    That sounds so promising Denii23! Good for you. Which campuses are you applying to?

    I am only applying to Tulsa. I really wanted to apply to all campuses, but my husband doesn't think it makes sense for us to move for my schooling, since his job is in Tulsa and he's paying the bills right now. It's a huge disappointment because I feel like my chances are so much slimmer with only applying to one campus. If it were up to me, I'd apply to every program I qualified for in the country lol. I am so ready to get started.

    Definitely all we can do is try. I am expecting to be waitlisted, but if I can end this semester with A's then I think I should be a sure in for next year if nothing else. Just don't want to wait that long.
    I totally understand and I'm in the same boat as you. My only saving grace is that my husband travels so much and can work remotely. Plus we are kid-free and are looking for a change so we are happy to move. Not that Oklahoma is where I want to spend the rest of my life but we are looking for a change of pace/scenery. I'm applying to quite a few schools (to maximize my options) and boy do the application fee's add up. I feel like this year is my one shot because I'm like you, I don't want to wait another full year to apply again.

    I think you'll be just fine! If I recall correctly, the Tulsa campus takes nearly the same amount of students, maybe just a few less than OKC.

    When it comes to my OU chances, I don't feel like they're great. My last 60 hours were middle of the road but my prerequisites are good. I did all I can do and its up to the universe now. Who knows, maybe we will be classmates in Tulsa soon!

    I'm applying to the Tulsa and OKC campus but Tulsa is my first choice. I go to NSU in Tahlequah and all of my family lives near Tulsa so that's why its my first choice. I don't really know the OKC area well and I'm not sure how I would adjust to moving to such a large area..
    What schools are you guys applying to? I'm narrowing my choices down right now so I don't have to apply to more than 5 schools.

    I just applied to the OKC campus and I am super nervous. I have a GPA of 3.8 for last 60 and a 3.5 science. But, I have a lot of courses still in the works - 16 hours of prerequisites. So, I'm not feeling too hopeful, but we'll see!

    Also, to the OP, I believe they don't care about your cumulative GPA for all coursework. It's only the last 60 hours and science prerequisites they consider. Since you think you will have a 4.0 for both, you are doing great!!
