    anyone applying to CU for 2010?

    I'm in San Francisco and I received my acceptance letter today for the summer start for the accelerated program. I'm pretty sure that I'm going to decline... so, that's good news for the call list folks. I have a 3.7 GPA for my BA and a 4.0 for the pre-reqs. My undergrad degree is from a fancy top-tier school... I don't know if they factor that in or not. I took Stats years ago and then I took Micro and Anatomy in the fall at a community college. I made sure to send them my transcript at the end of the semester so that they could see my grades. I'm in Physio now. I have 7.5 years of work experience in the non-profit field (always for organizations that focus on low-income kids) and I've been volunteering at a small ER since September.

    Seattle U APNI - 2010 Entry

    I just came home to an empty mailbox, yet again! Weird. seattle2010 - I just scrolled back and found that you're GNP and since I'm FNP, we must be on different waitlists. It's hard to say whether "at the top" means actually number one or if I'm just in like the top 5. Who knows? Certainly not me since I still don't have a letter!! I had a similarly weird email experience with Hopkins. I hadn't heard anything about my status and then I got an email from their financial aid department that was addressed "Dear Student" and I was like... huh? I didn't get an actual acceptance notice until a couple days later.

    JSBH - Well, in that case, you can probably consider yourself one slot higher on the waitlist because I think that I'm going to enroll in another program anyway. I apologize if my post created any unnecessary anxiety for anyone. I just know that - at least from my experience on these boards - I've always felt like the more information, the better!

    Seattle U APNI - 2010 Entry

    Hi everyone - I still haven't gotten anything in the mail but, I did just get an email from them. They forwarded me an invitation to the accepted students day on 3/17 with a note that says "Because you're at the top of the waitlist, we'd like extend this invitation to you..." So, I guess that means I'm waitlisted. A.

    I got an acceptance letter in the mail today for the PNP program. Unfortunately, it said that during the second year, I'd have to do my clinicals outside of Tennessee because they have limited local placements. Soooo..... I'm going to decline the offer. Hopefully, that will open up a spot for someone else!

    Yikes! That beats me! I only had to round them up for NINE. I, too, was given only a few days to do it. I got the email on a Wednesday and had to send them by the following Monday. 5 of the classes that they requested were prerequisites that I took within the last year at community colleges. So, that was easy because I still had all that stuff. 4 of the classes were from my undergrad degree (2001-2005) so, those were significantly harder. My college had all of the course bulletins archived online so, I managed to dig-up the course descriptions. One syllabus I happened to find online just from googling. The instructor had it up on her website since Spring 2002!! Isn't that crazy? For the other three syllabi, I just started calling departments and emailing my old professors. For two of them, the department had them in their records and just emailed them to me. I couldn't track down the third syllabus for the exact term that I took the course (Winter 2002). However, my instructor still teaches it every year and he sent me the current version of the syllabus with a quick note that said the content of the course has not changed at all since I took it with him 8 years ago. Oh- One important thing to note- For the social science requirement, I ended up changing the courses that I used as prereqs to make it easier to find the syllabi. When I applied, I put down two random Anthro courses because I just wanted to use classes that I had received A's in. However, Anthro changes their offerings every year and I figured it would be impossible to find those syllabi and hard for UMich to figure out how to transfer them in. So, instead, I asked if I could use two classes that I took from my undergrad's Economics core. Those classes are the same year after year so, I knew it would be easier to find the syllabi. Plus, since they're just part of the core, I knew that UMich should have similar courses that those classes could transfer in as. Oh, yeah-- One other tip-- I spoke with a lady at Admissions and she advised me to look at their school of humanities and social sciences (I forget the exact name) website. On that website, you can find a full transfer guide for every state that shows what classes are acceptable to transfer into their school. You can look up the colleges that you have attended and see if you took any courses that have already been approved for transfer (in other words, someone else has already transferred to UMich and used those courses). If you've taken any classes on those list, you can try to use them as prereqs instead and that would make the course transfer process a little smoother. It turned out that one of my Econ core courses was on that list so, I could feel more confident that it would be approved for transfer. I hope I'm making sense here. Good luck, Sara!!
