Hi Everyone.

For the past 2 years I have watched this board, trying to gain knowledge on the admission process for OU. Finally, in one month, I will have completed all my pre-reqs, and will submit my final grades, in order to have my application processed. I need to complete my goal statement, too ;-)

There are many older OU threads...but I thought I would start a new one for those of us who will be interviewing (hopefully) in 2012. Please reply if there is anyone else out there who will be going through the process this winter!

Looking forward to meeting you!

Gosh! I feel like I could have written your post myself! I too will be completing the pre-reqs in December and I too still have to write my goal statement! I hope to interview at some point in the winter!!

Hi there-

I also completed my pre-reqs last semester and am waiting to get the call for interviews (expect that in March). I'm currently taking the patho class and dev psych.

Hi. Im in the same boat. I was told I should be interviewing in the summer....I also applied to u of m so I think the timing of the acceptances, if I am accepted, will be super close. It's nice to think I will have to choose, but the reality is who knows if either will accept me!

when was the deadline for fall 2012. and when can students apply for spring 2013? (im talking about the traditional bsn program)

Got the email to schedule an interview today for the Winter 2013 cohort. I sent in my preferences but haven't received confirmation yet. Anyone else?

I got an email, as well, and have an interview tomorrow! Ahhhh. Very excited/nervous! Good luck to all :)

How was your interview back in february? Did you hear from them yet about acceptance?

I don't think we will find out until April.

The interview went fine! The woman who interviewed me told me we would hear back by mid-late March; however, it seems as though the word on the street is actually April. More waiting for now......

Are any of you guys taking Patho or Informations in the fall of 2012 at OU? I'm registered for both online classes.

Yup taking both. Do you start the ABSN program in January? If so, we have a Facebook page.

I applied for a start of May 2013. I did join the facebook group just to follow you all through your process though.


Did you already take pharm?


Did you already take pharm?

No I'm taking it this fall along with informatics. From what I've read on this board on Facebook, past program students recommend taking it right before you start so it is fresh.

That is what my plan is. I plan on taking pharm in the winter.

Did anyone recently interview for the May 2013 cohort? I just did and am wondering if anyone has gotten any feedback or info yet....

I interviewed in mid June...haven't heard anything. I think it won't be for another month still!

Are you taking physio or informatics this fall?

Hey Blue0101/ SSMom,

I have already taken Informatics and Patho. Im debating taking Pharm this fall, but like Ryba, I have heard that it makes the most sense to wait and take this right before your program starts (which would be Winter semester for us). I just hate waiting until the last minute... I would prefer to have all my classes, physical, BLS, ect completed in advance, so that I am not scrambling in April to complete everything. Of course, we need to get accepted first, lol.

I'm starting to get a little impatient, waiting for our notice as to whether or not we are accepted.... and I know we still have over 3 weeks of wait time!!!!

Does anyone have any idea how many applicants there were for the May 13 Cohort... and how many openings OU has?


17 more days until August 15th! I am getting more and more nervous everyday!

If you wait until the spring to take Pharm, hopefully we can all take it together...since we will get it!! :)

I have no idea how many people applied, I think Kristina said that they take about 60 students.

Let me know if you hear anything!!!!
