Nothing in the mail for me today.
Well, a few pre-approved credit card ads, but that's not what I wanted at all, haha. At least I can TRY to relax and enjoy my weekend and not think about it until Monday morning! The closer finding out seems to get, though, the more anxious and goofy I get. I think I might have a breakdown if I don't find out soon, haha.
I am SO glad to hear about your similar credit transfer woes (not that you have them, of course, but that other applicants also have these issues, which is reassuring that the admissions committee DOES deal with these often and is likely competent at it). I had AP credit from high school that was showing up strangely, a pass/fail course that OU wasn't sure what to do with (I guess they don't do p/f?), and classes that TCC gave me transfer credit for that OU wasn't going to recognize, even though I had since taken classes that required those credits as pre-reqs. This past year has been such a headache of logistics between all my past, current, and future educational institutions! I think you may have me beat coming from a quarter system, though, I'm sure that's a nightmare to get to transfer to semester credit hours! Plus you're coming from "that other
OSU," sure to cause confusion.
Nebraska is actually beginning its first year as a Big Ten school in July.
We just cut and ran from the Big 12 - and I think it was a great move from an academic and athletic standpoint, although that's not a popular opinion to have in the great state of Oklahoma.
Anyway, we ended up in Tulsa by strange mash-up of impulsiveness, youth, enthusiasm, and a healthy dose of poor foresight.
We were accepted to intern at the University of Tulsa with a Christian college student ministry as newlyweds and new college grads with no other career plans at the time - which meant spending all summer trying to raise enough money to serve as a full-time salary + health insurance + expenses for both of us for the year, packing up and moving with 24 hours notice with NO place to live in Tulsa, never having been here, and only having 1 couple here as a connection to help us get "settled." Needless to say, this didn't turn out well. We didn't raise enough funds to both intern, so I ended up interning for a year (which was a disaster in many ways) while my husband took a "regular" job doing whatever he could find on such short notice.
Since then, we've been kind of "stuck" here...when I ended up without a job after that first year, we were in the middle of a year-long lease, and my husband had a job. When my husband got laid off around the time our lease was up, making it seem like an opportune time to move back to Nebraska, I was just beginning my job at the hospital and had a contract to work for them for a year in exchange for training. So it's just never worked out for us to get back to Nebraska and we're still trying to figure out how to make Tulsa "home" since it seems so darned fixated on keeping us here one way or another.
Oh man, life story time over for now. Can't you tell this waiting is getting to me? I obviously have nothing better to do on a Saturday than type this epically long reply.
So, your turn again! How was the transition from NYC to OK? Wow, that sounds intense. Which do you like better? Plan to stay in this area? Where did you do take your additional coursework needed to apply to the ABSN? Any kids (if that's not too personal to answer to an essential stranger online)?
