    Hello Everyone,

    I am applying to the CCBC Essex nights and weekends program for the fall of 2012. I am hearing all the stories about those either getting in or rejected for the Spring day program. Wanted to maybe start a thread for those whole applying with me and maybe relate to my anxiety! LOL
    I'm not applying to CCBC, but just wanted to say "hey!". We were in A&P II together during spring of 2011.

    Good luck! You are so smart, I am sure you will be chosen!!

    I sat on the right hand side of the classroom next to Daria (sp??). She was insanely smart! I was also in your lab class, sat next to Kate & Daria in that one as well.

    Hershey was ridiculously hard with that darn overhead projector and all lecture! UGH!

    I am not applying to CCBC at all (did last year and was rejected). After the rejection I decided to take my pre-reqs for my bachelor's, and have applied to UMSON for this fall. Highly doubt I will be accepted there either since I am currently in Stats and need to take A&P II over since I only earned a C.

    Yeah, Hershey wasn't the best at explaining things and when his fiancÚ died he was all over the place. Poor man though, that had to be hard. Can't believe he never missed a class. Tryin to remember you. Where in lab did you sit in relation to me? Esposito wasn't easy either with his lab/lecture exams. I was quite relieved when that class was over. You'll have to let me know about USOM. When do you find out? This wait is killing me and it's only February. When you applied to CCBC what was your GPA and teas if you don't mind me asking? Did you apply to nights and weekends? You should have applied to both this time around. Sorry if there are no spaces between the paragraphs. When I use my phone it never allows me to use my return.

    I, too, can't believe he never missed a class. Unreal! My mom passed away 2wks before this past fall semester, and I had to make the decision if I was going to return right away or not. I came to the conclusion that if I didn't...I wouldn't want to. So, I jumped right back in and made straight A's for the semester (THREE classes, working FT, 3 kids, etc.)...not an easy feat by far I don't foresee us finding anything out for at least another 2 months. My GPA and TEAS at the time I applied? Oh gosh, I know I had a proficient on my TEAS (same as now), and my GPA for the courses that they looked at was right around a 3.2 I believe? So, not that wonderful. I was waitlisted, and then ultimately rejected. I applied to N/W.

    Wow, sorry to hear about your mother. I can't imagine how hard that must have been. But it shows a lot about your character that you came back an had amazing results. I really hope you get in. So where do you live that you're applying all the way near DC? What made you decide not to apply to CCBC again? Did you ever think about the LPN program? I can't believe how competitive CCBC is. I mean a 3.2 GPA is pretty darn good. I guess though that since they only accept 40 people it makes it that much more difficult. I would love to apply to Hopkins but 67K a year is insane.

    UMSON is in downtown Balto, I live in Abindgon No DC for me!! I decided to NOT apply to CCBC again once I was turned down. I made the decision right then and there to change my course of direction, and worked on my pre-reqs for the bachelor's program instead. No, never thought about LPN. I just know if I am rejected once again, I am applying again in the spring Hopkins has been a DREAM of mine since I was a kid! I can't stomach the cost either, plus, when I walked into UMSON I immediately felt...this is where I want to be

    For some reason I thought you mentioned UM Shady Grove that's why I was thinking DC. I would love to go to UMSON. I was looking there but unfortunately I can only do nights and weekends. All the bachelor's programs around here are all day programs. I would need nutrition and chemistry too UMSON. You're definitely gonna have to let me know how it goes. I know what you mean about having a good feeling about a place and being set on going there. I really hope it works out for you.

    Hello everyone! I'm also applying for the 2012 E/W Nursing Program. I've already completed my application and now we just have to wait I guess. I am wondering how many people actually apply for the E/W Nursing at CCBC for the Fall. Does anyone know?

    The wait definitely sucks. From what I've heard there is about 100 people who apply for the E/W program and they accept anywhere from 40/48 people. So I have to ask...what's your GPA and TEAS score?

    From what I've heard, they only use the 5 essential grades to determine the GPA. A&P1. A&P2, Micro, Eng101, and I think the Psy 101. I'm currently finishing A&P2 but my GPA for the other 4 classes is a 4.0. What I'm worried about is the fact that I am finishing three classes right now, A&P2, Psy104, and Soc101, so I only have 23 out of the 33 credits required. Also, I haven't taken classes at CCBC, I'm transferring from BCCC. I don't know if that is a huge factor. I just took my TEAS this week and I received an advanced status, 86.7%. I'm nervous because of previous posts where someone has said there really is no rhyme or reason to how they choose.

    That's a really good TEAS score. My sucked but just didn't feel like taking them over. Here is what CCBC uses. They actually use 3 GPAs. The 1st is your overall GPA, the 2nd GPA only includes Eng 101, Psych 101, A&P I and II and Micro. The last GPA they use is Eng. 101, 102, Psych 101, Psych 103, Soc 101, Speech, Math, A&P I and II and Micro. That is 2/3 of the scoring and the last 1/3 is your teas. And CCBC, like all other schools go give preference to those who took their pre reqs at CCBC. Hope that helps.

    Did you apply anywhere else?

    I didn't apply anywhere else because CCBC was the closest college to me besides Maryland. I didn't want to do the BCCC program because they don't offer nights and weekends. Also, other colleges, such as Howard CC, require a different entrance exam, not the TEAS. My plan is to finish my Associates at CCBC and then to transfer to Maryland for the one year program, AA to BSN. I think this will be cheaper for me seeing as I really don't want a large amount of student loans and I can receive financial aid from FAFSA for the community college. I just hope my overall performance is enough to outshine the fact that I haven't been at CCBC and I haven't finished all of the pre-nursing requirements. :icon_roll
