    I emailed the advisor for nursing and she said we should hear back either this week or the week after
    Good luck!

    I think the only people who know about their application intake status for August 2011 are the ones who were waitlisted for January 2011 but didn't make it into that semester. When they do post your status in March (either mid or late March depending on whether you have a degree or not), I think that you will only find out whether you were shortlisted. But best of luck!

    Make sure you stay on top of all the form deadlines. And it wouldn't be a bad idea to get your CPR HCP too.

    BCIT's program I have heard is great, however you do need 30 credits prior to entering. I am a UFV student in their 3 year program. It is a full 120 credits in 3 years and goes through summer. No credits prior to school is required.

    As for ESNing... i know BCIT does not allow you to ESN for the 3 year.. but you get a paid preceptorship.

    UFV students are allowed to ESN during the 3 years.. and we schedual ourselves in when we have off days at school etc.

    Just somethign to look at

    I was wondering if anyone who is already in the program could post their stats (GPA, work/volunteer experiences, what kind of health-related experiences, how many times applied before being accepted etc, etc) so I could use as a reference of comparisions. That's highly appreciated. Thanks in advance!!!

    Also, BCIT said that we should hear back before 4/30. Based on your experience, is it really the last week of April? Anyone know how early do they start sending out acceptance letter?

    Just checked my application status... Provisional Acceptance xDDDDDDDDD

    I thought that they would send me an email in addition to changing my status on my account. Perhaps a letter is on its way...

    What to do next? A little confused! I thought there is something called the commitment fee that we have to pay immediately upon acceptance. Does anyone know the deadline to pay?

    You should get an email shortly with all sorts of information about what to do next! I believe the committment fee is something like $200, you usually have a few weeks to pay that. This will be explained in your email. So for now you can just celebrate!
    Congratulations green_tea! I know you have been waiting a long time for this i'm sure you will love BCIT!

    Congrats green tea!!!
    I just checked mine too but nothing has changed yet about my application. It makes me a bit worried!!!

    Thanks for the fast reply jasn! In fact, I just checked and I have received all the information I need. I could finally focus on my exams and graduation instead of checking my status every other hour lol! It feels good to know that I've made it as I've been trying to get into nursing in the last 3 years!!!

    srama, maybe they send out acceptance letters in batches. :: crossing my fingers for you :: x)

    Hi everyone!

    I just found this thread a couple days ago, but I had activation problems so I couldn't reply to this message as soon as I wanted to.

    I actually applied for this intake at BCIT too, and I found out on the same day as green_tea that I had been accepted (Btw, congrats green_tea!!!!)
    I'm so excited to start in August! It feels like such a relief that I got in, since I didnt make the cut last year.

    But anyways, I hope you guys find out soon! I know it's so hard to wait that long... And don't worry if you dont hear anything from BCIT until the 30th. I know that last year they were still accepting until that last date.
    Good luck!

    Hi everyone,
    I am so nervous, I got shortlisted for the August 2011 intake. I still am waiting for a letter/message from them. Ive heard that some people already receivced their acceptance letters already. Does this mean that the ones who wait the longest, will be sent a letter that they did not make it in? Has anyone else got a non-acceptance letter/message yet? *Fingers Crossed*

    Hi everyone, I was wondering if the people who got accepted could give some info regarding their gpa and level of education. Or volunteer experiences. So everyone who is looking into the program
    Could have a reference. As we all know bcit doesn't say any competitive marks etc
    I would really appreciate. I am currently in my third year of bsn in UBC.

    Thanks a lot

    Hey nursingprogram1, I'm actually not sure if that means you won't get in. I read in some old forums that people were gettting accepted right on the deadline, so don't give up hope!!

    Hamid, I actually had a decent gpa. I recieved an associate of science degree in december, and during my last semester I had about 2 A-'s, and 3 B+'s. That was actually the best I had done, since before that I had never even received an A, let alone so many high B's.
    As for work experience, I've been working in an optometrical setting for about a year now. I also volunteered quite a bit (From last June to last December) at a seniors centre. As well as that, I volunteered for six months last year at a hospital.

    Hope that helps! And good luck to everyone who still has to hear back!
