Miami Dade College (MDC) Spring 2013 Gen. FT/PT& Accelerated Nursing program - page 5

Hi all, I've just handed in my application to MDC for Spring '13. Right now I'm overall score is 82 but I'm planning on retaking the TEAS in August to improve that. If anyone has a book list... Read More

    I don't understand how "As program gpa" could be the score if they're supposed to be using the gpa of your sciences. When my sciences = 3.53, but As program is lower I know, awkward sentence there. What I mean is when I calculate my science gpa, (scores from Anat 1&2, anat lab 1&2, Chem and lab, and micro bio- that = 3.53 I don't know where the As Program score would come from.

    Hi everyone!
    I called Dade earlier in the week and found out that the avg teas score was 73, so that's a hopeful sign. Does anyone know how many students they accept for both accelerated and generic for Spring? I was told around 300 between both campuses and for both programs combined. That sounds like a large number, what do you guys think?

    I don't know anything about Homestead or the ASN bridge program, but roughly, Medical Campus accepts:

    150 students for generic full-time ASN
    50 students for generic part-time ASN
    50 students for accelerated ASN

    (One of those 50's may be a 40...can't remember for certain.)

    If the current class is averaging a TEAS V score of 73, then they're doing a lot better than any past class that has taken the same test; the average was around the mid-60's or so, a hair above the national average.

    With very good science grades and a TEAS V score of 80, you're pretty much a shoo-in, with a good margin. At least, that's how it was for the last couple of classes.

    Thanks for info.

    If you look it will show you where it calculates the grades from.

    Check on transcript and see which ones they counted and make sure you are using the correct transcript generator for the right program that can make a difference also.

    These are the science pre-reqs for the ADN program:

    BSC2085 A&P 1
    BSC2085L A&P 1 lab
    BSC2086 A&P 2
    BSC2086L A&P 2 lab
    CHM1033 chemistry
    CHM1033L chemistry lab
    MCB2010 microbiology

    That's 3+1+3+1+3+1+3 = 15 credits.

    If you didn't take microbiology lab you're silly, though it doesn't count in the calculation. It will likely matter if you want to go on for a BSN, though.

    I took the TEAS in July and the average score then was 64.9 so if the average now is 73 it increased by about 8%. I scored in the 89th percentile (I got an 80). I don't know what percentile I'm in now. =/

    Ohh crap, I thought 73 was low and those who didn't do so hot on the teas had a chance of getting in. I got a 78 on the teas and it said my program percentile was an 86%. Does that percent even matter when being considered for admission?
  10. by   nursea92
    No. Its just gives you an idea of how many people did better than you. The later you took it, the more accurate the program percentile is. Looks like the average is higher this year. Last year it was in the 60s. Now I'm getting nervous.

    Which program did you apply to? I applied to Generic and bridge full time.
  12. by   anxiouslyhopeful
    Me too, I applied to both

    If the average TEAS V score was about 65 (it actually dropped slightly from last spring to fall for MDC ADN applicants), I don't see how it could be 73 now. That just doesn't add up.
