    No wait lists for us. There is one school south of us that puts everyone with all of their prereqs complete at 3.0 or higher GPA into a hat and literally pulls like a lottery for their seats. People who have no chance of getting in anywhere else try there so their numbers are something like 1000 people for 100 seats. Sad situation.

    I read in a school newsletter that over 800 people applied for 150 available seats in the Spring 2007 entering class, 70 of those seats being nursing, so I'm not sure how many people specifically applied for nursing.

    In-district 133 for 68 spots
    Out-of-district 174 for 22 spots
    About 60 people were disqualified immediately for not including transcripts/or appropriate residency documentation with their applications.

    I dont know about how many seats were open. But one college I applied to, it was RIDICULOUSLY easy to get into. I applied to Barnes College of Nursing in Oct of 05' and the said I couldnt start until Fall of 07. So around April I decided to apply a few other places. I applied at Chamberlain College of Nursing (formerly Deaconess) on a Monday afternoon. They called me Tues morning and told me I could start in July. It was INSANE, of course I was thrilled, then I found out the price; 45 grand a year. NO WAY JOSE. I ended up a Barnes and am happy with the choice. I hope that helped a little bit, even if there are no numbers.

    500 applicants for 50 spots (it's a CC in California).
    Apparently the competition is getting harder and harder...
