I Got into Roxbury Community College!

Posted

Unfortunatly I won't be able to go cause it is the full time program. I only applied to see what my chances would be but I almost cried when I saw the acceptance letter. I work 40 hrs a week and I can't afford to cut my hours so I am still hoping I get into BHCC weekend or evening program. RCC will be accepting apps for their part time program in October so I will have to reapply if I don't get into Bunker Hil, but no gaurantee I'll get in againl. I am so stressed about this! Anyways just wanted to let folks know if your GPA is not that high don't worry there is still a chance for you. My GPA is a 3.2 and I got into a competitive program. I do have all my ore reqs done and that may have helped. Let's hope BHCC gives me a chance as well.

The evening program for RCC is actually full-time as well and they do advise you not to work 40 hours while in the program.

Really? I thought it was only three nights a week in the evening. Wow I really need to make a tough decision here. Walking away from my job will be tough especially I don't have any support. I'm calling RCC to find out the schedule. Surely there must be some flexibility.

For me so far:

Tuesdays are lecture from 4:00-6:30pm (sometimes they run later than that)

Wednesdays are clinical days from 4:00pm-10:00pm

Thursdays will be lab/clinical from 4:00pm-7:30pm (lab) or clinical from 4:00-10:00pm.

I was working 40 hours before too but it got to the point where I was so exhausted that I had to cut back...it is do-able...but can be very tiring. =(

CONGRATSSSSSSSSSSSS, Ellis02136!!

Wow sounds like a lot of work. What were you doing for work and how many hours did you go down to? If I don't get into Bhcc then I will need to reapply to RCC for the evening program because I really cannot afford to leave my job right now. I called the nursing Dept and she said if most of my general courses are done then I will probably be in classes from 9 to 12 or 2 four days a week. I only have the nursing classes to do so I really don't know if it will take too many hours. Maybe I can work 1 to 5 if my boss allows it.

congrats on getting into the nursing program, that it is awesome! :nurse: one question though, how did you do on your teas test? just wondering since i will be applying to the night program. good luck!

I don't attend either of the schools talked about in this post, but I just wanted to give my 2 cents.

I'm going into my last semester of nursing school and I have continued to work 40 hours a week the entire time I have been in school. I know it's not something everyone can do, but it can be done. I won't say that there are times I have been completely exhausted, but I know that when I graduate in December, it will all have been worth it!

It just takes determination and the will power to believe in yourself and knowing what you can do. IT CAN BE DONE :)

Good luck with your decision!

i dont remember the exact scores in the science and math but they were high i think 90 in math and 88 in science. my reading 81 and english 80. i think they really look at the teas scores. i also completed all co reqs and pre reqs which most likely worked in my favor.

What is your profession? My issue is I work 9 to 5 in a business setting so it will be tough to request to get out early for classes. I will have to make up the hours during the week. Not sure how my boss will view that.
