Alternate!!!

Posted

Got a letter in the mail today saying that I am an alternate for Weatherford Colleges Associates Degree program. I am so excited that im on the list but nervous that I wont get a seat because people have to decline thier spot for me to get in. What do you think? Has anyone gone to WC and have any advice?

I don't know about your college, but I was an alternate and got called the last possible day. Needless to say, I had given up hope, and then I get a phone call! Good luck!

I was on the "wait list" and got it...good luck to you!!!

I applied for this fall and was denied. I was #14 on the alternate list...now I am #9. This is nuts!! I just can't stop thinking about getting in. I heard that last year at my school they went through 20-some alternates. The director of the nursing department told me that I probably won't know anything else until July 1st...when all the requirements must be met (CPR, background check, physical, etc). This means that I have to carry on as though I am getting in on the one hand -and meet these requirements...but forget about it on the other hand. AHH!!

Got the phone call today and I am no longer on the alternates list!!! To those who are... keep up with all deadlines and be hopeful.

Oh wow, Britt!!! I'm so happy for you!!!!! I've seen you around on the boards for a while, so I'm doubly-glad that you got in! :D :D :D

That was a short wait...you must have been right on the line for alternate. Are you starting in the Fall, too? Welcome to the "new nursing student club" :up:

Yes I start in the Fall... I am so excited!

Awesome! When is your orientation? We have a 2 part orientation. Our 1st one was May 2nd. Part B will be 2 weeks before fall semester starts. We have quite a bit of things to do before then (vaccination records, background check, fingerprinting, uniforms, books, ID badges, etc.)

I think the part that made it feel real was meeting my fellow classmates at orientation. :D

July 18th... we only have one orientation and I cant wait!

That is awesome!!!:laugh: I am very happy for you! You will do great :up:

I just got the call...I'm in!!!! :D Oh, I am soooooo happy.

I just got the call...I'm in!!!! :D Oh, I am soooooo happy.

That's awesome!!!! When do you have orientation? :up:

Well, I attended orientation a couple of months ago when I was just an alternate. Class starts August 15th! Now, I have to get my uniforms and all the necessary accessories. I am very very excited :yes:...and quite nervous, too. :nailbiting:

I understand being nervous and excited at the same time. I don't have orientation until next Thursday and I cant wait to hear what they have to say. Good luck to you on your journey!
