about the waiting list

  1. ok so i am a student at Tennessee State University hoping to be admitted in the associated degree program, right now am lonker2: completing a few of the required courses, and some general courses for my second major.
    i am confused about the whole admission process. what exactly does it mean if you are accepted but on the waiting list.. I mean what are you supposed to do during this time that your waiting to be fully admitted into the program, I was thinking that I could double major and while on a waiting list i could complete some courses for my second major until i begin the nursing program, or is there something else i am supposed to be doing. And how long are waiting list, i tried to search on google and dogpile but the information wasnt clear. Can someone please help me with the answer to this question. Oh... and i need some advise, there are only two accredited programs in the state of tennessee, is two colleges enough chances to get in to nursing school, as anyone can see i am anxiouse for as much advise and information i can get, i am waiting for a reply!!
    thanks,

    Hi Chocolate eyes (interesting moniker)...being on the waiting list, most likely means that you have met all of your prereqs and will be called according to possibly a number method. Does your university also have a BSN program? maybe there are some other courses that you can take to work towards that as well.

    Good luck and I hope you get called soon!

    Ditto what mccnrs2b said!! You never know when you'll be ready for the next hurdle, getting your BSN. Don't not take anything and wait, but take courses that will also count toward your BSN, or a second major that you may like.

    Good luck!!
