters are from my boss, chemist, and collegue. Any opinion? Give it to me straight.

    How were you able to take the HESI 4 weeks after the deadline of May 20?
