May 12, '04Occupation: Registered Nurse Joined: May '03; Posts: 937; Likes: 32I just wanted to say that I know how bad it is to wait for a letter that decides the next 2-4 years of your life. I was in the same boat as many of you last year at this time. Hang in there everyone! I'll keep my fingers and toes crossed for you.
May 12, '04Joined: Apr '04; Posts: 7I'm still waiting.. I applied to an accelerated program for Fall... heard in March that I'd been put on their waiting list and now I'm still waiting! I did get a letter the other day saying that they had accepted me to their regular undergrad program, which is good, but means it will take probably a year longer to complete... the accelerated program is 15 months. This means I won't be full time for some of it, and may not be able to get aid some semesters. I really wanted to do it all in one chunk and get it done in 15 months rather than spreading it out so much. And, to make matters worse, almost all the classes I could take in the regular program are already full for summer and fall! I'm glad I got in but just frustrated with the situation.

I want to know EVERYTHING I need to! NOW! NOW!We found out in April for this fall and have already had orientation. The wait was excruciating. My summer and fall plans all hinged on whether I got in or not. I can't believe some people still don't know! Plus, they give you a list of 50 things that you have to get done before the semester starts. Don't they know how anal potential nursing students are? We need to plan, plan, plan!!:angryfire
May 12, '04Joined: May '04; Posts: 153; Likes: 5still waitin here too...i go to a CC and they require an entrance exam (the PAX Exam). There are still two test dates scheduled, one on Friday (the one i'm takin) and one on June 16th, i think. Our school has a good program,but they usually accept everyone that is qualified(high enough GPA and test score,etc.). I did speak to someone in the nursing office who said they might have to enforce a cut off because so many people have applied. I hope not but either way I expect letters at the beginning of July at the earliest. Right now I'm anxious for the test and i KNOW I will be anxious waiting to hear the final word. Good Luck to everyone else that is waiting.

Turns out I'm one of the people that get to spend the Summer in "Limbo" on the Alternate List - so I didn't get to shout for joy being accepted or cry being rejected - just let out sigh and said - more darn waiting...I was curious..how many of you are still waiting for acceptance/denial letters for this fall?
Although I'm happy that there is still a chance a spot will open for me in the Fall - there is a downside to being on alternate status. The students that already know they are in - can spend the Summer searching around for good deals on books, supplies, etc. and be totally prepared once school starts in the Fall. My school told me they pull people off the alternate list right up until the day before classes start. I can't afford to go out and buy all the necessary supplies, uniforms, books, etc. without knowing if I've got a spot - so if I'm selected at the last minute - financially I'll be in quite a bind and rushing around trying to get what I need.
As long as they drag out the admission process, it seems that by this late in the game the people they sent acceptance letters to should have already told them if they will be attending or not - but they've given them a month to get back to them. Honestly, who would go through the very lengthy admission process, get an acceptance letter and then think - hmm, I'll take a month to decide if I want this or not? It would have taken me exactly 5 seconds to call the school and say - count me in for the Fall.
Anyways, I'm hoping if a slot opens up for me - they'll give me enough time to get everything together so I'd be prepared for classes, because I'd want to be very ready for it all. Take Care, SusanNC

I know that I'll have to take out a loan at my out-of-county school, but with my in-county, my Pell Grant will cover everything. I think they do this to torture us....lol
May 13, '04Joined: Aug '01; Posts: 3,725; Likes: 459I'm still waiting. We won't find out till June.
I'm concerned cause my advisor told me not to worry cause as long as my GPA as kept up, I should be ok, but the nursing chair said in orientation that anyone who transfers 50% or more of their nursing courses from another college will get lowest preference, and I did, cause the college I graduated from, doesn't have a BSN program.....
So I guess I'm really in limbo....
This sucks! I will be crushed if I don't get in this fall.....I talked to my English Comp II instructor who told me if I need a letter of recomendation, to ask her, that she would write one for me. I thought that was so sweet..... I may ask!
Wish me luck everyone.....

I tried to make my decision quickly, because I knew that there was someone else waiting to take my place (even though they said they didn't keep waiting lists, they must for when students decide not to attend).As long as they drag out the admission process, it seems that by this late in the game the people they sent acceptance letters to should have already told them if they will be attending or not - but they've given them a month to get back to them.

Are you able to find out where you are on the list? Maybe if they even gave you a general idea, you would be able to plan accordingly, like buying books if you have a good shot at getting in.

I finally broke down and emailed the application coordinator to see when the interview letters would be sent out. She just emailed me back to say that they don't send letters, but do phone calls. So now I have to worry about keeping my cell phone charged and the ringer on since that is the number I gave them. Now I get to obsess about that for 2 more weeks!
