CUNY Hunter Generic Pathway Fall 2012 - page 5

Hi, Just wondering if anyone out there applied for CUNY Hunter's generic pathway for fall 2012? Haven't seen a thread anywhere on this site so I thought I'd make one. :)... Read More

    Yeah 1 point on the NLN is NOT equal to 1 point in GPA, at all. They won't add them together. They probably have some specific system/formula of indexing GPAs. There is a LOT more variation among the NLN scores than in the GPAs. I *assume* 90% of the applicant GPAs fall between about 3.1-3.2 and 3.8ish, while the NLN could be anywhere from 115-120 to 160ish for 90% of applicants. Again, these are just assumptions.

    Adding them together definitely wouldn't make sense. The question is how do GPA and NLN points compare in a typical applicant pool. For instance, is 3.5 and 150 the same as 3.6 and 160? Or is 3.5 and 140 the same as 3.5 and 160...

    BAH this is confusing. Hopefully this year's applicants are not particularly stronger than previous years because if it's not... seemingly everyone in this thread has a good shot of getting in (ppl with 3.4 and ~140s composite NLN got in in previous threads I think......)

    Hey there Mush!! Welcome!

    Are you also applying to the generic program? How did you do on the NLN and GPA if you don't mind me asking?

    hey! i emailed maria and this was the answer that she gave me regarding how they will calculate the overall score of our gpa and nln:

    "a z score is developed to average the two numbers and then ranked."

    but theres nothing we can do now haha, just wait =)

    Hello all! I am applying to Hunter's accelerated program and katie0807 summed it up perfectly above - all we can do is wait! Does anyone know approximately when Hunter will let us know if we have been accepted? I have a decent nln score (155) but my overall GPA is rather low. My prerequisite grades are much better, but it doesn't seem like that will sway their decision much. Good luck to everyone!

    Nursinghopeful12! we have the exact same NLN score =)
    and maria told me that sometime in may we should hear back from them! and good luck, i heard accelerated is tougher to get into than generic since they take less amount of people!!

    Thanks for the update, Katie0807! I heard from a classmate that there were only 20 spots in the accelerated program this year, but I have no idea if that is accurate or not. Either way, the competition will be stiff with so many qualified applicants!

    I heard there were 25 seats in the accelerated this year hmmm

    Does anybody know how many people applied to the generic program last year? I heard that 700 people applied, but that included both generic and accelerated. They said that it was more people than usual. Wonder if this year will be the same...

    700!!!! Omg. That is rediculous. So then what GPAs n NLN scores were accepted? All this stuff is so discouraging.
  12. by   Bk100
    Yeah I was VERY surprised when I heard that as well... but again it includes BOTH generic and accelerated. I assume that it was about 400 generic applicants + 300 accelerated applicants.... who knows

    Apparently the average GPA was 3.5 and NLN was 145-155 for people accepted into the generic program last year....

    I have a question. I was accepted into Hunter College's pre nursing (Generic) for Fall 2012. I am a transfer student. This is a preview of some of the classes that Hunter gave me credit for: Microbiology 23000, Chem 120 Lecture with 103 Lab, Chem 104 lecture with 105 Lab, Eng 12000, His 11200 and Psy 100. Hunter College requires the following Chemistry courses: 100 lecture /lab 101 and 120 lecture / lab 121. My question: are my chemistry requirements sufficient since I took Chem 120 lecture with 103 lab and Chem 104 lecture with 105 lab?

    Thanks to all.
