I know that has to be a disappointment, but don't allow it to discourage you. The people that succeed in life are those who take disappointments and turn them into motivation. You can make it if you persevere!:heartbeat:heartbeat:heartbeat

Many are not accepted due to the small class size and the highly competitive nature of the program. You have time over the next couple of quarters to retake the NLN for a higher score, or retake any classes that are reviewed for competitive selection to improve your scores. Take advantage of the mock interview, even if you did it last time. There is always room for improvement. Then, try again for the July 1 selection. Good luck, and hang in there!!!

Don't be discouraged. I know it's disappointing, but make the best of it! Use this time to improve anywhere that you can, and also if you have any other required classes to complete that were not part competitive selection. Also, if I were you, I'd use the extra time to save up money and just enjoy your summer. This extra time could be perfect to get a lot accomplished, so just look at all of the positives. I'm not just saying this because I made it in, but this is how I had planned to look at the situation had I not gotten accepted. Trust me everything happens for a reason, so look at it like that....what's meant to be will be, maybe just not on your timing. Also, words are powerful, so speak it into existence. Just keep trying...you'll make it. :redbeathe:redbeathe:redbeathe

I will be applying for WCTC in July for the Fall acceptance.

Kisha, keep hanging in there and try again. I have heard many of the schools are highly competitive and they have to turn alot of students down due to the class sizes v. # of applicants.

I am re-taking A & P I right now to improve my GPA on the required pre-reqs so I hope that is going to help my application. I got a C last time I took it due to not being able to take the final cause I was deployed and missed the deadline due to no internet.

Take care and God Bless

I'm currently a student at WGTC and plan on applying in July if I don't get accepted into the summer program at Columbus Tech. I applied at Columbus to increase my chances of getting into one of the programs in the area since it is so competitive.

Kisha, as others have mentioned, keep trying! :)

I am applying for the RN program in April, for anyone that got in how was the interview? And how high did you have to get on the NLN?? I have A's in my core classes, but I am getting the feeling the NLN is what really matters not my grades.

Hi - I can't really give you any information on the interview as I haven't gotten to that point yet. The NLN accounts for 50% of your score for selection process, so it is important to get it as high as you can, but your grades are very important as well and you should be very proud of your 4.0! Good luck with the April selections!

Thanks, it was very hard getting a 4.0 especially since I am pregnant, my biggest fear now is the NLN, I am taking BIO2117, SPC, PSY2103 April term. I am hoping that someone that had the interview can give me pointers on what to expect also how high did they score on NLN and still got accepted into program.

Try not to stress too much about the NLN. You will do great on it. Have you gotten any study guides? I used the one published by the NLN and it really did help a lot.

While browsing this website a while ago, I came across this thread that was started by the folks that applied last year at WGTC. It gives their perspective on the interview process. This group has a couple of threads that they posted last year that gives a lot of information about their whole experience with the process at WGTC. I hope this helps.
