OCCC Spring 2014 Applicants - page 3

I have been checking this board consistently over the past couple of weeks hoping that someone would have started a thread for this spring's admission, but haven't found one yet! Are we slacking, or... Read More

    I really need to get started on all of that stuff! I know I've had most of my immunizations, but I have no idea where to find records of them! It's awful, I know! I also need to look into the CPR class. If I get a chance I will post any information I find on them though.

    Hello All!! I am glad to see more posts in here! Its been 2 weeks and the thought of 3 more weeks (at least is killing me)!! @MeganOKC, you could try the Health Department. From my understanding, a lot of records are now digital and are recorded (and converted) to a digital record that can be accessed by everyone. Also, I think its free to obtain your shot record. I work for the State so I will try to get mine and if I have any problems I will let you know! @Lizanne23...I saw that OKCCC has a CPR class on Saturdays as well. I believe the cost is $65 and the bookstore told me the book is approx. $18. However, the bookstore told me that I really dont need the book and most return it!

    200 Applicants....man...I dont know how to feel. I have 18 points, but I wonder if the larger pool of applicants will make for an increase in the point cutoff. Any ideas?

    I did the CNA program at Moore Norman Technology, so I verified or got most of my shots at that time. I know OCCC has a CPR class as well, and I'm not sure what the difference is. The one at MNT was not as expensive and we didn't need to purchase a book. I am sure they are similar. I applied with 17 points. If I don't get in for the spring then I will have 20 points for the fall. I don't really want to think about that but I guess it's a backup plan. I will take my math placement and I will have my associates in December, that will give me 3 additional points. Hopefully the cut off will be similar to what it has been in the past.

    I don't know how many have been applying each semester? It may be the same each time, it's just that 200 sounds like a lot. I know of several people applying with 14, 15, and 16 points. Too bad we couldn't all get in.

    I guess I need to get moving on my CPR cert. As far as the immunizations, is it just a matter of making sure we are current on them? I will need to get my record out and check.

    @lizanne23..From what I understand, there is an average of 200-300 that apply each semester. Claire did say that more tend to apply in the fall than in the spring. But I agree, 200 does sound like a lot! I can't imagine you not getting in with 17 points...I would be really shocked! I agree....I just wish they would take everyone that applied!

    Okay gals. I was doing some poking around on the OCCC website looking for CPR information and I came across the acceptance letters for Fall 2013 program! Has a lot of good information and just thought I might share. Has information on immunizations and lots of other good stuff. I hope we will each be getting one of these for Spring!!!!!

    So exciting! Let's try to get everything done that we can so we will not be stressing at the last minute. I'm glad they didn't make us wait 2-3 more weeks.
