    So just to confirm based on the email I got, there will be a blackboard orientation and in-person orientation for the AP BSN program correct? Is there any other meeting or orientation that I am missing? Thanks!!

    Anyone have any ideas as to what days Parkland does their clinicals days on? Just curious
    I think those are the only ones.

    She did not say how many were on the waitlist. She couldn't disclose that information but by basic math then yes it would seem that 280 are waitlisted. Parkland/Dallas children's was about the same applicants as JPS/cook's. The meeting was a general information meeting for those waitlisted or denied. The information was on the document you got from the nursing admission office that had your decision on it.

    Thank you LHarvick - I totally missed that - all that I got to was the word "waitlist". Guess I should have read more carefully - through my tears! sigh. Thanks for taking notes for us!

    It's ok. Apparently a lot of people missed that because at the 0845 meeting there were only 5 people there! Not what I was expecting at all unless the rest of the people went at the 1300 meeting.

    Like MelTX2012 said it's nice to have some idea of what to expect next. Hopefully we can get some good news soon.

    Just a note of encouragement for those on the Waitlist AND those that received 'Not Accepted' emails. I'm in AP-Cohort 7, and there were quite a few addeed in the weeks following emails, right up until the week before we started. The Dean called each person added, so keep checking email, but also keep the phone ringer up.

    What we found was that waitlisted persons are usually partnered, and they are waiting for seats to open at that site. While some of those added were originally waitlisted, the majority were non-partnered that originally received denial emails. Partnered is an advantage, in that they are the first accepted. The drawback to being partnered, is that you are limited to that site. The non-partnered people received calls before those waitlisted, and were given a choice between sites with open seats. Take heart, whatever situation applies to you, there is a good chance you will get a call.

    To those already accepted, start NOW!! Get organized, get your books as soon as possible, and start reading. Current students can guide you on what to start reading first. Spend time with friends/family now, because once you start, your life is all about studying and clinicals. If you get to spend time with friends/family after you start, you just spend your time thinking you need to study. It's doable, but start ahead of the game. Read now.

    Thanks so much for the encouragement - I, for one, needed it - been feeling particularly disappointed as all of my eggs were in this basket. The AP at UTA was the only program that I applied to ~ didn't even apply for the inclass program (since my advisor wrongly told me that I had to choose and apply for one program or the other - that I could not apply for both - lessons learned.) After reading this, I'm a bit more hopeful that there may be a shot after all, but certainly taking steps to apply for other programs as well. Thanks again for putting "waitlist" in perspective for some of us.

    kajnkween....You're not the only one who has been feeling very disappointed! I'm in the same boat as you. This was the only program I applied to primarily due to location, but also because I had heard it was one of the best. Just wanted to let you know you are not alone, a lot of us are feeling the same way!

    Thanks MelTx2012 ~ I wouldn't wish this feeling on anyone, so therefore hate to say it ~ but it helps to know that I'm not alone. I'm an "older student" as I think many of us are, so I am definitely feeling a time pressure as well - not a great feeling but hanging in there all the same!!
