2012 SLU Accelerated Nursing Cohort

  1. Hello all! I was wondering if any other hopeful RNs are applying/have applied to Saint Louis University's 12 month accelerated nursing program starting in May 2012.

    For those of you who have graduated from the program or are currently in the program--could you provide any inside information on the admissions process, what the admissions committee is looking for, etc....do you know approximately how many students apply and how many are accepted? What GPA will make me competitive and how much emphasis did they place on your GPA in the admissions process?

    I have two solid letters of recommendations from former professors secured and I feel like I have a strong personal statement as well. However, I only have a 3.205 GPA (and am an undergraduate non-degreed student) which puts me at the bottom of the totem pole so to speak! I searched around a bit but couldn't find any specifics on these topics.

    Thanks so much!

    Hi, I have also applied. I heard that we are supposed to have a letter in the mail by Saturday. Good luck!! I have the same questions as you do! Did you apply anywhere else? I have been accepted to UMSL's accelerated program and just applied to Barnes Goldfarb's ABSN program.

    Hey! I am attending SLU's BSN accelerated program starting in May 2012. Have you heard back from them yet? I do not know much about the admissions process but I am interested in meeting others who are starting the program in May. In my acceptance package it stated that there was going to be a welcome/informational session at the end of March. Does anyone know when this session will take place?

    I've also been accepted for May 2012. Still decided between this school and 2 others, although I've already enrolled just in case I decide to attend. I really think its a great program, but they really don't seem to have enough scholarship/grant assistance for their program; with debt from a bachelors at a previous private university, that isn't too appealing to me..
