Cal State San Marcos ABSN Spring 2019 - page 2

Hey all, just wondering who is applying to the Spring cohort at CSUSM. I actually applied to Fall and was accepted but had to defer to get better situated for the move. It worked out too because this... Read More

    I just submitted my application for spring '19. My status still says complete Do you guys know the timeline for the application process? Like when should they contact you after you submitted an application, and how many weeks until they send you your evaluation.

    @IE_Tacoma94 Nice! It took them a solid 4 weeks for me to get my evaluation, after the window closed! I had submitted my application like a month prior to the deadline as well. So unless you get lucky, expect to wait! And I have already been to an info session at the Temecula campus for the fall term, but am going tomorrow to the main campus to check it out. I also want to explore the Carlsbad area as well since I plan on living there.

    @mleiaa I think that answers your question too but I would say feel free to email their general nursing email with any questions on status etc. They are really good about updating you. There are only two ladies who split up the applications/evaluations so they have a lot to do. After receiving the evaluation. it took about 2 more weeks to get the admission email. good luck!

    @inkabruce it took exactly a month for them to get my evaluation back. Submitted June 13 and received an email with my evaluation July 13th. Should we be expecting the first wave of acceptance to go out on or after Aug. 8th?

    I spoke with my adviser a few weeks ago and she said that acceptance letters will begin for spring 2019 in the first week of September. It's getting close!

    Hey guys!
    So I just submitted an application to Spring 2019. However, I have not completed my final pre-req ( Micro ) and won't be done with it until this fall semester. I was told that my application may be rolled over to Summer 19' due to the pending pre-req. Do you guys have any input ?

    I currently live in Escondido and would prefer going to the San Marcos campus.... but idk if my score (~36-38) would be competitive enough

    From what I heard, they can't really evaluate you unless you're done with all your prerequisites, which means they can't give you any points for it. So yes, your application will roll over to Summer '19. Unless you get really lucky and someone gives up their spot for Spring '19.

    Hi everyone! I've been a lurker here for awhile, but finally decided to post here now that I want to seriously apply this upcoming spring. I've only just started the application process last week, since I had spent the whole month of July applying for the TEAS exam on 7/31/18 (totally rocked it too - got a 91.3% yay!). But now I'm currently in a mad scramble for all my transcripts and things like that.

    I am thinking of turning in my application tonight, and will deliver all my documents to the school personally on Wednesday to make priority deadline. One thing I am concerned about is on the application, it mentions AP scores and the possibility of sending them in. It's been YEARS since I've taken the AP exam, and it mentions on my official transcript from my primary undergraduate school what my scores were when I turned them in to attend UCI. I was wondering if I needed to go on Collegeboard and have the scores officially sent still? That would require 15 day processing which I am worried would jeopardize my chances :/ The AP exams were for U.S history classes and English literature and language (however, I had taken writing classes anyways while attending UCI to cover the nursing core). Keeping my fingers crossed it isn't necessary to turn it in.

    Wish you all luck with your own application period! Hope to meet all of you in the future

    Hello Everyone,
    I've been checking this thread out the last couple weeks, and now that things are picking up I finally decided to join in. I submitted my application back in May. I had already applied for Spring 2018, but due to not completing a prerequisite until December of 2017, I was rolled over to Summer. Although I was offered a spot for the Summer 2018 cohort, I had to decline - Temecula is just too far of a commute from where I live. So, fingers crossed I get into San Marcos' spring cohort this time round. Anxiously anticipating September's arrival! Best wishes to all of us!

    Just so you know, even though you may have classes at the main campus in San Marcos, you could still be assigned a clinical rotation as far north as Riverside. Hopefully it works out for you, I know some people in my cohort who wanted the San Marcos campus but wasn't worth the risk of turning down an acceptance at the Temecula campus.

    @eastlakenurse Congrats on the TEAS! I think as long as you have the right courses completed during undergrad, you will be good. It looks like they only absolutely need those AP scores if there isn't sufficient undergrad courses to meet the requirements. To be safe, I would email them. But either way you will find out once you get your evaluation. good luck

    Hello everyone! I was wondering if anyone could help in clarifying a few questions I had about the application process. I'm interested in applying for Fall 2019 so I'm a little eager to get the process going!

    I realized that the Fall 2019 application is going to be available on October 1, and I am currently enrolled in physiology (my second to last prerequisite). I believe the priority deadline for fall semester is in mid-March (according to past forums); however, I was planning on taking my last prerequisite (microbiology) during spring semester 2019. Because of this, I panicked and waitlisted myself into a microbiology class for Fall 2019 (currently spot #16!).

    If I do not get into the microbiology class and cannot complete my last prerequisite this semester in time before the priority deadline in March, I would have to send my completed transcripts in May. My question is, if this were to happen, I would possibly be pushed for Spring 2020, correct?

    With the point system, I would guess and say that I have around 34~ points (not including the TEAS, haven't taken that yet). I have a 4.0 GPA in my past 60 units and a 3.85 GPA with my pre-nursing core. Not sure if that'll be enough to let me into Fall 2019 after the first and second wave of accepted application spots have been filled.

    Does anyone have any advice or information about in-progress classes during the application process? Thank you all and good luck with your applications!!

    Hi! you will most likely be pushed to Spring '20. Since your last prerequisite won't be done til the end of Spring '19, they can't evaluate your application and can't give you admission points. Looking at your GPA though, you have a pretty good chance of getting in if there are any available spots left for Fall '19
