    Congrats MyRoseyCareer!!!!! That's great news! I had no idea that acceptance emails could go out this soon. The email I got said that they would be sending out the results Mid-September to early October. Has anyone else been accepted? Fingers crossed for all of us still waiting

    lenaelle, santa barbara city college starts on monday but i think there's one section of pharm that has a couple waitlist spots open. i know its close to the start date but maybe u can call in the morning and see what your options are to register? u can try emailing the professor as well. good luck.

    I hear you're frustrated! Don't throw in the towel just yet! (Btw, if you find a class, maybe call her back ASAP so you're not passed over.) There's a self-study pharm course you can start at any time at Indiana University (I took pharm twice, got A's twice... My first pharm course no longer existed at my local CC after the course became part of the CC's RN program, so I had to retake pharm upon applying to SMU). And, there's a discussion that went on about this on this site, too: Any online Pharm and Pathophysio classes for ABSN at Samuel Merritt College?

    Good luck, lenaelle! (Yes, my prereqs have been complete for over a year... not sure how much this matters as it depends on each applicant pool, I imagine.)

    WOW, that's WAY early. CONGRATULATIONS, MyRoseyCareer! It's the start of a very rosey career, indeed.

    Did you turn your app in well before the deadline or give them an indication you needed an early response? Perhaps they go through the apps in the order received - beyond the fact that you clearly were a stellar candidate.

    I am a little upset because I was trying to get into a Pharmacology class and I couldn't get in. I live in the East Bay area in California. I received an email from --------------- asking me where I'm going to take Pharmacology at, and I told her I couldn't get into the Pharm class I wanted. I feel like I wasted an application because they're obviously not going to accept me if I don't have it completed.

    Does anyone have any recommendations or know of any Pharm classes still open?
    Keep an eye out at Santa Barbara City College (online) I think it is waitlisted right now, but you could try and see if you can get in. Also, you can look at New Mexico City College or clackamas college. Try doing an online search, there is a college that offers classes that start throughout the year but I cannot remember the name. Hope you can find a class soon. Good luck.

    Thanks for the replies!MyRosey, Indiana University wasn't on the list of approved pharmo classes. Did they accept it anyway?

    From my understanding, the list is just for California schools. You are not required to take the classes from those schools; they just need to cover the same topics. For example, I took my A&P out of state, but they accepted them because the same topics were covered and were equivalent credits.

    Not to step on MyRoseys toes...since she was accepted into the program, they accepted the class.

    If you find a class and you are not sure if it meets the schools requirements, you can call them and ask. From my experience, they have always been really helpful. Hope this helps.

    Thanks, Jenin! For some reason I assumed only classes on the list were acceptable, but after reading through again, they're just "Pre-approved" courses.

    Lenaelle and JeninCA,

    My understanding is the same as JeninCA's (and no toes stepped on!). The classes that are listed on the website are pre-approved and other pharm courses may or may not meet their guidelines. Lenaelle, I have to apologize. I am sorry, as I misspoke. I took the self-study pharmacology course I was referring to from Rio Salado (a pre-approved course), but again, other courses may meet their guidelines.

    I really appreciate all the congrats from such an equally stellar group! Thank you all. (I applied and was accepted into last year's program. I reapplied and was accepted this year.) I look forward to hearing from everyone as the good news comes in. I am very grateful to be getting to know you all.

    Just heard my application has been forwarded for faculty review - good to get another confirmation that the process is moving along.
