    CSUS Fall '11 Hopefuls....??

    one more thing, is anyone out there finding themselves having to add on additional upper division GE requirements (in particular the 9 units that MUST be completed in residence at CSUS) to their already intense nursing schedule? I'm stressing b/c I have to take Pharm in Fall '11 + 2 GE classes per my counselor's advice at the transfer orientation.

    CSUS Fall '11 Hopefuls....??

    does anyone know if our clinical assignment locations will remain the same for entire 2 years in BSN program or do they change each semester? also, I saw some postings regarding special interest in a clinical assignment at Veteran's. I wasn't sure if there were particular advantages/disadvantages in one clinical assignment over another. I expected all clinical experiences to be the same regardless of location...is this not true? thanks!

    SFSU 2011 applicants

    though May 9th was the initial deadline for those accepted to submit a letter of intent, the CSUS nursing dept is following up this week with accepted applicants that they have not yet heard back from to get a decision. the lady in the dept said that a final decision must be submitted to the nursing dept by May 16 before they start to give spots away to those on the waiting list. So definitely after the 16th maybe those waitlisted can expect to hear back from the nursing dept..so fyi.

    CSULB Nursing Interview Fall 2011!!!

    oh..by the way, i didn't get rejected from CSUSB. they just haven't made any sort of decision yet in regards to FAll '11 admission. CSUSB nurse dept said decisions won't be made until mid-july.

    CSULB Nursing Interview Fall 2011!!!

    I think what is most upsetting is the letter I received today in the mail from CSULB saying I was denied b/c my stats were NOT as good as those admitted into the 90 spots for Fall '11. don't get me wrong-i have NO problem if someone more qualified from the original 120 who interviewed in March were accepted, but I think we all know on this forum that that was NOT the case......CSULB should be honest in the letters they are sending out by saying, sorry but you were not as qualified as the top 25 transfers who got in. that would be more correct than saying everyone who got called back for the 2nd application process in mid-April is more qualified than all of us who interviewed in March. its' not fair for CSULB to pretend that all the 120 interviewees were considered for the 90 spots b/c we all know that is not the case.....the 120 interviewees were only considered for the 25 transfer spots...it's insulting to say otherwise.

    CSULB Nursing Interview Fall 2011!!!

    hey beachbedhead - do you think CSU's will be accepting external transfers in spring? i have applied to CSUSB for Fall '11 but when i called nursing dept to ask when we'd hear back from them they said they wouldn't make any decisions until mid-july when Spring '11 grades are in. that is WAY too long to wait for me esp. b/c i have to make arrangements ahead of time to move, etc. if needed. also, i had preferred to start a 2-yr program instead of a 3-yr program in order to keep costs down, and i know CSUSB & CSULA are 3-yr programs, right? and no way would i apply to UCLA b/c they're website said slots are extremely limited for external transfers, which was a major understatement b/c UCLA ended up only accepted 1 external transfer (non-RN) into their BSN program for Fall 11.

    CSUS Fall '11 Hopefuls....??

    not to be a "downer" but does anyone think that what happened at CSULB for Fall 11 admissions will happen at CSUS. i.e. CSULB at the last minute (about a week before they said they would post who was accepted into the program) decided to significantly cut the number of external transfers who could be admitted into their BSN program due to budge cuts. out of the original 90 spots available for their incoming class, only 25 spots were given to external transfers w/ the rest of the spots allowed for their students only. Further, only CSULB students could be put on the waitlist. I just can't imagine how CA budget cuts can affect one CSU BSN admission so much while not affecting others as well during the same admissions cycle. ...just saying this b/c I'm sure lots of us have an idea of where we stand in our chances of getting into CSUS based on Fall 10 stats, but that may not be the case this time...i hope not. i guess we'll find out tommorrow....

    CSULB Nursing Interview Fall 2011!!!

    yeh..with everything that happened this application cycle, i can NOT rely on the presumption that CSULB will allow any transfers in for the fall 12 cycle. so in the year b/w now and then, and since I have no nursing prereq's remaining, i will go ahead and try to improve my TEAS score but also take prereq's into a bio/pre-med major so if i don't get into the nursing program, i think my grades will be good enough to get me into a bio major in fall 12 and then i'll just pursue the pre-med route. i did want to be a nurse, but if CSU nursing has increasingly uncertain admissions which will only get worse as the economy worsens, at least i can be a doctor b/c med school admissions at UC's will always be open equally to all CA residents which is nice....i mean, no one can guarantee that the CSU nursing programs will not close admissions entirely to transfers in the next few cycles. i am still waiting for a decision from CSUS - where statistics from fall 10 implied i had a VERY good chance to get in for sure if all spots into their program were open competitively to everyone. but CSUS admission has been dead quiet since their application deadline, so i have a very bad feeling that what happened at CSULB has happened there...meaning i will not have gotten into any school....guess i'm just trying to plan for the inevitable. beachbedhead, did you get into any CSU BSN program aside from the one at CSULB?

    CSULB Nursing Interview Fall 2011!!!

    yeh - super bad timing i guess. i heard last spring '11 admissions, transfer got in w/ lower stats b/c they allowed transfers in at the last minute. i didn't apply at that time b/c i still had speech IP but i should've just applied anyway b/c i probably would have gotten in. who knew they would only accept an unprecedented 25 only transfer students for fall '11. had i known that, i would have retaken my TEAS exam and improved my score but i thought w/ a 4.0GPA i would get in for sure. i see on this post that those w/ less GPA got in b/c they had higher TEAS scores than me. i would probably reapply for fall '12 if i knew that they would for sure reopen up ALL 90 spots to transfer students, but w/ the CA budget situation, who knows? maybe no transfers at all accepted in that cycle which would leave me out in the cold again.

    by the way....the list posted is preliminary and it says that remaining students will be added to list after interviews are conducted, presumingly by CSULB students....

    CSULB Nursing Interview Fall 2011!!!

    hey guys - bummer, i just found out that i did NOT get into the CSULB BSN program it doesn't appear that they have a waitlist, at least for transfers, so either they will take less students if the accepted decline or the waitlist will be made up of CSULB students. maybe someone can verify this later. for transfers, if you want to find out if an admission decision had been made & if you got in, call the automated CSULB phone number (562-985-2500). if a decision has been made & you've been accepted, it will tell you so congrats! if a decision and automated system does not tell you what it is, then call 562-985-5471 to find out for sure. this is what i did. good luck to all! unfortunately for me, I've used up all my backup plans. had a 9.33 (4.0 GPA) as CSULB applicant and was rejected....also rejected from other CSU's also. don't think i can wait another year to reapply again.....oh well....
