I just received my lottery number and I am number 926! I applied November 2009.
I just wanted to put the information on here so we can see how far we are along the list. I know that some people will pick other programs, change majors, etc and hoping my number will go down. But 929 is very high and seems that I wont get in for years.
Here are the numbers that I got some someone else.
Anyone out there?

Wow, that's amazing that there's a list that is that long. I applied Nov 2007 and was called in June 2008 as an alternate. I didn't accept then because I was in an LVN program. I then went in as an alternate in Spring 2009 and made it in. There were about 120 students at that time vying for a spot (there were 96).
I decided to start from the beginning even though I was already an LVN and I'm glad I did. I would have had to wait longer to get in if I applied as an LVN.
Now, 1 year later I'm about to start my 3rd semester and boy, has it been one heck of a ride! You guys have to be mentally ready and able to give 110% of yourselves in these classes. You have to want to be a nurse really badly. It's really hard and time-consuming. If you are willing to work hard and put in a lot of extra time studying and going to study groups, it will be well worth it. The bonds you form with your fellow classmates is priceless and helps you to stay motivated.
Good luck in getting into our prestigious nursing program. I highly recommend Mt. Sac's nursing program. The instructors are the best and strive to help each and every one of us if you seek their help.
