I have been attending Columbus State for a year and a half working on all of my non-nursing curriculum. This past January I applied for the RN program. I was very nervous that I would not submit my application quick enough because it is more or less based on first come first serve. So at 9:00 am I got through to the website, tried to submit my application, and then I experienced some problems. Needless to say, the computer system was screwed up and did not accurately sort through my previous class requirement information.
Awhile back when I had tested for math, I was placed into the Math-107 (condensed algebra 1- 102 & 103 combined) class and eventually went on to Math-110 (condensed algebra 2- 103 & 104 combined) and completed each. Well Math-107 and 110 was not even listed as a requirement on the website, instead it was Math-101 through 104. I could not believe it, so I refreshed the page, went back to the home page, and signed on again hoping that it was just an error. When I realized it was not, I clicked on a button that brought me to a page that said I could contest it. At this time my friend had already texted me asking what number I had gotten and letting me know hers was 96. I was so angry!
By the time I actually submitted the form, I believe it was either 9:03 am or 9:04 am, plus I did not even receive a confirmation number. After this, I grabbed my stuff and sprinted up into the nursing department looking for some answers.
The lady said that I would be receiving a call from Kathy Eichenberger within the next week. I checked my email at almost 3:00 pm that day and Kathy had sent me a message that said,
"The Nursing Department has reviewed the information on your dispute form. We have found the appropriate documentation. You will be added to the applicant pool with your original time stamp."
I emailed her back asking for a confirmation number and she sent back,
"I do not believe you will receive a number at this point. It is only confirming that you submitted an application and we know that you did."
After receiving this, I felt very unsure about what was going to happen. I am still very nervous and I believe that I will not make it in, just because of a computer glitch. Not Fair!
I am writing on this website in hopes that maybe one of you have gone through an experience like this, or can tell me what I can do. I feel that if I do not get accepted, then I am going to make a complaint to the Columbus State dean and/or possibly seek legal action. I do not believe I received a fair chance like everyone else who applied.
I also was wondering if anyone knew the date that they received their acceptance letters in the mail? I know that it is in May.
Thank you in advance! :spin:
