    Just did. CHM still showing as required. My grade is there.Interesting that Math class I just took to meet the new requirement is not listed as required. In fact, the degree audit shows the 3 math credits and grade as not accepted towards degree.

    My math (calc) is shown that way also,all my chemistry (gen chem 1,2, organic chem 1,2) is under that category.

    Just called them, and they messed up again on my audit.



    Im glad they got ride of the point system, it wasnt really fair to get 5 points for something you did in highschool.

    Hey guys, I just submitted my application Thursday and I was looking at the new requirements and I read that they will choose the highest GPA and Hesi scores. I knew about the GPA, but the Hesi scores is pretty new to me, I thought you just had to meet the cutoff and it was just based on points. I have a 3.5 pre-req gpa and my overall hesi is an 86.4. Hopefully that's enough to get in .

    It's really confusing right now. I don't think anyone really knows exactly how this admission review process is going to work or what the likely cut-offs will be.

    a couple of advisors told me they only look at your core area gpa. Its no longer based on a point system.

    Everything is updated onthe BC's Nursing website; and it clearly states that GPA and HESI score are the two major factors in their decision.

    How was the hesi exam experience? Just curious because I have been studying my butt off out of nervousness.

    I had to take my hesi twice. The first time I failed the vocabulary part, but made all 90's on the other subjects. I retook the vocab. portion last Friday and passed with a 90.
    The first time I studied only from the hesi review book, and read notes from my anatomy class about the endocrine system. I got a 96 on that section. if you did well on your AP classes just do a quick review, but if you don't then I suggest that you read a lot specially AP 1 and the endocrine system.
    Math is basically conversions, fractions, ration....if you do all the exercises from the book you will do fine.
    Grammar and reading were easy and English is not my first language. The first time I took the hesi I don't think the words on the vocab. part were from the book, maybe 3 or 4 were. But, the second time I guess most of the words were the ones from the book. I don't know maybe for an native American that section will be easier, but it wasn't for me.
