    Raising GPA

    I would go the CC route if you have already taken all of their pre-reqs. I took pre-reqs at a university and applied to the local BSN program and was rejected purely because my GPA (3.1) was too low (everyone else had a 3.7 and above that was accepted). At least in my city, it's easier to get into the ARN program than it is the BSN. After I get my associate's I plan to do my BSN online for a year and hopefully go on to specialize and get a doctorates, god willing.
  2. I plan to do an RN-BSN program online for a year, but even though the classes are all online it is through a brick and mortar medical school in my city. Do you still get to attend the graduation ceremony with the accelerated BSN nursing students?

    MUSC ABSN Fall of 2015

    @carusomk: I have a 3.1 GPA and over 100 hours of volunteer and work experience. I don't have a degree of any sort. They told me I scored perfectly on every part of the application but that my GPA just wasn't high enough compared to the competition. If you don't have at least a 3.5 I recommend saving the $100 application fee and applying to other programs. I'm starting Trident in the fall and I'll try to do my RN to BSN online at MUSC, USC or Francis Marion. That's a cheaper route for me to go anyway.

    MUSC ABSN Fall of 2015

    My letter wasn't in the mail and I couldn't take the wait so I called in and found out I didn't get accepted Apparently I scored perfectly on every aspect of the application but my science and cumulative GPA just wasn't high enough compared to everyone else's. I'm a little bummed out but maybe I'm meant to be at Trident since they gave me a chance. Good luck to everyone else!

    Thanks! Good luck to you also :) I think everything happens for a reason so where ever we are meant to be we will end up

    I only applied to MUSC and Trident because a lot of the other schools had requirements that I don't meet.

    Thanks for calling y'all! I've called so much that I don't want to keep bothering them. I'm also too nervous to hear over the phone in case it's bad news. I'm volunteering with Hospice for the first time today so I won't be able to check the mail until 4:30-5. I'm over in West Ashley about 7 miles from downtown so if it was mailed yesterday I should get it today or tomorrow, maybe saturday at the latest. Ahhhh I'm so nervous about everything right now! If I don't get in this time I'll probably reapply for the spring and I don't think I can handle this waiting game again. It's so intense

    Whenever I called they said they wouldn't say anything over the phone so I'm guessing they don't want the phone lines tied up. I heard some people in old threads say that if you call and ask for Shelly drake after letters have been mailed out she will tell you. Not sure if she still does though

    By the way I'm surprised they only accepted 1 person out of state from priority and I know who that is! They were in my micro class this semester. How lucky to be the only one accepted for priority!

    38 in state and 26 out of state already accepted makes 64. That means they can only accept like 16 more unless they make the cohort larger I think

    I just called and they said the board met at the end of last week and letters should be in the mail next week!

    What does not offered mean? Does that mean they haven't made a decision either way for those applications?
