    Deadline is fast approaching then the real nail biting starts. My index score is a 62.3 if I can't make it in with that I will feel like giving up for sure. Last semester kicked my butt with AP II, Micro, as statistics. This semester is pretty light for me so far anyway. I am taking Nutrition, and Psychology. What courses is everyone else doing this semester, or are you taking time off before nursing school?

    Hi Sheri, I am sure it is hard to be playing the waiting game again. I wish you luck this go around.

    Nikki, does SW save a spot for you to return too, or do you have to re apply? Just wondering how that works.
    I will have to take a placement exam (Foundations and Dosages HESI) more than likely when the new class takes them at the end of this semester. The placement exam dictates whether I continue on where I failed or if I have to start from the very beginning (Foundations).

    I also have applied for the fall 2012 Nursing Program, and would like to find out if I have done everything correctly regarding the admission process. I believe my index score is 64.2, and was wondering what everyone else had scored.

    The deadline to apply is February 1, 2012. How many are applying? I thought I would start a thread so we can all wait together, and get to know each other. I finished my special application today and will turn it in tomorrow at the start of the spring semester. Good luck to everyone!

    Does anyone know how to tell if all the admissions criteria have been completed, and you are in the running for the 2012 Fall Nursing School? The Admissions lady is not much help, and is rude as hell also. It is hard as hell getting a straight answer from anyone at Southwest.

    I called a few days before the deadline to verify my application was complete. It is my understanding if we were missing anything in our file there would have been a list stating what was missing in the letter we received. So if you didn't have an additional sheet of paper with your certified letter, then your application is complete. It will be a long wait until April.

    I am getting nervous myself. I have not even added up to see what my index score is. I am also taking Nutrition and Psychology this semester along with Philosophy. I am really enjoying the classes. You had a big load with AP, Micro and Statistics. I do not know how you did it.

    I don't know how I didn't it either, I feel stress free this semester. I am really enjoying the nutrition class as well.

    Hi Sheri. It is understood that the Fall program is a little less competitive since you will be taking classes during the day. Also, I know the chosen index scores for the Fall program are slightly lower than the index scores of applicatants in the Spring. Do you know your index score at this time? If so, do you mind sharing it with us? If I remember correctly, you applied for the Spring program and did not get accepted. If that is the case, I honestly don't see you having any problems being accepted this time around. Good luck to you!!

    I am guessing about a month and a half more of waiting.For now it isn't always on my mind but I have a feeling the closer April gets the more impatient I will become.
