I Did Not Make It In :( - page 3

Hello Good People, I did not make in to LVN school (Hacienda La Puente). The notice said that my scores were high enough for entry into the psych tech program. I don't know if that is what to do or if I want to try for... Read More

    Hi Innocent Namondwe,

    It is done this way (for this program) because the program is highly regarded (at least in Southern CA) and is inexpensive in price. I am going to try for the class that is starting in June 2013 (unless there is any more gliches in the works). I just have to re-think on how I would approach the pre-selection process.

    Thank you for your words of encouragement.

    Awww! I'm so sorry you didn't get it! I think you should try again hun, maybe you weren't prepared for the pre-lvn class, but you will be in June right? You know what you need to do this time! Best of luck!

    Thank you, Dezmijia. I think not only was I not prepared as I should have been, the competition was steep. Admission was based on a points system. So besides the test scores, people got extra points if they could prove they had extra training/work experience(s) in a certain field, licenses, college degree(s).

    Hi
    I don't want to sound like I'm bragging, which is why I didn't mention it, but I was in the same class with you.
    I just want to tell you to hopefully help a little, that I didn't have all that extra experience. I'm a momma, and my current little income comes from making bows I don't have any prior medical experience besides being a candy striper at 13. I'm 34 now. I have some college units, but they are towards child development.
    On the other hand, I was there 45 minutes early waiting outside. I wasn't dressed up, I actually was stressed because I wore jeans and tennis, but that's all I had, I don't have lots of money for suits or anything. I was tidy, did my hair in a ponytail, and wore light make up.

    I did nothing but study for the 2 days prior to the test. And I had several people praying for me! I also feel that I did well on the test because I kept testing myself with each quiz a few times so I could memorize the answers. I know that if you try again in June you will get in! You will be prepared! If there is anything I can help you with, let me know

    Hi! So funny, I also tried getting into the lvn program at hacienda la puente this past june and didnt score high enough in math so I got accepted to pysch tech. So did u end up testing again n getting into the lvn? I actually started the pysch tech class that started in the end of August but I quit in 3 days I found it so overwhelming and didnt think it would be so hard cause I've been out of school for 10 plus years! But I regret it so much now n was thinking to go back the next semester in feb 14'. But I'm afraid I can't handle it cus I'm not smart enough. So just wondering how it went for u and did u end up going the pysch tech route and if its really hard! Any info will help thanks
