    I thought you had started this Spring?? Or am I confusing you with someone else?

    Nope. I wish. I've been on the waiting list since Jan 2006.

    I'm in the n&w program at grossmont and that is what they told the people in my class that didn't pass the first semester.

    I just received my acceptance email with a letter to follow up for Grossmont! Anyone else? Now I have to choose between SD City or Grossmont

    I'm so happy that after waiting since Jan 2006, I will finally be starting nursing school!
    yayyyy!!! that is so exciting! congratulations!! & good luck with your choice. let us know which school you choose!

    Congrats to all you who got into Grossmont's program.
    I applied in Jan 08 and the waiting list is 3-4 years. Heck, science courses expire after 5 years! I've spread my eggs in other baskets, so to speak, and hopefully one of those will pan out. I can't hold my breath for Grossmont, even though I would love to go there. It's far cheaper (than schools like National University), and much closer to home. However if you factor in a min. 3 years waiting list, 30+K in debt doesn't sound so bad.

    Good luck to you all!

    Well i certainly will not be starting this fall! I still have more than 40 people ahead of me on the wait list. I asked the nursing department why I was told to take the teas and they said I was within the limit but more people than expected took it this I got bumped further down. I said what about spring? I was told it was unlikely...what about fall 09?....Still won't tell me for sure! If I don't get in by fall 09 I must look for another major, I'm getting too old for this. THREE YEARS IS A LONG TIME! ok I feel a little better now.

    That is one thing that I did not like about Grossmont. They wouldn't tell me anything about my placement on the waiting list. They do not update their lists at all like other schools do. If they did, I'm sure they would have a better idea of when students are likely to start.

    You never know if some students like myself are on other waiting lists, so you might get in.When I called in January, they told me that I also might have to wait until next Spring but I'm in for the Fall. I have yet to decide which school I will attend since I also got in at SD City. I will most likely go to City because Grossmont's orientation falls right in the middle of a vacation that I have planned. I hate to think that I have to choose a school because I can't make it to the orientation which is mandatory.

    Hang in there and don't give up. You're sooo close!

    good luck to you too, katilynn!!

    do you have an externship or anything lined up over the summer? or do you guys have class over the summer? just curious. no one has been able to line up a summer externship in our class, so i'm wondering if anyone did in your class.

    No, no one in my class has a summer externship, but a few of us are going to take our acls class during the summer. Most of the places I looked at wanted 4th semester students.
