Devastated - page 2

I got my denial letter for the fall 2007 program. I don't get it, I have a 4.0 GPA, and got a 79.45% on the TEAS test. I also do supplemental instruction for BIO students (I was recommended for the... Read More

    How many students applied for how many slots?
  2. by   Nurse Allison
    500 applied/50 slots, so I know I'm not alone in my misery. From what I understand there is a shortage of teachers. That's why so few get in.

    There you go. Pick yourself up and move on. It is definitly not the end of the world. You could always start working on pre-requisites for the BSN if that is in any way a goal for you.

    Good luck!!!

    Thank you for all of your kind words and advice. I'm feeling better, I realize it's not the end of the world. I have scheduled a meeting with the nursing advisor for Thursday. Hopefully I'll have a better understanding as to why I didnt get in. In the meantime, I'm going to keep plugging away. Big test on Thursday on the CNS. I'm having such a hard time grasping the different functions/parts of the brain.

    I am in the same situation... I think I will do what texas angel said. This will almost be a plus... b/c that will mean that there are fewer courses to complete before moving on to the BSN program. This makes the rejection a little less dreadful for me. :spin:
    p.s. I am supposed to hear by May 2; quite a wait.

But it paid off and got an acceptance for Fall 2007...dont EVER give up..keep going....I will keep you in my thoughts..keep us posted..

    I'm sorry. I don't think I got in this year either. I haven't got any official denial yet, but all the people accepted know so I'm pretty sure my denial is on its way. I'm a bit different though, I have ALL my courses completed, even the ones for the BSN, I have nothing left to take other than the actual nursing courses, so that means I get to wait another year of doing absolutely nothing! I have a 3.4 though. I have busted my butt working full time so I can pay for school and attending school full time for the past 3 years (1 year for medical assisting, silly me thought that would help, 2 for pre-reqs) only to get rejected. I never work less than 50 hours a week (very demanding job) and last fall semester I was taking 17 credits including 2 sciences with labs. Ended up with 4 A's and 1 B. The summer session I took 14 hours and ended up with 2 A's and 2 B's. I thought I was doing good considering the circumstances, but apparantly B's in history really matter. Sorry went off subject on a mini rant there, but I know how you feel. I think its ridiculous to have to retake B's and I dont really have the money or time for it, but looks like I won't get in without a perfect 4.0. I'm sorry you didn't get in with your perfect 4.0. That must sting even worse. I bet you will be right in though after you finish your sciences! Best of luck to you!

    I'm sorry you didn't get in That sucks.

    I have a feeling it might have been because you didn't have all your pre-reqs done. I know my school won't even consider your application until you have at least 9 points from your pre-reqs (points are given based on the grade you got in each class: A=4, B=3, etc.). And of course, the more points you have over 9, the better it is for you.

    I'd definitely talk to your advisor--hopefully they can figure out what happened and help you map a plan of attack to ensure you do get in next time.
    I agree with this post..my school did all admissions on a point system, and someone with a 4.0 that had all their pre-reqs done will get in over someone who didn't.

    The reason is that the fewer non-nursing classes you have to take with the program, the higher the graduation rate from the program...to them, it's all about the numbers, so they try to let those in who have the greatest chance of success.
