Anyone in the Palomar College waitlist? Anyone knows if they already sent out acceptance letters for Spring 2012 or Fall 2012? If you do, what number on the waitlist are you currently in? I'm in the 80's and I'm just looking for... Read More
- 0Aug 23, '11 by Iamwaitingawww that's a bummer you could have taken TEAS at Palomar or CSUSM or other schools that offered it. I believe you don't have to be a student on either schools to take the TEAS. I didn't apply on the new point system because I was hoping to get in Fall 2011 and I wasn't really keeping up on the latest news on the program till recently cause I was a full time student at CSUSM. I am a full time student at CSU this sem and just taking one class at Palomar. Keep in touch, ok? I will definitely let you know as soon as I get my acceptance letter.
- 0Aug 23, '11 by IvyloveI know it was a total bummer, at that time the deadline was August something and the earliest scheduled I got in at Palomar was sept 13. And I remembered I scheduled that back in May & that was the soonest they could get me in at that time. Yes, they told me I don't have to be a student there to take the teas. I didn't really checked out CSUSM, I should of. But yeah, thanks a lot for the info and hope you hear from them soon. Keep in touch!
Congrats to you too I wish I could join you guys, but I'm still waiting
Do you mind telling me what number are you in the waiting list? I'm just soooooo curious and trying to estimate when I could possibly get in. Did you apply to the new point system?
Thanks and congrats again!
- 0I didn't apply using the new points system and I couldn't see what number I was on the wait list because they had already taken it off when I went to look... what number are you? I know that a lot of people will either already be going to another school or won't contact them back so you may still have a chance of getting in! If I decide not to go then there's one more spot maybe for you!
- 0Well my number went down pretty fast so maybe you'll get in for Fall 2012.... Its a long story but basically I'm in an LVN program right now and will be done in december... but I REALLY want to get my RN as soon as possible.. so I'm thinking starting over and doing the generic RN will get me there faster than trying to bridge.. because by the time I get my LVN license and apply for transition courses then get on a waitlist for the bridge it will prob take longer than going the generic route. I know people think I'm crazy for considering it but I can work as an LVN while I'm in the RN. But I'm also considering taking my chances and going for the bridge but really don't want to miss the opportunity to get my RN since I've been waiting this long...
Anyone want to give me any input or opinions on what I should do????
- 0Wow yes that's a tough one. I thought of getting my LVN too at first, but I decided to just continue on pursuing my bachelors while I'm anxiously waiting to get in. I hope like you said, to get in in Fall next year.
If you decide to do the bridge, did you see and ask how long of a wait would be? From what I saw on the wait list, the bridge option does not have too many students on the wait list. Also, the program would be shorter for you. Starting the generic program is not a bad decision as well, at least you know you're starting the nursing program this coming spring. Whatever you decide, you have to follow what you think is best for you. Good luck to you
