    I heard that they already have about 150 and I've typically heard that they have anywhere from 200-300 applications.

    Hi, My name is Haley and I applied to the ABSN program at WSSU for Jan.2012. Just a little bit about myself, I graduated in '08 with a BS in Biological Anthropology from The George Washington University with a 2.97. Not my finest moments in academia, but I did grow personally at that time. I have all As in the pre-reqs except Chemistry, with a C. It was a summer class and I will never again work full time and take a hard science over the summer. It was terrible. Anyone else commuting from Charlotte if they are accepted?

    Anyways, I know we are all hoping to get in and I wish everyone good luck!

    I applied for jan 2012 as well...and live in charlotte....if we both get in maybe we can carpool. My undergrad gpa was 3.5 and im actually a chiropractor. 3.1 in chiro school. Many of the prereqs i took in chiro school...and got a's in some courses and not a's in some....i domt know how they will look at that...for example i took three separate anatomy courses, with three separate gross dissection labs, then a couple courses in neuroanatomy and a course in histology rather than the regular undergrad anatomy and phys courses...my grades ranged...a's b's and c's...but the courses were very very difficult. I wonder how they will equate them to undergrad courses, or if it will hurt my chances? Anyone who has been accepted in the past willing to share what kind of stats they had for acceptance?

    Also does anyone know how they look at how long ago you took a prerequisite course or if they care? My gen chem classes are a few years old, though i have taken biochem courses more recently....

    As long as the pre-reqs are not older than 10 years I think they are ok. A chiropractor seems like a great profession! Why the change? The commute is daunting! But, I will be lucky to get in and I am ready to start!
