Is there ANYWHERE in Michigan with no waitlist? - page 2

I have heard Macomb Community College has none, is this true? Hearing conflicting things about Oakland CC, as well. Any others, even in the far-flung corners of our strangely shaped state?... Read More

    Yeah, I was thinking about doing my BSN at Oakland University or State, I'm gonna apply in January perhaps. But wouldn't OCC be cheaper in the longrun? Although it'd take me 2 years to get my prereqs done because I didn't take a science class this last semester (grr!), the place that I'd work at as an RN would usually pay for me to go to part time school for my BSN, no?

    And Suzanne4, I've seen you a lot on the forums, you seem very helpful! Which college did you graduate from? Do you recommend any specific one?

    Macomb doesn't have a waitlist, but they typically get 1000 applications for 120 spots. They also are not offering the accelerated program anymore which had added an extra 30 spots. There is also talk that they will soon change the gpa calculation to only count your pre-reqs and not just use the last 12 credit hours. Too many people would take "easy A" classes and not academic ones!

    Thanks for the responses!

    I am not taking any classes yet (hence my curiousity) and I'm angling towards starting at Macomb ASAP, working my damned hardest and then applying to the nursing program at Macomb, but also applying as a transfer student to other places as well...is that realistic? I figure even if I have to move to where I cannot live at home and take out more student loans, I wouldn't wrack up as much in loans in a community college for a couple years as the typical BSN student would. Kids are leaving school nowadays with tens of thousands of debt already saddled onto their back :trout:

    Just curious, who told you they are not offering the accelerated program anymore? That stinks, 30 less people! I think they should change their admission policy. I busted my butt to get an "A" in A & P, along with the other pre-req's to have a 4.0.

    I was really counting on them offering the accelerated program again; applied thinking I would get in on the next group (figuring they would start another group when the pilot group graduated in October). I know they were going to start one this past October (the classes were in the printed schedule books), but they couldn't get the faculty and clinical sites lined up. I would think they will eventually run it again, once they get their ducks in a row. Now that I am set to start the traditional program next month, I think it will be better for me and my family after all. I'm not in a hurry, I was just thinking the evening and weekend classes would make childcare issues more manageable . There are a lot of rumors that fly around the nursing program, so I take everything I hear with a grain of salt.
