    @Gradius- What other reasons can they have for not letting you in the program? I saw on ''my documents'' that they did receive the 53$, Nursing application, and consent form but it states that they have Not received my HCC application, High school transcript and my Nursing Pre-reqs. Is this normal?
    I was denied since they didn't receive all required documentation, let's just say that. This cycle I'll be applying to both HCC, as well as 3 ABSN programs within FL. HCC will be my fallback if I don't get into an ABSN program somewhere, I'm thinking. But we shall see, trying to keep all my options open since before, HCC for Spring 2013 was the only school I applied to.

    And Nina not to worry, same thing happened with me. Our Spring deadline was June 1. I want to say the 3 "received" items you mentioned there were marked received before June even ended; everything else showed up in August. I want to say I got my decision letter 9/17.

    So if you want to mirror that for the Fall group, everything else probably won't show up until April, with acceptance/denial letters going out in May 2013 or so if I had to guess. Look at the Fall 2012 thread if you want to get specific on dates.

    If you, or anyone else, have any other questions I can answer based on my prior experience in applying, feel free to ask.

    Wow, I can't believe it takes that long for them to get all the info together. I think it is crazy I won't get a letter until May. I have recently applied and I see they received my check and app also. I guess I should stop watching for others to arrive in the received area. Thanks for all the information, it helps to keep me from stressing about where everything is.

    As long as you have over 3.5 you should be fine.

    Alismami, I turned in my app on Dec 12 and all of documents have shown up as received. In webadvisor, go into my documents. Everything is listed there. The school is closed from the Dec 19-Jan 2, so it may not show up until after the holidays. Also in Progress toward degree they it will show up as Applicant ADN. I'm excited too, wish it didn't take so long to find out. Good luck to everybody!!!

    Hey All,I submitted my app 12/14/12. It just posted as recieved last week and I'm starting to become anxious. My gpa is 3.67 and I'm not sure how to feel about it. I seem to be getting conflicting info on cutoffs. If anyone hears anything please update me : ) I hope we all get to see each other in orientation. Good Luck everybody.

    I browsed the thread for fall 2012 and seen they started receiving letters towards the end of march. Lordy.... The waiting stinks! They also had folks with 3.8 gpa getting alternate seats but then others with a 3.6 accepted??? Any idea how that would happen?

    @tysmom from what I remember the advisor telling me even though your gpa is a big part of it, it sometimes doesn't determine your final position. Some people only complete the req. Prereqs and dont complete the generals so if they have to break the tie with someone in your same gpa range they most likely will pick the person who have completed prereqs and generals. She said it is done this way because you are more likely to finish nursing school easier without having to take your generals on top of the nursing courses. I'm sure people get accepted with just prereqs but it is highly competitive so your better off completing your generals to. I hope I didn't confuse you.
