Has anyone seen this addendum on the nursing curriculum packet page 9 for the 2017-2018 school year? I'm really, really hoping they're not adding any more prerequisites because I'm chomping at the... Read More

    Haha well I wouldn't worry too much man, I think we would both qualify as highly competitive applicants. My first choice is Gateway. Being a guy helps I think, theres this initiative at Gateway that basically tries to be more inclusive of men in the program. Men in Nursing – Gateway Community College

    I can't see it being supremely helpful, more like, they'll set aside at least 10 spots for guys or something like that.

    if I get anywhere within the first 10 spots of the waitlist Im happy.

    by the way, did you do most of your pre-reqs at gateway? Ive heard that they try to get more of their own gateway students in there, so, whatever can help!
    @Reyes1810

    I hope I'm not waitlisted! I would like to just get in and stop worrying about it...but no I didn't take any of my pre reqs or any classes for that matter from gateway so I suppose that isn't very helpful, did you?

    I talked to admissions at Norwalk. On April 6th we will get an email to check our status in commnet. I was not told if the process is uniform for all the CCCs.

    Makes sense. Summer class registration starts April 5th at NVCC.

    That seems about right! Last year most students found out on the 5th of April. I try not to "wish time away" but the next week and a half can't go by fast enough!

    Hey all.

    I applied to Gateway as my first choice, Norwalk as my second.

    Nursing GPA 3.8
    A&P I Grade: A
    TEAS V: 84.7%

    From what I understand, to be accepted into your college of 2nd choice the school needs to exhaust its entire waiting list first. This seems pretty unlikely to happen given the sheer number of applicants.

    Also, correct me if I am wrong but I don't think A&PI is factored into your Nursing GPA. I think it is calculated separately as part of your ranking, no?
    Best of luck to us all!

    @jackbenimble - another male applying to gateway...good to see that there are others. I agree with you that getting offered a seat in the program at your second school of choice isn't impossible, but is rather unlikely. However, I am pretty sure that they do use A/P1 when calculating the nursing GPA due to the fact that it is a pre requisite for acceptance into the program, and all pre requisites taken at the time of applying are used when calculating the 'nursing GPA'. The rank system is entirely separate in that they use your A/P1 grade (25%), your TEAS score (25%) and your calculated nursing GPA (50%) to systematically scale the applicants so that they can offer the most desirable students the first seats and work their way down from there.
