    When I applied to RSCC, I was a 'nursing candidate.' I was given a nursing adviser. When it came time in December/January to apply to the program, I applied to nursing, rad tech, and opticianary (sp.). Apparently when I did that, it reapplied me to the school as an opticianary major. I assumed they should have assigned me a different adviser because the one I had was for nursing, but they didn't. The other day, I saw that my raidernet said I was an 'opticianary candidate.' I emailed admissions and asked them to fix it. They did. Raidernet then said 'nursing candidate,' along with the same adviser I have had the entire time. It's never changed. Then I looked at it the other day, and my adviser changed. But, she is also a nursing adviser. It doesn't really make sense to me that they would change it now, especially when I already had a nursing adviser....

    Thanks, Kate. I have always been a "nursing candidate" with a nursing advisor. Maybe we will get the official word tomorrow.

    The waiting is making me insane! I was sure we would know by this evening!! I wonder how many more days we must wait?

    Maybe until Monday?? I know the website says the first week in May, and the 30th is in that week. I don't see how they couldn't have the emails ready to go. I mean, it's been since January. And if the emails are ready, I don't know why they would want to make us wait until next week.

    Agree! I hate waiting and I for sure thought we would know last week. Hopefully Monday will be the big day!

    Just letting everyone know, I emailed the nursing admissions coordinator on Friday (4/27) to get an estimate for when acceptance/rejection emails will be sent. She replied on Monday, 4/30. Here is her response:

    "The nursing committee is in the final stages of the selection process. Accepted and denial notification emails will be sent next week."

    Unless they finish early, we will be getting the emails sometime between 5/7-5/11. We could be waiting up to twelve more days!! I'm so on edge, twelve days will feel like an eternity! Peaceful waiting wishes to you all!

    Such an exciting time for all of us who have applied. Did any of you apply to other schools as well? I've applied to RSCC, LMU, WSCC, and PSCC, just to play things safe. I'd read on previous posts last year that some students had only applied to one college and were extremely devastated when they didn't get in. Others posted that they had applied to several schools and only one school accepted them. I'm starting to get really anxious, as I'm sure all of you are. My biggest concern at this point is my GPA. With a 3.5 GPA, I'm hoping that by having lot of extra credit hours accumulated, that they will make up for the B's that I got in some of my classes. I have heard that they award extra points for credit hours earned over the requirements. Not sure how all of that works. Have any of you heard this as well? I wish each of you the best.

    One of the girls who was going to apply spoke with ****** *******. She told her that if you have quite a few accumulated credit hours that it may help the committee in making their decision. She didn't say anything about extra points, but she doesn't really have a clue about their points system. She said that the committee likes to keep everyone in the dark. I'm really counting on the extra help from my lengthy list of extra classes. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for all of us!
