Thanks for the reply...wow what a small world ehh? where did u grow up in queens??? As far as sooo many schools with nursing programs you are definitely right but its like i feel so discouraged because students pay tuition start taking courses then to find out there are so many cracks in the wall and you were told different by the office of admissions. Sorry for wailing out my problems everybody but im just sooo Fed UP
No need to apologize for "wailing", that is what we're all here for, to support each other.
It is a small world. I grew up Forest Hills, by the way, but had friends in and went to elementary and junior high in other parts of Queens, then spent high school and some time working in Manhattan, also lived in Brooklyn for a year or so. Stony Brook was about 5 years total.
You are not alone. There are so many of us out here along the way of applying, thinking of applying, waiting for letters back from, etc. re: nursing school.
I am waiting for a response from a nursing school. Everyone I know on the thread I've been on on this website who has applied to the school has gotten their letters back (and it turns out they've all been acceptances) in this past week, and my mail usually takes a little longer because of where I live now, so I'm just waiting for the mailman and feeling frustrated. It'll probably come Monday. Someone in Portland, OR got hers yesterday, so I thought surely I'd get mine today (I'm in Northern California, but I live in the boonies so my mail takes longer than someone who lives right in a city).
Anyway, please keep on sharing your thoughts, feelings and milestones along the way. The comraderie is so important!
