Chemeketa 2009 Applicants
- 0Apr 20, '09 by jenniedenniseHi! I thought I'd start a new thread to see if there are any 2009 Chemeketa applicants on here.
I was an alternate last year and am hoping to be accepted in this year's program.
Just thought we could touch base and "nail bite" together. Haha...

I applied last year and had 310 - and totally had the first 2 tie-breakers - so I was expecting to be in. I heard they had to go to a random selection round and I was in the teens on the alternate list. Talk about a let-down! I assumed that's why they did the essays this year - so they'd have another tie-breaker round that is more subjective than a random selection method.
So, this year, I have 315 - which I'm really thinking HAS to get me in this year!! I'm keeping my fingers crossed though.
Good luck! I hope you get in!!
Which campus did you apply for? I put a preference for McMinnville - I live in Newberg - but now I'm kind of worried about their teaching method with the TV set-up.

- 0May 9, '09 by FizzylouI put Salem, but I can't recall if I said either campus would be fine. I am commuting from Corvallis so I wanted to stay as close to home as possible.
My essay about gave me a heart attack...I stared blankly at the screen for about 5 minutes before remembering what I had to say but I think I managed to pull it out of the fire at the end. I'm not holding my breath about getting in (yeah, right) but I do wish that they would send out their letters around the same time as everyone else. Waiting til the end of June sucks!!!!
- 0May 9, '09 by jenniedenniseI hate the wait also!
There's the other thread on here for Portland schools where most of the people have heard back already.
I'm hoping that once they get the scores finalized on Wednesday, they'll get the letters out soon.
I remember last year they got the letters out way earlier than the estimated date they had given.
