I recently applied for the Spring 2012 term @ U of M. The deadline to apply was October 30. Has anyone received an acceptance letter yet? Or any news at all? It is driving me insane waiting on the mailman everyday.

I'm so sorry to hear that. I was too shocked to cry yesterday, so today after my mom and fiance told me it was okay to cry, I just let it all out. It's pretty heart breaking. I am going to call and find out where I am on the wait list and try and figure out what to do next. I am done with all my pre-reqs...
My fiance started medical school this semester at UT after being wait listed three times. I can't imagine waiting that long to start school. I'm going to try to get my application into Baptist next week, just to see what happens.
Its upsetting because my advisor stressed to me that a 3.0 was almost 100% guaranteed acceptance, but I guess she was wrong!
Are you going to stay at Memphis? If you don't mind me asking, are you a transfer student? I transfered to U of M this semester from southwest.
Yeah I'm going to stay at Memphis but this is my second time being rejecting from a nursing program and I've just lost my heart for it. I'm tired of taking gen ed and I'm ready to take some classes in things I'm interested in. I transferred as well from Union University. I also had a 3.0 and was told I would have no problem getting in. I was extremely surprised.
I don't know if you live in Memphis, but the university's nursing program had their budget cut significantly. They asked over half the nursing professors to retire, in order to save money. According to admissions, they had the highest volume of applicants they have ever had this term, and weren't able to accept over half the total number of students they normally do. No one told any of the nursing applicants this was going on. I was very high on the wait list. Therefore, if there were not a budget cut, I would have been accepted without question.
