Thank you both for your advice, I really appreciate it! I will look into those areas (if I get accepted). How has the nursing school application process been for you all? I've applied to 3 schools, all of which denied me for my undergrad GPA (2.8). It's been such a frustrating process, especially since EVERY school has such different requirements. I'm really counting on DSON being the one!!

Anxiously awaiting to hear back regarding if I was accepted or not. From the research, I have done (mainly on allnurses) there isn't a clear correlation between students stats and being accepted. I am curious to know how much emphasis DSON puts on personal statements? Can the personal statement make or break you, etc. Does anyone have any information regarding the personal statement and how much weight it holds during the admissions process?

I've had a hard time finding information on this topic, as well. My gut tells me— given how short the essay was and how vague the prompt was— that it probably doesn't hold nearly as much weight as the other parts of the application.

Hi Everyone! 

I also applied for the July start at DCN. I just got an email saying I was invited to interview so I am super excited! Hoping for the best for you all!

I received a notification of waitlist this morning. Has anyone else received an alternate email? I'm confused on this as it said they can't give specific information on the alternate list.

I have not received any emails yet. I believe the alternate list is similar to a waitlist. If they have space after everyone who was offered a spot in one of the cohorts then they will start offering spots to those on the alternate list. I've also seen in previous year threads that a lot of people who were on the alternate list were offered a spot in the following cohort which I believe would be this October.

I also got an email saying I'm an alternate. Little bummed, but honestly the October start works better for me anyways. They didn't say what number on the waitlist I am, so I'm going to call and see if they can give me a better idea of my chances. Congrats to those who got it!

Hey guys! I withdrew my application a few days ago. I may have to get surgery (nothing major) and didnt want to take up a spot for someone who knew they could make the July start. I wish you all so much luck! I plan to apply for the October or January start 🙂

Hello!

I received an email that I was an alternate as well. Kinda bummed, since I will be coming from Arizona and would want ample time to get myself set up in Denver. Does anyone know how many people they take per start date?
