    I heard horror stories about micro but it was not as bad as I thought. The key to that class was memorization and studying her notes.

    Thanks for the insight! I'm registered to take microbio at my school in the spring. I might end up dropping it, if I'm accepted. Microbiology at my school is horrendous. Nevertheless, it would be good prep. I've already completed developmental psychology and need stats to complete my English degree. Those will probably be the classes that I transfer.

    If stats isn't a "Math" course offered thru the math dept union may not accept it. I took stats for my Bio degree and master's and neither transferred. Unfortunately I had to take it a third time. Hopefully you are OK cause I wouldn't wish that class on anyone. It takes me two days to do homework if not it would take about 8 hours!

    Oh no! That sucks. The stats class at my school is offered through the math dept, so my fingers are crossed. I'm not very good at math. My B in precalc was an achievement.

    OK good! Hopefully it transfers, I hope so! Last year I heard something about interviews around this time. My interview was in Jan, so if they are doing the same process you all should be hearing something soon.

    yall stats is THE DEVIL!! I actually took a self-pace course and it was challenging nevertheless to teach myself but I made it out with an A. Beautiful, Im soo glad you showed up and offered this reassurance that we all needed!

    No problem. I try to check the site on a regular basis just to see if any new questions about union are on here that I may be able to answer. Did Wendy say when interviews start or when acceptance emails go out

    The only thing she mention at preview day was that it would be a couple of weeks before we would hear anything...She said at preview day too that the TEAS is no longer required. Maybe we will start to hear something before the holiday break.

    I got an email from Union thanking me for my interest and that the second priority deadline is in Feb. I hope I hear back from them before then.

    Hey everyone,
    I joined this site to hopefully get some much needed input (I've called, and called, and called.... and emailed UU to no avail, and it takes WEEKS to get a response from them right now). I have a bachelors in science, and have applied for the Hendersonville, Spring 2013 ABSN program. Because my AP pre-reqs are in progress, I received an acceptance letter as an "alternate canditate". They have given me less than a week's notice to come up with 600.00! (For a VERY newly wed, on a tight budget, with nearly no notice, this amount is almost crippling to procure.) What happens if I come up with this money and I don't get accepted this spring and still have to apply for the fall? Should I risk making my other bills late to come up with this money, and not be able to by my new husband ANYTHING for Christmas to take the chance that I COULD get in, in the spring? Or just wait and apply for the fall? Does anyone know what the chances are of actually getting in as an alternate? Any info, or maybe just some encouragement, would be great! Thanks!

    Dantexs77, I don't have an answer for you, but let me know what you figure out, in case I end up in the same boat. You should try calling admissions as soon as their office opens! If there is a possibility that you won't be accepted after paying the $600, then I wouldn't risk it. They extended the Fall deadline to Feb 1st. Perhaps you could reapply for the Fall semester?
