Is Anyone Out there an Evergreen Grad.? Need advice!

  1. I'm looking to enter OHSU for their accelerated BSN program in the near future. I graduated from the Evergreen State College (no grades, narrative evals.) in '94. I wonder if anyone has any knowledge of what OHSU's process is with Evergreen Grad's. I'm taking the prerequisites at community college and expect to have a 4.0. I've heard that a lot of Ivy League schools really like Evergreen Grad.'s but have no idea what OHSU makes of them. Anyone out there who can offer up some good information?

    I'm an Evergreen grad! I applied to four schools this year and got into three. I did not get into OHSU but I did get into Linfield and U of P. Don't be scared about your transcripts, they know what to do with them. However, some of my credits did not transfer. It's not a bad idea to get a transcript evaluation if you're really worried about them.

    Hey - not sure if you are still in the application process. I am also an Evergreen grad. I had pretty good success with getting into programs (though didn't apply to OHSU, but I would imagine that they are familiar with it). However, I did have one school not transfer any of my credits because I didn't have grades. That was just their rule. Other schools were fine with it. But I also would go for a transcript evaluation so there are no surprises.

    There are 3 Evergreen grads in my 64 person class @ OHSU alone. Hopefully you're already there or somewhere else wonderful, but if you aren't, don't give up hope. I kind of think the written transcripts are a factor in our favor, because it = many letters of recommendation that the admissions folks can't NOT read.
