Anyone starting at CLC for Spring of 2010? I just took my NLN and I think I have good score for me to get accepted. I read from earlier post from CLC group and seem great how they got to know each other before the school started

Hi Aileen, did you fill out the application for spring 2010? I just did mine and I hope I wrote everything right. I would hate not being able to get in for technicality. What class are you taking this semester?

ya i filled out the screening form for Spring 2010. i know how you feel about the whole technicality issue... i also had everything looked over by my academic advisor and she said i have everything set and ready to go, all i have to do now is just wait for an acceptance. i have all the courses needed for clc's nursing program done except for Life Span Development and speech (both of which i don't mind taking over summer). what classes do you have this semester?

Good luck to all of you. I am completing my 3rd semester at CLC and it has been a challenge. I am so happy it is almost over.

About the NLN - they typically have 60 slots open per semester. In the past they usually had around 250 applicants and had to eliminate about 190 or so. To do this they use the nationally accepted NLN exam. They take the top 60 and break ties for the last few slots by looking at grades, etc. Each year they looked at only the percentile ranking and each year it has gotten tougher.

Many years ago, they were taking people with something like an 82% ranking. When I got accepted for fall 2008 (graduation Spring 2010), the minimum percentile was either 91% or 92%. I am guessing it is still about 92%, but it depends on the number of applicants. I was lucky, I had an extremely high score and got in the first time.

Oh yeah, definitely apply for scholorships, even if you cannot get financial aid. I did apply and got scholorships all 4 semesters.
