hello i'm applying to mount saint mary's ADN program for spring 08...

i was wondering if anyone here is in the ADN program or got accepted to mount saint mary's college?

what did you write for your personal statement? i mean what qualities are they looking for? there a million qualities i have so this is difficult choosing one.. and also reasons for becoming a nurse...i have many including that my mom was a nurse.

i also have roughly a 3.6-3.8 gpa... is that competitive? i have GE requirements 60units including the requirements for the school.

what stats do i need to get into msmc?? someone help!

Hi Mashamontago,

Well, I just graduated the ADN program at the The Mount this month. Feels great!!! If I remember correctly, they give you guidelines regarding the personal statement. When writing your personal statement, just make sure you answer the questions within the body of the statement. For my personal statement I just basically told my story while answering the questions they wanted answers to.

Your GPA should be fine. I know they specifically look at the science portion of your GPA and weigh that apart from your other classes.(it helps to have done well in the sciences). I am sure you will do fine. Good luck !!!

Mashamontago,

My GPA was around 3.8 when I started at The Mount, but many people got in with lower GPA's. No, I was not involved in any extra cirrucular activities. I worked full time all the was through the nursing program and I have two children also. It was tough, but not impossible. As far as housing, I live in the area, so I drove every day, but the housing on campus looks nice. I hope this helps you. Let me know if I can help you further.

Hi great post, im waiting to hear for the spring/09 decisions. I already got interviewed and passed the teas requirement (72 not anywhere near great). I called admissions and they said the letters will go out sometime in mid-September im just so anxious to know if I got accepted or not, I have a question for you, "I have a assosicates in general studies, have taken critical thinking but i dont have a philosophy class is there anyway they would accept me into the advanced option if all I need is 1 class? Is there a good chance I will have to take the basic option?, and lastly how good of a sign is it if you got a interview? thanks!!!!!
