That doesn't sound right, 3.5 and a snowball's chance??? I'm not so sure you should listen to this person, sounds like a bubble busting, dream sucker! Maybe that counselor sees so many ppl trying to get into the program and they were just being negative. I'm sure everyone that works there is feeling a little overwhelmed and over worked with them opening back up after the holidays. I can't imagine a 3.5 not even having a chance, especially in the transition program. I know at an info session with USF, they said they would pretty much take any ADN so I can't imagine HCC being pickier.
Hang in there!
