I guess I am very lucky because taking classes and when to take them were never a problem. Lottery? Never heard of it. I took A&P, Micro and Chem the first semester! I had a 3.8GPA and did not have a problem with my nursing courses. Everyday was a challenge and sometimes a struggle but I made it through. Oh, by the way that was 27 years ago! I couldn't do what you all have to do today, very stressful and depressing I'm sure. My hat goes off to all of you that do this day in and day out. I think this system is just a way for the programs to weed out the weak. Good luck to all of you and HURRY UP WE NEED YOU!!!!!!! Mike

After other people gave up, I just kept going to class until they let me in. So many people drop that persistance can pay off.
California just passed a bond issue to build more schools. But what we really need is more instructors and pre-req sections. I wish they'd put more money into that.
What school are the Southern California students in. I am in Southern California and I need to start my pre-reqs but I am in a CNA class right now so my days are used up. I am hoping to start pre-reqs around fall or winter this year.
I am so ready to go to nursing school so I an dreading the pre-reqs. I am thinking of doing a ROP vocational or private school for my LVN.
