Applicants to Portland area schools 2011
- 0Jan 25, '11 by Ginnym1981How'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):
CCC-50 or 51 points depending on how they round up your gpa
Good luck everyone!!!
Let the nail biting, stalking the mailbox begin!
- 0PCC 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.Last edit by kamaboko on Jan 25, '11
- 0I 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.
- 0Jan 25, '11 by gardensttI 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.
- 0Quote from gardensttI'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.Nevermind about the essay question - I did more poking around found this:
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!
