Long-time (then-unregistered) lurker, first time poster.
Has anyone else applied to the WCCCD nursing program for Spring 2010? I applied yesterday (the 6/15 meeting) at the Western campus. I didn't pay much attention to how many people showed up, but it was held in the lecture hall, which I think seats 100, and almost every seat was filled. However, quite a few people had to leave because they tried submitting a copy of a reference or a copy of their NET scores (instead of the originals), or had done the background check/MSP clearance more than 30 days ago, so I'm sure the June 30th meeting will be a mad-house.
The meeting wasn't anything like I'd expected - but then, that's what I get for listening to the "My friend applied, and s/he said..." lines, right?
After weeks spent fretting over things - are my references long enough? Is my essay good enough? Is 85 a good enough NET score? - it was kind of anti-climactic. That said, I'm incredibly relieved to have gotten that over with.
I'm not stressing out about getting in (but am by no means assuming I will be accepted; why jinx myself?), but I am dreading this Waiting Game.
According to that "FYI" poster-board, the Happy/So Sorry letters should start going out in August, so I've already warned my (very awesome) postal carrier that I may become a bit stalkerish come August.
Anyway, I'm just curious to see if anyone else here will be starting the program at the same time (should we be accepted, of course!). I already know two women I'm sure will get in, but it couldn't hurt to know a few more, right?
