Chattahoochee Tech 2013

  1. 0 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 taking the TEAS V in August and currently have a 4.0 in my sciences and a 3.8 overall (I think). Does anyone know how many people usually apply and how many get accepted?

    I am starting the ADN program this Fall (2012). I had a TEAS V score of 87.8, and I believe my GPA was a 3.6 or 3.7 (have to double-check my transcripts). They said 500+ applied. There are 44 of us in the class -- I believe they accepted 50, but a few have already left (I know a few ended up receiving acceptance letters to other schools that they preferred).

    Good luck to you!

    would a 3.5 be acceptable you think? i think that is what i would be looking at but im not sure i havent finished my classes yet. I heard that it was moreso based on the TEAS test than GPA is this true?

    I looked on the CTC Website and saw the following for admission:

    TEAS (100 = 28.6%)
    Pre-admission general education courses GPA (50 = 14.3%)
    Sciences GPA (100 = 28.6%)
    Work Experience (25=7.1%)
    General Education Courses (25=7.1%)
    Interview (Maximum 50= 14.3%)

    It looks like the TEAS and Sciences GPA are the most heavily weighted. From what I hear (thanks EricaBeth) it looks like the CTC program is not one of the easiest to get accepted into. I'm shocked when I hear from other posts (in other states) that they had a TEAS in the 70's and a 3.0 and got accepted.

    Hello! I'm also a student at Chatt Tech, hoping to apply for the Fall 2013 admittance for the ADN program - the ONLY concern I have is that, despite all my A's and good GPA, that the one B I received in A&PII will hold me back. What were your pre-req grades like, if I may ask??

    I think you are good if you got a B in APII. Very few people got A's and B's and I noticed that lots of people in my A&P II were taking it for the second time since they got a C or lower the first time around. I'm retaking English 1102 and Psych again since I got a B in those a long (long) time ago, especially since I have some time before the application deadline. I'm taking the TEAS V soon...how about you? That's really what's making me so nervous!

    I haven't taken the TEAS yet, but I want to soon. I plan on definitely taking it twice. Unless I score in the 90's on the first try! I'm concerned about the math portion. I'm so awful at math. I have a friend that I'm going to have tutor me beforehand haha. My GPA is good, my grades are good, I just have to get through Micro and the TEAS and apply in May!

    I'm not good with math myself, but I did not find the TEAS math to be too difficult. Surprisingly, all my peers and I found the science to be the most difficult (and that's my strong area).

    If you don't mind me asking, what kinds of questions in both math and science did they ask? Is there anything in particular I should be focusing on?

    To be honest, I don't recall what all was on the math. I know I used the ATI study guide, and it covered all of the math I encountered on the test. It definitely offered adequate preparation. Can't say the same for the science portion. While the ATI study guide was very helpful and prepared me in a lot of ways, there were several questions on the test that were never mentioned in the study guide. Also, some of the questions were really specific for anatomy and physiology. I managed to handle them because I had just completed A&P and Micro. I would DEFINITELY do an A&P review prior to testing.

    Hey everyone! I just wanted to stop by and wish everyone luck for their application for their program next year!

    I was originally on track to apply for ADN program Fall 2013 but finance issue and some other circumstances came up and I recently applied for the LPN program for Spring 2013.

    I wish you all luck! The program is really tough and just making it through all the pre-reqs with great grades and a perfect score on the TEAS is a challenge in itself.

    If you guys know of anyone applying for the same program I am, I began a forum for LPN here:
    http://allnurses.com/georgia-state-n...ge-761599.html

    Right now it's just me and another girl who applied, but we would really like some new people to join in. Sometimes it is comforting to meet others on the same path as you, I'm sure we all know that! Also some great conversation can help the time pass waiting for an acceptance letter in 3 months! lol

    Thanks everybody!!! Again, GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL!!

    I just posted my TEAS V experience (long) on the TEAS V 2012 section if you want to know some details about the experience itself. Hope it helps! I took it at CTC and the room was packed. She said they had to keep adding sections because they were filling up right after they were posted on the website.
