Fresno State BSN entry - page 4

Hi all, I was interested in applying to the Fresno State BSN program for spring 2010 but am unsure if my GPA makes the cut. I don't want to blow the extra $50-60 on a school I wouldn't get in to... Read More

    well your stats are very impressive...i only applied at fresno, so if i don't get in i have to wait til next semester. did fresno give you a certain day to tell them if you were going to accept?? i'm just going crazy, my pre req gpa was a 3.7 and i haven't heard anything, so i've been major stressing.

    sfsu would be so great to go there, but it is expensive.

    thanks, your stat is very good. anyway, i had to turn it in by last week of june. according to the admission dept. they go down the list of individuals who were accepted...maybe they go by the first letter of your alphabet (just a theory). i hope you get in.

    i haven't decided. i'm kind of having a tough time deciding between fresno and chico. btw, how does fresno expect one to take those four upper division courses in addition to five nursing classes!?! can somebody please make sense of this? i'm starting to freak out!

    lol...yea i know, but to be full time you need 12 units and i think most of the program you'll only have 9-10 units of nursing classes. i've already taken 2 of the upper division classes and will be taking the other two this fall since i didn't get in.

    take hs161...its online, but dont take it with professor ***** *******...he's not that great of an online instructor and its really boring, but an easy class. i got a b without trying.

    also cdds139...its also online...i loved this class. it's about deaf culture. natalie berrett is the instructor and she is very good.

    well, if you choose to go to fresno...good luck choosing!!!

    hey, i heard they are not taking any new student (transfers student) for spring (due to budget issues). so, as long as you attend fresno or any csu's for fall 2009, you will have limited pool of people to compete with in the spring. good luck!

    Hi everybody(im new here),
    Right now I'm a pre-nursing major at Fresno State working on my Pre-Reqs.If everything works out I plan on applying for the program in Spring 2011.Anyways enough about me.I got a question about the GPA needed to get into the program and the number of people who get accepted per semester.Is it as hard as I hear? I'm so scared that I'm thinking about switching majors.If I can get any info that would be a big help.thanks in advance

    Hello! Good luck with your prereqs. If you wanna get into Fresno you gotta do good on them cuz that's all they look at. So your English, Comm, Philosophy, Stats, Micro, Anatomy, Physio and I think that's it. Try to get A's. I have one C, 3.7 GPA in prereqs and didn't get it. But just barely missed it. If you're just starting prereqs give it a try and your all. The classes aren't that bad. I really liked the science ones. I think they accept 60 people each semester. I don't really know how hard it is because I'm not there yet, but I'm sure it is intense, but if you start learning to study well now, by then you should be able the get thru it. Hope this helped and again GOOD LUCK with the prereqs.
