Hey there! Finally a post from someone else applying to GCC in CA! lol! Last week I received a letter in the mail to submit my TEAS V score or schedule to take the test on campus later this month. I think that's a positive sign that I got through the first hoop to get into the lottery. Have you taken your TEAS yet?
I got my letter yesterday. I didn't make the cut Good luck to you!
Thank you, sr20alex! I'm sorry to hear that about GCC (I know what getting that letter is like, I've been there too with other programs), but there are lots of schools, so hang in there and keep trying!
Yes, hang in there. Ive been trying for a while to get into a program and have received my share of denials (even with good grades).
I haven't heard anything from them yet except for a call requesting my teas V.
Did you apply to Pierce College in LA as well? I just received an email from them that they will notify applicants in May.
I didn't apply to Pierce , I don't have lifespan psychology yet. But I did apply to College of the Desert all the way out near Palm Springs. I really don't want to move out there so GCC is obviously my first choice.

I hear ya, I applied to Citrus College in Glendora, keeping my options open, but it is not my ideal location. I hope it works out for you and you get in to GCC! From what I have seen, I think GCC and Pierce have 2 of the nicest campuses.

I am applying to citrus too, do you know how they do their selection process?
Have you submitted your application yet? They use a point system for their selection (I think they only take 20 something students). When I met with the counselor the other week I asked if they had 500+applicants like other programs and she said no, its more like 250 or 300 applicants. Which is still a lot. I believe the point system is out of 100 pts. and the counselor told me the highest she had seen so far was like 78 or 80 and that was someone who had a 4.0 in all undergrad, not just pre-reqs (which is pretty rare).
I got 61 points because they didn't accept my healthcare experience because my last position was as a Health Science Research Associate and didn't really involve direct patient care (even though I had been a medical assistant for years prior to that)...so kinda bummed about that.
The only other thing is they don't take any previous TEAS V scores. So if you get accepted you have to take the TEAS V AGAIN at their school. But have to keep an open mind and just apply!

I am in GCCs program if anyone has any questions.
Would you happen to know about how many students they are accepting?
Thanks SoCalCrystal! When did you start the program at GCC? How are you liking it? I am waiting to hear if I've been accepted for fall 2013.

40 per cohort usually with 5 or 6 alternates
I was spring 2012 cohort and I graduate this December. I was actually accepted at other programs and decided on GCC after attending orientatioms at all of them. I absolutely love the program, instructors amd clinical experience. I feel like they do a wonderful job at preparing you for NCLEX and help with job placememt after graduation.
I just called GCC today and they said they will notify of acceptance sometime in May...not too far away!
