Maybe you all can relate or provide some calming thoughts. Or maybe I need to stay off CC and stop worrying. I feel like nursing is just full of rejections for well deserving kids.
My D22 is looking at mostly direct admit nursing programs with the exception of JMU. Her stats:
3.98 UW GPA
No rank, top 10 decile.
No test scores yet and realistically probably low 1200’s, unlikely to submit. Will graduate with 4 APs and 16 honors classes.
-In school ECs-
Varsity state level swimmer
Link Crew Leader
Social Media Chair-Coalition for Social Justice
Peer group buddy for kids with special needs
Special Olympics swim coach
Girls on the Run junior coach
Volunteer/shadow Physical Therapy clinic
Lifeguard summers since 9th grade
Her math courses will conclude with AP Calc AB and a semester of CP Stats. She has taken H Phys Sci, H Bio, H Chem, AP Bio and will take Advanced A&P next year.
I know worrying about admittance is wasted energy but I can’t seem to shake it.
I feel like there are no safety school options that meet her other criteria for college. Did many of your children have back up majors or were they nursing or bust? Thanks for any thoughts, advice or commiseration.
