GSU Fall 2012 - page 30

Not sure if there's one of these started already, but it's still pretty far off, so I thought I'd make one. Have any of you guys taken the TEAS yet? If not, where are you taking it? I didn't see any... Read More

    Well, I tried emailing her, but she replied that I should call her instead. So I called her yesterday, but I had to leave a voicemail. Hopefully, she'll call me back today. Whatever information I find out, I'll definitely share it here. Where are you on the waitlist? Did you apply for traditional or ACE (I know you've said it already, but I forgot!)?

    I talked to Angela yesterday and she said it is unpredictable to know how many if any she will call from the wait list.. She said it depends on students finishing their pre-requisites, being able to afford the school etc and she may only know if she will need to call somebody after orientation.. I believe it is in July, if I'm not mistaken.. So I tried to ask her about previous semesters and she said it varies.. sometimes she only needs to call 1, sometimes she needs to call 4.. I asked her about my chances (I'm number 9) and she said there was a semester sometime ago that they had to call everybody from the wait list (but I personally don't think this is realistic nowadays and I'm losing my hopes.. I think 9 people being called from the wait list is pushing too much.. don't want to be pessimist.. just realistic..). but anyway..

    troop, I think you have realistic chances of being called and I have my fingers crossed for you!!!!

    Wow, thanks for the info and the positive vibes, Brazilian nurse! I was wondering if there was some sort of orientation over the summer. I know the whole wait list thing is so unpredictable and variable, that I felt bad even trying to ask Angela about it (since I know she can't really give us any definite answers), but I just feel a little confused LOL.

    Do you think you are going to go ahead and attend Mercer?

    troop, I'm debating wether Mercer and GPC mainly.. I also got accepted at KSU, but it's far for me so I think I'll eliminate that.. Trying to figure out if GPC would be a lighter load than Mercer and if that would make the most sense for my family.. still confused as to what I'm gonna do....

    I was on the waitlist at GSU 2 semesters in a row, and never got in. I am at Mercer now, and I love it!! It is definitely intense, but so worth it!!

    Hey guys the orientation is actually on August 16th.

    Brazilian Nurse you have amazing options! I know sometimes things don't go the way we plan but it all seems to come together nicely. We just can't see past the way we want it to go! lol But if you should feel down, just think of it as you are in the decision making position now, you get to choose between three good schools!

    I always thought this process was a fight for me alone, but this forum has opened my eyes to the fact that we are all fighting to get to where we want to be in life, and as long as we never quit, we will reach that place!

    Hi Gsu11, can you tell me a little bit about the schedule and how much time per week do you usually dedicate to school? Thanks so much!!! I'd rather go to Mercer and go ahead and get my bachelors in 2 years (instead of go to GPC), but I'm a little bit concerned about the intensity of the program and not be able to spend much time with my baby.. Thank you!!

    Has anybody else heard anything yet? I know of a classmate who applied and hasn't gotten a response yet, but her mail is forwarded (to an address out-of-state, I think). Have all the decision letters gone out?

    I am not going to lie and tell u it is not intense, because it is! You typically have class or clinical all day everyday... First semester u r at the hospital 1 day a week. Second semester 2 days a week. It takes a lot of time and commitment. However, the great thing about mercer is u get more clinical experience than any other school. Also, I Would definitely say get your Bachelors, whether it's at mercer or not. Many hospitals ate not even hiring nurses with associates anymore. Many people in our class have children, and they do just fine! It definitely is hard, but just think in 2 years it will definitely be worth it!

    Thanks Gsu11!!! I've decided to attend KSU Traditional program. I think it will make most sense as I won't have to take as many credit hours compared to Mercer and also take one extra semester to do it.. So basically it will take me just the summer semester extra to graduate at KSU.. I'm excited and happy about my decision! Even though it is far for me, from what I've read and talked to some KSU students, I won't have to drive there everyday.. so.. anyway.. wish me luck!

    Best of luck to you at KSU, Brazilian nurse! I'm sure you'll do just fine. The most important thing is that you are happy with your decision and that you think it is what will work best for your family.

    GSU is still the school I'd like to attend. I'm going to reapply for Spring, but I'll also meet with Angela Corley next week to discuss the specifics of my application packet & wait list status.
