South Alabama Accelerated BSN Spring 2010 Students

  1. I have been accepted to the accelerated BSN program at South Alabama for the spring 2010 semester, and I was just wondering if anyone else has been accepted. We could all unofficially "meet" before the semester begins and we could ask each other questions concerning the program, etc.

    BTW, I'm Jerry from Mobile, AL, and I'm looking forward to next semester!

    Hi. I have been accepted for the Spring 2010 term. I'm from New Orleans. Does anyone know of good housing options out there?

    I would say living in north Daphne or Spanish Fort would be the best option, since most of our clinicals will be in Mobile, but we'll be going to class in Fairhope. My wife and I found a town house in Daphne for $700 a month, which is really good compared to much smaller apartments. You may come out cheaper renting a house, as opposed to renting an apartment if you want more than one room. is a good website for rentals in Daphe and for Spanish Fort. Just type in the city and be sure to click on rentals, and there will be a pretty big list of rental houses, townhouses, and condos. Also http://www.southalabama-coastalaream...sp?rental=true is a good website to find rentals as well. Good luck!

    Also, here is a 1 bedroom apartment at Bay Vista, which I've heard is really nice, for $499 a month. It's in a perfect location for the program too.

    hey, do y'all mind sharing your pre-req gpas? i'm planning on applying to the program next year and i'm just wondering if my grades are competitive.

    also, did they look at any volunteer/work experience for your admission, or just your gpa?

    thanks so much!

    My prereq GPA was a 3.7, but I know a few people who got in with a lower GPA. Unfortunately, GPA is everything. The program is great though. Very strenuous, but managable. Good luck with applying and feel free to ask any questions.
