OHSU BSN PDX program applicants - 2010

  1. Hi,
    Anyone else out there getting anxious to hear from OHSU's Portland campus for their BSN program? They said they'll notify in early May which is still a month away, but I just want to know now! It's my first time applying and the only program that I applied to this year, so I'm not counting on it.

    Good luck to everyone!

    I applied to Klamath Falls campus.
    I was trying to find out if anyone used last year's stats to pick a campus, and no one replied.

    I didnt use the stats. I wish that I could but I am confined to portland because of my family. Good luck to you but it sounds like you did your research so it sounds like you will be fine!

    I applied to the Monmouth campus....I really wanted to go with Portland but looking at the ratio of applicants to accepted students I decided to go with Monmouth. Good luck to everyone, May is coming up fast!!!

    I also applied to the WOU campus! It is in Monmouth, and I'm in Salem... that's how I chose that branch.

    I'm only able to apply to Portland area schools, but know that really limits my chances. My husband has a great job and we are settled in the area. This will be my second career, but if I were young and single, I'd apply anywhere and everywhere!

    Hello, everybody.
    My friend and I both received our rejection letters from PCC.
    The number of applicants this year was 1005!

    Sorry to hear that you weren't accepted, but hope you can hold your head up high as only 10% get in, if I'm doing math right in that they accept 100 out of 1005 applicants. Yikes, that's some tough competition!!! Did PCC give you an option to talk to them about what you can do to better your chances next go around?

    Yes, they did.
    I pretty much know what the problem was: 3 Bs in my AP classes.
    I am planning to make an appt with the adviser there.

    News from Mt Hood:

    Thank you for your application to the Mt. Hood Community College Nursing program
    starting Fall 2010 / Winter 2011. While your application is complete, you have not been
    selected at this time for an interview. However, as Nursing schools are very competitive,
    MHCC applicants often receive offers from other Nursing schools. Every year, a few of
    our applicants decline prior to their scheduled MHCC interview, which creates a vacancy
    in the interview pool.
    If an applicant declines the interview, you are eligible to be contacted for an interview. If
    you do not wish to be contacted for an interview with the Nursing Program, please
    contact Judy Froehlich, at 503-491-7341.
    You are encouraged to reapply for Fall 2011 admission into this program or any other
    Allied Health Programs. If you do reapply for 2011 admission into the Nursing program,
    you will need to review the new application thoroughly.
    The Oregon Consortium for Nursing Education is currently reviewing the Nursing
    application packet. Upon completion of their review, our college will post the 2011
    application packet on our website. If you have any questions regarding the content of
    this letter, please contact the Admissions/Transcript Evaluator for the Nursing program,
    at 503-491-7341.
    Thank you for your interest in Mt. Hood Community College and good luck in
    your educational pursuits.
