    out of curiosity, does the acceptance letter state a date by which one needs to confirm they are attending the school?

    Mao, yeah, the letter includes an "intent to enroll" form that you have to send in by November 15, along with a checklist of other things you need to do by specific dates: fingerprinting, background check (both done by the same company I think), and immunization form. The letter also states that we'll receive more info on actual registration by late November, and dates for orientation are January 6-8.
    Congrats Lindsey and welcome to the board! Look forward to having you as a classmate.

    Congrats to Lindsay and Future!!!! Future, my eyes started to water slightly when you said that your hands were shaking while you typed!!! This year has been the most stressful year for me with this whole process---i can't wait for it to be over. I don't think i ever wanted anything this bad before. Does anyone know how many the school was accepting? Ugh,....i probably wont get my letter until next week!!!!!

    Best of luck to those still waiting!!!!

    Hey AFmed, thanks for the congrats... I believe for this term they were accepting 130 students. That's a big class, so plenty of room for you all... AFmed, why until next week? Were you the one that posted earlier that you were in Japan? Well, here's wishing you and everyone else the best. I'll be keeping my eyes glued on this board over the next few days, I'm sure we'll be seeing a lot of you with your acceptance postings! This post is going to explode in the next couple of days...

    Thanks for the positive energy future... There surly will be more excitment. Loved the idea of maybe meeting everyone before orientation... Guess I will cross that bridge when I come to it. Happy waiting !!!!!

    Yep,.......im the one that is sitting in Japan! Ugh.....this whole thing has been so stressful. And to think this whole time i was expecting to hear something early to mid October! ha! 130 is a Big class! Wow, everyone who gets accepted from this forum needs to have some sort of way of identifying themselves....so you all can meet up at orientation. Maybe everyone here can wear a certain color shirt---or something. Ok,....well i have the entire weekend now to sit and read all of your happy postings!! Congrats to you all. Can't wait until next week to get my mail!!! I hope it is good mail.

    Future, I totally understand when you said your hands were shaking...when I opened my mailbox today , my heart beat so hard that i was like " am I getting a heart attack?"

    I am still waiting..but no matter accepted or not. I want to say thank you to all of you. This is a great place to share opinions, feelings, and worries. We've been through a tough year and the waiting game is finally over. Whatever the life path, I am sure you all will be great nurses!! RN rockssssssss
