    Congrats! Do you have to fax/take/send in proof of your CPR certification before the 15th?

    Did you ask what campus was her first choice? I'm trying to prepare myself for the fact that IF I am accepted, I'll probably end up at ECC. There could quite possibly be 40 applicants with 4.0's wanting NLC! ugggh
    I applied last year and the lowest support courses GPA to get accepted into NLC was a 2.64 and the lowest into ECC was a 2.97. So it's not necessarily all of the 4.0 ones who get into NLC, at least last year it wasn't. I just don't want you to get your hopes down!!!!

    Get your hopes down...lol Thanks for the word of encouragement!

    What semester are you talking about? I know for this class now (Fall '05), it was 11 credits completed. How many credits were there completed for the support classes for the GPAs you gave? I have a 3.82 on all 17 credits for my support classes. Wow, this could be a good sign, if it hasn't changed too much!

    I've gone to NLC, with only a few exceptions, since I graduated high school in 1991! I sure would like to stay there.


    EDITED TO ADD: I have A's on all of my support classes, except 1 B on a 3 credit class. I hope I figured the 3.82 correctly...I'm going to figure it again. lol

    Just wondering what school you are going to try to attend? I am so glad there is someone else out there that's in the same situation I am in. Are you going to NL or do you want to attend Brookhaven? I would be so glad to have a study buddy. I think I am going to take Math in the spring. What about you?
    I am planning on BH. I am re-taking English and Psyc now. My BS is in Psyc, but I didn't get an A. I am just planning on muddling along and seeing what happens. I may try a Science in the spring, to see if I can get an A!!

    I applied for the Spring of '05 and that is what was stated in the rejection letter. Yes, that was with 11 hours completed. I know it changes each semester but your GPA is awesome. If you have at least 3.77 in the pre-reqs then you're bound to get in!!! I got a B in anatomy which weighed heavier than the other courses so it brought my pre-req GPA to a 3.69 and the lowest they accepted was a 3.77. The best part was when they stated my 4.0 with 13 hours support courses did not beat out 11 hours completed with a 2.64. I guess if you can cheat your way through those 4 pre-reqs then that's all that matters! I sure don't want that person as my nurse!!! hahaha

    ONLY 11 MORE DAYS!!! WOW!!!!! I hope they don't take forever to get here. Last year I got it on Oct 16th but that's on a Sunday this year so I hope they send them out on Friday the 14th. This wait is killing me!!! I can't think about anything else!!!! I know you know how I feel!!

    Oh yeah I re-took it and got an A. It was so much easier the second time around! I wish I would have paid more attention the first time and there probably wouldn't have been a problem! Oh well...shoulda...woulda...coulda..right? )

    Been there, done that! If I had the motivation back in '91 as I do now, I would be a FNP by now! lol That's ok, at least NLC/ECC encourages repeats! I'd be in trouble too, if that was the case.

    I'm glad you retook it! I couldn't remember if you had stated that anywhere. (Ever wonder if you'll be a good nurse when you realize your memory really bites? I'll definitely be the one constantly writing reminder notes down. LOL)

    I can't believe it's so close!!!!!

    Fun2Care I think you have a GREAT chance of getting in!

    I hope I have the same luck. 3.77 Pre reqs and 13/17 support courses with a 3.77 on those.

    Thanks! I think you have a great chance also! I can't wait for us all to find out!

    I know if I don't get accepted this time, I will take a one or two more classes toward my BSN, and/or take pharmacology.

    That doesn't make sense. How can you be determined (hopefully that's what it was) enough to make a 4.0 on your pre-reqs & make a 2.64 on your support classes??????

    I would retake Algebra if I have to, and I'm going to take Music Appreciation starting October 21st, just in case. If I don't need it to replace my B in American Lit to have a 4.0 (hopefully) on my 17 credits of support classes, then it will go towards my humanities credit for my future RN-BSN.

    Fun2Care,

    I was wondering, if we don't make it for Spring of 06 (I don't really like thinking about this, but....) would you reapply or finish all your core courses and work straight for your BSN? You are close to completing them, whereas I am just getting started. I am contemplating what I should do if faced with this awful choice.

    All I lack on the support courses for the ADN is Micro (taking now), so I have 13 hours completed out of 17. I hate to be rejected because I only have 13 support hours. That would mean I have to wait 6 months for 1 course to gain the advantage. It would feel like such a waste of time. I don't know if I should just finish up with my core work towards a BSN and attempt to find an entry level position with a hosipital in the hopes of tuition reimbursement? I will have to quit my full-time job once I begin a nursing program and maybe find part-time work that won't interfere with school.

    I have been reading your posts and you have such good advice, what do you think?
