Emory BSN Fall 2014 Applicants

  1. Hi all. The application for Emory's BSN program recently became available. I am SO excited to finally be at this point after taking pre-reqs for 2.5 years! I am hoping to connect with other Emory hopefuls during this nerve wracking process! Anyone else planning to apply for next Fall?

    I just submitted my Emory application today! I am really nervous though because I am still waiting for one letter of recommendation! I am about to start notifying him every other day until the 15th! Have you submitted yours yet?

    I am wondering how soon they start accepting people!

    I am waiting on one as well and it has me frantic! Last year, people started hearing around Feb. 20 or so. Officially, they say March 1.

    As long as you write a good essay, finish all required courses, maintain a good GPA, roughly over 3.5, you will have a great chance.

    My last recommender submitted at like midnight on the 15th after being completely unresponsive for days. I about had a heart attack. Now the waiting begins!

    I am still waiting for him to send the recommendation!!! What is a nice way of saying "You are screwing me over". lol. I can't change my prof either. lol. Waiting is the worst, but we will all be really good at it by the end of this semester! Good luck

    I also have applied to Emory for Fall 2014. I hope I get in! I know it can be extremely expensive but I have been told it is worth it once you graduate! Best of luck!

    Did any of you submit your TEAS score with your application? I know it was optional; therefore, I chose not to submit it. I did not do bad on it, I just decided I would let my gpa, essay and recommendations portray my character.

    I did, as I was told it would strengthen the application and I had to take it for other schools anyway. I probably didn't need to as my GPA, resume, and recs are above average, but I didn't want to take any chances. At the very least, it doesn't hurt to submit it.
