    Good ADN Programs with Waitlist

    Hi there, Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut has a great program, they run a lottery system and it takes on average 1-2 years before starting. They have great instructors and support as well as high pass rates. Good luck with your decision.

    Mt. SAC nursing program Spring 2010

    hi there...i will be starting this fall 2010 and from the time i applied nov 2008 to when we start it will be about 2 years. i also heard they were thinking about cutting the program down from 60 students to 50 students which may increase the wait time for some students, but i would check with the nursing counselors or the nursing department. good luck and hang in there!

    Almost 30 & starting Pre-Nursing. How long is school?

    Almost 30 & starting Pre-Nursing. How long is school?

    from my experience, there are a lot of factors that determine the time it will take you. Where will you be applying?, do they have a wait list?, what type of program do you want to enter? Personally, I started my prereqs in 2003, only taking one class a semester and working full time. I finished up sometime in early 2008 and applied in fall 2008. Because of the california budget crisis and shortage of faculty, I will have waited 2 years by the time I start in fall 2010...then another 2 years to complete my ADN...so by 2012 I will be graduating (totalling 9 years!)

    Reebok EasyTone

    Thanks for the advice. You can get them in all leather now, I'm not sure if they are available in the store or just online, but I saw them online-and they come in all white. I'm definately going to look into getting a pair!

    mtsac nursing 2010 fall

    we don't need to take the TEAS for admission to the program, just the HESI. So as long as you passed the HESI in January, you will be fine.

    mtsac nursing 2010 fall

    I called the nursing department when I received my letter and they said if we have already passed it, then we don't need to retake the hesi.

    MTSAC's lottery number (2010)

    It took a couple of months for me to receive my first letter. I applied in October 2008, received my first letter in January 2009, then another in August 2009 with an updated lottery number, same thing again in January 2010. Then this past May I received my letter to start this fall. From what I understand, they send the letters out during those months because the classes are already selected for the upcoming term and they can give you a more accurate number of your position. Also, from what I've noticed, the nursing department does always seem to run behind...

    MTSAC's lottery number (2010)

    I completely understand your concern and confusion when it comes to these lottery numbers. I say if you are number 45 when the fall letters are generated, then you start the following spring. The letter I received in May said I was number 33 and I will be starting this coming fall. I hope this clears up some things...

    MTSAC's lottery number (2010)

    Personally, I don't think they really hand pick based on gpa. My reason for this is just based on this forum though since there were a few people that posted their numbers and stated they had 4.0 gpa but had higher lottery numbers than I did and I don't have a solid 4.0 gpa. If it was based on gpa I would think they would have already been in and not had a greater number. jewelspassion: no orientation packet, but maybe this week! I've been checking my mail everyday and am so anxious!

    MTSAC's lottery number (2010)

    I agree, the numbers can be hard to figure out. I guess what makes things difficult is that we really don't know how many people that previously got letters to start in spring 2010 needed to defer or didn't pass the hesi or changed their mind and didn't want to start the program at all. The way I look at it is like this: I was number 73 in January, which was when they also sent out letters of intent for us to return. Out of the 72 before me at that time, 39 people either didn't return their letter or started a program elsewhere, making me number 33 for the Fall 2010 lottery. Now who knows how many people out of the 32 before me now are actually going to start next semester? It seems like its half and half....half of the people on the waiting list decide to start and half don't. When they accepted 90 into the program a couple of semesters back, my anticipated start date was spring 2010, so I would have waited 1.5 years after applying. With the 60 they accept now, it pushed me back one semester to fall 2010 and increased my wait to 2 years total. So I would think that you can estimate between 1.5-2 year wait before starting. Let me know if you have any more questions or if what I explained doesn't make sense because I needed to keep reading it to make sure it made some sort of sense, but these lottery numbers are tricky!
