Applied & now Waiting...

Posted

I applied to five nursing programs.

I have a 3.7-3.8 GPA.

I have work experience of over 600 hours.

What are my odds of getting in? I dislike having to wait until beginning April to know and then know for sure in May/June. This process takes a long time.

Give me encouragement :) Thanks for any responses.

I don't think anyone here can tell you your chances of getting in. We don't know where you're applying, how you stack up against other students applying, the criteria other nursing programs base their admissions on, etc.

Yeah I agree! I mean you've already sent in your applications, so you might as well wait and see what your odds are from the admissions people themselves! Waiting sucks but no one here can tell you if you'll get in.

I can tell you that your odds of getting into even one of those five is a whole lot better than if you'd never applied in the first place. Beyond that, my crystal ball of prognostication is broken...

You have done your part to get selected and from here on out, the best things you can do are very simple: do not get any DUI arrests, do not take any drugs that you do not have a prescription for (and include marijuana in that even if you do have a prescription for it), and conduct yourself in a generally respectable manner. Do not get any tickets for driving in any sort of a dangerous manner. In short, you want your "criminal" life to be hideously boring. I'm not saying you shouldn't have fun, just don't do stuff that's criminally stupid because that's the quickest way to be uninvited from a program you were selected to attend or have your application for a license be denied.

Have fun, relax, get on with life for now because there's nothing that you can do that will increase your chances of getting in. Just remember to be careful because some things will decrease your chances or have lasting ramifications even after you graduate.

Your life under a microscope begins now.

I think you have a good chance of getting in based on your gpa, how did you do on entrance exam? Because even with a good GPA failing that changes everything. My friend got into our local community college with a 3.8 gpa if that helps, it's a highly competitive school.

Great advice, thank you very much :) I love the microscope by the way. I own one.

That's great to know. I'm applying to 5 community colleges and are OCNE with OHSU. One of them requires me to take an entrance exam (HEIS A2) on April 4th. I still have time and the best thing I can do now is study for that exam.

Not sure of your odds. But just wanted to say Good Luck!

Some chools give preference to students who have done their pre-reqs at the school to which they are applying over those who are transferring credits. I don't agree with this practice, but it happens!
