CCBC - N/W Fall 2012 Applicants

  1. Hello Everyone,

    I am applying to the CCBC Essex nights and weekends program for the fall of 2012. I am hearing all the stories about those either getting in or rejected for the Spring day program. Wanted to maybe start a thread for those whole applying with me and maybe relate to my anxiety! LOL

    OOOH! OOOH! ME! ME! I can relate to your anxiety! I am also applying for the night and weekend RN program at Essex (for Fall of 2012). I have heard sooo many stories about people with 3.8GPA's who have completed all their sciences being turned away while others with lower GPA's get accepted. From what I've heard there isn't a whole lot of rhyme or reason as to who gets in and who gets rejected. It's all hear say though. I don't even like listening to's too nerve wracking! I'm just going to keep applying until I get in :0)

    I have heard the stories too. Although I haven't heard anyone with a 3.8 getting turned down. Of course like you said its all hear say. You never know someone's true GPA. And there are 2 GPAs they go by. Have you applied before? What's your GPA if you don't mind me asking? Have you taken your teas? Are you finished all your pre reqs?

    I'm Greg btw.

    No I haven't applied before. This will be the first time for me. I am scheduled to take the TEAS some time in December. Right now my GPA is 3.5 It's ok I guess. I've gotten all A's and a couple B's in everything so far except for the math - only got a C. I am retaking it next semester though. All of my pre reqs are finished - EXCEPT I will be in BIOL221 when I apply.

    Are all of your pre reqs done?? What is your GPA if I can ask? Have you already applied? I'm just curious... it just seems like there are so many variables between GPA's, pre reqs being finished or not, TEAS scores, ect..

    I'm Lauri :0)

    I'm finishing up micro right now. My two GPAs are 3.83 and 3.81. I took the teas and got a 74.7/proficient. I have all As in my science classes and two Bs in my English classes that I took in '94. I heard about all the variables. I can't believe we have to wait all the way tilley to find out. What are you in this semester? And this is also my first time applying.

    Well to give you an idea. I had all my general requirements finished a while back. The I started the summer of 2010 and took Bio 110. Then in the fall I took A&P I with Psych 101. Winter I took Sociology. Then in the Spring I took A&P II. Then this past summer I took Psych Human Growth and Development. And now I am taking Micro and will be finished in two weeks. Hope that helps. So CSU? Coppin? And FYI, I took all my pre reqs at Essex, Dundulk and online.

    Sorry - it's been a while since I've been on here. I took MEISE - who did you take? - Micro was awesome - Got an A! How did you do? And I just took the TEAS last week. Oddly enough I did really good in the science section and just so so in the others. I'll probably retake it to see if I can get a higher score. Do you think the TEAS test is a big factor that weighs in on your acceptance or not?? Or do you think they look more at your grades???? It kind of doesn't make sense to take all the pre-reqs then have to take the TEAS on top of everything else you already did when they can see the grades you received in these subjects.

    Hey, I was in Meise's class too. Did you happen to sit on the right hand side against the wall, wear glasses? I got an A in the class too, a 102%. That class rocked. So what did you get on the teas? I got a 74.7 and I'm trying to decide now whether or not to take them over. At the moment I'm thinking of not retaking them. I have a 3.8 so I think it may be good enough. What do you think? I believe that they evaluate us as 1/3 teas and 2/3 grades. And they especially look at the science classes.
