uic 2011 bsn

just wanted to start a thread for those who want to talk about applying or having already been accepted into the 2011 UIC nursing program.

Hey, just wanted to respond to your thread I and say ive been wait listed. I got an email saturday morning. Any news for you?

Sorry about being wait listed. I've read a few posts on this web site where people have been wait listed and eventually got in due to somebody dropping or was unable to finish all needed requirements. So there is hope. I did get in fortunately and I hope everything works out and u do too.

I'm trying to be optimistic.... To be honest I'm surprised I even got waitlisted. My GPA wasnt too hot but I do have a lot of life experience and my essays were top notch. I did read one post that said on average they get about 1/3 of the way down the waitlist. We'll see! Hope for the best!

I am a current BSN junior at UIC. I know waiting sucks I would check my mail/ e-mail every day for WEEKS, but if anyone has any questions about the program/ what to expect their junior year let me know!

Good luck to everyone!

I got put on the waiting list also :( it sucks because i'm so impatient. i guess i still have some hope though..

just wondering, but what other nursing programs did everyone also apply to besides UIC?

I am currently registered to start nursing school in the fall at Aurora University. I've heard a lot of great things about their nursing program but I'm really hoping I get that call or email from UIC. what about you me-ah, have you applied anywhere else?

I applied to NIU and elmhurst too. unfortunately i got denied from NIU. so i'm hoping i get a call soon from UIC too. hopefully soon *crosses fingers*

Just like most of you I am being wait listed as well. :(

J.black....you said you read a post which says they choose 1/3 students from the wait list ...i was wondering where is that post? i never found any such posts on the UIC's page. Tx

It was a post from last year. I saw it about a month ago.

Just wanted to check in with everybody. I've been in contact with Miss Fern and she did confirm that this is the first year that the college of nursing is using a lottery system for the waitlist. She also informed me that in past years they have gotten as far as halfway down the wait-list. Good luck everyone!

I applied to NIU and elmhurst too. unfortunately i got denied from NIU. so i'm hoping i get a call soon from UIC too. hopefully soon *crosses fingers*

Can I ask what you GPA is? I am very interested in NIU.

Hi!

It was mentioned that one of the times that ppl on the waitlist get called about any open spots is May 1st... I was just wondering if anyone on the waitlist has hear anything yet?

I emailed Ms. Fern yesterday and she informed me that the earliest that wait-listed students would hear anything is the second week in May. That's all the info I've got.

Thanks. I'm so anxious!

I just wanted to give you all on the waitlist some hope. I just graduated from UIC last week. I was accepted off the waiting list one week before classes began! I was all ready to start at another nursing school, but I dropped everything when I got into UIC and it has been the best two years of my life! Do not give up hope. They do take people off the waitlist up until the week before classes begin. People drop out or don't finish their pre-req's and believe it or not, UIC is not everyone's first choice & they might get a call from their first choice & drop out of UIC. I got a phone call letting me know about my acceptance, but I think that was because it was so close to the first day of school & they needed an answer right away. Keep checking your emails, it may just happen for you too!!! Good luck!

Thanks for the hope. It is really hard to be waiting. I am working on going elsewhere but I would definitely drop it all for UIC. I guess there is still hope until right before classes start.

has anyone on the waitlist got accepted yet?

nope. I was told that this year less than 10 people decined acceptance and those spots were filled in may. & that UIC did not expect many people to drop out this year. Hopefully they are wrong and some spots open up. :(

I got put on the waiting list also :( it sucks because i'm so impatient. i guess i still have some hope though..

If you're impatient, perhaps nursing isn't the right choice for you
