    I paid the $175 fee, I have until spring 2013 to decide on this program. I'm locked into the price all in was $55,000. After $10,000 student loans, and pell grant, I'm still looking at $900 a month for outside loans. It's crazy, but I hate to wait until May and god forbid get denied again and waste more time. What to do?!?!

    You have to call that lady Barbara and she collects the money and I believe that's when you take the tests she will schedule for you Brockton is in Brockton mass lol I'm just tired of waiting for CCRI and I wanted to move up there eventually anyways I'm going to travel and see how it is well if or when I get in

    That's total BS! I happen to know someone who was accepted into CCRI Nursing program with a 3.2 GPA. This fall semester. Don't believe people, often they put out erroneous information to discourage you thus, making their odds better. GETTING INTO CCRI NURSING PRORAM IS NOT HARD. However, you must do well in your pre-req classes. Once you have met your requirements, you are good to go. I got in with a 3.4 and a weak TEASE score.

    Arbor my friend wouldn't lie he was upset he didnt get in with 93 points his friend had 96 of course it depends on who else applied I had -A in anatomy and physiology and 3.3 weak teas and I didn't make the cut so that makes it ok that the person in Newport got in , I don't think so their system is screwed up

    I don't want to discourage anyone I make my own decisions as I'm sure others here do the same .

    Do what you gotta do if not we can all just try CCRI again and see what happens but I honestly mentally don't think I can go through it all again it was too much for me to handle
