    MUSC ABSN Questions-Spring 2016

    Congrats to both of you! I got my acceptance letter today as well. I'm beyond happy! See you both November 6th!

    Did anyone out there get an acceptance letter? I live downtown and got nothing from them today. Ahhhh. Congrats on being on an alternate Scott! Even though more waiting is probably the last thing you want right now. Best of luck to you!

    I'm so sorry guys! Ah I can't imagine what you must be feeling right now. Except that it is probably a little nice to have an answer so you can begin making other plans. I live downtown and the mail hasn't come yet so I am currently freaking out. But I still appreciate both of you letting us all know. Best of luck to you both with everything!

    @ccurrie88 I live between Meeting and East Bay St. kind of near Trident Palmer campus. Let me know if you have any questions about living downtown, I'd be happy to help! The page that was linked when we submitted our applications (the one that says the status of our transcripts/reference letters) said we should expect to hear 8 weeks after the application deadline. I really hope it's sooner, and I know last year someone heard as early as this week, but there is still the possibility that it'll be the full 8 weeks

    Wow November 6th...that's so soon. I'm just relieved that we'll know our answer by then. I live in Charleston and have for about 3 years (graduated from CofC) and I'm staying put til I get accepted at MUSC haha. Since I'm close to campus, I'll be sure to post on here as soon as I get a letter!

    I'm glad to hear from some more people that applied! I did the same thing as ccurrie88 to find out when we might hear back. I'm also gonna wait for the letter in the mail even though not knowing is driving me crazy. Good luck to you both!

    Thank you for your reply! I just applied to some PCT jobs; hopefully I get one and can let admissions know before decisions are made. How has the first semester been?

    MUSC ABSN Questions-Spring 2016

    I know this is very, very early to be posting this, but I wanted to reach out to the community for some advice before I apply in August. I'll give my stats and then I have some questions. I hope someone can help! I have a 3.5 cumulative gpa and a BS in Public Health from College of Charleston (graduating May 2015.) I have over 200 hours of volunteer experience, 125+ of which are in hospice where I worked very closely with patients. This summer, I am retaking Anatomy to improve my grade as well as taking Microbiology at Trident Tech. My science GPA isn't great, but I have some really good recommendations (I think!) I don't have any hospital or nurse shadowing experience, but I am going to try to squeeze some shadowing in this summer. It was suggested to me that I take an additional science course to serve as my elective since my grades aren't great in the ones that I've taken, so I plan on taking Chemistry in the spring. I am also doing a 6 week CNA program in the late summer. I will be applying for residency soon and should be eligible to apply as an in-state student. So here are my questions, if anyone can help, and please be brutally honest!: 1. Based on my stats, do you think it is feasible that I will get in to the program? Or should I plan on working as a CNA for a year and apply for Fall 2016? 2. Is getting your application in earlier of any importance? I would like to apply after I have finished my CNA course, so it would be cutting it closer to the deadline (late August), but I don't know if it's more important to get the app in early. 3. I want Chemistry to be counted as my science elective instead of Biology because I got a B and C in those courses. But I won't be taking Chemistry until after I apply, will they still take that into consideration? 4. Any suggestions for me to improve my stats? Any suggestions about how to go about nurse shadowing? Is there any faculty at MUSC I can reach out to for help? (I have emailed Mardi Long but she never responded.) Thank you so much!! I'm a little lost and pretty anxious if you can't tell :)
