    What she told me yesterday was that they kept my file but I was not in the top 60

    Idk what that means then.. I wish they would just hurry up and call too! This is getting ridiculous!

    My understanding is that if any of the top 60 decide they no longer want to be in the program then they contact the alternate which is the first highest index score that didn't make it in.They do that until the 60 slots have been filled. Maybe they said they don't have an alternate list because it would be evey applicant that isn't the top 60.

    I'm curious what is the average lowest score to get in. My index score is 64.25, was wondering what everyone else on this board's index score is.

    Mine is 50.53 and I called the lady at admissions again today and she rechecked for me and said I was in the range.

    I pray that 62.3 is enough to get me in.
  9. by   annae2012
    Well that's only 1 point higher than me so maybe I'm not too far down the list

    The lady in the nursing department told me your either in or your not. There is no in between. She said there is no waiting list and there is no alternative list. You either get a rejection letter or you get accepted. Since your only a point behind me I feel pretty hopeful for you. I would think that she wouldn't give me false information..

    Hopefully my message will put some minds at ease. If your index score is 60 or above, you have absolutely nothing to worry about. I will go as far to say if you are as low as 57.5, there is a huge possibility you are good also.

    The only thing that may hurt a person's chance is if you did not make A's in A&P I/II and Micro. Anything less than an A takes points away from your index. All other factors simply add points to your index. I know the waiting game seems so awful and cruel but please trust me, try to calm your nerves and save that energy for when you actually start the program. You will definitely need it!!!

    Also, when the calls go out, the number will NOT be blocked. It will be from one of the secretaries in the Nursing Dept. and of course the number will be 555-....

    Again, good luck to everyone and I hope everyone's dream of being accepted for the Fall comes true.

    Thanks so much. I'm so anxious it's crazy😳 we all are. I just worry about the number of overall apps. So many people such good grades. They really should call soon.
