    Believe me I know how you feel. I am not sure if I will get into the spring program. However, I already have a back up plan. If I don't get in for spring, I will have to reapply for fall. So While I wait to get in, I am going to take CNA classes to pass the time (gotta do something while I wait). Then depending how long I am going to have to wait to get into the RN program I may take the LVN and then go through the LVN to RN program. Good Luck to you though.

    For God's sake don't give up. The same thing happened to me.. passed all of my pre-reqs with an A or B and had a 3.0, well I applied and was put on a waiting list. They go by a points scale. Wouldn't you know they just started it right before it was time for me to submit my application. Some people said they would never get seated and changed over to LPN thinking it would be quicker to get seated that way, but my husband told me to stay right where I was.
    The points scale is like 3 pts. for a A, 2 pts for a B, 1 pt for a C, but if you have a previous degree in anything then you get like 7 pts and I don't have a previous degree so other people got seated before me, but YOU NEVER WILL BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED

    I was called two weeks later after the letters were sent out and they asked me if I still wanted a seat.. Because of the shortage they started a new class at one of their satellite locations instead of being at the main campus (this college has about 5 locations)..
    WHO KNEW THIS WOULD HAPPEN

    I SAID ALL OF THAT TO SAY THIS... WITH GOD ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.. THE COUNSELOR EVEN TOLD ME THAT I WAS WAY DOWN ON THE WAIT LIST AND SHE DON'T SEE HOW I GOT IN.. I TOLD HER IT WASN'T FOR HER TO UNDERSTAND... GOD GAVE ME THAT SEAT AND HE WORKED IT OUT..
    GRADUATING NEXT MAY 2004

    HANG IN THERE!

    Hi. I also think it would be a good idea to re-take your science classes. I know how hard that is to hear. There will always be way more people getting B's and A's over C's. If that college is the only one you can attend then increasing your grades in those science courses can only help.
    You might want to look at other schools as well. Now that the word is out that nursing is the place to be. The spot will fill more quickly.
    Good luck and I hope you get in next year!

    re-take the courses. dont sit and wait on the sidelines. i know it seems unfair, but if they cant fit everyone in, they have to be selective.
