OOOPs I meant I am graduating June 2012!!!! lol

Also you can take Stats simultaneously with Research but that is the LATEST you can take it

I know someone that challenged OU for previous math work that had the content of STATS(that they require) in it and did not have to take Statistics!

This is GREAT information...thank you! I find their website for hard to move around. I haven't started yet and I'm a bit nervous about their format. I sent you a PM...thanks for your help.

Yikes! If this is the timeline to hearing anything from OU (2/4 to 3/24 is roughly 7 weeks), I won't get a response until about the second week of April. That's a long wait with not much buffer time to an 8 Mar semester start. I can only hope that that DAR won't have any unpleasant surprises.

Well now I did get confirmation emails that they had received my transcripts and I had been admitted prior to the 24th. By 2/7 they had gotten my application. By 2/18 they received my transcripts.3/16 I was accepted into the program and received my online orientation course.OAKID password creation to sign into OU email and black board.I called on the 23 stating I didnt see where to sign up for classes. Office told me they had just recieved my initial DARs. I asked that it be emailed to me that day.That is my time line. I am currently waiting for an updated DARs

Thank you OUstudent for being so thorough. This has opened up alot. I kind of felt like I was searching around in the dark and this has shed a lot of light. I have taken Soc 111 @ Sinclair. I did get a D in that course( I checked the other day) I hope they come back with some better analysis. I took english 1 &2 @ sinclair as well. I already have A&P 1,2,3. A bunch of chemistry classes from another degree.Math classes as well.Im going to go over my classes with a fine toothed comb. I dont plan on taking more classes than what I need.

SShanon81, they accepted one of my D courses the second DARS review! They will re-evaluate and update things. Tell me again when you're slated to start??? I bagged it for this session but need to enroll if I'm going with OU. Keep me posted.

I just finished getting a TON of information from ASU. Total cost for BSN is $12,000 t/-. With military benefits under $11,000. They are CCNE accredited...but not regionally if that matters to you. 10 nursing courses...that's it. Courses start monthly and are 8 weeks in duration; can take up to 4 months off in a year if need be. PM if you want more info. I realize this is an OU thread. I got through all the red tape (I think) with OU but I'm still not real comfortable with the lack of information and the speed at which they do things.

That's quite a bit different than my experience so far. I have not heard anything at all from OU since I sent my application on 2/21. I e-mailed the the OU "enrollment specialst" who originally contacted me about a week and half ago. Though he responded quickly, what he told me was not encouraging: "Once ALL of your documents have been received, you should receive a confirmation email from main campus letting your know all of your documents are in and you are under academic review."

Since I haven't heard anything, I guess that means they have not gotten all of my documents. Of course the problem is that I have no way of knowing what, if anything is still outstanding. At this stage, I've given up worrying about things - I did not plan to start until summer anyway. I have also applied elsewhere just in case OU continues to be a riddle wrapped in an enigma and as a hedge against an unfavorable DAR.

Like Chuckster I got very little info along the way. It's very frustrating. I assure you it will come through but not in a timely manner. This type of thing makes me nervous about how the curriculum will be. I ordered my text 2 weeks before the start of class (today, but delayed it) and it's still NOT here! ASU is looking better everyday.

They rec'd all my transcripts and I am "officially" under review. I am not slated to start until the Summer I session in June - so I won't receive an official acceptance until late May according to my enrollment advisor. And where are you ordering books from?? I ordered the required text for the Transitions 300 course from Amazon - had it in 2 days :heartbeat.

Well that's good to know. I went to their online bookstore. I will definitely check out Amazon in the future. I just purchased the one book for NRSE 300. I don't know when I'll start for sure. I'll shop around for books. Thanks! My book came today...about 2 weeks to arrive.
