I am in my pre-req's for the Nursing program at Everett Community College. I am applying for Winter quarter soon but I am nervous. My sister applied for spring - rejected fall - rejected and now she'll be applying there for a third time in winter with me. She didn't have to repeat any science's and got A's & B's in everything except a C in Anatomy. I'm doing good so far with A's in chem, cell and will prob get a B in Anatomy. It seems that Evcc is getting a lot of applicants every quarter so it's getting super competetive. They dont require CNA or statistics or nutrition so haven't done any of those but most other community colleges require it. I signed up for CNA program in august and dont know if I should go for stats and nutrition so I can apply to shoreline, bellevue etc OR Skagit has an LPN waitlist but they require a special nursing math that only their school offers. Should I apply up there and take that math and get on waitlist or focus more on the other non-waitlist schools? I've been hearing rumors of Skagit not being a good program so I don't want to waste my time doing that NMath class if it only applies to Skagit. SO my question would be, what community colleges have great programs that I should focus on applying to? I'm Everett area so that would be best but for fall 150+ people applied and they only take 32 people! I dont have a 4.0 due to math grades so I'm nervous! Help please

If you have more B's then A's then it is going to be hard to be accepted to Skagit.
For 30 spots they take 6 students from waiting list (old one) and the other 24 are from competitive admission. I have heard that for Spring 2011 GPA was pretty high. I have 3.96 and got in for Fall 2011
I applied to Whatcom, too, however they add extra point (+1) for previous degree so my GPA is not worth it too much
Someone with previous degree and 3.2 GPA will be ahead of me.
Check Bellevue. Admission is based more on TEAS exam results then GPA.
Also I had just been hearing that Skagit is where all the people who had to do retake's/bad gpa
All people I know that got in worked hard on their GPA and they didn't retake classes.
