    I can't speak for the Tulsa campus, it is a smaller cohort, so I don't know about their stats (I don't know a lot about ours either- mine weren't too different from yours and I got in not as an alternate or waitlist- there are several people in our cohort that were alternates or waitlist people) I would think you're a relatively competitive candidate, especially since your prereqs are mostly done. I'm enjoying the program, it's very busy but doable. I feel like for the most part the professors really care and want us to become nurses and want to help get us there. People in our cohort have all kinds of backgrounds. Good luck, let me know if you have any other specific questions. I don't know what your application process deadlines and stuff look like this year but it was a tight turn around from the end of March to starting in June, which I thought was a pain. But, just be patient.

    Anyone else have kids? I’m starting to stress a little about missing out on 2 summers with my kids with no breaks.

    I minored in chemistry and felt like that in all of my chem classes.

    I’m certainly not trying to downplay haleyreeces’ experience, but someone had asked about people’s experiences in the thread from last year and this was the response that was posted from someone else that’s currently in the program: “In terms of general information about my experience so far, the program is very doable. We're finishing up what seems like the actual science-behind-nursing classes right now: pharmacology and acute and chronic. It's humbling and it takes up much of your time, but if you're willing to work, most everyone will be able to get through the program. The majority of the faculty and staff are there to help you succeed with only a few there to just collect paychecks. The workload isn't too insanely difficult but managing time is of the utmost importance. Your peers are your best friends throughout the program. You spend a lot of time together. Clinicals have been by far the best experience because for me, I came from a business background and just being in the middle of a health care setting has been very fun. After only 7 months, we're halfway there to being nurses which is fun, exciting and terrifying. You'll understand why this time next year.” Everyone has their own perspective and I think it’s important to move forward not expecting things to be perfect but hopefully we can have a good attitude and make it the best experience for each of us! I’m trying to keep this positive outlook, anyway.

    Well, looking at the thread from last year, I’m gathering that people that had their pre-req’s done definitely had an edge. And I would say lots of them had at least 3.5 GPA. But I think it also depends on the GPA’s of other people applying. All my sciences were done at university level but I did do some of the gen ed pre req’s (history and eng comp) at a community college for financial reasons. Last 60: 3.7 Science: 4.0 Cumulative: 3.6

    The FAQ on the website says decisions are released by mid March. That’s so far away. Hopefully they’ll come out earlier. I tried calling but it keeps going to voicemail. Maybe lots of people are calling? Where is everybody applying? I’m only applying to OKC... I know- eggs all in one basket- but we have three kids in Edmond Schools and don’t want to relocate for this. There will have to be some some serious soul-searching happening if I don’t get in.

    Thanks RileyLD! I hope it’s sooner than later! I hate the waiting game!

    Did someone hear the first week of February from the school? I thought in previous years the deadline was 10/15, and from last year’s thread they didn’t seem find out until the first or second week of December. So as much as I’m anxiously waiting, I’m not planning on anything until March. Cberry- I realize you’re still working on prerequisites, but you sound like a strong candidate! Good luck!
