Almost There

As the semester winds down & final exams loom ever nearer,I've come to the realization that I don't care two beans about being accepted into Big State School's BSN program & would much rather do the community collage thing. It's cheaper,it's nearer,& it's much friendlier to my overall health.Of course,the soul two determinants on that are A.county residency and B.GPA.They go down the list of applicants and pick the top acheivers.Based on previous years,I'd probably make it in but not if there are 15 more people like my overacheiver,A+,taking 13+ credits classmate.One just never knows.All I can do is survive the next 18 days...and wait for the aftermath.There's an endocrine/reproductive exam,my presentation,a cumulative final,and a CPR refresher course to finish things up.It's hard to believe that I'm really there,that I've survived two semesters of anatomy,a boatload of psych courses,microbiology,chemistry,
two math courses,and a million other courses that I've been working on for the past ten years(while working FT).It's hard to believe that it's really all done,that I can actually go to a degree program now.If I don't get in this fall,I'll just apply again,maybe take a course to improve my gpa slightly & beef up the resume,etc.I just don't feel like I can commute two hours a day to do that other program.It'll be hard enough.

Way to go Heidi - just doing school along with everything else going on in life is a big deal in my eyes, so I'm very proud of you!
