Hello, I thought I'd make this thread for the new application group... even though it's a bit late since we have to all apply soon! Anyway! I want to apply for the Fall 2012 term but I had... Read More

    Every time I see this thread pop up my heart jumps! Why is is that the closer we get, the harder it is to wait? I have spring break this week too, so I don't even have school to distract me. I may be clinically insane by the end of the month! I have my fingers crossed for us all!

    Are you guys waiting to hear from other schools too? What is everyone's first choice?

    csula is my first since sdsu is out of the picture for me (I applied for their spring 2013 cohort), and got rejected from csulb lol i'm not surprised at all... still waiting on SFSU. what about you?

    CSULA is my first choice too! It's the only BSN program I applied to. I applied to PCC and GCC on a lark, but since they are both lottery, I don't really expect anything from them. I applied to LA county for spring and didn't get in because they said A&P had to be specifically anatomy one term and physio the next, but mine are A&P I and II. I was really disappointed, but after that I decided to go for CSULA. So I'm hoping that in the long run I'll be glad I didn't get in to county

    Haha, phoenix all this positive energy coming from you makes me feel like your getting to get accepted also so do not worry. As for my backup school, LA county is my only one.

    Thanks Dark! I hope we all get in. I'm really pulling for you, I like your spunkiness You remind me of me, haha.

    What about you Spiffy? Your stats are great so I'm sure you'll have your pick of schools, which do you think you'll choose?

    The spiffster has great scores as well but I think CSULB is her top chioce!
    kosmic: I sure hope your right! *crosses fingers*

    Sirena: Thanks! I am hoping for CSULB but if it doesn't happen, it doesn't the least I will get is an alternate, which is highly likely but who knows! Maybe people will drop out!

    I think even being an alternate gives you a pretty good chance. From what I've read, it seems like a lot of schools can get pretty far down their alternate list. I think you'll get in!

    The Darkster is right, CSULB would be my first choice. But after reading about how the 2 year program is really stressful, I might consider SDSU as my first choice because its 2.5 years and you get your summers. Its only a semester longer too! CSU Sacramento is 2 years and you get your summers! I am just at a great toss up, but CSULA isn't on the tops for me so hopefully that gets a space open for someone if I'm accepted :P Nor is SFSU or CSUSB

    hahaha @spiffy
    Sirena: I hope your right as well! You and kosmic are on a roll tonight

    well if spiffy drops out from CSULB, then that bumps me up!

    Choose whatever program works best for you. If you want out quick but want your summers then CSULB might not be fore you.
    If you dont mind losing your life for a few years then CSULB may be for you...

    I don't think I would mind it because it's something I'm really motivated to do yaknow? It's different when you're taking classes you're not passionate for, those are the hardest for me to get through. If you don't make it to CSULB or CSULA I still think you have a good chance for CSUSB since the GPA is for the 9 courses and not overall, and since you have a good enough TEAS score

    I hope it make into one of the BSN programs! My score sucks to much to be picky, but I hope that I get into one!
    If not, ADN are backups

    And I agree with you, if you want to do this, then take the best route possible for yourself.
    Since I am in the field and see it weekly, I know this is what I want to do.
    You just do what you gotta do!

    Yeah, no matter what I know you'll be a great nurse one day. We will all get to that point someday, whether it be in 2-3 years or 10 years
