Started a new thread, since the other threads on this topic look like they are from last year.
I just got my acceptance letter in the mail today!!
I was going totally mental with anxiety, checking this board several times a day to see when people were hearing back, compared to when they had applied and what their stats were. I was also very nervous about how I had done on the TEAS, so I wanted to post my info to help other people a little. Here are my stats:
I applied to the school January 4th, 2010. I took the TEAS January 23rd, 2010.
Previous BA degree in anthropology. I graduate in August of 2009 with a 3.46
I took A&P I last fall, at Gateway: B
Developmental Psych: A
(mean national was 72.8% and the mean for the program 73.3%)
My adjusted individual scores were as follows:
In all my nervousness, I called two days ago and was told that I would likely hear back from the in school 4-6 weeks. Then I got my letter today, February 5th. For the record, my admissions essay was based on a CNA training course I took in the fall and I also think that having a previous BA really helped, especially in seeing past that nasty 70% in the science section of the TEAS.
Good luck and I hope this information was helpful, or at least of interest, to some of you!!
Congrats on the acceptance!!! You must be psyched. Was BHSN your first choice? I applied in January, took the TEAS on the 26th, and am anxiously waiting to hear back. I also applied to NVCC, but I think I'd choose BHSN if given the choice. I really hope that I will be joining you in the Fall! I spoke with the admissions director a week ago, who informed me that I would hear back within 2 to 4 weeks or even possibly sooner. I get so nervous every time I go to my mailbox even though it has only been a little over a week since I was informed of the timeframe.
Thanks for listing your credentials. I feel like I have a similar background but my GPA is definitely lower than yours. I'm not quite sure what my overall GPA is since I've attending a few different schools. If I had to guess, it would be somewhere around a 3.2 but I received A's in both Chem and AP1, which I just took last semester. I already have a B.S. in Finance from a private university in CT. I scored an 83.5 on the TEAS but I'm nervous about it since I tanked on the Math section - didn't finish the section in time.
Score breakout is as follows: Reading, 97.5%; Math, 66.7%; Science 83.3%; English 85.5%
I am such a nervous wreck! What do you think my chances are given my credentials?? I really hope they don't deny me because of my low Math score on the TEAS exam. Maybe they will overlook it since I have taken 4 Math classes as part of my undergrad degree, including stats, intermediate algebra and calculus. I wonder how many people have been accepted already.
Well, wish me luck!!! I'll let you know when I find out. Also, congrats again on the acceptance. That is quite an accomplishment in itself!
