    Oh man! I'm sorry. Do you have other good options? Thanks for posting right away so the rest of us can ready ourselves for the emotional roller coaster. If you didn't get in, I am not holding my breath.

    I'm waiting for USA's letter, but I feel I don't have that much hope now..I applied two months before the deadline so maybe that's why I got rejected, who knows..

    Well, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you get in USA. You got this!!

    I wish they'd give some reason, so you know. It must be that they are incredibly impacted or doing them in order of submission- in which case I am definitely out of the running. Maybe you could ask them why they decided against you? Maybe USA is using a different process where that gpa means more.
    When I was reading other threads I saw one from someone really dejected about a rejection titled "Is it really this hard to get into grad school"?
    Lots of people replied about how they re-applied and got in the next semester or took classes as a non-degree student, also other online schools to try, etc.
    Once the impact wears off a bit, you should check it out.
    I'm crossing my fingers for USA for you.

    Just got my rejection for the FNP with a form to reapply for the Spring. I also have a 3.99, gushing letters of reference, 10 years of experience minus some child-rearing time, and have been told I write well. I did submit my application right before the deadline, so that probably counted against me since so many highly qualified people are applying.
    I did already register for my second choice, which has more on-campus time and is 7 units longer, a serious difficulty for me in my remote area, so I will probably start there and weigh reapplying to UAB.
    I'm disappointed but not as crushed as I would have been without the heads up from those of you who heard first.
    Thanks for that and good luck to the rest of you.

    I guess I'll be the first to say I got a packet in the mail for part time. I don't know if I want to ask if I can go full time. I want to finish and not drag on and on, but I also want to be able to really focus and absorb everything. I was in state with a competitive GPA on the last 60 hours, either 3.8 or 3.9 depending on how you calculate it and I took the GRE anyway. So, they have actually put them in the mail. =)
