TCU BSN Fall 2018 Applicants

  1. Hi All,

    I applied to the TCU BSN accelerated program for fall of 2018. Has anyone else applied and if so, does anyone know the acceptance/rejection process.

    I am a long shot for being accepted being that I have a few science prereqs to complete this spring and summer, but I thought I would throw my name in the hat.

    Hey I applied for the BSN program. The accelerated program required a science gpa of 3.5 or a bachelors and I have neither. They accept about 70 students for accelerated. what are your stats if you don't mind me asking.

    I have a previous degree, but NursingCAS GPA is calculated as 2.9 due to repeat, but actually 3.5 on transcript. Bummer

    Oh okay your grades are pretty good. Yea Nursing Cas calculated my Gpa wrong as well. I think TCU will update it for us, because they're e suppose to accept the highest grade so we will see.

    I'm applying to Commerce, and Mountain View college as well. I'm hope someone accept me. These programs don't accept a lot of students,
    So I'm just keeping my fingers crossed.
    Wbu? You applying anywhere else?

    True, they don't accept many. I met with someone from TWU this morning and she said they only take 30 in the night/wknd program, so that one is out, but I'm still applying for the traditional.
    Also applying to: Texas Tech, A&M Corpus Christi, maybe UTA but it's extremely competitive.

    Good luck!

    Thank you! Good luck to you too!! If I can find a job at a hospital I'm going to apply to UTA it's easier to get in when you already partnered.

    Hey! Thought I'd join in since I also applied. I got the email that said they're starting the application reviews in March and will let us know by mid-April. I wish the wait wasn't so long! I've also applied to UTMB (BSN) and Blinn (ADN) and I'm also applying to Austin Community College once I finish up my pharmacology class.
