    Yep, Tweety2013's right - last year all 60 alternates were accepted, so there is still a chance.

    Speaking of which...I was informed yesterday that I was accepted off the wait list! WOOOOO!
    Yay! Congrats @moonsilver! What number were you on the waitlist.

    Even thought all 60 alternates were accepted last year, I am still a little hesitant and would still like to know updates on those who got in from waitlist.

    I was recently accepted to UCLA's MECN Fall Quarter, 2013. It is difficult to get information for this program however; once you apply and are accepted, the Nursing department sends you a list of things you must complete before starting UCLA. This is relatively easy process. From my experience this is what has happened so far:
    - Acceptance letter into program.
    - Complete the Statement of Intention to Register and Statement of Legal Residence
    - Complete all financial aid (FAFSA)
    - Sign up for Bruin Account
    - Enroll in an Epidemiology summer course (Nursing 50)
    - Apply to housing (your choice)
    - Complete all health requirements: immunizations, (positive titers to Hep B, Measeals, Mumps, Rubella Varicella Zoster), Neg tb test, TDap, "Good Health Statement" form doctor, and Seasonal Influenza vaccine
    - Complete Background check
    - Complete BLS-CPR course
    - Complete HIPPA training on-line
    - Attend a 2-day mandatory orientation

    Hopefully, I have been some help to you. Good luck in all your endeavors!
