OHSU ABS Program

  1. Hi, I'm interested in applying for the accelerated BSN program at OHSU (2010 start) and was wondering if anybody out there has been through the process and has a better idea what OHSU is looking for when they choose students for the program. Aside from what's posted on OHSU's website (>3.0 gpa, pre-reqs, etc..) do you know if there's anything else they use, such as a point system, to determine who gets in? I'll be finishing my pre-reqs prior to matriculation, but I won't be done with them before I apply. Do you know how much, if at all, this would hurt my chances of getting in? Thanks a bunch.

    I've heard many who were accepted had Masters degrees...

    Hi Dusty- I am starting the acclerated program this June. I was put on the alternate list at first but made it in I think they go by a point system, as they did not accept letters of rec. I just finished the last of my pre-reqs this semester, so I wouldn't worry about that affecting your chances. The kickers, it seems- are GPA, your letter of interest, and experience. I have heard that around 25% of the admitted applicants have Master's degrees (I do), and that they only accept around 30% of each class from out of state (I'm from Colorado).

    Good luck!
