Thoughts of the day?

  1. So what's going on with everyone today? What's everyone stressing about, or not stressing about today?

    I feel like chatting. So what's the scoop?:smilecoffeecup:

    The scoop for me is I am anxious and antsy! i start school a week from today and I want it to start NOW! LOL.

    I've been trying to occupy myself to no avail. My friend gave me her NCLEX study book to show me the types of ?'s etc and it has a disk w/practice tests. <patting self on back> I've been taking these practice tests and have been consistantly scoring 80% or better!!

    How 'bout you? Did the school you really want to attend respond w/letter of acceptance yet?

    Ditto. As the days go by, the more nervous I get. Letters are supposed to go out this week.

    I am going crazy waiting for this stupid letter!! I am making out a plan B, C, and D over here!! I can only apply once a year, so that is extra time to work on courses related to a BSN, but I pretty much have them all done! I hope this letter comes soon with positive results!!

    Not yet. And honestly, I don't think I'll get in. I scored high on the TEAS and pretty much have all A's (except for one B+). However, they have no rhyme or reason as to who they accept. And there's only 20 spots right now & they had over 300 applicants.

    CT, you're doing great on the NCLEX! WTG! That should make you feel very confident. You are going to ace this!

    I'm with the rest of you, too. Still waiting for some letters. ONE that I want the most, but won't hear for another 2 weeks or so. Maybe 3 at the worst.

    The waiting is the worst. SO hard!

    Count me in on that. I won't know until the end of this month/early April . This next month, I forsee, will be one of the hardest yet.

    I don't think I have been this nervous for a few years now.

    I hate my life right now......

    Hey everyone, I am waiting anxiously for an acceptance letter....at least I hope it will be an acceptance letter!!
    My husband is home today and I told him to check the mail so I know if anything came in before I get home from work! He just keeps telling me to not worry and that I will hear something soon...but he just doesn't understand!! he thinks I am crazy I think!
    I don't expect to hear from two of the schools I applied to for awhile yet, but one I think could be any day, so I am at the mailbox as soon as I get home everyday. We got in last night and I was like... I can't check the mail today, it's Sunday!! Anyway, this is what consumes my days, thank goodness I have a lot of other things going on to keep me busy!!

    The waiting is torturous, pure and simple. I've resigned myself into thinking that I'm not going to get in...maybe that way I won't be as crushed. I did pretty well on the NLN...but the competition is fierce. And they decide also by when your letter of intent was submitted...and mine was late-Oct 20, 06. I won't find out for another month ....I've found that I'm not a very patient person. Nice to come here and find out others are feeling the same way.

    Funny you say that.....I have done the same thing. I have mentioned in other posts that my boyfriend refuses to talk to me about it (seriously) b/c he is so sick of me "deprecating" myself. He is confident that I will get in (Though, I don’t see how, since (although I have good qualifications), there are 300 people applying for 40 spots.

    I just think, if I expect to not get in, I won’t be as hurt when I receive that thin letter.....but, who am I kidding? It will still crush me.
