CONGRATULATIONS DenverHopeful and Lindsey14 and to all those accepted for June 2011 classes. I am so excited for you all!! So you all know that someone like me was going to come post some questions for you all, so here I am! LOL.

So currently I have an overall gpa of 3.8 and so far I have a 4.0 in my science courses (I have only taken BIO 201) I am currently taken Mat 135 and BIO 202&204. I am going to apply next month, April 1st for the next round of classes (in 2012) and right now I am beyond freaking out because I want to be accepted soooo bad, but am not sure of how to make my application stand out. I am really worried about three W's in A&P and one in MAT 135 sticking out like a sore thumb on my transcript. I became very sick during a semester, had to be hospitalized, and missed so much that my only option was to withdraw or take a very low D (yikes!) The following semester I was so optimistic, I took A&P again with MAT 135 only to have health complications again. Looking back I should have taken a break during that semester to recooperate but whats done is done. In your opinion, do you think that will hinder my chances of getting in? Are there ways I can make my app stand out to outshine the W's? I currently have no volunteer hours but I can this week if need be...I can go on and on, but please let me know what you guys thin/suggest I should do.

Thank you so very much and congratulations again!

Hi Ms. Dre... thank you!!

Okay for me, I don't know how they would look at the W's. I imagine that it happens a lot and if you are retaking them and get As, that is the best you can do and I would not worry beyond that, it helps nothing. You have great GPAs so keep that up and next just really focus on that essay. I took a lot of time on my essay. I would write it and come back to it later and tweak it. I read it aloud a lot to make sure it sounded the way I thought it did in my head. I spent time making sure my grammar was perfect and I made it concise. I tried to make every sentence meaningful with no fluff. One page for 3 points is tough! I started out with 2 pages and over time, whittled it down to less than 1 (I could have fit a few more lines by the time I was finished), but it was more meaningful at the end than it was at 2 pages.

As you answer the ?s think about what traits help a nurse to excel at her profession and talk about how you have learned those traits in your life. Use examples.

This is just my opinion and I wish you luck as you complete your prereqs and get ready to apply!! :yeah:

There will be another spot opening up for someone on the waitlist because I'm going to decline my addmission to the accelerated program. I'm sad because I know it would be awesome however, I live in Oregon. I applied to 2 schools here in Oregon and 1 in Colorado to up my chances. I was only going to move if Colorado was my only option, luckily I received an acceptance letter from a school here. I own a home and have a 4 year old so it would have been tough to up-root our lives, but I was willing to do it if necessary, I know it would have been a great adventure :) good luck to all of you at UC Denver!

Good for you!! I can completely understand. I did not apply out of state b/c I cannot uproot my family so I am grateful it worked out.... and it did for you too!! Good luck to you!

Hello all,

I was looking into applying to CU Denvers Accelerated BSN program. I know it is competitive, but just how competitive is it?? What do they look for besides good grades?? I would appreciate any insight you could give me and congrats on getting accepted.

They look at:

1. Grades

2. Prereq grades

3. Grades

And they might glance at the 1 page essay...

Hi DenverHopeful,

I have another question for you...again! lol. I am writing my essay for admission now, and I am a bit stuck. My question is what do you think they are looking for in the essay? I have read a lot of previous postings saying how diverstiy is key. Is that so? I am just wreaking my brains over this because I really want it to shine you know? So again, any advice you can offer would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you
