    My wife got her acceptance packet on Sat, but it was all wrong. It didn't have all the paperwork and it wasn't for either her 1st or 2nd choice of campus. She wanted either Allegheny or North campus and she was assigned to Boyce. I suppose a 4.0 isn't good enough?

    I don't want to re-post what i've written elsewhere, but it is a giant cluster-F right now. The packets should not have gone out, but they did. Nobody in "admissions" at any campus knows what happened or why.

    My post is #19.

    If anyone else out there has had the same or similar problems, please let me know. My wife and I are both irritated and pretty stressed out about the whole thing. If it can't be solved, she can't go to nursing school this semester and CCAC loses a 4.0 candidate because they have their heads somewhere the sun doesn't shine.

    I know this is frustrating for you, but I don't think anyone was saying your wife wasn't "good enough" for anything. . .she was still accepted to the nursing program, and plenty of people won't be! She's still not finished with her corequisites, either. So she could finish up A&P 2 in the fall and reapply for her campus of choice in spring, make arrangements to get to Boyce in Fall and apply for her campus of choice for Spring (there is only 7am class 1 day per week), or take her chances elsewhere.

    She has options.

    Thank you for the reply! The "good enough" comment was more about there not being anything else she can do to get into the campus of choice, rather than a skill assessment. Disappointing to get a 4.0 and not get either 1st or 2nd choice for campuses. We have no idea now what it would take to get onto 1st or 2nd choice for campuses.

    We're considering those options you mentioned and it really boils down to 2 (unattractive) choices.

    1) Take the Boyce assignment and bite the bullet to take the 80 min round trip commute each day (Allegheny campus is 15 min round trip for her!). Also, pray that none of the clinicals and classes are on Saturdays, because she won't be able to reliably make appointments during Sq Hill Tunnel constructions on weekends/nights.

    2) Finish A&P2 at Allegheny and roll the dice yet again and hope for Allgheny campus. This is less attractive because it delays her again a couple months, which is important for us. Plus there is no guarantee that she will make it to alleg or north campus next time since there is no explanation of placement criteria.

    The frustration really comes from there being no explanation as to their selection criteria and no assistance from Amber Reed (responsible for campus assignments for CCAC nursing). She is not answering her phone or emails today. She also doesn't have an out of office notification active.

    There shouldn't be any Saturday clinical assignments unless she was accepted to the evening/weekend program at Boyce (that's the "fast track" program, which seemed attractive in theory but I didn't want to do evening/weekends either).

    I know its terrible i got rejected from st margarets in the fall ..but you still have options, some people would love to go to Carlow and can't get in! I'll pray for you! You can always start in the spring even though it stinks to take a semester off!! I've heard great things from mercy my friends graduated from there and loved it! It's always good to keep in touch with people that are going through the same thing for support so I hope you do !!!
