Applicants to Portland area schools 2011

    How's everyone doing with their Apps?

    I applied to MHCC, CCC, PCC and Linfield.

    It's my first year applying and I'm a nervous wreck!!!

    How long does it usually take to hear whether or not you got an interview?
    I was glad to see CCC changed their deadline to Feb 15th like the other OCNE schools-I think it'll make the waiting more bearable!

    Anyone else want to share points to see how tight the competition is this year?

    Other than Mt. Hood, I don't get too many discretionary points.

    Heres what I *think* I have (figuring them myself):
    MHCC-63 points
    CCC-50 or 51 points depending on how they round up your gpa
    PCC-54 points

    Good luck everyone!!!
    Let the nail biting, stalking the mailbox begin!

    PCC 59.8
    CCC 54.8 + 3 discretionary points if it comes to that.

    I'm not sure of my chances at CCC. I think I have better odds at PCC. I was told by one of the application reviewers at PCC that the average student for 2010 had 60pts, a four-year degree, and a 3.9GPA. I thought I read somewhere on this board that the cutoff for points at CCC last year was 55. By cutoff I mean for those that got interviews. I'm sure I'll be corrected by someone if I'm wrong.

    I wouldn't expect to hear any definitive answers regarding acceptance until mid to late May. Might as well give your fingernails a chance to grow. I'm already working on plan B if I don't get accepted; that being something in the computer engineering field. I'm not going to reapply year after year as I've read in so many posts here. If a 3.9GPA, multiple college degrees, and CNA isn't good enough this year, I have no reason to believe it will somehow miraculously be good enough next year.

    I was just on CCC's nursing website and thought I read that their application period is Feb 7-11. Am I wrong?

    Also, the CCC score sheet I found says you can get up to 50 points for an essay.... but this isn't part of the tie-breaker? I can't find any more info on the essay. Does anyone have insight?

    This is my second year applying and I am trying for CCC and OHSU's Monmouth campus.

    I have pretty much all the points needed for CCC and OHSU doesn't really have a definite point system. I have decided that if I don't get in this year, I'm going to take the classes I need to apply to Linfield. I know three people who have gotten into their program and I don't want to offend anyone by saying this, but it seems like it's easier to get in there.

    Kamaboko - where did you get your CNA license? It seems like there are limited way to get it and that's something I am really interested in doing.

    Nevermind about the essay question - I did more poking around found this:

    Essay Exams:
    Applicants will be assigned a date (included in the complete packet letters from Enrollment Services) on April 9 or April 16, 2011 to complete the essay exam. Do save these dates!

    Cool!

    I'm pretty sure the essay exam is part of the second round of cuts. I mean, not everyone gets to write an essay. The essay is only for those who have made it through the first of points.

    How did you calculate your MHCC score? I can't for the life of me, figure it out! Thanks so much! And I know what you mean by the nail biting and mailbox stalking! :-)

    Katieus, on MHCC's nursing page, where you download the application there's also an 'application resource guide' that gives the point breakdown.

    Oh, I think I've seen that already. I'm looking for the breakdown of the GPA score specifically. They say "40 points" for the GPA portion, but I wonder how these particular points are added up. Sorry, I should have been more clear. Thanks so much for your reply!
