    I heard that they already have about 150 and I've typically heard that they have anywhere from 200-300 applications.
    Wow! That's alot of applications!! And the deadline isn't until next Thursday! How long ago did you hear that figure?

    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!

    I have worked as a chiropractor for the past few years, and enjoyed it, however, the profession as a whole leaves alot to be desired...If you want to practice in an evidence based fashion, you are really limited in your ability to help people. I was recently laid off following the sale of the practice I was with, and see this as an opportunity to broaden my horizons and become employable in a field that I can always feel good about. I would like to take it further after gaining some experience and become a FNP as well.

    I did not get to meet with an advisor because I stumbled upon the program late, and there was no appointment availability before the applications were due, so I just sent everything in....

    Did they tell you about the 10 year old prereq rule firsthand or are u guessing about that? I ask because I took general chemistry 1 and 2 more than ten years ago....although I had three biochemistry courses, and a human nutrition course based in biochemistry since then...I wonder if they will let those count??

    They did not tell me about the pre-req rule, but with your biochemistries I would hope that they consider those as advanced courses and count them as well. You could always email them and ask.
