Mass Bay Fall 2011

  1. Hello! Is anyone applying to MBCC for Fall 2011? I didn't get in last year, this year I'll have a 4.0 GPA and 30 credits all from Mass Bay. I really hope to get in this time but the system seems so secretive. Is there any benefit in calling to show my enthusiasm I wonder? I know the decisions are made in Feb and letters mailed out in April, fingers crossed...good luck to you all too.

    I am.. 3.96 GPA and 28 MB credits but you never know. Now I am hearing you aren't even considered unless you are FINISHED with A&P 2 and Micro, which I am taking this semester. Really hope to get in though! As far as calling, it is hard to even find out who to contact, it does seem to be very secretive!

    I just got my acceptance letter for Mass Bay, September 2011 evening Nursing class. I think they take each student on a case by case basis when choosing. I am taking A&P and microbiology now but I did read that you need to have both completed before consideration. I think they took into account the fact that I have another non-medical degree from MassBay so all those classes helped me. Anyone else out there get in or hope to? Best of luck to the two previous commenters...I will hope for you!

    Congratulations!! That is so exciting! I'm surprised though that you got a letter so early, I didn't think they accepted into the evening program until August/September because the evening program starts in January and day starts in September. Good for you though! I'm sure all of your credits were a big help! I'll be sure to get in touch with you directly if I get into the program as well so we can stay in touch about it!! Congrats again!

    Congratulations! I am very happy for you. It sounds like you have been waiting for a while so you deserve it! I am in the evening program but it is nice to chat with someone who will be going through the same thing. Please keep in touch...anyone else get a letter?

    No letter yet, you?

    Has anyone heard that you now need a nutrition course and another psychology course (Life Sciences) to graduate? It still isn't on the list of Nursing requirements but I heard from a few other students. Hopefully you get letters soon!

    I didn't have either of those, and haven't heard anything similar....but it does seem to be getting more and more competitive. Good luck.
