Suffolk County Community College Spring 2011 GRANT

Hello everyone. I just got my 'waitlisted' letter from SCCC today regarding the Grant campus' 2011 Spring Evening Classes for the Nursing Program. I figured we could do with a new thread for this class start date since there wasn't one and people were posting in the old ones...

Grades were:

A&P1 B+ (Retaking it now)

A&P2 A

PSY A- (Retaking it now)

ENG A

GPA ~3.76

Micro: Taking it now

Petrified I won't get in, the rest of the 23 year old life hinges on my getting in. Or applying to other schools.... but still, would rather go here.

Anyone have *ANY* info? Share GPA, application status, etc?

Having scoured these forums before I noticed that a fair hunk of people that get waitlisted (with decent grades) later get in, but because the low class size of Grant Evenings I don't think it'll be the case, plus, I could be 500 on the list...

Hi,

Just got my waitlist letter are well for Spring 2011

Psych A

AP1 A

Ap2 A

Eng B+

Micro (taking it now)

I wonder how long before we know for sure if a spot opens up?

I was accepted into the evening program for 2011!!

My grades were the following:

Psych A

AP1 A

APII A

ENG B+

I am currently taking micro,

I hope it works out well for u guys :)

Thanks for the simple breakdown of your grades and congrats :) And needless to say I'm pleased that your grades are *similar* to mine :) lol

I applied to both Grant's evening program and Ammerman's day program for LPN to RN advanced placement. I haven't gotten any letter regarding waitlist, acceptance or denial from either program. It's torture at this point. I'm glad at least some letters are going out already though, and congrats to JCGC 13. I can only hope that my letter will be in the mail soon!

I have a 4.0 gpa and I'm taking micro right now.

I applied and got into the 2011 Evening program at Grant. I had all "A"s for the prerequisites, and I am currently taking micro right now. Also I have all the nonnursing courses finished (transferred from a previous college). I was told I didn't need anything other than 4 prereqs, but I had heard such horror stories of getting accepted, I also turned in a letter of recommendation and a personal letter.

I wish I knew the whole "acceptance" process that Suffolk has, I have heard of students with straight "A"s not getting accepted...so the whole thing is a mystery to me!

Does anyone know how many applied and how many got accepted into the evening program?

:):)

Congrats on getting into the program! I was told by admissions to not bother with letters of recommendation, that they didn't even look at them. As far as what I need to graduate, minus the nursing courses, I have everything but PE, and Micro and Developmental Psych are in progress. If all goes well (and so far it is going well-fingers crossed) I should walk away with A's in both of those classes.

I'm sure that someone knows what the acceptance process entails. Unfortunately, we'll never be privy to it. You could probably ask Admissions about how many applied to the evening program. As far as how many were accepted, you can check online to see how many seats are available in the Nursing Fundamentals classes.

9:59 am Received phonecall from Admissions letting me know my # in waitlist came up. Was told my official letter would be coming soon in the mail, and about orientation in December with other stuff to follow that.

BTW anybody that transferred in an A- in anything -- it gets rounded to an A. She was telling me that nobody could figure out why I was retaking Psychology (Where I had an A-) So we had a good laugh about that :p

And now I get to drop my retaking of Psychology *AND* A&P1! Literally: Happiest day of my life so far. I hope many other people 'round here got or will be getting a phonecall some time soon :D

Congrats, Ducexcrew! I hope that I will get the same kind of phone call too. I guess I shouldn't give up hope after all.

Not trying to highjack your thread, but I have a question, maybe someone knows something about this... I have completed AP1 & 2, and Psy 101 - ALL A's. Taking Eng 101 and Microbio now, shouldn't be a problem, BUT - I went to the info session for the nursing program a month or so ago, and I was told that out of county applicants have no chance of getting into the program, even with a 4.0 (!) GPA. Does anyone know if there's any truth to this? I live in Brooklyn but go to school here in SCCC and also work in Suffolk County. Thanks.

Ouch. Sorry but I really don't know. I haven't met anyone from out of county but I haven't exactly been asking "Hey where do you live?" lol. Best of luck to you though -- but if you have A's in everything what about the Nassau program? Or is there a Brooklyn community college for you? I'm rather ignorant on *all* things outside of suffolk (and *most* things *in* suffolk :))

Is this true?????

Hey! I don't know if this is true or not, I personally have never heard about something like this. I would recommend calling/emailing someone within the nursing department. Kathleen Burger is one of the heads of the department, and she is super nice, I would shoot her off an email!

Hope this helps!

yea, they MOST LIKELY will not accept anyone outside of Suffolk County. I suggest for those that do not live in Suffolk County area to find someone that lives in there and use their address for mailing.

I just met somebody who claims to be from Queens. However, that's not to say they did not do the above hijacking of mailing address trick.

THey do accept people not from Suffolk...there are two people currently in my Fundamentals class that drive all the way from Queens for school

I took 4 semesters at Farmingdale and finished every class that I would eventually need to get my nursing degree besides the NUR classes plus a little extra. I applied to Suffolk and Nassau and got into both for fall 2011, I didnt get into Farmingdales. My GPA was a 3.6. I think my transcript showed that I was a well-rounded student that did consistently well. As long as your GPA is in the 3's you have a shot. I'm sure everyone with a 4.0 got first dibs. Good luck to everyone and I hope to see some people in the fall at Suffolk. :D

MReinold- Congrats on your acceptances!!! was your gpa of 3.6 in the four classes for suffolk: AP 1 AP2 psych and Eng? Or is that your overall gpa for everything? Sorry to be so nosy, just curoius and trying to get a feel forgpa cutoff! When did you get your letter?
