    Hi! I am considering it. Would anyone mind sharing their credentials (GPA, experience, HESI score)?

    Ponte1979--

    I'm sorry I did not see your response earlier. I am hoping to turn in my completed application tomorrow. I have an undergraduate degree in Math with a 3.8 GPA and A's in all but one of my pre-reqs. I did well on the HESI with a 94.8 composite although A&P was my lowest section with an 84. I don't really have any experience. I have volunteered at a pediatrician's office for a few months but that is the only medical related thing I have done (beside having 4 kids lol).

    I know GMU is very competitive and I'm very nervous. Good luck if you decide to apply!

    Those are great GPAs and scores!! I'm sure you're application will be competitive!

    Mine are not as good. GMU is kind of a wish and a prayer for me :-) BA in Psychology, 3.48. All A's in my pre-reqs except for two. I also got an 84 on A & P scection of HESI. Received 100s and 90s in everything else except for implications and understanding. I HATE those sorts of questions! What does the writer want you to get from this? I answer as to what I derived from it, and then you tell me I'm wrong...UGGG!
    I do have a Masters degree in Health Care Management, 3.9 GPA, an internship in the OR, and some medical office experience. I'm hoping this will compensate a bit for grades and score?

    Good luck to you!

    Anyone else still waiting for their decision letter? I have major anxiety because my back-up plan is VCU and they start on 5/14!

    My GMU letter came yesterday and the nursing school one came today!! I can hardly believe it. I think they send them out in batches so don't worry yet.

    Congrats all! I received my admission letter last week as well!

    Does anyone know on which campus our classes (and clinicals) will be held? I hope it'll only be at Fairfax and not at Prince William.

    Congratulations to everyone who got in!!!! I got my acceptance letter for the nursing program on April 4th and got the regular Mason acceptance letter the next day. I nearly died from excitement since Mason was my first choice! I wasn't sure I'd get in, after reading a few posts on various forums (and here on allnurses) where people posted their scores and experience... I was afraid my scores wouldn't be competitive enough. For anyone who's curious, these were my scores:

    Undergraduate GPA: 3.4 (BS in Biology)

    Cumulative HESI score: 95.13%
    A&P section of HESI: 96%

    Prerequisites: A's in all but Microbiology lecture where I got a B (I'm currently finishing up Nutrition and Stat 250 this semester so they didn't have those grades at the time)

    Volunteer/Work Experience: I spent a few weeks volunteering with a surgical team that provided free cleft palate repairs in the Philippines two years ago. I restocked supplies/transported patients/assisted nurses in the recovery room. As far as work goes, I currently work with kids but I don't think that really helped or hurt my application.

    Anyways, there it is. I'm so excited to start school. And hugs to anyone who didn't get in, I know how badly a lot of people wanted to get into this program.

    From what I understand classes will be held at the Fairfax campus, however, clinicals will be at various teaching hospitals (mostly INOVA) across northern Virginia. I guess there were a lot less applicants this year which is why we are hearing back so quickly!

    Does anyone know someone who has been through the program? How soon before the start of the semester do you think we'll get an actual schedule? I'm so excited I can hardly stand it. I have have four kids and tons of planning to do before August!
