    Oh don't let me start on that Gre... I did not attend any schooling in the USA except my last year of high school so it was unfamiliar to me. I got 5.5 on my essays though and did fine on the math and the essays but some of the vocabulary was awful but I did my best so I guess I will just wait now. I tried studying 6 months for the Gre but the vocabulary words were hard to memorize since the way I spelled some of them were different from the way they are spelled or pronounced here. Anyway, we will see what happens.

    Anyone got great GRE scores?

    I am applying too. The deadline was not March 15th - that was the date starting acceptance. They will accept applicants up until May 31st per their website. I am taking the GRE AGAIN in a few days. I met the math score requirement but not the verbal. Is anyone applying with lower GRE scores than required? Anyone have any tips on the Verbal?

    Hi RachelLee :-) I am glad I studied the Kaplan Gre 800 word because I saw many of them on the GRE. Also read a lot of the Passages especially the hard ones and it will help to raise your score.

    My understanding was that the deadline is March 15, but they will accept applications on a space available basis until May 31. I emailed *********, of the FNP track when I was considering applying to that back in August and she informed me that they review applications on March 15.
    I used the princeton review books and I liked those much better than the kaplan books. I used flashcards and just memorized as many words as I could. Practice questions, practice questions!! I got 153 on math and 155 on verbal, with a 5 on the writing...i dont know how greatly they consider the GRE scores, or how well people do on it typically...i havent spoken to anyone thats taken the new one so I dont know how competitive my scores are, or what other people are scoring. Hopefully its enough for what I need.
    Anyone hear of anyone applying to the Pediatric Acute Care NP?

    I also read a thread on here from a few years ago, and there were people who didnt meet the GRE requirements and appealed it and got in

    Yes that's true some people have appealed it but you have to have string recommendations, nursing experience and meet all the other requirements they have listed. I was told its not just the Gre scores that will let them say yes. They look at the candidate as a whole. My verbal was 150 so I did actually appeal on those grounds.

    Keisha - do you apply and wait for your denial letter before doing the appeal? How does this work?

    Thank you!

    You have to request an appeal if you think there is a requirement that may get you denied and they will only let you appeal under certain circumstances. You must do the appeal before they start sending out the letters! If you need to appeal do it quickly as they start mailing letters the end of this month.

    If you wait until they make a decision they won't accept an appeal. I know this for a fact because I asked.

    No not yet but I see my profile set up with the registrar but no info that I am admitted. I did get a request for my physical to be completed on their form and submitted to the the health resources office.
