    I have a question.....I have heard from a few classmates that I should go ahead and get started on the background check ect. I have my immunizations, TB test, and CPR completed. I thought that the back ground check was something after the acceptance letter! And oh how I hope it comes soon!

    I'm not sure on that, I would think you'd have to have it done before the first day starts. Did you get your verification email yet?
  4. by   impatientlywaiting:)
    Yes I think so! The one that confirms my application? I really hope that we find out soon! I think the waiting is going to get the best of me.

    They sent you one saying how many prefs. and the GPA you turned in? Or are you talking about the one that said that they received the application and that they will send us two separate emails one will be the verification and the other will be if we got in or not. I got that one but not the verification one. I'm confused now?!?

    To my understanding, they "did away" with the verification letter to speed up the process. I only recieved the first email, they recieved my application. I asked admissions Monday, and they said they are estimating that the acceptance letters will be emailed in 3 weeks from September 14!

    So they are not doing the verifications anymore? I really wish there were more people on this to see how many points they applied with... The wait is killing me and it's only been a week lol I hope your right at its only 2 more weeks until we know!!

    I applied last week. I had only 15 points and a 3.9 G.P.A. I know it is low, but I am hoping it is enough to get me in. Right now I am really nervous and hoping they are pretty fast about the emails, so I can figure out what I am going to do next semester. I would have 19 points, but I barely missed the score I needed for the writing test and the math I have not done in a while, so I did not do well on that.

    I had a question about the background checks and when I called to ask, the lady at admissions said that there were a little over 200 applicants with points ranging from 3 to 20 something. Wow....that is a big gap in the points. She said that most that she had seen herself were 16, 17 and lower. So I hope that means the cutoff will be slightly lower and we are all in together!!! The waiting game is killing me as well. Im very impatient lol

    Me too! I wish she would have told you the cut off

    How many applicants get in? I really hope we all get in!!!
  12. by   impatientlywaiting:)
    72 get in. They only send acceptance letters to 62 I believe. So if you get an alternate letter ranging from 1-10, you are probably in. I've been told they do that to allow room for existing nursing students that have to retake NP1. She said he is still reviewing and it would be the three weeks like they said, no longer than 4 she hoped!

    Hey! I was just curious if anyone has heard any "new" news concerning the acceptance letters, points? Hope all is well with everyone!
