@Mochachild & McKinneyMom-
Count me in!!
I am going to reapply for AP BSN Spring 2012. Even though my advisor is stating my chances for unpartnered and without retaking a couple class (which I am in the Fall) is tough and she says I stand a higher chance in Fall 2012 (just really do not want to have to wait that long).
I am going to continue taking Path (May 16th) and Pharm (Sept 12) and retake Micro and A&P2. I'll start Micro in June and A&P2 in Aug. It's a tough schedule but i am determined to do whatever is needed to increase my chances!
As of now I have a 3.5 science GPA and 3.3 overall but hoping to increase that for Spring application since my Technical Writing and Intro (made As) was not factored in for Fall application.
Do you mind me asking you guys what your GPAs are? Just trying to see how far I am off from others. I am not sure that they are putting a lot of focus on 2nd degrees like I thought they did (I have BA from UTA 2002) because seems like being partnered is the real key. I honestly do not want to have to get a job with my family and husband's work schedule I am able to stay home and want to solely focus on my studies. Are either of you employed at a partnering hospital?
After talking with my advisor last week (following my rejection letter for fall '11) I was shocked to learn nearly 650 applicants applied and 70 were accepted (ONLY 12 slots for unpartnered!!)
That is crazy!!
@McKinneyMom..I also have 3 young boys (6, 4, and 17 months)
They keep me busy! Are you in Intro now? There are a couple moms with boys in my class? How was Micro? I'm a little nervous since it's been 10 years since I took this class (made a B but must get an A this time).
I wish all of you the best of luck and look forward to sharing our thoughts over the Fall...hoping we can all start in January!!
