Calling all Southwest Tennessee Community College 2012 Fall Hopefuls - page 2

The deadline to apply is February 1, 2012. How many are applying? I thought I would start a thread so we can all wait together, and get to know each other. I finished my special application today... Read More

    Does anyone know how to tell if all the admissions criteria have been completed, and you are in the running for the 2012 Fall Nursing School? The Admissions lady is not much help, and is rude as hell also. It is hard as hell getting a straight answer from anyone at Southwest.

    I called a few days before the deadline to verify my application was complete. It is my understanding if we were missing anything in our file there would have been a list stating what was missing in the letter we received. So if you didn't have an additional sheet of paper with your certified letter, then your application is complete. It will be a long wait until April.

    I am getting nervous myself. I have not even added up to see what my index score is. I am also taking Nutrition and Psychology this semester along with Philosophy. I am really enjoying the classes. You had a big load with AP, Micro and Statistics. I do not know how you did it.

    I don't know how I didn't it either, I feel stress free this semester. I am really enjoying the nutrition class as well.

    Hi Sheri. It is understood that the Fall program is a little less competitive since you will be taking classes during the day. Also, I know the chosen index scores for the Fall program are slightly lower than the index scores of applicatants in the Spring. Do you know your index score at this time? If so, do you mind sharing it with us? If I remember correctly, you applied for the Spring program and did not get accepted. If that is the case, I honestly don't see you having any problems being accepted this time around. Good luck to you!!

    I am guessing about a month and a half more of waiting.For now it isn't always on my mind but I have a feeling the closer April gets the more impatient I will become.

    Soooo, I called to verify that my app was received, as I have yet to receive an acknowledgement letter. Admissions tells me it was sent out on Jan 30.....REALLY? I asked if it was sent to the address on the app or the one in the system...She said the system ...which was wrong..i moved in January. By this point I'm near tears and stressed. I worked too hard to wait another year!!!!! I asked to speak with any one who may know what my letter said or if my packet was complete, I was transfered to Ms ****, in "Allied Health Admissions", who didn't answer. When I asked for the extension so I could call back later, the admissions lady refused, Flat out said I was not allowed to have her number!!!!!!!! So I calmly replied I would call back.
    3 hours later I Finally get thru to the elusive Miss Shaw who proudly proclaims I have a right to speak with her and gave me her direct number. She also said my rank was "very good":redpinkhe, the committee will meet next Monday!!!!! and I could give her number to anyone who had questions!!!! Message me for the digits! and It may take a while for her answering machine to pick up so WAIT. She returns all messages timely and seems to take pride in her job.

    How exciting to know they will meet next week. So happy your rank is " very good" what is your index score or a range of what could be considered "very good". Might put some of the rest of our minds at ease.

    Hello hopefuls, I to am waiting. I applied for the Spring class but was rejected because SW lost a transcript...(although, they had the receipt they had received it,) which made me ineligible for college-level math...the lost transcript had four higher ed math classes on it! Ms. S---w, was very helpful to me...but the nursing school absolutely refused to consider me....since material that SW officially accepted was not in the committee's hands on time! Go figure. This waiting game is awlful. I also applied to Baptist last year and was accepted, but it is too expensive for our family at this time. Anyone out there got a great-game-plan to pay? Good luck to each of you. CodyandMollymom...

    I got a rejection letter Saturday for this Fall. Reason given was they didn't have all college transcripts. This is confusing as I applied last year for the Spring and was rejected due to my index and not transcripts. Was I supposed to have all of my transcripts resent to Southwest to reapply? This is a HUGE bummer. I am in a crappy job holding pattern until I can get this show on the road
