    Good Morning Everyone,
    I just took my TEAS/Essay yesterday and I scored the following? I don't know if I did good. I was supposed to take it on June 6 but they cancelled that class and I only had 1 day to study since I thought I would have more time to study after my last final.

    Adjusted Individual Total Score: 80.6%
    Mean - National 74.4%
    Mean - Program 78.7%
    Percentile Rank - National: 70
    Percentile Rank - Program: 55

    How is this computed in getting into the program? They are only waiting on one more transcript but my GPA is borderline by 0.056 so I don't know if they will let my application through or have to take one more class to bring up GPA. Can anyone tell me what to expect as far as the application process? I applied for the January 2010 cohort but I don't think on top of GPA and over 86 people applying for 50-60 spots? Feedback anyone???

    I am working towards applying to NU as well. I just graduated today with my AA in Health Science Technology from Coastline. I am stationed in Naples, Italy at the moment so I won't apply until later to get in the July 2010 class. SD will be our next duty station if all goes well. I have had good contacts at NU since I started researching schools. I am very interested in NU or CalState San Marcos. Only problem with NU is they don't participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program with the VA and I am prior military using my MGIB for Post 9/11. So I will still end up having to come out of pocket. If I can get into CalState then I won't have to pay for anything but books. But we will see.

    Well congrats to all who have graduated.

    Welcome Neshia :wlcmblks: and I would like to say for your service to our country. What branch are your in? Wow, Naples, Italy....I hope to go there someday. Anyways, NU is a great school since you can get through the nursing program much quicker than San Marcos and not such a long waiting period too. BUT, money is an issue too. Either way, I just want to say welcome and that this board has a wealth of info. so ask any question you may have and someone will have the answer. Good luck!

    I went to NU on friday and talked to Admissions. I asked them if they will accept my A/P from my smart transcript as being an Hospital Corpsman in the Navy. They couldn't give me a direct answer if they do. Has any Hospital Corpsman had there A/P credits count? Also I was wondering which G.I. Bill would work better to attend NU. The Chapter 30 Montgomery Bill or the Post 9/11 G.I. Bill?
