    I'll let you know if they tell me anything tomorrow, if I go there. My hubby just informed me he needs to take my car, and his car doesn't have seats for my kids. If he's not gone all day, I'll head over there at some point and ask what's up. I might even try to call, but in the past, all I ever get is a vmail.

    You're GPA would give you about 8 pts, and if you're a Broward resident, add another point for 9.

    It looks like the cutoff was right around 9, but my friend had 8 and was put on the alternate list. She was told more than likely she'd be in (all the alternates were told this). She was going to double check today. I'd say you have a good shot.

    I got a response from my financial aid contact who heard back from Twana that everything will be fine with registration, not to worry. I hope you see this note before you go trudging over there today.

    everytime i call broward they tell me something different regarding the nursing program. i did not get into the program because of my stupid c dragging me down! also how do they calculate the labs vs. classes?

    please help me to clarify:

    these are my grades:

    a&p 1 c
    a&p l b eliminate- does not count
    a&p 2 b
    a&p l b eliminate- does not count
    chm b
    enc b

    i want to retake a&p 1 - i am told it must be taken at a private college, not (public) such as fiu which someone indicated they did on this board.
    what is correct?

    i was also told that taking another chemistry class would help my grade, and microbiology does not help unless there is a tie.

    please help!
    bc does not calulate the labs into the gpa if that was the case i would have started the program in may. you do not have to go to a private college but you can go to a public university, such as fiu like i did/am doing now. in spring of 09 i re-took a&p1 and now in the summer i am re-taking chemistry, which bc also accepts and you can take another chemistry but i not going to take organic chem (that my personal thing)

    Thanks for the input Faith8_88, Im sorry to hear you did not get into the program.
    I tried to transfer to FIU, just as you did, and that is when I received an email saying it was not possible to retake A&P 1 at FIU.

    Did you already get your grade at FIU? Was it accepted at BC? Who did you speak to at BC that said it was OK? I am waiting for a response back from Chinara ~ advisor on North Campus in the Health Services Department, But the Dean of Health and Sciences said it must be repeated at a private institution....although he didn't know at first...and had to ask the advisor who sent me the email to why she was denying my transient student request.

    I have spoken to so many people at the campus and on the phone, north and central, and they all say different things.....

    When I had retaken A&P1 I currently had a C but when I had retaken it I received an A. BC health admissions office told me they will accpet it which they did when I applied for Fall 09, my pts went from a 2 to a 7 (a big change) and b/c I am retaking chem I will most likely recieve a B which will really boost my points up. But as far as speaking with a dean I did not do that I just transfered to FIU for 2 semesters to boost my GPA to return to BC. I might apply to FIU nursing program but they next enrollment for generic bsn is next may, to long of a wait.

    Faith,

    I am sorry to say but they DO calculate the labs into the GPA. My program GPA is 3.57, and if the labs were not counted, my program GPA would have been just 3.5.

    The process of figuring out program GPA's was explained to me by current nursing students, and what I previously posted before is the correct way to figure out your program GPA. That being said, the labs aren't weighted as heavily as the lecture classes because they are only one credit hour. As you can see from my GPA example, the labs only raised my GPA .07 which isn't very much.

    Boda-

    I don't know if there are supposed to be two Pharm classes at North or not, but there is another one. The reference number of the class that is full says there is only 1 seat and that 1 seat is filled.
