    Thanks for the advice, Ive been to the website and looked at the practice tests...My program is a masters program not a BSN, i already have a bachelors degree...My program is a relatively new idea, a masters degree that is between an MSN and a BSN, its a masters program but it doesnt give you the qualifications that an MSN would, like for example I wont be qualified to be an NP but further down the road I can teach and go into management...the reason I chose the program is bc there was no waitlist and its a really good program, its accelerated and is 15 months long or 5 semesters (no breaks..)...oh and i get to start this month...

    Im not sure I understand what you are saying about the GRE, is it all computerized? Depending on how I answer one question determines the questions that follow? This is going to sound weird probably but my entrance counselor said that as long as I take it it doesnt matter my score they just need to have a score to keep on record. My program doesnt require a GRE from every student but since im still working on some pre reqs for nursing school they want me to take it. Ive looked into some of the review programs but they are a bit costly...by the way are you an OSU alum? I graduated last year!!!go bucks
    I have one more year left at OSU! I took the GRE last month though in preparation for grad school (I like to plan ahead). Overall, I did well and the test really isn't that bad as long as you do some practice exams. Don't waste your money on the review programs- they cost over $1000 here in Columbus! Based on your practice scores, it looks like you're going to do great!

    yay congrats! i had the time of my life at OSU! i still miss it, i just moved back to cincy from columbus this past october i remeber looking into those programs they advertised in the union and stuff and i remember how expensive they were!!! i wish i had 1000 to take it!!! oh and just a piece of advice...i crammed everything in my last quarter so that i could graduate in the spring in hopes of getting an awesome speaker....yeah we got some correspondant for 48 hours...definetly not worth waiting for, her speech sucked...it was blistering hot and under that black grad gown..ughhh..lol it was a day ill never forget but i think i lost 10 lbs just sitting in the stadium...they call each grad student by name....yikes..good luck!

    End of Fall 98. I tend to say winter, because the freakin' ceremony was in winter, but it was during x-mas break. I believe we were the last class to graduate through St. John's.
