I rushed home from work to check the mail with no news either.
I'm waiting for the open enrollment for Allied School. And if I don't get into Rio then I will also apply to Citrus, PCC, and Mt. Sac. I actually visited GCC and was about to apply but decided to wait on it for now. I think you should contact GCC and ask for an update with the counselor or their Nursing Department. They seem like they are willing to provide an update with applicants unlike others.
I also casually met a counselor at ELAC and dropped off my information at their Nursing Department but they are incredibly vague, unhelpful, and have no real system when it comes to selection like the other schools.
Anyway, I'm hoping we have better news with tomorrow's delivery or by next week!
Yeah, I'm planning on applying County's RN school as well.
I think Citrus doesn't start until next year, they use a similar point system like PCC's old point system (PCC just changed their point system this summer.) GCC is tricky, they use the chancelor's formula much like Rio Hondo, and as long as you have 75 points and score 62% on TEAS you'll enter the lottery pool. (so, it doesn't even matter someone who scores a 90% on TEAS. i'm basically competing with B-average students who got 62% on their TEAS.) I'm not too familiar with Mt. Sac since it's way too far from me.
However, you do wanna meet up with the official nursing conselor from ELAC. As long as you're C average on all of your classes (yep, sciences are included as well,) and you passed your TEAS with 62%, you'll be qualified to be placed on the waiting list. The last time i checked, it's a 3-year waiting list... but, anything can happen at any given time...
I read from another Rio Hondo post that getting a letter in the mail means you got in, an email means no. And instead of rushing home from work, there's actually an app you can download called "informed delivery" from the USPS, this app gives you scans of your daily mail on your smartphone!! And as long as you saw on your phone that you are receiving something in the mail from Rio Hondo that means you're in!!
I hope all of my info helps.
