    CSUF EL-MSN Fall 2009 Applicants

    Hi Jordangirl, It looks like they may calculate the last 60/90 units that you've taken, I think total, so your As and B's may help boost the 2.7. I have a 4.0 in my pre-reqs, and am currently taking Chem this semester. My undergrad GPA wasnt spectactular, but the last 60 units were mostly A's. I had volunteered at a local hospital for a little while, and also at a homeless shelter. In my personal statement, I really tried to emphasize how the accelerated program at CSUF would be a good fit for my future goals, and tried to do the same in the interview. I hope that they are able to increase the class size next year... I know there are alot of qualified applicants out there! You'll get into the program thats right for you... just finish strong in your pre-reqs and try to get some good letters or rec. Start thinking about your personal statement now and have it read by as many folks as you can. Also, apply to different programs that consider applicants based on things other than just primarily GPA.Good luck!

    I was in the morning session. You? Speaking of calling, I m embarrassed to say I'm one step ahead of you:) . I called ( again) today, ( Tues), and the woman this time said they were still "mailing" out letters. Hopefully this week! I wish they would have given us a more reasonable timeline! Maybe it'll be worth all this crazy waiting !!!!

    Anyone get anything!? I called twice, first time they said that letters were being sent out NOW ( as in yesterday), called today to see if it would be via email or snail, and another lady said that letters were sent last week in the mail?.. SO confused.. and anxious! I'm hoping we'll get something this week...

    Wow! Thanks Levoila! So, what's your overall feeling about CSUF? Did she mention why they had a second round of more intimate, more detailed interviews?

    Does anyone have any updates on when we should hear back? I called today, and they're always so abrupt... the lady I spoke to said we should hear back in the next month or 2?! When I told her that in the interviews they said we would hear back April 1-15th, she said emails/letters may go out by then, but they're backed up?! I cannot imagine waiting any longer!!

    CSUN Accelerated B.S.N. Fall 2009 Applicants

    Im currently taking Chem this semester, my last pre-req. Overall GPA was 3.6, pre-req 4.0. I had some minimal volunteer experience at a local hospital, and currently work at a local university in the Social Work department. The best advice I can give is to ACE your basic science pre-reqs, and try to volunteer for a little bit. On your statement, just emphasize why you want to go into nursing, and emphasize why in particular, an Accelerated program would be a good fit for you. The Title V and other requirements do count as pre-reqs, but if you get mostly A's in all of them, you should be fine. Dont worry about a B+! That energy should be spent on getting A's in your sciences... :)
