Good luck. I'm an SDSU graduate and I will just say right now that the programs are incredibly impacted, and this is the norm for pretty much all BSN programs within 150 miles of the school...
Get your pre-req's done at feeder schools, and don't expect much of a chance to get it if you don't have primarily A's. Ace the TEAS and get as many points as you can for the application process. Apply early. Get to know people.

Feeder schools meaning jc that feeds into the csu you want? Our jc here is impacted as is our csu. How was the program as sdsu any suggestions, good and bad points, dorm life? Also they just started in 2014 a freshman entry program with a four year track of pre req and ge. Not sure if its offered next year when we would be attending. She applies in October this year. Her high school gpa now is 4.13.. she exceeds the eligibility index and has received A grades in bio,chem and ap bio as well as anatomy. Sadly they dont look at any of that. Fullerton and Sac state both look at the entire picture. This is so frustrating as a parent and I wonder if she should change her major. Here we have students with a five year wait!! Any tips are appreciated.

Also the TEAS for the new freshman sdsu program started this year must be taken after the prereqs are completed and your classification goes to "Nursing" major?

Is it possible for her to attend school out-of-state? There are schools in the Midwest and South that are accepting students with a 2.75 GPA, mediocre test scores and no waiting lists. She could obtain her nursing education out of state and return to CA instead of languishing on some waiting list.
