Rejection doesn’t hit me hard when I expect it. I’m sure many of you can relate.
March 2013, I applied to Nursing school
Mid May 2013, I was flat out rejected- but I expected it because my TEAS score was below expected average. I was a little sad, but I got over it rather quickly.
June 6, 2013- and opportunity arose due to my school being elected to implement a special partnership program with the Veterans Administration Health Care System that would allow them to increase enrollment by 20 students in the Traditional Prelicensure BSN program for fall 2013.
I was asked if I wanted to be considered for this opportunity. Naturally, I said yes and I applied. However, I did not believe I would get in- I simply applied “just cuz.”
Consequently I was very surprised to read my acceptance letter on July 1.
Yes, I was very very happy- In fact I was so happy that I could not believe it. I just kept thinking it was too good to be true and I would receive an email saying “Oh sorry, that wasn’t meant for you.” I made my sister read it just to make sure I was not mistaken. I screamed, I almost cried and I smiled for days.
A previous post spoke about graduation & so I had to apply for readmission. I completed everything that needed to be done in order to secure a spot for the Nursing program.
Yesterday to my grand surprise I found that my application was processed as Fall 2014, and not 2013. I called the admissions office and they said that I could only email and wait for a response.
I sent out an email yesterday at 4:30 pm that asked to decline my application for fall 2014 so that I may reapply for fall 2013. I have waited exactly 12 hours already and I am wearing thin to the core.
Note: (I will be calling them shortly after I finish this post).
The reason I have no patience is because the lady in the phone told me my chances of being “readmitted” would be slim…which is ridiculous since I have been accepted into their nursing program right?! Anyhow, I freaked out of course almost down to tears.
Now, after 3 movies, I am feeling much better. I am still a little upset with my mix up but I have decided to not super stress about it because whats going to happen will happen.
If my university ( which I love) refuses to readmit me, yes- I will cry, but like one of my best friends told me…I’m going to be a Nurse one way or another.”
I am mostly angry with myself because I thought this last minute VA thing was sort of like a miracle because I was able to get a spot, and now I possibly ruined this chance by being careless.
Anyhow, I still think I have a shot of getting in…even if the chances of being readmitted this late in the year are slim.
Wish me luck guys =)
