Hey guys,

I figured I should share what I know about the Fall 2015 application so far.

So far this is what I know:

  1. Spring 2015 students do not need an entrance exam - let's see if they keep it this way for Fall 2015 applicants
  2. There will be a mandatory SOS Pre Nursing Bootcamp that will need to be attended upon acceptance to the program.
  3. I called advising today (7/7/14) the receptionist said I should start applying in January, but I'll confirm that once again before then.
  4. 60% sciences and 40% cumulative GPA is still the criteria as far as we know.

I figured this should be a great place for us to share our anxiety about our apps and build some friendships :).

Hi guys. I'm wondering the same, wether they will let us apply early in the year for Fall? How much of our pre-reqs must we have completed before we are allowed to apply? I'm taking Micro in the fall and in spring is basically human growth & the intro to healthcare.

It would really be unfair if they require an exam for entrance to the fall 2015 semester but they did not for the spring 2015 - that's not really fair for us, given the fact that we have to apply by May 2015 for entrance to Fall 2015 and that does not leave us enough time to study and prepare & plan.

Hi everyone! I'm also going to apply for Fall 2015, but because I have two young kids I'm applying to the part time generic option. Is anyone else applying for the part time?

I find the fact that there is no entrance exam (hopefully it'll remain that way!) to be bittersweet because the amount of applicants is crazy since MDC is a very affordable school and their minimum GPA requirement is low in comparison with the other nursing programs. It may be more difficult to get accepted because of that, but hard work, dedication, lots of prayer, and a positive attitude is going to get us that acceptance letter!! I wish you ladies the best as you finish all the requirements!
