need advice - on waiting list for ncc nursing program - again!

  1. So I applied to the nursing program at Norwalk Community College for 2012. I got put on the waiting list for Jan 2012. This is my second time on the list and I feel like I have a very slim chance of getting in. As of right now I'm #7. I have until Jan for them to offer me a spot. I'm married and have a 5 year old daughter which makes it a bit challenging applying to anywhere else because of the commute...Not sure what to do if i dont get accepted again. I also don't want to spend years reapplying and waiting because eventually I do want to have another child (ideally not too far apart from my first), and don't want to have a newborn while i'm in the program...Any advice? I'm so desperate to get in and start my career, i hate the wait Thanks in advance for the advice!

    you need to meet with your advisor and find out what needs to be done to make you more competititive in the application process

    I did speak with him and he said if I don't get in for January I can reapply for Fall 2013..and IF i dont get in again, I can go for my LPN which would take about 1 year (program starts jan'14) then i can do the bridge program at NCC, but i would still need to apply and there is no guarantee for a by then it would be 2 years down the line and i would just be starting the program...didn't make too much sense to me. The other option he gave would be reatkig my TEAS and getting a better score.
