Emory 2021 BSN transfer

Posted
by uponyk uponyk (New) New Student

Hello! I am currently an undergrad student at Texas, majoring in pre nursing.

I submitted my application to Emory's nursing program for 2021, and had so many question regarding the GER requirement, transfer equivalency, AP scores, etc.

My school does not offer an associate's degree, so I'm a bit confused on how the credit transferring works. Please let me know if anyone can offer some insight!

Thank you so much 🙂

I heard Emory transfer student is very hard to get into. May I ask how much you got on the TEAS and your GPA if you don't mind me asking ?

Hey! I applied for the priority deadline that was this past August 1st, and got waitlisted. 

My TEAS score was around 93 and my GPA was a 3.9 something. 

Let me know if you have any other questions! 

Wow, your stats are amazing and you still got waitlisted?? 

Haha thank you for your kind words. 

I think it may have been because I didn't have majority of my prerequisite classes done. I only essentially had A&P 1 and Chemistry checked off because I was taking A&P 2 and dev psych over the Summer. 

By the time I submitted my Summer transcript with these classes, it was August 2nd I believe (a day past the due date). 

Don't let that scare you though! You never know what will happen if you don't give it a try 🙂

It is still a good grade though! I only got 89.3 for the TEAS and 3.58 pre-req GPA. I think I might try other nursing programs in Atlanta.

Did they say when they would send you the official result?

That's a solid score and GPA! Don't let it discourage you from applying. 

Do you mean official result regarding getting off of waitlist? I'm not sure, they just mentioned that waitlist stays active until the first day of class (around August of 2021). 

Here's the letter I received on August 21st from Emory. I hope it helps. 

"After an initial review of your application to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program for the 2021 enrollment cycle, the Admission Committee has decided to place you on the wait list for admission to Emory University’s Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing.

The Admission Committee uses a holistic review method that analyzes your academic background, leadership skills, and social responsibility activities to make admission decisions. Your application was evaluated in the context of the entire applicant pool.The wait list is not ranked and if the Admission Committee determines that candidates on the wait list need to be reviewed for possible admission, the entire wait list is reviewed.  You will be contacted directly if your admission decision changes. The wait list will remain active until the first day of class. 

Thank you for your continued interest in studying with us at Emory.  We thank you in advance for your patience with us as we consider your candidacy more carefully."
 

Thank you for the detailed info! I appreciate that and I hope you get in!! 🙂

Thank you! Let me know if you have any more questions later on.

Hi there! Thanks for sharing your stats, I was curious if you had any healthcare experience when you applied. I'll be applying with a 4.0 and a few hundered hours of healthcare experience as a phlebotomist. Do you know how many transfer students they admit per Fall cohort? 

Since the TEAS score submission is optional, I might leave mine out--I haven't taken it yet since things are so crazy out here in CA, I was hoping to take it at a testing center and everything is just starting to open up for indoor activities. 

Hey! I was just done with my first year at University when I applied to Emory, so I had no experience in healthcare setting besides about 40 shadowing hours at a physical therapy center (if that even counts).

I have no idea how many students they admit as transfer students. I know that current Emory students who are pre-nursing majors only need a 3.0 to have automatic acceptance to the upper division nursing program from what I heard. 

TEAS is optional! But I don't think standardized test score in general is optional; you need to turn in SAT, ACT, TEAS or GRE score I believe. 

Best of luck to you!

I'm from CA too and I also applied for some nursing schools in CA. Your 4.0 and license definitely give you lots of points. However, as I remember, TEAS is not optional in CA...

Unfortunately, as a phlebotomist there aren't many CSUs that are taking those hours for points--SJSU just took off their healthcare experience points and SDSU only approves hours for a select few licensed healthcare workers. I believe SFSU might award some points. Even for Chico, I was below the minimum point cutoff for the past 2 years (last two years minimum has been 94, I would be applying with 91 even with the highest TEAS score). 

I will be taking the TEAS for my CA schools but I have little hope that I'll get into any of them that I might not take the TEAS more than once--depending on my score I might not report it for Emory if they don't require me to 

Ohhh I totally feel you. CSU Chico, San Diego, Sac State's cutoff points are insane. I feel like the only CSU I might have a chance of getting in is CSUEB and they do not open for even fall 2021. They want a 3.8+ GPA, 92+ TEAS, working experience, BSN degree, being bilingual, and a million other things. My 200+ volunteer at the hospital only got 2 points 😓 

I'm worried I don't have a shot. I just applied for the Oct 15 Priority Deadline. I was pre-med but switched to nursing. Realized this semester that nursing is for me. 

I have completed Physiology, Statistics, and Chem 1, but I'm planning on taking the rest of the pre-reqs in the Spring. I have a 4.0 GPA and I have done Bio 1 & 2, Ecology, Genetics, Calculus 1, and Sociology with a 4.0. I'm taking Chem 2, Immunology, and Portuguese right now, so not helping with the rest of the pre-reqs. I submitted an ACT Score of a 33 as well as I haven't taken the TEAS. 

I have volunteer experience at a hospital and I'm currently getting my Clinical Medical Assistant Certification and taking my exam in December. I'm fluent in Spanish as well and my mom went to Emory for her BSN and MSN.

I got into Emory for my freshman year but didn't go as it was too expensive to justify it at the time. I would love to be able to go for nursing school.

Hey I think you’re very competitive. Have you taken Micro, Anatomy and Physiology yet? You got 33 on your ACT then the TEAS would be a piece of cake to you!! It’s basic knowledge. I’d say go for it you definitely have shot!

I haven't taken Anatomy or Microbiology. I have exposure to Anatomy though from my various biology classes. They didn't specify if they prefer TEAS over ACT. They just stated ACT, SAT, TEAS, or GRE but then said if you have a 3.5 GPA you don't have to submit a score.

Have anyone who got waitlisted received an admission offer? Applied for regular decision 1 and got waitlisted for Fall 2021.
