    Hey Lucas, I made a Fall 2012 thread if you want to join the conversation :-)

    Good call, Lily. Actually after talking to the nursing coordinator in Tucson, I realized I haven't completed all the required credits for the Cultural Diversity and Human Asthetics blah blah. Anyways I'm pretty bummed because I definitely won't be starting in the Fall. . But I am still going to take the KAPLAN and re-apply in October.

    Can't you take CU during the summer? They allow you to apply with classes in progress.. as long as you complete it by the Fall. I'm still taking that stuff myself. Good luck anyway!

    Thanks yeah I'll be taking some in summer but I won't get them all completed. Oh well! That's how it goes I guess

    Hi everybody!
    So I was wondering, I can't find that Fall 2012 thread... can anyone give me a link? I'm up here in Oregon, I'm really hoping for NAU acceptance! Anyone know when we hear from them?

    Hi everyone!

    I just took the Kaplan this morning, I am applying for the Flagstaff campus for the second time. I was hoping that others could post their science section scores on here so we can get an idea of how our scores compare to each other? I got an 82% overall and a 60% on the science section.

    I am planning to take the Kaplan tomorrow. Trying to apply for the Tucson campus for the spring 2013. Nervous, hope I do awesome! Any advise on what to expect from the test?

    Use the Kaplan study guide book. It kind of helped me with the testing style. Other than that, know your physiology and fractions/conversions!

    It's really one of those exams that is difficult to study for since you don't know what they'll throw at you.

    I finally tuck the Kaplan and was not happy with my score I really struggled with the vocabulary and reading part I was so worried about the time that I was not focused I guess I needed to relax.The science was the part I focused on and did ok 75 but I really felt I should have been in the high 90s but I guess I will have to try again and relax more during the exam. I just feel so much pressure to do well I go crazy with fear I always get nervous for exams but even more when they hold so much power over my future I really want a high overall on the Kaplan since it's so competitive to get in at NAU. Feel like maybe the Kaplan will be the wall that stops me from getting into nursing school. I finished all the pre-reqs and just trying to pass the Kaplan to get in to nursing school have a 3.25 GPA any advice on what kind of score I should have for the Kaplan to get accepted at NAU Tucson?

    They look at your science and overall score.
    The cutoff is minimum 60 on the science and 70 overall.

    I didn't do too well on the Kaplan either. I also received a 75 on the science portion. My gpa was 3.7 and I was #4 on the alternate list.

    This semester they called at least 6 alternates that I am sure of. Possible more.
    Keep your fingers crossed, usually there are less people who apply for the Spring semester. I wouldn't lose all hope if I were you.
