This is exactly the posting I was and had been looking for. Thank you! I just started spending time on this site yesterday. I'm going to write some detail so others won't have to go through what I went through, or somehow to avoid what I went through.
I got a terrible time stamp. I had all nursing application requirements completed by the middle of March 09, and then I couldn't get w/ my advisor. She was either booked or on vacation. I did finally get w/ her on April 7, '09, which meant I had missed the deadline for March 31. Ugh.
Because my app was in by early April, then I'd have to wait 2 more months to get my time and date stamp. At the time I didn't truly understand the whole thing, but now I do of course.
I got my date and time stamp on June 16, 2009 8:05:45 AM.
I think I was the very last of that days run, so those people who put in theirs at the end of May are likely ahead of me, but that's how the cookie crumbles. I assume I'll get in when I'm supposed to get in. I figure that 345 people are ahead of me just on that date alone. That's almost a whole semester of nursing students at all the Maricopa colleges alone!!!
I have not been placed yet. My choices are currently SCC trad., MCC trad., CGCC trad, GCC weekend and Gateway accel. --not exactly in that order.
I saw someone say they're likely up to 2/09 applications, but who really knows, right? I'm keeping my fingers crossed extremely hard for this fall but I'm overly optimistic I think. I hate to admit it, but I am alittle happy when people decide to defer their enrollment, although I realize the person who has to do it likely has to do it likely under unfortunate circumstances. I know how hard they've worked and how long they've waited, and can really appreciate their situation.
