Did anyone else receive an acceptance letter from OHSU today? My wife and I were both accepted to University of Portland in March, and she just received her OHSU acceptance letter today (I didn't apply there unfortunately).... Read More
- 0Apr 5, '05 by oregonreneQuote from gracefulcDon't despair, I got accepted at U of P but I called them to decline, so there's one more spot available for somebody else! My GPA is 3.83 cumulative and I just have a little bit of volunteer experience at a hospital. All my prereqs were at 4.0 though. I'm older (39) and have a prior degree in HR Management but I've been a stay-at-home mom for the past 14 years. You'll get in somewhere - keep positive thoughts.I had a mix-up regarding financial aid with U of Portland which required me to call their admissions office and be sure my acceptance letter wasn't lost in the mail. They informed me that all acceptance letters had been mailed 2 weeks ago (3 weeks now) and they were compiling a wait list. They were hoping to send the wait list and decline letters out by the start of this week (apr.4).
I received a rejection from OHSU today and to say the least I am quite dissapointed as I have now been rejected from 2 of 4 universitys I applied to and I doubt I will get in to Linfield or Seattle U since I didn't get in to the other two. May I inquire as to what kinds of experience and GPA those of you who were accepted to OHSU and UofP had? If you would prefer not to say, I understand. I'm just trying to figure out what it's going to take for me to get in!
- 0May 7, '05 by MedoraI applied to both the BSN program and a Grad Entry program at OHSU and they put me on the alternate lists for both programs. I think I have decided to go to New York University instead because the program is only 15 months. I just want to be a nurse. I never thought it would be this difficult to do something that's so common and in such demand. It's nursing, not medical school! I talked to a girl in my Anatomy class who has a degree in biology and has worked as a nursing assistant for years. She had a 3.8 GPA in her prerequisites and got declined from OHSU. I only had a 3.4 so I feel lucky to have even gotten on the list. I guess the upside is that with all the competition, at least there will be some smart nurses out there.
