    Okay, good just making sure I have read so many different post on here but anyways. yes I made it and I am sorry that you didn't make it in but there is a rumor that they are going to widen the program for January 2013 and they will pick 50 students instead of 25 even though they only pick 17 this time, so I was told. (you might want to ask your nursing adviser).. I was rooting for you to get in I saw where you posted about taking the TEAS V exam.. but have you considered other schools close to you? That was ALWAYS a option I left open for myself. What was your TEAS V score?

    Oh really? 50 ppl? I dont know why they only accept so little now.This is my second time trying. I made a 64 on the teas test. I didnt finish 15 questions in the reading part...wasnt paying attention to the time. I have a 3.4 gpa. I spoke to a girl that had a 2.8 and she said she got in. she scored in the 70s on her teas. I am really really in awe at how she got in. but anyways I have been looking into other schools but they are so far away. but anyways....what did you score on you teas?

    Ya that was what I was told but like I said, I would speak to an adviser. I made a 62 but I have a 4.0 so my overall score was a 50. I think the reason why I did so poorly cause I had to guess on the reading part and some of the math bc I was running out of time. I wish I would've managed my time better, but hey I can't fix that. I did better on my practice TEAS V test. I will just blame my low score on nerves and running out of time lol . Are you going to try again in the fall? You do know they will be selecting again? That was one of my plans if I didn't make it..

    Yeah I will try one more time if I dont go to southern crescent. Im looking into that school as we speak. But a friend of mine tried to get in and she got a 71 and had a 3.75 and she didnt get in either. They say they look at the combine score but honestly I dont know anymore. I never in my life expected to be rejected twice! I think they need to raise the TEAS score to a low 70, so the selection process wont have so many applicants and those of us that do better will have a better chance getting in. Oh and I did way better on my practice test....I made an 86........If I retake it in the fall, Ill be sure to pay close attention to the readingpart and make sure I dont run out of time. Oh and I have tried calling and adviser, emailing them too, and no one ever responds.Its frustrating! But keep in touch with me....when is your mandatory meeting?

    She should have got in, is she a transfer student? I think that even if they raise the score they are going to have a lot of students applying to get in because we have no Idea what score we have to pass until we actually sit down. Did you leave your advisor a message? They usually call back..I think that you should study all summer and then retake the TEAS V in the fall, you have to try at least on more time. I think southern crescent is a good school but you have to have at least have a 3.0 to even try to get into the program but they combine your GPA with your TEAS V score too and I don't think they take that many students either; but it will be worth looking into as a back up plan. I will be stay in touch and you do the same and my meeting is sometime this month and I will let you know how that goes, from what I hear it lasts for hours.. I'm excited!

    Hey! No she isnt a transfer student. ABout raising the Teas score....I think it would be a good idea because so many students just hit the high 50's mark. So I feel it would eliminate a bunch of applicants making it to the selection process and they wouldnt have so many "maybes" to sift through. They seriously need to widen the program. On the adviser, I have called her, emailed,and dropped by on mondays and tuesdays and she will not make any attempt what so ever to contact me back. It is absolutely uncalled for. I am starting to wonder what her deal is. I am going to try ONE more time at this school! just ONE more.......if I can even get my adviser to contact me!!! ugh so frustrating! I am going to stay in touch dont worry!
