    well I guess if I wanna be a nurse didn't get in with 18 pts... I am pretty much not going to get in. The only hope is that I get in through the lottery which is a long shot. Either way I still haven't gotten a letter I will let you guys know when I do... Good luck to everyone that made it... Congrats!!!

    Congratulations to those who have gotten accepted!! (And to those who are still waiting, it sucks, I know - I've been there!!)

    If I can put in my ... (I'm finishing up my 2nd semester at Saddleback...)

    Try to sign up for Pharmacology & Gero right away - try to take both over the summer. It will suck, I know. But, I am *SO* glad that I didn't have to worry about taking them along with starting 1st semester.

    Call the nursing office & make sure that the Pharm & Gero that you plan to take will transfer. I've heard rumors that you will only be able to take them at Saddleback for them to count...

    Don't worry if you didn't get in off grades...I am proud to say that I got in off the lottery! (And I am hanging in there with my classmates who had 4.0 GPAs)

    Feel free to message me with any specific questions. I am a student mentor & I love to chat & help out in any way that I can.

    So I stalked the mail man again today... I think he is really scared of me!!! But still no letter. Has anyone else still not received their letters? I am hoping that they mailed out all the letters at the same time. Because it seems that everyone on this post either got in or is an alternate. I am hoping that they didn't send the rejection letters out at a later date. Anyway, after a few myocardial infarctions I am still waiting... Boy I hope it comes tomorrow if I have to wait till Monday it is going to be a really stressful weekend. Did anyone get accepted who didn't have 18 pts?

    I still haven't received anything. But CONGRATS to all that made it into the program for fall. If anyone out there made it in with less than 18 pts please let us know.

    Same here, I have 16 points and have not received a letter as of today yet. I'm guessing that there were over 45 people that had 18 points. Don't give up hope yet guys, there is still a slim chance that we might get in with the lottery. AAnderson - how do you like the program so far? Is it super hard or doable? Thank you for all the helpful post, we all appreciate it very much. Please everyone out there that got accepted with anything less than 18 points let the rest of us know. Good luck and congrats!

    I'm not going to lie. The program is HARD - but at the same time, it's doable. 2nd semester was a rude awakening from 1st semester. There is a LOT of hand holding 1st semester and 2nd semester - I kind of felt like we were fed to the sharks. This semester is definitely survival of the fittest.

    Oh I forgot, one thing at a time.

    Get into the program...if you didn't get in. Don't worry, try again! (And take gero/pharm/speech in the meantime.) I first tried getting in back in 2005...long story short (and a Bachelor's degree later...) I'm back at Saddleback and almost halfway through the program.

    Apparently, Saddleback was just ranked #1 in the country (even ranking above Duke & Yale) for NCLEX passing rates. Keep trying, it's worth it!!

    Wow, impressive #1! I only hear good things about Saddleback, I got into GWC for Spr 2011 but so far I have heard all bad things about the school, which is making me way nervous. (drop out rate, mean instructors, even prejudice, and the list goes on). Thanks for the input, it's nice to hear from students in the program. BTW has the school ever had any over 45 people with 18 points before? This sounds unheard of.

    Hello everyone, it's Saturday and I got my letter saying that I did not get in. I have 16 Points. They said in the letter that they had 601 applicants. I'm sure that they had well over 45 people with 18 points this time from what I can gather from the previous postings. Good luck everyone.
