Hey there guys! I just received my acceptance letter yesterday from WGU to start July 1! If anybody is interested in being study buddies let me know!

Congratulations!! How long after you submitted your application did it take to get a response? 

Thank you! I want to say their normal turn around time is 1-2 months after you submit your app. I can’t really remember when I submitted my application but they took longer than 2 months to tell me because of COVID because they didn’t even know if they were going to be able to continue operating.

Congrats!! And good luck!

@Nursingistheultimategoal how long did it take you to hear back after you applied. I'm hoping to get into the indianapolis feb 21 class (if it doesnt get pushed pack).

My advisor has been super helpful, but she left the company and I just got a new one. My prerequisites took me a while because I didn't have all of the prerequisites. I am finishing my last class and then I will take my TEAS. She said that I should have my requirements in by the first week of nov as they will select 2-3 months in advance. Im super excited. 

It took less than  two months after my transcript evaluation. Having a good advisor is super helpful! It made the difference for me.

Congrats! Which area did you apply to?

Has anyone else been notified for Houston? I’m still waiting to hear back and I’m starting to get REALLY anxious. I emailed my admissions counselor but I think she’s tired of me projecting my anxiety onto her at this point. 😆

I’ve never been the most patient person.  

Update: I got accepted for the Dec cohort start date! Let me know if you guys decide to make any chats or group me's so we can all connect. Congratulations to everyone who has been admitted. 

Congrats. long did it take you to hear back? 

I finished my application in early Sept. They typically start selecting students about 6-8 weeks from the start date you’re applying for. I know they have selected everyone for the Nov and Dec cohorts. As far as I know, they only pick about 10 students to be in each cohort. The next cohort for Houston is January and then April, I believe. So you want to make sure you have everything submitted as soon as possible before those dates so you can have a fair shot. 

I’m not the most competitive student by any means, so I’m actually really grateful to be accepted to this program this time around. After speaking with some of the reps at the school and my admissions counselor, it’s definitely a lot more competitive than people think. Because they’re not selecting as many students and they want to ensure they make adequate selections.

Perfect. I am actually applying for the indianapolis,  IN cohort. I was told to have everything in by early next month to be entered into the pool of applicants for the Feb 1st cohort. I am just waiting to take my TEAS Nov 2. They still haven't opened up the registration for that. My counselor said I should be OK on timing. Wish me luck. They keep pushing back start dates here.

Dang, that sucks! Is that the earliest you can take the test? They aren’t offering it remotely? They pushed a couple start dates back here as well when COVID happened. They didn’t have enough people apply one time, so they cancelled the cohort. Hopefully you get everything together in time. 

I don't mind the date. They are doing remote tests, but I needed time to review... I was a bit rusty on a few things. I would rather get a good score the first time, if possible.
