I'm thinking about it, but the only school I know of that offers an 8 week A&P is full! Tough decision wondering if spots will open......

Do you know if it's just a typo on the website when it says "Unofficial" transcripts from each college attended under admission requirements??

That would save about $60 if so:coollook:, but it's kind of unusual that they'd be okay with unofficial ones.

I'm not really sure. I think it's probably ok because you send official transcripts to GMU and the school of nursing doesn't need a duplicate official. However, just make sure you're sending 2 of everything...i.e.: send an official to GMU and an unofficial (but I sent official copies anyway) to the school of nursing. People were getting confused in that and I wouldn't be surprised if that wasn't the reason someone didn't get in.

I am pretty sure you have to take the TEAS before submitting the application. I am taking mine next week.

Oh, that's different from when I applied. I would recommend double checking their website for everything then, since things have changed. But, on the website, it does say they won't accept a TEAS test with a date prior to Jan 15 and it has to be taken in their testing lab.

It says prior to Jan 15 of 2009 they won't accept those scores but those after Jan 15 2009 they accept. It says on the application I did online that the TEAS scores must be submitted with the application. (I made that mistake too), and their application for fall of 2010 is due by this Jan 15th at 5pm.

Has anyone taken the TEAS test yet? I just took it today and got a 88.2. It also gave the national/program averages and percentiles (72.8/77.4 and 97/93 for me)...does anyone know what is a competitive score for this program? I tried looking online but to no avail....

Also is anyone applying for Fall 2010? Our applications are due next week! It's coming up sooo soon!!!! :eek:

I have no idea what a good score is! I didn't do as well.. got 79.8%

I don't know how much they factor your score in anyways. I think this is the

first year they're making you take the exam, so I hope they won't count it in as much.

i can't believe you find out in april! that's an improvement from last year -- we weren't notified until june.

as far as gpa, i don't know about anyone else, but i got As in all of my prereqs and i think that's really the only thing that matters. i also think your essay counts for a lot.

good luck!!

Hi,

I applied for the accelerated 2nd degree BSN program at GMU. I got my Bachelors in 2009, but not from Mason. I've also been taking classes as a non-degree student for the past year at Mason (mostly taking the few pre-reqs I needed) Today I got an acceptance letter from George Mason's Admissions Office saying, "Congratulation on your acceptance to George Mason!..." and all that other stuff. They asked me to immediately send my deposit to confirm my enrollment, which i did within minutes!

I was really excited about getting accepted to the Nursing program...but I thought it was strange that I hadn't received anything directly from the Nursing school. Now I went back to the Nursing school website and it said that I'd be hearing about the decision directly from CHSS (the Nursing school). Did I get in to the University but not the Nursing school??? I am crazy paranoid about this? There was no mention of that I hadn't been accepted to the nursing program either. Can someone explain their experience getting admitted and receiving their letter???

Please Help!

Yes, it looks like you have SO FAR just been admitted to the university, not yet to the nursing program. Don't panic, though, last year the nursing program didn't send out decision letters until June. I think this year it may be a little earlier, but you could always call to double check. Also, I would call the GMU admissions office and find out exactly when you have to send in your deposit to the university -- you ought to be able to wait until you find out for sure from the nursing school but I would just double check the dates.

So congratulations on getting into GMU! Now you only have to wait a little longer to hear about the nursing program! Good luck :)
