    Hey everyone, I called PCC this morning and I was told that applicants should hear something by late April and before May 1st. They are still evaluating but if you don't hear anything in 2 weeks, give them a call to follow up.
    Do you know if that was to hear if we were accepted or to take the teas test?

    I got my PCC (school not ADN) registration info but they have me listed as an out of state student! Despite popular SoCal belief, Sacramento is still part of California!

    I believe it will be to take the TEAS or to submit your existing score...that's a good question though. I would imagine it would just be to say you made the cut and can take the TEAS, but not sure if that means acceptance...

    hey everyone i called pcc today and they said we should hear something in about 2 to 3 weeks and their selection processed is based on lottery/random selection...they are not based on points so that's a good thing for me because my gpa is not the bomb at all...they said a 2.5 student or a 4.0 student has the same chances of getting in so it's all about luck and i believe most important of all God's work. i have hope...good luck everyone!!!! keep in touch.

    My science gpa is 4.0, all at PCC. My overall is lower, though not abysmal. I've never actually calculated my gpa overall. My guess is in the neighborhood of a 3.2-3.4. First and only attempt at TEAS V was a 95.3. Still I didn't get in last year. I really thought it would somehow magically work out for me, in spite of all the programs being so impacted. How naive is THAT? lol I've decided that if it doesn't happen for me this year, I'll be putting together a DIY premed postbacc. I would need to complete a whole lot of science credits and then take MCATs, but *what the hell* I love science and I generally test really well. To hell with waiting around another year! Nursing school would be great, but med school wouldn't be bad, either. If I have to stress about getting in or not getting in and then have to wait around anyway, why not just do med school?

    ETA: Thanks for the good luck vibes and best of luck to everyone else, also. I really hope I don't sound like I have sour grapes. I just got so invested in things working out last year; it was a bit baffling and disappointing, to say the least.

    I don't think you sound like you have sour grapes the lottery system is, by definition, a crapshoot haha

    May the odds be ever in your favor

    Thanks, Shye! I was concerned I was coming across as a major A hole.

    And may the odds also be ever in your favor.

    And may you never be stuck paying out of state tuition in a state where you actually reside!
