    No way. That is a total bummer. Well that means I'm not getting one. I've been on since Jan. 07. I'm so sorry cupcake619 to hear that. So they sent out all of them?

    I answered my own question. I just called and they said they sent out all the first set of invitations. So now it all matters on who accepts/denies.

    I'm sorry you didn't get a letter. If there is no night and weekend program then there will probably be 40 slots instead of 70. There will be some people who postpone/decline. It may be a couple weeks before its sorted out. I think they also send letters to people who are on standby. But I don't know when those go out.

    I have been on the waiting list since July '06. Last semester I was told that I was so close that I almost made it. This semester I wasn't even in the first group. I wasn't aware that they had canceled their night/weekend course. That would make a huge difference in wait time.

    All I have to say is wow! I just honestly can't even believe that but that would make sense. There's the scripps employees that get guaranteed spots too but I think they made extra room for them. That's a huge bummer.

    The same thing happened to me.I was told Spring 09, then fall 09. I called last week I didn't even get a letter. Grossmont was my frist choice but looks like city for me. I wish they would reveal the number on the waitlist how city does.

    Yeah cupcake you should go to City! I think everyone should go to City and just forget about Grossmont! Hahahaha! That would make my life a little bit easier! :spin:

    I got on the list January 2006. I was accepted for Fall 2008, but I had to defer for a year due to not wanting to put my child in fulltime daycare and being there for my mom as she was dying from colon cancer. I really wanted to do the Evening/Weekend program, but they haven't offered it. So, really I was on the waiting list for 2 1/2 years. Yes, I am finally starting after 3 1/2 years!

    Just wanted to let everyone know that I spoke with some incoming nursing students while we were getting our ID pics taken and they told me that they waited 3 years to get into City.

    I took the final in the LVN-RN transition course and I'm pretty sure I passed. I studied very hard for it. I will post back when I know my score for sure because that means that I got accepted into City

    Thanks for the update Faeriewand! Being a 'waitlister' it sure makes me feel better to hear that! I'm sure you did great on your final! Keep us posted
