I know this is still a little early, but I wanted to go ahead and make the thread so all prospective students could prepare. My credentials aren't nearly as good as a lot of people who have applied, but I felt like it was worth a shot since MUSC is my last chance at a BSN before I just do the ADN and bridge to BSN later on.

I should have right at a 3.1 at the time of my application. Made a C in Anatomy, a B+ in Physiology, and a B- in Chemistry. Microbiology will be in progress next semester, and I made pretty much As in every other non-science pre-req. I'm hoping that my volunteer and work experience will buffer my low GPA and grades :)

Hello!

I will be applying for the Fall 2015 semester. As of right now I have a 3.5 cumalative gpa, a 3.1 science, and a 3.1 pre req gpa. I have 70 volunteer hours and I am working on getting another 30 now to have an even 100. I do not have hospital work experience however I am enrolled to start the nursing assistant program at trident and once I complete that I plan on getting a job in a hospital as a pct. I already have my essay complete, I am just stuck on finding a 3rd reference however I am working on it.

Are re you instate or out of state SummerWertz?

You GPA's are really good, I am hoping that even without medical field work that volunteering will be enough lol

Have you applied to any other schools? My first choice is obviously MUSC, but I also applied to Trident Tech. They offered me a start date of Spring 2016. I'm hoping Merit Placement will move that up some. I'm also looking for other options in case I don't get into the program at MUSC.

I really do not want to go to Trident Tech for actual nursing because it would be 5 semesters of schooling just to get an ADN and I want my BSN so my goal is MUSC because its four semesters for a BSN, if I don't get in for Fall 2015 or Spring 2016 then I am going to apply at a school in Florida where I am from and go back there for a year.

I feel the same. It took me 2 years to get the pre-reqs and my goal is to have my BSN after 2 more years. I've been getting my ducks in a row so that I can quit working if I get into the program. All I need now is an acceptance letter! :-)
