Austin Community College ADN Spring 2018

  1. Hello everyone,

    I did not see any other thread for ACC Spring 2018. Figured I would start one where we can all share our acceptance anxieties. I applied last week, I don't think I will get in first time around though very competitive. How do your application stats look?

    Hey there! I sent in my application on Friday 06/23 and thought to my self, "we need a thread!!!" lol. So, it was quit intimidating taking the HESI and seeing so many people !!! I calculated my points to be 39.... my guess at my chances are as good as anyones...

    Hi, 39 is a very good score. I had actually reached out to the nursing office and asked what the cutoff had been for last spring and they said 35. If that's the case you are in pretty good shape. I think I have like 33 or 34 because I got a c on physiology a few years back so I am betting I will be on the waitlist for a while.

    I'm glad someone started a thread! I had been looking for awhile...pretty nervous about September, though I have been told there's a clue of acceptance by getting the petition to take Nursing Skills. I wish everyone luck! I'm not sure how to calculate my score since I have both pre and co requisites done, but if I did calculate right, I'm also at a 39...fingers will be crossed!

I'm also nervous since I have to petition the BON for clearance, figured I better start early.

    UGH!! I wonder why they extended the deadline so far our??? Did any of you guys happen to receive the petition for skills?

    They did this last year too, its because they haven't received a lot of applications from what I was told last year. The number of applicants have been decreasing so they've been forced to extended the deadline in hopes some people can finish their pre application stuff. The application status page will be updated when they send out petitions again, which normally is at 5pm. Last I checked (normally everyday, I know I'm pretty anxious ) the last update was June. Keep figures crossed!

    So I happened to be looking at the Application Status page and saw that Fall petition emails will be sent tomorrow (July 21), so be sure to check your emails!!!
    Good luck!

    Well, the emails won't get sent til like 5pm, but I know I'll receive one. I tried registering for one of the classes and it went though...so try that!! Super excited!!

    Awesome, congratulations... is this your first time applying?

    Just received the petition email, came earlier than I thought it would.

    Yes, Spring '18 is the first time I've applied. I'm hopeful, I've got the pre and co's done and from what I've been told, it really ups your place for acceptance. Is this your first time applying too?
