To those of you wondering about being waitlisted.. I’m currently in the program and was waitlisted originally. Unfortunately they do not send another email and they will not tell you where you are on the waitlist. What I can tell you is this: the original email informing me I was waitlisted seemed fairly positive, I rsvpd for my waitlist spot immediately, and I received an invitation the following Monday. It can happen very fast. Other people were invited up until the Friday before orientation. I know how you feel, but there are several people in our cohort who were initially waitlisted. Good luck and congrats to those of you who’ve accepted.

If it's alright to ask, how many of your cohort is still enrolled in the nursing program? I'm trying to not psych myself out before May 😅 Are you happy you chose UCF?

Thanks for clarifying about the emails! This gives me a bit of hope.

After getting background checks and fingerprinting, does our advisor send us info about where to do the drug screening or does that come after background checks are accepted? I am a little worried about if I should just go do it myself or if I am to wait until they send us more info soon

Also, has anyone received the follow up email regarding the MoA after they RSVP'd? I got an email right after the invitation with the Castlebranch background/fingerprinting stuff, but haven't heard back since the RSVP. The way the email is worded, the drug test information is part of the MoA. They said it has to be signed and sent in by a specific date, so I want to make sure I don't miss any deadlines.

I haven’t received anything after I sent in my RSVP. Are you going to send another email just to make sure you did RSVP?

I emailed Charlenne and she said the rest of the information with the MoA and drug screening will come within the next few weeks!

Hi everyone,

I received the waitlist email, I RSVP'd but didn't hear back so I emailed twice with my RSVP and asking what my position was on the waitlist. Yesterday I received 2 emails, one saying they received my RSVP, and the other re-stating they received my RSVP and that they don't provide any info about position on the waitlist, however they encourage me to apply to a concurrent program as well.

 

Based on what I've read on previous message boards this sounds a lot like the dreaded "alternative options" email. Can anyone weigh in on what this might mean?

 

I didn't do the best on the TEAS test, only took it once and barely scored above the minimum requirement. I guess I wasn't aware of the importance placed on the TEAS score above other things like GPA. I also am an alumnus which I thought might help my chances. My Stats are:

 

Undergrad cumulative GPA: 3.75

Science Pre-Reqs- 4.0

Other Pre-Reqs- 3.8

TEAS: 78.7

 

Has anyone heard back from the waitlist? If so, what are your stats?

 

Thanks! & Congrats to all who were accepted (:

Hi everyone! 

Does anyone know about a facebook group being made for this cohort? I know its a little early but I don't live on Orlando and really want to start figuring out where to live and potential roommates.

Congrats to all! I can't wait to meet everyone :)

Does anyone know if we are supposed to register for the general orientation if we were not previously UCF students?

Hi! I have been placed on the waitlist as well. When I first saw the email I RSVP my spot. I called the nursing office at UCF and asked if they were going to send out a follow up email regarding the RSVP, and she told me that she doesn't, but the lady in the front looked up my name and saw I RSVP to make sure I was on the list. On March 12th, I got an email saying "Thank you for the RSVP and that it has been received". I reply back saying thank you and haven't heard back. I didn't get an email regarding "Other options" yet... I hope this helps!! 

My stats are: 

Undergrad GPA: 3.33

Sci Pre-Reqs: 4.0 

Other Pre-Reqs: 3.8

TEAS: 85.6
