Well hello everyone, I am sorry I haven't posted in a while... I have been trying to get finished with the spring semester and get all requested items to the nursing department before they do their first review of applicants (thankfully I am done). If you are not in the first review, you might as well forget it. They passed out over 400 applications and there is only 35 spots available for new students. To top it off, this is the first time they have had to put a cap on the program, so they completely seem disorganized to say the least. (I am so frustrated here)
They are doing there process different than before so I really can not rely on present nursing students to even tell me how it will go. They are not doing an interview and no essay to write. They will not even get to know the real me and why I despirately want to be a nurse. All they will know is that I have passed my NET test, a 3.0 GPA (not the best), all my pre-reqs done and only a couple of general ed's left to do. They will know that I have passed my current two classes (chem and sociology) with "A's but nothing else. How do schools pick an applicant like this? A point system maybe?
I am just extremely worried and basically looking for some words of encouragment.
Please send me some good vibes, crossed fingers, prayers perhaps.... Anything and everything welcomed....
