LBCC & Cypress Spring 2014

  1. 0
    Hi everyone!
    I thought I would start the a post for anyone who has just applied to LBCC this past august 2013, and Cypress this September 2013 for admission to Spring 2014 programs! Letters of acceptance should hopefully be sent out for LBCC end of sept, beginning of October. Has anyone received theirs yet or know other dates??

    I'm not sure, although I think it's really low :/ How about you? But yeah, December seems so far away. Did you apply to other schools?

    How do you count the points on the last page, regarding the "Additional Criteria"?
    I have work and volunteer hours, wrote a personal statement for proficiency in Spanish, and need to work. Do student success courses count for points? Cause I do have some of those. In any case, I have at least 19 points (got all Bs in science pre-reqs :/). I know that's not super competitive.

    You can get a maximum of 5 points for additional criteria. So if you have 200 hours of volunteer work then that's 1 point, if you have special circumstances like need to work, you get 1 point for each that applies to you. You also get 1 point per course taken that is considered student success coursework. So even though you may have volunteer, second language, or a million other classes you've taken, they still only give you a maximum of 5 points. So it sounds like you will have 19+5= 24/30 points. If you apply to cerritos in March, it's lottery system so they don't look at points it's all based on luck!

    Yes I applied to lbcc and ill also apply to CSULB, gwc, and cerritos. Lbcc has another application in March you should apply to. Make sure you attend info session because it is a requirement for lbcc (and most nursing programs) in order to even apply

    Ahh, that's what I figured. Thanks for the clarification.

    I also applied to Santa Ana, Saddleback, PCC, Rio Hondo, and Palomar. Here's hoping! If anything, I will definitely try Cerritos or LBCC. Thanks
