    That's the way the community college set up their admissions to their nursing program. There are 128 seats and admissions are done once a year. They split the 128 seats into 64 for the Fall cohort and 64 for the Spring. You have no control over which cohort you're assigned to. It's a points-based admissions system, no waiting list. In-district students get an extra 5 points for being residents to prevent out-of-district applicants from bumping out qualified applicants who pay taxes in-district. There are usually 350+ applications for those 128 seats, so it's very competitive.
    Wow I learned something new today. Obviously, I didn't apply to a community college, but thanks for the information. I don't think I could go through that.;/

    I'm also going to be in the waiting boat. Our app deadlines are April 1 and letters don't get sent out until probably the first week of June. I'm only applying to one ASN program, if I don't get it I will try again in the fall for Spring 2014 but really hope I don't have to do that! My GPA is 4.0 and I'm finishing the last of my pre req's currently.

    Waiting waiting waiting! I applied for the Summer 2013 program and should hear back in the next month. I had to take the NLN (98%) and my GPA is currently a 3.75. Hopeful, but I know there are a limited number of seats available. Yikes! I don't know what I'll do if I don't get in. My husband left in May and I am raising 4 kids. I need this more than I need anything so we can not only survive, but thrive as a family!

    Best of luck to you all!!!!

    You would think that raising 6 kids and taking Pathophysiology, while working 20 hours a week would keep my mind off of rejection/acceptance....but it doesn't.

    Are you applying to a Bsn program? I wish I had the time management skills you obviously have to be able to juggle 6 kids and go to nursing school...

    I have a daughter, I work 45+ hours a week, and and I think that is a lot, but u showed me wrong. Im still trying to get this organization thing right especially before I start this program....If I get in that is. I moved out of my paremnt's home in October since it was too stressful being there and doing school, and doing this thing on my own is hard....but at least I am finally able to dedicate my life to just my daughter and I , it was hard living for everybody else....slowly but surely I think I am getting it.

    I'm in the waiting boat too! Ugh, I hate this waiting game. I've applied to 4 different ABSN programs, two instate and two out of state. I don't think I will hear back from any of them until the end of March or even into April :-( Keeping my fingers crossed!!

    Keep the faith and stay upbeat and positive everyone!!! I applied Early Decision to my top choice ABSN program in November, and found out last month that I was accepted :-), but I've been where you guys are and can totally relate to the nervousness and anxiety. Positive thinking yields positive results! Best of luck to everyone!!

    The program I originally applied for last spring, I did not get in to. So I took some time to consider all my options and work full time to ( try ) to save money. The school encouraged me to re apply and keep my application active. So this December I got a letter from them saying I was accepted and can start my clinical January 2014.This may sound like a long time to wait for some, and I can understand that. However this works out perfect for me, as I am taking Micro now, and will take stats and Chem over the summer,and then work full time in the fall to save money. It is funny how things fall into place, at the right time when you work hard. Best of luck to you all!

    Same! I applied to 3 schools. My next deadline is Feb 1st and for my third school, it's march 15th. The stress of getting everything in on time is overwhelming.

    It is also stressful when the school and nursingCAS tell me two different things. NursingCAS told me to resend my transcript, because I had put my Fall grades on it (they may have received my transcript prior to all Fall grades being posted I believe). But my nursing school is saying we are not required to resend a transcript if we put our fall grades on our application (if they were in-progress prior to them receiving the transcript) as long as they have already received one from the institute. I went ahead and sent another transcript last week, but that one may arrive after the deadline even though they already have a transcript from my institution received a while back.

    Does anyone know when your application is considered complete? I have already received an email from the nursing school about them receiving my application and hesi scores. (although the application takes 5 weeks to be verified by nursingCAS)

    This, along with schoolwork, is so stressful. Hope we all do well! Good luck!

    I have been waiting to hear back from 8 different schools. Yesterday morning started out with a high because I heard back from one school inviting me to an interview (2nd degree BSN Program) but then a few hours later got a rejection letter from one of the master's programs. This whole process is emotionally draining because you want to be happy for the other applicants that you've met on the threads, but then you find yourself doubting yourself when you haven't been accepted or invited for interviews yet. Please tell me I am not the only one feeling this way??!! I just really want to know where I am going to end up because the faster I get in, the closer I am of fulfilling my goal to be a Nurse Practitioner!!!

    I definitely have had to streamline everything with 6 kids, job and school. I am applying to an ABSN and all my eggs are in one basket. I keep telling myself that if I don't get in, it's all in God's timing. However, this is easier said than lived at times. Our plan for school is a husband who will become Mr. Mom once I begin. As of next year, my two youngest will begin Kindergarten and my husband is a teacher. This gives him the same schedule as the kids. If I don't get in, I will have to wait for next application cycle and save money.
