I am going to finish all my prereqs this fall (2012) and apply for the fall 2013 program. From everything I have read online, it seems that there is a shortage of professors and this is why so few students are admitted. Can this be expected to change? I find it kind of ridiculous that even with a perfect score of 56, many students are not being accepted their first time due to the huge number of reapplicants. Since I am not going to be accepted the first time (my predicted score is 53.5), would it be worth it to retake classes to get a higher rank? I realize it would help, but if I do not retake any courses my score will be a 58.5 upon reapplying. Is this a high enough rank? I am planning on taking additional classes while I wait in hopes of completed the bridge program at UT. Online it says a 3.0 GPA, but is this a 3.0 in the nursing program or for the additional prereqs or what? I have many of the bridge courses already completed from dual credit highschool program, would these count? Has anyone completed this program or is currently in it?

Just want to wish all of the applicants for Fall 2013 good luck!
I'm currently a Level 2 student at CEC. I know this has been said again and again, but it would be a really good idea to start BSN classes while you're waiting to get in the program. Hope everyone is enjoying their spring.
