    I think 25 makes for a strong application. Is anyone enrolled in HPRS 2 at el centro I lucked out and got in today I'm pretty darn excited. I need to take cpr this week and I'm done, I decided not to retake hesi my application will just have to do the way that it stands.

    Question about the physical.... Did you get an eye exam also or did they just leave that part blank ?

    Hi Yankees77,

    I got an eye exam from the MA at my doctor's office when I went for my physical.

    Yank I had it done too by the doc. I just got my 5 year science course waiver granted today so I'm super excited. But I think they lost my transcripts to do my education plan. sucks. I think they'll get it straightened out this week prayerfully. Glad to hear everyones getting all their ducks in a row :-)

    Thanks Morgan !! I called the Dr & they let me come back as take the standard test. As Iong as your transcript is on file & dcccd has already given you credit, you shouldn't need the Ed plan.

    so I go to print my health form yesterday to get all the necessary signatures after messing the initial one up to notice the form up as of yesterday requires 7 immunizations instead of 6. They added at some point the flu shot which is required on the ap. Am I the last to know? So here I am about to go and get a flu shot before I run down to El centro. Did anyone else notice the change or am I the last to know?

    Thank goodness you noticed! I got a flu shot at the Dallas County health dept a couple of weeks ago. i tried to get one about 6 weeks ago and the health dept told me they were out and wouldnt be getting any until the end of August. Luckily I was there for another vaccine and they had signs posted that they had flu shots.

    I was so shocked lol. I ended up mailing in my application certified mail. I'm just glad to get it in ..... So stressful. I was approved for math substitution and the five year course waiver but never received anything in the mail to put with my application. I guess I'll follow up in about a week to see how that works . Any clues on what the cutoff score may be. I'm thinking 21 or 22.

    I felt a sense of relief just for getting the application completed and turned in. I hope the cutoff is 21 or 22 because I have 22 points, but Im not sure. I dont know many people that are applying. The people I know have less points than me because they found out too late about the the bsn courses and they hadnt taken any.

    My understanding was that the apps for spring are not as high as for fall. Even in my Hprs II class I am the only person appling for spring everyone else is radiology. I think that Fall is just more appealing to people. I was even told that Northlake usually accepts the lower scores because of the majority of the applicant pool wanting elcentro. I really prefer northlake just becaus e it's close to my home. I don't want to commute or do the train thing but hey if they say I'm in I will. Can't wait until October 31st gets here! In the meantime I get to stress out and put my app for TVCC together!

    So elcentro received only around 300 applications for spring 2013 for 120 slots . Good for us :-)) I think normally they receive double that amount.
