Hello- I just applied to both campuses today! What did they tell you at the information session? I heard the Venice campus was less competitive in previous semesters but since they stopped making the TEAs a requirement they have been getting a lot of applications! I have 9/9 courses completed with a 3.3 pre req GPA.
Hey there Halo!
I applied to both, as well.
It definitely seems like the Venice campus is less competitive because Julie mentioned that in the past they have filled seats at Venice with Bradenton applicants. But I agree that because they no longer require the TEAS, they will probably receive a lot more applications.
Julie also said that those who have completed all 9 courses (prereqs and gen ed) will be reviewed first and have admission priority over those who have not completed all 9 courses. So, that's awesome that you have already completed all 9!
The only really disheartening info from the session was that Julie mentioned they have already offered/filled seats with students who applied for this fall but were listed as "alternates". She didn't say how many, but that certainly makes things more competitive with less seats being up for grabs.
This is only the second application period they aren't requiring the TEAS, though. So, maybe not many people have heard about it yet. And I have heard that Spring applications are usually less competitive than Fall.
So, crossing my fingers that I have a shot! haha
