    hehe, I take that as a compliment, Mi'Shelle!:chuckle :chuckle

    Thanks girlie, I figure I'll do this as a countdown. I start to do the thing, and then I think it's superstitious....Ack, I think I HAVE lost it!!

    I had a really great experience tonight. I was going to take my final in one of my psych classes, and one of the ladies in there gave me a Christmas Card. I've only talked to her a few times, but I opened it up,and it had a beautiful Johns Hopkins Hospital ornament in it. She said she had gotten it a few years ago in Baltimore and thought it was a sign when we talked. It was REALLY sweet.

    Thanks for putting up with my schennanigans, y'all..Gotta release it some way, right..wait til you see what I do tomorrow!

    lol....Definitely a compliment!

    I'll put my countdown back on after I apply for Fall. I'm not superstitious. For myself, it helps the days go by quicker.

    I really hope you get in!

    Yeah i was having a problem writing my statement of goals as well. My school gave me specific questions to answer. Did yours? From what I gather the statement of purpose is supposed to help the admissions committee get to know your personality. You might talk about why you want to be a nurse, your expectations of the program, and your future career goals. Try to make your experiences come to life on paper. mention specific examples of experiences that have influenced you, mentions any sites, sounds , or smells you remember. Haha! I just got finished reading a couple of books on college admissions essays.

    Thanks again for the kind words.

    Warning! Warning! Freak out ahead!!

    No countdown today. I'm literally sobbing over here instead of studying for my last two finals. So I had gotten on our university portal to see if any of my other grades were up yet (I know I've gotten A's from talking to the profs, but I always like to double check). So when I try pulling up my "grade report," it says that it will not be up until Thursday the 15th! (day JHU letters come out) and when I try pulling up unofficial transcript, says it won't be up until Monday the 19th!!

    I had emailed one of the ad-coms from JHU last week because I was nervous already that they had pushed finals back a week because of the Hurricanes. I thought the latest the grades would be available was this upcoming Monday (the 12th) and she said that would be fine, and just to fax the unofficial transcript, and the school could send the official one later.

    So what am I going to do?!? I'm just freaking out because I know I have the grades, but I can't send them until after decisions have been made? I really need this transcript to show them that I can do it (all A's in 20 hours) because I have messed up in the past..

    Don't freak out Peachy!!

    I'm not sure how your portal works, but my ecampus basically states a 'date' as well. However, if the instructor posts his final grades for a class, those grades are posted then.

    I have to click on "show all grades" instead of trying to see the grades for that particular semester.

    Now, this may not be true for your school's system, but there's not anything you can do this minute.

    Study for your finals!!!!!!!!

    Then, tomorrow, talk to your instructors and explain to them that the hurricane has delayed things, but other school's haven't changed their deadlines. Ask if there is anyway to have your grades posted sooner.

    Good luck.

    thanks so much for trying to "talk me down" mi'shelle!! it means a lot!

    nah, ul-l's just weird. for the first couple days, i had no problem getting my grades that were up, the others were just blank. then, i guess so many people logging on caused a clusteryounknowwhat, because now it blocks you from getting into either grades or transcripts, and they've shut everyone off until those dates.

    hooooweever, i called the registrar this morning, and he's going to let me come this upcoming monday to get mine!! :santa2: resent2:

    i'm actually kinda freaked out that it went that easy. i had the whole thing rehearsed, and didn't even get to use anything. i just did my intro, and he said, "when can you come get it?" hehehe, i was for once speechless!

    so what are you up to these days, girlie?

    so the countdown is back!

    six!! six days!! ah ah ah ah ah!!!

    So much for the renewed optimism...

    Found on the Maryland thread that people have already started to be notified about acceptance.

    I haven't heard anything, so not looking good.

    I was wondering if it is too early for me to jump on this bandwagon.... My application deadline is March 8th. After I take my physio final on Wednesday I will have completed all my pre-reqs. Only thing I'm lacking is taking my TEAS exam - which I am doing the 2nd week of January. Now, the way our school does admissions is assign a point value to your grades and then add on your raw TEAS score. They line you up and cut off the top 20-30 - depending on clinical space. I have all A's - but without taking that TEAS yet, I am starting to enter panic mode. And it has just hit me all of a sudden - I can't seem to get it out of my head...I am so afraid I won't get in after my last 2.5 years of hard work!

    I just need to buckle up and pass my final for now - but I really can't seem to focus for this new found panic about getting in!!!!

    You will be accepted, don't panic just yet. I was the same way, so now it's my turn to comfort you!!!!!!!!!!!
