    Geesh, I feel like I've applied everywhere but I've only applied to Grossmont, Mira Costa, and City. No luck yet but I'm hoping that the 3rd time is truly a charm.

    I'm applying to grossmont this coming February 18th to get in for Fall 2014... I live down the street from Grossmont so that would be ideal for me... I also applied to National University. I pray I get into one of those schools! Do you mind sharing your TEAS score?? I studied my butt off for a few months and got %80. I feel like so many people have higher scores! Do you know anything about what the lowest points City or Grossmont took for previous semesters??

    I'm not too far from Grossmont either. I don't know anything about the range of points from previous semesters. So, you are applying for the ADN? I'm an LVN and have applied to the LVN-RN step-up programs. I got a 70. I probably should've waited to take it. I purchased the book to review but I scheduled the test about a week after my microbiology final. So, not a lot of devoted study time and it showed. However, I figured my Vet status and work experience (10 years as an LVN) would make up for the score I lacked on my TEAS. Grossmont has a policy that if not enough LVNs apply then they will not admit any. So that was the explanation I received this past application period. I've thought about National and West Coast University but I really don't want to take on any debt. I'm waiting to hear from City and if I don't get in there, then I will seriously consider a private institution.

    ...but what about NU?

    NU hasn't sent out notifications yet... I've been checking every hour, but nothing yet. Other students on here haven't heard back fro NU either. Applications just closed for NU mid January

    Oh. I heard they were going to make it harder.

    I'm not sure what you are asking... NU was going to make it harder? After the cohort 39 (the cohort I just applied to Start date of July 2014) they added more Pre-req classes in order to apply and graduate.

    dukesmama-that is awesome! I am so happy for you! You are going to save a ton of cash because the tuition is affordable at SDCC compared to National University. You were so smart to apply there.

    Thanks Tahiti!! I am very excited that I was accepted at SD City! I originally was only going to apply to NU but didn't want to put all my eggs in one basket. I am seriously considering the CC route to save money (a TON of money) and then do an online RN to BSN program. I didn't realize how many there are!! I just can't wait to start any program. I feel truly blessed
