Pasadena City College RN program - page 9

Hi, I've heard that it's not recommended to work while enrolled as a student in an RN program. I'm applying for the Spring Semester at PCC and while I do intend to leave my current employer should I be accepted, I was... Read More

    I'm not sure whether PCC is easier during the Spring or not, but County/USC is actually my first choice, and PCC was one of my backups. The rejection letter, which I am sure is a form letter, says that there is "nothing wrong with your application, but some of the applicants in the 600+ pool of applicants were more competitive." I am absolutely fine with that, at least the people who did get in deserve to, because they have the best stats. Congrats to all of those who got in!

    I am only applying to PCC and RCC this fall for spring 2012 and CSULA for fall 2012
    And Jan 2012 I am applying to CSULB, and CSUSB along with Chaffey and Citrus (I currently attend) for fall 2012 too.

    I just hope the "ADN nurses can't get a job in socal" rumor is true. Or by the time I graduate there will be plenty of jobs.

    Does anyone know how many students PCC takes every term?

    Also how many people do you think they select for alternates?

    Asking because I got the email about being an alternate and wanna see if theres a realistic chance for me to get accepted.

    I was wondering, did you guys all receive a confirmation email from PCC that they got your application a while back??

    I have applied to PCC on three occasions. First time I got in, but turned it down b/c I was having a baby. Second time I was an alternate and asked to come to orientation, but didn't attend b/c I was having another baby (do you see a theme?), and last semester I applied and was accepted as an alternate (without being asked to attend an orientation). When I called the office they said they have MANY alternates and cannot even tell me where I am on the list. It wasn't too helpful. just have to wait and hope, I suppose. I never got an email/phone call... so last semester didn't happen. My grades are:
    English: B-
    Micro: A
    Chem: A
    Physi: A
    Anat: A
    Math: A

    I don't think it matters which semester you apply for...they always accept about 60 students and I have no clue how many alternates they hold onto. I still have heard nothing from PCC, and have no clue if I'm in a holding tank or it truly is alphabetical. I'm curious as to whether they really do it alphabetically... b/c I would think they would send all the acceptances out first, then wait for responses and send further acceptances out later... but I could be wrong too. We shall see.

    Wishing the best for all of you.

    I did not receive a confirmation email regarding receipt of the application, but I sent it certified mail, and called them to confirm receipt. The only email I received was the rejection one. Woohoo!

    BeachBedHead - I think you are right! They weigh grades on Phys/Anat, Micro and English.
    DarkBluePhoenix and yellow_p like this.

    As long as I ace my finals, I will basically have the same score as you except I have a B not a B- in English. I hope you get in this fall.
