Here's my situation:

I'm 2nd-degree/2nd-life kind of student --I turn 41 in June-- and since I'm single/no-kids, I can move anywhere. Because I can move anywhere and feel that I'm too old to do Waitlist Programs, I've applied to seven "lottery" schools in CA. (And for giggles, I also applied to Boise State)

I just got a status letter form College of San Mateo --97 on their "alternate" list --I feel lnow that I should really apply to more schools, just to improve my chances of getting in somewhere.

Can anybody tell me schools, anywhere, that are still taking applications for Fall 2009?

More info:

My degree from 20yrs ago has a joke of a GPA --I never missed a keg party!-- but now, I have a nice (last 60hr) GPA, especially in my pre-reqs (Microbiology, Nursing Chemistry (hybrid of Org/Inorg), Physio, Anatomy, Nurtrition, Developmental Psych, Statistics). 85 on the TEAS.

I would have applied to UC/CSU schools, but they wanted too high of a total GPA, and I way missed the deadlines.

Online programs and I do not get along, btw.

I know that in many ways we're in competition with each other to get into a school, but maybe you can tell me about programs you're not applying to.

Thanks!

hi rusty...

try CSU Bakersfield... I think their deadline is April 30th. They have the 2 yr accelerated BSN i think... i was looking last night because one of the schools i've applied for is not going through... i've applied to Nevada State College, which has accelerated BSN for one year... you should go to their website... coz even their regular track nursing is shorter than most programs... their deadlines have passed but you can apply for spring... i've calculated the total living costs and tuition and it turned out that they would still be cheaper than going to a private school here in cali... hope this helps..

Does Pace have an accelerated 2nd degree? I've only seen that they have a combined BSN/MSN which requires a GRE. I haven't taken the GREs...

Delta College in Stockton is taking applications ONLY April 20-24. They changed their whole application process. You get ranked...and it's based on a formula with your GPA, English grade, sciences, and Nutrition. They changed their process, so check out their website. http://www.deltacollege.edu/div/hs/adnhome.html

Good luck!
