Chattahoochee Tech 2013 - page 2

Thought it would be a good time to start a new thread for all of us that are applying to Chattahoochee Tech for fall 2013! I would love to see what you received on the TEAS and your GPA. I plan on... Read More

    I believe they will start info sessions at the beginning of 2013...that's when they did it for 2012. Have you taken the TEAS V yet? I plan on taking it again next month. I got an 82...but I heard that 84 will be the cut off (or at least it was for last year)...I think I can bump my score up since I am now familiar with the test and I didn't even finish 6 of the math questions.

    I read on the site that you can take the TEAS twice per calendar year. And they only count your best two. Does that mean if I take it before December 31st I could take it twice next year before applications are due? I have not taken it yet but the math worries me. I did poorly on my first SAT and had to study really hard to bring it up. Ugh.

    It is my understanding that you can take it twice before December 31st and then a new calendar year starts January 1st...maybe someone who really knows for sure will post. The official meaning of "calendar year", according to Webster's Dictionary, is January 1 to December 31st. I did notice that before the TEAS test (at Marietta campus) they asked everyone which attempt this was for them and gave them a corresponding code (1st, 2nd, one needed the 4th try number)...there were lots of 2nd try people, so I just assumed they were getting their two tries in for the year?? Math scared me as well (haven't had math in over 20 years), but I found that a) take the online test you can buy from ATI since the questions were very, very similar and b) keep an eye on the time when you take the practice tests. I actually knew how to do the questions (the practice tests really prepared me) but ran out of time, so many answers were blank and that brought my score down. Good luck to you!

    Hey you guys.... I took the TEASV this past Friday @ CTC and it was definitely the science more so than math!!!!! I'm re-taking it but suggest you brush up on chemistry and earth science. Good Luck

    Anyone heard if the school will have an information session? I haven't seen anything on the website yet.

    Go to their web site and email one of the advisors as they can give you all the info you need. Just be aware the CTC ADN is not accredited and you may possibly have some issues getting employment after you graduate.

    We're about to have our NLNAC review, and everyone from our previous classes is now employed. I don't think anyone has anything to worry about.

    They have posted the application online and you can mail or drop the application to the Austell campus. Has anyone heard what the teas scores are looking like from the current applicant pool??

    Well I can tell you that I have a 78 and someone else in my class made a 92. Geez!! Way to knock out the competition! ! Scores will probably be all over the place!

    Alright everyone - that time is drawing near!! I just took the TEAS this morning and am pretty happy about the results - scored an 88.0% overall. The math was roughest for me - I'm just weak in that area period. Breakdown of scores: Math 83.3, 85.4 on Science, an 86.7 on English, 100 on Reading. I really utilized the ATI Study Guide and also other online resources. I didn't study as hard as I planned, but I'm still satisfied with the outcome.

    How is everyone else that's applying for Fall coming along? TEAS scores for anyone else?

    I recently made an 84 but I read last year they cut off at 84.4. They did change some things for this year but I'm sure it's still going to be who has the best scores. I applied for both this program and the PN program but really don't think I went to school for a certificate. I am going to apply for West GA Tech too. Their cutoff is June 1st.

    I just received an email that qualified applicants will receive an email with interview dates and times the week of June 12. Here we go!!

    Hi all! I got my email notification this morning about when letters are expected for qualified students. I'm so nervous b/c my highest teas score was 74. I do have a 3.8 GPA but I don't know if that will be good enough. Does anyone know what the interview will be like?
