Hey All, I have applied to the nursing program at WNC and was wondering if anyone else on here has applied and what there total points were. It's giving me such bad anxiety, all this waiting!!!... Read More
- 0Jun 17, '12 by lonelylistI spoke with a few of my friends that have applied but they have not heard anything either.
Yes, we should hear by Wednesday according to the application.
I too am very stressed - I've doubts that my 17 points will be enough this year. They had 10 Kaplan classes with a max of 20 people per class - I think most classes were full, leaving 200 possible applicants this year.
10% scoring 4 pts = 20 people (assume 19pts)
20% scoring 3 pts = 40 people (assume 18pts)
35% scoring 2 pts = 70 people (assume 17pts)
20% scoring 1 pts or less = 40 people (assume 16 pts)
15% 0 points (fail a section) = 30 people
Assuming every applicant has max points for grades/pre-req and in state point and we have a possble 40 to 48 spots this year. I don't think our chances are very good unless a large portion of those 18/19 people applied at both WNC and TMCC and were accepted into to TMCC and choose to go there.
However, even if the above is true, the pool of applicants with 17pts is probably vast meaning most if any of these numbers will NOT make it into one of the open spots.
Of course, I'm completely speculating and I really do hope I'm wrong.
I also beleive that WNC will email those who are not getting in and send letters to those whom are accepted or put on the wait list. It seems to make financial sense rather than send out letters to all 200 applicants. I think they'll send letters to those who will be accepted because they'll need to send forms for those people to accept or decline their spot.
I guess we should all know by Wendesday either way.
