CCAC Spring 2013 hopefuls! - page 20

Just wanted to start a thread for those who applied to CCAC for this upcoming Spring semester. What were your stats when you applied? What campus did you select? What are your nursing goals? I applied with a 3.8 GPA with Micro... Read More

    I understand your bitterness, but I do have all my pre-reqs done. It's the co-reqs I'm working on. How would it be fair that I busted my butt getting all A's to get turned down because a C student completed all the co-reqs. That's why they do give bonus points to your GPA to help you get into the program for taking classes you did t have to yet. Unfortunately, someone who didn't compete all co-reqs still had a higher GPA than you with your bonus points. It happens. I'm sorry you didn't get in, but it's over 700 applicants fighting for less than 300 seats.
    Just so you know... I understand both sides. Just because you have a lower GPA doesn't mean you are a C student. Mine is low because I've only had 3 classes at CCAC (will be 5 after this semester). I bust my butt and got an A, B (just missed an A) and one C. That one C is what pulled my GPA down. All the other classes transfered in from my previous degree and they were all A's. However it's CCAC's GPA that counts.

    Hi everyone. i applied with a GPA of 3.67 and A&P 1, microbiology completed with As and currently taking A&P 2 and i was denied, because people who placed before me got all the sits. I thought it was based on grades not on who sent their applications first. frustrated :/

    To answer an earlier question ... I have a 4.0 with A&P 1 and 2 complete (which would give me a 5.75 out of 6.25 based on CCAC's points program). I'm currently taking Micro and Algebra 108. I got accepted into the Allegheny evening program, and only have English 102 left to complete after this semester. I turned in my application on the last day, so that doesn't have anything to do with acceptance. I hope that anyone who got a denial letter either appeals or applies for fall! Good luck to you all.

    Did anyone else get a uniform price list in their packet? I read that it was supposed to be enclosed, but all I received was an important date overview and a packet with all of the forms that we need.

    Nope. And on the first page it says orientation is on the 8th, but on the 2nd page it says the 10th. I wonder which it is?
