I am a nervous wreck waiting on whether or not I am accepted to my school's nursing program for this fall 2013, and thought that starting this thread may be able to keep myself and others company......:nailbiting:....Please feel... Read More

    kschafer I understand the new email ding on your phone
    That is a really quick turn around for decision however, you should feel fortunate.
    The program I am waiting to hear from, and am most optimistic about, had a deadline of Dec. 1. The best they could tell me was that I would know by April. (5 months are you kidding me?!?) However, I do know for the past Spring cohort they were notified in about a 7 week period. I just passed the 8 week mark....so I keep thinking and hoping for any day now...any day now!

    I'm currently taking other classes so my mind has been focused on those, but anytime I get a break and a chance to just think the letter comes up. I just try to stay positive.

    UGH- I know this feeling! I've applied for an ABSN in Indianapolis, the deadline to apply is March and they don't let us know until May. It's torturing me, but I'll hopefully be able to forget about it in the meantime. The program ONLY looks at GPA so I've seen people on here say they had a 3.8 something and almost didn't get in! My application GPA was a 3.79 for the prerequisites and I feel like it's strong, but I know if enough other people come along with a 4.0, 3.9, and 3.8 I may not make the cut!

    Hope you're all managing to stay positive!! :/

    I also do not get a reply until the first week of April and to somewhat relax, I am now working two jobs, this way I have a lot of money saved for the program, and keep my mind busy, but thats sooo not helping. This is just torture because it is all I can think about......I'm so happy you guys are replying because no-one can understand the dedication and passion and obsession that I have with being a nurse than those who share the same feeling and this is a great way to share that since you guys won't get tired of listening lol.

    Everytime I think of accpetance/rejection letters going out, my stomach turns into knots. I got an 88.7 on my TEAS V, OVerall GPA is a 3.72, competitive GPA 3.5. IVe applied to 2 schools, one is a BSN program, the other ADN. BSN cut-off is Jan 31st, ADN May 23rd I think. I have no idea when interviews will be given, if I am selected for one. I am going nuts nuts nuts. Frankly, if I dont get in I dont know how much longer I am willing to wait/try. I feel like this process has been taking FOREVER. '

    Best of luck to everyone!

    What type of program are you applying to where you can't specify when you want to start? I am just wondering not bashing the program. That's a first for me. I am applying for the fall and my deadline for being notified is the same as your deadline (March 1) financial aid notification will still take a while though...
    That's the way the community college set up their admissions to their nursing program. There are 128 seats and admissions are done once a year. They split the 128 seats into 64 for the Fall cohort and 64 for the Spring. You have no control over which cohort you're assigned to. It's a points-based admissions system, no waiting list. In-district students get an extra 5 points for being residents to prevent out-of-district applicants from bumping out qualified applicants who pay taxes in-district. There are usually 350+ applications for those 128 seats, so it's very competitive.

    Wow I learned something new today. Obviously, I didn't apply to a community college, but thanks for the information. I don't think I could go through that.;/

    I'm also going to be in the waiting boat. Our app deadlines are April 1 and letters don't get sent out until probably the first week of June. I'm only applying to one ASN program, if I don't get it I will try again in the fall for Spring 2014 but really hope I don't have to do that! My GPA is 4.0 and I'm finishing the last of my pre req's currently.

    Waiting waiting waiting! I applied for the Summer 2013 program and should hear back in the next month. I had to take the NLN (98%) and my GPA is currently a 3.75. Hopeful, but I know there are a limited number of seats available. Yikes! I don't know what I'll do if I don't get in. My husband left in May and I am raising 4 kids. I need this more than I need anything so we can not only survive, but thrive as a family!

    Best of luck to you all!!!!

    You would think that raising 6 kids and taking Pathophysiology, while working 20 hours a week would keep my mind off of rejection/acceptance....but it doesn't.
