Hi Everyone,

Starting a thread for applicants to the Fresno State Spring 2021 cohort. I submitted my application last week and although waiting for an answer is all I'll be able to think about for the next 1.5-2 months, I'm excited and hopeful. Does anyone know what they specifically look for when deciding who will get in?

Hello jromeri. They look at your GPA mostly. My friend and I asked during our orientation session for the pre-nursing program and they said that as long as your TEAS is 75% you are fine. I know some schools say the higher your TEAS score the better the chances but with Fresno States, that’s not the case.

Hello,

I applied for this Spring cycle too after getting on the alternate list for the fall. I asked my counselor and they said it was super competitive for fall with the lowest GPA being 4.0 and mine was a 3.9 haha. It’s all GPA based. I’m hoping the number of applicants is less since it’s only for Fresno state students. Good luck to you!

I got on the alternative list. Any news on how likely it is to get accepted from there?

I am not quite sure for Spring. I've been doing a lot of digging and I was only able to obtain intel on this past fall 2020 admission cycle. The waitlist is normally 10-15 but for the fall cycle there were so many people that dropped that they increased the waitlist to 30 people. But then again 15 of those people had 4.0s, their cutoff was 3.9. Obviously the Spring cycle would have lower stats but I don't have any solid information about alternates in the Spring.

I'm pretty sure that some alternates if any should receive an acceptance email either after the confirmation deadline on August 28th or after orientation approximately January 10-11. I heard that they can pull people off the wait list up to a week after class starts.

Are you comfortable sharing stats? Here are mine:

3.64 Pre-Requisite GPA

3.62 Overall

84% TEAS

They don't give out alternate list numbers for some reason.

A counselor I spoke with said the last Spring cycle, the lowest GPA they admitted was a 3.6, so hopefully this one is similar and we get in.

Prerequisite GPA is a 3.7

TEAS score is 84.7

Thank you for sharing, this helps me and my other friend on the alternate list know where we stand. I'm still gathering intel, will let you know if I find anything else.

I am on the alternate list as well. Kind of bummed but there is still a chance. I have a 3.65 pre req GPA and over 3.71. My TEAS was an 88%. I’m praying that I still get in from the alternates. Thank you for sharing stats.

I got in for the fall semester but shattered my arm so they let me defer to the Spring. I had a 4.0 prereq and overall GPA of 3.01 and like a 97 TEAS. The way they admit people is literally an excel spreadsheet where they sort by prereq GPA then overall then TEAS. 

I see you are in my cohort Romeri. See ya next week

Can’t wait! I hope your arm is better, and super impressive TEAS score!
