    LATTC RN Spring & Fall 2019 Acceptance

    I applied November 13, 2017. That's when I submitted my official application to be put on the wait list. So I waited 3 semesters not counting the application semester.

    I am in my second term at WCU north hollywood. Besides being ridiculously expensive (after loans grants and scholarship i am still paying 1200 a month) it isn't so bad. The classes move very quickly and with only meeting once a week for classes, most of it ends up being self study. The classes are blended 3 1/2 hours in class and an hour and half online per week. Once you get the hang of things keeping up with the pace becomes easier. There are a lot of tutoring sources they provide so take advantage. As for the professors some are good and some are bad. And by bad I mean they don't teach at all. Your first term you don't choose your schedule they choose for you. But after you register for classes and they have a few day and time options for every class. And you register in week 6 of the previous term so you will have time to let your employer know of the changes in your schedule. Class sizes are smaller than community college at about 20-25 a class and they encourage a lot of group work. I start nursing core in June so I can't speak for what that is like yet but so far the gen eds have not been super hard and as long as you go to class and do the work you will be fine. They don't kick people out easily during the orientation they explain how many fails you are allowed in gen ed and nursing before they kick you out. And they explain the attendance policy. Overall I would advise you to look at all options before committing to this school as you will grow tired of figuring out how to pay for it.

    yes there are other options but when most community colleges are lottery systems unless your the lucky one that gets picked on your first try, your gonna wait about 2-3 years. I like many others who have chosen to attend this school don't have the time to be waiting around. It is extremely expensive but they offer a good program.

    I applied to two lenders and was rejected. So yes I was rejected twice. And i sent in those rejections with the scholarship application.

    Yes first you need to be rejected for private loans and you need to give them proof of the denials. Then they will give you the application for the scholarship. The point system is attached to the scholarship application. Once you submit it the committee will review it and decide if you get the scholarship. The amount will vary based on your point ranking.

    i also received a scholarship from them. Its a point system based on need gpa and hesi/teas score. Your need would be how much money you still owe after federal loans grants etc. So depending on your point score determines how much money you will receive. And to maintain the scholarship amount you have to keep your GPA above a 3.0.

    LATTC RN Spring & Fall 2019 Acceptance

    i'm sorry. I know how discouraging the waiting can be. Especially when they keep giving you different answers. For me it was spring 2019, fall 2019 then spring 2020. You could apply to lotteries while you wait. Maybe you might get into to another school before spring 2020. Private school is an option. West coast is a good school but the terms move very fast and its a lot of work.

    I am currently attending west coast. It was expensive but i honestly wish i would have started sooner. i contacted them in September. You could try that I know some one on here mentioned they were able to see the list. Good luck to you!

    LATTC RN Spring & Fall 2019 Acceptance

    I have been waiting since November 2017. And each time i called I was told maybe spring maybe fall then the last time i spoke with them i was told spring 2020. I got tired of waiting so i am attending another nursing school currently. The semester you applied does not count. so you might be in for fall depending on how many people reject their acceptances. But more than likely spring 2020.

    Your welcome if you have any other questions i will be glad to answer them.

    That's wonderful ! I am so happy to hear you got in for spring !

    No the 136k would be the whole cost of the program including your GE courses. But most people transfer in classes to cut down the cost and time. It would be best to take your GE courses at a community college and then start the program there. They can give you a list of courses that transfer. If you complete all GE courses you will be there for 5 1/2 semesters instead of the full 8

    I live in California and have been trying to get into a nursing program for two years. Most here are admitted based on lottery so either you are the luck of the draw or you wait who knows how long. I have a family and i don't have anymore time to waste. West coast is in fact accredited. It may be a guaranteed spot for acceptance but that doesn't mean you are paying for a degree. You still have to put in the work. I know many past graduates who have had no trouble finding a job. Maybe where you are they may laugh at west coast graduates but not here. West coast also has a 93 percent pass rate for the nclex on the first attempt. Yes it is a for-profit school with high tuition. I was fortune enough to qualify for a scholarship through them and for grants. So i will finish with no more debt than if i attended a regular university. You are entitled to your opinion but i thought I would inform you as to why people choose this school and that not everyone will be drowning in debt or laughed at when seeking employment.

    How did/do you pay for nursing school?

    I am starting my first year in a few weeks. So far I received full cal grant and pell grant. Federal loans and a scholarship. The rest will be paid monthly out of pocket.
