    I also started a Facebook group since our class does not have one yet! I think this is a better way for all of us to get to know each other and a great way for us to study and help each other as well! :) facebook.com/groups/587882454569367

    These prices are based on one semester... it's a lot more to live on campus. They gave me an estimate of ~6000 more per year. My financial aid could not help cover it all. So, I think it's a better idea to live off campus.

    This is for if you are living on campus, in the apartments. (You can't stay in the dorms if you are over 21, I believe) Huckins Apartments 1 bedroom / 1 bath (Shared BR) $ 2,275 Independence Village Apartments 2 bedroom / 1 bath (Private BR) $ 3,320 2 bedroom / 2 bath (Shared BR) $ 2,490 Farris Hall 2 bedroom / 2 bath (Private BR/BA) $ 3,520 3 bedroom / 3 bath (Private BR/BA) $ 3,320 4 bedroom / 4 bath (Private BR/BA) $ 3,140 I will be putting a deposit down to hold an apartment. I found out today, that the availability will be very little and there is already a waiting list. I will be putting it down for Turtle Creek since it is closer to the school, cheapest option, and it is a safer neighborhood (other complexes are income based and are not as safe).

    I just looked at apartments today. I'm trying to decide if living off campus or on campus is a good idea.

    @acadena I actually did really well on the PSB, but still didn't get in

    Constructing a backup plan if I don't get in...

    By the way, @texas_t, they don't look at overall GPA, they look at the overall pre reqs. I have no idea what my pre-req only GPA is. I've taken a lot of classes because I was a pre-PT major so some of those classes brought my gpa down.

    My science is a 3.56 and a 3.38 for overall as well. ****** said that all 100 spots in the program have been filled and that they are only looking for alternate spots for rolling admissions. I'm just hoping for an alternate spot because some that DO get accepted might not go to Texas state if they get accepted into a better program elsewhere, that's where alternates come in. Good luck to you!!

    Thanks Katie. The school actually came on here and POSTED. I feel like its way too much. I am considering the adn bridge to BSN. I hope that doesn't hurt me if I decide to go for an msn.

    I think that's what I'll do. What sucks is that I have EVERYTHING done as in pre reqs. The adn program doesn't even need all of those classes. I would do the bridge though if I go the adn route.

    The minimum is 2.5 and 3.0 science. You have to make an 80 or higher on the reading portion of your teas v for them to even look at your grades and stuff. I think people were applying at 3.5 gpa and higher. Im more worried about TWU and uta because their students are applying at 3.7+ As for classes you are allowed (I think) 18 hours total left before starting nursing school. You have to get it done prior to the start date. I spoke with the SON advisor, ******, when I went to go turn in my app, she said they've already filled 100 spots but are accepting rolling admissions for alternate spots only. She told me not to get my hopes up too much. Good luck to you too.

    @classicdame I would LOVE to get accepted into UT, but everyone around here knows getting into UT nursing program is like winning the lottery!!! Weel, for me getting in IS winning the lottery! I just feel a lot of people are going to have a much higher GPA getting in.

    Thank you for your feedback. I'm still waiting on Texas state to respond to me. Earlier in March I already got the "regret to inform you..." letter so now I feel like I am desperate! If I don't get in to the BSN program, I would probably just do the ADN to BSN program. This shouldn't affect me if I decide to get a masters in the future I hope... Again, thanks for your response, it did make me feel a lot better. :loveya:

    Constructing a backup plan if I don't get in...

    Stephalump: thanks a lot! I think after a few hours, I was thinking it through and I told myself I will only accept getting in to a university... I've looked through the forum and it seems that ADN's in my area aren't having much luck getting hired... I messed up my first 2 years in school, I didn't know what I wanted to do yet, I come from a very strict family and I sort of went nuts when I moved out. The last 2 years I've been playing "catch-up" and I've never worked so hard in my life to make good grades. I have debilitating migraines too and have lost 3 semesters worth of classes because I literally could not leave my closet... hopefully I can get in. I know I am ready for this. Thanks for your comment again.
  15. I have applied for rolling admissions for Texas State in Round Rock, TX... They let you know by June 22 if you're in or you're out. I know that they only accept 100 total students for their program so I'm not even sure how spots are left for rolling admissions! I'm freaking out and scared out of my mind but still trying to keep my hopes up... I've constructed a back up plan if I cannot get into a university, I would try to get my ADN at a community college (brookhaven) first then get my RN to BSN through online at UTA or something. another backup is West Coast University.. They just opened one in Dallas and school started this spring for them. My main concern is their accreditation is ACICS, I'm not familiar with that one but I haven't heard many good things about it... What do you guys think? also: the $$$$, apparently it's $130,000 to be in their program from start to finish, but I've already got all my prereqs done so that cuts out one year, so for me it would be roughly $86,000. Anyone have any information on this school? I tried talking to the advisor but she kept pushing me to attend the information sessions and didn't answer my questions straightforwardly. I want this so bad, I know this is what I am meant to do... I just feel like I'm gonna fall...

    Texas State Round Rock Fall 2012

    Wow guys!! Congratulations on getting accepted!!! I unfortunately did not make the cut... So I am reapplying for rolling admissions!! I think I spent half the day crying when I got the rejection letter. It's been horrifying. Now I gotta wait some more.
