    Yes, Car pooling would be really good to do. We could rotate days of the week which will save us all on gas and mileage.
  2. ShelHuss89

    OC Tech Fall17

    Yes, I will be. I live in Columbia. And I also recieived my orientation letter in the mail today.

    If you received the letter about the deposit, then you should have your official acceptance letter. That is when you're notified of the $50.00 deposit to hold your spot.

    I never realized you messaged me privately back in March and just received a email about you commenting on this post. My bad for the late response, I've answered both questions below. No. The final acceptance letter only had information about how to setup the D2L student email and the connect accounts. It also advise you to pay a $50 deposit to hold your seat in the program. There is a deadline for that as well, I believe they give you nearly 2 weeks. You wont receive a letter about orientation until the end of May. Orientation will be held on multiple days in June. I'm sure at the orientation they will go over every other detail need for the program.

    Yes. I received a contingent letter which means I'd be accepted based on the results from my background check which costs $117. I've never been arrested, so I wasn't worried. I received that letter Feb 24th. There's a deadline to have the check completed. It took about 2 wks after, I received an email from the admissions office stating my letter was on the way. My official acceptance letter came in the mail 2 days later.

    And no, once they already have your transcripts on file, no need to resubmit. I would only make sure they have ALL transcripts on file prior to submitting your application, because they won't accept it if not.

    Thanks! You should be fine. I turned my application in Jan.30th and had my interview on Feb 15th. You can only turn your application in M-Thurs 8-4. I would call to make sure all of your transcripts, including HS have been received and evaluated before submitting your application. Your application is inspected to make sure you have everything on the checklist, if so, you meet with an advisor where your grades are evaluated. The advisor will tell you exactly what option is best to apply with. It will then be forwarded to the Health Science Dept. If they are interested, you will get called to setup an interview. The interview is roughly about 15-20 mins. The questions are very general, if you have the passion to become a nurse, I'm sure you will get selected! If you have any more questions, I'm here to help!!! Good luck! 😊

    Orangeburg Calhoun Tech Fall 2017 ADN

    Hello, I applied to OC Tech Fall 17 ADN program. I was accepted with 15 pts. I applied through the GPA option. I had a 3.69 GPA

    If that seems blunt, I apologize. I just know that I was told the program expects you to perform and it is challenging. You must make a B or higher in all of your nursing classes or you're dismissed from the program. Which is why they look for strong GPA's during the application process. I'm nervous myself, however I'm confident I can maintain a B when I start.

    It lasts for about 10-15 minutes. I'm not sure if they ask the same questions for everyone they interview because my classmate were asked different questions then I was asked so I dont want to misinform you. Honestly, if your heart is in this to become a nurse, you will sell yourself and do well at convincing them to give you a chance. There is no way to rehearse this interview. They want to see passion and of course, be yourself.

    Someone in admissions call to setup a interview for the available dates and times where you come to the school and is interviewed by the nursing instructors or nursing program coordinators. I was interviewed by the ADN coordinators. They never do interviews over the phone.

    thank you. keep pushing and you will!
  13. ShelHuss89

    OC Tech Fall17

    Oh okay. I had my interview on Wednesday by two ADN coordinators and was accepted right away through a verbal acceptance. My acceptance letter with orientation information is suppose to be sent out within the next couple of weeks. My GPA was at a 3.69, so I believe that's what got me in and also once I finish this semester at Midlands Tech, I will have all the required pre-requisites completed. I'm sorry you didn't meet the requirements, however you can aim for the 65 on the TEAS. Good Luck.

    OC Tech Fall17

    Why are they making you take the TEAS test? I dont understand. You are eligible to apply using 4 different options. If you haven't taken the TEAS, but have at least 13 credit hrs of the core nursing pre-reqs with a 2.75 then you can apply that way, ACT or SAT score, or by already having a degree with at least a 2.75 Did they even accept your application?

    hello, I am. well, I already have. It's only been 4 days since I turned in my application. Now I'm just waiting on the next step.
