    I think it is unfair, apple13. I mean, they aren't give students a suitable amount of time for preparation. We have a lot to get done in such little time! I just wish they'd be more accurate in their timing and be a lot quicker too. I mean I understand that they have other priorities and work to attend to but come on...this is ridiculous! We've been waiting forever. But don't worry, the wait is almooost over. I'm so sure we will hear something by next week! If not, I will definitely give them a call. In the meantime, let's say a prayer and hope we get shortlisted

    I have soo much homework and studying for this weekend.. How am I going to do any of it with the middle of October looming and NO word from BCIT. I am remaning positive, however, I am getting a tad impatient.

    I know it will come next week.. Its got to, or I will be calling someone as well..
    PLEASE anyone who gets word post it ASAP!! Maybe someone will want to spread some good news over the weekend instead of waiting for Monday...

    Hey guys. I totally feel ya! I remember thinking I was going to go nuts waiting to find out if I got in. It is such a long a wait for Jan intake but it's not just because the people at the top are super busy with 6 levels of students to organize, place in clinical etc, but because the people who make the decisions around there are very thorough. It's not like there is 10 or even 5 people going through each of your applications, so it takes time. Think about how hard you worked to make sure your application was perfect? All the credentials that you have worked hard for.....you probably want that acknowledged right? The process of getting the application through BCIT admissions and to the Nursing department is something that is being evaluated. Everyone will find out, one way or another, soon. Your applications are being evaluated and the people evaluating them are doing pretty much only that. I think they have over 300 to go though after the initial cut from BCIT admissions...so that's alot. They will also shortlist in batches, so a group at a time, and everyone over a couple of weeks I believe. So if you don't hear as soon as someone else does, don't worry you will. The only things that kept me sane were this forum, and knowing that if I didn't hear "today" maybe that was because they were taking the time to be sure they picked the right group.
    Bulma briefs- a letter of intent is basically a letter stating why you feel you should be accepted over everyone else. Aside from your academic credentials, why will you succeed in BCIT's program...as I'm sure you know, it's different from a typically University program.

    Hello Smiley65, wow thank you for writing such a response! I now feel more positive about this whole application process.
    So, now we're going to be hearing in another couple of weeks?! Dear god, I think I'll turn into a skeleton while sitting here waiting to here back...I'll look like this...

    If we don't get shortlisted, will they send us a letter or something to let us know? Or is it forever waiting, hoping that you'll be the next batch to hear the good news?

    Everyone finds out, either way.

    And you sent that today?

    I had the worst dream last night about not getting short-listed, it was a nightmare.

    I'm probably going to be checking ALL EVENING whilst studying... I will be sure to post
    as soon as I get anything!!

    Yup, sorry I forgot to mention that I sent the email this morning and she replied back an hour ago. So yes today

    Aww, Don't worry too much about this whole application thing, we're going to give ourselves headache and stress for no reason. I know it's hard but we'll eventually find out! Lol. I've checked other forums and they heard at around the exact same time as we possibly could (oct 15-19). Also, I read a post from one applicants who posted, at like two in the morning on oct. 16th, saying she was shortlisted.
    Lol. So you're not alone....I'll be up at 3 in the morning today:\

    Ahh! It seems crazy that after months of waiting, we could only have less than 24 hours left... and yet, it still seems like forever to wait.

    To let everyone know, I have heard of a few friends hearing that they haven't been accepted
  12. by   iheartpurple
    Eoates you mean IT'S HAPPENING?!
    Oh my, oh my, oh my! I just got some crazy butterflies. Now, I don't want to check anymore. I'd rather no news
    than bad news!

    BulmaBriefs you'll be up at 3 for fun? or I'm thinking something a little more like work-related..
  13. by   BulmaBriefs
    Lol I think today is when they sent out non-acceptance letter you guys! So hopefully none of us will get those emails!
    and iheartpurple, I'm going to stay up at 3 just to see if i get any emails....as you can clearly tell...all this waiting has made me gone bonkers!
