Hi I applied to Cape Fear's Program for August 2012 term. I know that the application deadline just recently ended, however, I was just wondering if anyone had heard any news through the grapevine about applicant pool/point count?

Hello! I applied for the 2012 program at CFCC. I actually was accepted for last year and made it about 9 weeks into the program before I had to drop for childcare reasons. It is a LOT of work but I met some of the best people during my short time there. How did you do on the PSB? I did alright last year, when I did get in, but I retook the PSB and scored much higher this time around.

Hi I did ok on the PSB high 90's in every area except spelling-50 and math-85. I have all the prereqs but the second anatomy and micro. I have A's in everything and attended the information session. I think my point count is around 340. Do you think I have a chance??? Thanks for responding.

Well I got in last year with a 339 point count, so I definitely think you have a chance! I can't guarantee it, because obviously the applicant pool changes each year, but you are definitely in the running. I know I was close to the bottom of the list but they also send letters to 20 alternates. There was a girl in my class last semester who was alternate #18, so I think pretty much all of the alternates got in. This year I have a 370ish point count so I'm feeling pretty confident. If I recall correctly, I got my acceptance letter last year about the third to last week of March, so still a ways to wait.. I know it seems like an eternity! :)

Yes it does seem like an eternity, I just want to know because I want it so bad. I really appreciate you getting back to me and the words of encouragement. If you hear anything about the applicant pool please keep me posted and I'll do the same, although I think your pretty much good :yeah:

I've applied to it also and am trying to wait patiently but can only wait so long. Does anyone know when the point reviews are?

If I recall correctly, I believe it was sometime in mid to late February last year, so it should be coming up pretty soon! :) How did you do on the PSB?

I did well on all except the spelling, five 99's one 93 and then a 38 in spelling. That spelling killed my score.

For people that have gone through the point count at Cape Fear before, do they give you an idea of where you sit or any information at all?

They don't give you any info one way or another, they say that the applicant pool changes every year and won't say where your points stand. But within about a week they mail out the letters.
