    Well then I guess I just have to keep my fingers crossed! I was told I would have been in tier 1, but I had one rough patch that had caused a few of my grades to slip and even though I recovered tremendously since then (it was years ago) that is the only thing bumping me out of tier 1. I was a little bummed about it at first but got over it quickly,at this point I just want to get in! Things happen for a reason and my lowest grade since then has been a B, so I'll take it as a lesson learned in dealing with life.

    Your checklist has a tier listed? The school didn't list tiers for my applicant pool. I basically had the same situation as you with my grades. Julie called me and told me to write a letter of addendum explaining my situation. And like you I didn't anything less than a B since my mishap.

    Hi everyone! I just logged into my application checklist and it doesnt say anything about a status, such as RAP review. Is this okay and is that where it would say such a thing? Also is anyone else taking a required class right now? I am currently taking Chemistry so my checklist obviously says 'No' for that grade but Julie still told me to look out for a letter in April.
    And one more question! Can we get the ball rolling on any of the things we will need such as doctors appointments and such right now?
    Thank you!

    @Amber did you submit all of your application information? If not you won't go into rap review until the deadline March 1st. As for getting a head start on the requirements you basically have to wait for your acceptance packet. The only thing I can suggest is start the process ASAP, b/c I had a heck of a time getting appts around my work schedule. Also, maybe take the CPR for healthcare providers. The hospital offers classes, but I took the course at Jefferson.

    @ Awarren No, the tier wasn't on my applicant status, I was told that when I went up to the school. I had to do the same thing you did and also had to write an addendum explaining my circumstances. But I knew that from orientation because I asked Julie then, so I turned it in when I turned in my application.

    @ Amber, I currently enrolled in A&PII, but I find it's much easier than A&P I so that's a big relief for me! Did you have your interview already? If so how'd it go?!

    @simplyblessed, I was not able to make an interview because I could not get in contact with Julie. But she called me the other day and I feel like we basically had an interview over the phone. She needed me to send in updated transcripts and re-send my essay. But the call went really good, she assured me that everything looked great so that makes me feel a whole lot better!

    Does anyone know how to go about getting CPR certified (somewhere that the school approves)? And does it cost anything?

    For the BCLS/BLS CPR certification...You can go anywhere that follows the American Health Asssociation guidelines. I took the course at Jefferson (Jeffstat) I think it was $75. The school offers the oppurtunity to take the class at the hospital. (I'll look for my packet to see how much the school charged.) Or you can try Redcross, they were a bit more expensive than Jefferson. Just make sure you take CPR BCLS for Healthcare Providers.

    @ Amber, well I'm glad you got to talk to her! The main thing is she has an idea about you, doesn't matter if it's over the phone or in person. She did say they received a little over 400 applications, so whatever little extra we do can only help.

    @ Awarren, I logged in this afternoon. Maybe it was down for a bit earlier, but it seems they fixed the issue.

    Question for those in the Aria nursing program: Is the hospital hiring their nursing grads? If not, have there been any issues with Aria grads getting hired by other hospitals? The reason I ask is that grads from the ADN programs in the Phila area seem to be having a terrible time getting hired and I wondered if it was the same for diploma RN's.
