    I'm applying for San Diego and dropped off my transcripts at their office at Sharp Cabrillo. I think I'm leaning towards applying for summer...I'll be glad if they take me for either one! Does anyone know the average GPA for the San Diego program?

    I was asked to apply for summer with 3 classes in progress. However, I am not ....my baby is still too young so I am going to apply for Fall. I was told that summers are slower ....not too many applicants..thats not to say they dont have enough people applying but maybe they want to have extra etc

    Hi Merced0301,
    In regards to your housing search, I would like to recommend that you find something in central San Diego. Your hospital clinicals will range in location from Kearny Mesa, Chula Vista, Coronado and La Mesa. The school at Sharp Cabrillo will also be moving in April, rumors say to the Kearny Mesa area. Each clinical will be a different location each semester and you don't really have a choice as to your location. Besides, each hospital will offer its own unique experience.

    I have used backpage.com in the past to search for housing and roommates. Good luck in your housing search and good luck for the fall. :spin:

    marimoe - thank you soo much, i will look into apartments near or around Kearny Mesa. I heard nothing ranges below $500 which is expected. are you already in the program, any type of insight would be greatly appreciated.

    also I was told I could have 2 courses in progress but in order to apply for summer BUT i would have to finish my final before June 8 and my finals are on that week and I wont have my grades in until 2-3 weeks after that so I decided to apply for Fall although they've been emailing me telling me that they all receive the greatest number of applications during the fall, I'm still hopeful about the whole thing.

    I got the same info as well.....saying they have the highest number of applicants for the Fall. I wonder if this is accurate info????? I am sure they have more applicants than seats available for summer as well.

    I called the San Diego office today to ask about how many people have applied. They told me they wouldn't know the number until the deadline has passed but it is less than 100. I have been trying to decide if i want to apply for Fall instead and they just said it's up to me and that either way it is a competitive applicant pool. I FREAKED when I read the email about the fall being the most applications and that i should appyl today for summer. I asked the counselor and she said they have had applications ranging from 90-160 per term in the past, she said that they had 160 the last fall application. so that means only half got in....it's a tough decision, and i still haven't made up my mind....summer is looking more appealing...

    Hi Merced 0301,
    Yes, I'm in my first semester right now. Good luck again on that housing search. As far as my thoughts on the program...it's quite hectic the first three weeks. Then your schedule is more regular and you don't have to be on campus as much. I too would also have debated between applying in the summer or fall. One person posted that starting in the summer will give you the advantage of having the longer semesters(fall and spring) to do the 2nd and 3rd semesters which are the hardest. Then again I remember thinking how I was glad to not start off in the summer because it was quite of an adjustment in the beginning like I said. I will have second semester in the summer and I am personally dreading that (especially Pharmacology), but I think that it all just boils down to time management and being organized from the start. Also I feel it helps if you don't work. I quit my job before the semester started and I am glad I did. Other people that I know work are either starting to quit or really cut back. My clinical instructor has advised us to not work anymore because the program is going to get harder.

    I will try to check in here when I can and offer my experiences. Good luck to you and everyone applying for Summer and Fall.

    i am a first semester student right now. i think you have made a good choice. the first semester, they say, is the easiest and taking it in the shorter semester, summer, will probably help you long term. this way, youwon't have any of the difficult semesters - 2 and 3- in a summer session.
    good luck to you. i hope you get in!

    Hi all, I'm also applying for Summer 09. I just finished my application a few days ago, and am now anxiously crossing my fingers and hoping that I get in. I am really hoping that I have better chances due to the summer start date! Does anyone know when we will be notified of acceptance or denial?

    Thanks!

    Hi, I'm applying for Summer 09 too. They said decisions will go out 8 weeks after the deadline.. which is a long time from now! I'm applying to Glendale. Which school did you guys apply to?
  13. by   Amanda_SD
    Thanks deevee, even though it is a long time, it helps to know that our wait will be over in 8 weeks. I'm applying for the San Diego location. I was tempted to apply to the Glendale location to get an extra chance to get in, but my husband has a great job here, so that wouldn't have worked out. Good luck to you and I hope you are accepted!
