It was the last day to do it, but I OFFICIALLY SUBMITTED MY APPLICATION TO OHSU!!!! 😍

Anyone else applying for this cohort?

A little about me: I am an older, non-traditional student, single Mama with 8 and 13 year old boys! I currently hold a BA in Psych. I wanted to apply to the ABSN, however, my Statistics class is over 7 years old, and it was also a C. 🙄 I will just have to retake it, if I end up needing to apply next year. This is also my very first application cycle. 🙏

I feel like OHSU is definitely my top choice, but I will also be applying to Linfield, and possibly Concordia (only because they have an accelerated program, and seem to offer more start dates. 

Now the waiting begins!!!! 😬 🤪

Hey I applied to the OHSU 3 year traditional program as well for this fall 2019. Similar to you, I also have my bachelors but in science. Unfortunately I don’t have the best overall GPA in it. I graduated with a 2.9 GPA. Luckily for me, my prerequisites GPA is a 3.82. I do still have to take my A&P II and Lifespan which I am currently taking but I have an A in both those classes as of now. Hopefully that still makes me a competitive candidate. OHSU is my top choice as well.

We have similar stories! I’m also an older (39) mama of a 3 y/o, and I have a non traditional background. It’s taken me a while, but all my prereqs are done. I really hope I get into a program this year. I applied to the 3-yr BSN at OHSU and Linfield. I admit my anxiety level is pretty high these days since I know too well what rejection feels like.

I hope we both get in! I haven’t applied to Linfield yet, but will. I would have to still take Chemistry for them, though. 😑 I’d rather not.

Your pre-req GPA is great! And having our bachelors degree is definitely a bonus for the 3-year program. I have all my pre-reqs done except for Microbiology (taking now) and Nutrition (taking in Spring).

I also applied to the 3-year program! Sounds like I'm similar situation as a lot of you. I have a previous bachelors degree (Latin American Studies), with a 2.8 GPA (which has been the death of my applications at other schools) and a 3.8 pre-requisite GPA. All of my classes are finished except for Micro, which I'm currently taking. I have around 1,500 hours of health care experience as an EMT and clinic assistant. 

The application was EXTENSIVE! Not sure how I felt about my essays, but I guess time will tell. I've been rejected by two schools already, and I'm on an alternate list for another... feeling very ready to be done with applications! Good luck, everyone 🙂

Does anyone know when we will know whether we have been accepted for an interview or rejected? I’m not sure who I need to contact to get this information.

Based off what I've read in forums from previous cohorts, it sounds like the interview emails have historically been sent out mid-march. I can't find anything on the OHSU website to confirm that, though. Ahhh the waiting kills me!

Same. The wait is killing me. I’ll be fine knowing even if I’ve been denied just so I can move on and plan my next steps. Haha

Looks like the interviews are mid April... so I imagine we would hear something by mid March??? Agghh! 😬

Anyone know if there is anyway I can change my application from Ashland to Portland?

Oh gosh, I don't know! My first inclination is that they won't allow it... but it can't hurt to ask! Let me know what you find out.
