UnPatiently Waiting on Fall 07 decisions

Greetings future nurses,

I am trying so hard to wait patiently for my school to send a letter, flare, telegram, or even a smoke signal for the Fall 07 admissions. Meanwhile, I am slowly driving family and friends crazy with my constant requests for their opinions on my chances, checking my email/school website several times a day, and even greeting the mail carrier. I have even called the school on several occassions to ask for updates. Each time I cleverly disguise my voice, so they won't know it's me. I've used Southern, Boston, Canadian, British, and a sortta Australian/Irish accents.

Today, I actually made a hateful face at the Letter carrier when she told me I didn't have any mail. She looked totally shocked and offered to lend me a bill. I laughed and informed her all about nursing school as she filled the mailboxes of my subdivision. I am not sure if she even wanted to hear my lamentations, but she couldn't leave without delivering the mail.

I really need reassurance from my fellow pre-nursing students that I am not the only half crazy and slightly neurotic student out there.

I am currently waiting on a decision from Indiana University for either the Indianapolis or Bloomington campuses. (The accelerated program recieved their letters last week.)

Greetings future nurses,

I really need reassurance from my fellow pre-nursing students that I am not the only half cray and slightly neurotic student out there.

You're not alone. I am also driving people crazy. My school said letters are going out soon. In the meantime, I have bitten my nails alsmost to the cuticle - so now my hands look like crap. Oh well, when I get the letter - either way - I can take care of my hands again.

"I have even called the school on several occassions to ask for updates. Each time I cleverly disguise my voice, so they won't know it's me. I've used Southern, Boston, Canadian, British, and a sortta Australian/Irish accents. ":lol2: :rotfl: :roll

I understand your anxiety, I also wait for the mail to be delivered everyday at 3:30 sharp & not a minute later. I am also waiting for letters from two accelerated programs for fall 07. I already have one acceptance letter from a school but its my last resort school in case I don't get in these others. But to put the icing on what you said about calling the schools, the sad part about my situation is one school just told me i won't know anything until after June 20 & im still running to the mailbox in hopes that they maybe reviewed my application early(I sent it in april) & sent out my letter:lol2:

So your definitely not alone here. Just hang in there its coming soon!

I am also stalking the mail carrier! I start checking the mail at about 11:30 every day, and check it every half hour until it comes - which is usually before four but yesterday I think it was closer to six! I'm supposed to hear by the end of THIS week, although now I don't know who said that or why I think that :lol2: . So I won't start calling at least until next week, but geez, I wish I would get the letter sooner rather than later. I will be VERY upset if I don't get in for this year, as all they would tell me was that there WERE spaces, and they hoped not to turn anyone away. Anyway, it's all very stressful. I went through the same thing waiting for a letter about a scholarship, which I didn't get . . . so this is my second go-round.

Good luck to everyone else too!

I'm in the same boat. But instead of calling and disguising my voice I have had various friends and family members call. I'm going crazy!!! Checking my mailbox twice a day (just in case the letter carrier missed it the first time and had to come back...psycho, I know). They shouldn't put people through this, I think they should post acceptances on a website or something. The wait is absolutely agonizing.:uhoh3:

I applied to Eastern Michigan U on January 2nd. What's even worse is that I have not met anyone else in the forums that knows anything about my school!

count me in as unpatiently waiting! my school doesn't send out acceptance letters until the middle of july, but i keep hoping that it will be earlier. in the mean time, i keep second guessing myself. am i smart enough to be a nurse? am i cut out to be a good nurse? will i be able to pass all of my nursing courses if i do get in? what if i hate it?

 

i have all of these questions swirling around in my head and it's driving me crazy. i'm glad that i'm not the only one feeling like this. calgon take me awaaayyyy!:uhoh21:

I haven't begun to do this although my time is cutting close. The nursing office said we wouldn't find out for Fall until the second week of July, however, some of my other fellow classmates who have applied said they would start harassing them by mid June. I'm sure once June 25th-ish roles around, I will be in the same boat as you! Good luck, I hope you get in!

Trust me if the school says the date they will send out letters add another 2 weeks to that date. :uhoh3:

I can totally relate to all of this. I put my application in 4/07 and the deadline was 5/31/07. Letters won't go out until mid July. The wait is killing me and I believe the nursing program office knows me on caller id by now. I've stopped by to speak to advisors on several occasions in hopes that I could pry some information out of them in regards to my application - does it look good, do I have a shot at it, etc. I too hope that I will get an early letter. I really don't know if I will or won't get in to the program, its a points system. I've convinced myself I have a decent shot though, but not to get my hopes up because most people don't get in the first time around. Then I get these thoughts about what if I am accepted then I am going to be able to handle the program? What about the NCLEX, will I be able to pass it? I feel like a crazy person right now.

I understand completely how everyone here feels.

Good luck to everyone!

This is also true of what I heard from my school as well. The silly part is, when you get the letter of acceptance, you have to respond by a certain date or they fill your spot, so if the mail got lost or you go on holidays you are s.o.l. I was supposed to go to Hawaii this summer but I opted out in hopes that I may have to respond to an acceptance.
