    Hey i’m also a rising senior applying to colleges this year for nursing.

    schools i’m interested in:
    - University of Minnesota
    - Florida Southern College
    -University of NC-Chapel Hill
    - University is NC-Wilmington
    - NCA&T

    i’m looking for some other schools if anyone has any suggestions!!!

    Also i do not think the intensity or complexity of the college app system for direct admit will change. But i heard that a lot of international students aren’t coming back because of travel restrictions.

    Hello! I'n also a rising senior planning to apply for the Nursing Major as a direct admit. Some schools I have in mind are UCLA, UC Irvine, San Diego State University, CSU Fullerton, and looking into more but the rest of the CSUs or UCs aren't direct nursing. :neutral: As for your question on how hard it will be to get in, many of the direct entry nursing schools are very competitive. For example, UCLA only accepts 50 freshmen and 10 transfers every year and last year they had more than 3,000 applications to the nursing major. The same goes with UC Irvine, who also only has a 2% acceptance rate for Nursing. Those are just two examples but many universities have the same stats. We really have to impress them with our essays and experiences in the healthcare. UC Irvine has a specific section in their selection process for that. We should keep in touch haha!

    Hi @sammy147519 @wheresmyboba great to hear from some fellow nursing majors trying to get into these Cali schools!
    "We really have to impress them with our essays and experiences in the healthcare. UC Irvine has a specific section in their selection process for that."
    I completely agree as the essays are vital to securing a spot in these selective programs. Check out this article too: https://www.usnews.com/education/best-graduate-schools/top-nursing-schools/articles/how-coronavirus-is-affecting-nursing-school-admissions
    Also, what is the specific section for UC Irvine? They got rid of their supplemental too.
    Also the CSUs are going test blind.

    Hi! For UC Irvine I am not sure? I was looking up if they take letter of recs, and i noticed that the nursing supplemental is not a thing anymore? Do you know if they take letter of recs? I'm guessing we just apply normal and put nursing for our major, not too sure lol. Also thank you for telling us about CSU going test blind, that makes me SO MAD THOUGH. Best of luck guys we got this!

    hi @sammy147519 UC Irvine is basically a regular UC application. UCLA has all of the LOR and supplements. Hopefully @wheresmyboba can comment on this-especially the UC Irvine "specific section in their selection process for that." Do not stress too much about all of this because no matter what school we go to we will be nurses in the near future!
