I live in AZ and the wait for NS is usually about one semester, some people don't even wait that. I applied this summer for Fall, and of course, didn't get in, but I didn't expect to because of the one semester wait most people go through. Well, ever since June when I applied I've been waiting for October 4th, when they do the run for Spring. They go by lottery numbers here, these are automatically generated by a computer, and even though I've worked really hard to keep my GPA up, it makes no difference, it's all in the number the computer gives you. Well I didn't get placed for spring. I"m so disappointed, I've made some plans all based on me starting NS in the spring. My dh has been working 70-80 hours a week so that I can go to school and not have to work, he can't possibly do that for another three years!!! I'm so depressed I feel like just giving up now, it's just not fair.
I have two daughters who are starting school in the fall, this means we'll be paying for three college tuitions for an extra eight months!!
