i am applying for the generic option, i have a 3.4 gpa and the advisor told me that was "not bad". However, i have my doubts regarding required gpa. thank you !!!

I Also applied for miami dade college nursing generic option and My guidance counsler said the same to me. I have a 3.2 and she said it was not bad but they usually take people with really high GPAs so I was like ok i will apply to other places too. so, I applied to barry university and got accepted in a month, they mainly look at your science grades and if you have good grades and really good science grades you have a good chance. but I dont start until next fall but I will be getting my BSN instead of ASN. You should look into their program it is supposed to be one of the best around, except they are a bit pricy! good luck with everything.;)

I just wanted to say that I did get accepted to MDC spring of 08 .. so therefore they do take average GPAs so dont sweat it!! I got my acceptance letter last week. But, I turned them down because there NCLEX rate for this year was like in the high 70s while the school I am already enrolled in to start next fall 08 is in the high 90's like 96 percent!!!!! so Barry here I come!!;)

Good to know algmdc; I am starting spring 08 at mdc, i am going to the Jackson Memorial Hospital scholars program, i interviewed last week and i got it! i can't wait, I will take all classes and clinicals at jmh and then i work for them 24 months. I love Jakson and eventhoug i have the money to pay mdc out of my pocket, i rather go with the scholars program, the mentorship and opportunity to be Number 3 teaching hospital in the U.S is priceless.......Barry is great i heard, so go luck to you and next year will be crucial for you, me and the rest of lucky people that got in as well. Good luck! and Happy holidays!;)

God I am praying to get into the program.

PS I am applying for the fall term now in 2008. I hear the letters go out on May 16th. I can not wait!!!!!!!!!!! DYING TO GET IN I SWEAR.

New nursing student MDC 2008 scholar program please hellp ?????

I just came back from orientation sesion at MDC on Jackson and Baptist scholarship. Is there anyone out there that has done one of these programs and could give me some feed back. Please help me so I can make a good decision for my future.:no:

I just got great news for all those students who are dying to know if they are in to the generic nursing program in the fall of 2008. They are under new managment so they have done everything so much faster which is blessing to so many of us!

Anyway, they start going out THIS Friday THIS FRIDAY. They stop sending them on Tuesday so you should have yours by Wednesday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After that depending on the applicants if they go in or not they will be sending out letters every two weeks after until they have all their seats filled. Between Homestead and Medical they typically accept up to about 180 only 30 are admitted into the Homestead campus which is scary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Yessy,

So, let me see if I understand you. We will know within the next week!:bugeyes:

I'm still out of town but will be going in on Friday to speak to Dawn (the advisor) about the info session I missed. How did yours go?

Anything else I should know?

The wait is almost over!

Thank you so very much.

:nurse::yeah:

Basically, they said that those who got invited to the info. session were at the top of the applicant pool. They had about 1100 applicants apply. And the latest they send out acceptance letters will be next Tuesday, but they will start this Friday. So, probably by the end of the week next week we should have an answer. They gave us an application packet for the scholars program. The meeting lasted about an hour and a half. The last 20 minutes or so consisted of people asking questions. That's all I can think of for now.

Yes, everything that ymarti said. We should also have a letter by Wednesday!!!! YAYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!! I mean if they had 1100 apply, and only like 200 were invited to the info session, then I think we are in. I mean there is room for about 200 correct?

I think most that got into the session should be a little more at ease at least. Letters will keep going out until all the seats are filled. I am glad MDC has gotten so much more organized. I am surprised. I hear that before the letters would not go out until almost July!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can you guys imagine trying to wait so long? I mean I think we are very fortunate. YAY!!!

Hi guys,,, :nurse: I am really nervous tooooo,,,, But I don't know what program I am going to select if Baptist or Jackson. I need a feed back. Please helpe me!!!!!!

There have been comments on the program bein good and bas as well. I think either way it will be 50 50 chance unless you consult with a lot of people about their experiences. Let me know on any advise you do get. A lot of people are curious.

HEY!!! A lot of people have gotten there letters already!!!!!!!!!! GOODIE. Anyone here been lucky today?

:yeah:

I got accepted!!!!! I can't believe it yet, but it is here I have been accepted the the Generic Full time Nursing Program. My dream of being a nurse is within reach now. :nurse:

There are so many things to do, between shots and criminal background checks.

It is absolutely wonderful!!!! I wish the very best to everyone, let me know who else.
