    My interviewer told me to reapply next year if I didn't get in at the end of my interview! This was completely unsolicited advice so it made me worry she knew something I didn't so I was surprised that I got in. It was definitely nerveracking knowing it was 50% of the admission decision.

    I also got accepted. It's a huge weight off of my shoulders because I wasn't sure how competitive I was for admission. There were so many impressive people at the interview...

    I'm on the wait-list at USD so hopefully that moves me up a bit. Did you already hear from UCLA? I know letter are supposed to go out this week.

    Hi AllisonHillary. I am reading through these posts regarding USD's MEPN program and realized you didn't get in--sorry

    I am applying this year, but am concerned because my GRE scores low. Do you know how much influence that has. My GPA and everything else is great, but i'm a little nervous. Do you know why you were turned down?

    Hi AllisonHillary. I recently applied to the MEPN program at USD. I just read your post about not being accepted last year--so sorry

    I was wondering if you could tell me what your academic profile was like. My undergrad GPA is around 3.2 and my pre-requisite GPA is a little higher. But my GRE scores are not good at all.

    Do you know why you were not accepted? I'm really nervous!!!

    Anything you can tell me would be really helpful.

    Thank you!

    Gigipgigip,

    I applied to USD last year (it was my 1st choice), was asked to interview, and then was waitlisted but did not get in. My stats were as follows: 3.2 undergrad gpa, pre-req gpa somewhere in the 3.4 range, GRE Math 680/English 490. Hope that helps. If you get an interview, make sure you prep well on the topics they give you and make sure you know why you want to go into nursing, as those are the only things they concentrate on in the interview. Good luck!

    PS I am now at CSULA; if you don't get in at USD, someone will take you :-)
