    2020 Spring SMU ABSN program

    The waitlist we are talking about was from last application cycle. We won’t hear anything back from SMU this application cycle until November I believe!

    well I just checked and I couldn't find my last 60 unit GPA on my application. This is what happened to me last time so I just emailed them to find out. Maybe NursingCas does calculate it for us and just hands over the information to the school directly? IDK... All we can do now is trust the process and cross our fingers. We are all great candidates and have much of offer.

    Im so sorry you have had such bad communication with the staff!!! Have you tired emailing (MODERATOR EDIT OF NAME)? Also what date did they give you for the new deadline? So weird I never got that email and I’ve been checking both my spam and regular indox, wonder if it’s due to being on a waitlist or a re-applicant.

    They extended it ??? Until when ? Yes from what I heard before it usually happens when they don’t get enough applicants but I’m not 100% on that. And I would try contacting (MODERATOR EDIT OF NAME( about how they would calculate your GPA . She’s pretty good at figuring all that stuff out !

    @kbena i wouldn’t worry too much about your last 60 unit GPA. SMU does their own calculation a part from NursingCAS ! NursingCAS just calculates your total academic GPA. Mine was lower on NursingCAS but SMU gave me a 3.4 last 60 unit GPA! I asked (MODERATOR EDIT OF NAME) and she said they have their own calculation system!

    @cmerenda they week the waitlist until the week before classes start and then the waitlist gets deleted and then people have to reapply. Everything on my application carried over except my LORs and essays. So your LORs have to resubmit.

    @Tiffany Tereba they send you a email once they have selected students. I just noticed that this tread was for BSN. I have applied and or apply for the ABSN program but I would imagine that the process is the same ! Those who have applied to the ABSN program I plan on starting a ABSN program tread so we don’t confuse each other! Things are already stressful as it is !!!

    @LaurenB87 I used them. After my schools sent my transcripts it took them only about a week to input my grades. I would suggest calling the school/schools to see if they have sent your transcripts in .

    SMU (Samuel Merritt University) BSN Spring 2020

    Hey guys ! I applied for the second time ! This past cycle I was waitlisted at #27 and moved to #20 this past week. I have spoke with others who got in and I would say GPA and HESI scores aren’t everything they are looking at! Some had really high GPAs and Scores while others were lower. SMU seems to really look at the whole package as far as work experience and volunteer work and LORs. I revamped my application and am crossing my figures this time around. I have a 3.67 science GPA and 3.4 last 60 units GPA. My overall HESI score was a 84%. As of now I am working on more recent volunteer work and community engagement just in case I have to reapply for the dec 1st deadline. Good luck to you all !
