yoginurse, do they have a wait list? if they do, how long were you on the list before you got into the program? would you please give me some information about applying for their nursing program?
thanks a lot!!!!!
I am in the collaborative program, which is different than the generic or traditional program, at COC. I wasn't in the list, but won through lottery system. According to the professors, around 350 students applied, and 130 students got selected. So it's a 1 to 2 chances of getting a seat.
I think the generic program has a waiting list. My friend was on the list, and he was around 250 (he just applied like few months ago though). And I believe that some of those in waiting list are given priority to get selected in the collaborative program, if they applied. I think the list is getting shorter by now, but I'm not sure what's the number right now (You may call and ask them).
Therefore, if you really want to get into COC. Try to apply for next Fall semester, for both generic and collaborative program. If you are lucky, you'll get into the collaborative program in next Fall. If you're not, you will still be on the waiting list to get into the generic or the following collaborative program.
I hope this help! I know it's so stressful not getting accepted to nursing program since it's so competitve! But my advice is, apply to as many schools as you can, it'll pay off at the end!
