    [QUOTE=Russl66;4080292]Kamryn2007, I agree I think your choice for going to SB was a good route for you. My friend who was in my Anatomy class just got her acceptance letter into SB's accelerated BA to BS program starting for Fall2010. She was sort of in the same position as you and went back to become a nurse and got right in!
    As for me, I currently volunteer in the ER in a hospital. I chose to volunteer just to get some experience and get my feet wet and to see what goes on. I enjoy it, I've been doing in for about 3 months now. My grades in my pre-reqs are:

    A= Eng101
    B+=Psy101
    B+=A&P I **
    B+=A&P II **I was literally a point and a half away from getting an A in both anatomys!
    Micro= taking now, Spring 2010>>>shooting for that A!

    how do you think I stand?

    And when did you get your letter in the mail from Suffolk??


    yes I know all about those kinds of unfair grading, it happened to me also,,, as far as your grade they are of course excellent grades and in IMHO I think you have a really good chance of getting in,
    but Like I have said it so many times in this thread over and over, its all about what you are up against. the pool of applicants will determine where you fall,,,
    by the way I have my micro books the text and the lab books, the text is in excellent condition, but I have written over the lab book, which if you ask me is pretty helpfull, if you are interested, let me know, I going there may this friday to sell them back at the book store if I don't sell them on my own.
    good luck.

    Kamryn, thank you and I hope your opinion will be right! ha but yes I know what you mean. I am looking very forward to taking Micro next week. I have heard it's very interesting and much different than Anatomy. I usually look on ebay once I find out the required texts for my classes and get pretty decent deals. I might be interested if you don't mind, however I like to wait once class starts to find out what they want for the required texts, but I'm not sure if you would want to wait that long.

    hey Russl,

    I have not sold the books yet, I have not had a chance to do, so if you need them still, let me know?

    Hi Kamryn,

    I just wanted to let you know that I received my letter from Suffolk and I am on the waiting list for the Grant campus. I guess I can't be fully disappointed, at least I was not denied! They said this semester was one of the most competitive semesters. I just hope now that I will possibly hear some good news being that I have a 50/50 chance so we'll see. How long did it take until you heard your response from the waiting list? Did they say how many seats opened up and how were you notified?

    Hope to hear from you soon!

    congratulations on getting on the waiting list, that is really good news.

    as far as all your questions, there really is no way to know about those,,, the pool of applicant varies every year and they are very tight lipped about what your chances are.

    keep praying and don't give up.

    Thanks Kamrym I appreciate it. I will definitely do that, I am thankful to at least have a possible chance and if I do not get in I will just reapply for spring/next fall. Yes I've already tried asking those questions to the admissions and they won't budge!

    I know the applicant pool is different every year, but do you know how the competition was to get in when you applied and what the gpa cutoff was because if you got in then I might possibly have a chance. This year at grant they said all the 60 applicants ALL had A's. I've heard of this in the past but didn't believe it..woww...........Ammerman they were a little more selective with.

    **when did you hear a respond that you got in from the waitlist? was it more closer to the semester starting or right after the people who didn't pay there deposits got dropped?....I just need a little bit of light shed! lol
    AND, did they call you to let you know you got in, or sent your response through mail??

    hello Russl i feel your pain, I was there last year!!!. as far as the gpa cut off I did not have all A's in my pre-reqs more like B+'s my situation was different since I had a bachelor from stony brook and a solid science background,,I had chem I, and II, physics I, II, bio I and II , calculus I and II statics, which are the core of the science, there is more i just don't remember right now, but to make a long story short,, I got in not b/c of the pre-req only but over all application. if you read on their web site they even state that ppl with a prev degree are measured differently. as far as hearing from them, their later was dated june 4th,,I was just annoyed b/c their dead line was like dec 31st and that to me was a long wait. not sure of their reason for that was handled. so the only reason I was wait listed was b/c i did not have all the A's in the 4 pre-reqs. hope this helps. again keep your fingers crossed. kamryn
