hi, i am considering taking the pre-nursing courses at BMCC, and want to know if i can start in the Summer 2013 session or if new students are not permitted to take Summer courses? (i want to take the CHE121 course so i can move on to AP1 in the fall)
the online application only allows you to apply for Fall 2013; no one ever answers the phone at the school & all voicemails you reach are full and won't accept messages; and i actually went to the school and there was only 1 woman at admissions who said it was "too late" to apply for Summer courses ... but it's only December? this woman also said i couldn't speak to any counselors or get advice about how to start classes until i had applied to and been accepted to the school. it seems weird to start a long, expensive, and intensive process when you aren't permitted to ask any questions not addressed on the website before plunging in.
i am a self-employed adult (30 yrs old) new to the world of academia. i can definitely see BMCC is going to be a guidance-free experience, but i'm going to give it a shot i think, starting with the basics. i was very successful in high school but i have no idea how i will do in a college class. maybe not enough to get into a competitive nursing program, but i would like to try, and CHE121 seems like step one.
also, does anyone know if eventual applicants to the Night program are admitted based on only their GPA from the 4 main pre-reqs (plus an entrance exam i think), or does it also average in the grades from the additional courses required for completion before the Night program?
