    I just applied for ACC BSN @ MUSC spring 2014. I was wondering if anyone knows when I should expect to hear back from them. I do not qualify for priority admission. I just want to know if I should keep taking classes while I wait (fall 2013) or if I should just work and save money ... Any information would be greatly appreciated!
    The deadline is Sept 15 so you probably shouldn't expect to hear before at least the end of October.. I applied this past spring and deadline was mid January and did not hear until the 3rd week of march. Just depends on how many applicants they have to sort through!

    Hello everyone!
    I will be applying to MUSC in December for the Fall 2014 program. I have no volunteer hours BUT I am a CNA and have a job at a hospital as a CNA and safety sitter and log anywhere from 24-40 hours a week so by the time I apply I will be around 500 or so hours there. I am taking 3 out of the 4 pre-rec classes this Fall that is why I am waiting till december to apply. Also, I am out of state.. My cum. GPA is about a 3.1 due to a failed course. Im not sure what my pre-rec or science GPA will be since I am still taking those classes. Any hints on what I can do to improve my chances? I know my GPA isn't ideal.. but I am so passionate and determined to do this I could use all the helpful tips I can get!! Thanks everyone!

    Hey! I'm an undergrad seeking my BSN and I was wondering if any MUSC nurses could tell me about how many (if any) undergrads are in their clinical rotations and classes? I had a friend tour who said they typically discourage undergrads, but I just love the city of Charleston so much! The website says about 20% are undergrads, but I'm sure that's just a roundabout number. Thanks!
