Think we'll get letters over spring break?

  1. I can't decide if I should cease stalking the mailman this week.

    I think I am going to start stalking the mailman this week I am going bananas waiting for an acceptance letter.

    I should have had my letter last week, so if the mailman values his life, he best only stop at my house if he has that letter in hand!!!

    All joking aside, classes are out this week, but my school's staff still has to come to work, so hopefully YES!

    I know how you guys and gals feel. Does your school start in the fall? Both of the ones I applied for started at the end of August. I got my letter from the ASN program at the JC that I was already attending some time in March last year with a big fat "Sorry you are 72 on the waiting list" (they do not go by merit but lotto) and then I got a letter from the University that had the BSN program saying "Congratulations!" on April 14th (I know because I still have it taped to the wall next to my computer)

    I say, enjoy your spring break. I have already written a presentation on caring for the diabetic client, complete with a colorful poster board since the hospital does not have power point; written a teaching learning paper on a client that I took care of in short stay that was getting a colonoscopy. I still have 21 chapters to read so I am caught up and a little ahead (we get about five chapter to read for each time we meet in class which is twice a week) because I did not get reading done last week and a half because I was studying for a mid-term that was half my grade; and two evolve modules, which stink!

    If you guys get in, your lives will be taken from you too (I am not complaining I know it is worth it) so leave the mail man alone and have a picnic, sit on your butt and watch t.v., read a good book, go to a movie with a friend.

    OMG! Update....just got official word from the school that letters went out today! So, that answers the original question about getting letters over spring break (at least for my school) :spin:

    I'll be in this situation next semester. The waiting must be so hard. Good luck to all and hang in there! I'm sure we will see a celebration thread soon.

    I don't know if anyone remembers reading my story (see the Devastated thread in this forum)...I thought everything was over and done with..final decisions, I heard, for the nursing program were made on March 5...the Dean of the Allied Health at my school called me today, and I was suprised b/c the Dean of the entire nursing program already told me that an exception could not be made on my GPA.

    He called to tell me the same thing, and I told him that I had already been told by other higher ups that an exception could not be made. He made it very clear that he did not agree with the decision in my case.

    The Director of the Entire program sent me an e-mail and said that, "You are a very capable student and we are sure you will be an asset to the nursing program. I feel sure that you will get into the program and do well."

    So, I'm thinking that I've probably got accepted (or they made the exception secretly) and just didn't want to tell me at this time until the letters went out for everyone.

    This is why I'm bummed: The Dean said that he talked to my Director, but I'm thinking, if I got in already, wouldn't the Director have just told him?

    I'm assuming yes...would that be assuming too much?

    I mean, if I get the letter and I'm 1 or 2 on the alternate list, I'm just going to assume that I'm in....they have way more than that, that drop for whatever reason....but if I'm further down than that, then I'm just going to make plans to go out of state to another school and just get my BSN and be done with it...if I have to wait another year, it would be the same amount of time spent, so I mine as well get my BSN instead of my ADN.
