I know it must be awful to still be waiting, and I know I don't really have the right to comment on it, but I think we all know by now that the SON doesn't operate on our timeline. I am positive they will be sending more acceptances though. Even if they had sent all the emails, which I doubt, not everyone will accept their spot. I guess what I'm trying to say is it isn't over yet!

Spiffy:

That is so weird... I feel like you had more than enough points to get in to SD! I got accepted today but we only have until monday to respond... kind of lame. Also, the acceptance email was kind of rude... it talked about how i was accepted then there was a huge paragraph about how they don't have enough clinical spots for all the students they are taking, and by accepting the spot in the program you are agreeing to be ok with the fact that you might not graduate in 5 semesters. Not good. Probably I will not accept for that reason alone.

Yeah I had 77 when I added it up. And wow that doesn't sound good. Why would they accept more students than clinical spots? That means some students will have to take filler classes or something else in order to wait for a next semester to start clinicals. What will your final choice be? A huge part of why I wanted to go to SDSU was because it was 5 semesters, so one shorter than CSULB. But if theres a chance it will take me longer, I would might as well go to CSULB.

Didn't hear back from them yet either. I really don't think 24 is the cut off score, that is pretty high..

I am pretty sure the cut-off is lower than 24. Does anyone know about how many people were taken from the wait-list to be accepted last year? 2? 5? 10?

I am a high school senior planning to go to CSULA as pre-nursing put after reading this trend it scared me a little. What would you guys recommend for me since I want to get into the nursing program? Are the prerequisite classes difficult at CSULA? Could I transfer into amother nursing program like at CSULB?

@ jumpingfish: do not slack off in any of your classes, especially the prereq classes. Many students think the first year of college is a joke, but you can't afford to do that if you're a nursing major. Do your research and do well in your classes.

@jumpingfish21 After you finish your pre-reqs you can apply to wherever you are eligible to. Unfortunately with the budget cuts going on, your options may be a lot more limited to what we have at this point in time. My recommendation would be to make school your priority. I gave up my social life to study but trust me, once you get an acceptance letter you will know it was well worth it. If you are the type of student who values social life more than academics it might be a challenge to adjust. Being a pre-nursing major is unique in that you have to be pretty much the best of the best to get into a program. Passing with all B's won't really cut it to be honest. I also recommend you volunteer to get some extra points when you apply. :)

Hello everyone in the same boat,

I spoke with ----- today and asked regarding this matter.

She said that emails were sent out around yesterday and will be done hopefully (she emphasized) by tomorrow or end of tomorrow.

Also, I asked whether acceptance is only received by e-mail first and she said it depends, it could be sent out by e-mail and/or letter first.

And, I asked how many students can be in the program and she said 60.

Lastly, I had to get this out of her but I asked whats the average/lowest score of acceptance and she said "i don't know...i don't know..." but I just said AROUNDDD.. and she said. "maybe 22.., I can't say because whoever doesn't accept the acceptance will bump down the score..meaning if a student with 22 or 23 declined, it might lower to 20~21.

At least that's what I got from her explanation..

As much as its stressful and hard not to think about it, hang on tight.

That's all we can do.

@buddyxboi

Some people in the waiting list got a call a month or as short as 2 weeks before fall started.

When people don't attend the orientation or get back to them, they get off the list and the people in the waiting list get a call (and if those don't answer) it continues down the waiting list.

I forgot to include in my comment,

*They will send: acceptance, reject and ​ waiting list letters.
