    Thank you @gcfo! And of course, a little about me:
    I graduated from NC State University in Dec. 2017 with a BS in Human Biology. My undergraduate gpa was a 4.0 and I was involved in numerous service and medical related clubs while at NC State. I have my CNAI and CNAII and have work experience in Home Health, I've worked on the Ortho/Neuro unit at WakeMed Raleigh, and currently work full time night shift at Moore Regional Hospital in L&D and Postpartum.

    If you have any more specific questions please feel free to ask!

    Good luck!
    Wow! You are indeed a very competent applicant. You definitely deserve the spot!

    As for me, I don't really know what decision to expect, tbh. This is my second time applying to UNC. I applied to the traditional BSN program that started in the fall 2018 but unfortunately got rejected (i have not completed all the prereqs then). I'm from the Philippines where I earned my BS degree in Pyschology. My undergrad GPA is 2.95 which is really low. But I started taking the prereqs immediately when I moved here last year. So far, my prereq GPA is 4.0 which can hopefully pull up my cumulative GPA. I don't really have a lot of experience in the medical field. I worked as an English as Second Language (ESL) teacher for Korean students for 2 years in the Philippines. I started volunteering at the Women's Birth and Wellness Center at Chapel Hill (did this for 4 months), and the Belk Boutique in Duke Cancer Center (still doing it) last year to somehow get an exposure. After getting denied from the BSN program, I continued with the completion of the prereqs, and I participated in an honors project to further boost my application. I also finished the nurse aide I course, and will have my skills test on October 26th. (I tried applying to NCAT's ABSN, and CNA I listing is one of their prerequisites, but it went terribly because I wasn't aware of the required interview so I missed it!!!) Right now, I'm working part-time as a server while I continue taking more subjects to be able to apply to other schools if I don't get in UNC.

    Anyway... I'm just really hoping for the best. It is what it is! Good luck to all of us that are still waiting!!

    Hey everyone! My name is Janah and I got my acceptance letter today! I'm located in Fuquay Varina, NC for those of you waiting to hear back in the area. I had a friend who applied located in Raleigh and she got her letter in the mail today. I'm super excited about meeting you all! A little about me: I'm a recent graduate from NCSU (graduated in the summer of 2017). I majored in human biology and have two minors in nutrition and Middle East studies. I applied to their bsn program in 2015 for their 2016 cohort and got waitlisted. I was accepted to the undergraduate ECU nursing program but decided to continue my bachelors in human biology due to personal reasons. I was a apart of numerous clubs, tutored high school children, and provided volunteer services abroad and locally at two hospitals. I am a CNAI and have been working as one for almost a year now at Duke in the floatpool. Can't wait to start this new journey with you all!
