  1. Yeah I had to call the school to ask if I got accepted last semester and the lady told me that if I hadn't already received an email, then it was a no. She said it took so long last semester because it was so competitive. She said that out of all of the years she's been at ATC, that was the most competitive semester she's seen yet. Of course the next day I finally received my letter in the mail telling me I didn't get in. I wish they'd let us know sooner so we have time to prepare ourselves if we do get in. If I get accepted, this will be my first year having to take out a loan and I'm not sure exactly how to do that (other than obviously applying through FASFA) and I'll need to know how much I will need to take out. It's stressful all the way around but it will all pay off in the end. I just have to remind myself to look at the bigger picture.
  2. I applied. Dang I thought I actually stood a chance this semester compared to the last two times I applied but hearing how many points you both have and your GPA's, is making me a little nervous now! I spoke with the lady who calculates the official GPA's for the nursing program last semester and she said that for the spring, you typically want to aim for about 27 points and for the fall, you typically want to aim for about 30 points. I got right at 30 points this time so I'm hoping I will be getting in this semester. I'm retaking Microbiology again in hopes that it will bring up my GPA even more and so that way if I don't get in this semester, I will have (hopefully) 33 points. I have a high B in the class right now but we've only had 2 graded assignments so far. Has anyone heard when they may be sending out the letters? Good luck to you both! You both are SURE to get in!! :)

    Aiken Tech Spring 2018 applicants

    Just got off work and got home. I had two letters from ATC waiting on me. Both were the same letter. I didn't get in this time due to my GPA. I figured since everything else was pretty decent that if I applied I may have been able to get in. I didn't have any classes left to take so i took the semester off but I guess this upcoming semester I'll have to take just a class or two to get my grade point average up. I had a 2.7 so I guess I will retake a class to make a higher grade in it? I figured I would go ahead and apply since I was done with classes and was advised by my advisor to go ahead and apply even though my GPA was 2.7 because "You never really know." Any advice guys? So happy for those of you that got in though!! :) Maybe next go around? (HOPEFULLY!)

    Aiken Tech Spring 2018 applicants

    Hey yall! I applied for January 2018 to and was just venting to a friend who had just asked if I heard anything yet and she showed me this site. I was told we should hear back within a couple of WEEKS after the deadline but I have not received anything either and I like in North Augusta exactly 10 minutes from Aiken Tech! Getting worried myself! Glad to know that it's not just me though! :)
