    I know how you feel thomjm I am done with all my pre and co reqs except for english 102. I already applied to St Margarets and didn't get in they said because of my previous academics. I didn't do well when I first started college because I didn't have any goals or direction. I retook the classes I didn't do well in and got A's. I explained that to them in the letter but it didn't matter. I have more classes done now so I am hoping that I will get into CCAC.

    I called north campus nursing department, and they said most people would get them june/july. And maybe people with like 4.0 will maybe get them in may.

    One of the nursing teachers At Allegheny campus told me the letters might come at the end of this month. Typical CCAC though you get 50 million stories from every person you ask... she told me that they had over 900 applications and 350 spots. I would not discount the hospital programs expecially with the tuition forgiveness programs that they have

    Thanks for the update. If I don't get in then I will just keep applying until I do! I think I will try more than just one school next time, that is if I don't get in. They have more spots than I thought they would have though!

    The hospital-based programs (at least Shadyside; i'm sure the other UPMC programs will follow) don't have 100% tuition forgiveness. I'm maxed out on undergrad loans so I basically HAVE to go to a community college program I can pay cash for or apply to a Graduate-entry program.

    I think shadyside told me it would be 5500 a year after tuition forgiveness, and I qualify for the full pell grant so it would have been free, so still pretty reasonable but ccac is cheaper if your paying cash

    I can't get a Pell Grant because I already have a Bachelors (and Masters). I don't know anyone who went to Shadyside who didn't have to take out some loans, though (I went there for a semester and withdrew. . .um. . .I wouldn't trust anything the financial aid office there tells you. They actually OVERMAXED me out on my undergrad loans. It was a huge mess that I had to clean up).

    I saw that St. Margaret's makes you pay for your first year, then they pay your second with the tuition forgiveness. Either way, neither situation works for me.

    West Penn appears to be ungodly expensive. . .I haven't heard anything about a tuition forgiveness program through them but I suppose it could exist?
