Getting ready to apply: CT Community Colleges- Nursing Program 2013 - page 10

    Hello Everyone!

    I am anxiously waiting the link on MyCommnet to make sure all my transcripts were received and processed correctly. I went yesterday in person because the college kept sending me emails telling me they had not received proof of my HS diploma. I verified that it was sent back in early December. When I showed up at CCC, the admissions people told me it was best to hand-deliver things. I always thought official transcripts had to be sent from the institution as well as sealed~ The lady walked right over to her desk, dug down into a pile of paperwork 3 inches thick and pulled out my diploma. She then told me that I had applied online for the wrong semester and corrected it to read "Fall 2013." I have read some real nightmare stories on other year's threads so I want to make certain everything is squared away so I don't get a letter in March that says they are missing things...

    AP 1 was an A, Nursing GPA 3.72, TEAS 85.3 after two tries and weeks of studying. I have Micro left and ENG Comp 2 which I am taking Spring 13.

    Good Luck to everyone!!! This site is such a place of great information and comfort, thanks so much for posting here, it has been a huge help.

    Which micro class are you taking? That's also my last req.! can I tell you, after i read your message, I went and checked my application to make I checked the right year and semester! I'm so paranoid about things being processed correctly!

    I am hoping to take micro in the summer, I couldn't get in this Spring. Great job getting everything done already! I hope it's offered at MXCC. That is my favorite campus. I would definitely recommend going into your school of choice before the end of the month to double check your file! I was really surprised they suggested that to me, I would have thought they would rather NOT have the foot traffic.

    Does anyone know if Capital sends out their official transcripts right when you request them?

    You can check the status of your transcript request. In mycommnet, underneath request a transcript, it says something like "check status of requested transcript". It will tell you the day it was printed and stuff.

    Well here's an update. I finished my summer semester with As. In the Fall I took Chem, A&P 1, Computers and Statistics.

    Everything that could go wrong did go wrong for this semester. Culminating with my mother getting sick and put on a ventilator the week of finals. I had to fly to be with her and couldn't take them. Two professors let me take them online. Two gave me an incomplete. Then Intercession came and to keep my full-time status I had to take TWO courses. I would NOT recommend doing that. I just finished those last night with As.

    I took my TEAS-V on Tuesday cold turkey. No studying and got an 80.0. I *was* pretty happy about my grade but now, not so much.

    GPA was a 4.0 but I ended up with a B- in Chem and Statistics and A&P1 are the two finals I have left to take next week. I *hope* to end up with a B in A&P1. Hopefully an A or A- in Stats. I can't even speculate where that leaves my GPA.

    I am having the hardest time accessing the online application. I've been going back and forth with Admissions and IT for the last two days. Hopefully they will get that settled. Everything else is "in route" to them so hopefully it ends up where it needs to be.

    I was also told that same thing by the admissions people about bringing everything in. All official transcripts have to arrive by mail I thought. My going there in person wouldn't do anything to speed up the process. I applied online, they took my money, I should be all set I hope.

    I know I'm cutting it close and it's a long-shot but I am doing everything within my power to make it happen. I might have an ULCER by the time all is said and done, but I'm committed!

    I just read all of last year's thread. What a roller coaster is right! And some of you have hopped on it again!

    I still haven't been able to log into commnet to access the application. I got another email today that they were missing my immunizations. The Drs office faxed them on Monday. I called them again and they faxed them again and are sending them to me. If they don't get it straight by next week I will drive there with my results and sit until they get my account set up. Were you guys able to access commnet before your high school transcripts or immunizations were in?

    I've requested transcripts from Asnuntuck and my high school. Of course I have no idea if they have arrived there yet. How would we know??

    I am just so anxious about everything getting in on time. Is the online application portion time consuming?

    I know I sound like a nervous wreck and I am! I was all set to start my application in November and one thing after another happened and my focus was on holding my family together and my grades. I got home from taking care of my mom and realized I only had 3 weeks until the deadline! 2 of those weeks involved 2 Intercession classes!

    I didn't intend to put all my eggs in one basket, but I did. Simply because I don't have the time to focus on any other applications. It's comforting that even with some technical clitches that some in the last class encountered, it was able to be straightened out.

    Only a couple more weeks until the outcome is out of our hands!!

    I just finished my online winter class with Capital so now I need my transcript sent to NCC. My teacher said that our grades won't be available till January 22, so I'm waiting till then to request my official transcript be sent. I'm worried it won't make it in time. And I can't go get it because it's in Hartford which is an hour and a half drive from me. And I also don't have a license.

    So here is where I am at. Teas is 76 Gpa is 3.65 A&P is a-That teas is not great. A couple of my transcripts just got done. Do they just have to be post marked by Feb 1st or received by then. I had my dr send my immunization, and date of my chicken pox. Did anyone else do this, in lieu of the vaccine?I am so nervous it won't all come together Last minute did not help me out. I realized this 2 transcripts needed to be sent even though I withdrew from the classes 10 years ago, and never got credit for them.
