Hi everyone, well I'm starting this convo so we all can get an idea of who, what, when, and where with FSCJ. Good topics would include testing materials, the average ranking of points for the upcoming term, and any other useful... Read More

    I know it says ENC 1101 is counted for your grades. What if you got a higher grade in ENC1102? Do they count that?
    I don't have the nursing application in front of me but if ENC1102 is in the list of classes they say you can use then yes they will count the higher grade from the ENC1102 class. I called the nursing office about that myself since I had taken two different humanities classes and got a B in one and an A in another. They said that since both of the classes were listed as classes I could have taken to satisfy that portion of the application then the higher one would be counted (I highlighted the one I wanted to be used on the transcript I turned in with my application just to be on the safe side )

    Thats so many points good job. Its just confusing bc my raw scores are INS: 44, RC: 19, AA: 58. Like my raw scores are low but I thought I did so much better on the test bc it says I got in the 97th percentile for AA, 95th percentile for Reading, and 86th percentile for Natural Sciences. So a little confused.
    So you would have 77.44 points from the NAT to add to your points from your grades...is that what you calculated too?

    Remember that the percentile rankings are just comparing your scores to others who have taken the test and not the percentage of questions you got right in that section. The upside of that is since you scored so highly on your percentiles you probably have a good chance of getting in to the program since you ranked so high compared to others who have taken the test (not taking into consideration your points from your grades).

    Last time I heard they accept 96 people total into the Summer class and only 24 of those are for nights/weekends. The Fall and Spring classes are bigger (144).

    Aghh! I wish I would have asked that as well. I received a B in ENC1101 but an A in ENC 1102 and I had the same thing for humanities. I used my B's=( That would have put me at 211. Oh well, I think my points are still decent enough to get in. If not I sure hope fall will not be a problem.

    I applied for days for the Summer 2013 start. However, if I do not get accepted this term, do you know if in Fall if I apply for nights and weekends and do not get selected for NW's but my points are strong enough for days will they automatically put me in days or just automatically cut me out because my points were not strong enough for N/Ws?

    I feel like my application has been in for so long. I keep looking at the date and it seems like time is creeping by. Does anyone have the new app for fall term? I am going to apply just in case but I am really really hoping summer works out!

    I think as long as those grades are on the transcript you turned in they will automatically take the higher ones (assuming they are from classes that they deem as meeting the application criteria). I just highlighted the ones I wanted them to use so they wouldn't overlook it (I was a little OCD when it came to my application).

    As for the N/W vs days thing...you have to indicate on your application if you are interested in both programs or just one. If you are interested in both, you have to rank the order of preference. So, if you applied for only N/W they will not consider you for days automatically. You would, therefore, need to mark that you are applying for BOTH N/W and days and that N/W would be your first choice. If for some weird reason your score wasn't high enough for nights they wouldn't disqualify you for days unless your score wasn't high enough for days either (99.99999% sure this won't be the case for you).

    I think this will all end up being a moot point for you anyway since your score is so high and you'll be sure to get into Summer Best of luck! Let the waiting continue....

    Hello everybody,

    I have a question concerning the application..
    On the application, they're asking if we prefer the daytime or evening classes, I think I checked both because it doesn't matter to me, I just wanna get in, but I did not indicate my first and second choice. Do you think they will reject my application, thank you alot.
    Ohh one more thing, do you know the cut off?
