Hey fellow future nurses!
Is anyone applying for Linfield BSN this go around? I just submitted my insight resume- PHEW! Who knew talking about yourself could be so tough?
Good luck to any and all...keeping my fingers crossed.

I actually applied in Feb. of this year. I was in the process of doing 232, stats 243, anth, and soc. I still had 233 and bio 101&103 to finish. I got denied by up and ohsu but never completed my app for linfield cause I realized I was short on credits. Now I have all of my prereq's done and I am taking the extra classes linfield requires (history, art, ethics) in the fall.
As far as you go, I don't think you should feel too bad about the classes you have left. As long as you have the minimum, which is on their website, that's all they require. It sounds like to me that you have only a couple left to take.
I talked to ---------- at linfield and she broke down the point system a little for me.
It is based on a total of 100 points. 50 are gpa with it broken down like this: 28 is your science with labs, 14 is your total prereq's that are required for the program, and 8 is your cumulative gpa. So as you see, the heaviest weight is on you sciences. Then the essays are worth 36 points- 3 possible points for each question with 2 people reading them and scoring separately. I don't where the other 14 points come from.
Hopefully that made sense

Wow, I just found the FB page you were talking about. I wish I had known it existed! I liked the Linfield Portland page, but it's pretty quite.
Hmmm, wonder what happened in regards to the 60 people?
