    Any idea when we are going to find out! I called admissions on friday and they said 1 to 1 1/2 months? The last 2 years people found out this week! So nervous!

    Doing my last 2 pre-reqs now... They use a point system for the 5 required admission courses.. Not so much a GPA only.. They also said May, letters will be sent out.

    I have a 3.8 at bcc, but I have a bachelors from another school in business, and that gpa is not so wonderful I have everything done except micro. I have no idea what to expect?

    yeah i have a degree from massasoit and my gpa there was 3.75. i think they take all those courses and give you a number depending on your grade like an A is a 4, B is a 3, etc.. im hopihg my cumulative score is high enough to get in.. i just checked my DW and it says my last audit was today but no major change =( n holy crap MAY?! i feel like it gets later every year... are there any other schools around fall river that i could apply to as well without exceeding the deadline? i have my heart set on bcc and never appliee anywhere else and i dont wanna wait a year to start nursing.. is anyone elses DW recently audited too?

    Nope, no audit yet for me, my last was 2/21. I did all my pre reqs at BCC with a+'s in my sciences... but I fear my prior degree gpa will hurt me, we will see! No other schools around here that I am aware of besides ccri, massasoit and brockton hospital.

    My last audit was 3/12. No change either. I spoke with the director of Nursing and she gave me the breakdown on how they determine eligibility:
    They look at Eng101, Psy101, Bio233, Algebra & Chemistry.
    A+ =6pts
    A =5pts
    A- =4pts
    B+ =3pts
    B =2pts
    B- =1pt

    The best you can get is "30"pts.
    That is their first process of elimination, then GPA, then total pre-req completion.
