A little advice from El Centro Students


I recently submitted my application packet (for spring 08) to El Centro. I know it has only been a few weeks, but I am just wondering how long did it take you guys to receive your acceptance letters.

Thanks (Also, I am willing to take any advice about the program that you would like to give)

Hello, I just wanted to say hi. I will be sending in my app. as soon as I finish HPRS, for spring 08. Hopefully we will both get in.

I will be starting my 1st semester at North Lake next month. The deadlines for applying & when they notify you are both in your application packet. It seems like our apps were due by 2/28 & we were supposed to be notified by 4/15. I remember that part because I was freaking out - 4/15 was a Sunday & 4/16 was some holiday & they didn't deliver the mail that Monday. Luckily for those of us that were on pins & needles, they mailed the letters out a day or two early so I received mine on 4/14.

The best advice I can give you is to go to Kanora's information session & take her seriously. She has a sharp sense of humor & is oodles of fun, but she also turns on a dime and tells you she's not joking - and she's not! She requires all i's to be dotted & t's to be crossed & she's the one who goes through the apps, so do EXACTLY what she tells you to & you should be fine.

Good luck!

i thought in order to get this scholarship you had to be starting in the fall. thats the one reason i did not apply cause it says be accepted to a nursing program with a fall start...if anyone knows anything different i would love to know ....

Hi all,

as before mentioned your application packet should tell you when they will let you know of your acceptance. I am now a 3rd semester student at EC, but I don't remember the dates. It seems like endless waiting, though.


I am not sure of what scholarship you are talking about. Tell us more.

Good luck, everyone
