Charity fall 2011 aplicants

U.S.A. Louisiana


Hi guys I applied to charity for the fall of next year and am waiting on the letter. i am so nervous i dont know what am gonna do if i dont get in. I have thought about other choices like LSU and OLOL EJ . I really want to go to charity but competition is high. I have a bachelors degree so i know they give 10 extra points i have overall gpa of 3.5 and on the nursing curriculum a 3.4. I got a 78 on the teas which is not that great. i have all the courses except a&p 2 and micro which am taking next semester. anyone who is in the program can tell me if they know people like me by chance that didnt have all the classes completed? my head cant stop thinking about this. please help this is a little depressing

so the lady told you that they calculated the score wrong? omg I am so going there tomorrow!!!! i called today but i got a voicemail am sure alot of people were calling. omg i pray to god that seats become available. hope hope

No, she didn't say that they calculated it wrong, but the score she gave me is different from what I calculated myself. I just sent another email and broke it down the way I calculated it. I asked her to please tell me what she has, and where it differs from what I have. It's pretty cut and dry, so I don't know how I would have made a mistake. Hopefully she will be able to get back to me tomorrow; I'll keep you posted.

yea well let me know am going there tomorrow!!!

K, let me know what they tell you. Good luck

(The admissions committee is not infallible. In fact, my girlfriend and I had the exact same resume. The same classes, grades (she had one more A than me), same profile score (except I scored two points higher on the teas) and I was accepted and she was denied. The two of us went down there the very next day to speak to someone. While we were sitting in the office she readded her profile sheet. Sure enough a mistake was made by the committee and my friend was accepted right then and there. Mistakes are NOT uncommon. Speak to them in person. Let them put a face to the name on the application. It makes a difference. Good luck.

I'm sorry to hear about this. :( Believe me, ladies, I know how you feel. I had my hopes pinned on LSU's CARE program this past summer, but I was denied from there. It sucks. I really hope you guys can get some answers tommorrow. Good Luck!

thank you guys for the support!!

@fairandbalanced omg really? you made me feel so much better by telling me that i hope the same happens with me. I think they didnt add the 10 points bc i have a bachelors degree. omg please guys pray for me tomorrow!!!! ;-)

@bundo yea it sucks to be denied big time. I have All As and a few Bs in my transcript and to be denied after studying so much hurts. if tomorrow i go and they still say am not accepted then..Lsu...but if i dont get in there either then i will totatlly be depressed more then now.


Are you still in the LPN program ? I din't think they would let you apply to RN when you are in LPN when i was interested in the LPN program last year i was told that i had to decide between one or the other because once your in LPN you have to stay all the way through. I don't know it sounded kinda strange to me.

I'm not in the LPN program. I'm at DCC, but I'm just taking general ed. courses.

My score was calculated wrong, YAYYYYY!!!! They had me at a 40, but I really have a 50. I gave myself 10 points for being enrolled in A&P II, but only got 5 b/c I am not enrolled in the lab (it's next to impossible to get into a lab on the northshore campus). 50 is still not enough to make the cut, BUT I am at the top of the alternate list. So (fingers crossed), I'm not completely out for the Fall 2011. Good luck Kubana, I hope that your score was wrong too. Let me know what they tell you.

Hi all,

I also applied to Charity for fall 2011 and got my denial letter yesterday! I was shocked because I calculated my profile score and thought for sure I'd get in. I made an 83 on the TEAS and have all the prereqs done including general ed except a&p2. Does anyone have the email address to the admission dept because I'd like to appeal this decison...I forgot to mention I'm a senior at Tulane University,graduating in may 2011, which should say something about my quality as a student. I'm so disappointed...:(


What is your profile score? The cut off was 55.
