    the names of instructors have been edited out. this is a very public and very busy bulletin board. we do not want anyone hurt.

    please. in the future, if you want to discuss a particular instructor from a particular institution, you can utilize the private messaging (pm) or chat functions of this bulletin board.

    thank you for your understanding!

    I had called a main number, asked to be transferred to the Nursing Department and once there asked the person who answered about the waiting list. Was told that there was not one.
    Thanks! It was someone from admissions that told me there was a waiting list. Very confusing!

    I should have used better judgement when deciding to use names. It wasn't my intent to hurt anyone. Thanks for editing!

    No need for apologies. We've had problems with instructor's names being mentioned in the past. Just trying to prevent repeating them. No harm done, though!

    By the way, congrats on the new RN!

    Cheers!

    same here, i did not mean any harm by using names.

    when i visited the admissions office, i was given a packet of info regarding the nursing program. the first page reads, and i quote, "The college does not maintain a wait list for admission. Some students have found it necessary to apply two or three times before being admitted to the clinical sequence. However, other eligible students, but with a lower pre-clinical index have not been admitted in successive years."

    so there ya go...straight from the bmcc information i received. no wait list!

    we're going to visit bmcc next week my boyfriend is interested in applying there. he's completed all his pre-reqs down here in miami, he's ready to be starting clinicals. his grades are not all A's would you recommend that he doesn't transfer anything in?

    also, he is a certified nurse assistant in florida, does anyone know the process he would have to undergo to become certified in nyc?

    I heard that the lowest GPA accepted for this fall is 3.7ish. Not sure of the exact number but i am sure it was 3.7, so I would speak to a counselor if he falls below that. I am starting my pre-reqs now at BMCC I hear its very competitive. :stone

    wow 3.7 is really high. I'm a little confused, is this for the BS degree? Is it the cum. GPA from all classes or just the pre-reqs? I'm attending Hunter and really worried that I won't make it into the nursing program so i'm looking around for less competitive schools. But BMCC seems even more difficult to get into than Hunter.

    THANKS IN ADVANCE!!
    As a former New Yorker and graduate of a school in NYC, I would just like to know what and where is BMCC? It is so hard to follow a discussion when you are out of the loop, so to speak!...Thanks for your answers in advance

    thanks. this summer i'm taking it easy - kinda of. i'm trying to read as much as possible before school is starting. i heard a lot of scary stories...hehee.

    i was wondering do you know a maggie from bmcc? i believe she graduated during the same time as you but i think she's a day student. currently she tutors in the lab..

    good luck to you!
