    There are 76 people on the holdlist I just called. Those who are on the top of the holdlist are those who can be deferred to august or would most likely get into January's program. For the rest of us though, like myself, the chances are very slim and I have to recompete but my application will be stronger next time. I will wavier my fee for August though. keep up the hope! Good luck to you all and I shall see u all on here online when we're competing for August's intake!

    Eek!! I got an email saying I am on the hold list and guaranteed a spot for August 2013 if a spot doesn't open for January. At first I was in shock that I was outright accepted.. But then I realized I'm in! Whether or not it is this January (what I want soooo badly) or the following August!
    I wonder how many people are in this top bunch. If 76 people are wait listed, then maybe 10? 5?
    Congrats to everyone who got in!!! And congrats to everyone who got wait listed!! I cannot wait for that phone call I am so crazily hoping for!!

    Ps: anyone know when the latest they could phone? Like mid-dec? Or do those of who are fully accepted, do you have to reply by a certain date if you are accepting??

    We don't need to "accept" but we do need to pay our tuition (or at least give them our student loan number by nov 8th). So im assuming that those who do not pay are going to be dropping out... Plus we have our crim record check, we need to pass our fit respirator test, etc So I suppose that if people don't complete those requirements they will loose their spots... So it looks as though those on the hold list could be called at any point. I hope that helps

    I forgot to mention that they willl keep in touch with those on the holdlist until the first week of January before the start of the program. So keep your phones nearby until jan everyone!

    So I am going to be keeping my phone glued to my side until January... What if I don't answer the phone call because I'm in class or showering or in an exam!? They will try more than once right? Or leave a message and give me a day to get back to them?

    What?! They will keep calling until the start of the program? So if I have decided to wait until a spot opens up for January and not deferred it now, do I need to call admission?

    I would hope they would leave a message. I'm not around my phone all the time. I just wish I knew what number I was... so I can go back to the drawing board and figure out what I'm going to do with my life until August if I'm later on the list!

    Good luck you guys! And for those that defer or will be in the August I take, I can't wait to meet you all!!!

    Given how much needs to be done before you start clinical, it doesn't make sense that we could hear up until the 1st week of Jan. CPR, criminal record check, fit testing, etc. all need to be done before classes begin. Not only that the deadline to apply for the August intake is December 15th. I don't know about you guys but I want to reapply but not lose my spot on the hold list either.

    I would THINK they would know who is accepting their offers by this week and then start moving on to the hold list. I don't know....thoughts?

    Hey guys,

    Someone told me their cousin finished the BCIT nursing program in 2 years (or something like that) because she held a previous bachelor's degree and "challenged" the courses. Does anyone know if this is possible?
