    It doesn't, why are you asking? (I'm not sure how I'm supposed to respond.)

    A waiting list means there are already 100-300 or however many people who are qualified and have been accepted to enter the nursing program. Additional applicants have to wait until their number comes up for an available seat to start the program. Some schools just take applicants every year and whoever is not accepted has to reapply the next period. I hope this is what you were asking and this clears it up.

    Gotcha....There are only 110 seats for El Centro & North Lake combined.

    It goes by GPA, so if there are 100 4.0 students applying they would get in. Then it would go by how many 3.77 students have how many support classes done. If the remaining 10 students had all the support classes done, then it would go by the GPA of the support classes.

    I hope this made since. LOL

    You're welcome.

    Gauge14iv is right, there are many trying to get into a few seats.

    So, the wait is on. If we don't get in this semester, we will apply again for fall '06.

    Still don't know. Hopefully the letter will come in today, if not, for sure this next week!
    I just know you will get in. I wish you lot's of success with it. I have decided to get out of nursing. I have been in pre req classes full time for two years making mostly A's and some B's, and lately I am reconsidering my dedication to it. I want to be an Enviromental Scientist and work with the EPA or something equivilant. So keep you your hard work and I wish you alot of luck. I may still ask a Chem question every now and then. I will still read the board from time to time, but I am leaving the nursing school career pathway. Take care.
