    I'm near Corvallis and I didn't get a letter either.

    Sartorius1-have you applied at other schools besides Linfield? I'm debating doing a bridge program but I'm worried about the lack of clinical time. Do you work in health care now?

    This is my first time applying anywhere. I'm actually finishing my pre-reqs this term (A&P 233 and Bio 207). I think in December I'm going to apply to PCC and MHCC. Probably not Linfield because they are only accepting spots for the waitlist, and I'd like to save some money because I'm going abroad in January. Linfield is my #1, but at this point I just want to get in.
    I've worked in a hospital for four years! Unfortunately I'm not a CNA so I only get like 2 points for my OCNE apps

    Have you looked at UP?

    It's my first time applying too. I'm looking into CCs now, but am feeling pretty discouraged. I really don't want to have to re-take classes I got a B in, but it looks like I might have to in order to be competitive.

    What do you do at the hospital? I'm a respiratory therapist, but I don't get any extra points for that other than having a degree.

    oopsy! Duplicated post.

    Shouldn't you get more points at the CC's if you work as an RT? I think you can max out at 6 points if you have over 400 hours. I know that's the case for CNA's and EMT's. I would be shocked if RT didn't qualify!
    I'm a diet aide. So basically a glorified waitress I've been debating getting my CNA or EMT basic just to get more points..but it seems like such an expensive way to go about it. Then again, I'll end up shelling out $800 or so to retake my B's.
    I definitely feel trapped and like I'm going nowhere. Just gotta keep chugging along, I guess

    Thank you, Sartorius. That is such a bummer! I am so sorry. You have such a good attitude, and I know your persistence will pay off. I will most definitely come back and let you know how it's going. Good luck to you!

    It's okay, I know what I have to do for next time. And today I need to finish this chapter on the respiratory system!
