    Hi blueangel .. I applied to the Wall cohort and got my notice that I have been wait listed.

    My numbers/info:
    Undergrad gpa 3.00
    All Prereqs all A's working on last class (MicroBiol) now with A avg
    Hesi Score 88.3
    Current Job: CNA 1 year

    Wondering if you know or anyone knows the size of waitlist and what
    percentage of accepted people normally go on to enroll? Just wondering my chances

    I also submitted my application to NJCU in Jersey City for consideration. They told me
    I would be first considered for Wall and then JC.

    hey traudel,

    congrats on at least being waitlisted! From what I've heard there's a pretty good chance you can get accepted.. not everyone who gets accepted goes because they get in other places. Ill definitely keep my fingers crossed for you!

    I had a 3.2 gpa, A's and B+s on pre-reqs and got a 91 on the HESI so i hope im at least waitlisted!

    When did you get the notice? I applied to JC cohort and am waiting for the acceptance notice. They said it would take 6-8 weeks to get noticed by mail. Is it really taking so long to be noticed?

    I applied late January to Wall cohort and received notice first week of March.
    They also told us about 6 weeks. Maybe JC takes longer cause bigger class ..
    and more applicants ? .. dunno .. Good Luck.

    The deadline to mail the acceptance letter w the $500 check was March 18, 2013. Orientation is on April 05, 2013. Last year, I knew someone who was called in the day before orientation and she had to bring in a $500 check to orientation. So be ready with the check! I hope you get a call from NJCU!
