    I'm waiting as well. Glad to see you two on here! The counselor that did my point count review said letters are going out March 25th. Do you mean that 300 people passed their PSB as well? If so, wow those are scary competitive numbers!! This is my first year applying to nursing school and we're moving to the area in June. Have you all applied before and do you mind if I ask you what your point total was(mine was 290)? I asked the counselor what the range of points were for last year's students that made it into the program and she said this year they were counting the PSB scores differently so she couldn't tell me whether I was even competitive or not. Anyway, look forward to hearing from you all!

    At least we know that the field was slightly weeded out, even if it leaves more qualified applicants to compete against, I cant wait till this coming up weekend (when the letters should be sent) I've been waiting since october when i applied. This is my first time applying and am scared to death that I wont get in, I also asked the advisor about any hint towards what the numbers looked like and got nowhere. My points I wish were higher, overall I have 331, the spelling on the PSB completely killed my score, barely made the cutoff on it! I wish I had some idea on the applicant "pool". Good luck to everyone applying! Hope to be meeting ya'll at orientation in the summer!

    I'm SO glad that I'm not the only one F R E A K I N G out!!! I'm so impatient with waiting to hear about changes that affect my future!!! I feel like this process has lasted forever. I got a 309, which I'm bummed about. I did good on the PSB, but I really lack the pre-reqs and I would rather do them while in the program than do more school before getting in. All of my appendages are crossed, even my boss asks every time I see her if there is news, she may be more impatient than I am!!
    This is the only school I applied to, so hopefully other applicants will end up accepting other offers leaving more room for people like me!!
    I really wish there was some kind of online update letting us know the news instantly instead of having to wait and being kept in the dark about any changes with the time frame or what the status is. I get nervous every day I drive home wondering if there's a letter waiting, I know, I'm obsessed!

    Good luck to EVERYBODY! I hope there is GREAT news in the mail ASAP!!

    YES, MONTHS! It started for me in July when I applied to CFCC and has lasted this long, I'm surprised I've survived, but I'll be heartbroken if I don't get accepted! I really hope they send them out this weekend, I don't know how much longer I can wait!

    I also got my letter today and didn't get in. I'm pretty bummed about it! I got amazing scores on the PSB, so the classes really hurt me in the end. I guess it was an extra competitive year. We'll see if I try for next year!

    I just got my acceptance letter into the CFCC Fall 2011 ADN program and I just wanted to post my scores for future reference to those wondering an 'approximate' point count total for acceptance.. although next year I'm sure it will be totally different but anywho, I was obsessing and googling similar info myself last fall so here it is...

    My overall point count total was 339. On the PSB, I made:
    Verbal 97
    Arithemtic 80
    Non Verbal 86
    Natural Science 73
    Spelling 69
    Reading Comprehension 98
    Vocational 97

    I also had all of my pre requisites completed with the exception of the higher level English at the time of my application. I had A's in all subjects and had also completed ACA 122 worth 5 points and attended the information session worth 2 points. All in all I received a total score of 78 based on grades. Half of 78 plus half of 600 from PSB = 339. I definitely did not do as great on the PSB as I would have hoped, so I was never certain that I would get in but boy was I excited and relieved to finally get that letter! I went in to speak with the director of nursing to day to get an idea of the weekly schedule and I happened to see my spot on the acceptance list.. I was like number 70 or so!Just barely made it in.. whew! So, most of the other people that got in had better scores! I guess it is just extremely competitive with the lack of jobs everyone is wanting to go into allied health fields.
    I am really sorry to all who did not get in.. maybe you could apply to the LPN program? Apllication period is now and you can transition into the RN program once you complete the LPN. Good luck to all whatever you decide to pursue..
