    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!

    I didn't get in either Sartorius1 so you are not alone. I already knew I wasn't going to get in this application cycle so it wasn't a big surprise. The advisor at Linfield told me I was on track for next Summer, BUT I don't have a bachelors degree so I can't even apply.

    Hang in there. You WILL get in!!

    Oh....the respiratory system! Now we are taking.....that is my specialty

    Aww, it still kinda stings, though! Wait, why can't you apply next summer? I don't have my Bachelors yet either..
    I'm trying to decide if I should finish it and apply again, or just retake my "B" classes.

    On FB it says "If you have a bachelor's degree and plan to apply for Summer 2013, all 56 available positions will be filled by our applicants." And if you read the thread on that post it says "The summer start (accelerated program for people with bachelors) will still be filled by new applicants this next application cycle. (56 seats)"

    Did I mis-interpret this? I read it as if you have bachelors degree then you can apply.

    It kind of confusing, but I understand it as if you have a Bachelors, you can START in summer (June 1). The "56 seats filled by our applicants" means that they accept the students with Bachelors by application ONLY. Whereas with the fall cycle, it is already filled with transfer students from the McMinnville campus.

    Does that make sense? I think Linfield has two application cycles: June-July for a start in Febuary, November-February for a start in June (if you have a Bachelors) or a start in August (if you do not.)

    It's kind of confusing to type, but I think you're okay. All I know is, is that I will not be applying this fall because I do not want to waste money on *maybe* getting on a waiting list. I plan to apply again in June to hopefully start February 2014.

    Ah....ok. That makes more sense. I will most likely apply again if I don't do an RT-RN bridge. A year seems so far away.
