I will also be applying to the UF ABSN program for 2013. I applied last year but sadly I did not get in. Unfortunately I put all of my eggs in one basket, so I did not have a back up nursing school to go to. I advise applying to MANY nursing schools. Acceptances are so subjective and there really is no way of telling exactly what the admissions committee wants to see. (Not trying to scare you, just being honest)
I am 22 years old...and I have a Bachelors degree in Health Science from the University of Florida, GPA 3.5. Not the greatest, but I did have difficult course loads with numerous 18 credit hour semesters. Instead of taking a year off when I was denied last year I decided to complete a Masters degree instead here at UF in Health Education. I will be completing it by the Spring and moving on to an ABSN program, or at least I hope so!
My GRE scores are average, but I was below in verbal for what they wanted by 3 points, so I will be retaking the GRE shortly.
UF is of course my first choice
! I absolutely love it here, and I also hate packing/moving so I would rather not-haha!
Good luck to everyone! I am super excited to see what opportunities this year brings!
