    So guys how does the whole alternate thing work? I show up and participate till? The first day of class?
    I believe it's sort of a "wait list" to the actual acceptees meaning that those that are on the alternate list will fill in the spots of the "no shows" or people who decline the acceptance. Basically, you or other alternates will be accepted depending on the amount of no shows. I'm not exactly sure how the alternate list works but I think it's like that.

    Like for me at Mt. SAC, we have an alternate list as well where they were called into the program for those that either did not respond to the acceptance letter or show up at orientation. The acceptance letter needed to be signed and turned in person in order to "complete" the acceptance as well as orientation.

    I'd say that you're in luck if you at least get on the alternate list. Means you might get a spot in Spring depending on the amount of no shows and if not, I'm pretty sure you'll be for sure in this coming fall 2013.

    Chairmanx did u receive another email from them stating that u were accepted? I'm so confused. He said I am accepted and that he would send another email to me but I didn't receive one. I called today and he is not there. Don't we have to accept by today??

    I called and she didn't help. She just said to come Mon and talk to him. She doesn't know anything about it. She only has the list of alternates in front of her. He did not leave the list of those already accepted. Oh and malia09 so u probably won't get email today cuz he is not there. Maybe he is waiting till Monday to see who shows up. See u Mon

    Hello everyone. I just finished my second semester, N12, at RCC. Don't lose hope if you're an alternate. This past class of N11 students went completely through there alternate list. As a matter of fact, two students were added the first week of school and they were completely denied, not even on the alternate list. The alternates go to the orientation, but don't pay for the background check. Many alternates still do the health clearance so they're right on board. I would recommend saving your money now and be prepared to spend about $1,500, which includes most of the supplies for the entire program. Good luck!
