    Thank you mjl88.

    I will take the teas again next week. I ran out of time in the reading and

    guessed 11 questions. That won't happen again. It was a stupid time

    maintenance problem. Got it next

    week and am sure I can get an 80 at least this time around. How are

    your scores??

    I've already turned in my apps for all 3 programs (accelerated, generic full time, and generic part time) at MDC. I'm not sure of my overall science GPA as I'm finishing A&P I & II, labs, and Micro next week. I have A's in all as far as I can tell at this point though. I did get an 86.7 on the TEAS, and am not planning to take it again at this point. Now it's just a waiting game. Good luck to us all, and hopefully we find out soon!!!

    Hey Canelaw,

    Good score. Just curious, which program would be your preferred one?

    Good question. Part of me would prefer the accel, just so I could finish faster. However, since I live in Homestead, the drive to med campus would be a nightmare! The other part of me would love the FT Homestead program so I wouldn't be driving that far all the time. The PT program would definitely be my last choice. We'll see what I get in though....

    I'm sure that would be a pain to drive from Homestead to the med campus. But good luck in your acceptance and decision!

    When you turned in your application, did the advisor give any feedback or info regarding the process or what the average scores have been?

    Well I finally got around to applying for all 3 nursing tracks today. The advisor (don't remember his name) who was helping me was answering my questions about the program. I'm not sure how accurate they were but he seemed like he knew what he was talking about. I asked him from what he's seen, what has been the average TEAS scores from the applicants and he said mostly in the 60's and 70's, a few in the 80's and maybe one or two in the 90's. Granted this was just one advisor but he said he noticed a lower trend in scores this semester from last semester. So this is good news for us

    Also, just in case somebody wasn't sure, there's 50 seats for Accelerated, 150 seats for full time generic, and 50 seats for part time generic, with most of the applicants seeking the full time generic. As a previos poster said in another thread I believe, there has been so far about 600 applicants and will be more as the deadline approaches.

    The advisor said that the way MDC determines accepting students is by their competitive score. My competitive score is an 87.7 and he said that anything in the high 70's and above has a good chance of getting in. BUT AGAIN, TAKE THIS WITH A GRAIN OF SALT. THIS WAS JUST HIS OBSERVATIONS.
