I posted previously that I got on my school's alternate list, and today I got the letter telling me how far down I am. I'm #15. This is a small area, and they accepted 50 students. I about fell out of my chair!
Forgive me for reposting this situation....I was the one where they used my high school GPA instead of my high overal college GPA and that caused me to get an extremely low score for admission purposes into the RN program. The reason this happened was b/c I didn't finish my AAS degree last Fall, and I could have had my advisor told me my high school GPA would have been used.
I called the Dean...again (who had previously referred me to the program Director who said an exception could not be made), and where I told him where I was on the list, he again, said he disagreed with the decision of the nursing department.
After I grew some balls and asked him, "Who is the end-all chain of command in getting an exception?"
He got really quiet and said, "Put the entire situation in writing...I don't care how long it is...tell me everything that happened".
I really, REALLY don't want to get off on the wrong foot with the nursing department...but the potential for keeping my mouth shut is waiting an entire year and applying again, and I just don't want to do that if there is a 1% chance I can either move up on the alternate list or get accepted.
I made it very, very clear to the Dean that I am not seeking to get anyone in trouble...my advisor just made an honest mistake...but I also told him I shouldn't suffer for it.
