    Oh wow! Ill have to tell my mom to check the mail when she gets off work! I applied for january too and was #5 on the alternate list (if someone dropped out before the deadline I take their place) and no one droppped!! I'm so anxious to find out. If u don't mind me asking what's your program gpa?

    Ohmylove- you should get in if you were on the alternate list last time. You need a 3.0 gpa or higher in order to fall into the first round of picks plus whoever finishes their pre-reps first, gets in first, even if that person has a lower gpa then you. Best of luck to you!

    Hmmm. I applied for the Fall start term at SCC and didn't get in. I was still in classes at the application time, so I didn't think that I would get in anyhow BUT....the denial letter said that they only let in Tier 1 (completed all classes) with a GPA of 3.9 or higher. faron81 - you mentioned a GPA of 3.0 or higher...can I ask, did you not have a 3.9 or a 4.0? Thanks!

    Maybe you need a 3.9 or higher if you fall under category 3 (go to scc website to see category info.) since you were still taking classes during the application period. At the information sessions, they said it's basically impossible to get in the program under the 3rd category bc there's so many people applying. I had a 3.2 gpa but I finished all of my pre-reqs last summer. I didn't get selected for the Jan. program bc it was filled with students from the previous Fall and Spring semesters. When I applied last time, there were over 300 applicants for only 100 seats.

    The letter stated that they only let in Tier 1 with a 3.9 GPA or higher, which we (some of the ones that didn't get in) thought was kinda crazy that there were 100 students with 3.9 & 4.0's. I emailed the school to find out what is up with that, maybe (hopefully for my sake) it was a typo. Thanks for your quick response back!

    Not sure what they mean by Tier 1, but I didn't get in with having a 3.9 or higher. I have a 3.2, my bestfriends is 3.8, and another friends was 3.1 so as you can see, none of us had a 3.9 or above. However, we did finish last summer so that's how we got in plus we fell under category one. Usually nursing manager is pretty good about answering her emails fairly quickly, but keep in mind that the schools probably closed today bc of Memorial day, so it might take a day or two for her to get back with you. Best of luck to you!!

    SCC divides the categories into tiers or categories - just depends on which information sheet you have from them. Tier 1 = Category 1 which is successful completion of ALL of the required nursing general education courses and support courses with a re-calculated GPA of 3.0 or better. So you were in Category 1 (Tier 1), but they had stated that only those in Tier 1 with a GPA of 3.9 got in, which is obiviously an incorrect statement. Seems almost as bad of a typo as the colleges that sent out acceptance letters to students and then had to tell them they sent the wrong letter and they didn't really get in. Almost as bad, but not quite!
