It's so nice to find others applying to NAU! I also applied for the this Summer, fingers crossed! I hate the waiting game, but time is actually going quicker then I thought it would. Only two to four more weeks to go... eek!!
Yes, I live about an hour away. I have a pretty solid GPA(3.8), but my Kaplan was 79. I am not holding my breath at this point, but who knows how it will all shake out. My healthcare/volunteer experience is my best asset, but I don't think they put too much stock in that. How about you?
I have two B's and the rest A's for my prereqs. I also got a 79% on my Kaplan, I did really good on all sections but the writing sunk me with a 65%, eek! It was a hard test... I also have been volunteering and job shadowing at the local hospital here, so hopefully that at least helps a little? My first GPA wasn't very impressive but hopefully with my prerec grades it will show that I'm really ready to be back in school. Did you apply anywhere else?
Jamthomps, sounds like we are in the same boat. I haven't applied elsewhere, but have kicked around Grand Canyon as an option. I cannot go out of state as I have 6 children(1 foster child who will be going home in a few months) and my husband has a career in our hometown. NAU is my best option and I am scared to death that I won't get in after all the work. I was physically ill to take the Kaplan, nerves got to me big time. I agree that the Writing sucked! I thought I did fine on the Writing and was surprised to see how low my score was on this section. It is really tough to think my application hinges on one exam. Have you applied anywhere else?
I totally know how you feel about the test, I was a complete nervous wreck! Wow! That's awesome that you are pursuing school with that many children, you must be a super multitasker! I am lucky in that I'm in a situation that allows me to move just about anywhere, I do have a dog and bf but both are willing to come with me wherever I get in. I did apply to a few other schools, two instate; Linfield and OHSU and besides NAU I applied to MCPHS in New Hampshire and University of Utah. All over the country :-D
If it was up to me I would go to OHSU for sure. It is a great school and it's close to my family which would be helpful. But I would be overjoyed to be accepted anywhere! I feel confident most of the time, but sometimes I am just so nervous! But I've worked really hard, so if I don't make it this round I'll just keep trying until I do
I thought I would pop in and say hi. I am currently an NAU accelerated student, getting ready to graduate in May. If anyone has any questions, let me know, I'll do my best to answer. Good luck to everyone waiting.
