    Hey guys,

    I just came to check and see how you're all holding up. So I made a vow to myself that I wouldn't let the waiting get to me....but to be honest I'm going crazy here lol. Just the fact that February is almost complete and we'll be starting March very soon...is making me very nervous! I hope everyone else is doing ok and that we'll be hearing some very good news soon I'm guessing we have around approximately 42 days to hear back from the nursing department!

    Been lurking this thread for a while before I decided to finally make an account. :PApplying as a SFU psych undergrad here with volunteer in medical health settings and non-medical related work experience. My grades aren't the best so hopefully my volunteer and work experience will help. But after reading about all your guys' applications, I certainly feel that mine isn't really strong enough. But it's my first time applying, so I will take this as an experience so I know how to better my application for the next round!Seeing March drawing closer and closer certainly has me on the edge of my seat constantly! XD

    Ahaha I KNOW!! It felt like it would never end! I've been trying (unsuccessfully) to distract myself, but it's all I can think about.

    I read on a old BCIT thread from another forum that the first batch of shortlist emails are sent to applicants holding a degree or diploma. Looks like it was sent on first-second week of March! :S

    Really? Do you think you could please send me the link, Chiseen? Btw, I wouldn't worry about it too much I'd give it 18 days until we hear back!

    Hm, I don't have the link since it was just something that came up with google search.
    But I recall that it wasn't from a August 2012 thread but a year or two earlier.
    If the scheduling is the same though, then the first batch of shortlist applicants should be notified starting tomorrow...!!!!!

    Last year people got shortlisted around the 18th, and then rejections came out the following week

    That's okay Chiseen

    oh boy you guys, now I'm NERVOUS!!! I just watched the new BCIT information session for the nursing program and they were talking about the august intake and we're supposed to hear back in early march, which I'm assuming will be this week! And shortlisted applicants will hear back upon final decision by April 30th (or possibly earlier)!
