    Thank you for that information. It is so nice discussing this with other students in the same boat as I am!!! I was thinking the same thing when I registered the application, I clicked "either" as well. I decided I will make it work. I too am a single mother, PurplePRN... god bless you for pushing through, I know it is difficult!!! For that matter God bless everyone going through this turmoil. It is so challenging pushing for & dedicating your time and life for something you may not get accepted into. However, I believe whether you think you will or think you wont, it will happen. So with that said, has anyone gotten any idea when we will hear the official word? I understood three weeks give or take. I don't know what the heck to do with my nervous energy LOL....
    You are so right - that is one of the other reasons I made this post, aside from being a nervous wreck about the TEAS. So many of us are going through this together, I truly hope we get it, all of us! I'm REALLY hoping that since the new building is supposed to be opening up Spring 2013, maybe they will take more applicants? Has anyone heard anything about this being a possibility? I was at school last night and read the paper which stated the nursing area is state of the art w/mannequins that actually cry, sweat, and bleed - how cool is this!! I sooooo want to be apart of this, I want it so bad I can taste it!

    I picked nights but also picked either and I figured if its days I will round up a sitter before and after class. Most people said the science was the worst. I check my emails everyday, hoping its really early and they know lol

    I gave my Teas on September 26, 2012 -- I believe that was the last day to take TEAS. I got a 74.7 composite score and 78 on my reading. I completed all my pre-requisites and have a 3.6 GPA. I am not sure how the odds are given the less amount of applicants and my average scores. I pray I make it.

    I just want to add with last semesters "lowest acceptance score", there were a lot of applicants who declined their spot into the JJC program (due to acceptance into another Nursing Program, or other life events) so what the department did was go down the list and start calling people (in order of their "rank") until all spots were filled up. So those scores aren't much of a refection of how well the last class did.... Just wanted to let you guys know. Those who had a lower score and got an "acceptance call" were the lucky ones and their acceptance wasn't really based on their score but of open seats in the program - and from what I heard it was a rare occurance.

    Good Luck to you all!

    ALSO!!
    Along with the whole getting away from the "drama", if you are fortunate you will find life long friends within your groups - but there are always going to be people like that everywhere.
    I was fortunate enough to be paired up with the most awesome clinical group! We are organized, friendly, helpful, and drama-free. I can't say the same for all the groups though. We even formed a study group, and we collaborate AMAZINGLY!!

    raqi89 ~ Thank you for the input! I hope to find a group as positive as yours!

    Does anyone know if they send rejection emails as well as acceptance ones? That would stink to see people getting accepted and have an empty mailbox.

    Thanks for the info Raqui! I agree that study groups are awesome and you gain friendships from them as well.

    PurplePRN-- my email said we would receive an email stating we were either accepted or rejected. Trying to stay patient!

    YES, YOU WILL GET AN EMAIL EITHER WAY---SAYING YOU ARE ACCEPTED OR SAYING "DUE TO THE LARGE AMOUNT OF QUALIFIED APPLICANTS YOU WERE NOT ACCEPTED i WAS HOPING TODAY WAS THE DAY, BUT NOTHING YET....


    LOL, TRYING TO BE PATIENT TOO.... BUT IT SO ISN'T WORKING OUT THAT WAY

    So I hear it will be this Friday or beginning of next week but we should def know by Tuesday. Fingers crossed. Don't forget to register for classes between now and then if you are able because if u plan on going to another school for associate or bachlors they usually want more classes to be taken. So either way we can keep pushing forward. Good luck everyone.

    How do you get all this great info? LOL! Thanks for sharing!

    I'm actually not worried about it anymore. I had a life event happen in the last couple weeks that really put things into perspective. So either way, I'll accept what it is with grace. Okay.......so I will be a bit let down if I don't get in, but, not laying in bed crying all day depressed like I may have been three weeks ago. I know I'll be an excellent nurse, and I will get there one way or another.
