    Yes! it would definitely be more effective to have requirements that are streamlined!!

    Seattle U requires Math 110 (or higher) as a prereq. I have college calculus, but it was more than 10 years ago, so they won't accept it. Math 138 is EvCC's equivalent.
    Phew! I was panicking for a minute. I am taking MATH 102 at South Seattle CC and when I read you are taking MATH 138 I thought I needed one more. My current Algebra class is the equivalent of SU's MATH 110. Enough with the stress!

    Has anyone heard any updates on when letters will go out? I am trying not to think about it but that doesn't seem to be working...

    I haven't heard anything new, the transfer admissions counselor said letters would be going out end of March to early/mid April. I have always thought the 4 hours window comcast gives you when coming over to fix cable was horrible. are they coming right a 9? Or at 1? this whole waiting for a month to see if a (good) letter is going to show up--infinitely worse.

    I would have freaked out too. So I just looked again at the equivalency list. There is no actual equivalent class at EvCC. So i was told to find the class that will transfer for a higher SU class. Looking at the list i could take Math 105, which at EvCC is Trig. but 138 is applied college algebra for non math majors, so I figure it will be pretty basic.

    Does anyone happen to know how many transfer applicants and transfer spots they have this year??

    I just remember being told by the transfer advisor it had to be college level algebra. ????

    Now someone told me they believed UW required THREE Chemistry classes. I think it's only two but the panic has set in.

    Anxious for this whole process to be over and to move forward!

    If you are a transfer student/applicant to the University of Washington, they only require two chem classes - so you are correct. No need to panic!!!!
    I've been panicking over EVERYTHING, and retracing all of the application requirements to see what I possibly could have forgotten and left out.....we are all going to be nutso before this process is over.

    I totally agree! I am hoping no more than two more weeks of waiting. I was trying to explain to my daycare people about the 3 different possible scenarios that may happen for next quarter. She was confused! Thankfully they are really flexible.

    Exactly! It's very complex and you'd think that the requirements from program to program would be more similar than they are. My friend is applying to TacomaCC's program and they require sociology?????

    Also, I'd love to see Microbiology and Chemistry courses at the CC school level be more nursing-focused since it seems to me that 90% of the people taking them are headed that route and a lot of the content is not used in nursing. I've shown RNs at my work the stuff I've studied and they all respond with "you'll never use that in nursing". A lot of the older nurses never even studied some of the stuff I have had. I agree there is value in those courses but making the content more applicable to nursing would be useful. I feel like a lot of these classes are just good for giving $$ to my CC. Just my two cents.

    My Chem teacher actually did make a lot of reference to healthcare, because he did see so many pre-nursing students, as did my Micro teacher. It was nice to be able to connect things together in a practical way. And I have had A TON of nurses that I work with say they are glad they are already nurses and didn't have to do what I am currently doing.

    Everett makes you take cultural anth, which actually makes some sense, because it does make you think about other cultures differently, plus it is pretty APA writing intensive, but I am sure i'll get to put that to good use in any program :/

    I was looking on SPU's website (again) and in their FAQ they do say they try to get all letters out before spring quarter starts. So that is excellent news.

    One more busy week of Winter quarter!! Then hopefully good news!

    I just spent the last hour ordering more transcripts for my next program deadline. I won't have enough time to send them if I end up not making it into SPU or SU by the end of March. That is irritating. It is partially my fault for having gone to so many colleges, but really there is a reason for every one! I don't like that a lot of place require 2 sets , one for the college and one for the nursing program. Why can't they share?

    It's unbelievable, isn't it? I can appreciate that one of the reasons they ask for so many seemingly trivial things is to make sure that applicants are REALLY reading all the instructions.....but I'm with you! Sharing is caring!
    If it makes you feel any better, in addition to SU I applied at the UW as well.....I was asked to write the proctored essay, and at that essay session, the advisor said that one of the reason the 280 of us were asked to move forward is because we followed all of the instructions....they eliminated 180 plus people right off the bat, and that was due in large part to people not completing the application in the manner that was dictated....I'm sure in the scheme of things it will all work out to our favor, right?
    The waiting is almost over - thank goodness!
