    Do you know if one needs to submit recommendations again in order to apply for summer?

    well since the references were apart of the application it likely that we send in more references.

    do you know how many people they accept each semester?

    Ohh... It will be embarrasing to ask my professors for new references...

    I know for Spring 09 they took 8 students out of 68 applicants. Their preference is NM residents.

    For Summer I think they will take 12, however I am not sure.

    Good luck guys!

    I'm a NM resident, and UNM CON grad from a year ago. The CON definately prefers NM residents, though I had a few classmates who were not.

    To give you an idea of size, my class was 60+ students. 16 of us were second-degree students; the rest regular 4 year students. I recall for sure only 3 or 4 from out of state, but I didn't really know the whole class well.

    I found it helpful to communicate with an advisor at CON during the whole application process. They were always responsive, and thus I was assured that I was doing the right things. Of course, it also helped that I could show up there once or twice to actually speak with someone face to face.

    Narimanaz, I'm thinking that when you say they took only 8 students, you mean non-residents?

    Medic09, They took 8 students including residents and non-residents. They had 68 applicants and I think 48 of them were qualified, so they were selecting out of those 48.

    Good to luck to everyone as they apply! As a side note, I believe that the September 15th application was for both Spring and Summer admission. The next application deadline is February 15th and this is for Fall 2009 admission.

    Okay, I think I got it figured out. That must be 8 from outside UNM. Most of my classmates had done freshman and sophomore years at UNM. Only a few (in addition to us second-degree folks) came from other colleges.

    That's pretty rough! Good luck!

    You have lots of BSN programs closer to home. Why UNM?

    Sept 15th was deadline for both spring and summer, that is right. But you could only apply to one semester. If you want to apply to Summer semester I think the new deadline is Febr 15th, same as for fall 09. I know that you have to do the application process all over again.

    I was applying for second degree program. BSN programs around here require a lot of prerequisites and do not start until Summer or Fall. I was admitted to NMSU, so I am gonna start there. Its pretty much the same program, however I like UNM better because it is more organized. I will try to apply for Summer to UNM, if I get in I might continue (or start over) at UNM, if not I will continue at NMSU.
