    @ttaylor how many points do you have?? Do you know when we going to found out??

    I think have 108 pts. I'm finishing up a couple of my pre-reqs right now. I heard last year that the lowest pts they accepted was 105 or 106. It's may understanding that we should be getting our letters sometime this month. I have a friend that just completed her 1st year in the program, so I'll ask her when she got her letter. I hope it's soon because this waiting is driving me crazy!!!!

    @ttaylor yes I know I applied last year but didn't get in I only had 100 I didn't have micro or indistrict points but now I have both so with micro and other pre-reqs, my in-district points, and hesi, it brings me too a 122! My bf got in last year too they got their letters like May 5-6! At orientation and in the pamphlet it says first week in may! So hopefully that's true!! If you hear anything else keep me informed! Good luck!!

    I'm applying to the 2013 but thank you for putting my mind at ease regarding my points! When you ladies get your letters and start. please keep in touch because i will need help and advice!
    something that already bothers me, i asked a pre-nursing student in my bio class why she wasnt going nursing here and she told me because they are racist here. she honestly shocked the crap out of me so i couldnt say anything more. not that i would let something as petty as racism stop me, still it kind of hurt to hear that...
