Bellevue College 2012 hopefuls - page 9

Hello everyone, I have just applied to Bellevue College for Fall 2012/Winter 2013 and I just want to hear from anyone who has also applied there. What are your TEAS scores? Do you guys know when... Read More

    Maybe even look over the TEAS study guide -ick I thought I was done with that book forever!- at the parts that relate to essays.

    Additionally, go to COMPASS | COMPASS Writing Essay Test (e-Write) | ACT. It looks like it has some helpful information. I hope we all get in fall and winter!

    Has anyone been told to schedule yet?

    I think what is going to happen is this.........

    -we are going to receive the letters and if the letter is an acceptance letter, we have to take the test.
    -if we don't pass the test, someone off the waiting list gets the spot

    just my 2 cents, but it seems as if that is something they would do.

    just like with the CNA, if you don't go through the class, someone off the waiting list will get the spot.

    That makes sense, Fishgirl. But if that is the case, then I'm assuming that we won't get our letters until about the same time as the cohort last year got theirs (which was towards the last week of April), which probably means that we will be scheduled to take the E-write towards the beginning of May.

    But then again, this is just conjecture on my part

    Nothing yet.... sadly, I think we have a few weeks to go. Will there be letters to all who applied, even if they/we don't get in, or just to those who either got in or made it to waiting list status?

    I would imagine everyone gets a letter. Afterall it was a very long process to even apply, it is the least they could do to let us know :icon_roll
    I am getting nervous of the mail man now...........two last weeks of April are the NEXT TWO WEEKS!

    I have a feeling it will be emails first then letters but I could be wrong.
    Two weeks... we can hold out that long... right?

    also, we can schedule our own E-Write, they don't need to schedule it for us. BCC has it as an ongoing assesment on campus. I just don't want to take it unless I made it in I guess.

    I reread last years thread and I think it will be letters first.
  10. by   Fishgirl1983
    yeah, i think it will be letters too. They have made a ton of changes to the application for the next application period! I looked at it recently and for the next one they want you to take the E-Write before even applying. I think that will make their decision process a bit quicker in the future.

    Yeah, I'm not sure why they didn't have us take it before turning in the application. That would have made more sense.
    I doubt anyone does bad, but it would hurt to be accepted then turned away because you did poorly on the test.

    They probably didn't do it first this year so that people who don't get in don't have to take an extra test (more money) that other schools don't require. Plus then they only have to look at 50 or 60 instead of 215. However, I wish I had already taken it so it would be one less thing to worry about!

    jammin I like your reasoning Although I don't think they care about how much money we have spent just to apply. I dropped so much money on getting titers, TEAS tests, TEAS study guides, back ground check.....yetta yetta yetta........I really would have rather them save the injections/titers for the people who get in and I would rather pay $15 to take the
    E-Write right off the bet. But oh well, it is what it is I guess...
    I am thinking that they would have the 72 people who are in take the test (36 fall 36 winter) and I am thinking that people on the waiting list have to take it as well. I am guessing the waiting list is 30 people or so.......just speculation....I am bored :zzzzz
