    Because my bsn gpa is a 3.5 but my overall is only a 3.0 and I have heard they always have so many applicants. I am also applying to usc in columbia. I am from anderson sc. My first two years of college I was distracted to say the least and did not do as well as I could have. I really want to get in.

    I am worried for the same reasons. Overall 3.3. BSN 3.97. 8 years experience ER/ICU/Nursing Management. The number of applicants they receive worries me. Plus, the essay question was vague. My essay was about 5-6 pages long. Hope I did well enough on it.

    my gpa is very similar also....3.3 overall, 3.7 nursing. i interviewed with U of Missouri last friday. i initially felt very good about the interview. but as the days pass, waiting for "the letter" i feel more and more pessimistic. i had a bangin' essay, but otherwise feel very mediocre. le sigh. :/

    Wow ...if your essay was 6 pages then I defiantly did not get in. I didn't realize it needed to be so long.I wrote exactly what I wanted with one page. Oh we'll. I guess I need to retake a few of my pre reqs to get my gpa up.

    bkennedy~ i wouldnt worry about the essay length. one school i applied to wanted a 5-6 page SINGLE SPACED essay, others wanted a 500 word essay....its just all in what they ask for.

    bkennedy- I also wrote what I needed in one page. I have 3 friends that got in this past spring. They all wrote similar lengths, but do have high gpa's. I am ready to hear regardless the outcome. Good luck to you all.

    this wait is KILLING ME!!! they said two-three weeks before letters would be sent out. im hoping they were over estimating. i wish they would just send out a rejection letter if thats what its going to be! they have to know right away if youre out right????

    bkennedy...I wouldn't worry about the essay length either. I'm not saying it should have been 6 pages. It just needed to be at least 350 words, so you should be good. I tend to over to things at times. Its really a weakness of mine....stresses me out

    laurabs24, it's killing me too!! I emailed them and they said letters will be sent by 4/15 and we should received them by the next week. I asked specifically if it would be US Postal or email. Answer: US Postal.....seriously in this day and age??? Lol
