    I completely understand your frustrations. What's done is done, and you have already taken all those prereqs at CCRI....whatever! No big deal, it's just moving on from here. I think you'll have good luck in the program, you seem very motivated and bright!

    On the other hand, you need to understand that the nursing committee has SO many applicants that bringing in students for interviews would literally take months. I agree that GPA is not a sole reason to accept a student. It is actually silly.....people cheat and lie all the time to get good grades. But, hey..it will bite them in the butt later.

    It's tough for second degree students. They are some of the last students picked because, well, there are so many of us with no degree! :chuckle I'm 23 and I've been working on my first degree since I was 18 (did business for 1 year and hated it....then taking prereqs....then the long wait to get into nursing) and have worked so hard to get where I am at right now. This is not to say you haven't worked hard too....I know we all have! No one person deserves a spot more than anyone else. It's all in the hands of the college.

    Yes, the committee does see on your application whether you have applied before or not, whether you have another degree, and what your grades are. They look at the application as a whole before making a decision.

    I agree, we make some good counselors! :chuckle My first name is Lauren (last name begins with a C and is very Italian..haha) ...add me on facebook if you're on there so we can keep in touch about school stuff. I really cannot wait to start this thing! Yes, I am also going to join SNA. I'm taking the TEAS on Aug 26th then staying for the student nurse info session after....are you doing this also?

    I do have Facebook but I can't seem to find your name under a search. You can send me a message on AIM and I will tell you my full name and see if you can find it on Facebook. I was going to take the TEAS test on the Thurs. 28 but I suppose I can take it on Tues. 26 instead of Thursday, it doesn't really matter. I haven't submitted my paper yet for my class preference because I am delivering it by hand along with my background check tomorrow. I put down that I wanted Foote from 8 - 9:20 AM on M,W followed by Aflague from 9:30 - 10:50 on M,W. I wanted to do this order because my friends in the program say that sitting through Aflague's class early in the morning on a test day for Foote's class is like torture. Most of them agree that Aflague's class is easier to do after Foote's class. I have to admit this is the first time in a long time that I have been actually excited for school which is pretty far out.

    Well said Greeneyes.... you are right we have ALL worked very hard even though we have taken different paths and I agree that no one deserves it more than another. Chris & Lauren you guys are great - and would definately make good counselors!!! I'll be your client if you decide to get a job on the side Thanks for all your time/advice/listening!!! Good luck w/school!!!!

    Hi there,
    I am a complete newbie to this website but so far I am loving it! Could someone help me here? I am a transfer student (29 yo) but need to take my "core pre-reqs" All chems, a few Bio's and A & P. I am taking all of those at Ric. If I do well in those classes what are my chances of getting admitted? I am not working so I will be attending full time. Oh and I will be transferring 48 credits! My GPA coming stinks! But I am 10 yrs older, paying 100% out of pocket so I am defintly more motivated to acheive this dream!

    Here is the problem. I completely SUCk at math and chem. Luckily my hubby doesn't so he can help! DO I have a shot in hell at this? Is there a wait list and when would the soonest be to apply for the nursing program?
