    Hi Chelle and everyone!

    I've been a lurkin too and feel happy to have found this wonderful family :-) I just started my prereqs too and hope to start nursing in the Fall of 2003. Most schools here are by lottery (junior colleges). State schools are by GPA. I have heard of a couple juniour colleges that are first come first serve though. Anyone else from CA?

    Glad to know y'all

    I think the lottery system stinks! How unfair! It seems that the people with the best grades would be the most qualified! In WA our community college goes by a point system based on gpa and experience in health care system. For instance, if you have worked as a dental asst. you get 9 points towards entrance or if you have been an emt or lpn you get 12 points, ect.

    I have been a lurker myself and decided it was time to post. I have finished my first quarter of nursing school and start second quarter in the fall. Very excited because we will be working in a hospital instead of the nursing home.

    I have seen a few posts from TN. I grew up in Chattanooga and love seeing where people are from.
