I didn't get in

  1. I got email stating that because of the overwhelming amount of applicants, I unfortunately wasn't accepted. I applied to only one BSN program, because it is my preferred choice. I am a bit bombed about it, but I plan to reapply for the fall term. It is good to know that the only reason I wasn't accepted was because I had a prerequisite in progress. And because of the ton of qualified applicants, they were forced to narrow it down strict qualifications. I plan to take the last two general ed. classes during the spring while I wait.

    Good luck everyone! And congratulations to those of you that were accepted for the spring 2018 semester.

    It's really a good idea to apply to more than one program.

    Agreed. This school may be your preferred choice, but you mention that it gets a lot of applicants. Not trying to be negative, but what if you apply a second time and still don't get in?

    What school did you apply to if you don't mind me asking and what was your accumulative GPA and prereq GPA?

    Being ea h school requires you to take their specific gen ed. classes prior to applying, it was quite difficult to accomplish that being enrolled as full-time student at another university. After spring I'll be done with all of my prerequisites and gen ed. classes for university I originally applied too. My plan is to then enroll at another university over the summer to their gen ed. classes and then apply to them as well for the fall.

    Well I'm sorry you didn't get in. Don't listen to the other people on here. I know exactly how you feel. There is one college I have my mind set on for numerous reasons like you. There is a lot of factors that goes into college choice like cost, location, requirements etc. Just finish your prereqs and try and do as well as possible and then reapply. I'm sure you'll get in the second time. Good luck (:

    People aren't giving this advice from a place of negativity, and we're all fully aware that there is a lot that goes into selecting a school. Unfortunately, many of us just know from experience that placing all of your nursing school admissions eggs into one basket sometimes doesn't end well. Back-up plans are important.

    I totally get it so I wasn't offend by any means. I just know it is more to it then just simply applying to programs each school require something different. As stated above, I have plan in placed and hopefully I'll be accepted for either programs for the fall.

    Great advice- because none of us with decades of experience who have BEEN THROUGH the nursing school admissions process (some of us from both sides) would have any useful advice to offer OP. (She said sarcastically)

    What I was saying is if you really want to get into one program it's not the end of the world if you don't get in the first time around. As dreamer05 stated she (or he) has a plan and she plans on applying to more than one program the second time she applies to the program she really wants to get into just in case she gets rejected the second time. My cousin has 15 years of experience working as a nurse and I talked to her about this. If you don't get into the program you want the first time is it really that bad to take a semester or two off school and work as a CNA, volunteer at hospitals, go over and review your anatomy and physiology, etc.?
