I know the application period does not close until early April, but I have my application in and am going nuts just waiting to hear. Anyone else applying? How were your application points? Let's keep in touch and pass the time!

I will be applying. I have been waiting because I am hoping to hear if I got into SU. I am taking the compass test on Friday (unless I get a letter from SU tomorrow! and then I won't be applying!) and then will work on my application over the weekend. I already sent transcripts in.

If you have more than 103 points, you shouldn't be worried. But be prepared for Shoreline. It is VERY, VERY HARD

I applied for Fall 2013, I don't really remember what my point total was.. something around 103 I think. I just got accepted to LWIT, but I really want to go to Shoreline. I'm so nervous! I wonder if anyone else has heard back?

I don't expect to hear back until the first two weeks of May. Waiting, waiting, waiting....!

I applied with 105.25 points. Waiting for the letter seems to be taking forever.
Hope I get in this time.

My advise to you is to accept LWTC. At Shoreline most of the people that apply are 4.0 students and about 30% don't make it to the second quarter. In my class 2 quit after the second week and 4 din't make it. I was one of them((. The same thing happened with the previous quarters.

AndreiC - I'm curious to hear what you found most difficult? Was it the workload, or the class material, or something else?
Thanks for the feedback!

Yeah, I'm curious too! I did accept LWIT, but was planning on going to Shoreline instead if I am accepted. It's just so much closer to home and I'd rather not be in the car to and from Kirkland every day for an hour. I'm pretty much a 3.8 student.. I think I could make it? What made people quit after just two weeks?!

Hi everyone! There is a lot to write about Shoreline nursing, however, until you won't face it you won't believe it. Same happened to me. I knew its was going to be hard, but i didn't know it is insane. I never been so stressed in my entire life. I couldn't sleep during the night, i didn't eat well. I din't work at all and I was studding all the time. I went twice to the gym, and i watched couple of movies, other than that there is no time for anything.
First two weeks we had classes from 6:30 till 3:50 and that was durable, but then clinical started and all the paper writing, presentations, quizzes exams. 3 presentations,8 quizzes, 9 exams... I was falling behind on all the reading... I my class maybe few people actually read everything.
Exams are very hard. All the questions have 3-4 right answers and you choose the best ones.
One thing I should say, I ve heard many good things about Shoreline, but I never heard from any of the student saying that they like it there.
Also, someone from the college told me that in the 4th quarter 6 students din;t make it to the 5th in the winter quarter.
Good luck to you all.

I am in the same boat with you guys....I got in at LWIT and North Seattle, waiting to hear on Shoreline. I just dont know which has the better program. LWIT is still not accrediated so that worries me and the program is newer. I dont know anyone that has come out of there.
I know people out of North and Shoreline but have never taken any classes there. Has anybody heard about LWIT graduates being good?

I have a few friends at LWIT and they said that they like it there. I went and spoke with a few teachers at LWIT nursing program and I was told that they lose a person maybe two. 95% of their students pass the state exam vs Shoreline 100%. Shoreline produces good nurses, but you have to study really, really hard and you don't know if you are gonna make it.

LWIT is accredited by the Washington State Dept. of Health.
