They haven't let any alternates in yet, he has to go through and figure if any slots have become available (I was sitting next to alt. #1). I won't matter that you have a meeting Mon. it won't affect your hospital prefrence because it all depends on what becomes available. He did say the average is about the 1st 20 alternates get in, but could be more or less. Our ranking may have been effected by today's meeting because people who didn't show are out (unless they had made other arrangements) and there def. weren't 50 nursing students there. Also the ones who got in and didn't show for yesterday's meeting are out unless they already turned in their background check. Hope I helped!
