- 0Jan 25 by 3prouommyI am freaking out!!!!!! I have been accepted to Lone Star's program twice, but could not start due to issues with the Texas Board of Nursing. Now here I am again, except this time those issues have been taken care of (thank the Good Lord). Ironically, I've run into another problem: Maximum timeframe suspension. I know I will be accepted again, but I am stressed out about this whole appeals process. I don't have a degree, but have 100 plus credit hours, after satisfying requirements for the universities while I waited on the Board of Nursing. My first appeal was denied, and I haven't appealed the decision because i wanted to wait until I received the letter of acceptance from the program. Anybody familiar with this process? If so, how did it work out for you? I have a cousin who is in the same predicament, and any info you can provide would help the both of us. Thanks in advance.

Worst case scenario, I'll have to save up some money from working before the program starts to pay for my classes, but it's like gosh!The same happened to me. It seem like it's one step foward and two steps back. I waiting to file my second appeal too. I have been trying to research and find discussion threads, etc, to help win the appeal but from what I've read so far........it doesn't look good.
- 0Feb 1 by livnlifeQuote from 3prouommyFor those waiting on appeals, they have changed the appeals process This semester. It is no longer done at the college financial aid level. It is now done at a system level, with all sites meeting at one meeting. I was very fortunate to have most of my program fin aid approved except my last semester. That will be all out of pocket. Working more than 10-20 hours will be difficult during the program. I highly suggest you do not rule out Universities. Prairie View offers great scholarships and your cost of tuition will be about the same of LSCS if you qualify for these Scholarships. Apply for the Universities and Lonestar.What a bummer!!! Now that I'm so close, here's another hurdle. Worst case scenario, I'll have to save up some money from working before the program starts to pay for my classes, but it's like gosh!
- 1Feb 2 by 3prouommyOf course. However, I do not have the time to wait for the Universities and the madness involved with their selection processes. I gotta finish, even if it means I have to sacrifice my sleep and sanity. My husband has a decent job, which is a blessing, and I can save up from now until the fall if necessary. I've applied to UTHSC as well, but I'm not gonna hold my breath. I know I'll get accepted to Lone Star, since I have before; I'm just ready to be done with school already, so if some sacrifices have to be made, I'm gonna have to make them.
