    thanks radmom,

    I am doing the day program. At this point I am leaning towards Farmingdale. However, I missed the orientation for Farmingdale because of a death in the family I feel so out of the loops. I still have so many questions even after going to the school and making my schedule. I feel like if I go to NCC I'll be on the same level as everyone because I will be able to make the orientation.

    But the location of Farmingdale and the hospital I chose are much closer to where I live.

    haha the interview isnt that serious, you could send a thank you card but you sit with 3 random people ...one says hi, one says you need this class by 2011, one says heres your registestration card, go register


    they dont even ask some people anything, its really like advisement ..best way to describe it

    they want you to acknowledge you have to take so and so classes by so and so time

    you have an essay

    vocabulary terms ..define temperature, is a work I had lol
    they havent turned anyone away, even if they didnt know the vocabulary
    ummmm i think that covers it

    oh yeah think about it this way
    \

    they have 150 applicants right? they have to interview all 150 before they interview the people that are accepted for the evening program ON THE SAME DAY

    you do the math ..or not, nurses are great at science. .not so much at math lol

    Its official I got into ncc nursing program. I know about the interview. My question is what topics do they ask you to write about in the essay. If I could get some specifics that would be great. Thanks in advance.

    I also just got my letter. The interview is scheduled for Tuesday, May 19 9:00am. Anyone that has gone through the process please post on what it was like. What was the essay topic? Are the vocabulary words written or part of the oral interview? Please give as many details as you can!

    ok now I can legitimately post on this thread haha. Received my letter today from NCC stating I was "tentatively accepted pending an interview." Does anyone have any information on this interview thing? My interview is scheduled for May 18th at 11:00am. Anyone get a letter or know anything?!?!

    hey kelly11101,

    when i applied to NCC i believe my gpa was around a 3.7-8

    the grades i received were a&p1 - B+, a&p2 - A, psy - A, mat - B+, for the core classes and A's in electives i took. i was rejected for the spring 08 semester.
    i had those same grades when i applied to farmingdale and i received a 129 on the nursing pre exam.

    hope this helps!

    How could a school have a wait list of 2 - 4 yrs? There's no way they could foresee the pool of applicants that far in advance.

    let’s say that admit 30 students admitted each semester. if there is 120 applications that would cause an estimated one year wait. if the following semester 60 more applications are submitted then this would add an additional semester wait. the more the applications stack up the longer the “estimated” wait is. basically it’s an estimated guess based on the average amount of applications they get per semester.

    I dont mean to call you out but thats not a wait list. If the pool of applicants is becoming increasingly competitive then there is no wait time for an individual. They just wouldnt make the cut.
  13. by   Planettelex
    it's a first come first serve bases, sorry if you don’t want to hear that. it has nothing to do with the making the cut. when the amount of applications exceeds a certain number then they create a waiting list so that students don’t have to reapply every semester.

    deadlines: the deadlines listed below are for general admission. certain programs have earlier deadlines which are listed on the program and admissions requirements chart. completed applications will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. please note that if a deadline falls on a weekend, applications and all supporting credentials are accepted through the following monday.
