Oh, yes, I'm STILL waiting...in fact, I called the advisor's office today to find out when the letters had been mailed. I assumed they HAD been mailed, because on our applications it says you can expect a reply within 6 to 8 weeks from the application deadline, which was June 1st. Yesterday was the start of week 8, and still no letter.
Well, according to the person I finally reached after running into two different voice mails ("leave us a message and we'll return your call by the end of business today") and a returned "due to fatal error" email to the nursing advisor, the letters HAVEN'T EVEN BEEN MAILED YET! She said they probably won't go out til Friday the 1st, or Monday the 4th. When I asked her why the propaganda we've been given says "allow 6 to 8 weeks", she said, oh, we assume 4 week months, so that would mean August 1st would be the "8th week" (2nd month) mailing date. That leaves just four weeks to get all the physicals, books, supplies, uniforms measured and ordered, etc. since classes start 2 September. For those of us who work fulltime, this is going to be a challenge. I also wanted to give at least four weeks notice at my job, since I've been here for ten years, but that probably isn't going to work out...I do plan on taking at least one week vacation between leaving this job and school starting, since it will be a long 16 months before I have that chance again!
So, here I sit...still waiting for my letter. And, I'm just going on the assumption that my GPA and test scores have given me enough points to be accepted this time...the person I spoke with said she had over 1,000 letters to mail out this time (although I think that is for both the RN & LPN programs, both acceptance and rejection letters) and I know there are only 120 slots for the RN program. I guess there isn't much I can do but continue to wait...as patiently as possible. But its not easy...
Sorry this is so long, but I'm having a crappy day here at work, plus my car A/C died this a.m. (not a good thing in Florida in July)! Your post just gave me the chance to vent and get this off my chest. Hope your letter comes soon!
