Anyone applied to Alvin Community College Spring 2011? I haven't seen much information regarding the application process for Alvin Community College. Please share your experience if you have applied.

Im working on switching to this college to apply for the ADN program. I am taking the ACT test in a month. Have you taken the test yet? I wonder how hard it is to get in. I am coming from San Jac and they are just ridiculous overfilled with applicants.

Edited by JenSanchea123

I just called Alvin CC nursing department and the lady that answered said they had about 300 applicants apply last January. They accept 70. Most had a GPA about 3.7. Hope this helps other people that are thinking of applying cause I had a hard time on here finding info about Alvin Community College.

Hi Kasie123,

I took the SAT...never took the ACT...I thought it was either/or??

Anyway! I know the GPA is in the Pre Reqs only, so I hope that helps... Thanks for posting..Its good to see other students applying to ACC that are on tjhis forum. Well, good luck! What semester are you applying for?? Im applying for the fall... Are also going to apply at Brazosport?

anyone applying for the fall 2011? Im going to the orientation on Feb 3. Kinda excited I hear great things about this school. My overall act score was a 27 not sure if that is good enough. Please share with me your score so I can compare lol

I hope we both get in pink4!!! Im pretty much done with my pre reqs too! So your taking health assessment and dosage calculations in the summer?? I did't know you can do that?? Fill me in please!!! I would love to get those out of the way!! I can't wait either. Are you applying anywhere else??

yeah..to brazosport college.. Im doing my adn first..then bsn.. then prob crna..I wanted to do BSN straight at first, but the way I see it I will understand the classes better with a little experience under my belt..Im a cna right now, and shadowing the nurses at my job..which I am thankful for cuz it allows me some experience with patients and learning on the job skills..plus you get extra points if your in the healthcare field on your app to nursing school at both those schools.. you can take those courses at ACC before even being accepted actually, online in the instructions for 2 yr, it says so..the health assesment is from may 11- may 26, and the dosage calc is June 1- July 6..Im a Brazosport now doing Micro and med term..

nice its good that you already have some sort of experience. Im sure that will help you out!! Did you register for those classes already? I want to do that too!

not yet...they cant registered until april sometime..but im lookking forward to it..I am hopeful to get in..Im almost certain the science course will be a tremendous factor in getting in for the program..at least thats what I hear..I went to a general info session last november..I do KNOW the gpa they look at is that of the pre reqs only! Which is awesome for me because I unfortunately did not take college too seriously my freshman year! lol

sorry my grammar and spelling are off...starting to fall asleep..got class in the morn..but will stay on as long as I can(prob 30 min or so) to answer any questions you might have..lol =)

ok good i just checked the acc registration site and i didn't see it there. I might go ahead and try to take those :) i think the science courses will help. i actually took nutrition and growth and development online there last fall so hopefully that helps me out a little. I didnt take college seriously but now im focused!! i went to the info session too last year and they seemed really organized and the science hall is up to date, i was very impressed. I also went to wharton cc infor session and wasn't as pleased at all with their campus. I want to get into acc so bad i dont know why haha

i wonder what hospitals they do their rotations at?

wake up! only kidding thanks for helping me out. Its good to hear from people that are planning on doing the same thing im doing.

one more question lol do you know if those classes are online or in class?

Well the campus is top notch! And Not to mention their success rate and they've been in business for a while so they know what they're doing.. I found the dates for class and registration in the course catalog PDF.. I'm a bit obssesed (in a good way lol) about getting into this program I think I look at the intrustions PDF like twice a day! Lol! It's bookmarked on my iPhone too! Sad.. Lol

Lol I'm up! I know one for certain is online.. And the other stated TBA..That's if I remember it right.. Ah geez sleep is getting me.. Lol.. So when I go to the college I'll find out.. I have to take them my transcripts anyways so I'll ask then.. You applying anywhere else????

im taking my transcripts on feb 3 last year i remember a whole bunch of people turning all their stuff in that same day as the orientation and I was thinking to myself "overachievers"! Now im doing the same hhaha. No im just applying to acc. i told myself if i dont get in ill just continue taking my pre reqs i need for my bsn.

Me too! If I don't get in for some weird reason I'll continue with bsn reqs... But I hope I get in since all my academic classes and pre reqs are completed.. Im registering to take those to classes this summer whether I get in or not though.. But since they take a good amount of student and I have A's in my a&p's and working to hopefully get an a in micro I hope that'll do it! Lol! But I do have a B in English... So AHH!!! Idk I get worried and all OCD feeling thinking about the program!! Lol

Thats good im sure you'll get another A. And im sure we will both get in! One of the teacher there told me the majority of those who get in the program are the ones who have most if not all there pre reqs done. So like micro, anp 1 and 2, humanities, english, you the drill lol. So if we have those out of the way and you take dose calc and health assessment im sure you'll get in! When you apply make sure you let them know that your are taking those to make you look better. Damn why am i helping my competition!! Lol jk :)

Do you live in alvin and are you going to work during the program? Sorry if im asking too much questions just curious :D
