    How long was the paperwork session? I am going tomorrow and I have to go to work right after so I wasn't sure if it ran late or not. What all did you have to do?

    It took about an hour and a half...you go over A LOT...they give you information on immunizations, physical, background check, uniforms, equipment, fall schedule, etc.

    hey everyone!
    congrats to those of you who've made it into the program.
    but i was wondering if you are all talking about saddleback college in Mission Viejo, CA. i was confused because you are all talking about applying into an 18 point system. if you're all talking about the saddleback i think you're talking about, then the program is now a 100 point system, and i was wondering if anybody is applying to the program under the new point system. i'm going to be applying next summer for Spring '11, and i'm seriously worried about the new odds that this more intense system has introduced...
    thanks to anybody that has any information!

    loss for words....I think the new point system is actually ggoing to be better...less competition...This past applicaztion process had 601 applicants.....So as long as you have taken the extra classes you should be fine..

    really? i don't think it'll be any better. i mean, it will take a bit longer for people to apply into the program, but it's just going to make applicants more cutthroat, and intense. i don't know if it's just me, but the whole getting 3 points for having a personal disaster happen to you bothers me. people will eventually get desperate. plus, there's only so much you can do to up your points until you can't get any higher, and then what? you just settle on another school? that's not good. not when you can go to a good school like Saddleback.
