I guess I will meet him everyday at the mailbox until I hear something. Maybe they mailed the letters out today. I hope so. Thank you so much for letting us know about the orientation date. That makes me so excited!

Apr 14, '07Joined: Jan '07; Posts: 29; Likes: 1Congratulations!!!! I want to check my mailbox but I'm so nervous..how were the statistics???? Did the lowest graded student have a 4.0 GPA for prereqs?
Apr 14, '07Joined: Jan '06; Posts: 103; Likes: 14.0 will get you in!
The lowest GPA for pre-reqs at El Centro was 3.54, and for Northlake it was 3.69. What HPRS 1204 are you enrolled in?
Apr 14, '07Joined: Jan '07; Posts: 29; Likes: 1I checked my mail and I'm accepted! I'll be going to Northlake. Oh my gosh uniforms are $80.
Apr 14, '07Joined: Jan '06; Posts: 103; Likes: 1Congrats Sejin!!!! Aren't you glad the wait is over! I am actually not even sure if I will be accepting or not. I am still debating on whether to just finish up my last 9 classes for the BSN and apply to TWU for next Fall. I am not impressed with the dropout/fail rate at ECC. As well as the 78-83 being a C! Kinda nutty.
Not to mention that me and the hubby just got surprised with an unexpected pregnancy! Argh! That's the real reason I may just wait it out and take the remaining BSN classes. What to do, what to do???? My head is spinning.

70-80 students getting Cs??

Something I read in another post:
Another big factor you need to look at regarding the schools - ECC's passing grade is 78 and above; therefore, 78-83 is a "C", 84-89 is a "B" and 90-100 is an "A". This is important if you want your BSN later and are concerned with GPA. At other schools 70 and above is passing. Most of the BSN schools look at the GPA when deciding on admissions, and, according to their grading a "C" is 70-79. But if you go to ECC and your final grade in a particular class is an 83 (a "B" by UT or TWU standards) your transcript from ECC will reflect a "C", giving you a lower GPA, and the other schools will never know that according to their standards your grade would be different!!
