Anyone accepted in programs want to post stats for future applicants?

    Thought it might be nice to compiled stats, experiences, and acceptances of 2013 applicants into one thread. I know as a potential 2014 applicant, the process is daunting and its hard to find solid stats from the schools themselves. Maybe just where you applied, where you got in, and what gpa/degree, work/volunteer experiences you had?

    I only applied to Missouri State University and got accepted! I just finished up my associate of arts degree in December 2012 with a 4.0 GPA. I don't have any previous patient care experience, but I have worked as a medical transcriptionist for 5 years next month, which my school counted as healthcare experience. The only volunteer hours I had were 9 hours that were required for my Sociology class at Ronald McDonald House.

    The admissions at my school go by a point system taking into account GPA; the grades you received on your first attempt at chemistry, anatomy, and math; previous healthcare experience; and students who took their pre-reqs at the university got extra points (which I didn't; I took my pre-reqs at a local community college).

    Graduated with a BA from Mount Holyoke College with a 3.74. All pre-reqs were 4.0. Mediocre GRE scores. Under 20 hours of "shadowing" at a local hospital. No nursing experience (yet!).

    Wait listed at MGH and UVM. Accepted at Simmons and UMass Medical. Will be attending UMass since it is a direct entry to DNP program and, as a state school, it has several grants and loan forgiveness programs.
