    UIC Fall 2021 BSN Program

    For anyone on the waitlist Jon Reyes said, "I’m still working through emails, so apologies for the delay if you’ve reached out. I will send a confirmations by the end of next week stating whether or not we’ve received a response from you." Also if you get pulled from the waitlist and get accepted can you guys let us know. Please and thank you!

    I got waitlisted too. 😕 I wonder if they have a "deadline" for the waitlist students. I've heard where some students get waitlisted, and then the university accepts them a week before classes start. I would hate that considering my back up plan is Illinois State and I would have to move there. Also, for the people who were waitlisted, did you enter your name and email address? Did you get a confirmation that you signed up for the waitlist? When I submitted to be put on the list I never got a confirmation email so did they not send one or did I enter the wrong email?

    I'm kind of glad I know when we will hear, but also not. The next two weeks are going to go so slow.

    UIC Fall 2021 BSN Program

    I applied to ASU, Illinois State, University of Wisconsin, University of Utah and UIC (all 3 campuses). I'm trying to take out as little loans as possible. So the out-of-state schools are a big risk but they offer a lot more than just a nursing program. I applied to UIC last year (2020) and they denied me due to GPA. So if I don't get in this year, I'm not going to wait another year again. Based off the available seats last year, and the number of interviews this year, I think only 10 students are not getting in....? I looked at school with late acceptance but they are schools that didn't offer much or I didn't meet the requirement (I.e. missing classes) Illinois State accepted me as a student and I picked Medical Lab Science. I'm already looking into being a traveling MLS so it's not that far off being a traveling nursing. Just less money, but Illinois State gave me a grant and I only need about $3,000 in loan per semester. Beside getting a BSN, another goal is to graduate with as little loans as possible.

    Moraine accepts in-district students first. 😕 So even if you have a 3.5 GPA, they will accept that in-district student that has a 3.0 GPA first. (My friend was going to go to Moraine until they told her that). I know a few people that went to Chamberlain, but it's just so expensive for what it offers. I was thinking about it too. If I got to Illinois State, most of my tuition would be paid off by grants.

    Yeah. 😕 It's not looking too good. A lot of schools accepted me as a student, but said no to their nursing program. UIC is the last school to hear from. It's they deny me then I'll be going to Illinois State for Medical Laboratory Science, and just give up on being an RN. I'm hoping I get in.

    UIC Fall 2021 BSN Program

    Based off when people found out last year, I would assume the week of 12 - 16 of April.

    UIC Fall 2021 BSN Program

    Did anyone else get an email for UIC College of Nursing scholarships? It was due on the 7th. I did it and it was real simple. It asked what campus I'm going too. I put Chicago but what if I don't get in Chicago but Springfield instead? Can the scholarship be transferred to Springfield? Springfield and Champaign were options, but I could only pick one.

    UIC Fall 2021 BSN Program

    I put down the Chicago campus as my first option, Champaign as my second, and Springfield as my third. Since a lot of students apply to UIC I wanted a few backup plans and Illinois State is one of them and the other out of state schools I applied too.

    I think I did okay. I hope my answers made sense. I really don't remember much because I was so stressed out. The interview is just a foggy memory. LOL It sucks that we have to wait a month. My friend had an interview the same week we had ours and she will find out this week if she gets in (it was for a different university and different program though). Has anyone heard back from any other school? I'm still waiting to hear back from Illinois State University, and University of Utah (expected to get denied from there due to a missing class). 😕

    Is Chamberlain a good school?

    I've heard mix things about Chamberlains nursing program. Some people tell me not to go, and that it's really expensive with hidden fees, and others tell me they enjoyed it and got jobs right after graduating. I have an interview with UIC for their program, and I got accepted into University of Arizona's Biology Major but I'm thinking of the "what if's." For anyone who went to Chamberlain, or has any experience with them what is your opinion? The only issue I have with them is how "pushy" they are. I signed up for information from them about two weeks ago, and ever since then I've been getting emails, calls, and text from them every other day.

    Update: Concerned about not getting a confirmation link. I signed up again for the same time and day. Within minutes I got a confirmation email. Wonder if I just didn't enter the right information since I was at work. 😕 Ope.

    UIC BSN Fall 2020 interviews

    So I got an interview! What kind of questions did they ask? Supper nervous. I've only had 4 job interviews in my whole life. 2 of which I didn't get the job. What are things to do/not do during a virtual interview?

    I got an interview!! Super nervous. I got rejected from the Nursing program at a UW-Madison, but got accepted for a Biology Major at University of Arizona. It was a roller-coaster of emotions today. LOL My interview is on Tuesday. Did anyone get a confirmation email regarding your interview? I never got a confirmation but emailed myself a link to the zoom site. Does anyone know what kind of questions they will ask?

    No, I was denied. Back then my transcripts said I had a 3.0 GPA, but when I saw everyone getting their interview calls I called to see my status. They told me I was denied because I had a 2.73 GPA and the requirements a 2.75. IDK how they calculate it. They tried to explain it but I was so confused. So I retook a few classes to raise my GPA. Really hope I get in. I had the medical director write my letter of recommendation so I really hope that gives me a boost.
