    Hey everyone!

    I'm also applying for the Jan 2013 intake. I'm VERY excited and anxious already. I feel like I've been waiting a long time already to get this going!

    I'm applying next week. I'm just wondering if someone can remind me if you hand in your reference WITH your application or when you get shortlisted. I'm pretty sure it's only when you get shortlisted but my reference kind of needs to be sent now so I hope that won't cause a problem.

    I'm applying with about 66 credits and 50 hours volunteer experience in a health care setting. I know a couple people in the program who got in with less volunteer hours than that so I'm hoping that will be enough to get me in! I have life experience from travelling and volunteering abroad so I'm hoping that will help too. I am currently taking Libs 7001 and 7002 so that will be finished by the cut off date in August.

    I'm very excited to hear about everyone else's experience with this application process along the way

    You don't need to submit references with your application and if you must hand them in now, i suggest keeping a copy of them in case you need to submit them later...things can get misplaced with so many applications and it would be a little stressful if you were unable to reproduce those references when they were required! For the Jan 2012 intake, I applied the first week of June and I didn't hear I was accepted until October 28....so it's a bit of a long wait. Good luck with your application!!

    thanks for the reply Chhun. sorry for the late response back. I just applied and handed in all my documents last week for bcit. I wonder how long it will be until we receive some info back. My online application status says unassessed, gets it's still early to hear back.I actually applied with very little credits, only around 42. I know they are looking for applicants with around 60 but I decided to apply anyways and give it a shot. My initial plan was to go to Langara for nursing but honestly they wait is too long. They start accepting applicants for their sept 2013 intake this Oct 2012. So I thought I would apply to other schools instead. Have you applied anywhere else? Going to Bcit would be amazing, I really like their problem based learning approach.

    Good for you! and goodluck with your application! I wish you all the best! I applied as well like almost 2-3 weeks ago and they haven't assessed mine either. It's worth a shot though they usually accept students who have 45-60 credits but I've known tons of people who actually got in with less than that.I'm applying with 48.5 credits I reallly hope I get it I have eng 1117, psych 1/2, libs 7001/7002/ hmgt 7180, two liberal electives, science courses, a well maintained gpa and over 230 hours of volunteering in health related fields. I wonder how long it will take until we hear back from them probably after july 15th? I'm definitely sticking with BCIT though their program is hands down one of the best there is! But then again is always good to keep your options open too

    wow your application is really good! I have the psychs, english, as well as some sociology and ethics and 200 level courses from langara. I didn't get a chance to do the liberal courses yet because I don't go to bcit. I may looking into taking them in the Sept. As for the hmgt, I talked to a bcit nursing advisor and she said to take that couse while you're in the program as it's more effective. I know a friend who got in to Bcit with 30 credits, she was in her first year at kwantlen. But Bcit looks for applicants with more credits so I won't get my hopes up too much. That seems about right, we should hear back from them around July. Bcit has another intake in August as well right? I'm sure they will start accepting applications for that as well. Yes, I agree, Bcit is top preference and then Langara as a back up

    You probably will not hear anything back until at least september. For the August Application intake you had to apply by dec 15th (July 15th for jan), have all documents in by Jan 31st (Aug 31 for Jan) and you hear back if you are short listed mid to late march. So i hate to get your hopes up but you still have a long wait ahead of you. But good luck with your application and happy waiting, there are lots out there with you.

    And greys03, what type of other credentials did you friend have to get in with 30 credits, i hear thats really hard to do?

    I applied but I haven't handed in any documentation. We have until Aug 31, 2012 to hand in all documentation for the Jan 2013 intake. I think they won't be assessing the applications until after the deadline, I'm not sure though. According to the other forum for the Jan 2012 intake, the applicants that were shortlisted were notified in Oct and those who got accepted didn't receive provisional acceptance until Nov. The game of patience.

    true, I don't think we'll hear back for a while. I don't mind waiting. I'm just nervous for the decision. pippa20, it is really hard to get in with just 30 credits. She was just a mutual friend and so I'm not sure what she applied with specifically. I'm thinking of applying for the August 2013 intake, I guess that will open sometime around december..

    My first post here. I'm in the process of applying for the Jan 2013 intake. I am finishing up my last semester at sfu and should be able to graduate with a bsc in health sciences with 128 credits by August. I have 8 credits of sociology and 3 credits of psychology. I read up other threads and I'm starting to get worried because most people who got accepted into the program seem to have some of their nursing prereqs (e.g., LIBS/health management) done. Is there anyone who got accepted that do not have those courses done?

    dog_prints,

    From what I have read on forums, there are students who have been accepted that haven't completed some of the prerequisites. They may have completed some of them. On BCIT's Nursing Facebook page, there are many students on there that are looking to purchase textbooks for those courses. I cannot provide you with a sufficient answer to whether any student has been accepted without completing any of the required prerequisites.

    Have you taken any of the Libs courses (7001, 7002)?

    I know that LIBS 7001 is critical writing and LIBS 7002 is ethics. Within my undergrad, I have taken 2 English writing classes and other classes that are writing intensive as well as a philosophy class and a health ethics class that specifically deal with ethics. I don't think they would be considered as equivalents to the 2 LIBS though...
