    Way to go! I'm sure you'll get in! I'm taking 2 more BSN classes this summer but they won't be on record before the deadline.

    I turned in my application this Saturday eighth after I took the hesi again. I am applying with 38 points thru Methodist partnership. So nervous since they only 10 people each semester ifmnot I will go to El Centro. I also heard that next semeter they might raise the hesia2 score to 90. Good luck to everyone!

    Does anyone know if we'll have any type of correspondence with the school other than waiting for the October letter? As in....do they notify us that they have received and processed our packets?

    I don't think they do do. You only get the approval or denial letter

    Does anyone know what information you have to submit in with the five year waiver? I got approved and submitted the approval letter but I read on another post that someone got denied because they didn't sign their letter of request? Can someone clarify?

    How many points did you apply with?
  8. by   Chrissyb513
    I applied with 40 points. I'm just getting anxious now, I've applied for El Centro/Northlake, UTA and Grayson for next spring. I got wait listed this fall for Grayson, but I'm still on the list.

    Hello. I graduated from this program in May. Yes, they are in a warning status. I do think their scores will improve with all the changes they are implemented. It is a good program. I passed NCLEX first try last week.

    Yes my 5 year waiver was approved. I also applied in July.

    What exactly did u turn in for ur waiver? Was it just the letter of approval they sent?
  12. by   collegegirl972
    I sent in a 3 page letter explaining how I use a/p 1, a/p 2, and microbiology at work regularly and also had my manager send a letter supporting my claims. I got my bachelor's degree in 2007 so most of my core classes are pretty old. I currently work as a diagnostic medical sonographer. They send you an approval letter when the process is complete and that's what I turned in. It took about 6 weeks for the waiver and degree plan audit to be completed.

    I mean in ur packet? I got my waiver approved too but were we only suppose to include the waiver approval letter in the packet? That's what I sent. I'm asking cause I read on another post that u had to send ur actual letter that u submitted asking for a waiver but I don't think so, I think it's only the one they send u back that u have to include in the packet.
