UCF 2013 Accelerated BSN - page 18

Hello everyone. I'm new to allnurses.com and I just wanted to say congrats to those who got into the 2012 UCF nursing program this summer. I am a prenursing student at UCF as I am still working on... Read More

    Really. I am very discouraged by the way the admission process is going (but this is similar to previous admission problems with UCF) although I am positive about changing my career soon.
    When I originally applied to UCF, I was sent confirmation letters 1 week before classes start, with a note that I would not be allowed to apply for classes until I complete orientation, which had already passed. So basically, good luck with that. This happened with two different semesters. I just think the application process at UCF is very trying. That is why I opted to take my last pre-req course and a nursing elective this semester so I wouldn't have to deal with that again.

    That's smart on your end. I transferred my credits from New York ( i have a degree in finance) and also decided to take the last pre-reqs at UCF so I could be established In their degree audit system. It's a tiring process I give you that. I haven't had any major problems but it's very easy to lose track of everything,

    Btw, we might be in the same group on the day of the interview. I reserved a 9am time.
    I pray it all goes smooth. I'm nervous but I was reading on other threads that the first UCF interview that took place for Cocoa and Daytona Beach campuses wasn't so bad and the fact that it is a group interview helps. So, here is to hoping that all goes well.

    That's helpful. I had not read those. Where did you find those treads? I just wonder how they are going to decide between us, since we are all considered qualified at this point. Everything will go well, I'm sure.

    Honestly it is ridiculous. Mistakes like that should be few and far between and it sounds like they are far too common. I'm amazed that there were not one but two critical mistakes on my information. How'd they miss the 2nd mistake when they fixed the first and why did I not receive an e-mail saying you are not eligible because ____ so I could have fixed it prior to invites? They say "so sorry". But have no idea the stress we go through during that time. Last time it was about 4 hours. This time since 3pm on thursday and still going.
    The thing that is frusterating me now is they told me they will see what they can do but there are only so many appt. times and invites were already sent. I didn't reply so to not sound like a pain, but we all know the interviews are 4-6 people so they can certainly add a person to a group of 4 or 5 with no problem. I assume that is what they will do but hope there is no more red tape. I did my part. It was not my mistake. I also assume at least one person declines the interview because they are going with another program or something.
    Connie at CON wasn't very happy to hear about the mistake made and said she would notify someone because it just shouldn't be happening. I agree. It's not a minor mistake. It's a huge life changing mistake for the student involved! Praying I get an answer before the office closes today.

    HELLO DEAR FUTURE NURSES!!

    After collaborating through private messaging with Gradius (Gradius I hope you don't mind I'm disclosing your blog username ), we have decided to add a poll to our thread which will ask you subscribers the following question: "what time slot did you receive for 03/22 interview?"
    We are hoping that by including this poll, it will allow those of you on here who were invited to the interview to have a better idea of who you might be interacting with in the group during the interview. We also hope that this will lower our anxiety a little bit.
    Thank you Gradius for a great idea and please all of you out there participate.

    Thanks.

    You go fight this girl! Express to them what you just told us on here. This should not be happening. Those are life changing decisions for us and for them a bunch of papers that have to be dealt with. Don't take no for an answer. I wouldn't!!

    First I'm going to let them resolve it with the right outcome. If they do not, then I will unleash the fury! Have to be careful. I don't want to cause a ruckus and get blacklisted! LOL From you guys I know about the various group sizes so I assume that the person I have been e-mailing will find that out and it will be resolved. This would have all gone much smoother I"m sure if Alton Austin were in the office. It seems he was the person they thought should handle this!

    It seems many of us have had different challenges from different staff members. I hope all of the bumps in the road are because of the transition in formatting and not indicative of problems with the college's structure. I pray we all (who have been chatting here, because we obviously care a great deal) get in.

    Interview time secure... I called at 8:03am. I will see some of you for the 9am Interview.

    By the way I was wondering, would anyone else be interested in everyone having a (subtle) way of identifying fellow Interviewees from this thread on Interview day? (Since we are just a portion of the 100 or so) For example, we could each carry 3 red pens in the open, I was thinking. To the average person outside of this thread that would be just a coincidence, seeing multiple people with red pens. But to those of us on this thread, it could help ease introductions before we enter our Interview room, e.g. say 3 of us run into each other on the elevator, or in the main lobby, etc?

    Just curious... if not, no biggie.
