University of Calgary Nursing Transfer January 2017 - page 8

I applied to the U of C Winter 2017 program! I took the Athabasca University A/P course and haven't done well in it due to some family health issues that have taken most of my time. It is strange for... Read More

    Thank you Monde!

    I actually just checked (for the second time this morning) and it changed from a green circle to the check mark! I am over the moon as this is my second year applying! I am anxious to receive more information from the department and be able to register for classes once my deposit has been processed!

    For everyone who is still waiting, I had called a few times and got different answers as to when my application would be reviewed. One person in the admissions office told me 2-4 weeks and then another told me its usually 4-6 weeks after your transcripts and application have been finalized. Today is 4 weeks on the dot to when my transcripts got sorted out, so for people who are still waiting, keep that in mind as to when your application became complete and showed the green circle.

    Good luck to everyone!

    Congrats kswain8, I am so happy for you. Can we know your GPA also which route did you apply for and did you do another course to increase your GPA for your second application?

    I applied to the degree holder route and have a 3.63 GPA.

    I think that the admissions office is still working through the applications of those who got their transcripts in leading up to September 30, so I assume that once they have filtered through those and sent out acceptances to anyone above a 3.6 they will then start lowering the GPA based on the amount of spots left.

    I spent the last year taking a bunch of courses (I think I took 6) to upgrade my GPA trying to get it as high as I could manage while also working full time. Last year when I applied I had a 3.4.

    I forget, are you in or waiting for them to give you the green check?

    I'm in, but nervous. And excited. And terrified. I was last in a classroom in 2004.

    @jlindsay @redcoat52 just hang in there. I am very positive for you. Most times, the GPA gets lowered. It is crazy waiting and waiting. It affects a lot of plans too but don't be weary. About 49 seats are left as at this morning. I wish you the very best and hope to hear the good news from you soon.
