    Hey Drea!!
    Thanks for the update and all of that info.

    I have micro and A and P 1 complete. Currently finishing A and P 2 and english 102.

    Do we really have to wait until June to hear something???? That seems like such a long time. I heard mid May as well so hopefully thats it.

    I will be working part time (as long as I get in!!!). I definitely could not afford to go MC's program is just so good at such a low price.

    I also have my math foundation complete.

    Also....I spoke to the office yesterday as well. They definitely said mid June but Im wondering if they don't tell students a later date so they don't get huffy when they are waiting. But who knows?? UGH SUCH A LONG TIME!!!

    redmonds12, so you are on the college math level, and have english foundation (en101), I'm assuming BI107 which are the prereqs, then you have bi204, a priority course and a math110 or higher done. The en102 and bi205 are the last two priority courses. The micro doesnt count in either of those catagories, but is good to have out of the way! Because you are currently talking the en102 and bi205, they will only count you at 2/4 priority courses. Im not sure if that was all clear to you prior to my little synopsis, but there it is! I think you are right about the later date. I wish I had continued to think it was July as I was originally told by the admissions office. After hearing May from some of the nursing staff, I can hardly wait! Im just trying to continue as if Im not accepted and getting a couple other classes out of the way to maybe apply into BSN programs… I really would love to get into MC’s though!

    I can hardly wait and I hope for good news!!! I am finishing up my last priority course, BI205, and I graduate this spring with an AA in General Studies!! If I don't get in this Fall than I will reapply for Spring as well as apply to UMB for their BSN program! I hope for the best and June does seem so far out especially when fall registration begins April 23. I'm a nervous wreck but I have alot to keep me busy!! Best of luck to all of us and hope we are all in this Fall!!

    Eramos, I'm graduating this spring with my general studies, too! I've registered summer I for CH101 and BI213, the last two courses I need for prereqs into UMD and other BSN programs in the area. Good luck!

    Hey Drea!!
    I hope we do get in for the fall!!! I was going to take CH101 in the summer but unfortunately with my work schedule it doesn't work. Which campus are you taking it at and with whom? So how did you do on the TEAS test? I did farely well with no studying so if by any chance I do not get in this fall I will study and retake it! I always have a plan B and sometimes a plan C...LOL So are you going to apply for UMB in the Spring? That's my plan B, I am planning on taking Chem in the fall and that will be the last pre req I need for UMB. I am actually excited and nervous that I have made it this far!!! Well best of luck!!

    E- I posted my scores in the first couple posts. I didn't do as well as I had hoped with having studied the second time around. If things don't work out for the fall, I'd be looking into the spring as well and into a much wider selection of schools although MC really is the best fit. Once I get the chem and nutrition class out of my way, I'll only have nursing courses to complete, so my fingers are crossed! Good luck to you and everyone on this thread!

    Drea- Lets hope we both get in for the fall!! If not we can try again for the Spring and maybe go for UMB for their BSN program!! I have even considered FCC I just got their package today, they do not require a TEAS score and is probably why they are extremely competitive...but if I gotta wait til Spring then I am applying every where in order to increase my chances and not having to wait even longer!! I am not getting any younger...LOL

    Best of luck to us all!!!

    Hi Everyone,
    Thank drea588 for getting this thread started. I applied at the last minute to Montgomery College's Nursing Program for Fall 2012 on the 29th, the same day I took the TEAS for the first time! I was accepted to GW Nursing program last fall but couldn't afford the heavy price tag so I'm trying again, taking another route to get to the same destination. I was going to apply to Montgomery for Fall of 2013 but when my hours go cut at work I decided now was the time! I have all requirements done including micro and all general education classes completed so I'm hoping I get in. Does anyone know of a clinic that has reasonable fees for all the blood work and vaccines? Also, does anyone plan on working while in school?
    University of Maryland student Health Clinic Offers services to uninsured MC students at rates students can afford.

    Guys I am a nervous wreck at the thought of waiting until mid June to find out!! I looked in the Fall 2011 applicants thread and they said they all got their acceptance letters at the end of May! Has anyone gotten any info from them saying that the application was received/processed or things to do etc? I hope we find out soon! Please let me know if you guys hear anything at all!

    My Admission Stats

    Reading = 92.9%
    Adjusted Individual Score = 78.0%
    ATI Academic Preparedness Level = Advanced

    EN 101
    BI 204
    BI 205
    MA 110
    --> I just need EN 102 to have all priority courses done

    Overall GPA (for all college courses): 3.3

    Anyone else want to share/compare so we can all feel a bit more at ease? Yikes I can not wait to find out about getting in!

    Sarah, you look to be in great shape. The average teas score of applicants is 72-74 according to the program's staff. They also mentioned that mid-may letters will be out, so I trust their estimated time. If you look in earlier posts, you'll see detailed post of my teas scores. Overall 72%, i have all required and priority courses and after this semester only nursing classes for MC and after summer I, only nursing classes for rn-bsn. Im just really anxious to get the ball rolling towards my nursing career. If i dont get in this fall and have to put it off a semester or for a year, i'd be so upset! Good luck everyone. We will know soon enough.

    Thanks drea588, I'll defiantly give them a call and get some pricing information on the physical and blood work. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only person who will be working, but I think it's almost impossible to go to full time school and not work in the DC metropolitan area unless someone else is financially sponsoring your life! It's so expensive here. Has anyone heard if graduates are getting jobs after graduating? Good luck!
