    Those are awesome stats, Louise. Maybe we will be classmates! My Teas, were not good though, 76, I am retaking them in January. If I had your score, I would be so happy Have you take computer applications or did you test out it? What have you heard about that test if anything?

    So everyone keeps posting their stats and it worries me because mine are much worse I think my only way of getting in this year is if i get chosen by random selection.

    Don't worry July, I have been there. The only reason my Gpa is higher is due to the new way of only counting certain classes. My stats have not always been good. The lottery process is really good too, plus once you are in it won't matter how you got there. It's like in high school and you work so hard, but two years out and not many remember what you got. Our stats are merely numbers and not a true reflection of you could be as a nurse. Don't be afraid to post your stats either, most are not judgemental, but trying to just be helpful No matter what keep plugging away until you get there.

    Thanks for the encouragement toonsis Right now my gpa is a 2.4 because in my first semester i got a D in Math 136 and in my second semester i got a C+ in english 102 and psych. So this semester I'm retaking math and so far I have an A-. I'm also taking A&P for the second time (dropped it my first semester) and right now I have a 79.38. But when my teacher drops our lowest test grade, it will be higher. As long as I do well on our 4th exam and the final.

    I took the teas test last month. I couldn't really study for it because I'm always studying for A&P or math. So I scored a 67.3. But, I'm taking it again in January and i have the ati study manual. So I hope i can score in the 80's to make myself more competitive.

    July, you are getting there! I am taking the computer applications test next Friday too. I might run into you, mine is at 12pm.The best thing is that every time your retake the classes, they only count the new grade.Have you looked in the Bridgeport hospital program at all? They look at your whole picture, not just grades and test score. I have heard good things. Also, the technical high schools offer lpn programs, which are pretty affordable, and the application process isn't so difficult.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I don't really want to be an lpn. Bridgeport Hospital only offers a Diploma in nursing and I was planning to transfer to Southern to get my RN-BSN.

    I was thinking that if I don't get in this year, I could just retake some classes and transfer to Southern. I hope I get in this year though, because my goal was to have my master's degree by age 26.

    Wow everyones stats sound competitive. Stay positive, if we dont make it in this year there is always next year. I got waitlisted last year, but i think i grew as a person and student during that time, and i wan to be a nurse even more. And thats totally right, these stats arent a true reflection of how good of a nurse you will be, or how well you do in the program.

    Toonis, Thanks. I hope so too. I really want this more than anything. I did sign up again for the teas with one of my A&P friends. We are both trying to get in this year and it would be so awesome if she did. We really study well together and could even car pool to school. She didn't do well on her first go at the teas either but with everything else going on its really hard to study for it. We are taking it in mid January when there is now school to get in the way. Good luck to everyone!

    I don't know much about the test. I took CSA 105 and it was very easy. I think if you are good with microsoft office you should do well. I was going to test out for ENG 101 because I already have ENG 102 but I was too afraid to fail. So I just took the class instead.

    Actually this isn't accurate. Bridgeport does offer a degree option for their nursing program.

    But what makes no sense is it says you need to pass the NCLEX and also enroll in their nursing program. Why would you have to enroll in their nursing program if you ARE an RN just to take a 3 credit English Lit class??

    It would make more sense just to add English Lit to the program cirruculum and make it an ADN program.
