    You know its wierd though, my transcripts just showed up last week, so I think they are still processing things. I submitted everything on November 1, so its not like I was last minute with getting things in. I had emailed my advisor back around Feb. 1 and he told me not to worry about the computer test- that he forwarded the reults to the admissions office. Ill see if she writes back. I will not hesitate all to fight this if they didnt process things correctly. I know for a fact I submitted everything correctly.

    Well, that's not comforting. I just got an autoreply/out of office message from ***********************. I guess I know what I am doing during my lunch hour today! Time to trek over to CCC!

    I emailed her and the general email address as well. Thanks for replying- I think I needed to hear from someone else that my worries are worth bugging them! Everyone else I talk to has said, don't worry, it'll be fine. But this is my future they are talking about!! I can't take a chance. I thought though they would be sending that letter in March if things were missing to give you a chance to contest- thats what my advisor said- there is apparently a form you fill out if you want to petition anything.
    That is true to a certain extent. IF you can prove that you had everything in on time, they will reconsider. If all you have is your word against theirs, they won't.

    Print those emails between you and the advisor and bring them! I wouldn't let this go any longer if I were you! Like you said-this is your future! You shouldn't have to wait another year just because someone didn't do what they said they would. One of my college transcripts were not showing up on Feb 1 as received, so I called the admissions office at NV to make sure they had received it. I got the generic "Im sure it's here, we have a lot of papers to go through" and I would not get off the phone until I knew 100% that they had my transcript. So, I was put on hold and then she came back and said they had it, but still needed to enter it. Don't leave until they give you a real answer-and see if you can get it in writing or some kind of hard proof.
    Oh, and if you read previous year's threads-it seems like this kind of stuff is typical for CCC.

    Well if my transcripts are showing up as received on May 8, 2011 and February 23, 2011, and the composition and computer classes are on those transcripts, I think its safe to say I made it in time for the Feb. 1, 2013 cutoff. But still I am going over there in a few because I'd rather be safe then sorry.

    This is why I left nothing to chance. I ordered transcripts and brought them to nvcc myself. And made sure I had everything in on January 31.

    Well I feel better. I spoke with Admissions and my fears are eased! I also heard back from **********, and was told the same thing. Right now, they are reviewing the applications, inputting all the transfer classes and calculating the nursing GPA. No one is being tossed out yet. We will all receive a letter whether we have missing items or not shortly. We can still contest any problems so long as we did everything correctly on our end- meaning we submitted the documentation correctly and timely. As my transcripts are officially entered, I have nothing to worry about. Additionally, I was told that they should be finishing the review at the end of next week. Bottom line, if you submitted everything correctly, and the records are showing up on the checklist, then they have your stuff. As for the computer test, they have a list in the admissions office from the advisors, and since I have proof that it was sent in by my advisor, then I can be assured I am on the list. So, for now, I am going to stop worrying and just be patient!!

    Thanks everyone for your feedback. We have made it this far, we can make it another 6 weeks!!

    Nvcc answered me today. No official word on applicants as they're eliminating the late entries now. Will know soon enough though

    Hey all, I applied this round too. NV is my first choice. My nursing GPA is 3.6, A&P I is an A and TEAS is 82.0. I don't test well and wish I did better on the TEAS but there's nothing I can do about it now. Hopefully I will get to meet some of you in Nursing 101 in the Fall. Good luck to everyone patiently waiting for a letter!

    Thanks for the update. Comforting to know. ******was AWESOME and helped me so much with getting my application and transcripts in. I checked again today and the only thing showing is my TEAS as "met". I hand delivered my transcripts so I know they got them. As Tom Petty once sang, "and the waaaaaaaaaiting is the hardest part!!".

    Hello everyone, just joined this site today. I have applied to the Gateway nursing program. Just waiting patiently like everyone to hear if I got in. I heard it is very competitive. I am staying positive. I have finished all of the courses for the program except obviously the nursing courses so I am hoping this is the year for me. Fingers crossed and positive vibes to everyone!!
