I am currently in the application process now. I am so incredibly nervous that I won't be accepted because I know it's very competitive. My overall GPA is a 3.52 and my science is a 3.3. I'm taking literature now, so hopefully that won't keep me out.

I applied also! I applied way back in November, so I definitely feel the anxiety. I checked my application status yesterday and it changed to "Under Review." To say I'm nervous is an understatement! I have a 3.94 overall and a 3.67 science, so I'm hoping I can get in even though I'm working on microbiology this semester.

I'm just now seeing that you ladies commented. Has the anxiety gotten better yet? It hasn't for me lol

Are we supposed to send an additional transcript to the nursing department or just the school? I feel so nervous like I'm missing something. It felt like the application process was way too easy! Also, does anyone else's application just say "submitted" instead of "under review?"

No you just send them to the school. The application is super easy isn't it. Mine says under review now.

How long ago did you apply? If it still recent maybe they just haven't gotten to it yet. Deadline isn't till the 15th.

I applied back in September so my app was probably at the top of the pile. If it doesn't say under review by the deadline I'd call them and check on it.

On Friday I went and toured the nursing facility and I met with the woman who is in charge of looking over the nursing applications. She said she is the only person who deals with sorting them out, so it usually will take about six weeks after the deadline. She also said mostly she is looking for a good science GPA and having those classes done. She mentioned an average GPA of a 3.2-3.4, but I don't know if she meant cumulative or science. Either way, I ended up feeling a little less anxious after talking with her.
