    2020 Spring SMU ABSN program

    I didn’t think we were violating terms of service by posting the names of the admissions contacts for the school? Their names and emails are public information and on the website for the school. If I’m wrong, please let me know, because in the 2-3 years I’ve posted about applications and admissions, I’ve never had this be a problem. Thanks in advance for clearing this up for us.

    2020 Spring SMU ABSN program

    @kbena, where did you see (or hear) that it was extended? What’s the new deadline?

    2020 Spring SMU ABSN program

    I have not tried to do the nursing success seminar. From what I understand, it’s designed for underprivileged students who are trying to go to school for nursing. I’m not entirely sure, but I don’t think I qualify. But maybe I’ll look into it? Thank you for the suggestion.

    2020 Spring SMU ABSN program

    Hey Lety86! Looks like we’re back for another round! I forget, are you Sacramento or San Mateo?

    SMU (Samuel Merritt University) BSN Spring 2020

    Hi Knightkr, I think that you should be fine. Your app will be submitted with the grades as “unverified” until they receive them. You could also contact Derick in San Mateo and ask if you should have a second set of transcripts sent directly for SMU (as you would for any classes that are currently in progress). But I don’t think it’ll affect your eligibility. It’s one of the things that’s somewhat out of your control (like LOR’s that are sent in after the deadline). Good luck!!

    Samuel Merritt ABSN Fall 2019

    Congratulations to everyone who got accepted! That’s fantastic!! Just out of curiosity, is there anyone on the board who is still waiting for acceptance/waitlist/rejection emails? My inbox is still empty.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if that had been true!

    I agree RiverDancer. I met with Katherine after the last application cycle and we made a 3 application “plan” for revisions and improvements to make each time should I get waitlisted or declined. However, I would still appreciate more feedback on my statement and resume/CV. I want it to be the strongest possible application each time and having to apply again before knowing the result for Fall 2019 apps, we are going in blind on this one. It feels almost like a wasted application if we can’t get that human feedback each time. What a cluster-$&*#.

    Last I was told was that they hoped to have decisions out this month and we should prep our Spring 2020 applications. They specifically say not to call regarding application status, so I’m reluctant to ask again. In fact, when I called to get info, I didn’t even ask about fall applications, I phrased my question toward applying for Spring 2020 or waiting to hear. I don’t want my name red flagged for being “difficult”!

    That’s really great to hear! I’m going to tell my references to check that box!

    I completely understand time vs money! I could apply to other BSN programs, but by the time I applied, was accepted, and got through one of those, I could have literally applied 4-5 times AND completed SMU’s ABSN program. So I agree with you. I hope you get in here or end up moving to a location that also offers an ABSN program. And you never know, maybe if you’re planning to move out of state, the programs are easier to get into and less expensive? California is just so crazy when it comes to nursing school. Best of luck to you!!

    When are you leaving? Are you able to stay and do the program if they admit you? I’m sorry to hear that you’re in a time crunch. There are MANY schools that highly value and give some priority to military members/spouses, though. I know all our community colleges as well as USF and CSUS do too. Best of luck to you and thank you for your family’s service.

    My honest-to-goodness plan is to keep applying until they are so sick of seeing my application that they finally let me in. Grit, determination, perseverance... stubbornness.... whatever you want to call it!

    Did he answer you today? They told me he was out, which tells me they’re trying to avoid us. That doesn’t sound promising. Get the 2020 apps in progress. Ugh.

    I just called for Katherine and they said she’s out on maternity leave. So they transferred me to Oakland where they said all ABSN counselors are out today and I should try calling for Derric tomorrow.
