    I still had slight hope last week that I'd get a call cause some people do drop out last second but now that the program started today I highly doubt there is any chance left. I'm more set on the August intake anyway cause there is a hefty amount of pre-reading & preparation to be done the month before.

    They havent closed the waitlist cause it was still valid up until now. I'm think they'll close it this week and then our status should change to the Aug intake.

    @mass59: I Wish us all the best for this intake! Lets stay positive When I had submitted my resume I wrote things about myself, my education, work/volunteer experience, certificates, hobbies & interests, specially made for BCIT nursing only. I had also listed that I'd been working for PLEA community services as well. Basically I wrote everything down that really highlighted who I was, what my strengths & key qualities are, etc. Have you submitted your resume yet? or..? I mean we still have time until the end of this month

    @ careubc: That sounds about right! I'm sure we'll be hearing some goods news hopefully for this intake. Have you called the nursing department by any chance to see how you could possibly become more competitive? I'm also kind of glad that I did not get accepted for the January intake because now I'm taking the 6 credit Human anatomy & physiology course online and it's really going to benefit me when I am in the program. I have to complete the course before August though because we have until November this year to complete it!

    Not sure what you're trying to ask, but if you're asking whether or not waitlisted statuses have changed for guaranteed August intake spots--it will not change til March/April from what my email said when I decided to defer.

    Thanks vana, but I was asking for those that didn't get into the January intake and are reapplying for August... Has anyone's mybcit account status been updated yet to an august intake applicant? I guess I just thought they would have updated our account from 'waitlisted for Jan' to 'applicant for Aug' by now as it's a week and a half in.

    Hey Everyone!

    I'm currently in term 5 of the nursing program at BCIT (will be starting preceptorship in August 2013... yay!). Just wanted to wish you all good luck!!!!

    FYI: I was waitlisted as well and had to wait a semester before I finally got in. While I waited I used the time to finish some of my online prerequisites such as libs 7001 and 7002. Being waitlisted in my opinion isn't too bad... enjoy your freedom now while you can
