    I applied to three and wish I had applied to a few more. I would be extremely happy in any of the three schools so I am just waiting on pins and needles to get a letter!!

    Just one hear as well. I know stupid stupid, but its the only one I had all the requirements for. I have done alot of praying this year! Plan to apply to another one too but their deadline is after I will hear from the one so hopefully I won't have to apply there. I should hear something around the end of this month. Man this is torture! Prayers are welcomed!

    I applied to four schools. I'm in at first choice, which is also the most expensive! Still waiting to hear from the others...

    Good luck to everyone!

    I applied to only one. I got in as a first choice applicant and I start in August for my ASN program.

    I applied to 10 schools. I am a second degree student who has given up alot to go back to school. I wanted my BSN but know that it may not be possible in terms of the competition and killer gpa requirements. I got in to 3 schools and will most likely have to move. But hey--it's a testament that if you want it don't give up even if you don't have a perfect gpa.

    Don't give up they're are schools out there with no waiting lists..etc. You just have to do lots of research and not give up.

    last year , I applied to 2(thinking of commute times). Did not get into either. Learned my lesson and at my age(39) I cant keep re applying, so I have decided to go anywhere(Ct. is not that big of a state anyway). I applied to 7 schools. the furthest from my home is an hour and half commute. But I have taken all pre requsites and electives (community colleges are pretty close with requirements), so I wont have to commute all week.It is very very competetive and I didnt want to put my bets on one or two schools.My back up plans..applied to 2 respiratory programs and am looking into LPN programs, I want to be a an RN very badly, but I need to do something soon, my husband is killing himself working 2 jobs and we have 4 children. with LPN I can work on RN while working and bringing home some money. I even have a "Plan C"- got into a 4 year college as an undergraduate and they take my pre nursing courses as a transfer PLUS a bunch of my electives, so It will take longer to get my RN (BSN), but I needed that option. Good luck to all, never give up and keep posted as you all hear back from schools....

    I applied to 3 schools. I hear back from them in April. I'm pretty sure I won't get in, my GPA isn't the bestest. So I'm thinking I'll take another year of pre-reqs make myself more marketable and apply to even more schoools! I don't care where they are, there's nothing here tying me down and I figure I can live off loans.

    Any suggestions for nursing school interview?

    I applied to 5 schools and got into 4. My first choice I was waitlisted. In hindsight I would have applied to more schools. I'm a second degree student and I really wanted to pursue grad school to become a nurse pracitioner, but programs are so competitive in my area.

    But since I did get into my second choice I really didnt need to apply to the rest of the schools. Although, it is nice to have options and insurance that I would be going atleast somewhere. I honestly didnt have any plans if I didnt get in this year and it would have been another year of waiting.

    Any suggestions for nursing school interview?
    What kind of interview? Is it phone or in-person? All my schools required interviews. I've done one-on-one, group and phone interviews.

    Feel free to PM if you need any specific advise on interviews and there are also some good threads about interviewing.
