Okay, I got the bad news last week, but did not have the heart to come back here until I licked my wounds a little.
I got my rejection letter, and an answer to an email from the nursing counselor telling me, it could be 2-3 semesters more before i get accepted!!!! I first applied in Feb. 2003, and they are just now getting to the feb.2002's.
If i was a straight A or mostly A's, I could've gotten in right away, but alas i am not. Anywhere from 200-300 students apply to the nursing program each semester, with only 30-40 being accepted. Half of them are taken by highest grades (in the impor. pre-reqs), i have C's and one A. the other half are from the chronological list, which is what i've been shoved on. I'm soooo bummed, because when i first started taking classes, there wasn't that much interest, so i could've gotten in as soon as i was finished with my pre-reqs! Now it's totally impacted.
Anyone out there like me? I will continue to take classes, so that i keep fresh, but i am feeling discouraged. Any words of wisdom/encouragement from anyone, I could really use it!

i'm pulling for you two guys! keep us posted as the acceptances come rolling in next year! and just think, when i'm miserably struggling along this fall, you guys will be enjoying yourselves! :chuckle
okay, so maybe that's not very comforting ... what do you plan on doing in the meantime? do you have any more pre-reqs to take? or could you retake some and maybe bump up your gpa? or will you just chill out and take off of classes for a bit? (end quote from manna)
no, i have been done with my pre-reqs for a while now, and they will not allow us to retake classes to get the grade higher, unless it was a d or f. of course mine were c's! i was only 14 pts. from a b last sem. dang it! i don't think i will just hang back since i'm afraid i'll forget too much. i'll keep taking classes that will help me in nursing ~ even though it will not help me to get in. at least the classes will count at other community colleges, but i am on the waiting list there too. it's like this everywhere in s. ca.
thanks for your encouragement. and good luck to you manna, i am so proud of you! hang in there agent, with high marks, i'm sure you'll get in next time! heather
