    hey guys, I too, am aware of the points system. whenever I met with a counselor at the north campus of CPCC, the woman at the time did tell me it would be a year to get in if I applied now. I'm not sure if there were special circumstances regarding my situation or what... so sorry about that.

    As far as why I have decided to go to cmc or rather CCHS, it's basically because I am planning on entering the pre-nursing program and as long as you complete the 4 core courses with the required passing GPA, then you are gauranteed a seat in the nursing program. This is very appealing to me, seeing as how in highschool I had very mediocre grades (so getting into the nursing program would be very difficult for me!).

    Anyways, CP, CCHS, & Pres. are all highly regarded for their nursing programs and many have said they prepare you for exams fully. I also know that it should be very easy securing a job. So good luck in whatever you do!

    I marked CPCC off my list because a rep there told me that it was impossible to get in unless you did 20 hours of volunteer work per week (ridiculous!) and have that on your application for admission, and I also heard that they had a very low pass rate on state boards.

    i've come to find out that so called advisors are full of crap. they give you misinformation and omit quite a bit. the volunteer work thing is not true. i've never volunteered a day in my life and got in first try.

    the pass rates for all the local schools:

    i don't think that their record is all that bad, especially considering how much it costs compared to the other programs. and they have a new director over the program this year.
