    That reminds me of me last year this day I left work and drove from school to school, I got wait listed but I tried. I'm applying again this year NVCC & BHSN. Good Luck, when there's a will, there's a way!

    Thanks ladies! I "casually" stopped by the Registrar's office today to check the status of the transcripts and was told they weren't done and to check in tomorrow. As soon as I got back into town they called and said they were READY!!! There is not an emoticon which expresses the magnitude of my happiness!! I am going to pick them up tomorrow and deliver them to CCC a whole DAY before the deadline!!!

    Sooo, I was up all night dreaming of....TRANSCRIPTS!!! I didn't sleep at all!!! I had my fetal pig dissection today and decided not to eat before hand and had coffee instead. So, who is it who nearly hits the deck half-way through the dissection? This girl. Right here. The one under the bag. I actually stood there and argued with myself that there was NO way I was going to pass out. I am a nurse. A mother of five children. I have smelled and treated wounds that worse than that poor pig. I hopped right in with that scalpel and made all the initial cuts. I passed the pig to my partner and he went at the sternum with the scissors and that's when I felt the color drain from my face. Thankfully, I didn't completely embarrass myself and excused myself to the hallway and sat down before I ended up with a concussion. It's ok to laugh at me. I've been laughing at myself all day.

    So I need a transcript miracle. A delayed one coming from Ohio, it was mailed last Thursday. But it probably won't make it. I am so sad! After all this hard work that I might have to wait another year

    The nursing advisor at my school said that as long as the print date is before february 1st, then you're ok. So you should be fine. Just make sure it didn't get lost in the mail.

    I hope that's true, July. Getting lost in the mail is what scares me.

    Toon, I have also heard that as well. As long as it's post-marked by or on the 1st it will be ok. Hopefully, if it doesn't arrive the school it's coming from will confirm that it should've gone out before the deadline and they will resend it.

    I cannot believe that the application period is over for this year! When I was waitlisted last year I thought that the 2013 application deadline was so far away. In retrospect the year went by really quickly. I applied to NVCC and my stats this year are 3.23 GPA, 85.3% TEAS, and A in A&P. I hope that this is good enough. Since they changed the requirements this year I think that it will be more competitive but that is just me guessing. Fingers crossed and good luck to everyone. Think good thoughts while they are looking over all of our files.

    Hey motosteph, our stats are almost the same. I have a 3.24 gpa, a 77.3 on the teas, and an A- in A&P.
