    as an alternate to the accelerated program I applied to. I am happy I was considered and now will just wait. My plan is to apply to their regular 2 year BSN program and see how it all shakes out. Anyone ever been accepted as an alternate(I'm #5).

    What does it mean to be accepted as an alternate? If someone else bails, you get in?

    Yes, if someone can't go or bails, they call me. So in other words, not really accepted. LOL

    You'd be surprised. In my friends experiences I've watched two of them be wait listed as alternates and both made it in. They were furthur down the list too. A lot of people once accepted either choose a different school, and sometimes financial aid doesn't go through. People drop out for various reasons. Be prepared to accept.

    From what I understand, there are many that cannot accept their seat in a given program each semester. Chances are good that you just might get in after all. Be prepare for a phone call
