    @Chall.... I am really sorry to hear they miscalculated your GPA! I definitely think you should appeal even if (worst case your calculated is supposed to be a 3.2 so what!) APPEAL APPEAL APPEAL!!! You don't what the cut off will be. Go for it! You'll only kick your self if you don't appeal and you realize that your gpa WAS good enough. Good luck Everyone else getting letters... Congrats :-)

    Thanks everyone!

    I have a 3.81 but it could have also been calculated as a 3.67. I don't know which they would use.
    What class could they have used to calculate differently? Just curious because I have an A in Statistics but had a B in college algebra but I heard that they don't accept Stats math courses as pre req???

    It is my understanding they would use your college algebra grade.....

    I'm sorry Mrsgood, I know how you feel. So, you, Kristen and I will know something tomorrow. (fingers crossed)

    Chall, I'm so sorry to hear the bad news. You should definitely appeal. Keep trying and register to take a class to replace your lowest grade. You will get there!!

    Anyone who has received their letters: My friend got her acceptance letter but it doesn't state a campus. Any idea how or when we get this information??

    mrsgood--last years forum said it came in a separate letter after they finished with the appeals.

    You're right, when I was accepted for the Spring 2011 term I received my campus assignment right after the appeals were complete......

    Just woke up due to working last night/early this morning at the hospital. My mail carrier doesn't come till around 3 usually (I live in Tampa). GPA is 3.66. I will let you know if I receive a letter and the status!

    Got my letter today and was denied because of my math. I took MGF 1106 Finite Math at USF, prenursing, thought it was equivalent to the College Algebra. Should I appeal?

    With a 3.57 GPA, I couldn't believe it, i thought i was safe, i was ONLY offer an alternate seat at HCC. I got A on all the Nursing Prerequisite classes, EXCEPT Anatomy & Phy II Lecture got a B and Sociology got a C.

    ENC 1101 = A
    MAC 1105 = A
    Anatomy & Physiology I = A
    Anatomy & physiology and Laboratory I =A
    Microbiology Lect = A
    Microbiology Lab =A

    Anatomy & Phy lecture II = B
    Anatomy & phy Laboratory II=A
    Sociology = C

    Isn't that a 3.57 over 4.00 GPA? I'm thinking to file for an APPEAL, not accepting an alternate seat.

    Is anyone knows for this fall 2011, what is the cutoff GPA's?
