  1. I just wanted to start a thread for prospective students applying to UNCG's BSN program starting in Summer/Fall 2018! Has anyone else submitted their applications yet?

    I turned mine in a few weeks ago. I'm not expecting to get in as I'm not a priority student and my GPA is a 3.64, but I did score a 93.3 on my TEAS so I'm hoping they'll at least consider me.

    I also applied, but as a second-degree student. I'm nervous about hearing the decisions. Do you know many students they typically admit into the cohort?

    I'm not sure, honestly. I think it's anywhere between 100 and 120, but they also accept 20-30 priority students (which I think is quite stupid. Honestly, the only criteria I missed out on was that I'm a transfer student, so no priority for me!) I got the impression that I'm a pretty long shot with my stats, but I applied anyway. Maybe I'll get lucky.

    Ohh...I didn't know about the priority students. Do you know what the average stats are for those who are accepted? Your stats look pretty competitive to me!

    Also, do you know if they email out the decisions or do we have to wait for them to come in the mail?

    I'm pretty sure you have to wait for them to come in the mail, but I'm not positive, so I would ask your advisor. I'm honestly not sure about the average stats for last year. You can email Dr. Philip Simpson, he's my advisor and he's also the student coordinator, so he's probably be able to give you that information. I was just told that my GPA was quite low for an applicant, and that they usually see GPAs from 3.7-4.0 on average.
