I applied to Shoreline's RN program with a point tally of 101.6, just curious if any other applicants are out there and what their points are; and if any current or past students have any insight as to what the general acceptance points are for the program - I have heard varied information, thanks!

I have applied to Shoreline as well for winter 2013. Did you factor in the bonus points that you will receive for the 2 college courses for your overall total? I have the exact same number of points as you before factoring in the 4 bonus points. I recently found out that I was accepted into the program at NSCC but Shoreline has always been my first choice. I guess we will know by the end of November. Good luck to you.

Good luck to all of you!

I will be attending Shoreline. That has always been my first choice. I feel so proud to have been one of 32 to make it into such a competitive program. Congratulations to you as well. I am so excited and am looking forward to meeting our classmates for the next two years.

Yes, I got my acceptance letter too. I'm scared that SCC is too hard to pass. Does anyone have any tip how to prepare and do well in a course?

Congratulations! It is hard to tell someone how to prepare in advance because the workload is a shock in the beginning. My tips are: don't read every single page of your reading-skim for the necessary info towards the outcomes, pair up with a group and split outcomes up between you, get a day planner and put everything in it.....study time, work out time, grocery shopping, class, due dates for each assignment...etc. organization is key to staying on track. I save money by buying the previous edition books for class too. The first year is the most intense, then it let's off. Also, always act professional during clinicals, you never know who may be watching and you may want a job there one day

Also, reach out for help! Talk to your advisor and instructors for tips. They want you to succeed!

Congratulations! I applied for Fall 2014 and I'm discouraged that the minimum points for admission to Winter 2013 were 104.25. It doesn't seem possible to get over 104 points unless you have extensive volunteer hours and/or EMT/LPN experience. Is this an average? I didn't see anything on the "Calculate Your Own Points" sheet that showed fractional points. Oh well, all I can do now is to wait.

Oops, late night addition error. I actually had 10 more points than I thought I did when I was reading about the minimum points for past classes. Is there any way to delete posts? (Blushing...)
