Oh my god.
This is my best day ever
I will start J1 for this coming spring semester.
I am sad that many of good friends got wait list.
I really hope I can start J1 with them and others who are wait listed now.
Some people might wonder who are quality to accept
In nursing school
, which I still don't know yet.
But I can give my information if that helps.
I was a transfer student.
I only attended in UTA one year and I am having a semester off now since i took all classes including pre nursing.
I took all pre nursing course in UTA (patho, pharm, intro) 2 upper division elective classes (medical term and women's health), and one lower division class.(technic writing)
I also took a language class for each semester just for fun.
I took all my science (micro, A&P 1and 2, chem) and other prerequisite classes in Community college.
My science GPA is 3.8
And overall GPA is 3.5 including all my pre nursing courses when I applied to nursing school, and I got accepted in.
One of considerations is they are preferred students who took science courses in UTA. That is true. Getting good grade University is harder than in Community college.
But in my opinion, if you have a good grade, it does not matter whether you took science classes in UTA or community college.
I know many friends have 3.5 GPA and they are all wait list.
I highly recommend people to have higher than 3.5 GPA since I see so many friends are wait list with 3.5 GPA.
I don't know how I got accepted because I have 3.5GPA as well. Or I am guessing they might gave me some exemption since I finished all my pre nursig classes when I was applying. But I would say keep your science GPA high and don't drop down your overall to below 3.6 to be in a safe zone.
I was scared if I would not accept in because my overall is 3.5 as well, but I guess I was lucky.
Anyway, I wish everyone luck who are accepted in nursing school and also who are wait list !!!!! I hope we will meet in the same class together eventually !!! I really hope !!
