    CMA-lpn Yeah sure I don't know if I'll be going places, it sounds like I am doesn't it? But I can tell you where I've been-Just to let you know my GPA from 20 years ago, before I got "side tracked" marrying my awful ex husband was very low (2s) and held me back from even trying to pursue it. Now, 15 yrs later, finally divorced and now remarried with toddlerboy twins in tow, I finally have my head together and have been working hard for almost 2 yrs and 21 credits-maintaining a high GPA so I can stand out. Who knows how they look at grades from 20 years ago?

    Quote from Melissa854
    I called Massasoit today, they dont think they will be sending out letters until May
    Oh wow, I was hoping to hear in the next couple of weeks
    This is maddening!!! Thanks for the info.

    Does everyone here have all the sciences done (including micro and human growth & development) ?
  3. by   phina70
    hlj yes I completed all my reqs just this past Fall semestre. Micro was the last one I had to do, and it was tougher than I was expecting. I'm all done with my pre reqs this time around including Human and growth dev. when I applied last year, I still had a&p2 and Micro to take.

    Wow, that is great phina70! I am only now taking a&p II and I still have micro and HG&D to take...If I don't get in, I won't feel so bad and can take my time with those courses. I think they REALLY want people who are ALL done so they only have to concentrate on the nursing classes. Good luck to you! If anyone gets a letter (good or bad) please let us know!!!

    The Mail arrives. ....there's a med size brown envelope from Massasoit my hands shake as I open it and... (drum roll)'s for the June Graduation, 3 tickets for my guests and info on the ceremony . Oh God, how will I last till early May? I'm sure I didn't get in, the competition is fierce! sorry for being such a joker, couldnt resist.

    OMG it is crazy!! I talked to them today and they said beginning to Mid-May. I never heard mid-May before.
    It seems like they're stretching the time longer and longer. I'd like a yes or no so I can move on or not and plan my summer & fall... it will be either school or work! EEEEEK!

    I wonder if this extension to mid- may correlates to Quincy's extension? Hmmm...

    CMA-No I don't think it does. When I applied last year it took this long too. Hopefully, 2nd times the Charm..

    Mid-May?! That's CRAZY! I was accepted at BCC and was forced to put a $200 non-refundable deposit down for my seat, there is a mandatory orientation May 3rd where they want $40 uniform deposit, $50 drug test fee... at this rate I guess I'll be staying at BCC, I'm investing too much money to not go! It doesn't seem right MCC is taking so long to put the initial class together. I guess it will create openings for others on the wait-list if some first choice students accept seats at other schools. Good luck to those still waiting, I guess my fate is sealed at BCC.

    May I ask, what is BCC? Bunker Hill CC? If so, when did you hear?!?!?

    BCC is Bristol Community College (Fall River) I live between Brockton & Fall River so the commute is the same for me in either direction. I received my letter on 3/10. BCC had the same Feb 1 deadline, that's why I think May is too long to find out.
  12. by   tapeitup
    The vague "May" date(a) is waaaaay too long to find out. Applications have been there for 3 whole months now. I hope they consider changing the length of time it takes to get letters out. If deposits to reserve your spot have to be given to most other schools, how can one sit around and wait for an answer from Massasoit?
  13. by   Melissa854
    I think that is why massasoit waits til mid may to send out letters. They don't want people to put in a deposit, accept their space, then withdraw. If they are the last school to send out letters, they will get their definite yes or no response from students from the get go, instead of people changing their mind whentheyhear from a different school, ya know?
