    Now if only we could get people applying to get on this forum so we can see what we're up against! Lol. Maybe there won't be a whole lot of applicants and we'll all just get accepted without any issues.

    Yeah, that'll happen! lol. How is your pre-req gpa? Are you concerned, or just impatient (like me!! )?

    If I've calculated everything right...I've got a 3.67, so I'm pretty confident I'll be accepted. I've selected SouthShore as my first choice and from what I've seen, that's not people's first choice so I'm hoping I'll be in and at the campus I want to be at with no problems. I'm extremely impatient about this process, though! I certainly won't deny that.

    Myself and 2 of the gals I went to some pre-req classes are also hoping for SS, but you are right about being the minority. Reading about the np1 teacher on rate my professor is kind of scary, but talking with SS students, it is a completly different story - they love their teachers, it's just a lot of work. I can't wait!!

    I can't wait either! I've heard some horror stories, lol but I think we'll be okay! I'm just ready for March to get here so we can get those letters! According to previous classes, they start coming out in mid-March, I think...so only 2 more months!

    hey folks... when you are in webadvisor under transcript... is that the correct GPA? also, it seems they only have (1) of my 5 transcripts on file.

    Your acceptance into the program is only based on your pre-req GPA, so if the courses listed on your transcript are ONLY your pre-reqs, then yes. But if you're like me, my transcript through HCC has all of my courses I've ever taken, so I have to calculate my GPA manually.

    As for your transcripts, go into student services and ask them to evaluate all of the transcripts that you've submitted to the college. I've been at HCC for a year and they just evaluated all of mine within the last 3 months or so. And that only happened because I went and met with an advisor about something else and she just happened to see that they hadn't reviewed my transcripts from other colleges.

    Yep, what she said. Also, choose your time/day/campus to meet an adviser carefully. Very first thing in the AM, Fridays, or the SS campus are quickest. Otherwise, be prepared to wait. Good luck.

    I checked my documents and nothings there except financial aid ofcourse... Did I have to go change my program study before applying? Because last year they said no just change it to AA Premed until you are accepted and then change it to ADN

    You don't need to change it, it will do it automatically. If you go to the Progress toward Degree area, do you see Applicant/ADN? I saw that before I saw documents. When did you send your app in? I wonder if they just got a whole bunch and if you sent it closer to the deadline, maybe they are still processing?

    Thanks. Yeah I dropped it off on the 14th and there were other applications in the box as well. I dont see Applicant/ADN when I click Progress Toward Degree. I didnt know they started processing applications as soon as they were recieved like they did with yalls so thats why I was worried that my account didnt say anything. Hopefully it changes soon

    I mailed mine a few weeks before the deadline, and it took them a couple days after deadline to get it done. I imagine they are just doing it as they were received.

    ohh yeah that would make sense
