    Too true! If there had been a fan above me when I got my letter, the scene would have been quite similar!

    I got my acceptance letter last Wednesday. My mom had texted me that my letter had arrived and I immediately left my apartment to head over. The whole way there I had a million thoughts racing through my mind, such as: what if I didn't get in? I didn't get in. Will I survive if I get in?- it was the most nauseating moment. When I got there I picked up the letter (I noticed it was thick and that was a good indicator) and said to my mom: "Ok, moment of truth." I ripped open the letter and the first thing I read was "Congratulations!!" I screamed so loud, threw my my letters in the air, jumped up and down and screamed "I GOT IN! I GOT IN!" and then I started crying. My poor brother was taking a nap and bolted down the stairs freaking out because he thought someone was robbing us when he heard me screaming. lol It was honestly the best day of my entire life. I was never a good student and even flunked out of my sophomore year of college but I soon learned that it wasn't because I wasn't smart, I just wasn't applying myself. Over the last year I have busted my butt and raised my GPA from a 1.2 to a 3.5. I also discovered that my financial aid was getting revoked soon so something needed to happen fast. The moment I read that letter was incredible. I have never been happier. This is what I'm meant to do. For all of those who got in: Congratulations! For those who are trying to get in: It's rough but STUDY and READ! For those who didn't get in: DON'T give up! My friend is about to graduate nursing school and it took her two tries to get in and I am 100% certain that she will make an amazing nurse.

    I got my letter on Friday the 13th (of Jan. 2012). It was my last chance to apply for the program that I not only worked my butt off for but also it was my last chance to stay at the university I wanted (I would have had to go to the tech school across the street to get my associates and then come back to the university to get my bachelors, wayy more work and time). When I got the letter my hands were shaking SO hard. I sprinted up my drive way and ripped it open the second I got in the door. I started sobbing when I saw the congratulations. So much stress and worrying was finally over. I called my mom at work and she must have thought I was crazy I was crying so much! Getting in was the biggest relief ever and I am so excited to be in my first semester!

    I got my acceptance letter today! I opened the packet and literally jumped off the couch and tackled my children that were playing on the floor in front of me. Im a single mother of 3 kids and about 8 months pregnant with my 4th. I studied my butt off for my PSB-NAT and took a pay cut and switched to a different job to allow schedule flexibility for the program and clinicals. I already have an AA premed and an AS in histologic technologies so all of my pre reqs and gen eds are completed. This was my first attempt at applying to the program and everyone I knew had been wait listed. I cried and my kids thought I was nuts. My seven year old son just smiled and said, "I knew u would mommy." I called everyone I could think of, posted it to my facebook, and even called my ex mother in law lol. Im still elated

    I applied at two schools. I got a skiny letter from one school, and it was a denial. I missed it by just a few points. I cried for a few minutes and decided there would be no more tears. A few weeks later I knew what day the second schools letter was coming and I was stalking the mail man. I was 95% sure I wasn't getting in, because I made a 92 on the entrance exam and had heard a rumor that you don't get in unless you make 94 or higher. Well me letter was thick. I opened it in the driveway and read the first sentence!! I screamed and ran inside to tell my husband!! I got the letter in July and I start in January. I'm beyond excited but now that its getting closer I am so scared/nervous!
