    OMG wow... that is terrible!! I came in a 9:45 ish and there were not a lot of people really in front of me at that point. I wonder if it was steady the whole 3 days or just a trickle of people. We didn't know about the lottery thing and advisement never mentioned it so maybe everyone thought the way that we did that it was first come first served and there are not 100's of people applying for the same 70ish spots???

    Nobody knew that we would be placed in a lottery. Even last week they told me it is going to be first come first served.

    I was done at 10:15 and I think there was more than 50 people there (I stopped counting after 40).

    Yes, I heard about that incident yesterday from some of the faculty. They told me that the nursing advisors were giving "bad information" (her words) and the administraton was upset about folks lined up outside the building Monday morning when they arrived... when actually, they have partnerships to place first and then everyone else will be "randomized"... which I verified meant "drawn out of a hat".

    How many will be randomized?, I asked.
    One faculty member said, we're not aloud to say... another whispered to me "too many to count".

    I don't know if you guys realize this but the MCCDNP placements were on Tuesday. I'm sure there were some "spillover" applicants (me included) from that on Weds and Thurs.

    There is no harm in applying so please continue your efforts... you could win the golden ticket!... what a system! :chuckle

    I was finished at around 10:30 and there couldn't have been more than 15 people behind me. The hall was kinda small but I'd say it would have looked crazy crowed if there were much more than 50 do ya think?

    Well I for one did not place all my eggs in the Gateway bucket. I applied at Central Arizona too and had my interview with them on Monday as well. They told me if I was not placed in Janaury it would for sure be August so I am just waiting on the "placement" letter at this point.

    Haha, I know because I was the second in line (came at 2 AM).
    If we all get in I'm nominating Glina as the class president!...

    and she didn't leave until 10:15am!... oh yes, you'll have my vote!!!

    Glina wants to be an LPN more than anyone I know... I'm already beginning her campaign.

    Oh No! You poor thing!!!! Yeah, these people need to get with it! They need to make sure everyone has the correct information....

    I actually counted before I went in, so before 10. I counted people when they moved us from one side of the hall to other. I was standing second in line, so I counted as people passed by me.

    Yeah, Im not working either...but I have a job interview today at 4pm. Sometimes Im not sure why I'm on here....Im not even actively in school. Im strongly considering going the private route though(when I do go to school). I just don't think I can or want to finish up pre'req's over a years time and then sit on a waiting list. The other options is one of the skill centers...why are they so much more $$$ than Gateway? I don't get it!

    and what is even funnier, i brought my poor husband as body guard with me. i did not want to wait alone close to van buren st at 2 am hahaha. poor guy left when i got into the building at 6 am. he sat me safely at the floor in front of the room 2176, brought me some water and banana and he left. can you imagine how mad he was when i later told him they did not accept my app because of the tb test.
