    hey nyc28, i did notice that there were a lot more posts last year too, but they didn't really start posting until almost a week before they got their letters. i bet this thread is going to blow up around the same time. i spoke with an adviser at mec not too long ago and she said the first thing nvcc will look at is the teas, the gpa and then whether or not you currently hold a bachelors. apparently you get a certain amount of points for each one and then you're ranked. doesn't matter if your packet comes first or last you're still ranked accordingly; thank god because my packet is going in literally a week before the deadline haha. you did great on your teas so don't worry

    @ TrulyBlessed1 wow thank you for the info that def helped me relax although I'm still so nervous. But I assume everyone is at this point.

    TrulyBlessed1 - Did you get your packet in yet? Keep us posted!

    ncy28 - We're definitely in the same boat. Sooooo nervous!

    I'm also expecting to see traffic on this thread buid up as time goes by. Either that, or a new one started.

    It's nice knowing there are others going through this 'nervous stage' with me. It would be great to have some 'friends' already when we get accepted!

    Think positive! I'll be seeing you guys this fall at orientation!!!

    I wish they had something like the Domino's online pizza tracker: You can check the progress on your pizza, from when the order is placed to when it is ready for delivery. Wouldn't that be great? I think my application would be at either "Bake" or the "quality check" stage, one more step until its "out for delivery"!

    @marm ite75 haha i like the pizza idea. I wonder if there will be just as m any applicants this year as there were last year. im hoping everyone that applies will join this thread.

    Thanks ncy28, need to find some comic relief! I am sure this thread will get more attention around the end of this month and early June.

    I just sent off my application today. Had taken my TEAS yesterday after struggling with the English grammar portion of the test. It was seriously about to give me an ulcer because I was struggling with it so much. But was able to pass with an 80% (phew!). I wonder if being a guy gives me a slight advantage or not. Regardless I'm currently holding a 4.0GPA so I think I should be alright, but still a little worried until I get that letter in!

    Any other guys applying?

    Hey everybody,...I just submit my application for the Fall 2012 traditional nursing program. I'm sooooo nervous...right along with the rest of you. I struggled on the new TEAS test but was blessed by GOD to pass on my final try (only get 3 chances). I really really really hope and pray I get in this semester...I've taken all the required pre-reqs and only have HLT 250 Pharmalogy (which I'm taking this summer) outside of the nursing courses. Best wishes and prayers for everyone...lets keep everyone posted.

    Hi everyone! I'm thankful to have found this thread. I was looking through the different threads that pertained to NVCC and many of them were from years ago. I have applied to the Traditional track and I'm now waiting anxiously. I'm a nervous wreck because I wonder how I'll stack up against everyone else who applied. I'm also a little nervous that there will be many more applicants for the Traditional track since Momentum 2+1 was suspended. Any thoughts or feelings on that? I did ok on my TEAS test, my pre-req's had good grades, and my gpa is ok. Not as high as I'd like it because of some previous classes but it is what it is. Good luck with everyone! I'm not sure my nerves will be able to take the wait!!

    Hey everyone, I finally sent off my packet on May 8th as soon as my Micro grade posted..I was a little nervous that I wouldn't make it on time, but thank God everything worked out. Like most of you I have a few questions about the letter of receipt from the Nursing Division (as mentioned in the nursing application package) and how many spots were avaliable this year for the traditional nursing program. I was actually hoping that since the momentum program is suspended that maybe there would be more spots added to the traditional track since a whole program is now down, wishful thinking I guess lol.Anyway, I called the MEC today and had no luck whatsoever The student services rep kept repeating that letters will go out in four weeks and said there would be no letter of receipt coming and that one should tract their application package when mailing it in. I'm sure most of us did just that but I kinda wish there was still, at least, an email or something saying that they received our applications. I actually did ask how many spots were avaliable this year for the traditional program and she said they have no idea, I figured they wouldn't know but I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask anyway. I think about this application ALL day long! I really hope these four weeks go by fast. I also want to know how I stack up to the competition so here are my stats as requested:
    GPA 3.7 cumulative TEAS 86% overall. I think Chamberlain school of nursing in Arlington is my #2 choice as well aj123
    All co reqs done except HUM elective. I feel like today the real count down begins, happy thoughts everyone
