    I have the same questions. I can't wait until Thursday. There are so many plans to make.
    KLB1230 have you taken all your general education courses? I still have PSY 200 and HUM. I'll have to work these classes in sometime in the future.

    Where should I begin? Oh MONEY.
    1. We have two children, 11 and 9 years old with another baby due in early January. 2. Mortgage
    3. Car note
    4. Health insurance
    And the list can go on and on. As I said in an earlier post I did apply to both full time and part time to increase my chances on getting accepted. But, if I had gotten into the full time program we would have to make may life altering changes. We were willing to make these changes but only if we had to. My wife is very supportive as I make this change in professions.

    I applied for both part time and full time and marked part time as my first choice. I spoke with the Shelby advisor today and was told that 180 points was the cut off for both full and part time. Also, the part time program only took 30 students. I'm glad to be one of the 30.

    The mailman finally came and I now have my letter. It's now official!!! I'm in!!!!! But I still wonder what took so long. Has anyone heard why we had to wait so long?

    I got the same call. I'm also in the part time program. She said the my letter should come today or tomorrow. I'll see you on the 19th. Good luck to you guys.

    Stef please explain points being lower in St. Vincents program. I've never heard this.

    Stef you are correct. I mixed up the 100 vs. 116. Math 100 is counted in Cat. 1 and Cat. 2.

    Not being able to have a cell phone is a bummer. I have two midgets running around the house and a new one due in early January. I need a phone for emergencies.

    per my calculations your total is 171.
    30=a&p 1
    30= a&p 2
    20= math 100 math 100 only gives you 11 points. it is not counted in the top catagory.
    99=compass
    11=math
    total=190 new total 171.

    sorry to deliver the bad news. but, i also thought that math 100 was more points and found out that only higher level math courses are ranked 30, 20 and 10 catagory. i was highly disapointed to get this information from james buxton.

    188 and 185 are great point totals. That would have gotten you into the last two classes. Congrats on your totals. I hope to see you guys there. I would prefer the Part-time program but will take full time to keep from waiting for another part-time program to begin. My first campus choice is Jefferson since I live 3 miles away. But, I will take Shelby if I had to.

    Yes, it is. I finish the mini-term today and picked up 2 out of 3 of my old trascipts yesterday. I almost ready to turn in my paperwork!!! Soon I'll be waiting (stalking) on the mailman again.

    Indieflower I got the same points information from the advisors. I also applied for Fall 2006 and was just a couple of points short. I decided not to apply for Spring 2007 and wait for the part time program that begins Fall 2007. I talked to the advisers in March and found out that I had enough points to make the cut if I had only applied. I'm now gathering all my old transcripts and getting ready to turn in my paperwork next week. Will you be applying for Fall 2007?

    The 200 points are broken down into three sections.
    Section I contains specific science courses that have been taken. A=30 points, B=20 and C=20.
    Section II contains specific math couses. You are given 11 or 5 points depending on the level of Math and the grade earned.
    Section III is the Compass Test that gives a maximum of 99 points.
