So today I had my "Orientation meeting" which really wasn't an acceptance persay, more of a 'this is what the program entails'
It wasn't bad. A few of my concerns were disproved by the end, so here are my observations.
1. There were around 60-70 people in the room that I estimated. There was a second meeting that would have started ten minutes ago so I figure another 60-70 there. All together that means somewhere in the ballpark of 120-140 or so applicants made it this far. There are 95 spots open for Fall. Average points total from the people I asked around me matched mine pretty well. Hopefully this means I will get in.
2. The lady next to me was obnoxiously loud...and very pregnant. 5-6 months I think she said. She kept going on about how hard it was going to be raising a 2 month old and doing the program, and I was about ready to tell her off...We all have difficulties, you chose yours knowing you were doing this. Don't try to make me feel bad about it.
3. They will not take my HESI score. Oh well. I will take it again sometime in April, and have to schedule it sometime Monday-Wednesday next week. And I scored an 85% overall too....shame. However they won't require me to take the Physics/Chemistry portion, so Glee!(I'm horrid at Chem....never learned it properly in high school due to the chemistry teacher spending most of his time cycling between flirting with the cheerleaders and making the rest of the ladies cry.)
4. LOOK WHAT I GOT IN THE MAIL TODAY!
It's starting to hit me now....this is actually happening! So very excited!
