    I'm so happy someone started a thread for 2013 applicants, I applied as well and am so, so nervous.

    I've done pretty well in my pre-req's (A's in all the sciences/sociology's/math courses/b+'s in English from my first undergrad degree).

    I scored 90 on the math, and 83 on the reading portion of the TEAS. I wish i had any idea where we all stood in terms of acceptance?

    Does anyone know how much our resume/personal statements/recommendation's are weighed in our consideration? Are they kind of just overlooked?

    PLease help!!!

    I just asked that question of the admissions office and the reply was as follows.

    In response to your inquiry, the admissions process can be lengthy due to the volume of applications that are received each year. Once your file is complete it will be reviewed here in the Admissions Office. So long as there are no items or requirements outstanding, your file will then be forwarded to the College of Nursing for consideration. Your file will be presented to an Admissions Committee within the College of Nursing and a decision will be rendered. Decisions are always communicated to applicants in writing. A majority of the decisions will be made between March and April.

    So, we have a few more weeks (months!) to go.
