    The 24 seat difference for Spring is that there are no EVE/WE starts in Spring. You will only have the option of DAY school.

    Ok looking back at previous threads for people applying for spring term it looks like they got their acceptance/denial letters in October, Spring 08 got theirs on October 22! I really hope that is the case this year because that is next week and I definitely cannot wait all the way to November to know if I am accepted or not! I want to know NOW!

    Yea they say 8 weeks but am praying they give it to us sooner. My cousin started in Spring 2008 and they received their letters around October 22! I am applying with 202.28 points hope that is enough, I actually dreamed last night that I received my letter lol

    How many points are you applying with tmooney?
  7. by   RNMee
    196.2.....Very close to the cutoff I imagine. Could go either way. I dream I calculated my points wrong, lol. Here's to hoping Also, I started a thread about car pooling. I live in JAX beach so you gals with over 200 ( a shoe in) let me know if anyone is interested. If I get in , of course.

    Not to rain on your anxious parade.....but, for this past summer (my class) and fall, they waited the FULL 8 weeks before mailing out the acceptance letters. Even knowing this, I bet ya'll babysit your mailboxes until then! (We all did! LOL!)

    When I applied I had 217 pts. Pretty much a shoe-in, but I hated the wait anyway! The entrance is getting more competitive with each subsequent semester, but I think 196 should make the cut.

    Good luck to all of you! (I won't see you because I am Eve/WE and we hang our hats at the Deerfield Campus.):spin:

    That maybe true but with us applying for Spring start I believe they will give letters out early because of all the holidays coming up in the next month... We will see and I know they made you guys wait the whole 8 weeks because I have several friends who were accepted in Summer and Fall 2009. lol I am going to be optimistic about the situation and hope they send them out early because I will be in Paris for the Holidays! I believe 196 will be fine! I think that should be around the cutoff especially since I heard a lot of people had applied with over 200! We will see, I just hope we have a definite answer before Thanksgiving, preferably Halloween lol!

    Ahhhh, the power of positive thinking! (or not! )

    The truth is that the department is under transition. There were many reasons that they took the full 8 weeks. Many of those reasons still exist.

    I am more than confident that you would be more likely to get it LATE because of holidays, not early.

    Good luck to you.

    You are so right Flmomof5, I won't hold breath on getting our letters next week, although that would be nice. I wonder what's taking them so long to transition, does it really take 3 semesters for them to transition? Prior to Summer 09 everyone got their acceptance letters within 3 weeks. If they need any administrative help to further long the process I would happily accept the job since I am currently unemployed and living off the measly weekly benefits I receive from unemployment lol. Heck I would even do it for minimum wage lol. Our official 8 weeks will be the week of Thanksgivings so hopefully we should get word by then. In the mean time I guess I can bore myself to death until it comes in the mail since NO ONE is hiring and I have finish all of my classes online this semester. Anyways how is your second term going for you? Hope all is well!

    Continue to patiently Wait,

    TOOO Funny! I wanted to offer the same assistance! Like you, I was unemployed during that waiting period. I would have done anything to help speed up the process!

    Well, during the 1st 8 wks of 2nd term you do a 1 CR online Leadership in Nursing course. Fairly easy, just a nuisance. At the same time we had Psych Nursing. Love the teacher! We have to take our final on Monday and the HESI (for Psych) on Wed and we are done with those. Then it will be 8 weeks of Adult Health I. From what I have heard, those of us in EVE/WE, we will do one eve per week for class and clinicals every sat and sun. The issue for me is that I am back to work and I work full-time. That means that except for Thanksgiving day, I will not have a day off for 8 weeks! It's gonna be a bit rough!
