    Great Thanks guys!

    Im in touch with the nursing admissions office Glad you found the link k.2012. I have only been in FL for a couple months so the more info the better!
    Sorry that's all the info I can give on it! Hopefully an advisor helps clear everything up.

    I got As in the last prereqs I needed so I will be applying with a 3.52, which I know thats an alternate level gpa but Im proud of myself for working so hard. I wish I could change something to have a higher gpa, but I cant. So I guess Ill start on the application process, Im praying I get accepted or an alternate or just a left over seat IDC ill take it with my gpa!

    I'll be dropping off my application today!! So excited. I transferred in some classes that were on trimesters so I have some odd credit hours, but if I've calculated properly I should have a 3.89 GPA.

    As for retaking the class issue previously discussed, any class you retake that you have received a C or better in will not count EVEN for classes that were transferred in from other institutions. This is a Florida Law and it's not just HCC. I came from Wisconsin and almost found this out the hard way. I know of people that took Sociology 20 years ago that can't get rid of a C they got in it back then. Pretty odd if you ask me, but that is Florida Law for you.

    Good luck to everyone else submitting their applications and Happy Holidays!!

    I sent my application in the mail on Tuesday (I waited ALL DAY for the mailman on Monday! lol.). Now I wait.

    Woohoo!! The wait is going to be the death of me yet!!! I know the campuses aren't even open and I'm STILL checking my bank account to see if my check for the application fee has been cashed, lol.

    Just an observation I've made since the update thing that allnurses did...umm, didn't we have some more replies to this discussion?! I feel like we're missing some posts on here...lol.

    I don't remember any that aren't here, maybe they just made it more per page?
    Which campus are you hoping for? Days/nights?

    It will be cool if we are able to "make friends" on here like the other semesters have, and we know who to look for at orientation!

    I know there were a few replies I made that I haven't seen...I checked out allnurses 'glitch' forum and it said that quite a few discussion replies were lost. I can't seem to remember what my replies were, so obviously not important lol.

    I'm hoping for SouthShore days. What about you? I'm hoping this forum will start getting a little more active so we can "make friends". I know all of those other semesters try to meet up at orientation, we'll have to figure out how to set it up to do that! It would be nice to meet everyone face-to-face after going through the whole waiting process together.

    I'm going for SS days too!!! I took a few classes there - A&P 1 and 2, dev. psych, math. I live closer to Brandon, but I really like the SS campus.
  9. by   k.2012
    Ahhh, cool! SS seems like it's at the bottom of the list for priority. Exciting to know someone else will be trying to get there in there. I live in Manatee county, but SS is actually REALLY convenient for me. It's a 15-20 minute drive on the interstate and I can get to SS faster than I can the community college here by me. Plus, I really like the close-knit atmosphere at SS, seems less intimidating!! Lol. I tried taking a class at Brandon in the fall, but hated everything about it...the class, the drive to Brandon, and the madness at the Brandon campus! I've taken classes at SS all year...AP1 and 2, micro, and sociology. I'm going to be taking nutrition and english 2 online for the spring to get those 'supplemental' courses out of the way and to keep myself busy while waiting on that letter!!

    Who did you have for AP and Micro? I had Jaudon for AP both, and Larach for Micro. This semester I'll be taking the rest of the classes for my AA-Liberal Arts: English 2, Astronomy, Connections, computers, and college success. If you aren't set on nutrition, I took Dev Psych with Rivera at SS during summer, and he was awesome.
  11. by   k.2012
    I had Worley for AP and Taylor for micro. Loved them both! I think I'm pretty set on nutrition but I'll keep that in mind because I'm planning on taking dev psych sometime in the near future...maybe over the summer if things aren't too hectic. I recently found out I've got a few health issues that will require some reconstruction in my diet so I'm using it for degree credits and my own personal health, lol.

    left with a backpack, traveled 3000+ miles, and lived off minimum wage for a year (residency)... for Hillsborough. i hope they calculate my GPA correctly... 3.81. I have a Bachelor in another field and my GPA was under 2.5 (LoL~!) so my options are LIMITED to ONLY HCC.
  13. by   k.2012
    I have faith that you'll get in. And if they don't calculate your GPA correctly, appeal appeal appeal! Never know what kind of mistakes get made while they're going through all of those applications! I'm in the same boat though, HCC is really my only hope because I refuse to go to any of those 'private' institutions (Keiser, Galen, Sanford Brown, etc)! Lol.
