    I am not a current GTC student. I currently go to Athens Tech. I have a 3.5 GPA. I'm hoping to do well on the Kaplan!

    @janellybelly: Sounds like you have everything well in hand. That's good news.

    @aalewine: How is Athens Tech? When I was looking at schools, I visited there and attended their info sessions. My daughter has a few friends who are students there, too. For me, it came down to them and GTC.

    Out of curiosity anyone know what the gwinnett tech program uniform looks like? If they are short sleeved, are you permitted to wear a long-sleeve undershirt?

    The uniforms are white and yes you can wear long sleeve underneath

    I hate Athens Tech...uou can never get help from the administration! The teachers are good and sometimes you will get an awesome one like my anatomy teacher! But I hear once you get into your program everything changes so I hope that is true!

    Oh, wow. I guess I made the right choice, then. Is your anatomy teacher male? When I went to the info session, there was a male anatomy teacher who came in to speak with us.

    Back on topic for the thread...who's studying for the Kaplan and how are you studying? My study partner and I are reviewing our A&P II lecture notes every week after we finish our Pathophys homework.

    He was Dr.Nichols. And you definitely made the right choice!

    I also would like to know how everyone is studying for the Kaplan. I am currently not taking classes just waiting to see when to take this test!

    Hi, everyone! I am currently studying for the Kaplan (better safe than sorry). I am applying for Fall 2013 with a 3.9 GPA. I took the TEAS V for other schools that I am applying to and scored an 84 overall. I think that is pretty darn good considering the national average. Plus that put me in the 99th percentile. So hopefully brushing up on science will help me be prepared for the Kaplan. Wishing everyone the best! And I agree....the wait is killer...

    Same here. Good luck.. Have you received your invitation letter for the mandatory meeting yet? I have not.

    FYI: I saw Saadia Jackson and GTC this afternoon. Emails have not gone out yet. HOWEVER, physical letters were sent via USPS, probably on Monday. So keep an eye on your mailbox!

    These are the letters that will invite you to the mandatory meeting, which will be taking place on February 27. There will actually be two meetings on that date, one at 3pm and the other at 6pm. It doesn't matter which one you attend, as they will both have the same info, but you MUST attend one of them.

    She didn't know for certain when sign-ups for the Kaplan would be. They're trying to set it up so we sign up at our meetings, but we may end up having to come back a couple days later for signups.

    Ladylynn6,

    Thanks for the "heads up". What book are you studying in preparation for the KALAN?
  13. by   RN_Diva_2B
    Thanks for the info...will certainly be on the lookout! And I am using Kaplan's Nursing School Entrance Exams guide. Also asking around to see what main science points are covered...scouring the internet...whatever it takes!
