    Lol, me too! I do feel bad for those people, but it makes our chances that much better I do wonder too if they will get a "second chance" because so many had an issue.Ya, the TEAS...ehh. It's basically a test that assess your knowledge on everything you've learned in your prereq's and, I think, there maybe some critical thinking in there. I only need it if I apply to my CC, which I don't even really want to do. It's super competitive, takes the same amount of time as Linfield, AND you only end up with an AA! BUT, I'll do what I have to. I actually just started school in 2010 because I wanted to wait till my kids were old enough so I could focus better. I really need to get this done! Hurry up and wait, so right I was taking between 12-16 credits every term (including summer) to get through fast, along with waiting tables, and raising 5 kids. And now I must sit and wait to see how my near future is going to pan out. Hurry up...wait

    I know! I keep reading about people who had a 4.0 and still couldn't get in, mine is at a cumm. 3.85 right now. I did get all A's in my sciences except for bio 101 and I gotta A-so my gpa is like 3.95. I must stop obsessing tho, it is what it is and it's outta my hands now, right?Anyway, I do find it funny no one else has commented on here...Oh, I live in Bend. Do you live in portland?

    You've got the grades to make it in! One of the things I like most about Linfield is that they assess applicants a little more thoroughly than OHSU and PCC. I love Linfield's well-rounded approach.. I don't think having a 4.0 means someone will be a great nurse, and thankfully Linfield realizes that! I guess I say this because I have three B's in my pre-reqs.

    I do live in Portland! What's your plan if you get in? (Which I really think you will!) I was looking at their student housing actually. I currently live with my boyfriend and I think if I was going to succeed in nursing school I'd have to surround myself 24/7 with other dedicated students. That's the only way I aced A&P 231 and 232. I saw my study group more than my BF it seems like! Ha.

    Oh I like your positive attitude I agree with your thoughts about Linfield. That's why it truly is my top choice. I also agree with the "surrounding yourself with other dedicated students". My original plan was to move my whole family up but my husbands' job fell through out there. We have decided I would live there on campus and I would go home on the weekends. It was a very hard choice because I've never been away from my children (not even ever put them in daycare) but what my husband and I talked about is that I prob wouldn't see much of them anyway, and like you said, I can completely focus on school during the week. I feel really good about now, and my mother-in-law said she'd come and stay while I was gone so they can get their daily dose of maternal energy. Are you thinking of living on campus too?

    Hello, I also applied to Linfield for the Spring 13' entry, so maybe it's just the three of us? Haha! If only it worked that way. October seems so far away doesn't it?

    Best of luck to both of you!! I'm sure you'll both get in!

    Aw, gkash that's so sweet! I'm sure time will fly by. Plus they will all be proud of you for sacrificing so much, I'm sure!
    I'm considering living on campus. The cost doesn't seem too steep compared to what I'm paying currently, plus I'd never be late to class!

    Hi 2lively! Good luck to you, as well. Is this your first time applying?
  11. by   way2lively
    Yes, first time applying. It's a long shot for me, but I wanted to go through the process.
