Southern Maine ABSN 2021

Posted

Hey guys im starting this thread an an opportunity for all of us applying to talk about the process & ask questions

Little bit about me-

This is my first time applying to this program. I live in California, got my bachelors in Kinesiology from Chico State. My overall GPA is around 3.7 ( I havent done the complete calculation because I have completed courses at 4 different colleges and still have some in progress. )

Stats- B

Anatomy-A

Physio-B

Micro-B

Chem-B

Psyc- A

Human Dev- A

Sadly, most of my prereq classes are Bs, I'm hoping my other supplemental information will hold me up.

Good luck to us all!

This makes me nervous to apply LOL. I graduated this Summer with a BA in Politics from UCSC and a 3.6 GPA. I only have Stats completed so far (with a B) and have all other prerequisites either in progress or planned, and have no health care experience. Your chances sound pretty good based on the requirements!

I'm not sure how competitive I am since I have a bit of a lower GPA than I think they typically go for, but hoping that my all As in my prereqs and that I've worked in mental health and abroad will help me. I saw that a lot of people heard mid-November last year. Fingers crossed we get results that early again this year!

Hi everyone! I applied to this program as well! Eagerly waiting to hear back! Has anyone heard anything? 

I just got an email this morning offering me a spot on the waitlist, which I accepted. Good luck to everyone else!

I was waitlisted as well--I received the email a few hours after posting here. I am also accepting my spot. I'm really hoping to be admitted in the Spring. I applied to a few different types of programs and this is my first choice for ABSN programs. Good luck to the rest of you and congratulations to anyone who was accepted!

I also got waitlisted, but plan on declining. I got a spot in another ABSN.

Which program were you accepted to, if you don't mind sharing? I haven't heard back from any other programs so I am just curious

Congratulations! 👏🏼👏🏼

Has anyone else on the waitlist received their rank? I'm wondering what the general consensus is in terms of which ranks are realistically reachable

I am ranked 17 and not accepting my spot because I got into a masters program so anyone ranked after that can bump their number up by 1😊
