Chamberlain Sac May 2017

  1. Hello All,
    I am starting a thread for those applying to Chamberlain for the class that starts May 2017. What does your GPA and HESI scores look like?? I have a 3.72 GPA and will be taking the HESI for the first time tomorrow morning. I am a little nervous on what to expect.

    Please let us know how it goes. I'm taking the HESI on Tuesday. I'm nervous bc it has been about 3 years since I took the prerequisites at Yuba college. I've since moved to Texas and am applying to Chamberlain's May 17 start date but will most likely be moving back to Sac/Roseville area once I'm done with school.

    Hey! I took the HESI today and got a 93% overall. It was much more basic than I expected! I just used the Admission Exam review book and looked over each section and did the practice problem and it was a breeze. The HESI was much easier than the TEAS in my opinion. Good luck tomorrow!

    wow that's amazing! Congrats. I moved my test date to next Monday morning bc I'm in the middle of wrapping up my final week of a short term Calculus class that really hasn't allowed me to focus on studying for the HESI very much. Any tips ? Was it all multiple choice? What sections did they make you take and which ones did they average your overall score from? And is the study guide pretty close to what was on the exam?

    I believe you have to have you application and HESI done by the end of January. I don't know the specific deadline though. The applicants are presented to the panel on Feb. 17th.

    I did not get a print out of my score, but only because my advisor was in a meeting when I was done, I saw my scores in all the sections though. I am sure I can get a print out if I ask. Overall the test covers basic questions on the topics listed in the Review book. I found the review book to be the only thing I needed and all of my questions were discussed in the review. I actually had exact practice problems from the book on my exam. I think what causes people to get lower scores is really over preparing if that makes sense. I can see how focusing on little details can take away from focusing on the main topics mostly covered on the exam. The sections I took were Math, Reading Comprehension, Grammar, Vocabulary, Anatomy/Physiology, Biology, Chemistry and then a learning style and personality quiz. I believe you only take the science exams that you have completed a pre requisite for. The only questions that were not multiple choice were a couple of the basic math problems and on those they asked you to just type the answer and to round to a specific place(tenth, hundredth etc.). As far as the scoring, my cumulative overall score I received right after the exam was a 93%, my Chamberlain score was a little over a 94%. I don't know how Chamberlain calculates their score, but it may just be an average of the grouped categories, so Math, Language Arts and Sciences. But I'm not sure. Don't stress out and just buy the HESI Admission Assessment Exam Review 3rd or 4th edition only and STAY AWAY from Mometrix anything, I watched the Youtube videos and did some practice tests they had and they were wayyyy too in depth for the actual exam and caused me to stress out unnecessarily. Good luck and let us know how you do!

    The HESI is super easy. I used a workbook I got at Barnes and Nobles, studied for a week, and got 90s on mostly everything. And I am not a great student, either.

    I'm applying for chamberlain in May, too!

    My overall GPA is 3.08 and I received a high HESI score, something in the 90s. I am worried my GPA will hold me back, but all I can do is try. I have volunteer experience, but that's about it. My counselor is Katharine, and I will keep you updated to the process.

    OP,
    If you go to (collegescorecard.ed.gov) and look up Chamberlain you can expect to pay 30K per year in tuition excluding books and gotcha fees.
    And after you graduate you can expect.to be giving back half your paycheck to the very nice loan dude till the cows come home.

    I did my Hesi today and passed!! I didn't do as well as you with 90's in everything but my numbers were high enough I guess. After the test I spoke with the admissions rep and was told I will have an answer before the end of the month on whether I am accepted or not. From the vibe I was getting from the staff there it seems I did pretty well compared to most that take the Hesi there. I kept getting praising remarks but I am sure they are just fluffing me up to keep me interested. Either way Ill be happy to get accepted and start in May. Thanks for sharing your info it gave me a boost in confidence before taking the exam.

    Hi all,

    I am working with a counselor right now on possible May admission. She mentioned that one aspect they take into account is your "recent" academic history and is currently looking into that. I assume she mentioned this because I had taken classes years ago for a previous degree and so my transcripts are lengthy. Just wondering if anyone has anything to share on this and/or how "recent" the counselor was able to use.

    Thank you and congrats on everyone who is trying or has made it into a program- such an accomplishment :-)
