    OU Traditional BSN Fall 2016

    They accept like ~110-115 people each year in the Traditional program! I think having everything done except that last class will look really good! Do you know what 3000-4000 level class you're going to take? If at OU, I recommend taking World Music if that's available :) It was super easy and fun!

    Hey Megan! The biggest thing they look at is science GPA. They stressed that a lot when I was applying. I remember this handout they gave me at the Pre-Nursing Club a couple of years ago with a pyramid of what they look at in your application. Science GPA was the base, cumulative GPA was next, then # of sciences complete, then # of overall prereqs complete, and then the very top was what school you went to. I got into the OKC campus with a 3.34 Overall and a 3.33 Science GPA, but I was an OU student who had literally every single prereq done and all sciences done except physiology when I submitted the application. It can't hurt to apply, especially because you don't have to take the TEAS or HESI (thank God)! Good luck!!

    OU ABSN 2018 (2017 Applicant)

    Well, I'm a student in the Traditional BSN program, but my cumulative was not very great either and I got in! Your 4.0 science GPA and 4.0 last 60 GPA will look REALLY good. They put heavy emphasis on science GPA, and I'm pretty sure they consider your last 60 GPA more than your cumulative. I have no clue how much emphasis is put on having the degree actually complete by application submission. Good luck, I hope you get in! If not this time, I'd be shocked if not next fall.

    Trauma 1 hospitals in OKC

    It's the only level one trauma center in the whole state! :)

    OKC is more competitive compared to the Lawton campus but not as competitive as the Tulsa one! That campus is small (given that it's in an area about as big as OKC but accept not even half as many people into the traditional program) and newer so it's pretty hard to get into from what I understand. Also, the traditional program isn't so bad! I feel like I'm constantly buried in studying/assignments but I've been doing pretty good and kept up reasonably well with everything. It's definitely way more doable than I thought.

    I'm from Texas too! My whole college experience has been at OU though. It won't hurt you very much, if at all. Even though it's not OU, it will look really good that your prerequisites were done at a research-level university. I've heard the admissions person stress that they prefer the prerequisites done at OU or an "equivalent research-level university". There are plenty of people in the program that did their prerequisites at OSU and got in. And yes, there is a LOT of movement on the waitlist. They admit a lot less ABSNs than BSNs, but less people apply to ABSN I think. For example there are 110ish of us in the Traditional program and I think like 40 in the ABSN program. Either way, if you end up on the waiting list, there's a good chance you'll be offered a spot. I know a good amount of people that got in off the waiting list. Though really, with your high last 60 GPA, and your (I'm assuming) good science GPA, I wouldn't be too worried!! :)

    Hey hayleyreese23, I think the College heavily weighs your last 60 GPA and especially your science GPA. I think the overall GPA is not looked at so much. From what I've heard/seen, ABSN's average admitted GPAs are higher than ours (compared to the Traditional BSN program) but a 3.7 is very good!! Did you do 2 years of pre-reqs at OU? I think you'll get an even bigger advantage in admission then. Good luck!

    @sunshine349, I took MUNM 3113, World Music at OU. It was an extremely easy class. I don't know if they offer it online or over the summer, but I took it in person in the fall and it was bar none the easiest class I've taken so far lol. We met twice a week and had one small presentation, a few small (like pretty informal, 1 or 2 pages) papers, and had to attend one (world music-related) concert and one contra dance in the OKC area. There were a few tests too but they were very easy and required almost no studying. It also counted as my non-western civ credit. Also, I forgot to say it in my last post but happy late birthday! You must've had a killer day yesterday!! :) lol

    Did your friend go to OU??? A while ago I had heard of people here getting off the waiting lists with overall/science GPAs as low as in the upper 2 point range in the middle of summer (usually for Lawton)!

    Nice!! That's almost the exact amount that applied/were admitted the year I was referring to when I posted the GPAs. 129 applied/40 admitted. Kind of low compared to other years I think. The year before that one 197 people applied for 40 spots. I wish we knew the # applied to other campuses as well!! But that seems like a good sign...

    @sunshine349, there's no way to know right now I think @beejayaye, I'm pretty certain it's the GPA they had on the application itself, not the GPA they had when all their prerequisites were done. I don't think they care about your GPA as long as it's above the requirements for the college once your accepted.

    @Taurus87, I asked the nursing advisor why they didn't post GPAs from last year's admission cycle (they used to always posted the GPAs of the last year's applicants & those accepted). She said they took it down because it was deterring people from applying lol. The average overall & science GPAs for OKC was about 3.6 for both for the year before last year, but they accept a range of GPAs because they accept 100+ people a year. Tulsa's was about 3.7 for both overall & science, and Lawton was 3.4 for overall and 3.3 for science. But it all depends on how many people apply each year. Compared to other years I had seen, those GPAs were kind of high.

    Not a personal advisor, just a general advisor for all 3 campuses! I'd post her name but they don't allow names on this forum! They have a pre-nursing major email list at OU so I routinely get emails about the pre-nursing club/pre-nursing advising opportunities on OU's campus.

    The nursing advisor that emailed me has her office at the OUHSC in OKC. Looks like it's really going to be mid April...crazy how much later this is than other years!
