When it rains...

It's been raining a lot here, lately.

Both literally and figuratively.

Yesterday, I received the letter I've been waiting for.

THE letter.

It was bad news.

I don't know why they send you this big, long rejection letter...I stopped reading at, "We regret to inform you...."

They could've saved their ink.

So, what now?

The earliest I could possibly start school, if I'm accepted during the next application period, is Fall of 2010. FALL OF 20-FUCKING-10!

That's a year from now.

Another fucking year!!

I have a lot of emotion tied into this endeavor of mine. I guess because the nursing seed was planted while I was caring for Joey. That's probably not a good thing.

I don't know.

I do know that when it rains, it pours....

I received that same letter for the radiology program. Isn't it nice how they can determine what happens with your life!I'm an older student,and I don't have the rest of my life to keep applying, so I know exactly how you feel. All I can say is keep your head up, and try again next year. Good Luck! I know it sucks. sorry...

Well, Like I already told you, photography is something else you should seriously consider! You have such a great eye and I know I would pay you to take pics! Maybe until you get accepted you could get your own business started in photography? Start considering other options and don't dwell on the bad news you got. Jeremy could help you get a web site going w/pics you have already taken. There's lots to do that would be exciting!

BTW, what happened to your other comment system you had?

Again, I'm sorry, that really sucks! They don't know what they're missing out on. I got denied for Pharmacy school because of 1 stinking grade in O-Chem. They wouldn't even give me an interview. Instead they went solely by transcripts and a bunch of people who couldn't even speak English made it into the program. Someone should tell them you have to actually TALK TO PATIENTS!!! You'll get in next time. Is there any classes you can take in the mean time?

I'm so sorry! I agree with Jes though. You do have a great eye! Something to consider :o)

Keep your head up and try to stay positive. Everything happens for a reason. It may be hard, but the sun WILL shine again.

Aww, sorry to hear that. The same exact thing happen to me as well. I got my letter in the spring time saying that I'm in the nursing class of fall 2010 because there was no room at all for this fall. They try to get hopes up saying how spots may open. My number did go up but not enough to have a seat for this fall. I freaking applied last Christmas too. I just want to get on with my life, ya know what I mean!! We want more babies (we have two little ones) but I really don't want to have three kiddos while in the nursing program since they are so young and still super needy. And I don't want to give birth in the middle of a semester again! Sorry for the novel, I just feel your pain!

Sorry you've had such a crummy week. I hope this next one is better. Keep your head up!

Gosh that sucks. I feel your pain. I only need 2 measly classes to apply next year but they are both science classes & I just don't see me taking 2 science classes (both w/lab) at once. So b/c the schools here only accept one time a year, that means I will have to wait until 2011!!!!!!!!!! I feel your pain & I am sorry, it sucks!!
