    Is anyone else taking the Kaplan on the 29th?

    I thought the last day to take it was the 28th? At least that's when I take mine.

    You're telling me! I just checked; it even looks like tomorrow's test is full, since it doesn't show up as a scheduling choice. I suppose people who feel ready for the test would rather get it over with. I'm not one of those people.

    Are you already getting full financial aid from the school including Pell, subsidized/unsubsidized Stafford Loans, and Federal Work Study? After that, you have private loans: Sallie Mae, Wells Fargo has a program, etc. The Financial Aid office may be able to point you in the right direction.
    That was helpful Blue Felt Fedora. Yes so far I have been receiving full financial aid. The mistake I made was I should have accepted all the loans and saved it for later. I've only accepted the loan one time and that was less than $1500. From what I hear, the program is considered part-time so you only receive enough loans to fit that status. Well I will find out from the financial aid office. Thanks.

    That is a great question... I just wish I had an answer. I don't know why you couldn't take out some of the school loans that are offered, but I don't know much about it. I have a ten year old and I only work part time but I am fortunate enough to have a fiancee that will support me during this time.
    From what I hear you don't receive enough loans to cover all your basic needs. I could move in with family but they live too far away. I have a 7 year old and I'm a single mom. I do trust in the Lord and I'm confident He will make a way. I'm very happy for you for the support you have.

    You are correct, it was. I also had signed up for the 28th but it looks like the system allowed more people to signed up than it was supposed to and by the time they realized this the only dates available were the ones for this week or something like that so they opened a new date.
    I also applied for the program last year so hopefully we will make it this time. Good luck!

    To anyone who has taken the test already this year or maybe has taken it before, I had a question on the Math. When it says conversions what are they talking about..fractions to decimals..etc? is it just basic conversions? ml to l? etc..
    Hi Div618,

    I haven't taken it before, but according to those who have taken it, the math is basic. like u said, it comprises of fractions, decimals, percentages, metric conversions or units of measurement like converting from grams to miligrams, pounds to ounces, foot to inches, solving for X and stuff like that. I guess u have to memorize things like ( 1000mg=1g, 1foot=12inches). My KAPLAN is on the 21st.

    Good luck

    I wanted to know how many time can we take the kaplan exam? I know we have to apply to Ga Tech in order to get the invitation. Also, are you taking the kaplan for the same college this month?
    Hi, I know u can only take it once in a year for Gwinnett Tech. I m taking mine for Gwinnett next week. U mentioned Ga Tech?

    You may take the Kaplan as many times as you wish, but you may only take it once per year for Gwinnett Tech. The program coordinator mentioned other people were taking it ahead of time to familiarize themselves with the test format, but those "ahead of time" scores aren't considered by GTC.
