I also had my essay last week for Chemeketa, now waiting to find out score. I got waitlisted for OHSU Accel BSN.
Congrats for being waitlisted That is a hard program to get into. I'm really nervous about finding out my essay score. I felt like I wrote a good essay, but it is hard to know what they are looking for.
Yes me too...had my essay last weekend. I think if I don't get in I may go the LPN route first...I'm a medic in the AF, a tech in the ER and a medical assistant. The waiting game to get into a nursing program is crazy!
I am hoping to get into Chemeketa, too. I applied at OHSU, PCC and Clackamas. Didn't have enough points for Clackamas, but took the essay at PCC. I can just about give myself an anxiety attack just by thinking about hearing back from the three schools. Chemeketa is my first choice because of cost and location. I took all my prereq's there.
Just thought I would start a thread to see who else applied to Chemeketa. We should receive our scores in the next few weeks. The suspense is hard. I also applied to OHSU's BSN program.
I applied at both Chemeketa and OHSU'S BSN also. The waiting has been horrible but it seems like now that we're down to the last few weeks it's taking even longer! I'm excited about getting my essay and final score, then we'll have some idea of where we sit.
This is Chemeketa's first year of scoring essay's. Last year they just used the essay as a tie-breaker???? I hated it because I had a perfect score but wasn't offered a position or an alternate number. I really do not know if I bombed the essay last year or not.
