    They say 'by' May 17, so I really hope it's before...why can't they tell us earlier? It's nearly Finals and the stress is doubled!

    I have indigestion every day this week and couldn't sleep in some nights

    Good luck!

    Congratulations for getting in!!!!

    I have a question about registering. I have a date of June 16 since I am a new student. Every pre-req that I want to register for are closing up pretty quickly. Do they ever add more sections if they all fill up?

    Thanks and congrats

    Tracy

    Those, like Chem and Bio with labs, hardly ever get added more section because of lab space, etc... Others like psychology...tried to overtally.

    But for any classes, just wait till a week or two BEFORE the semester starts, usually people DROPPED them and some space will open up

    However that is very RISKY and does NOT GUARANTEE that u will get in
    But that is the only way I know and that how my friend got in Anatomy and Physiology II this semester...she did not get in, but got in later

    So try hard using that eSIMs to register, in August check for open section to see if someone dropped the class

    It is SAD but HUNTER is very crowded because it is a City school and the tuition is lower...it is a race just to get into pre-req class...so GOOD LUCK to u!!!

    Hi!

    I spoke to the pre-health advisor at Hunter. She was very nice but said that if I do not take Chem 100/101 over the summer I would not be able to apply to the program until Spring 2007.

    I want to take it at the community college near me but I am unsure which course that the CC is equiv. to Chem 100/101.

    Does anybody who goes to Hunter know where I can get this info? They only have info for CUNY schools available.

    I would hate to spend the money and then have them say that course is not equiv.

    Thanks

    Tracy

    Before you take the Chem outside of Hunter, you can go to the chem dept. and ask them. If they say yes, they will sign a form that will guarantee it for you. hope this helps.

    Thank daisywill
    I also apply to NYU as a backup...but it will cost me a lot, so I might have to take out loans
    This year Hunter will take 80 people...not that much considering a whole lot of people applied
    Anyhow, will know by May 17...right now I'm praying
    I am graduating from Hunter-Bellevue in two weeks. I took all my prequisites at Hunter main campus, but also applied to NYU, which I was also accepted. However, here's the catch with NYU (besides the tuition) - when I looked over the NYU program, it was going to take me an EXTRA YEAR to graduate - different school, different curriculum.

    I am curious about what people mean by a 2 year waiting list. If you are on the waiting list when you first apply for the fall and you don't make it, does your name get bumped off to the next year? That doesn't make any sense to me because it's not a first come first serve basis. Even if this was true, that they put you in the next year's pool, your score will probably end you up on the waiting list again. Anyone care to elaborate?

    Congrats! ephiphany on your near graduation from Hunter-Bellevue

    I just got accepted to both H-B and NYU, but I would definitely go to H-B because as u mentioned, the cost and the extra year is not worth it!

    I have a question for u regarding me being CONDITIONALLY ACCEPTED for I still have to pass Microbiology with a 'C' or better. I will take finals in two weeks and will get the grade about a week after. Do I :
    - Request an OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT to be send to Hunter-Bellevue School of Nursing
    - Print out UNOFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT online and mail it to them
    - And do I need a letter from the Professor stating that I passed his class?
    I already called the lady in charge and faxed the paper over. So what did u have to do 2 years ago when u got accepted? Did u have to do the same? What's the uniform look like?(Not that it matters, I really don't mind what I wear, just curios )

    Anyway, I worked so hard to get accepted into Hunter-Bellevue and I would hate to lose my chance because of a mistake :stone So lots of questions

    Also any advice you can give me on how to prepare for the next 2 years as a nursing student at H-B? Now that I got in, I worry a lot whether or not I can make it through.

    PS: I THINK by '2-year waiting list' might mean it takes 2 years after becoming a Hunter student to take nursing pre-req classes before can apply into the program

    Yes, that's what I think confused me. It's more like a two year wait rather than being on a waiting list for two years.

    ps. I wrote you directly about your questions.

    Hi!

    I am a transfer student entering Hunter in the Fall. I took the math compass test and I thought that it was hard. I did not do very well so I have to take a pre 101 workshop this summer. I have taken college algebra before and passed but I still have to take the workshop to move on at Hunter.

    The test was taken on the computer and in my opinion was in advanced algebra and trig. If you are good at those you will do fine.

    Good luck

    Tracy

    I am finishing up my first year in Hunter and planning to go into the field of nursing.. i know the hunter program is really good, but really competitive as well (that's why i am killing myself for the grades!! and finals are almost here!! ><) .. I want to apply hunter in next year, yet, at the same time, i want to apply to NYU ... do they need prequistes classes like Hunter do? i havent checked out the schools yet.. but i am thinking private or SUNY

    thanks
