Hi fellow classmates!! I am so excited that I found this forum, and will have the oppurtunity to exchange conversation with some of you before starting in Sept. I am just so estatic that I got accepted!!!
I say this because I don't do well on those computer placement tests, I am a hardworking, over acheiver and do so well in school, but once it comes to timed tests like the placement tests, I crumble. And, with that being said, I did exactly that. My first time taking the accuplacer in Feb. I got a 86 in Reading Comprehension, 105 in Sentence Skills and 85 in Arithmetic. I was told that I had to take it again to even be able to fill out the application, until then you could not even submit it even if you wanted to.
So, after waiting their 30 day period between exams, I went back on March 9th and this time I did the Reading Comprehension again, I wanted to do the whole test again and try and up the scores of every category, but working two jobs and going to school fulltime at Cape Cod Community College already, I only had time to do the category that was keeping me from meeting their requirements. Luckily, I took it and I scored exactly the 96 that I needed to apply.
I took the application home, debated on just applying to the Part time program and waiting and then I just said heck, I'll send it in and whatever happens, happens. I called Quincy to see if they got it, and the advisor there said that she had received it and that she would make sure all components were there and okay it before it goes through the review process. She went through it and said exactly this, "I see you have everything there, and you have all the courses completed and everything we require on paper, but I am a bit concerned about the Reading Comprehension score." At that point I just said, I have the score that the admissions requirements state, I have ALL the pre reqs done and then some and I am a great student, so I will just give it a shot and if I don't get in I'll go for the Part time.
The lady turned out to be very nice, and because of her uncertainty, I didn't think I got in and planned on sending another application, taking the accuplacer again and paying another 50.00 for the Part time program.
However, to my surprise, I received a letter of acceptance! It makes sense though because I was told by a friend that they extended their deadline for Fulltime to May 15th because they didn't get the amount of applicants that they expected to!!!
Where is everyone from!? I am coming from the Cape, my older brother was accepted as well, so interestingly he and I will be classmates! Did everyone pay their seat deposit/Matriculation fee? Did anyone get the next packet with the immunization information and orientation info???
I am excited and nervous all in one!!!
Hope to hear from you all!
