Just curious if any who have applied have heard if they've been accepted to CCAC Nursing program for Spring 2010 admittance?

Also, does anyone out there know what the likelihood is of getting your fist choice?

They won't be sending out acceptance letters until mid- to late-October.

The chances of getting into your first choice really depend on your GPA and your NET test results. They create a number out of those and rank everyone from highest to lowest.

Good luck!! :D

I have also applied or the CCAC/CUP nursing program, and I am also going crazy waiting for the letter. I would assume the letters would be here before the end of October because, Spring registration starts the beginning of November. Good Luck to you all.

I have been trying to chase this info down for the last week, I too have applied for CCAC Spring 2010.

The latest I got out of them (bear that it may not be 100% accurate)

First week of November those accepted should have their letters. There are 175 seats between Boyce and Allegheny, California seats have not been released (estimated... 40?)

I have heard from North over 600 applications, from ALG about 300 applications. The 300 sort of matches other info given over the last 10 days or so that there is about 2 to 3:1 (applicant/seat) ratio.

If I find out more info, I will gladly post it here and good luck to all!

Hmmm. Interesting. Did you actually get this information directly from CCAC? I wonder how many of the applicants had all of their information complied, (ie. were any missing prereqs, etc.). I don't know about your experience, but when I sat down with an advisor at Allegheny back in June, I practically had to pry information out of him. I had all of my prereqs and application materials completed, but it wasn't really through his help.

Also, do any of you know which campus for Spring, (Allegheny or Boyce) is more "popular", (had the most applicants), or which program, Day or Eve./Weekend is more popular? Just curious. My first choice was Allegheny, Eve./Weekend. I had a 3.3 GPA in my college credits, an "A" in A&P1 and 2 and so/so scores on my NET, (75%, I think). What about you all?

My information comes directly from CCAC. I was at North over the summer and got to know most of the players in the decision process. I am now down at Allegheny, I started getting friendly with them from day 1. I have to agree, you have to pry some of the info out of them, then again I have gotten creative on asking my questions. The information I posted came directly from faculty, staff or from the decision makers.

The information I got from the chair over the summer and supported by the secretary (visually seeing all those declined for the fall). Somewhere between 20-30% of all applications are disqualified due to missing or incomplete information. This includes not only the prerequisites, but missing HS transcripts, transfer credits, development tests (if any).

I have mixed reviews on the "popular" campus, early in the summer they mentioned Boyce generally is favored for spring. Early in the fall (just before cutoff) I was told Allegheny was the favored. So, I couldn't say, although my the last rumor (I can't get anyone to confirm) was 2:1 for Allegheny, which would mean 3:1 for Boyce. I did hear that eve/weekend usually fills first and that was from discussions over the summer.

All I can say is more than one told me I was competitive. My stats are previous degree (chemistry) with 3.0 GPA, CCAC GPA of 3.49, B in summer A&P1, NET score of 75 and I have all prerequisites and co-requisites completed, all that I have left are the NRN courses.

Thanks for the info! I figured many applications would be eliminated b/c of incomplete information. I was surprised at how convoluted and complicated the application process was.

We sound like we are in about the same scenario as far as background/GPA. I too have only my nursing classes to take since I took A&P 1 and 2 this summer and am in Micro now, (the other classes I took in either undergrad or graduate school). This is my third go-round at finding my right profession!

Good luck! Just curious, which was your first choice?

I was overly anal over my application after I saw all the rejected applications. When I asked what was the #1 reason for rejection and the answer was incomplete application I knew that was the weakness. I am surprised how secretive they can be over this, I don't get it personally. The numbers are what they are, me as an applicant cannot change it, and there is no other options for a spring entry.

I almost took A&P2 for the summer, but the teacher I had for A&P1 had the bar way too high for summer 1. In hindsight, I think I would have done well, but that would have left me spinning my wheels for 1 class for the fall.

Ironically, this is my 3rd go also, my first career I surrendered for the second which is collapsing.

I took Allegheny as my first, Boyce was second. It was "recommended" that I put a disclaimer that if I met the qualifications, I would accept any seat in any campus at any time. I was told that they usually have open seats at one or more locations because either no one selected it OR a person refused the seat/location. We will see it it means anything.

Good luck to you to, if I hear any other info worthwhile I will post it.

Thanks for all the information dondk!!

I have a 3.8 GPA and I got an A in both A&P1 and A&P2. My score on the NET was either an 83% or 84%, I can't remember. I'm in microbiology right now, so once that is over with I'll just have my nursing classes to focus on. I think that makes me a pretty competitive applicant, but nothing is a sure thing!! Just keeping my fingers crossed and hoping to get into Boyce's evening/weekend program.

Hopefully we hear something soon!! Good luck to everyone! :D

Hello everyone and thank you for your much needed updates for Spring 2010. I too have applied to CCAC and I'm coming all the way from Arizona the waitlist here is unbelievable (2yrs). I'm anxiously waiting for any news from the school as well, you all have been really helpful in sharing your information. On the school's voicemail it says all will be notified by Nov 5th of your status, so just alittle while longer. I'm hoping to be in the runnings with only NRN classes to complete just wanted to say thanks for the info and hope all goes well for everyone. Question tho if one doesn't make it for Spring do you start the process all over again with transcripts and all? Does anyone think maybe there's a better chance at getting in for the Fall session due to more campuses accepting students at that time? Just wondering,thanks
