    Well I didn't get into the MHCC program. I had 60 points prior to the essay / interview, and there were 104 people out of 150 that finished ahead of me. Sounds like I bombed the essay / interview. Sucks cuz I thought it went well. Perhaps I need to re-think my interview strategy. Oh well, 3 more letters to obsess over this month.

    I didn't get into MHCC either! Damn, cause I also thought my essay / interview went good for me. Well, I have a few more shots here (PCC, CCC, and Clark). Congratulations to Lilpoka and Emmers! Good luck to the rest!

    Congratulations!!! Are you going to hold out for a different school or was MHCC your top choice?

    Congratulations to those who got into the MHCC program!

    Also, sorry to hear from those who didn't get in. From the sounds of it, it doesn't seem like those who were declined spots in the class made errors in their essays or interviews (from your impression). Instead, it sounds like the competition was just that good. There must have been one or two particular details that simply stood out for those who got selected. I'm still in awe that there is this much competition for the RN program.

    Hopefully everyone ultimately gets into their classes as more schools make announcements and alternates move up. It sure would be nice if they would make their determinations within the same week or month. It is what it is, though.

    Still waiting for the OHSU OCNE announcements...

    Cheers all

    PCC applicants, when do you hear back about acceptance/alternate positions? Are all interviews done then?

    PCC does a proctored essay and no interviews. I remember them saying it will be the week of the 14th. I am also waiting to hear from the OHSU BSN program which will be that week as well. I'm going completely crazy though.

    Interviews for the Clackamas are May 17th, 18th and the 24th, with notifications by June 1st.

    Thanks Miss-

    I'm pretty excited and am very pleased with the Mt Hood invite! I am still waiting on PCC, but pretty sure I will decline if an offer comes in. Still have CCC interview in a couple of weeks. I think it is always good to have options. But Mt Hood is wonderful!

    Can't wait to hear from others!

    That's so funny. I never even thought of dressing up! I wore jeans, nice shirt/jacket like I always do when I go out on the weekend to do errands. May not have scored me any points but was very comfortable in the room.

    I wasn't aware CCC did interviews? I believe it's pretty much based on scores and essay. I have a feeling instructors are on or give input to the committee.
