Posted

Crazy it may be as soon as just a few weeks. Nevous/excited! Good luck to everyone and fingers crossed!

Yep. Exactly! I'm both nervous and excited! I'm definitely ready to find out if I've been accepted so I can plan accordingly. 

Hooray it’s October 1, we should have our letters by the end of the month and know either way. T-minus 30 days or less (but hey, who’s counting)

One week down. The count down is on!

I am hoping to know within the next week or two, but we’ll see. Time is definitely dragging now, and I find myself becoming increasingly more nervous. If anyone happens to receive any notifications, please come on and let everyone know to be on the lookout.

I have gone through a whole cycle of emotions. After I completed my application, I was super energized. After realizing how competitive nursing school is, I was nervous. I even went through a period of not being sure I wanted to spend the money to go through the stress of an accelerated program. Now I'm excited again. But I also feel at peace with whatever happens. And yes, before I open my mailbox these days I do take a big breath.

 I'm so glad to have found this thread! I don't know about you guys but whenever my phone buzzes I freak out because I am so anxiously awaiting an email from Chapel Hill. I applied to the BSN program last year but was not accepted (because I was still in a prerequisite class and because I would've been a second-degree student). After a phone call with the director, she encouraged me to apply for the ABSN program with my same essays and extracurriculars. I graduated from NC State in May 2020 with a cumulative 3.7 GPA, all A's for prereqs except B+ for stats and one A&P. I was a bible study leader, Homecoming director, and Alumni Association Student Ambassador. I have my CNA1 and volunteered for a few years as a Pharmacy Assistant at Urban Ministries of Wake County. Not a ton of healthcare experience which makes me nervous. My mom graduated with her BSN from Chapel Hill back in the 90's, UNC is the only school I applied to because it is my dream school. Would love to hear more about you guys! Prayers for all of us 🙂

I’m hoping that we find out any day now!

Agreed. Today the mail didn’t run, but I do hope that they’re mailed out this week. Either way, it should be soon. Ekkk. 

Fingers crossed for all of us!

Posting this here because I know that for the last 2 years I I have been looking at these similar posts as a prospective student! I am a student-athlete and would be unable to pursue nursing school while playing sports, so I majored in kinesiology as a close relative! I have an overall 3.7 GPA but am not sure what my science GPA was calculated as since I had some AP scores waive grades.

I have worked in some public health research, worked as a health sciences department peer mentor at my school, and did various other volunteering events along with playing soccer at my school! I do not have any explicit healthcare experience which is worrisome, but I felt very good about my essays!

The cohort being so large at ~104 seats is slightly comforting. I know this program is so competitive.

Good luck to everyone and hoping we find out soon!

Congrats on applying! It must be very satisfying to be this close. Yes, hopefully in the next couple of days we will find out.

We should be hearing back this week! 

They just let me know that I was accepted! Sent it via email

Just got my acceptance via email! 

Same here! Just got my acceptance! Good luck everyone and congrats to everyone who got in!

Congrats to everyone that received an acceptance email! I was waitlisted, so not the best news, but not a rejection. Trying to stay hopeful for a spot. 

Congratulations to everyone who got accepted 🙂 I was also wait listed, so we will wait and see what happens!
