Midwestern State University spring 2015 hopeful

  1. I have finally gotten everything situated with my classes and GPA to FINALLYYYY apply! I am sending in my application this week, just finished up my chem class with a B thank god. I have a 3.0 GPA for my prerequisites and about 60 to 63 points. What do you think my chances are for getting in? When I talked to my advisor she said if I got a B in chem then I should have no problem but my worrying self doesn't want to wait that long to see. And how long did it take for a response. Application deadline is August 15th. Any helpful advise would be appreciated!!

    Am also applying for spring 2015. Am taking my last prerequisite, I will be done by the end of summer 2. I will turn my application in on August 11th, very close to the deadline. Am just keeping my hopes high. Do have any oily idea when acceptances are sent out?

    Did u meet up with the advisor or through emails. I want to go see her so she can calculate my points for me. I don't know the number of points I have. @ Brittward, are you done with all ur prerequisites? I heard the cut off point for fall 2014 was 66 points.

    I went and met before I took chem this summer and she said if I had a B in chem for the summer I should have no problem. That is my calculation on points so I could be off. I do not know when acceptance letters come or what the cut off will be I am going to email her and see what they are tomorrow I have been at work all week. so I get home and sleep all day after. 12 hour shifts are no joke.

    and points cut off differ every deadline I have heard people getting in with points in the 50s so I am just applying I have a full term of classes next semester so If I don't get in I can just apply for both MSU and Vernon in the fall.

    Well I emailed her and I have 66 points. More than what I thought! She said she doesn't know the cutoff and they take the highest 70 people then start a waiting list after that. I have many friends that have been in or are in the program and the cutoff is usualllyyy around 60 to 64 points. They say you will know 2 weeks after applications are done but many poeple say it takes like 2 months after applications are done. How many points did she say you have?

    I haven't submitted my app yet. I emailed her for appointment next week and she hasn't replied yet. I tried to calculate it myself, I was around 68, 69. I don't know if I did it right. I would know by next week. I'll let u know.

    I have submitted my application to MWSU, but not the nursing school. I'm taking chem for summer 2 right now so I have to wait until that grade comes in to submit the last transcript. I've calculated and I have a 66 with my points but I'm scared that I'm just being over generous with myself... @brittward When was the last time the cutoff was in the 50s? I've spoken to a friend that's in the program there and she told me there are a lot of student she knows that got in with 3.0 science and prereq so I don't know if we're worrying for nothing. XD

    I had a CNA license. I worked while I was being trained for it but not after I received the license because I was still in high school. It's probably wishful thinking, but do you think they will give me the point for that?

    I was waitlisted for fall 2014. I was offered a spot last week and i accepted it. Good luck. The cut off for fall was 66 points. I had 65. Am starting the program in August. Am so happy. Am finishing my last prerequisite on August 7th.

    The spring always has less applicants I have been told so it is easier to get in. I think it was a few years about the points were like 59 or something. I think you have to have experience for them to put the CNA points for it. I have been doing it since I graduated high school and I work at the hospital here at WF we get to do ALOT and are training to start to do lab draws and IVs this week. @brianajade I am so happy for you!!!! I was told I should have no issues getting in but I am still worried. @aimingforabsn - are you applying this summer though? I hope we get in!

    @brianajade Congrats! I hope you love it! @brittward Yeah, I started it in HS and I did my training at a home so they didn't let us do IVs or lab work. Only the messy bits, so aside from taking BP and heart rate, they didn't let us do much else. They also wanted us working full time and that isn't an option for me. I know you'll get in though! I'm going to turn in my final application on August 11th because I need to get my summer 2 grades back before that. I hope to see you in January! ��
