Hi bb18! Welcome to the thread.
Okay everyone, in regards to my issue with NursingCAS receiving my transcripts:
NursingCAS claimed they only received 1 transcripts out of the 3 schools I've attended and my application has not been checked off as completed yet.... I ran to the schools that they said they did not receive yet last Friday and purchased a second copy for both and had them sent out that same day. I called NursingCAS again to explain to them that I already sent the transcripts but they should be receiving a 2nd copy of both soon. The representative told me that once they receive the transcripts, there's no way to track when they get to their office until they are scanned. Once scanned, they take 7-10 business days to process before it gets uploaded to your application. Ugh!
So I decided to give Rutgers a ring. I asked the admissions rep when the committee was convening and asked if I still had a chance seeing as to this issue was out of my control. He said the committee began at least reviewing the applications, and has access to see them even if we don't see "completed" on our end, so he basically was trying reassure me that even if my transcripts weren't checked off as completed, they could see that I had everything else. He then told me that the reviewing process is at the very least 2-3 weeks long, and that if I could try my best to get the necessary materials by then, they could push my application further along into the completed applicant pool. These transcripts better make it!
On a more personal note (one that could possibly help others), I am currently taking my last two pre-requisites (Bio organic chem and Microbio). Although I showed that I am taking these classes at the moment on my NursingCAS application, the admissions rep advised me to submit some kind of proof of my current enrollment in these classes so that they don't just "write my application off". He gave me the email address of the admissions department and said that "a simple screenshot of your internet browser with your class schedule pulled up showing it is for Fall 2015 semester" should suffice.
Having a mental breakdown....LOL! Sending you peace, soothing cups of tea, and virtual hugs to all of you during this anxiety-ridden time!
